It's Russian.  With those stats it will be T6.

They had no plans of selling mutant ever again either. T8 could be stretching it a bit even by their current balancing standards but first t9 prem would sound like WG.

Give me one single reason why they should not sell this as a tier 8 tank. You know what company we are talking about.

If it ever comes into the game this tank will be permatracked the second the battle starts and splashed with HE 24/7

Special event?

 

Tier 11?

 

Or a tier 10 heavy causing a nuclear-scale apocalypse it was meant to survive...

 

Pick your poison. Bet WG already picked. :trollface:

Easy. Lack of national teams/battles.

Considering how overmatching etc works in this game. They thought it would not work at all. And it was too broken to use. They have only said that about one tank before. And it's still not in the game years later. So let's hope they keep this out too.

In fact, it could be a tier 10 premium

Tracking wouldn't damage it as there's no hull behind the tracks, and its design means splashing HE on it wouldn't do much at all, either.

Are you sure about that? I reliably track+splash Obj.257's and VK45.02B's with my 112 for 150-300 damage. (sometimes shooting in the ground underneath the hull and mostly on the inner side of the tracks)

The whole concept of splashing HE implies you hit something and the following explosion of that impact will damage something weaker. By the looks of it, there won't be 40mm on the upper side of the hull, as it's made to bounce shells instead. The ground is too far from the hull to do consistent damage that way. Splashing tracks might do something, but it all depends how thick the hull will be.

Didn't Dez or another youtuber suggest this as tier 10 reward tank for the second set of missions? There were also some new lower tier tanks announced which currently don't fit in existing lines I think.

Marvelous idea let's give the best players the best tank so they can feast on others even more

Just to clarify, suggest is meant in the sense of 'explaining what might be the idea'. Not 'this is a nice idea I have'

I personally don't think its wise to have op tanks just for the best players (907), but I can understand this would be a major incentive for players to spend alot of time and money in an attempt to get it.

Is this an actual video of the tank moving and shooting or is just pics?   If its an actual tank moving I might open it... Otherwise not. I can stand that stupid monkey like accent. No offense.

Yeah it's been reviewed before by others.
