So there is one tank representing each WoT year and its most memorable change. and to the right to the premium advertisement tank there is a covered up tank representing the things to come.

 

i don't think that there is much to it but still the shape it somewhat odd. odd enough to use a non-conventional design that includes some special mechanic like a hydraulic suspension perhaps? one can see a little bit of it underneath the cloth. also the rear of it sticks out a bit. and i am not sure about its base color as it is currently night time which makes it harder to identify. maybe Swedish or Chinese?

 

earlier garages also had covered up tanks but those were mostly easy to identify and already present in the game. this one is clearly something else.

 

well, it might be nothing but i doubt an artist would come up with this weird shape all on his own.

What exactly is so ''weird shaped'' at that covered tank? It looks like a average tank to me...

It's most likely a T-72, although why? I have no idea.

You are probably right, as the little bumps next to the barrel point it to being a tank destroyer.

Free cam mod users have already seen a T-72 under there. But I'm still saying it's the T-90. It's extremely low res to say for sure. But still looks like one. As that's exactly what they have shown before. 

 

Tho this could even be a hit to the April 1st joke a few years ago... where it was seen fully modeled and driving around. As last year's anniversary garage had a rainbow briefcase in it. I'm just assuming so considering the whiteboard with jokes from past events. 

 

The same model can be seen here at 0:48 driving at the back, and mentioned by name at 1:13. As in T-90. So I'm assuming it's the same model.

It wouldn't possibly be a chieftain then?

What is it with people picking out such little and minor things only to go all nuts on what it could be not thinking that might just be the way the garage was designed?..... Not to mention does it even matter?

Have you ever moved house? Have you had friends helping you to carry stuff ? If yes then you should know how people love to open up boxes and see what's in them. This is the same thing, there is something inside and people want to know, what it is.

 

The hull reminds me of Soviet design, and the bottom right part of the turret made me for a second think about The Chieftain, but it's more of Soviet thing as well. 

T - 72

Well it ain't t-62 with six roadwheels, could be t-64 (but it has smaller diameter roadwheels), t-72 or t-80. Additionally the turret shape is off for t-62, t-64, t-72 and t-80. Bore evacuator seems consistent with 125mm with it's middle placement. If the blocks on front hull are ERA it might also be t-90 due to 'integrated' appeareance, but again turret is off and why wouldn't it also have ERA fitted.

thanks for the answers guys. yeah, you are right, it looks like some modern Russian armor thus there is no hint in it unless it is meant to say the powercreep continues.

T-90, the tank with those fiery red eyes... but how modern tanks can we actually even expect to have in WoT?

Something tells me that WG knows there are free cam garage mods. They could simply have put it there as a joke in hopes it would cause a stir once people found out. Or... it's simply a homage to their April 1st joke and that's about it.
