Armour, mobility, firepower – all in one tank. Now it only needs someone to command it...

It is not a coincidence that you can see this tank very seldomly in the game even though it is constantly available.

Is this a reverse Advent Calendar or something? A new premium each day?

 

Cobra 6

Yup.  I'm going to have to do a Cobra 6 on this one.

If I'm correct I read on TaP or DB that we will be able to get it for ''free'' in a marathon later

If leaks are credible Panhard wont be on sale until 21st February when marathon with that tank as main reward starts. No doubt in some kind of overpriced bundle you will need to grind down to reasonable figure for what, for all intents and purpose, is just tier 8 light tank.

This. Now imagine if they put the Progetto on sale considering how... popular the tank is these days. Would've been fun to read the reactions. :trollface:

It's just more clickbait for Frontline, nothing more.

A marathon would suck for me. I play 20 to max 50 games per week.... probably thiss will get me a 5-10 euro discount on an inflated bs bundle. 

Spoiler

They should at least offer a standard EBR 75 for 25 euro max.

Of course WG prefers if a lot of players pay a little vs a few that pay a bit more. Also selling the EBR to players that won't play it at all is good for WG???

Frankly I'm quite upset the way they've handled the wheeled vehicles so far. I'm willing to spend some money on the game for 1.5 year now, but there is simply nothing I wan't (at the price they offer it for).

A marathon for it would be bad for the game because we know what happens with these marathons, you get to the last few days and there's a hundred million of the same tank running around in every battle.

 

I thought they had actually made a sound move not releasing it for sale yet so it would be a shame to change that.

A Tier 7.5 tank with a Tier 7 gun that's constantly in 10/5 against Tier 9s and OP Tier 8s.

 

Until they bring in the MM changes that will see it up against tanks of similar strength, it will stay in my garage unused.

 

It's quite sad really as it was the first Tier 8 premium I ever bought.  I chose it specifically because of its Pref MM but since the 3/5/7 changes it has been at a MASSIVE disadvantage.

The recent buff from 175 pen to 183 (is that it ?  I don't know because I stopped playing it again, shortly after the pseudo buff) made no discernible difference.

 

Its gun is so weak that it cannot be played as a heavy.

 

Save your money - AVOID.

Have to agree on that and with everyone else.

 

I have it and it's currently collecting dust in the garage. Used to be a very good and fun tank to play. Some say its armor was OP at the time but if you knew were to shoot you could pen it. 

Now it has become obsolete mainly due to the gun. It doesnt cut it anymore, not even with the recent buffs. 

 

I wish WG would do something about it. Maybe add a second gun to it. A 100mm with lower alpha but better penetration and faster reload. That would be nice if done correctly.
