WG have messed up! I tried to buy a Progetto 46 for Frontline after seeing how heavily they dominate, only to find out they have removed it for no apparent reason (hint: other than it being OP in frontline). WG doesn't even want our money that's how unbalanced that tank is.

It's one of many tier 8 premiums that appears at random now and then every few months. As with most tier 8 premiums not in the tech tree for gold. As not all of them are in the store constantly and make rare appearances. Some more than others. And others are sold not even once a year. To be removed, you first need to add it permanently to something. Progetto never was added as a permanent sale. 

 

And why do so many have it? It was a marathon reward the first time it appeared. So many got it for free. Tho the tech tree tier 8 Italian has the same gun, same burst damage, almost 2x the engine power, but a taller profile.

Unbalanced? Depends. It's not broken or OP vs some other tier 8 prems. It's just a tricky tank to play well. If you use all the burst damage and fire with one round in the chamber more so then 3. You have 1200 dpm.

Irrelevant when you consider how well it is doing and how many people abuse it.

It's a great income machine. I suspect that's why so many like it. As it farms FL credits rather well as it's cheap to run. It's an effective tank when you have more then one of it due to the burst damage. Alone in randoms, it's not that strong. 

 

Then again the 2nd and 3d most played tank I see is the SU-130 PM and the Carnarvon AX for FL. As both of those... also have been free marathon rewards.

I had one rented from some mission from long ago. Nothing special, really, except auto-reloader.

It's a mainstay in CW's/Skirmishes so it's among the best of it's tier and class.

Just grind and buy the Pantera 44. Great tank that is very similar. Besides it costs only in-game credits, so no money wasted and an incentive for WG to improve balancing and matchmaking. Win-win for you, the entire WoT community, and in the end of the day, Wargaming.

I didn't go to see Led Zeppelin at Knebworth in 1978 because I couldn't wag school. I still feel bad.

I didn't see REM at the Apollo in Manchester, the last chance before they played Stadium only, because I went to a Hillsboro benefit gig instead.

 

You missed the boat, get over it and stop blaming WG.

We have 9 episodes of FL left. I am sure WG will sell the Progetto again.

Progetto is easily the best T8 medium tank. It does everything very well.

I like blackdog and LT 432 much better. Sometimes skorp is good on prolonged attacks (but strangely enough I don't find skorp as good when defending), and in the city the defender is great.

I find that 46 doesn't have very good DPM and the camo isn't very good and the gun is quite terrible at shooting on the move, and alpha is the same as blackdog.

 

Maybe I just need to learn to play - there is always that possibility, but I only find it mediocre in FL. I don't know.

It's not purely because of the gun why it's so popular. It's the speed of the tank that makes it so strong (combined with the gun characteristics).

It's a good hybrid. As long as you don't constantly use your burst damage when alone. As my T-44-100 don't mind losing half it's HP to fight someone with a long reload on the rest. Tho when you have 2 other Progettos with you vs the same target, it matters little. And on FL... that happens rather often vs one target.

You are missing the point.

It may be inferior, but it makes more credits/xp, and FL is not about winning battles, its about credits/xp and racing through the tiers to get the reward tanks as quickly as possible. That is why the forum is full of threads complaining about the FL grind. Or rather, thatis the implication of all those threads. 

Personally, I am playing it with the intention to win battles and to have fun in a slightly different format. Any rewards at the end will either be achieved or they will not.

So if WG had put the progetto in the premium shop we'd have had someone accusing greedy WG of cashing in on FL by putting it up for sale...

Removed from where.

 

It has never been on sale in game and it is only ever in the premium shop for short periods.
