Interesting.

 

We know it's there in the game files though.  Could just be some internal testing, or seeing if anyone is paying attention.

 

It was known as the Awful Panther and AFK Panther for good reason when it was in the game though.  If it does come back it needs some improvement, though quite how you improve a 40t light tank the size of a barn I'm not sure.

Easy, give it more armor.

 

Oh wait, it ain't russian, can't do that...furthermore it's german, oh they definitely can't do that.

 

Neat find though.

I am just hoping it will be a tier 7 again and not a tier 8 like they planned

It's not the first video it has appeared in of late. But a few Q&A's ago they said fans of the tank would be in for a surprise sometime this year.

It was actually pretty useful, back then. Perma tracking was a feasible option and it was dead accurate on the move, which allowed for some pretty nice track-cum-ram tactics. Also, regular AP penned the IS-7 just fine through the wheels. It just didn't do well at sitting in a bush, so people expecting a certain kind of performance from it were less than pleased with it. But I loved my little monster. I would like it back.

Maybe one of the bond shop tanks. A list of those is supposed to be compiled with the release of 1.5.

Tbh I would be surprised if it was. Pleasantly surprised that is. As besides the tier X's we do know of that would appear first. They did say old removed tanks would make an appearance there too later. I suspected they meant tanks like the T14 or Tog etc. Or even the SU-122-54. As in old removed tech tree tanks too. As the Auf panther is.

Maybe they've turned it into a tier IX premium and it will be the mystery reward tank in Front Lines.

I'm confident some here could make that thing work but I sure wasn't one of them. Horrible little big thing.
