Shoutout to WG for noticing the lack of russian premium heavy tanks btw...

:facepalm:

AFAIK, it's been confirmed that the Obj. 777 II Is not the Frontline Tier IX.

Possible experiment in Supertest to try a tier IX premium? As the Object 777 has been in the game files since 2015 (mainly at tier X) it is hardly new.

If it is not a reward tank for either FL or Ranked what are the options?

CW reward tank (tier IX would be a first)?

Purchaseable in the Bond shop?

Fails Supertest and goes back into the game files for another four years?

From where? Tho it's not been confirmed it is either tbh. It's just that when WG said non-researchable tier 9. Most just assumed.

Looks balanced. And looks cool also. Probably not fitting my gameplay, being quite paperish, but surely would be nice to have. :)

According to leggas it was confirmed to not be for FL On wot express. Quickly searching for it myself, pardon of course crappy Google Translate (LF Most likely = FL):

Block Quote

Now the action "three ax" is preparing to exit. However, he is 100% NOT a reward for LF and RB, for these modes will have their own unique tanks created with 0! That's it.

Can't be this one. The shape of the Emil corresponds. That tier 9 shape is more akin to Type 4 or Jagdtiger. Is taller than Emil.

The covers? It's the same two they have used on their portal for ages. I doubt it's related to that, as in the shape.

Yeah, this won't be either a FL or ranked reward, thankfully. I'm expecting this to be a bond-shop exclusive, but who knows.

well if they could they would i guess. After WWII soviet union was a leader in creating tanks so no surprise it can "offer" more tanks then other countries. Also main player base is from former soviet union same time company has best/easy access to soviet archives. I dont mind soviet tanks just they shouldnt be that op like last ones.

Even more Russian tanks........of course. This game really does not need *ANOTHER* Russian tank.
