Just saw this article on the WG facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/notes/world-of-tanks/supertest-tl-1-lpc-e-75-ts-m48a2-r%C3%A4umpanzer/10156612312618246/
Is everything this games need: more premium tanks! Actually, 2 tanks + a buldozer! It`s special power is you can dig your own hole and get hulldown!

Lol.  That would be neat.  If you pile the earth up in a mound does it just act as spaced armour or does it have the same magical, "thermo-nuclear, phase shift, deflector shield" impenetrability that the fixed "rubble" piles have ?

In the E75TS article is not said anywhere that it will be a premium. Most likely it will replace Tiger2 at tier 8 so the Tigers can be downtiered.

It says that it's ready to bolster the German tech tree, that could be a hint of it coming in as a regular tank. :unsure:

 

It'll be interesting to see how much spaced armour the bulldozer blade adds given that it shields most of the hull from the front. It's also mounted at a fair distance from the hull, meaning it could render the hull impervious to HEAT spam.

I'm sure they have used that term before for premiums.

But surely it's better to light the candle of hope than curse the darkness of .. er .. not hoping ... ? :unsure:

 

It's also got 360 alpha and better power/weight than the Löwe, seems odd that they'd introduce such a direct replacement as a new premium tank when there's already ahahhahahahahaha no, I can't do it, you're probably right.

Would make sense as the Tiger II has been marked for rebalance. Not buffs. 

 

But the other two might still be, or a CW reward later. Either way tanks are marked as premiums, even if they end up in the tech tree. As the VK 100.01 was, or the T71 CMDC

The tier 8 E75 has less hull armor and turret armor vs the tier 9. Heck it even has less hull armor vs the Tiger II. So let wait to "panic" about that until we know the full layout. Mantle might be strong. But the flat arears over the turret ring, or the ring it self might be paper vs it.

Asked eekeeboo about the E75 on the WoT stream and he's said that as far as he knows, they're all going to be premiums. Press 'F' to pay respects to tech tree adjustments. :(

To be fair, the standard E75 sports 160mm frontal armour and 120mm sides.

This one have 140mm front (presumably on the UFP as E75) and 80mm sides, the same as Tiger2. All depends on how thick the LFP is to see how strong it will be.

1 - boring, 2 - interesting but will likely be boring and or bad anyway, 3 - let me guess, a T95E2 that is not pure trash. :XD

I don't see downtiering the Tigers as "hope", what you will get is the Tiger 131 and KT©.

 

At least where they are they have something.

As long as you're looking for something out-dated and out-classed compared to almost anything else on those tiers, I guess that's fine then.

Never mind how thick it is.  Look how big it is.

The hull looks the same as E75, so LFP should be quite big or, at least, not 705A level of small.

It looks like a T95E2 with no cupola, and over 200 pen. It's already better. The German one basically is like the 59 Patton. That bulldozer shield is not gonna work if that cupola is trash like it's on the 59 or the T95E2.

The E75 remains to be seen. But I suspect like the Lowe, it won't be great in the open with that hull armor.

I love the look of the king tiger but I think it should be upgraded to T8 if the Tiger 1 stays 7.  But then people would probably complain about changes to their Premium tank even if its an upgrade

I wish this would be the case, but I don`t think WG will giving us a good tier 8 tech tree tank!
