What makes you think they're marathon tanks and they're not just going to sell them?

And you are forgetting the Turtle MK1 also was added yesterday.

 

My guess is one marathon and the other two will appear in the Christmas calender.

I believe so because they were added to public servers first. If they wanted to sell them, they usually announce about them in the luncher articles? 

and because they said down, purchase is unavailable.

I guess the German could be a Halloween event marathon reward. It looks kinda spooky.

Well, we have had the American Challenge marathon already (TS5), as well as French, Italian, British, Russian and a hybrid Czech Challenges / marathons, but we havent had a German Challenge yet. So when the new marathon comes, it will most likely be either the M48 RPZ or the E75 TS. Since all the Challenges came with a 3d style and the M48 RPZ does not have a style (yet) but the E75 TS does, my money is on the E75 TS being the next marathon tank (in November).

 

The M54 Renegade, Turtle Mk1 and the M48 RPZ will either go straight to sale or will be included in the Christmas boxes. Oh, and the Kampfpanzer 50t has already been confirmed as the Ranked mode reward tank (http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/711355-onto-the-supertest-a-tier-ix-german-medium-the-kampfpanzer-50-t/)

I usually avoid WOT during marathons. I have enough Tier 8 premiums, fortunately I don't need to put up with the god-awful teams to try and get another.

I don't know, but probably as you mentioned it.  

But if they were so, then why WG have added them now?

Fully aimed dispersion was never much to go on in this game and means very little in regards to accuracy. Take a look at the aim time and soft stats on that tank comparison, both are superior to all the others. So while it's fully aimed bloom will be marginally bigger than the tanks with .3 something, it will land more shots than all the others and will do so while poking and scooting about unlike the others that will have their dispersion circles bloom the size of the moon while moving about.

They haven't all been 3D Styles, most IIRC Have actually just been 2D Styles. Forgive me if I'm mistaken on any but it's something like (also I am ignoring older stuff like the T-44-100, WZ-111 And so on):

CaerAX (2D Style)

EBR 75 (nothing?)
Progetto 46 (2D Style)

T-34S (2D Style)

TS-5 (nothing?)

Skoda T 27 (3D Style)

Exactly, but I'm hopping for T54E2 to be a marathon/challenge tank. Because I just have T 34B which is a s...?

And also hopping for turtle to be a marathon tank as well.  :D

in reality these two vehicles were present in the game files already before this patch

what makes you suppose that they will be as rewards for a marathon?
