Similar to campaigns already in game, except instead of nation/tank type requirement you would have to drive certain historical vehicle.

For example separate campaigns for Sherman, Tiger, Panther, Stug, T-34 etc.

Also mission objectives could reflect some historical events that could be explained as educative info in mission description.

 

Just an idea.

Heard myth that they were removed since they made Russian tanks look bad in the game

It's been done and removed ages ago. As no one wanted to play an historical Sherman or Hellcat vs a Tiger II. As you needed people with Pz38's as well a Tiger II to pull it off. And when 90% in wait are only in the Tiger II. You can see the issues it had by that alone. And it died out rather fast. 

 

They had 4-5 battles with UK, US and Russia vs the Germans. And when the Germans have mostly PZ38na, Pz III's, Pz IV "not derp" and one Tiger vs an IS, SU-152 and a few T34's. I'm sure you can guess how well those battles went. Germans only won one. The two Tiger II's vs 128 mm pen Hellcats and 92 pen Shermans with an M3 Lee as support.

 

They also had national vs national battles in randoms at one point. So tier 7 games full of T29 vs Tigers. Or tier 6 full of Cromwells or Hellcats vs 3601's etc. When a nation is balanced for one style of play more so then not. It kinda doesn't work.

To add to Balc0ra's comment: There also used to be nation specific missions as well. Considering they were often tied to WW2 stuff, it were bad (or awesome) days to drive your german tank, as everyone wanted a piece of you those days.

I actually wanted to play a support role and mostly chose the lower tier tanks.

But yeah, too many other people only wanting to be the top tank.

It is conceivable that this could be done but as others have noted above WG's attempts at doing so have been woefully inept

You would think that with all the revenues coming in they might be able to recruit a reasonably intelligent 5 year old kid to advise them on this stuff.

That's not what I ment. Only you would have to use historical vehicle and enter random games normally. Mission would specify what are your goals. Just like campaigns are now except you do it in specific vehicle.

Just make it an event where you have to drive all tanks in order to get the reward.
