Greetings come in, come in. Sit yourself down.
Tea, Milk and sugar are over on that table. If you want coffee, I suggest you try the French or German Forums! Mess Webley is over on that table. Please try not to get them mixed up.
Right then, to business. So why have I called you all here? Well I thought it would be an idea to share what we know about This British tech tree thingy that Overlord has mentioned several times. Seeing as this is going to require a spying campaign that will make the SOE proud. Lets just hope that we don't replicate the Germans efforts during WWII.
So far most of the information we've gleaned comes from questions to Overlord, in the Q&A thread.
We know (Keep in mind this is "Know" in the intelligence sense, so might be carefully laid trap or miss-information, or just plain damn wrong, as we've drawn the wrong conclusions from it) the following:

Challenger's CTR
The_Challenger is Wargaming EU'ss travelling Tank resercher and blowing stuff up expert. Hopefully he'll be able to stick his nose into the thread every once in a while and give us some information on what he's doing in regards to British tanks. Don't expect this to be a regular occurance as Chally wears many hats. Equally he might not be allowed ot tell us all the stuff he's working on.

The Silentstalker digest
Silentstalker (Our man in Moscow!) Has been translating the Russian Forums Q&A thread with the Devs. As the EU forum don't have a Dev of our own to replace the much missed Overlord Silent has been working his socks off to keep us in formed.
Obviously several mentions of British tanks have been made. Now up until now I've been putting these up in normal Updates, however the number of one liners coming out means that its getting a bit spammy. So as there have been no riots at the idea, I've decided to make the infomation from Silents thread a Weekly Digest.
Silentstalkers thread can be found here.

Bren carrier? Would be cool, having something in enemy team that can't damage you, no matter what you drive.

That's all we got?
No information about any of the cruiser tanks supposedly supposed to make up the majority of the tree?

Same here.
Tier 6 isn't a very fun tier as you keep coming up against tier 9 vehicles that generally just laugh at you then kill you with one shot.

Playing with the VK3601H wasn't too bad, since it's essentially a Tiger with the short 88 but one tier lower.

But playing with a tank which is oten described as 'a flatter Sherman' on that tier? Not looking forward to that.

Indeed. I do still have fun in my own VK3601H.

Hopefully the speed should let it get into some good positions but I'm not sure it'll have the armour or the firepower to make anything of them.

Think Easy 8 with more speed and lower profile.

If later Cromwell is one in game it also has 101mm front hull armor. My guess is that top gun will proably be experimental 75mm HV (Which later evolved to 77mm).

I can imagine the Comet being better than the T20 at least :)

Rock on Centurion, that's the one i'm looking forward to the most!

There may well be two Cromwells on the final tree - the 'normal' one at Tier 5, and the heavier-armoured (and possibly armed?) version at Tier 6.

That could work well.

We have similar thing with M4 and the Easy 8 on the American tree, so that certainly seems like an option.
