New premium tank on RU

On the 9th August, WoT will turn 6 on the RU server. There are rumors that a new premium tank will make its way into the store on that day, namely the AMX M4 1949, a French tier 8 heavy. Another potential candidate is the Rheinmetall Skorpion G with the exclusive camouflage.
An RU streamer says that the vehicle in question (which name he does not mention) performs outstandingly, even outperforming the famous Type 59.
It is obviously not known whether this will make its way on the other servers.

Below are some screens and stats:

– HP: 1450
– Hull armor: 180/40/?
– Turret armor: 250/120/?
– Engine: 1000 HP

– Pen: 232
– Damage: 300
– Reload time: 8.438s
– Precision: 0.345
– Aim time: 2.59s

  1. To be fair what isn’t outperfoming Type 59 these days? FCM 50t is way better and T-54 Mod.1 is atleast at the same power level, but only thanks to the fact that it doesn’t have premium mm.


    1. IDK how you guys think that.

      -7 degrees in a amazing T62 like turret for its tier.
      -Heavy armor from mid to long range with a slow mediums agility

      I basically can carry in it solo 65-70%.

      I mean for its armor level and the fact it never sees 10`s its still a greattank, guys just want the old days where the T59 was fighting a T23 with butter armor and it only had a 160 pen gun with no gold rounds. The T59 couldnt evne be penned.


      1. Heavy armor? You mean the one penetrated by your standard 170mm-ish pen shell?

        If you mean solo carry by means of hulldown GG sniping all game while others do all the heavy lifting, then yes, it can do that.


      2. Anyone who says Type 59 is shit should think about what they said again, no other prem mediums can create as much credits pershot like the type 59, I’m sure about that, and the T-54 mod 1 can meet tier X tanks, and it doesn’t have turret armor, unlike the Type 59 which has turret armor and an acceptable hull which can bounce Russian 122mm gun from 100m and above if you can angle them well. Does the FCM can hull down? or does it have epic camo which the type has? Not to mention the viewrange of the Type 59 is good enough for a tank that has decent armor (380m comparing to 360m of the T54 mod.1)

  2. Definitely believe that which you said.
    Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web
    the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
