  1. Because tomorrow is the 1st April I’m not sure if I should believe that this is true but it also don’t have april fools stats.


    1. wait until you see the AE, Concept, 777, or like literally any other tier 9 lmao
      hate to break it to you but if you’re fighting a hulldown tier 9 heavy in a tier 7 of any kind you’re playing wrong

  3. Welcome to your next Tier-IX premium tank!

    If the Russian market is toast for the foreseeable future, WG has to come up with something to pry Dollars and Euros out of the rest of its core audience.

    1. Sadly it probably is. What it should be is part of a mini-branch on the British heavy line, followed by the Chieftain Mk. 6 (which has been sitting in the game files for years) at Tier X.

  4. That this tank actually exists at Bovington suggests this is the real deal. Whether the game needs more tanks like this (probably not) is besides the point if WG decides they have a commercial winner.

  5. I don’t know why anyone needs more than 4 premium tanks ever.
    I don’t need anymore.
    I won’t pay for anymore.

  6. I recall the rumor on here from last year that they were planning on releasing a chieftain line towards the end of this year. Could this be a premium for it, the tech tree tier 9, or did they just give up and decided to only do a tier 9 premium?
