The following images are all currently modeled within the game. I did nothing but switch the current guns with inaccessible guns. I did not modify anything else, no jury rigging. The devs made all of the following themselves, specifically for the T110E5. Draw your own conclusions, make your own demands.

This is a T110E5 with 155mm T7

This is the T110E5 with the 105mm T210 smoothbore.
http://i189.photobuc.../shot_004-3.jpg

Basically, the devs seriously considered arming the T110E5 with the T30 gun, and the presence of the T210 105mm smoothbore basically confirms the T95 is either in really strong consideration, or is currently being modelled as we speak for introduction into the game.

T10 mediums are confirmed, they are not suggested or under consideration. You don't model a gun for a tank you're not going to make. Sorry for ruining the surprise everyone, lets start dealing with the implications now.

EDIT - correction, T210 105mm. Was a little overzealous and didn't immediately fact check.

Will be adding more tomorrow, since there are 3 other unidentified guns.

DOES THIS MEAN WE ARE GOING TO GET THE 155MM ON THE T95 (MEDIUM TANK)?

Holy shit would that be confusing. Anyhow, this is incredibly interesting, it really is. Excellent find. Hold on, this could get very interesting.

Also,

Not sure what to think at the moment, already seems like we are getting a semi slow T10 Med with the T110.

Unless it's actually been ready and was intended to be a tier 10 medium all along, but then they said "Eh, let's make it a heavy!" We know there are a LOT of tanks that are finished but aren't in-game yet. Like the entire French TD line...

I wouldn't doubt for a moment that T110 was intended for a tier 10 medium, but plans changed.

I'm model-swapping that 105 onto my Patton. xD

Not only is that pessimistic, but you are ignoring the fact the devs bothered to model the 155mm on the T110E5.

Wouldn't be the first time they put a hard-hitting gun on a medium. T-44 with the 122mm, for example. Massive damage, long reload on a medium.

One way or another, they clearly intended it to be a vehicle with a tech tree attached to it. Either that or the modeling team just got really bored..

Of course, the idea that they intended it to have the 155 isn't beyond belief either. Just giving other possibilities.

Make sure you save those models. Incase they scratch them from the final release.

From the team that brought you the T29/T34/T30 lineup? I doubt it. They would probably spend their time modeling the biggest guns they could onto the T-54 or making a Jagdtiger gun variant for the Luchs, just for the lulz.

When it comes to American heavy tanks, the devs have shown a clear pattern of not really caring.

afaik the T210 cannon has a muzzle velocity of 1740m/s(info from the T95 medium thread in the American med sub forum section). If this gun exist ingame then what will the penetration behttp://cdn-frm-us.wa...mile_amazed.gif

Agreed, The BL10 is a great gun, but as we all know the 704 and the ISU lack in both armor and health, which is why the heavier armored tanks like the T95 and the T30 ETC ETC ETC get a lower pen gun.

Would they really give us a 285 pen gun?, because I can't see them  doing it. Hoping I am wrong and they will give us a 285 pen gun.

I'm talking about over all armor and health, and the gun dose not do that much damage as the BL10 anyways, so you get a pen advantage but no bite to it.

my own opinion on WG'S M.O. is introduce a vehicle with very low stats, then up them a few times until the vehicles starts performing well with its equal tier counterparts. and then they adjust them on occasion.

It's really important that you guys play the shit out of the t110 every chance you get, since the devs go on the data they mine from test more than player feedback. if anything they use the tone of the feedback as an indicator as to how close they are getting to a desired and potentially profitable tank

of course i could be  completely wrong. my creeper level analysis skills are off from time to time

T10 mediums are confirmed, they are not suggested or under consideration. You don't model a gun for a tank you're not going to make.

Happens , see Maus turret for the E-100.

Alternatively, lifting historical/experimental guns and putting them on vehicles that were never planned to use them is also common practice - evidenced all up and down most of the tank lines.

The gun being considered as an option for the T110 or M103  is a much more likely scenario than the devs planning t10 mediums (which they have rejected on more than one occasion).

Not that I would mind t10 meds, mind you - I'm prefer meds myself - I just see that conclusion as a bit of a stretch.
