I've just seen these tanks on a website but have never heard of them. Are these real World of Tanks, tanks and if so what happened to them? Bt-SV, KV 220, SU-85l, PzKpfw 38735 (f), PzKpfw IV Hydraulic, PzKpfw B2 740 9 (f), MTLS-1G14, Type 62, WZ-111

Some of those were bonus tanks on other servers, or available for supertesters only. Some of those are chinese-server exclusive.

Basically, you're not going to see any of those on the US server, and you can't get them either.

What about the M6A2E1 and the A-32, why do you never see them, what happened to them and when could you get them?

M6A2E1 and A-32 were preorder bonustanks (Along with the Pz V-IV). They were only available if you preordered a pack of gold when the game went live for the first time, and you don't see them around because they suck.

I see a Mutant M6 every now and then....

But it's pretty much the only premium from that list that I see around

The PzKpfw 38735 (f) and  PzKpfw B2 740 9 (f) were available as Greman premiums but were removed after the release of the French Tree. They are still being played. There is a rumour that the PzKpfw IV Hydraulic may become available later this year as a German premium. Type 62 is only avaiable on the Chinese server

Isn't the Hydro already available for the RU server? Or did I mishear that from another source?

False. M6A2E1 was only ever a preorder tank. M4A2E4 was the beta gift.

There's also the Pz 38H, same as the other captured French tanks it was removed from the store some time after the French tree went live. But it's not so rare because it's incredibly effective in tier 1-2 matches.

Because Lert here seems to be the rare tank expert, what about the Type 59 Gold?

If you want the M6A2E1, the A32, or the Pzkpfw V/IV, there is a gift shop sale right now selling the tanks along with their gold packages. For example, the normal 100 dollar gold package gives you 100 dollars worth of gold with a free M6A2E1. The 50 dollar gold package goes with the Pz V/IV for free, and so on so forth. It's on the SEA server, if you are willing to spend a few spare bucks.

The WZ111, Type 62, and the Type 59G are Chinese server exclusive, and will not be offered into any of the other servers. They are for promotional purposes only.

It's on the US server, in the russian tech tree. It's called 'IS-3' there.

But the IS-3 doesn't go 50km/h.

Only way to get the WZ-111 is to play on the chinese server and the only way to play on the chinese server is to connect from the chinese mainland.

The WZ111 is not the IS-3. It's a Chinese conversion of the IS-3. It mounts a modified Type 59 turret, with a 122mm D25-TA gun.
