aye what about the russians and unreleased brits, its pretty simple really its all about balance, they need to balance the amount of premium tanks on the market, new tanks coming out, and tanks already released, if a tank is left out too long in the shop two things will happen first is matchmaker will become flodded with one tank, second sales will fall from people not interested in the tank. they also need to keep a steady supply of tanks ready to be released, so when they phase a tank out a new on can fill its place.

dont worry once the super pershing has run its course either the germans or russians will be next to get a new medium

also @echo_sniper it is a constructive thread, hes bring light to something people may not have thought of before, his reason for doing it may not be constructive, more whining then anything, but the question does have its points.

its alot better then many of the things I have read on this forum

Likely the Russians *inb4RussianBias* because they actually could have tier 8 material to work with, the German tree is already padded enough with paper panzers

The Indien Panzer could have worked, but that's in the tree now.....Maybe Priory of Sion has an idea....

actually the Germans were the first to have a premium with a lowe, so there goes your theory

We're talking about tier 8 medium tanks

with your russian bias theory that should work with everything, considering your theory has to be based off past events, and past events show that germans came first then the russians

I was not invoking the "Russian Bias" theory, I was referencing the idiot tinfoil cap people who will call it when the Russians get a premium tier 8 med first

All I wish is that the Lowe had two loaders. Would make it a lot more useful in training up Tier X heavy crews.

Ugh... Every nation will have had at least two tier VIIIs of some kind.  Germans Lowe and JagdTiger, USA T34 and M26 SP, and USSR IS-6 and KV-5.  No they may not all get the same types and the KV-5 is going away so more people might buy the IS-6, but the Germans don't also get a Medium when the other nations don't have TDs.

Would be really helpful if you make a suggestion to actually give an example...

There's not many medium tanks to choose from but an idea came to me.

7.5 will bring the first British tank to "introduce" the tree to the system. Now we won't see it, but RU Supertesters can. We'll probably see it in the following update, but the premise is set. WG has done this before... introductory tanks to the system.

So, if you want a tier 8 medium premium, here it is... the Flakpanzer E-50. This tank sports twin 5.5cm high velocity cannons. If you've followed my threads about tank suggestions, clan wars inter-title integration, etc, you'll quickly realize the value of this tank. It can fire both on the vertical and horizontal. It's deficiency aside from sheer alpha damage is the lack of negative gun traverse, or very little of it. Being of a high velocity, it will have great penetration, but low alpha damage. Furthermore, since it is of a larger caliber than the current flak cannons in the game (20mm, 50 cal, etc) it won't have this autocannon rapid fire ability, but a decent RoF since it has two main guns (I imagine a RoF similar to a Panzer III with the 50mm main gun, but where 1 gun fires the first shot, the 2nd gun fires the second shot (alternating volley) or it fires both simultaneously.

For now, AP and HE would be the standard rounds, however if they ever do integrate planes and tanks on the same battlefield, airburst will be a viable option for later use. If the concept takes off, they can release an entire "Flakpanzer" tree, and subsequent AA-tank trees for other countries.

So in short :

Good pen, low alpha. Good mobility, decent armor, at the cost of maybe lowered armor on the turret compared to a regular E-50. Lower HP pool as well to keep it fair. You tiered down a JagdTiger for a premium, you can pull the same trick on the E-50.

Use the JT88.   Yes you can use any premium to train any tank crew.  How the hell do you think i trained my American TD crews. Used my T14.

Cheaper and easier answer.  Churchill or if you only want to shell out a couple of bucks, T127 LT.
