Is this tank going to be offered in the Chinese tank line?

As is it seems to me to be over modeled. It is difficult to hurt and it's way better than any other medium tank.

ALSO, please don't start the useless type 59 flame war

Devs have expressed disinterest in bringing the Type 59 back to the Gift Shop recently

It's a Premium Tank. It will not be in the Chinese Tech Tree

it will be part of the Chinese line but it is a tier 9 medium while the current version is tier 8.

Thier tier 9 will be the Type 59 Wz120 which will be a Type armed with a larger cannon it will have is drawbacks and strengths from the original. The devs have announced that the tier 9 and 10 mediums will be supporting guns similar the is4s.

I found a statement from New Years day. Can't find Silentstalkers original post this guy quotes, but it's also in SilentStalker's original post archive(his first post, 2nd spoiler tag)

- Q: "Can you confirm that the Type 59 will never be available for sale again?"
A: "I can confirm that in the next patch (unless something unforeseen happens, Type 59 will be a part of the Chinese branch" and "About the premium one, I said many times - we won't promise anything, but we don't plan to return it to the store, as this tank doesn't fit the role of a premium tank well"

This is great news! I'm tired of all the players who don't have it complaining that they either want it or that it is too OP!

Another problem with bringing the type back to the store is it becomes way to over populated when it went on sale a while back i played one match 13v13 full types bouncyest match ive ever played.

If they never bring it back, I will laugh all the harder because I have one and it rocks.

No, it's actually not.
