The m41 was a very good tank and could possibly be good for a T8 premium. Im not sure when it was produced but it might be a little to modern compared to some of the other tanks but im not sure. But it would be a good tank to add.

I, too, have brought up the idea of using the M41 as a ~tier VI american light. Support seemed pretty universal. Who knows, we may very well see it in a upcoming update  :Smile_great:

Don't worry, it will be in-game as a tier 7(tier 7 is speculation based on historical performance). Not anytime soon however.
It has been confirmed in RU Q&As back in October.

i look forward to it, but im a little suprised because the m41 WB was built 1961. seems like a little too late produced for world of tanks.

Agree, but the final version of the M24 Chaffee has that slot right now.

There would not be a significant difference between the two.

and i think there should be tier 10 premiums of modern era tanks like the t72, abrams, bradley, etc.

Started production in 1953, where in the hell did you get 1961 from?
Also time isn't a factor in WoT only the ability of the tank.

I think this is a very idea because first, they are way out of the time period (Wot is 1930's to 1950's). Second, their features would just completely outmatch any other tank (composite armor, IR sights, and others). Lastly, adding a T10 premium will just allow rich noobs to buy a top tank and ruin the game for everybody else who worked hard for a real T10. I think T8 is the max tier for premiums.

T8 Premium?!!

WTF? NO!!

Tier 6 or 7 standard tank.

Tanks in game are not limited on time. They are limited on what guns they use.

Also where do you get 1961 from?

They started production in 1951.

WOT is not limited by time. They have 1970's tanks in game.

It's limited by guns. The M1 Abrams would be an eligible tank if it is an early model using the M68 105mm gun (which is already in game).

As for some of the other "Modern Tanks" I do not know about those.

I agree. They should not add T10 premiums.

It is a simple addon, as it is the real life replacement for the Chaffee.   Simply add it after the Chaffee as a Tier 6.

It is within the timeframe of WoT, as it was used in the Korean conflict.

The M41 Walker Bulldog saw limited action in the Korean War. In fact it was mainly used during the Vietnam war.

against t54's, which are already in game. It works... In case you didn't see this in the other thread

http://ftr-wot.blogs...k-branches.html

Chaffee will get bumped up to tier 6, m41 at tier 7, and we'll probably get a mystery invent-a-tank for tier 8

I think you should scroll down from this forum to DJ18's forum about this same topic. what would go in the Chaffee's spot because the Chaffee replaced the M3/M5 Stuart which wargaming just split them to tier 3 and tier 4 tanks. The tank has a prototype T37 which looks like an advance Chaffee and the chaffe was officailly replaced in 1953. and the Bulldog can't be a prem tank because all light tanks ether end at tier 8, 7 or 5. depending on the nation.

I posted the same link over there too but it doesn't seem to be working...

http://ftr-wot.blogs...k-branches.html

I'll try that again... In case it doesn't work it says:

Regarding the new light tank branches
Source: http://world-of-kwg....com/146522.html
A player on the developer's blog argues that the best solution how to deal with the blind light tank branches would be to raise the current tier 5 light tanks to tier 6, because they are balanced as T6 vehicles anyway, to put something new at tier 5 and to finish the branch with two more vehicles (the Aufklärungspanther T7 and RU251 T8 for Germans, Walker Bulldog for Americans, "something" for the Russians etc.) - the moneymaking potential would be the same as with the French and Chinese T6 light vehicles in this case.
Developer Makarovslava states to this: "Basically, this is what we are planning, but the T-50-2 will most likely not stay in the new line, there is an "armored moped" needed between the T-50 and MT-25"

So they're probably gonna do it this way. They like to stick prototype vehicles in before the real ones when they need to so I wouldn't be surprised if the prototype chaffe (t24) became the new tier 5

This has been asked over and over and over. Could you please use the search function. also, for future reference, they have also asked for the sheridan, as well as other that im sure you are going to want to make new posts about.
