I can't wait until they announce how you are going to have to get these. Maybe they will be special rewards for researching a tech tree completely?

My best hope is that its a reward-unlock that would technically be accessible to everyone. If they're only going to be available as prizes for tournaments and what not I'd be gravely disappointed.

Maybe something like "Play 1000 battles with tier X German vehicles unlocks the FaiLowe" or "Win 200 matches in Clan Wars while using a German vehicle will unlock the FaiLowe" or something along those lines. Something that anyone could theoretically get.. eventually.

Soviet Tank will be given for taking Gorky Manufacturing Sector or Chelabynsk Sector
German tank will be given for taking Brandenburg or Reinland-Pflasem
Amerian will be given for taking Detroit.

I hope not.

Seriously I see players with 45% Win Rate and 600 eff driving T10's. They do not deserve a free T10 IMHO.

They should be giving to those players who have atleast 3 T10 in the same tree. ie: 3 T10 American or 2 T10 + 1 T8 Arty.

I think it would actually be cool if it's implemented this way even if I'm not gonna be doing tourney or clan war. Should make pubbers go "Look, the legendary M60!" and such.

But I'm not really the covetous type  :teethhappy:

Source? Or is this just speculation? Because I would love to have that M60 day one. :)

Also of note. Appearance of these tanks will not affect your Nation "expert" title.

Premium and special tanks don't count towards expert badges anyway.

Off Russian forum quoting developers.

There is no plan to implement. As it stands right now its one of many strategies they're playing with to get more people invovled. What makes this a better possibility than some is that tanks are already "made" and "tested" as originally they wanted to add them to tech trees.

Let me guess hit the M60 in the light and win a prize.

I really hope they're not tied to clan wars or tank companies or platooning in any way or I have no chance of ever getting them

Personally i think its one of those ideas that being kicked around and never implemented. There will be too much complaining and its too much work to entire new vehicles to a server so only "15" people can play them...
