Recently WG announced a policy change. Now, you can get one premium tank returned to your account if you sold it. Here's how to do it.

1.  File a ticket through the WG support page. (Upper right, looks like a hammer/gear)
2.  Select in game goods.
3.  Tell WG you sold a tank and would like it back.
4.  Include a picture proving you have enough credits to cover the sale price (200 credits * the gold price of the tank, same as the sale price) AND an open slot.
5.  Include a picture proving you owned the tank (ie, show it in your games played)
6.  Clearly state you are willing to pay the credit expense and such.
7.  If you don't do 3-6, they will make you do it in a response post, which means that much longer of a delay before they get to it.
8.  The wait is usually about a day.
9.  ???
10.  PROFIT

Note:

1.  This applies to any premium, including preorder tanks, gift tanks, premiums no longer sold, or regular premiums.
2.  This can be used once per account, and never again.
3.  Thank Jewel_thief and the WGNA people -- this was against policy until they requested a change a few months ago!

Please see the Knowledge Base article, for full and complete instructions.
Here's a quick list of
credit costs for popular tanks. (Thanks DSZeus!)
Please also see this
handy-dandy FAQ that 1stTanks took the trouble of drafting up for you all. :)

Happy tanking, everyone!

be easier to just build a time machine, go back in time, and not sell the tank

Thank you Garbs for leading the charge on this issue.

Mutant 6, as bad as it is, will be coming back to my garage.

I think it's worth noting that they will only do this once per player, and only one tank.  It's a step in the right direction, and much appreciated.

Click on your stats and show the tank in your list of tanks played.

This one time perk is a great one.....

I will get my T34 back! Not a rage sale - Just a one beer too many when I sold my T30 to get my T110E4.


OH and Thank You Wargaming for making this change.

Yay, another feature to coddle the masses lacking forethought or impulse control.  Wooo!   :sceptic:

Not really - The "wait you can buy FCM with credits???" guy obviously did not read the OP. Saw a pic and chimed right in! Oh look at the pretty pretties... Also known as a the chasing butterflies syndrome.
