- according to SerB and Veider, French tree second heavy branch is ready, but won’t be added now, because “there are other trees to have tanks added to them"

...unless those other trees are the Chinese, and the Chinese again, what exactly's the plan here? France is already the second sparsest tree in the game, do we really need another branch of the big three before something they teased about almost a year and a half ago?

Well, there's the second line of German TD's in 8.9, and the Japanese tech tree either late this year or in the first half of next year, there's additional US light tanks to be added, there's undoubtedly more British tree to be added, and the dance goes on.  Chinese are the least of their worries at the moment, I'd imagine.

Tanks to come?
  • German 2nd Tank Destroyer line (patch 8.9)
  • New Japanese Tree of Tanks  (patch 9.0??)(Ready for December-January holiday periods for release)
  • American 2nd Medium line
  • French 2nd Medium & Heavy lines
  • Soviet 3rd Tank Destroyer Line
  • Multiple Light tank lines up to tier 10 (German, USA, French, British, Soviet), released concurrently with buffs to 'mid-tier' artillery.
  • Chinese Tank Destroyers & Artillery
  • British 2nd Heavy (Chieftain) & Medium lines
All of this is before an European Tree of tanks is even released (Swedish, Czech, Hungarian, Romanian, Yugoslavian, Swiss, Polish et al).  Technically the European Tree needs the Swedish S tank as a tier 10, however to do this means redesigning every map in the whole game first. Why? The S tank hulls-down by digging into the earth... which the game's present engine doesn't allow for.
Estimates:
Seems like the French will see at least one 2nd tank line arrive between patches 9.1 to 9.3  
When is that?
3 to 6 months from now.

Well, considering they've been talking about a second German TD branch even longer?

I'd say so.

- according to SerB, the best cooperation between WG and an archive/museum was with Saumur in France, Bovington is not bad either, but SerB states that since the WG EU office is in Paris, it was easier for geographic reasons

Additionally recall Serb did go on a trip to Paris recently....

They have not. The french 2nd hvy line was actually featured at the end of a video many versions ago, and pictures of it were released. It was at least 1 and 3/4 years ago.

Storm claimed the British Chieftain is a "Heavy" in WoT, and the Chieftain will NOT replace the medium tier 10 FV4202.  Source?  FTR blog, see the link I listed in my previous posting in this thread.

Serb said recently the 2nd French Heavy line is a finished product now.  Source FTR Q&A.

Well, that is actually good news for me, all of 2014 might be long enough for me to actually find and kill a 113 on the opposing so I can get my China Expert badge.  I will probably also be enough time for me to finish researching the rest of the Chinese line for the technical engineer badge.

Same with me, can't find 113 to kill it for  china expert.
Recently just one more shot to finish it but that was bouce and somebody else kill it. And it was really hard to make some dmg when I was in T-44.
