This is the main menu where you can choose a historical battle, vehicle and look over your tank before you start the battle. In version 9.0 you will be able to choose between three historical battles:

Germany – Stug III, Tiger II, Panther, Pz IV, Jagdtiger, Jagdpanther
Battle of Kursk
USSR – SU-152, KV-1S, SU-85, T-34, T-70, SU-76,
Germany – Ferdinand, Pz IV, Panther, Tiger I, StuG III, Pz II, Pz III
USA – M10 Wolverine, M18 Hellcat, M36 Jackson, M4A3E8 Sherman, M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo
Germany – Jagdpanther, Pz IV, Panther, Tiger I, StuG III, Tiger II
What this means is, the ability to never play El Halluf again for example, dont like certain maps, play historical mode and choose the ones you want. A feature which has dogged WoT and lowered profits since the start. Ive always wanted to be able to play the maps I enjoy when I want to play them, a real lobby style pick your match and it starts when full option.
They couldnt do it at the start with limited players, it should just be expected to be put in.. and now it is, for historical mode.
When this comes out Ill probably never play normal again.
