This looks really cool! looking forward to purchasing it, provided it has the two howitzer cannons. :)

I just hope that the prices are not too high when this gets added to the shop (been in the game files since 9.12 or 9.13).

Stats from tanks.gg 9.14 testdata for those interested:

1,224.22 DPM

45/45/60 Damage

88/121/25 pen (AP pen has been 'bumped' from the usual 2-pdr X like the KV-220-2's gun stats)

2.59 aimtime

0.35 dispersion

0.22 movement
0.22 tank traverse
0.08 turret traverse
4 firing
792/990 velocity
 
11.92 hp/t
60 kp/h top speed (which it will never reach)
1.05 hard
1.15 medium
2.11 soft
40 tank traverse
45.89 turret traverse
-10 Depression
+20 elevation
 
370 HP
65/45/45 hull armour
65/55/65 turret armour
350 viewrange
 
Currently set at 1200 gold price tag.  No pref MM I assume.  I don't know why the gun handling and DPM is so awful, totally kills it IMO.  For reference that's drastically worse than a completely stock Valentine (the Brit tree one), Covenantor or Matilda.  With the 64 pen 2-pdr this could have been a great tier 3, but at tier 4 I'd rate it Do Not Want/10 unless it gets pref MM.

Cool to see any addition to the Brit premiums.  At tier 4 it seems very meh, though.  Kinda like most tier 4 prems.

There is one at Camp Mabry (http://texasmilitaryforcesmuseum.org/) in Austin, TX.  

edit: So we started looking closely at pictures and this WAS the one at Camp Mabry.  Did they move this to CA?

Unless they put in the 2 pdr XB gun, there's no point in buying a Sentinel. It has less pen than a Matilda, less armor, and its only saving grace is more speed.  Why does Wargaming think players will pay money for tanks that are markedly inferior to the non premium tanks of that tier?

Very cool another addition to the tank museam

in cairns were I'm from, may have to get another 

yearly pass:) if anyone comes to cairns australia 

to see the Great Barrier Reef or rainforest make

sure you check the tank museam out.  It has the

Largest collection of tanks and artillary in the southern 

hemisphere.  The owner is very passionate and has 

held nothing back.  There even currently restoring/building

a Tiger Tank

Go visit in a fortnight because the Chieftain said he had a special event in Aust then and he might do another tank film. I assume it might be related to the Sentinel unvailing  and release.
