No, but I think Anti Aircraft vehicles could work for tiers 2-5.

Why not just add armoured cars and halftracks while they are at it. Convoy mode was fun, I don't see why they could not make it work.

I'd love to see some tankettes added. Most tankettes had a version or at least a test prototype that was fitted with 20mm, 37mm and even some 40mm and 47mm.
And even armor piercing .30 caliber can penetrate around 12mm.
So in the lower tiers the machine guns may border on nearly useless but the upgrade guns should prove plenty useful. And .50 caliber and other heavy machine guns are decent in the very low tiers.
Anyway, personally, I love the old clunky tanks so tankettes are cool to me.

depending on how much they want to strech the time line, they can go up to t7/8.

 

zu-57-2 (1948) had twin 57mm, asuming they give it apcr as standar thats around 180mm pen wich should be enought to pen  higher tanks sides

 

YaG-10 76mm motorized anti-aircraft (was a half track truck)

 

otomatic was a palmaria chasis (1970 design) with an oto melara 76mm (1960 design)

 

its one funny looking tank
