Our expert photographer MeatheadMilitia has caught a glimpse of something in the wild!!! What do you think it is?


Watch here for more Photos and the developing story:    http://worldoftanks.com/content/monster-watch

 

      

 

 

We sent Meathead back out into the wild and he got us some more pictures! Well...he set up a trail camera that managed to get some new, clearer pictures. Hopefully these can be used to shed some light on the nature of this unidentified object!

 

         

 

 

Our intrepid source has managed to capture video footage of the object emerging from the murky water! This is a rare sighting of the beast in its natural habitat.

 

The M6A2E1 will be in the Premium Shop on April 1, 2017 for 24 hr only! The Mutant will cost $89.99, so make sure to get yours before it returns to the murky depths.

Hmmm... looks like a T1 Cunninghambone in the foreground, so unless there is some CRAZY sealclubbing going down, the monster should be a tier 1 or 2 tank.

I put up my thoughts on the Facebook page you guys have.......that looks like a Mutant 6. I compared the muzzle break seen in another picture you guys put up, and it matches the Mutant's muzzle break.....here's what I posted, by the way, going off of what devs 'experienced and saw' when this mysterious beast was spotted:


 

Has anyone considered that it's a Mutant 6? (M6A2E1) For one thing, Yoott said it hasn't been seen in MANY moons......the Mutant 6 has not been seen in many years, since it was only avaliable to the Beta Testers. Beer said it had a huge head and long teeth, and that the rocks he threw simply bounced right off the beast's armor. The Mutant has a massive turret, an equally long gun, and incredibly strong armor. That's my idea.......and from what I can tell, that muzzle break in the top photo looks A LOT like the Mutant's muzzle break.


 

I then did further investigating, and in other pictures, the rear of the unknown tank matches the rear of the Mutant....along with the gun mantlet and the muzzle break, as I've said before. And every dev has called this thing a monster.....the Mutant 6 is just that. A monster.

UE57 confirmed :P

 

But for reals from looking at the other image they highlighted as well, if looks kinda like a Mutant6.

Mutant M6? 


Here is my evidence

 

Boxy Turret in both of those pictures indicate an M6 Mutant as well as the exceptionally large mantlet. This tank also needs to be pretty tall and have a fairly large front plate both which the m6 does. Gun as well as muzzle brake appears to match as well.

 

 

This is honestly more helpful evidence. This again shows a very tall tank with a rear that almost perfectly matches the mutant m6.

 

Eyewitness accounts

 

"I tried to scare it away by throwing rocks at it, but they just bounced." M6 mutant is known for bouncing just about everything frontally.

 

"Suddenly, a large shape appeared in the distance" Again large tank - m6 mutant

 

"I only glimpsed the object from a distance but I could tell that it was monstrously huge! It towered over the vegetation. Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but I doubt anyone would consider this object to be beautiful." - Again large tank as well calling it ugly something that you would say about a mutant

 

"I heard rumors that this object existed, many moons ago. I didn't believe them. Not until I heard it's ghastly cry for myself. Why...why would it reappear after all these years?" M6 mutant was a beta tank only. Exceedingly rare.

There are a couple of other pictures on their Facebook page... one you can see the muzzlebrake and it looks like the american 105mm gun (well it looks like an american muzzlebrake in general, could be 105mm, 90mm or 76mm), but the other picture doesnt look like a Mutant 6... and I cant really see it in the ones provided here either. 

 

I thought it might be the White Tiger... but the shape is wrong for that too...

Whatever it is you blow up the last pic it looks to have a muzzle brake very similar to the Rheinmetall Skorpion

 

Found a pic online of a M6A2E1-I used to test a 105mm gun. The muzzle brake on it looks big enough to be the one in the last picture

Looks like another Cunningham,  Pointed to the viewer's right about 30 degrees.

 

Edit:  The third pic kills the Cunningham theory.

In the article they asked 'why has it returned after all these years?"  Really old prem coming back?
