NOTE: I want to give credit to Silentstalker who uploaded a post in 2014 covering this topic here: http://ftr.wot-news....never-made-it/ 

Recently I decided to go on a trip down memory lane. I went back and watched the old trailers for World of Tanks but some stuff stuck out to me. I got to the 7.0 Trailer and everything was normal until they secretly announced french tanks at the very end of it (1:36). The tank at the end has never been seen in game for players to play and looks like an AMX 50 B kinda. This tank also makes an appearance in the 7.1 French Tanks Trailer (0:24). This is not the only vehicle like this though. In the 7.4 Trailer at 0:21 we see a French Artillery called the 2C Bis. This was only ever seen for the two seconds of the video but it still caught my eye when I watched it. Turns out there are tons of tanks like this in the game that never made it into the game. The most well known one is the MTLS 1G14. This American Light tank was supposed to be given out along with the BTSV and PZ II J in box sets of the game but it failed to make it into the game. These appearances of vehicles in World of Tanks Youtube content is not a common thing and you need a skilled eye to spot them. Two more cases happen in World of Tanks: ASAP - 8.9 Update. A tank called the T-5 can be seen at 2:36. The T-5 is a Tier 7 Russian medium tank that looks like a captured Panther. At 2:58 there is a NbFz as a tier 3 premium tank. What is interesting is that some of these tanks do eventually make it into the game. The SU85I and SU76I were considered "vaportanks" until they were sold. The T3 HMC tier 2 American TD was considered one until they added it in. Right now the second French HT line are considered Vaportanks so does that mean maybe in the future we will get them? It doesn't mean they are out of the question, clearly Wargaming put lots of work into the vehicles so maybe in the future we will see them but right now they are relics of the past that were almost here. I personally would love to see some of these tanks in the game, as a tech tree not premiums.

MTLS 1G14?, NO

 

Cancer I and the rare sight of Cancer II J is enough machineguns at tier 3.

If I remember correctly on their devblog WG plans to introduce a second French heavy line and they said if all goes well we might see it in the near future but take that with grain of salt as they change their minds more than a politician.

You and me both know they would given how a lot of the most popular tanks right now are superheavies because even braindead players can have a decent match in them...damn tanks are almost idiot proof.
