If they are going to go this route, and it appears they might, I would much rather see REAL skins, rather than Fantasy Island skins that many folks have no clue about. I have NO idea what this current KV-2 skin comes from, but it appears many urchins do. I would like to see more Sherman Thunderbolt or M46 Patton KR (although that skin is pretty fugly) or skins like on the Defender or STG. Skins that actually existed and were put on tanks.

“many urchins do”

I think several idiots missed the sarcasm of the OP...

 

if the OP wasn't being sarcastic...god help us all

 

If he was being sarcastic, he's terrible at it.  And regardless, it really is a good to sell premium versions of tech tree tanks.

 

As I work up a tech tree, I promote my crews to the next tank I research.  That way I have a multi-skill crew for the high level grinds and a very good crew by Tier 10.  Along the way I often find a tank I enjoy, or that's historically significant and (to me) collectible.  I can keep the tank, but developing a new crew is a pain, especially for a tank I don't run that often.   But if I can buy a premium version of that tank, I can stick my experienced crews in it and it's immediately 10% more fun to play, plus the experience gets added to my top crews, whom I use in several different tanks.  It basically makes my crews much more efficient.

 

On top of that is the credit and XP bonus you get for a premium tank.

 

I loved my M4A3E8 and kept a good crew in it.  When the Fury came out I bought it, and re-used that crew for the new Light Tank line, so I didn't have to start a light tank without Sixth Sense.  Good deal all around, and I still get to drive an E8 Sherman (but it makes more money).  Ditto with the Bromwell.

 

Tiger 131 was a real home run for me; not only is it a premium, it's a historically accurate Tiger with the normal 88mm, and it's only Tier 6.  Win-win-win-win-win-win-win.  

 

So yeah, bring on more historical premiums, so I can enjoy driving actual historical vehicles without being penalized in the crew department.

If the T28 Proto could make Premium credits I'd play it a hell of a lot more than I do now. Its one of my favorite TDs to play in the game. I wouldn't want to lose any of it's current stats however. Would just love the extra money it could make.

It comes from Warhammer 40,000.   Their tanks are apparently based on the premise that tank design reached its epitome around 1930, and everything after that was an evolutionary dead end.   All the tanks (and other miniatures, for that matter) are in a cartoonish style, bristling with oversized guns and with a retro Steampunk-ish appearance.  The Ragnarok KV-2 is actually quite mild compared to their other stuff:

What would be nice (and probably generate more $$$$ For WG) is if we could flag an elite tank as a premium for a fee. There would be less time and money having to spend modeling tanks. Say you really like the Chaffee and you have it elited, pay WG a fee (based on tier level) and BAM, the tank is now premium.

In Blitz, you can convert tanks "almost Premium".

I was not being sarcastic. This guy gets it ^^. It's a way for WG to make money without having to sell powercreep and it's a way for me to play some of my favorite tanks again without having to start a new crew. I don't care if they have skins or not, I would buy either way

Thing is ... barring the expense of course, who wouldn't want a premium tech tree tank?  Even if the stats were exactly the same ... the premium benefits would make it a superior choice if considering a 'keeper' Imagine the exp and credit compounding by using the same crew for a range of tanks ... for those 2x/3x/5x times?

If it is a trend that people buy with real money tanks, albeit with a special skin, that you can get anyway in the tech tree, so be it. Let WG cash in on stupidity. It's actually good for all of us.

and that makes it a terrific way for WG to make money without unbalancing the game any further

I’d like to see a premium Hetzer in some capacity. If they decide to do more 40k tanks, there are certainly plenty of different Astra Militarum regiments for them to choose from. I should hope that any additional 40k vehicle releases will have premium vehicle functionability, even if that’s just an effect turned on by a premium camo scheme applied to a regular vehicle.

That $10 skin for a tier V would make sense if it made the tank a Premium. Maybe $15 for a tier VI. $22.50 for tier VII, $30 for tier VIII.
