I was watching a video review of the Grille SPG and the reviewer said that there was only one premium SPG in the game. Which surprised me. So I went online to Tankopedia and actually found two premium SPGs in the game. The French 105 leFH18B2 (which in real life was a German SPG) and the British Sexton.

 

So here is a short list of premium SPGs that I think WOT could put into the game. The Italian and Japanese SPGs would be a one-of-a-kind since WOT will never make a SPG line for these nations. Therefore these are probably the only Italian and Japanese SPGs that would ever be in WOT. So I think that you can put any tank crew class into these tanks without penalty just to make the tanks usable.

 

FRANCE

GPF 194 50 built and used from 1919 to 1940; main gun is the 194mm L/42.2 field gun; max speed is 10 kph (the speed needs to be buffed though)

 

GERMANY

10.5cm leFH 18 auf Gw 39H(f) 48 converted from ex-French H39 light tanks and used from 1942 onward; 105mm leFH 18 howitzer; max speed is 37 kph

15cm sFH 13 auf Gw Lrs(f) 94 converted from ex-French Lorraine artillery tractors and used from 1942 onward; 150mm sFH 13 heavy howitzer; max speed is 34 kph

sIG 33 48 built from the chassis of the PzKpfw III B, E and F/8 models and used from 1941 onward; 150mm sIG 33 infantry gun; max speed is 40 kph

 

ITALY

Semovente da 1490/40 prototype that was built and tested; 149mm L/40 heavy field gun; max speed is 35 kph

 

JAPAN

Type 4 Ho-Ro 12 built and used from 1943 onward; 150mm L/12 heavy howitzer; max speed is 38 kph

 

I would buy the Italian Semovente because I like Italian tanks. The others sound very interesting to me so I might buy those as well.

 

Please vote which one that you like the best. Thanks!

WG says arty is fine for the game but then won't make premium arty available.

this has always been odd to me but I guess for a class that goes through so many overhauls they don't want to risk putting in more tanks they can't touch

Isn't the sIG 33 the Bison we have already?

The Bison in the game is based on the PzKpfw I chassis. The sIG 33 is based on the PzKpfw III chassis and came in three flavors:
* sIG 33 Ausf. B -> 24 built

* sIG 33 Ausf E -> 12 built

* sIG 33 Ausf F/8 -> 12 built

I see the lack of premium SPG's as evidence that Wargaming still considers removing them.

A Russian and an American premium SPG are needed. Okay, maybe the 105mm leFH 18 auf GW 39(H)f.

 

Let’s wait until wait until the IJA and Italian SPG line materializes, first,

I'd suggest an opposite move: make an assault gun premium version of the M7 Priest. It wouldn't function as arty at all. It would get tank sights and AP/Heat rounds. Buff the damage and pen and HP and make it T6.

The Ho-Ro was used for direct fire.  NO to japanese artillery.  YES to japanese tank destroyers.

Yes, but make the little icon above it still a square so people drive up thinking it's an arty and get blasted instead.  Buahahahaha

Those lines will need to be "materialized" in the same way Chinese tank destroyers were.

They need at least 2 premium (low tier & High tier) SPG's for each nation.

They wouldn't be detriments , they'd be great assets.

Yes and the cancer is all the poor sports and nerfers. Also you don't appear to have any problem with playing SPG's and their should be premium SPG's (1 low tier and 1 high tier) for all tech trees.

This is an important observation in that it highlights an odd discrepancy that seems contradictory at first ... but can be made sense of in the following context -

 

WG has officially made and continues to endorse the class that it has made for the game (Artillery) ... they continue to honor those who have adopted the class and play/pay for the priveledge ... that said, given the difficulty in balancing and ongoing player friction ... WG is reluctant to ADD additional premium artillery SPGs into the game ... particularly since a premium anything has its own problems in terms of retraction/revision or modification.
