They never list everything in these Previews any more - they like to hold back some surprises.

Betcha the mystery rare tank is the Type 59 - it's a medium!

I feel like they should have addressed how exactly we are going to do the mastery for the SU-122-54 this month. That seems like a big detail they left out.

Rare tank is one of a few choices:

 

Type 59

M4A2E4

Chieftain/T95

Grosstraktor

Pz V/IV

Pz IV Hydro

or the

Strv m42/57

 

None of these have been sold in a while, if at all. Regarding the SU-122-54, it's probably going to be a surprise sale like the E 25 was.

Quite an interesting topic about selling a rare medium tank. Well, I have a few possibilities to be honest.
I don't think it would be a high tier tank because those are being sold holy-cow quick sometimes.

After just reading the names of the tanks, it seems like I've come up with the following tanks: AC1 Sentinel, Ram II, Pz.Kpfw. V/IV
And here are my reasons why (Keep in mind that I don't have these tanks):
- AC1 Sentinel: A tank like this does have it's fare share of battles, and rarely used possibly because of the gun or matchmaking since it can see tier 6 games. The fast reload time is something people would like to see on something like this.

- Ram II: My answer is similar to the AC1 Sentinel. It's got a high rate of fire, but this thing can see up to tier 6 games due to it's current preferential matchmaking feature. It can pummel the enemy like a Churchill III can, but the Ram II is more of the Medium Tank version of a Churchill III (Sounds a little off, I know.)

- Pz.Kpfw. V/IV: Oh boy, here we go with this one... :P This thing I barely see in battles anymore, but this thing is what I consider a "partial-hybrid" between a Panther and a Panzer IV H. The gun is something from the Panzer IV H with has decent stats on based on penetration, damage, and reload time which fits it well. The hull is a Panther's hull, kinda genius because of it's angled front which some players may have a hard time penetrating.

 

That's all I can currently guess about what tank could be sold during the 96-hour sale. Most of the premium medium tanks are tier 5 - 10, so I tried to keep it lower than tier 6, and put what I thought would work best.

They have already made this mistake with several tanks that have been removed from the tech tree. It's just WG being lazy. There will be no special way to acquire the tank.

Really wanted to see the Caern AX marathon.....maybe that's the special tank and they are holding back the marathon announcement? Probably not, but one may dream...at least until September 21.

Never mind, that's not a medium tank.

Chieftain/T95 is a tier 8 CW reward tank. It's never been sold.

Thx wargaming for the preview. However since when did IS-2M became a tier VIII? BTW I hope there will be a 50% crew respecialization discount in Sep. Got a few radio operators idling in barracks for over a year.

Mystery tank is going to be the Italian T8 med Progretto. They said they would sell it eventually after the event for it.

1: Tank mastery, the only tank i've got in that list is the Cent Mk1 so guess i'll ace that haha

2: Going in style, "Something sporty this way comes — stay tuned!" Hmm, could be a tank, but sounds like a style will be for sale?

3: IS-2M I just want to point out the typo Tier VIII heavy but it's actually a Tier 7, and thank goodness too since i might even be able to afford it! (Plz make it ~$26 thx)

4: Month long sale, I, don't even know what to say about this one..........you told us the T-34-3 and FCM 50T wouldn't be sold anymore, and that the last sale was the "last chance to get this tank" annnnnnd now they're for sale again? lol.

5: Top secret missions, Sept 17-25 "Six missions based on one of the most ambitious and tragic operations of World War II" this one interests me, Caernarvon action X marathon missions maybe? hmm..

6: Sept 21-24 "rare medium tank" +1 to Pz IV Hydrostat as my guess.

7: Weekend events, Oh thank goodness we're getting X3 weekends again! i was getting tired of the X2 crew xp, phew.

8: On-tracks, I'm looking forward to the Obj 277 one to get the T-10 on discount :) almost have enough XP to research it with my IS-3, oh and don't the on track tier 8-10 tanks get a mission for Crew xp bonus? that could be useful for training some skills.

If you mean the Panzer Hydro its tier 5 not 6. But there is a chance it might be that or something else.

From the looks of it we're getting Edited when it comes to the marathon so no action X for us.
