I believe that Wargaming sells existing premiums that are of the same class and nation ahead of introducing a new premium of the same class and nation. 

An example: They sold the FV201 (A45) just before the Caern AX event. 

 

I realize that that this one example doesn’t prove anything by itself, but there’s plenty of other evidence that the LT 432 is coming, and I think the sale of the T-127 just adds overwhelming evidence. 

 

(But maybe I just want a higher tier premium Soviet light....)

I saw the LT-432 in a game last night by some CC. This usually indicates that the imminent arrival of that new tank since they are making review content that will be released by the CCs on the same day.

Of course it's coming soon. The pace of new premiums is dialed up to 11. Why have tech tree tanks at all? They aren't as buffed, they make less credits and XP.- what are they even for in the current game?

 

Of course I'll be buying it.

Yup, almost everything I play now is a premium tank. A large part of that is to try and get my money's worth before the game closes (probably 10 years from now). But either way I've plunked a ton of money into the game and it's time to make sure I get a return. But that isn't the only reason, if you have everything ground to Tier IX that you have any interest in... why play anything but premiums, they train your crew and make more credits.

If ya look at certain streamers like Sahm Lockhart, he tells you after each patch what new tanks have been added to your game files but are not in game yet.

 

The new russian premium light tank, and the russian skorp g was added to the game files last patch.

They are there to give the Free to Play crowd something to do between releases. They provide sheep to be sheared. They also are there so the name Wallet Warrior and Welfare Warrior could be used as insults.

It's going through 2 rounds of testing BEFORE it gets put on common test server.  To test 2 different guns on it.  It's definitely not that tank that will be for sale.

Oh, and given the amount of time since testing.  It's my belief it will be the Russian Scorp G.  SU 1xxxx don't remember the numbers/letters.

Saw an LT-432 today on live server, and if you read between the lines of a streaming announcement here, LT-432 is a tank he will play on stream as soon as the WG "embargo" is lifted.

AND YET, we've had the AwfulPanther in test for what feels like a year now and, instead, we're probably going to get the Mexican RU 251.  I mean, WHY wouldn't I want a crappier version of the RU instead of an actual war era prototype?

 

/sigh :facepalm:

4TankersAndDog, thank you for the acknowledgment!  I love your videos; you've taught me most of what I know about light tank tanking.

I hope to see you on the battlefield!
