Just what the title says, I think it would work wonders for purchases if we could have the opportunity to hop in a premium tank and take it for a test run, shooting at some AI targets and getting to see if we'd like it or not. I've held off on buying numerous tanks because I wasn't sure if I would enjoy it or not, so I'm sure there are others in the community who have felt the same way.

Warthunder does this and I think its a great idea. Not only prem tanks but tech tree ones too. Although you can always get on the test server when its up.

We get tons of new rentals each month, especially through the Twitch Prime stuff, which I believe releases 4 rental tanks a month.

I get rentals with Amazon Prime/Twittch thing WG does.

For me they are always for premiums that I already have.  Good for those who dont have those tanks.

I would like rental tanks within 2-3 tiers of what you own, find out if you like it before grinding for it.

You can't try out new premiums on the test server though (Which we should be able to, so we'd have avoided abominations like the Skorpion G).

Its not in the best interest of WG to let you try Premium Tanks before selling them...

Testing tanks should be a thing.  Just not in a Random battle like the traditional rental.  
 

A "test map" similar to how WT does it would be perfect (and would also allow for tutorials in some capacity.  I have never seen the WG Tutorial for myself). 
Have an open field, a small town, hills, everything and a series of set up tanks of whatever nation for you to shoot at.   
 

An example of the tank your testing sits in the corner by itself to let you shoot at it.  

Simple.

When I was starting out, I did receive a few rentals (where they came from I don't know). They weren't anything too phenomenal and did not pique my interest in buying one. When you complete the bootcamp you get a set of missions and at the end you get a T34-85M for 10 days.
