as far as I know the tanks that you can get in frontline are reward tanks - ie playing it nets you extra XP but not extra silver. But for example the STA-2 is also available in the normal techtree - and if purchased there it is obviously a premium tank (which gets you also extra silver).

So are there two versions of the STA-2? Or do you get the regular, premium STA-2 by frontline? Just asking 'cause those reward tanks do appeal little to me...

All the tanks but the ae1 phase one are premium tanks.  Pretty sure the emil 1957 is as well, but that may be a reward tank.

I can only add this....
I have a premium STA-2.   I got it by purchasing with a credit card after getting it as a free rental, much like the American Heavy T26E5.   I have had it since 2017.   As far as I can tell it is the same premium offered as a reward for Front-line.

There's only one version of the STA-1; it's a normal premium tank.

If you already have the sta-1 and select the sta-1 from frontline, do you get gold? Or is that a thing of the past now?

I got the Sta-'2' in FL. It is the same tank as can be purchased. It has both 50% for xp and credits, same as any other premium I believe.

 

It has decent gun depression similar to other -10 degree tanks, but its elevation is HORRID at +13 degrees.

Let me clear some mud up from people that don't know what they are talking about.

 

1) The STA-1 is a tech tree tank.

2) The STA-2 is a premium tank.

3) The STA-2 from frontline mode is the same STA-2 from the tech tree, therefore it does earn increased credits.

4) Yes the Emil 1951 also earns increased credits.

5) If you own the STA-2 already, the game will not allow you to choose it as a reward. I already had both the first and second frontline tanks, so I had to take the final two as my prize.

ok, thanks to all for the clear answers...hope WG keeps the concept to give out real premium tanks (not award tanks) also the next season of Frontline :)

STA-2 isnt a bad tank after the buffs. I am still holding my points to exchange for bonds.
