Q:Can we expect a hit point boost in some tanks with the upcoming patch due to the new vehicles being added?

Will Premium Tanks such as the T-34 heavy have special sale events?

Your thinking of the T34 USA premium tank, not the T-34 Russian standard tank

I am quite confused as to why British and/or Japanese tanks haven't quite been introduced into WoT. I know that the Japanese didn't have too many different tanks and that we do already have British-manufactured tanks within the game's current tech trees but I'd still like to see an actual British faction with it's own tech tree that uses it's own tanks. Remember, the British tank battalions DID fight in WW2. They didn't just sit on their hands and wait for us to do all the work. :/

What is a demolition tank?

OOh I know that one.  An engineer's vehicle.  It's not designed to fight battles per se so much a prepare battle areas.  They're generally quite slow, frequently have bulldozer blades or backhoes on the front and mount very short range large caliber derp guns or even mortars for knocking down buildings and creating craters for other fighters to use as cover.  Basically you don't want to drive one in WoT.  The numbers look great but they're really not designed to fight with.  Low speed turrets, no stabilization, horrifically inaccurate slow firing guns.

The really heavy armor is mostly there to protect against shrapnel produced by their own equipment and shell fire.  Ironically this makes them quite tough, and any tank that got within 20 meters of them would probably be in trouble, but they'd never get close enough to another tank to do any damage before dying.

IRL they're incredibly valuable force multipliers.  Those ramped pillboxes you see on town maps would have been built by them.  .

AFAik the merkeva is an order of magnitude too new for a WW2 era game.  The thing is 80's vintage iirc, and it's technically an AFV not a tank.  Personally I;d love to see a modern era version of W0T with things like missle launchers and whatnot, but I suspect they'd have to build a whole new game.

Please explain the logic behind the tier 8 MM placement for the ram II.

I'm willing to accept that one might exist, but for the life of me I cannot figure out what it is.  The tank is too slow to scout, and doesn;t even have the pen to track vehicles in that tier.   You wind up nothing more than a shooting gallery duck.

how come the american, german, and french tanks are getting 'Nerfed' while the soviet tanks remain unchanged? I've been reading this form and have seen alot of complaints about the otherwise amazing vehicals are becoming rubbish because of them getting "Nerfed" or uneccisarily downgraided, meny users in the US server belive that the Game Devs are slated to the Russian server rather then the world comunity as a whole, so consiquently, those in the American servers (espacally new players to the higher teirs or n00bs) cmplain about the russian tanks being OP while other tanks like the T-30 are getting nerfed, so I ask, why do you not just reset the tanks back to their origanal stats and rebalance the tech-trees so that no one tree has a better tank overall, just top level tanks that are specalized?

soviets apparently got nerfed in 7.5  A major gun was removed, and in particular the t28 was changed into something that looks quite painful.  Parity may really be achieved here.  If one tank line has a lee or an amx 40 in it they should all have one.  I hope it wasn't too much actually.  A few of those tanks really needed that big gun.

For further reading you can check out my post in which I get my nether regions chewed off by everyone for voicing a very similar opinion.  some excellent points were made (by others) http://forum.worldof...__fromsearch__1

Technically neither did the Americans.  We really only had 3.  Most of the US tanks in WoT are various minor variants of the sherman (which is why they generally have terrible hull armor)  I suspect these kinds of things take forever to balance and arrange for, and the more tank lines there are the more complicated the process gets.

Will an 88mm cannon be added to the StuG III? I'm not complaining about the L/70 but I would just really really like an 88mm cannon on my StuG.

I was Driving a SU-85 (tier 5 Russian T.D.) using the 122 mm and my commander was saying i was penetrating however still only doing 50 dam to a KV1 (back armor) shouldn't it do a lot more?

Depends.  If he had a spall liner perhaps not.  Spall liners reduce damage from HE rounds.

i know in 7.5 the e-100 and maus are getting a buff but my question is are u going to add the 150mm to the maus because it one 150mm was built for the v2 but wasnt put on yet and the e-100 never has the 150mm will u add the 150mm to maus

also the 150mm fro the maus was very accurate and deady but had about same pen as the e-100s 150mm

plus the maus 150mm is the lenth of the 128mm but with an quarter of it added so the gun was long and accurate please answer u guys never do
