:Smile-hiding:  Is this a rumor or is it going to be the replacer of the Type 59?

Its not going to replace the Type 59. From all that we know...

Its probably going to be a tier 5-6 light tank

Great, the last thing we need is more tier 5-6 lights :P

Wonder what the price point will be?

EDIT: Cool, got -1'd for making a joke, someone mad I guess?  <_<

As I know Type 62 will be introduced as VI tier light tank. Is it possible to have it in higher tier (or excluded from low tier battles)? Such late model in so low tiers will completely ruin already dissapearing WWII feeling. You know, those PZIV's, T-34's or Shermans fighting with 1960's tank... To be honest maybe it would be good to ask EU/NA communities if we want this tank at all. I am sure people here would prefer some European/USA WWII premiums, not Chinese.

Currently we are not planning to introduce it for other servers apart from the Chinese one. We have lots of interesting non-Chinese vehicles to add.

Any Tier5 heavy can be better than a T14.......because they is just so slow to turn and turn turret too.

Its like a beefed up T1 (armour) with the turret (speed) of a wolverine and the gun from a M3 Lee.

hey austin, they're probably not gonna replace the type 59.  If they do, I will probably not play for a while.

You say that because your highest-tier tank is tier 5.  Of course the Type-59 annihilates you; you're 3 tiers below it.

Personally, I don't hate the Type 59, but I do hate the sheer numbers in which it appears as opposed to any other premium tank.

I also think it was a little over reactive for it be removed from the store entirely, but that's not really my place to say.

It sounds like a fun tank. I hope they bring it over.

With 25/50 armor it sure isn't going to be the pubstomper the 59 is.

T-62 is only for the chinese servers.

LONG time ago, Devs say they may get it on the servers Soon™

Not so long ago, however, they said that the Type-62 AND the Type-96 (Is the IS-3 the 96 or the 92?) will remain on the Chinese servers only for "a while..."
