Q&A taken from EU Q&A topic.

Q&A of the Week
Q: Actually about IS-4, I think it stinks... I smell odour of a weakest Tier X. How are you going to prevent it from being repeatedly raped by its paper front?
A: Will add him 100mm of front armour of course.

NOTE: The Newsletter Team's sarcasm detector has ran out of batteries, up to you to find out if it's sarcasm or not (protip - it might be).

This relative alliance included 6 modifications of armored vehicles. The first from this clan, regardless its position in this range, entered the battle after the second, which nevertheless was numbered "1". There was no number "5" at all, numbers "2" and "6" contrasted each other but prefered fizzy drinks. Number "6" hardly left its motherland and was mostly used for training newcomers, whereas number "2" braced its destiny with the sea and armies of other countries, and due to that saw action in battles from the polar ice to equator. If you know what we are talking about, then you will easily answer the following question: what was the general name of this family?

The font is Eras Bold ITC, about the gradient if you mean the main tittle it a concrete texture layer overlay above the text, other smaller banner is just use gradient overlay.

I was going to say that I just had a couple of lucky weeks. However, after spending the last 3 nights hitting the refresh button looking for this weeks question. I'm going to have to say it was due to my OCD. :)
