Holiday Ops 2022 Reward Tank: Caliban in Premium Shop
Event Start: May 20, 2022 @ 14:00 UTC+8 Event End: May 30, 2022 @ 14:00 UTC+8

<Post #2868 Caliban Tank Design & Conception>
Didn't get it in large loot boxes during Holiday Ops. Worth buying it now? Probably not. So far gold prices in MYR are stable and have not changed in years. (25,000 Gold = MYR 406.70)

Premium Shop Base price for the Caliban is 9,750 Gold equivalent to MYR 164.45. Nice to get a special offer for 0.02 sen less. shocking.gif

Holiday Ops 2022 Reward Tank: Bofors Tornvagn in Premium Shop
Event Start: May 23, 2022 @ 08:00 UTC+8 Event End: May 31, 2022 @ 14:00 UTC+8

When this tank first came out, it looks somewhat familiar and I was curious about the design and more importantly, does it exist at all even on paper or a mere fabrication by WG? How does the driver located in the front sloped hull enter and exit the tank?
Bofors are renowned for their 120mm naval auto loader guns but no Bofors 120mm caliber guns were ever made for tanks.

The hull and rear stepped deck of the Tornvagn was probably inspired by the Strv 2000 proposal that never passed beyond a wooden mockup. In the end instead of developing their own tank, the Swedes bought Leopard 2A4 that were designated Strv 121 (leased from Germany) and Strv 122 (production).
I couldn't find any info about the Bofors Tornvagn. It could be a real paper design or loosely based on a real design, but most likely it is another WG fake tank. Should anyone buy it? If you can afford WG pixel tanks and it suits your play style, why not? laugh.gif

WG better hope that this does not backfire. One does not want to end up the creek without a paddle.

Meanwhile on WoT RU server... they have a different Season VIII Battle Pass

This is most likely due to the suspension of all sales of Warhammer products into Russia by Games Workshop since March 16th, 2022.

Another entertaining replay commentary from The Mighty Jingles featuring the ELC EVEN 90. A tiny Tier VIII premium light tank with the highest stock stationary and moving camouflage values. In WoT this tank is featured with 3 crews, however IRL the prototypes are operated by only 2 crews.

Five prototypes were made sequentially from 1956 to 1959, where each design of new machine took into account the experience of testing the previous ones. The main problems were associated with balancing the oscillating parts and the distribution of loads. The asymmetrical gun installation also transmitted a recoil impulse, that affected the turret mechanism. Two of the five prototypes are preserved, one at Saumur Tank Museum, the other at a military base; Camp de Carpiagne in Marseille, France.

More on the new Battle Pass Tier IX reward tanks.

Historical information regarding the British School of Tank Technology design and development of Project Cobra.

Sadly, the same cannot be said about the other new reward tank: Lorraine 50T. The only positive thing I can say is that WG didn't try to sell it for 24 tokens. laugh.gif

WZ-114 Marathon tank now in Premium Shop
The Hidden Tiger Challenge marathon event was held on January 28th, 2022. <Post #2897> 4 months and 14 days later, the tank is now in the premium shop. FeelsWeirdMan The Chinese Medium tank 122 TM debuted in the Premium Shop 4 months and 17 days after the Lunar Challenge on February 11th, 2021. For comparison, the Kampfpanzer 07 RH debuted in the Premium Shop exactly 8 months after the Crystal Challenge. Perhaps the Chinese tanks aren't popular? With a base price of 13,400 Gold (MYR 223.41) for a pixel tank, it remains to be seen whether Tier IX premium heavy tanks will sell like hot cakes.

World of Tanks Moves to 64-Bit Operating Systems
Say bye bye to 32-bit Operating Systems. Starting from September 2022 update, WG will gradually discontinue the support of 32-bit operating systems. Not many PCs are running 32-bit OS anyway.
According to PassMark Hardware Survey - OS Marketshare, only 0.4% PCs are using 32-bit OS.

“Who has never tasted what is bitter does not know what is sweet..” - German Proverb
All those patient effort of steadily getting resources, saving them up though thick and thin over the years finally paid off.
Got one with a nice number and best of all didn't spend any gold. The Object 780 has a premium shop base value of 22,800 Gold (MYR 372.87) sweat.gif , however buying this tank outright with gold in this event costs a small fortune of 55,000 Gold. (MYR 894.74) shocking.gif

Object 780 Stock update at around 0740 this morning, down to 904 numbered units left as of this posting.
