Just like the rest of the players, the CCs did not get an early access to Object 780 this time.


When Wargaming made this announcement on June 14th:

Wargaming Expands European Presence by Opening Two New Offices

Victor Kislyi, Wargaming CEO made this statement:
"Warsaw and Belgrade were logical choices for these new locations, both are fast developing technology sectors with enormous potential. We look forward to working closely with both cities’ IT communities to build best-in-class game development and publishing units. Wargaming continues to move forward with big plans for the future. The Belgrade and Warsaw locations will be essential for accomplishing our goals."

Now we can see that one of their plans is to introduce Tier X Premium Tanks within the price range of 22K - 23K Gold and maybe double it up on certain events. laugh.gif

With WG's decision to pull out of the RU region (WG's biggest playerbase), the shortfall of revenue will of course be compensated elsewhere...

I thought I could the usual 20% to 30% discount coupon for an epic win reward.
Together with the rising cost of living in Europe and everywhere else, I foresee less discounts and sales in the future and perhaps more P2W elements like Crew 2.0 will come into play.

The Object Number Designation 780 by GABTU (Main Directorate of Armored Forces) issued in 1971. Main designer Pavel Isakov from Chelyabinsk Tractor Plant (ChTZ).

Cupola and turret shape different from WG's in game model. Less weakspots for Soviet tanks?

user posted image
WG's Object 780 turret shape looks similar to this. Not sure if this is design is authentic from ChTZ or a creative person.

Holiday Ops 2021 Reward Tank: GSOR 1008 in Premium Shop
Last day today 21 June, 2022 (Tuesday) @ 14:00 UTC+8 (06:00 UTC)
So far the price haven't changed since it was offered in Summer Sales July 23rd to July 29th, 2021.

In World of Tanks it is featured with 3 crews (Driver, Gunner and Commander) but the original design specifies that it is operated by two crews only. (Driver and Commander). Liquid fuel armor is a strange but interesting concept.

Get New 3D Styles for the Tiger II and E 75
In the spring of 1945, a specialized pioneer crew in their E 75 received orders to go on a highly classified mission. On their way back, word reached them that Allied troops had crossed into Germany and closed in on Berlin from all directions. They needed to avoid drawing attention to complete their mission, but when a distress call from a Tiger II reached them on the outskirts of the capital, the crew decided to head into the city and intervene...

I like the idea of a video and the story behind the 3D styles but WG can surely make a more creative and interesting video than the above.
For example: The Renegade Challenge: How to Get the M54 video and Tank Gear: King Tiger (Captured) video
Oh wait! These creative visuals and story were made by the team at Minsk. wink.gif

"Panzersturmpionier" 3D Style on E 75 valued at 3,000 Gold (MYR 52.81).

For those who missed the livestream at the Tank Museum in Bovington.


Speaking of Tankfest and The Tank Museum in Bovington, I hope someday that this tank will make it into WoT as a reward tank for bonds. It has that different suspension system for the initial 10 production Jagdtigers than the current ingame Jagdtigers.

Interesting description regarding the "Char de Chastel" 3D style: "The spectacular Char de Chastel 3D style is inspired by the legend of the Beast of Gévaudan." hmm.gif
Although, the story below is good and effort in making it is commendable, frankly I dislike the style.

The Beast of Gevaudan: Hunting the Monster of 18th Century France
user posted image
Statue of Marie-Jeanne Valet vs. the Beast of Gévaudan at Auvers, France by Philippe Kaeppelin erected in 1995.
On August 11th 1765, Marie-Jeanne Valet, a young woman of twenty years old, and her sister were attacked by the beast while crossing a bridge over a stream. Marie-Jeanne managed to fight back, sticking a spear into the beast’s chest.

Got two non stackable coupons a while back but forgot to use it before expiry. Limited selection of tanks and premium account only. 30% off for Premium Account would be is nice if I don't mind prolonging the suffering,

<Post #1379> Updated. Screenshots reuploaded. Rip Tinypic September 9th, 2019. Thankfully I still keep most of the screenshots just in case the image hosting site call it quits. Will update other posts as necessary.
Four years and 11 days after Post #1379, Preferential MM tanks are still here today. grin.gif

Today is the last day before midnight to get the Object 780. Many still unsold, looking for owners... laugh.gif

Not enough resources to get it? Unwilling to get it for gold? Just play regularly, complete Daily Missions; get epic rewards for every 45 daily missions completed and save those resources for the next one.

On the subject of Tiger I, here's a supercut YT video of the The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum's Tiger I restoration released 2 weeks ago.
Although it has been restored from parts that come from many wrecks, it has chassis number 250771, which was built in January, 1944 and was part of the Schwere Panzer Abteilung 502 (502nd Heavy Panzer Battalion) on the Eastern Front.

Notable tank commanders from this panzer battalion:
  • Oberleutnant Otto Carius
  • Hauptmann Johannes Bölter
