quick info from the Insider. Apparently, the T-34/88 tank is coming to Xbox in a bundle with the (earlier announced) Sherman Ripper. The bundle will look like this:
- Soviet tier VI T-34-88 Medium Tank
– 100% Crew
– 38 Pzgr. 39 Shells
– 8 Pzgr. 40 Shells
– 2 Garage Slots
– 30 Days of Premium Account
Meet the newest addition to the Soviet collection, the T-34-88! This Premium medium tank will catch your enemies by surprise as you wreak havok on the battlefield with training up your Soviet Medium crews and earning loads of Silver!
Why on earth is it a Soviet tank, I have no idea (the vehicle conversion – if it indeed happened – was performed by Germans). According to vague Russian “records” presented by Yuri Pasholok (remember, it was that school notebook stuff), this vehicle actually existed, as it was captured and dismantled by Soviets after the war, but who knows. This offer is unfortunately for Xbox only – not sure why, PC WoT could use this tank as well.
What is funnier however is that for some reason, the following bundle description was found in the WoT files – a great “offer” indeed!
-German “Super” Heavy tank Agritraktor I Ausf. A
– 100% Crew
– 100 Pzgr. Rbd Shells
– Garage Slot
– 3 Days of Premium Account
Greet the most “powerful” of German tanks, The Agritraktor! this little beast is a one shot wonder, strike fear on your foes and harvest them at the same time with this one-man powered “tank!”
Agritraktor is exactly what you think it is – a tractor equipped with German 88mm gun (or so it seems). It’s not a real vehicle, it was a test mule, used in very early days of WoT (like, pre-alpha) to test stuff like basic movement, IIRC. Unless this is some very early April 1st joke, it’s probably some trolling.
