Dear Players.

 

We’re very excited to announce that the Australian Cruiser tank Mark 1 (AC1), also known as the “Sentinel”, will be added to World of Tanks and World of Tanks Blitz later in December.  

This is the very first time an Australian tank will be introduced to the game and it is a homage to the strong support that our Australian community has shown us all these years. 

 

Additionally, Wargaming has recently recovered an actual Australian Sentinel tank and is currently transporting the tank from Austin, Texas to Cairns.

This tank will be on display at the Cairns Museum so stay tuned for more updates on that exciting project.

I like that WG is doing something for the Aussies, even if it's something like getting one of our tanks in the game.

It was a SD model recently, yes...
I'm not sure of the Dev schedule for turning it into HD. So not sure if that will be before or after its release.

 

The finer info will be more available a little closer to December.

I was heard that this will become British tier 4 premium medium tank, is that right? If it is, they should turn it to HD model, and when its out i'll certainly buy it at the 1st day :)

Tanitha, thank you for this update.

You know that we have been waiting patiently(sort of) for a very long time.

i am extremely happy that WG will now see fit to add this tank to the game.

Btw, how involved are WG in helping the Cairns collection in securing this Sentinal?

I would love to know if WG HQ had any input, monetarily or otherwise, in this.

Cool! And there I was, thinking of getting a cheese fridge CDC for myself for Christmas.

I thought it was just a dream to ask for this back in 2011 (NA).

I to will be taking my place in line with the others to get this tank.

Thanks for the update Tan.

Sweet, now the thread in AU/NZ begging for his tank can finally die. I'm certainly looking forward to this tank. I have one request for it though, make it come with a 100% crew with the most cliché Australian names you can think of.

I'm guessing a LOT of players will be face-hugging enemy vehicles in this tank. :P

 

Great to see an Australian tank implemented into the game. Will this have Australian crew, or just UK crew?

Face hugging - YEAH! 

 

British crew, they won't be creating a whole new country's tech tree/crew just for one tank.

Will there actually be an Australian branch at some time in the future?
