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.

(posting on 3 G roaming from a local phone on my iPad, so please forgive my quality of post.)

 

Hello's.

The Sentinel was bought by and is owned by Wargaming Asia.

We will be making the tank available to the public, by displaying it at the Australian Armour & Artillery Museum in Cairns.

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

 

No, but there is more surprises coming soon after the Sentinel arrives.

** oh and a few before too.

Surprises might mean a Commonwealth line rather than an Aussie one then?

Best slogan 2015 ;)

I think as long as it's not any more 2j's or B2's the sale should be fun, it would be nice if Type 59 went on sale again, or some of the ever rarer tanks like the Hydrostat, 38H, pz V/IV (I can dream ;~; ) or the frankenstein itself the M6 mutant

I assume it's "man part" will be a weak spot. ;)

The MG is heavily armoured, which is why it looks phallic. Not really a weak point.

inb4 Wot get M rating after sentinel added because containing 'phallic and indecent imagery'.

Back to World of Tanks for now.

The pz v/iv is the worst vehicle i have ever used and ive played just about everything. To pay $ for one now would be really stupid considering what other premium tanks are available.

Its a eunuch tank, no weakspots to be found. But as a consequence its gun isnt very potent either.

It's a collectors item, only reason I'd want it is for a collection, a panther chassis at tier 6 for strongholds is not bad either

If it does turn out to be some ridiculously priced bundle I won't be bothering. I still hold out some hope for researchable Commonwealth sub-branch to make use of the all the option for the Sentinel line. T4 prems don't really do it for me I'm afraid.

Thank you WG and Tan,

 

Couple of questions Tan.

 

Have they revised what the tank actually looks like since that abomination they had in Super Testing?

 

I know this has already been asked but, will it be a researchable tank and not a Premium???

 

I tend to feel, from what you have announced and what you haven't said, that it will be a Premium.

No, there will be no Commonwealth or AUS line.

The tank and customization of the tank is being worked on. So you will need to compare your expectations with the final product a little later.

Premium, for sure. Only sold in the premium shop, due to the customization's it will have with it.

 

I tend to feel, from what you have announced and what you haven't said, that it will be a Premium.

Oh well.  I was hoping for a grindable Sentinel.  Doesn't look like I will be driving one.  Unless they eventually bring out that AC4 that was seen some time ago in a video of a Super Test.  Everyone saw it in that video.
