So New Zealand isn't a country known for its tank production but it does have 2 tanks that they made and they could be good ideas for a tier 2-3 premium or for another tank line (I doubt it though)

1. Schofield tank

The Schofield, named after its designer, was a New Zealand tank design of the Second World War. Developed in 1940 when it seemed that the Pacific War might reach New Zealand and with little likelihood of weapons coming from Britain, it did not enter service. It was designed to run on either tracks or wheels.

2. Bob Semple tank

Due to the limitations of requirements and resources, the Bob Semple tank was a functional failure. By using a large tractor as a base, and bolting on a hastily designed and poorly constructed tank superstructure, the resultant tanks were inadequately armored, extremely heavy (20–25 ton), unstable, restricted by tractor gearing to slow speeds, and had to stop to change gears. Furthermore, due to the shape of the underlying tractor and undue vibrations, shooting from the tank was both difficult and inevitably inaccurate and it never saw action in the field.

NZ players are already useless enough at this game, don't need to give them their own bad tanks.

Bob Semple is kinda already discussed to death, and i think owing to its limited armaments (Bren Guns only) it might have no place in WoT (except for fun mode, perhaps).

 

Schofield is more promising as low tier premium. Maybe someday as usual free garage slot gift tank.

Bob Semple wouldn't even work as a tier 1, unless they make it completely unhistorical (see recent changes). It could be an April Fools tank, maybe even have its own gamemode. 

 

The Schofield could definitely work as a tier 2 or 3, it'd even be pretty cool if WG added a new vehicle mode (see the Swedish TD's) for the wheel-cum track system.

Those both are really good ideas thanks for the help with this discussion

Well The NZ army had other tanks  like the Mk 3 Stuart, the valentine and the Bulldog tanks

Then The NZ 4th armored brigade had shermans in Italy among various other tanks

 

I know this because my Dad was in the Waikato 1st armored regiment that made up part of the Brigade.

The Bob Semple tank wouldn't even be Tier 0. It's be like, Tier -2.

I'd actually like to see some voice packs for sale. I'd buy an Australian, or New Zealander voiced crew.

A "Fosh & Chops" consumable?  :trollface:

 

Sorry to my NZ Comrades.

 

Seriously though a WW1 Mode could encompass the Bob Semple and Schofield, with the Mark Tanks, and all the Armored Cars for a fun Mode.

(Didn't I read a Whisper somewhere that after the Lanchesters from the 100 years event, that MORE wheeled vehicles might be coming?)

Except both tanks were WW2 period.
Early WW2 but still.

 Its WG we are dealing with. Either they busy with moon base so it low in priority or they realized they have promise more than they could deliver and hope we forget about it.

So basically use existing tanks with new skins? Hush now, don't give WG any ideas for selling more premiums!

...although having a 0-skill BiA crew with a kiwi accent might be kinda funny.

O7 Bro.  :trollface:

 

Sorry, as per my previous Option for the NZ tanks....

 

The Bob Semple and Schofield Tanks "Might" and Only Might just cut it at Tier 1, but if you slot them into a WW1 or post WW1 battle they may actually be ok and fun to play.

All Joking aside, some NEW content would be a welcome change from the HD version of this or that, and a OP Premium here and a re-released Premium there.  The 100 year event was Great for a quick NO Hassel  Blast, and quite good at training British Light Crews Quickly.  Even if was just a Monthly or a Weekend event would be a nice break from the grind and an oportunity to "Experiment" with Wheeled vehicles and Multi Gunning Tanks.
