From my understanding the StuG IV, the T28 HTC, T-55A, and Obj 260 were always referred to as reward tanks, similar to the tier X CW reward tanks, in that while they could allow you to train crew on them they didn't have that bonus credits & experience earnings from something like a tier 8 premium tank.

 

But now with the 2nd Front Missions coming soon, they seem to keep referring to these as premium tanks.

Can someone clarify this for me?

Yea I've seen screenshots of the t55a supposedly having premium credit making ability. Probably a bug though , i can't see WG making prems above t8 like they do in WoWS, because that would inflate the credits substantially like there?

Obj 260 Get! 298/300 done with honors!  75/75 obj 260 missions done,73 with honours! :^)

Would that be such a bad thing though? IMO the reward tanks from the 1st Personal Missions wouldn't be too broken if they had similar credit earning to premium tanks since they're fairly mediocre (StuG IV, T28 HTC) and average at best (T-55A, Obj 260). 

 

I wasn't aware of how bad it was, are the Missouri and Musashi that disruptive to the WoWs economy?

The Missouri is only disruptive to those of us who don’t have one, and have to put up with screenshots of all the money they make.

The reason why WG doesn't want to give them the same credit earning capability as regular premium tanks is not because they are "average/OP/meh" or whatever. Its because they would satisfy the credit grinding needs of players. Aka, there isn't a player wanting to buy a premium tank for credit grinds as everyone can get these for free.

I'm not good at this game, its just that the rest of the server sucks~

Seems odd then that the marathon tanks get credit earning and are generally easier to get (the more recent ones at least).

55a is even worse given its very meh pen and ends up worse for credits than most tier 9s.

I would say that is because they are also available in the premium shop so there is an expectation that buying with real money means it has to have the general attributes of a premium vehicle. 

 

Reward tanks on the other hand only get the crew transfer ability and the tier bonus (IIRC) which is so small at Tier X to be hardly noticeable.

Which is why you sell them for credits, only thing they are useful for. Don't play them a lot and i guess eventually WG will do something about it and take a leaf out of WoWS's book.
