No, I don't know how to embed video. But here is Wargamings TankBowl video hoisted from Youtube. 

Can anyone identify this model of M4?

Looks like a M4A1 variant.
Can't tell you what the gun is, because I can't tell the 75mm and the 105mm apart.

You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.

Compilation thread of my ideas

Looks like the M4 with the upgraded turret but with the 75mm L/37

Oh god... Another 75mm armed Sherman?

 

Alright, lets break it down.

-75mm main gun

-VVSS suspension

-Cast hull (not welded)

-Appears to be single-hatch design (can't quite tell though)

-T23 turret design (probably early design)

What tier would that reward tank be in? Last year it was a tier VII and it seems this would be a tier V or VI, right?

Coolest part was it could train both USA and German crews, hopefully this M4 can do USA and Russian crews

during ops like this, low tiers is completely awful to play (for new players and for people grinding lines) #Premium rounds only #Premium tanks only,

Also, the 2018 Emblem is exactly the same as the 2017 one minus the Number change - maybe change the Color pallete slightly?

like Red trim to Blue trim...or change the 2 tanks in the icon?

Also, the way I see it the Champion M4 is literally the explosive love child of the Patriot and the Defender. Hopefully it retains both their stats too!!
