So doing a little digging and by the angles I can see of the vehicle in the video, it would appear the turret used on the Champion would either be the D82081 or 7054366. Unfortunately, I can't pinpoint it without seeing top and rear of the turret as well. These turrets were used on the M4A1 76mm Shermans. This vehicle also fits the suspension being VVSS and the cast hull.

 

However, these turrets were only ever armed with 76mm guns and the model shows in the video is clearly using a 75mm...

take the Knight, it uses the higher-end gun stats with the lower-end gun model (or it did, and then was changed, I forget)

so its certainly possible to look like a 75 and play like a 76

That still doesn't solve the ahistorical nature though...

 

Why didn't Wargaming just use the M4A2 76(W)? It was a U.S. to Russia lend lease vehicle armed with a 76mm gun that would fit perfectly at tier 6. It also has 63.5mm of frontal armor just like the Easy 8 (M4A3E8).

 

Edit: I will be digging around for the actual stats once it is added to the game because I am genuinely curious about this vehicle.

Edit 2: I should probably get back to work... Been digging around about Panthers and Shermans for over an hour... :hiding:

You need to pick the right side though....so more like a 50% chance to get that silver.

It is a M4A1(76) VVSS  armed with the 76mm M1A1 gun. At least that is what is pictured.

Sorry WG, but this is just plain lazy. I didn't think you'd go with the new M4A2 Loza, but I honestly thought you'd go with a 'new' tier 6 Sherman Jumbo, but no, you've gone for the lowest hanging of fruit... Again.

 

Honestly, if you want to convince people that you aren't just spending the minimum amount of time and money on the console version  of the game I would suggest you stop reusing that cast M4 hull, over and over (is this just the Emcha reskinned?).

 

Now we'll have all these tanks using essentially the same hull model:

 

Champion M4

M4 Sherman

Firefly

Boilermaker

Revalorise

M51

Emcha

 

(plus the Frostbite and Grizzly, despite what WG may claim to the contrary)

 

Not angry WG, just massively disappointed. :(

Sadly, it looks like they are telling us in the news release that the nation will be whatever team wins, which I would assume to mean it is not a dual nation crew trainer.

It'll probably be like the champion panther, In the garage it'll show up under the winning teams flag but it'll be able to train both crews.

Thanks WG. You couldn't at least give us the 76mm.

I'm curious about the gun, tier, and MM. 

 

75 or 76?

5 or 6?

normal or PMM?

 

Right now I'm not all that excited...but maybe it will be a tier 5 with the 76mm and PMM.  Then I could sell that crappy E4...aka the naked Ripper.......which should actually be called a Rip-off!

I think it will be the 76mm gun. That turret never mounted a 75mm gun.

Well I was going to try and get some completions, but not for that, a slot and some silver might do 2 but not even going to concentrate on a nation will play normal and if I get some I get some no MVP for sure.
