    I have the Chinese Tier 8 light... WZ-132

    What's this premium Chinese tank you speak of?

    Doing a search I've found mention of the premium WZ-111. That'd be awesome because it'd let me train my 59-16, WZ131 and WZ132 crews faster :clap
    Any idea when it'll be available?

    I was really hoping they'd bring the Type59 back for the 2 year anniversary.


    edit: I've seen the 111 being referred to as a Chinese HEAVY too? Where did you see it referred to as a light? :scratch

    Who knew you can get a Super Pershing up to almost 40km/h using high octane gas.

    It has become part of my SPs stock kit now. Makes the tank MUCH more fun to play.

    Thanks Bri... I found it at the same time as you posted :freaky

    So do we know if the Type 62 or the WZ-111 is coming?

    Apparently the WZ-111 is already available on the Russian Servers.

    S-51: Elite. Now I can roll points over from it... and when it banks coin, it really banks coin.

    Type 62 and KV-5 will be available again in the Gift Shop for this weekend and this weekend only. It's been over 6 months since the Type 62 was on sale, and even longer for the KV-5, IIRC.

    I had one and didn't like it. Ended up selling it. I suppose in hindsight, I should have kept it just for crew training, but at the time, the Chinese line wasn't out.

    I don't recall exactly what I didn't like. My expectations may have been too high.

    Damn, can't believe I didn't try that.
    What did you remove to make room for it?

    Looking through its stats it is VERY similar to the WZ121 which I've been getting along fairly well with (I play it like a T20 - it goes well. I play it like a scount - not so much).

    I think I'll pick one up and if it works as well as the 121 I'll sell the 121 and enjoy the crew training and income bonuses

    :lurk
