This has been requested from a couple of people, so I am going to maintain a list of every premium tank, when it last sold, what it last cost etc. and then keep it up to date.

Any comments/suggestions, as usual, let me know and I'll do my best to accommodate.

As a general rule, tanks come to store once every 6 months, I will make a note where that rule doesn't get followed below.

Also, where two prices are listed, these will be the equipped and non-equipped versions of the tank in that offer.

One final note, I have deliberately left off all tech tree premiums as they are always available in-game, even though they do come in offers now and again.

 

 

Tier X

Country Tank Date Price Notes
USA M60 --- --- Has appeared in a Pop-up offer for £100 but has never been available in the store

UK Light VIC --- Giveaway tank Never been sold

 

Well, that wraps the list up. I'll update as new offers come in, and add new tanks as they arrive as well. At least you now can see all the premiums in one place, when they last sold and how much for so you can have a good idea of what to expect to pay and when a tank will next drop.

And as a useful tracker. This table shows how much you would have to play a tank (any price) and over how many battles to get to a certain cost per game played!

 

Games £/€ 5 £/€ 10 £/€ 15 £/€ 20 £/25 £/€ 30 £/€ 35 £/€ 40 £/€ 45 £/€ 50
10 0.500 1.000 1.500 2.000 2.500 3.000 3.500 4.000 4.500 5.000
50 0.100 .0200 0.300 0.400 0.500 0.600 0.700 0.800 0.0900 1.000
100 0.050 0.100 0.150 0.200 0.250 0.300 0.350 0.400 0.450 0.500
150 0.033 0.067 0.100 0.133 0.167 0.200 0.233 0.267 0.300 0.333
200 0.025 0.050 0.075 0.100 0.125 0.150 0.175 0.200 0.225 0.250
250 0.020 0.040 0.060 0.080 0.100 0.120 0.140 0.160 0.180 0.200
300 0.017 0.033 0.050 0.067 0.083 0.100 0.117 0.133 0.150 0.167
350 0.014 0.029 0.043 0.057 0.071 0.086 0.100 0.114 0.129 0.143
400 0.013 0.025 0.038 0.050 0.063 0.075 0.088 0.100 0.113 0.125
450 0.011 0.022 0.033 0.044 0.056 0.067 0.078 0.089 0.100 0.111
500 0.010 0.020 0.030 0.040 0.050 0.060 0.070 0.080 0.090 0.100
750 0.007 0.013 0.020 0.027 0.033 0.040 0.047 0.053 0.060 0.067
1000 0.005 0.010 0.015 0.020 0.025 0.030 0.035 0.040 0.045 0.050

 

So for example, the item highlighted shows that if you bought a tank for £25, then to get to an average cost of £0.10p per battle you would have to play 250 battles in it.

 

This puts into perspective how much you would have to play any premium tank to actually get the cost-benefit from it.

Couple of differences that my memory makes me believe!

T7 Combat car....free? Not sold.

T6E1...about 3000 gold recently.

T34-85 Victory....don't remember it costing as high as that....I normally don't buy them over £10.

Stridvagen 74A2 .....as above it was either less than £10 or in a chest!

T34-85 Rudy.....I never bought that for gold as I have it on my second account that I never have that quantity of gold even when I rage sold all the nerfed "blue" tanks that WG made. Also have it on my first account and don't hunk I used that much gold for any tank!

ISU 122S....as above for the Rudy....û

T34 Independence.....Have never used that much gold for any tank....

 

IS6.....you have not included this one, and I paid £6.99 on a pop up offer for it!

Combat car was sold in January. Check out my other thread, post # 406

T6E1 was a popup offer, I never got to see that as I already had it. I'll add it as is

T-34-85 Victory was up with a bunch of tanks at the same price. Post # 86 in my thread.

The stridsvagn is available in a steam only bundle currently for £7.99 but I omittd that as not everyone will be able to use it. I will add a note.

T-34-85 Rudy was actually sold at one point for only 3250 gold, but that was a black Friday offer. See post #.910 for the last sale

ISU-122S was bundled with other tanks this year, has definitely not been sold for less than 5.5K on its own.

T34 Independence has been in crate events as well, but I was sticking to sales here only. Was also in the black Friday sales for 5250.

 

As for the IS-6, I deliberately left off all of the tech tree premiums as there is no rhyme or reason to any offers on those, and they are always available to buy at their fixed prices.

Many thanks for you great list, Stubbo! :medal:

 

Your reliable consistency extends into the spelling errors. :)

 

The name of that famous American 3-star general was George S. Patton

The Chinese heavy tanks were designated 11x, the mediums 12x. So the correct designation for that tier 8 heavy is WZ 112-2.

The Sentinel IV is a tier VI, but otherwise a good bit of work.

 

The tier II Vickers Light was a free premium too.

Empros is recruiting! Message me in game to apply.

Wow picky...…

 Thanks anyway Stubbo for taking the time out of your daily schedule and putting this together so we can all have more information than we would have had.

 Please keep up the good work
