It seems the Object 252U Defender will be an exclusive for RU Region. That means other regions will get the normal Object 252U without the Defender camouflage. Both tanks are planned to go on sale within a few weeks on their specific regions.
I’ve just been informed the previous information was wrong. Wargaming is planning on releasing the Object 252U Defender to all regions without limitation. The Object 252U Defender is part of a series of “Hero Tanks” together with the AMX M4 49 Liberté and the T26E5 Patriot. It will be available to purchase without camouflage (this includes the EU Region too) and it has different hull shape and gun from other soviet premium heavies such as IS-6.
