Yet another Tier VIII Premium enters Supertest: Caernarvon AX. This British heavy tank will continue the same play-style of other British heavy tanks, medium mobility, decent turret armour and good gun parameters. Caernarvon AX looks almost like an improved FV201 (A45).
Wargaming introduced eighteen Tier VIII Premium tanks to Supertest, just in 2017. Do we need more Tier VIII Premium tanks in the game? I would expect to see even more in the near future, as Wargaming has plans to introduce at least one Tier VIII premium tank to every branch.
