EMIL 1951: Swedish Tier VIII Premium Heavy Tank2 min read
The Swedish Tier VIII Premium heavy tank has entered the live server game files. With the latest micro patch, Update 188.8.131.52 has now the first Swedish Premium heavy tank ever, a much-waited tank since the release of the Swedish nation to World of Tanks.
EMIL 1951 was a prototype of the heavy tank developed for the Swedish army under the EMIL project in the 1950s. The development was preceded by deep scientific research – all required characteristics were calculated using complex formulas. Based on the calculations, a draft design was prepared in 1951, but development was discontinued in favour of later versions.
No details yet when this vehicle will be on released but all stats present in the article are the most up to date ones.
These characteristics apply to the vehicle with the crew trained to 100%.

Yer, still can’t say I’m a fan of how WG are doing this. Would rather WG give this correctly modelled and named Emil 1951 to the incorrectly modelled and named Emil 1951 that’s in the tech-tree.
They could have used the actual Emil 1 as the premium or mixed it up and used the Strv K. Balance the Strv K by giiving it a single shot version of the 10.5cm TK 105-9… which incidentally is the lvkan L/67 which WG have decided to represent as an autoloader on this tank.
WG have a serious thing going on with Sweden to continue screwing over the HT’s 2 years after first release
WG is just doing what they do best: do whatever they want in their game… been doing it for the last 8 years 😀
True, but this definitely seems to be, at least to me, taking it a step further. At least with previous “clone” premiums they were either for different nations or some variation of the original. Never have they made a modelled and named a tank incorrectly just to sell the correctly named and modelled version of the same tank as a premium.
Hell, they didn’t even come up with a new description, just reworded the two year old description of the “Emil 1”:
“A variant of the heavy tank developed for the Swedish army under the EMIL project in the 1950s. Design solutions used for the French AMX 13 tank influenced the project, which is obvious from the design of the turret. In 1951, a draft design was prepared, but development was discontinued in favour of later versions.”
