Once now and then, rumours spread that the Chinese Premium medium tank Type 59 is coming back on sale, usually around Christmas time. But it’s not Christmas yet, and we already have these rumours spreading like wildfire.
It started yesterday on World of Tanks Reddit, and some excited for it, others just don’t plain believe it. Based on the wording of Vehicle Rebalances in Update 9.20.1 article, some players and blogs speculate, Wargaming is hinting players the most hyped tank will be back with Update 9.20.1 for a short period. But, is this true? Of course not.
I’ve confirmed with Wargaming if there were any plans to sell the mythical Type 59 soon, and MrConway kindly responded to my question.
Not saying that we will never ever sell it again, but this buff is aimed at people that have had their Type sitting in the garage gathering rust because it’s been left behind a little. It will also make it more appealing as a prize for future contests etc.

It’s always good to double check these things but is always good to have some connections to be able to confirm them. But, if you still want a Type 59, I’ll give you a legit way of getting one, and this includes players from all regions.
