Wargaming has been laying some clues down, in regards a special collaboration with Swedish band Sabaton. With the first clue being an image with Gamescom date.
It was with no surprise to us, when later on Wargaming announced Sabaton will be playing in their area at Gamescom 2017. Together with that announcement a second image has emerged.
According to WOT-Express, the upcoming Swedish Premium Tier VIII Medium Strv 81 will be available during Gamescom 2017 and will come in two versions: the normal one we already know about and a special Sabaton Edition, just like Object 252U Defender, T26E5 Patriot and many others. There isn’t any pictures about it yet, my guess is that Wargaming is keeping this tank in some secret garage, so they can have some kind of surprise to announce during Gamescom 2017.
I’ve played the Strv 81 on a Press Account during one of Wargaming events, and if you like the British Tier VIII Centurion, you will like the Strv 81 as it’s the same tank with small improvements.
