World of Tanks: 122 TM Next Marathon Tank?

2 min read

Update 1.11.1 had a hidden update for the Chinese Tier VIII Premium medium tank 122 TM. The vehicle price changed from 100 Gold to 8,450 Gold and lost the tags Test and Secret.

The changes to the vehicle mean it’s ready for release, meaning there are two possibilities at the moment: normal sales or incoming marathon!

The Daily Bounce received several tips saying the Chinese medium could very well be the next marathon tank, and if all goes according to what I was informed, should arrive during February, just in time for the Chinese New Year Celebrations.

Keep in mind, the information can’t be verified by my trusted sources, meaning we should take this with a few grains of salt. But, the first marathon of 2020 was in February, just before the update in March that brought the Expedition. If the calendar is to be similar, we could very well have a marathon very soon.

The Chinese New Year is on 12 February, so we most probably see the vehicle on a dedicated marathon near that date. Is it interesting enough for you to try and get it for free? Let us know in the comment sections.

  1. man these tier 8 med tanks keep getting higher and higher alphas….. gotta hate having 250 on the t54mod 1 🙁

    1. Yeah maybe, but T-54 mod 1 will still out-dpm it unless this tank will be able to use a hulldown position…

  2. holy bananas from banana land. This tank loooks traaasshh… 1400dpm 400 alpha with 16(!) sec reload. 280 frontal turret armor but 2 huge ass cupola’s… nice top speed though of 50km/h, passss

  3. I’m going to try to get it for free if it’s a marathon tank. Wasn’t the Kampfpanzer 07 RH or whatever it’s called rumored to be the first marathon tank this year though?

  4. Looking at all those tier 8 tanks… I think WoT tech trees and distribution of vehicles through tiers might need a major rebalance… It makes a little sense to have overgunned tanks on high tiers (9, 10) in tech trees, when there are their successors, or even successors of their successors (looking at you, M54) one or even two tiers lower…

  5. Looks like another op marathon tank. Too bad I don’t have 700 hours or 100 bucks to spend on it.

  6. Wow I thought the gun handling must be nice with 0,31 acc and 2,16 aim time for a 400 Alpha gun.
    Turns out the hidden soft stats say something different.

    It has the same garbage soft stats as the 274 which is only playable with a combination of IRM and Vstab where you are forced to ditch rammer for turbo since its so sluggish with its Power to weight of 17,26.
    The 122TM has a Power/Weight ratio of 15,47.

    This time I’ll even pass if it costs me 10€..

    1. Very unlikely, its a new Premium tank, not like the Type 59 Gold, that is a copy of an already sold tank… Black Market is for “special” vehicles and regular premiums already sold that have “low” impact but are “nice to have for credits”… Don’t ever expect to see a new Premium Tier VIII at the Black Market, WG can’t make money out of it that way.

  7. Tbh looks very good for me. T8 meds are boring, all have a very similar gameplay and the 240 – 250 alpha is not much interesting. The 2 huge tumors in turret and the bad DPM stops the tank of be an OP break game premium tank.
