|Prototype of M2 Light tank with Vickers suspension. One was built by Rock Island Arsenal to be tested in 1934, but its performance was insufficient and tank was sent to redesign, which resulted in M2A1 Light Tank.|
|In early '50s US Ordnance Committee ordered new light tank to replace M41 Walker Bulldog. Cadillac and DATP proposed their designs, but the tanks seemed not very promising. In 1953 project was scrapped and only wooden mockup of the DATP project (on which the vehicle depicted in the game is based) was built.|
|First of the Daimler-Benz proposed 30-tanks on which order was placed in 1941. Since the design was almost carbon copy of soviet T-34, it was rejected.|
|In 1940 German forces captured several British Vickers Mk VIB tanks left during evacuation of Dunkerque. In 1942 12 of these tanks were rebuilt as a self-propelled guns, but all were lost in 1944 during defence of France. |
Full name of the vehicle is 10,5cm leFH 16 auf Fgst GeschŁtzwagen Mk VI(e), but sometimes name 10.5cm leFH 16 (Sf) auf le Pz.Kpfw. Mk IV 736 (e) may be also present.
|In early 1941 Great Britain ordered 100 M2A4 tanks to be delivered as a part of the Lend Lease programme. However after receiving 36 units, order was cancelled in favour of M3 Stuart.|
|In 1939 Ordnance Corps gave order to American Car and Foundry to begin production of final model of Light Tank M2 tank. This version had thicker armor and 37 mm gun. 375 units were made and they were used in Guadalcanal Battle.|
|Initial model of Light Tank M2 tank. It was armed with .50 cal machine gun. Depending on the sources from 10 to 17 units were made.|
|One of the first american self-propelled guns, that was created in 1930. Due to Great Depression, project was cancelled in the prototype stage.|
|FV 201 hull combined with Centurion Mk II turret, created when the works on Conqueror were delayed. Only one prototype of Mark I was built.|
|This tank was part of 7th Guards Independent Heavy Tank Brigade and was depicted on the famous photo took in front of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.|
|In 1946 AMX presented new design for tank destroyer, but its rather large dimensions, thin armor and overall complexity of the vehicle were unappealing for army forces and project was halted even before the prototype. |

|While the Germans planned to build an artillery on E-100 chassis, the project was never taken further than the drawing board. Vehicle depicted in the game is fabrication of Wargaming.Net built out of the various ideas of the Entwicklung program. |

|Again, not much is known about this tank apart from the fact it was made in LKZ and was experimental vehicle.|
|Prototype of 40 ton Centurion developed since 1956 to 1959. Vehicle was unsuccessful and project was stopped, but many of innovations were used later in Chieftain tank.|
|Experimental tank destroyer built on Centurion tank chassis. It used 183mm gun, mounted in lightly armoured turret. Vehicle was proven unsuccessful and the project was halted. FV 4005 can be seen in Bovington museum.|
|This Japanese medium tank was developed since 1943, but the project was abandoned to give more manpower and resources to the development of Type 4 Chi-To. Only one prototype was built, but it never received armament and was finally captured by US Army. |

|When China and USSR broke their good relationship, former country felt that they need a tank that would work as a countermeasure for soviet T-62. They decided to create new tank, designated as 121, but after realizing it would took too much time, they decided to move the resources to Type-69, known as WZ 121. All prototypes of 121 were destroyed in China nuclear tests.|
|Accordingly to some legends circling around, one German team managed to refit captured soviet T-34-85 with cannon taken directly from Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger. Due to these legends Wargaming decided to create such tank and place it in the game. From what it was said Tiger gun would never fit original soviet turret, so it's quite safe to assume such vehicle was never created. |
If there was however any undeniable proof that such vehicle was indeed created, I am leaving this entry as unknown as of now.

|Second of the prototypes of first post-war japanese tank made by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.|
|Great, my comment was deleted, again... without apparent reason...again.|
Sometimes I really wonder why I hang around on this God-forsaken site, where power-hungry moderator/admin is deleting comments, at least half of members are barely literate in terms of cars, and people are replacing good pictures with awful ones.
If you won't want this to be completed, so be it, but at least tell me about it, instead of deleting comments like a child. Why do I even bother?
|Soviet tank destroyed built by converting captured german Panzerkampfwagen III tanks. |
I am not sure about the manufacturer should be. Initially factory was called KPZ, but it was evacuated in 1941 and combined with Zavod No.37 to create new factory, which was called Zavod No.38 "Kuibyshev". SU-76I was created in 1943 so long after the merging of two factories. Should it stay as No.83 or rather Kuibyshev?
|One of the Churchill (in this case Mk III) tanks that we sent to USSR as a part of Lend Lease agreement.|
|In year 1955 Batignolles-Ch‚tillon company started to build their own artillery. One prototype was built, but project was cancelled in 1959. |

|Proposal of building heavy self-propelled gun on the chassis of Conqueror tank. No prototype, nor even model was built and accordingly to Wargaming.Net site only blueprints were created. |
If someone could confirm it or deny it it would be nice, because internet is rather silent about this vehicle.
|Soviet self-propelled gun with 122mm M-30 howitzer, built on T-34 chassis. It's worth noting that vehicle has wrong gun mounting, using the one from SU-85 instead.|
|Idea of upgraded E-50, with transmission moved to the back of the vehicle. Tank is completely made by Wargaming.net.|
|Heavy tank destroyer prototype on IS-7 chassis. Only wooden model was built in the '50s, but project was halted due to fact that IS-7 wasn't produced.|
|Watch out for this tractor - it's gross. |
Seriously, though, one of the first german armored vehicles made before II World War. Six prototypes were made and they were tested in USSR. Since they were proven unsatisfactory, they were either used as a training machines, used for monuments or scrapped for metal.
|Absolutely fictional vehicle made by Wargaming.Net. Apparently nobody in the studio is fond of this vehicle and accordingly to sources close to the makers, it will be changed to something more real somewhere down the line.|
|Apparently it's successor to 112 tank and again there is no information about it whatsoever.|
|Any reason why manufacturer was changed again?|
|Who changed it to IS-7, especially that is not correct name of the tank?|
|Any particular reason why manufacturer was changed from Malyshev?|
|Foch tank destroyer with 155mm cannon. When French engineers managed to install 120mm cannon in the AMX-50 tank and AMX 50 armed with the same gun became unnecessary, there was an idea to increase its firepower by installing higher caliber weapon. Idea was dropped when France changed their army vehicles into NATO standards.|
|Another fictional vehicle created by Wargaming.net. This time it's Conqueror turret installed on some strangely modelled chassis.|
|I compared them and I made a choice. Let's put the cargo bed aside, since that can be changed. We should focus on the cab instead. Whole front part of the cab is REO, with the difference of the sloppiness of the hood. Glasshouse is closer to US6, but it isn't as sloped. |
Sure roof is solid, but it's actually quite clear it was made to be mix of the two. For me it's more of a REO than Studebaker.
|Prototype of super heavy breakthrough tank created accordingly to N.L. Dukhov's design. Historically N. Shashmurin's project was selected to production, but project was dropped in favour of KV-5 tank. |

|No way in hell this is an US6. Everything from the ground up is REO and the only thing that was taken from US6 is similar shape of the glasshouse. |

|You know what's bullshit here? Your post.|
Since World of Tanks is Free 2 Play game, technically every vehicle in the game is downloadable, as there is no other way to acquire the game, but that would be overkill.
And since igcd doesn't support any way to mark vehicles as premium/standard in F2P games like WoT I had to pick some way to differentiate them. I choose this way as it was the closest to what particular stars represent. And thus premium vehicles became downloadable as you have pay for both with real money and gift vehicles became unlockable, as you have to do something specific to earn one of these. Additionally way to acquire specific vehicle is also wrote down, whether it can be done via tech tree, in game shop or something more specific.
As you may know, there is one saying: "krytyk i eunuch z jednej są parafii, obaj wiedzą jak żaden nie potrafi," which can be translate into "critic and eunuch are quite similar, both know how, yet none cannot do (for these who don't read Polish language).
So, please, if you have better idea to mark vehicles in this and similar games, until igcd will be changed to reflect closer such situations, write it down. I am not saying my idea was the best idea, but it was only thing I came up with to show people how they can acquire specific vehicle. If your idea will be better, I will gladly use it and change every entry so far to use it.
|Final form of TOG II tank, featuring Stoddart and Pitt turret and 17-pdr gun. Soon after building that prototype, project was abandoned.|
|T1 tank with electrical transmission. 20 Units were built.|
|Apparently Krupp has the chance to make heavy tank destroyer based on the E-100 chassis. Project was cancelled, before any work was done. Only technical drawing of this project remained.|
|Ordnance Corps wanted to modify existing T1E1 tanks, by adding additional frontal armor and new armament. General Eisenhower saw this project as impracticable and rejected the idea.|
|Former Chinese light tank design originally intended as one of the "tributes to the 10th anniversary of the founding of the PRC". This tank however was too weak to fight against the western tanks at that time, it was eventually set aside by the military.|
|Brazilian upgrade of american M41 Walker Bulldog light tank.|
|Apparently one of the early Bergepanthers (tank towing vehicle) was fitted with Pz IV turret and served as a command tank of Schwere Heeres Panzerjager Abteilung 653. |
The turret however, should be not traversable as it was depicted in the game.
|Tank very similar to Freedom and Liberte - basically normal tank, in this case Cromwell, with some special camouflage.|
|Prototype of Soviet Self-propelled gun based on the T-44 chassis, which design was made by Uraltrashmash bureau. Since the vehicle was too heavy in comparison to SU-100-M2 designed by Uralmash, project was cancelled in 1945.|
