The T1E6 is an American tier 2 premium light tank. It is currently not available from the in-game store.

Experimental vehicles T1E4 and T1E6 were heavily influenced by the British Vickers E. The first prototype was manufactured by the Cunningham corporation in 1931. The original intent of the T1E4 was to fix the problems caused by a frontal engine in the T1 Cunningham. However, the two different engines that were used in it proved to be insufficient. After trials in 1932, the T1E6 was made with an upgraded engine. However, a different experimental tank, the T2, was preferred.

This tank was given as a 2013 New Year's gift from Wargaming to all players. The tank is basically a "powered up" T1 Cunningham, having fast acceleration and impressive engine output. It has one of the highest hp/ton ratings for its tier, making it very maneuverable.

Mind that the gun is basically the stock gun on the T2 Medium Tank, and won't get you far when dealing with opponents. As with other Tier 1 weapons, the AP ammo costs zero credits. This, along with its increased earnings as a premium tank, makes it virtually impossible to lose money with it.

Historical Info

After tests with the T1 light tanks, it determined that a frontal engine was not desired. In 1931, the Cunningham corporation presented its design for an improved version of the T1 Cunningham, called the T1E4. Testing began in 1932 and the tank originally had a 110hp engine. The weak engine caused the vehicle to stall when turning and other various problems. It was then equipped with a more powerful 140hp V-8 Cunningham engine. Eventually, it was decided to give the tank a 244hp engine. This new tank was called the T1E6. However, even with the enlarged engine compartment, it was very crowded and difficult to service the engine. The project was eventually dropped.
