Oh boy, another premium. And this time, its another Sherman! 

But wait! This time, its actually historical unlike the Furry Fury! And it actually looks pretty neat.

Kind of a Jumbo/Easy8 hybrid.

Looks interesting power creeps the Fury a bit though. 

Shame the US 76mm is such a shit gun. But these 'her' or 'tank ace' tanks should be fun and hopefully well balanced.

So we get basically another Fury? 

but without the copyright headache of Sony in the way. And a tank that actually existed and went to war, rather than some doodle WG brought to life

So it's another Premium that makes the older Premiums and tech tree tanks look like filler?  So are they just make a Premium tech tree now?  So you can buy the "good" versions of tanks instead of grinding with crappy versions?

tl;dr is I see this as the clear champion of the tier 6 shermans, defeating any reason to play the others.

 

Like tajj7 said, I'm seeing this as a sort of Jumbo/Easy 8 hybrid.

In terms of armor, the turret on the thunderbolt is pretty much a copy/paste of the top turret of the jumbo, but with enough armor on the cheeks to give same tier mediums some trouble.  The Thunderbolt also gets ~155mm eff UFP in exchange for a ~100mm eff LFP and MG port weakpost of paper.  Side hull will feel like a normal sherman, though the bits of spaced armor will save you from derps and not be instapen when you're just a bit under autobounce angling.  Overall, Jumbo seems to have more reliable armor (top turret aside), but I imagine the Thunderbolt will be better in practice because of the killer UFP and extra mobility.

This also actually manages to get the best gun stats too, reload speed aside.  For mobility, it is actually only a little slower than the E8, though it has the worst hull traverse of all the tier 6 shermans (but still not bad at all).

I'd argue that this tank gets rid of the reason to play either the jumbo with the top turret or E8/fury.  Thunderbolt gets a better gun (muh 0.3 second slower reload), much better mobility, makes more shekels and exp, and has better armor in many ways.  E8/Fury only gets a slight edge in mobility and the jumbo a slight edge in reliable hull armor.
