Quoted from Awesome Epic Guys 

"WG: Very soon the UDES 03 Alt 3, a Tier IX Swedish medium tank, will roll out onto the Supertest. Just like other high-tier Swedish medium tanks, this vehicle has a hydropneumatic suspension allowing it to tilt its hull. The nominal gun depression angle is -7 degrees; with the suspension-aided tilt it can reach -13 degrees. The vehicle enters the hull tilt mode automatically. The UDES 03 Alt 3 carries a gun that deals an average of 360 damage points per shot and has a dispersion of 0.35 m and an aiming time of 1.9 s. Armor penetration is 252 mm with the basic APCR shell and 284 mm with the special APCR shell. The gun reloads in 10.2 s. The tank’s view range is 380 m. The frontal armor of the Swede is 66 mm thick. Its top speed equals 50 km/h, with a specific power of 18 hp per tonne. The HP pool amounts to 1,600 points. Gameplay-wise, the UDES 03 Alt 3 is much like other high-tier Swedish medium tanks. It has a low silhouette, a hydropneumatic suspension, and a gun with decent parameters. Just like its mates, it’s good at what mediums usually do (like flanking and quick breakthroughs), plus such things as terrain-based play and ambushing."
 
It looks like it sacrifices a bit of alpha damage for greatly increased penetration and improved gun handling. We still don't have the soft stats (if you find them post them please) but the much better aim time, low turret armor, and more bulky turret profile suggests this tank will have less reliable armor as well. Over all tho, this looks  a lot less OP than the new auto-loaders from France and the Soviet Union. Does anyone know hat this will be a reward for or if it is a tech tree tank?

WG has been making a lot of weird tier 9 special vehicles lately. Nobody's certain what's going to happen to most of them, except that the French one is confirmed to be a Frontlines/Steel Hunter reward next year.

I'm still pretty sure WG dropped that they plan on making just normal tier 9 premiums, though I can't remember where I read that.

Some of these might be rewards for new CW campaigns. They might stop giving 10s because of all the backlash from plewbs that can't deal with tanks like the Chieftain and 907. Also didn't they mention in a video a new Personal Campaign?

Fuck tier 9 amirite? 

Eh, the UDES isn't like the Project 4-1 or bobject 752. It honestly is about as good, probably even a little worse, than the tier 9 Swedish tech tree tank. It has worse alpha, reload, and by extension DPM. The turret resembles the tier 8 and is probably not well armored, the hull is worse, and it is slower than the tech tree variant (soft stats could change that). The only things better are the aim time and penetration, and we have not seen soft stats for the UDES 03 Alt 3 yet. It is pretty well rounded, but not quite as good over all when compared to its tech tree counterpart. 

As for the supertest tier 9s, over all I find it worrisome that Wargaming is fucking around with OP tanks at my favorite tier right now and has a 1/3 track record for reasonable tier 9s, but the UDES 03 Alt 3 isn't a meta changing tank like the object 752 or a mix of odd extremes like the Project 4-1. I fully expect all of these to go into the game pretty much as is because the supertest is more of a marketing ploy now days than a place where WG actually tests stuff.

this means nothing to me

WG is going full steam ahead making tier 9 reward tanks, this means there WILL be OP ones that slowly begin to ruin the last decently balanced tier in the game. now or later it will happen

it also means purchasable tier 9 premiums are becoming more and more realistic for the future

You know what Wargaming always says. Disappointing, but pretty much inevitable.
