just finished translating a Q&A from Anton Pankov together with Ctacello, this information was gathered from multiple Russian sources:
-We are thinking about the possibility to give temporary rentals to all premium vehicles.
-There are a lot of questions about the Czech branch. There are two options at the moment: a complete rebalance of the branch with buffs to all vehicles up to tier 8 along with tier 9-10 rebalance. Or waiting with the rebalance to the new “tank role” model global overhaul.
-There will be rewards for the Alpha and Beta WoT Testers. Unfortunately we wont make it on time to celebrate the WoT birthday (12/08/16) but we will be ready on the Tanker’s Day (11/09/16 – Russian holiday). There will be unique promotions.
会有一些给WoT A测和B测玩家的奖励。不幸的是没能及时在庆祝WoT生日时做完（2016.8.12），但会在坦克手节（2016.9.11 0v0）时准备好。会有独特的促销的
-The Role balance is expected to come during the summer, there will be more information about it around 10/05/16.
-New MM is now being tested and its named “preset”. More tests will come in the Summer.
-The M4A3E8 Fury wont be sold in the future because Sony pictures owns the rights of the this tank.
-IS-5 will only ever be a CW reward.
-Berlin and Paris will be added as random maps and there will be an extra third map that will be added this year but first the Devs want to fix the map rotation (receiving same map over and over again issue). There will be less maps this year.
-LT need to be given back their role as spotters as they are now only sightly playable. Tier 9-10 LTS are planned for the future but not right now.
-Team battle’s format will be reconstructed but not this year.
-We are hoping to add a new nation at the end of this year.
-Italian tech tree is planned to appear around 2017 or 2018. The team already gathered a full branch of HT, MT, LT and TD but there is little info about SPGs. The MT line will have a Leopard on Top but that’s as far as he is willing to comment on it. (RG: I wonder where he got the TDs completed… imaginary Pony land?)
