^ Gameplay wise i totally agree. PR wise may not have been the wisest thing to do as many people are upset over RU meds in general right now. (along with that upcoming new RU med, whose name i can't remember right now)
M46/48/60 buffs are likely well appreciated
I missed the part where they want 1 of each class as prems for all nations.
That new Russian med is next CW award, so irrelevant for a majority of the players. Also it (has a potential) to be quite a bit different than the 140/430/62 family. Soviet one is a lazy, but safe choice (Pasholok scanned a lot of the Soviet archives regarding tank development so plenty of contenders).
Real problem is that "Russian Tanks OP" narrative is still alive among mouthbreathers and whatever WG does (and it does a lot of bad moves) it will be a problem even if Soviet tanks underperform (and a larger % of them does on EU server than any other tree).
Re M46/48/60 -
M48 will have Urdan low profile TC cupola and better turret armor, so it will be M48A5 (I think designation changes also).
M60 also got same cupola and better turret armor.
M46 got better turret armor and some other buffs.
