August 27 at 08:00 through September 6 at 08:00 UTC
The same as every other Marathon – grind a lot of XP to progress through 10 levels, each level giving 10% off the Strv K. Once you own the tank, complete missions on specific days for valuable rewards and a discount on the 3D Style. The missions for the 3D Style must be completed in the Strv K.
The Strv K is the first Tier IX Premium in World of Tanks. It earns bonus Credits and Crew XP, as all other Premiums do. The cherry on the top is that you can also earn Bonds in the vehicle…
The Strv K comes with a 0-perk Brothers in Arms crew (Sabaton) – in Crew 2.0 this will be one of the most valuable crew instructors, so it’s worth considering the grind / buying the tank just for this. The tank stats themselves aren’t great – my T-34-85M has more DPM, (although I admit, that’s not a great comparison).

Summary of Rewards for Chapter II
Remember, Chapter II missions must be done in the Strv K and on the specific day! If you miss a day, you miss the mission.
The 3D Style costs 6,000 Gold and each mission grands 12.5% discount, meaning you can miss two missions and still receive the style for free providing, of course, you bought the tank early.
The most valuable rewards here are the Universal Manuals. You must complete the mission on August 29, September 1, and September 4 to get a Universal manual each of those days.

“A range of bundles with the tank will be available through to the end of the event (September 6 at 08:00 UTC) and for two more days after so that everyone can get hold of this heavy metal tank.”
It will be interesting to see how Wargaming do this with the % discounts. If there are multiple bundles available, the % discount must knock a certain amount off the bundles, rather than giving you 100% off the most expensive bundle.
