Its official, the NA portal just announced that the following tanks will be removed once 9.8 arrives:
- British Sexton I
- Soviet SU-85I
- American RAM II
- German Pz.Kpfw. IV Schmalturm
Personally, its indifferent for me that they will be removed, they are all "not too shabby" but nothing special like the TOG II. Perhaps the SU-85I and the Pz.Kpfw. IV Schmalturm would be worth getting (if you don't have them yet).
