I suspect this is answered somewhere, but I am curious...when I go into a match in, say,  a T-34 will I be fighting German tanks only, or will I be facing whatever tank from whatever faction the players on the other side happen to pick?

Assuming it is a historical free for all, can you set up matches with friends, so that theoretically you could create at least pseudo historical fights?

Devs said there will be mixed matches only (like they always do: right now we are not planning to make game faction based), though if you find enough people, you can create some kind of a historical battle.

IZI MODO?! Ha-ha-ha!

As it currently stands, they said that you will have mixed forces for most battles, but they will do some historical battles as well from time to time.

Faction fighting(not ffa pvp) would be a major player attraction  IMO.

I don't mind mixed battles.

Otherwise we'd end up such as in games as in WoW. Where on some Realms the battle starts with one team consisting of 8 people and the other of 15, because they are not equally popular. And starting such a fight is a pretty depressing thing if you are that outnumbered.

Mixed battles solve that problem.

the beta right now has random matching. you can make private "training" matches to fight faction based from what i understand. 

 

later patches/versions may add in historical battles of german vs allies. but for now you have german/russian vs german/russian

they are definitely planning on adding in historical battles, and battles limited to certain tank eras (like 1941).

for now it's mixed. there will be 15 vrs 15 team battles soon, with preset teams, so people will have the option of playing faction only battles if they want that way.

Historically they had mixed tanks in world war two, German forces would quite often use captured Russian tanks and Russians would use captured German, not  to mention the lend least tanks of the allied forces, Russians in shermans!
