Statistical changes:

CZ

59-Patton

  • Maximum reverse speed changed from 16 km/h to 20 km/h.
  • View range with the 59-Patton turret changed from 370 m to 400 m.

    Improved the vehicle’s firepower and aiming parameters. Now this tank needs to aim at vulnerable enemy points and use its high damage per minute value to be effective. The view range of the vehicle has been increased, which will not only improve the efficiency of spotting an enemy, but will also positively affect the tank’s survival rate. Rearward speed has also been increased. This will further improve the tanks’ survival rate, by decreasing the time needed to get behind cover.

“A multipurpose vehicle that has all the striking features of Soviet medium tanks, and, due to its special hull design, outstanding armour. All these features have led to this tank beating its peers in terms of performance. It was therefore decided to review the performance characteristics of this vehicle and to render its battle characteristics at a level comparable to researchable Tier X medium tanks. That said, the T-22 med will keep its excellent armour and players who earned it will still remain owners of a powerful and unique combat vehicle.”

T95E2

  • Dispersion on the move with the T95E2 suspension decreased by 36%.

View range is also improved to 400 m. Now the range is the top of its Tier – you can spot for yourself and try to hit from afar.”

Japan

“In the Japanese tech tree there is an evident bias regarding vehicle popularity. The vast majority of players focus on the medium Tiers, from V to VI. Also, these tanks are significantly distinguished by their combat effectiveness against their peers from other branches. To resolve this situation, it was decided to make changes to their technical characteristics, in order to balance the combat capabilities of heavy tanks at Tier VI. At the same time, the Tier III and IV tanks cede a bit in terms of their statistics, so changes to their technical characteristics were made to improve their firing power.”
