Source: VK Wotleaks community Hello everyone, it seems that Wargaming made an unusual step. You know about that tier 8 Soviet premium “light T-54″? Yeeeeea… so, the developers kinda are deciding not to make it a premium, but a Soviet tier 8 light tank, following the tier 7 “LTTB”. To that end, they - seriously buffed the ground resistance (as in, reduced it) - buffed the engine from 520 to 700hp (22,85 hp/t) (maximum speed is still 58,7 km/h) - buffed the hull traverse from 44 to 50 - viewrange buffed from 385 to 390 - hitpoints reduced from 1300 to 1200hp There are some smaller changes as well. These are of course only preliminary. Now, that’s a turn of events :)
