For the Record: Yuri Pasholok Q&A
Source: VK Wotleaks community Hello everyone, as you might or might not remember, Yuri Pasholok (Wargaming’s chief historian) is working on a long term project, renovating some tanks at the Central Museum of Armored Forces in Moscow. This includes scraping off the rust, sandblasting, re-painting them and such stuff. He’s not however doing it alone, the “crew” consists also of volunteers and one of them, Ivan Karetnikov, helped out with the work, asking some things in the process. Here’s what he learned. - FV4202 switch will most likely not come this year. The reason for that is that the developers have to physically go to the Bovington Museum to 3D scan the Action X turret. If the turret doesn’t get scanned, the model will simply not be made. - VK4502 Ausf.B could become a tier 7-8 premium vehicle with mediocre mobility and its historical gun and armor (SS: 88mm L/71, 80 or 100mm of armor IIRC). This would happen after the tank gets switched for Maus prototype - Swedish tanks will be in the EU tree - tier 1 of EU tree will be Fiat 3000B with 47mm armor and tier 2-3 gun, but poor mobility (SS: this is some weird shit, this tank has absolutely nothing to do with other branches of the tree) - Italian EU branch (SS: note that there will not be a separate Italian tree apparently) hightier tanks will be M47 Patton and Leopard 1 clones - Stanislaw Lem’s “Czolg Pancernik” could (seriously) become a tier 10 Polish tank. It’s apparently mediocre, but Slava Makarov (one of the main producers and such) did not say “no” to the idea of this tank in the game.
