Paris? liberation? wut?
We have pulled performance stats for all vehicles and looked at how they perform in game and we’ve been digging through our forums and the Steam discussions to gather as much community feedback as possible, and now we’ve rolled this into a great big balancing pass for armored vehicles (and AA cannons).
The next update is called ‘Walker’ after the American Major General Fred L. Walker, and here these tweaks, fixes, etc. will show up. Keep reading for more details on what is being improved.
With all the new Soviet equipment being presented you might sometimes lose track of what it is you can expect to see, so here is an overview of the Tank Destroyer and the medium and heavy tanks you can expect to either face or drive in the upcoming update!
The T-whatchamacallit, model year which-one? With so many awesome new tanks about to appear in the game it can be a bit difficult to tell them a part and remember their names, so to help out we’ve made this overview of the Soviet light tanks.
Ahead of the advancing Red Army, various recon and scout units can be spotted. The light armor and recon units use a number of different weapon and vehicles and one of their finest pieces of equipment is the T-26.
T-26 Model 1933
The T-26 is one of the most successful Soviet light tanks and is deployed on all the Soviet fronts. It is a further development of the British Vickers Mk. E. It is armed with a 45mm cannon and a 7.62mm machine gun.
Long time community member K120 has made a great little video showing off the tanks available in the game.
So put your tanker helmet on, hold an oily rag under your nose (not TOO close :-) ) and press play!
(remember to turn up, the volume and hit both the HD and full-screen buttons)
