It’s a bird… it’s a plane… It’s a camouflaged light tank! In the coming update named Zhukov (after the Soviet Marshal Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov) comes camouflage for a selection of light tanks.
To succeed on the battlefield as a light tank driver you should always try to stack the odds in your favor by utilizing your strengths compared to heavier opponents. Being smaller, faster and more maneuverable allows you to better utilize terrain to hide yourself and move into flanking positions. Stay mobile and do not be afraid to relocate once your position has been compromised. The option to apply camouflage to your light tank will help you to stay undetected.
Straight from factory to front! In the coming update named Zhukov (after the Soviet Marshal Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov) comes the BA-6 Recon vehicle. This is the first 6-wheeled vehicle in the game and its two-person crew can punch above their weight-class with both speed compared to tracked vehicles and a very effective cannon.
The BA-6 is a heavily armed Soviet six-wheeled armored scout car. It uses the same turret as the T-26 light tank. It is armed with a 45mm 20K main gun and a 7.62mm DT coaxial machinegun for defense against infantry.
