KV-3 to be replaced by the T-150
The KV-3 moves one tier up (from tier 6 to tier 7). The T-150 substitutes it as a tier 6 heavy tank. Thus, the Soviet tech tree from tier 5 to 8 will look like this (disregarding KV-1S): KV-1 tier 5 -> T-150 tier 6 -> KV-3 tier 7 -> KV-4 tier 8.
Case 1. KV-3 isn’t in the garage at the time of substitution (update release), but is fully researched:
  • If engine “V-2IS” was researched in the research tree of KV-3 as tier 6 heavy tank, then it will be available in the research tree of KV-3 as tier 7 heavy. Same goes for the radio “10RK”;
  • If the turret of KV-3 was researched in the research tree of KV-3 as tier 6, then it will be available as a KV-3 turret in the research tree of KV-3 as tier 7;
  • If the KV-3 suspension was researched in the KV-3 tier 6 tree, then it will be available as suspension “KV-3 bis” in the research tree of KV-3 as tier 7;
  • In case the 107mm gun “ZiS-6” was researched in the KV-3 tree as tier 6, it will be available in the T-150 tree, which also leads to this gun available in the KV-3 tier 7 tree;
  • In case the guns 100mm “D-10T” and 122mm “D2-5T” were researched in KV-3 for tier 6, then they will be available in the KV-3 tier 7 tree;

  • All modules from KV-3 tier 6 in depot that don’t fit onto other vehicles (turrets, suspensions) are sold at original purchase price, credits received for selling them are added to player’s account. Modules of KV-3 tier 6, not fitting the KV-3 as tier 7 are also sold and credits go to player’s account;
  • All modules from KV-3 tier 6 fitting other vehicles (radio, engine, guns) are saved in the depot, same goes for all shells that can be used for its guns;
  • Any crew member in the barracks or in a tank, who possesses the KV-3 tier 6 skills, gets the ability to be used in the KV-3 tier 7 without any changes or losses;
  • Statistics earned on the KV-3 go to the T-150 without any changes or losses, all achievements are preserved;
  • Players get the T-150 as tier 6 researched with the KV-3 as tier 7 available in it’s tech tree.
Case 2. KV-3 is in the garage at the time of the substitution (update release). All the rules as mentioned in Case 1 apply along with the following ones:
  • KV-3 tier 6 is replaced by the KV-3 tier 7 and keeps its mounted modules: guns, radio, engines, and also gets top turret and top suspension if they have been available for KV-3 tier 6;
  • Ammunition loaded onto KV-3 goes to the depot;
  • Consumables (repair kit, aid kit, and etc.) mounted onto KV-3 tier 6 go to KV-3 tier 7;
  • Equipment mounted onto KV-3 tier 6 is demounted and moved to the depot without any losses or expenses for the player;
  • Crew members who have gained skills (as per point 9 of Case 1) while in KV-3 tier 6, go to KV-3 tier 7;
  • Camouflage mounted onto KV-3 tier 6 goes to KV-3 tier 7 and to T-150. The expiration date of the camo on both vehicles (KV-3 and T-150) stays the same as it was for the KV-3 as Tier 6 at the moment when the substitution took place.
  • Players get one slot for this tank in the garage for free;
  • Players get a default T-150 tier 6 without any additional modules or consumables, but with 100% trained crew, without special skills or perks.
