Two American tanks go to the Super test now in order to have their turrets tested!

 

M48A1 Patton gets its new turret (from M48A5) with a smaller cupola and improved front armor of the turret.

 

M46 Patton will have improved armor of the mantlet on the standard turret (it’ll be improved till the level of M26). Effective front armor of the top turret will be ~220 mm.

 

Now the top Patton doesn’t have good armor of the turret and is more vulnerable due to the cupola. The new turret together with the improved armor will make it possible to play based on the terrain and to “tank” more successfully.

For M46 Patton we will improve the armor of the front turret without replacing it, and will keep this branch as the branch of MTs with excellent elevation angle and solid turrets on high tiers.

 

 

Please, mind that testing on the Super test doesn’t entail inevitable release of vehicles’ changes on the main servers.

Ok, quick question, why do you want the Centurions to be obsolete?

Nice, but please also fix the butt-ugly 59-patton. The tank is fine, but it looks so silly with the cupola being so large.

2: Thanks to your lackadaisical attention to contacting/working with potential community contributors, the NA community lacks clear and direct community involvement and feedback.

But hey, at least you're getting paid while shoving most of communication to Dance (BTW ... kudos to her and the hard work she actually puts in... )

I can understand sort of why you buffed the M48, but I dont understand why you buffed one of the best tier 9 meds in the game. According to wot-news the M46 has a 51% WR, you guys won't even buff a tank that has 47-48% wr yet this one for some reason needed one?

These M60 posts get annoying and repetitive. Imagine, you could get good, participate in a campaign and earn an M60.

I don't get it either, the M46 is already perfect but I'll take any buff happily.

Didn't they say after the last campaign that offered the M60 that it wasn't going to be offered anymore though?

Haven't they said things like that in the past and BAM! it's a tier 8 premium bundle with crap we don't want. Come on you know they are going to do it.

and paper mediums like the Leo continue to just be pushed further, and further into oblivion in the craptastical 3 year old map meta coupled with #MausMeta that was horrifyingly boring 15 minutes after the stuporheavy over-buff hit the live server.

Because everyone has time to grind out however many tanks needed for a campaign, then spend even more time in said campaign to earn what's now a mediocre M48.
