Hey Tankers!

We continue to work on improving the Clan reward tanks. These are four Tier X vehicles awarded for participation in Global Map activities: the 121B, the T95E6, the VK 72.01, and the M60.
In their second Supertest, we are going to introduce several tweaks based on the previous round of testing.

 

121B


We’re keeping the new concept for this one: an agile and maneuverable ride with great spotting range and camo (one of best among Tier X medium tanks). We feel that we took the right approach, but the 121B is still lacking in mobility. So in the second round of testing we’ll boost its engine from 580 to 700 hp (and specific power from 15.3 to 17.5 hp): higher than that of Soviet medium tanks! You’ll get a fast tank efficient at long distances.

 

T95E6 


This large American makes a great medium distance damage dealer. Still we must admit that we were too rough on it. In the second round we’ll restore its former gun accuracy and armor penetration, and will keep the rest of the changes. The second testing iteration of the T95E6 will become more mobile, with better DPM and gun stabilization. The HP pool will remain lowered (by 100) as a support medium tank just shouldn’t be equal to heavies in this department.

 

VK 72.01


This tank will remain a Global Map heavyweight used to tie down a much larger enemy force—by taking lots of punishment while also punching back. The first round of testing has shown that the 72.01 can do this fine even without extra HP, so we’re ditching these. Yet we want the VK to last even longer on the battlefield. So we’re making its turret even tougher by improving the weaker spots like the gun mantlet and the forward part of the turret ring. We’re letting go of the improved gun stabilization as this tank is most often employed as a stationary firing point.

 

M60 


This tank will enter the second phase completely unchanged. We’ll see how perfect the tweaks are :)

 

Best of luck in your battles and make sure to follow the news!

I thought we were trying to move away from Premium ammunition? Why are we buffing their Premium pen to 350mm? It doesn't make any sense. And even then, why is the T95E6 the only one not receiving the pen buff; especially if it's the only tank on the list losing something as well?

Thank you so much for listening to us. The t95e6 never needed that god awful nerf. Thank you for restoring it and giving it's buff :). The 121b like holy crap I am going to like my 121b even more then I already do :). The vk gold pen buff.......I am still 50/50 on that due to the e100 and grille 15 not getting the same buff as well. They use the same caliber shell so they should also get the same buff.

Cabbage, do have any idea when these changes will be implemented and also when will we be able to buy the with bonds? Rough estimate that is.

Soo this said buff to the vk72 mantlet and turret ring, will this be applied to its counterpart the PZ7 seeing as its literally the same tank

Who's bright idea was it to try and nerf the pen on the T95E6?  Why was this idea brought up to nerf it so badly that it has similar pen to a low velocity 150mm shell like the VK 72.01K?  Why was it even tried?!

If this gets implemented, will the PZ. VII also get the change? If not then the general population will again receive the short end of the stick, especially because they have the same exact armor model at the moment.

People need to get over the PZ VII and VK similarities..... they both cannot be the exact same tank with the exception of the gun.

 

VK should be far more unique hence the reward value.

They should have thought of that before putting it in. The PZ VII is underpowered because it has those same weakspots. If they are removed then it will be fine.
