New Czechoslovakian Tank Tree

Earlier, in late November, we published a gameplay overview of the upcoming Czechoslovakian Tank Tree.

This new tech tree, which has vehicles from Tier I to Tier X, is full of unique vehicles with peculiar strengths and weaknesses. This offers new play styles and a change of pace from using the same old tanks we've all seen before. 

Have a look at the gameplay overview here.

Vehicle Upgrades

Along with the new tanks in Update 9.13, there will be upgrades to existing vehicles, to improve your overall gameplay experience. Changes include increased mobility, better penetration, extra health, shorter reload times, and even improved main guns!
