The time has finally come to let Swedish reinforcements loose on the battlefield. Along with the new Tech Tree, which introduces some cool new mechanics, we’ve also buffed a number of Premium vehicles based on your feedback.
Here's what you need to know before rolling out in Update 9.17.
World of Tanks servers will be down on 16 Dec from 03:00 to 08:00 SGT (UTC +8) to get everything in order. Also, we’ll be freezing the Global Map for 24 hours, temporarily closing the Clan portal and cancelling Strongholds battles (except skirmishes).
The TDs are lightly armored, making them quick off the mark. They can bring the pain with their decent guns and stay safe with their low silhouettes. At tiers VIII–X, the TDs introduce Siege and Travel modes. The former considerably ramps up your ability to deal damage. The latter is for when you need to secure your position.
The mixed branch has light, medium, and heavy tanks. Early-tier and mid-tier tanks have good gun elevation arcs and can perform a wide number of combat roles. At the higher end, the EMIL I, EMIL II, and Kranvagn have the nation’s trademark gun depression and autoloaders.
Thanks to your feedback, we’ve made the first round of changes to several Premium vehicles, tweaking the combat parameters of the FV4202, STA-2, M4A1 Revalorisé, T26E4 Super Pershing, WZ-111, Löwe, Panther 8.8, T34, M46 Patton, and 112.
Improvements were also made to the French heavy tanks АМХ 50В and АМХ 50 120.
