New Look for Technical Characteristics in Garage

Tank Commanders,

Update 9.15 will bring with it an updated representation of technical characteristics for both vehicles that are available in the Garage and vehicles that have not been researched or purchased yet.

Players will be able to view parameters of concealment, gun depression/elevation, and some other parameters that previously were not been displayed. Dynamic changes of the technical characteristics (depending on the mounted equipment/modules, trained Perks/Skills of the crew members, etc.) will also been implemented.

The description below contains details about the updated representation of technical characteristics in the Garage.

New Representation of Technical Characteristics

Click and drag on the slider or click on the "Before" and "After" buttons to see a Before/After comparison between the old and new representations of technical characterstics.

In the new version, players will be able to choose between two formats for the display of technical characteristics: in the game settings players can select either the previous display format or the new one. The only need to open the game settings and check/uncheck the Display Simple Technical Characteristics in Garage option.

Simple Technical Characteristics In this format, vehicle parameters are classified under five groups: Firepower, Survivability, Mobility, Concealment, and Recon.

  • Firepower— This is the group of technical characteristics that describe the gun and its aiming parameters. It comprises the following:
    • Standard Shell Damage;
    • Standard Shell Penetration;
    • Rate of Fire;
    • Gun Reload Time;
    • Gun Traverse Speed;
    • Gun Elevation/Depression Angles;
    • Aiming Time;
    • Dispersion at 100 m;
    • Average Damage per Minute;
    • Other details.
  • Survivability— This is the group of technical characteristics that describe vehicle's qualities which determine its survivability in battle:
    • Number of vehicle durability points;
    • Hull Armor;
    • Turret Armor.
  • Mobility— This is the group of technical characteristics that describe vehicle mobility:
    • Weight/Load Limit;
    • Engine Power;
    • Specific Power (engine power/weight ratio);
    • Speed Limit;
    • Traverse Speed.
  • Concealment— This is a completely new characteristic that describes effectiveness of vehicle concealment:
    • Concealment of a Motionless Vehicle (before and after a shot);
    • Concealment of a Moving Vehicle (before and after a shot);
  • Recon This is the group of technical characteristics that describe the View Range and Signal Range:
    • View Range;
    • Signal Range.

Each group of technical characteristics has a rating that indicates effectiveness of each vehicle aspect. 

Dynamic Technical Characteristics

Dynamic technical characteristics are parameters that can change their value depending on mounted equipment, the levels of the major qualifications achieved by crew members, acquired Perks and Skills, particular types of consumables, etc. Changes to the technical characteristics will be displayed in the Garage. For example, once all crew members have acquired the Brothers in Arms perk, you will be able to see the effect it has on the technical characteristics of the vehicle.

Tooltips of modules/additional equipment will also be changed. They will display not only information about the module/additional equipment, but also the changes to technical characteristics that will occur after mounting the module. Now, you will be informed of which characteristics have been affected after mounting Improved Ventilation or using food consumables.

In addition to the dynamic technical characteristics, the tooltips will display new information. For example, ammunition tooltips now contain information about armour-piercing potential at distance.

Vehicle Preview Mode

The preview mode allows players to view new vehicles before purchasing them. This includes not only the technical characteristics, but also the vehicle itself. You will now be able to preview the in-game model of an unpurchased vehicles in the Garage. The preview window can be opened from the Tech Tree and from the Armory.

In the preview mode players will be able to view the vehicle and look through its technical characteristics in different configurations (top/non-top gun, etc.).
