Due to gameplay changes which will be added in 8.6 update, it was found that the American Tier VIII medium tank T26E4 SuperPershing and French Tier IV SPG 105 lefH18B2 will require change of some in-game characteristics, while the British Tier III SPG Sexton is not yet ready for addition to the in-game stores.
It was decided to change the historically incorrect frontal upper and lower armour plate’s angles of T26E4 SuperPershing hull. No changes will be done in 8.6 update, but the tank will be removed from the in-game store and gift shops. Owners of T26E4 SuperPershing will be able to continue playing on the vehicle as it is during the 8.6 update.
In one of future updates, T26E4 SuperPershing will be re-introduced to the in-game shop in rebalanced variant: inclination angles of frontal armor plates will be reduced by 12 degrees in order to correspond to historical variant. Aside of that, as compensation of armour nerf, other parameters of the vehicle will be rebalanced and buffed (details will be announced with separate news article). Owners of T26E4 SuperPershing, who have purchased it prior to the changes, will have opportunity to sell it for full price in gold (7200), or have renewed vehicle in their disposal.
French Tier IV SPG 105 lefH18B2 will be moved to Tier V (Match Making of this vehicle will remain the same) without change of any battle characteristics, and will be removed from in-game stores. Owners of this SPG will still have it in their hangars. In the future, 105 lefG18B2 will be given as special awards during specials and events.
Due to rebalancing of all SPGs in the game in version 8.6, release of new premium British SPG Sexton is postponed to future updates in order to balance vehicle prior to its addition to the game.
