  1. “Pz.Kpfw. III Ausf. E” it’s now called, but the suspension is nonetheless wrong now… since it’s still using the Panzer III Ausf. A’s suspension. Well, we’ll see if it will get the Ausf. E suspension then, if the name changed…

  2. 1) All those shiny premiums in HD. Gotta sealclub in HD. :3

    2) About HD Matilda.. Since the regular’s front armor got nerf’d when going to HD (I think), will the premiums receive any compensation? (Like.. a gun for the Mat IV?)

    3) I bet WG will overbuff the 112 armor like mad. And since it disappeared from the shop while becoming playable, they will sell it to players in bundles.
    HD JT8.8, anyone?

    4) Maybe they plan to give the KV-220 Beta its historical turret armor😛

    1. jagdtiger 88 in sd was one of worse tier 8 prems in the game but it hd if leap frogged everything and now the only tank i would that can easily beat a jagdtiger 88 in its hd form is the is6. that when it was turned to hd went from being a tough but not impenetrable in sd to being totally impenetrable for guns with less than 210 pen. you could say it was a nerf because now its a prem ammo magnet but holy crap that things buff was near the same level as the t110e5s buff.


    1. Because all unremoved tanks will get a HD model.

      And not yet because WG doesn’t make the models and the companies contracted for the job aren’t necessarily manned by WOT-afficionados, the models come at seemingly random order.


    1. What makes even more sense is that WG doesn’t pick the models. They are produced by unaffiliated 3D-modeling companies contracted by WG, and I doubt the companies really care what specific tanks they are working on and what is their status in WOT.
