World of Tanks 1.6.1 – Patchnotes

Main Changes

Multinational Vehicles

  • Now players can change the nation of some Premium vehicles. First of all, we are talking about the well-known captured vehicles, vehicles supplied under Lend-Lease, and representatives of historical and cultural heritage, such as the Polish T-34-85 Rudy.
  • This feature will allow players to complete missions that have national restrictions. Upon changing the vehicle’s nation, it becomes possible to use the crews, equipment, and consumables of the corresponding nation. A player’s configuration of the vehicle for another nation (crew, mounted equipment) can be saved, and the operation of switching between nations is free for players. The legendary T-34-85 Rudy will become the first multinational vehicle. Its nation can be switched between the Soviet Union and Poland. The Polish version will have a crew of four unique Polish tankers with 100% trained Brothers in Arms perk and a German shepherd. Players who have this Premium vehicle in the Garage, will receive the Polish crew as a gift, and the feature of changing the nation will become available.
