In terms of their actual characteristics, the XCenturion Action X and the XRheinmetall Panzerwagen are not very competitive in Random Battles. They do not perform as well as their same-tier opponents and therefore are not popular. We want to enhance their combat advantages without changing their gameplay conception and key features. Both tanks will receive improvements in firepower and shooting comfort.
Centurion Action X
This tank will receive improvements to reload time (8 s instead of 8.6 s) and dispersion during movement, as well as on hull and turret traverse. Plus, its forward speed will be slightly increased from 53 km/h to 55 km/h.
Its reload and aiming times will be reduced from 9 s to 8 s and from 1.6 s to 1.4 s, respectively. We will also improve the dispersion at 100 m from 0.36 m to 0.33 m, as well as during movement and on hull and turret traverse.
The XT57 Heavy Tank and the XRinoceronte can compete on equal footing with other heavy tanks, but their performance can be even better. These tanks will receive slight improvements to make them feel even more confident in battle.
The reverse speed will be increased from 12 km/h to 14 km/h, and the aiming time will be improved from 2.9 s to 2.7 s. We will also slightly reduce its dispersion during movement and on hull traverse.
The reverse speed will be increased from 12 km/h to 15 km/h. We will also strengthen its turret armor and increase the velocity of the special HEAT shell.
Improvements to Individual Tier VI and VII Vehicles
The next batch of medium Tier VI and VII vehicles with insufficient performance also requires some updates to their characteristics. Over time, their popularity in Random Battles has decreased even more, so we want to revive your interest in these vehicles by making them more competitive and effective on the battlefield.
List of Tier VI and VII Vehicles to be Rebalanced
These vehicles will receive a series of various tweaks aimed at improving shooting comfort, mobility, or survivability. We will reveal more detailed technical characteristics in a dedicated article at a later date, so stay tuned!
Changes to the Progetto M40 mod. 65, the T110E3, the AMX M4 mle. 54, and Surrounding Vehicles
All three of these top-tier vehicles feature decent combat advantages and don’t have significant drawbacks. They offer very high battle performance and stand out in their classes and tiers. These vehicles are very popular both in Random Battles and Onslaught, and they may sometimes frustrate other commanders playing in same-tier tanks.
To adjust their performance, we want to reduce some of their combat parameters. However, they are still very dangerous opponents with decent performance—don’t expect them to become easy prey in battle.
Progetto M40 mod. 65
The reverse speed will be reduced from 23 km/h to 20 km/h. We will also make the upper glacis plate of the XProgetto M40 mod. 65 less durable and increase dispersion during movement and on hull traverse.
We will decrease the view range, HP pool, and increase the reload and aiming times of the XT110E3 .
AMX M4 mle. 54
During the previous series of rebalancing changes, this brawler received an over-buff in performance characteristics, which made it slightly superior to same-tier heavy tanks, and it was too popular in Random Battles and Onslaught. Changes to the XAMX M4 mle. 54 affect its 130 mm/45 Model 1935 gun dispersion, reload time, and aiming time.
