A new branch of British wheeled medium tanks is being prepared for release by the WoT team.

The game concept of the new branch: Lightly armored mobile wheeled medium tanks with a large Silhouette. The wheeled suspension ensures excellent dynamics.  To ensure the highest level of mobility, the hulls of these vehicles have been made lighter, and they basically carry no armor. However, they will be equipped with guns that boast great gun handling and damage per shot parameters, as well as decent dispersion and aiming time values.

The first representative of the new vehicle branch coming to the Supertest will be the GSOR 1010 FB, a Premium vehicle. This tank possesses all the main features of the upcoming British branch: good gun handling parameters, excellent mobility, and the new wheeled suspension.

The vehicle is equipped with a 105 mm gun that fires every 12.2 s. The penetration value of the standard shell is 218 mm, while the special shell penetrates 252 mm. Both cause 360 HP of damage. The gun dispersion is 0.33 m, and the aiming time is 2.1 s.

The frontal protection of the vehicle’s armor reaches 18 mm. The vehicle’s top speed is 60 km/h, while its specific power is 23.7 h.p./t. The tank’s durability is 1,300 HP, and its view range is 390 m.

Features of wheeled medium tanks

The new wheeled mediums combine the main features of both the French wheeled scouts and classic tracked vehicles.

The strong point of the new British mediums ensures their excellent dynamics and allows building up high forward and reverse speeds. This should help them take key positions on maps during the first stage of battle. In terms of mobility, these vehicles fall short of the wheeled scouts, so their Commanders will have to consider their escape routes in advance.

The design specifics of the wheel suspension for these medium tanks allow them to turn on the spot and to turn the hull at low speed. This is one of their main differences from the wheeled light tanks. However, the British mediums have significantly worse maneuverability than the French wheeled scouts at medium and high speeds. In other words, you will not be able to change movement direction quickly at high speed (as in the EBR). It will not take much time to get used to such behavior, though—many vehicles in the game behave the same, such as the Bat.-Châtillon 25 t. Also, control of these vehicles in close combat will be intuitively simple and won’t require additional skills (which are usually needed when playing wheeled vehicles).

Commanders of the new mediums should also consider their bigger dimensions and worse concealment compared to the wheeled light tanks. Although excellent mobility and a good view range may allow for active scouting in certain combat situations, the new medium tanks will not be able to play the role of full-fledged scouts.

  1. Sounds like a proper implementation of wheeled vehicles in the game.
    But we need camou + soft stats to know if this will be too strong

    1. Too strong lol
      They will be mediums in wheels. So big and slower with less camo. You’ll probably cry that they are trash

      1. hull traverse is 30º, right now Centurion I and Panther II are tied with the worse traverse at Tier 8 (free tanks only) at 37.55º with top speeds of 50 and 55 respectively
        it won’t outclass current mediums, unless it has light tank levels of concealment, and do not forget we will probably see autocanons from Tier 8 upwards this year, with 18mm of armor it will be obliterated in seconds

    2. By the look of it, unless this thing has 0.10/0.06 base gun stabilization and 30%+ camo, it will not be OP.
      If it gets 0.14/0.10 and ~28% camo when maxing out, it will be a strong and interesting MT to play and to play against.
      WG is delaying the garbage update, they are considering their options.
      Let’s hope they will not fck up this time.

  2. Conceptually, these machines were originally going to be TDs. Remains to be seen whether they actually work. Assuming I don’t shortly wash my hands of the game!

    1. actually this thing combines the GSOR 1010 A.V.R and the wheeled GSOR 1006, not really designed as TDs
      the first was planned with guns from 20mm to 76mm and the later had the 105mm gun (plus anti-tank guided missiles)
      the first time those were mentioned by WG staff (someone from WoT SA in a interview) they were described as «medium wheeled vehicles with big guns»

  3. Also, looks like the norm will be three-man crews; that’ll be brutal in the new regime, unless all crew wind up being double-hatted on it comes to specialties.

  4. The good = it looks like a fun and strong tank, looking forward to it.

    The bad = will be first distributed through loot crates.

      1. I will never understand why people use stats (often wrong or just made up, as is the case here) to insult other players. Grow up kid, you did not get disciplined enough.

  5. With these characteristics I’m sure WG will ‘balance’ it a bit (worse) to make sure yes, its British and yes, its weaker in one specific area to make sure it’s NEVER going to be a problem for gameplay read. go where WG wants you on their ‘designer’ Maps.

    Specific weak area = Low Shell Velocity at 850mts at best worst 750mts (WG remember the fun police

    like why?
    then Sniping in bush is pointless (even if its armor is zero and its camo is poor
    and! so up closer and yes brawling in a ‘paper Tank’ its guaranteed.

    WG like brawling it creates fast 4min turbos where ‘noobies’ last just the 1min

    1. british tanks are not bad in wot, they are pretty good, to name some: chieftain, conq, s.conq, cobra, cent ax, manti, cromwell, gsor td, taliban, tortois, badger… even tier by tier: matilda at2, at8. at7, at15, churchill’s are good
