With the advent of the M-V-Y branch and its reserve track mechanics, many players wondered about introducing similar mechanics for other tanks in the game.
There are several reserve-tracked tanks in the game:
- Object 279(e)
- AE Phase 1
- VK 168 01 (P) and Mauerbrecher
So at the moment, WG is prototyping mechanics for these tanks as well (not all of the tanks mentioned above may get it!). In fact, the mechanics will be completely similar to Yoh tanks: when several tracks are shot down, the tank will lose speed, but it will still be able to move on.
Regardless of the layout of the tracks, as in AE Phase I or Object 279(e), the mechanics will work the same way. They won’t bring anything special to the mechanics.
Additionally, it is planned to display a unique location of tracks for each of these tanks in the game interface at the bottom of the screen.
There is also a plan to release several new “premium”, high-tier tanks with these mechanics (at least 2).
If everything goes well, all this may appear in 2024 after the Japanese HTs and tanks with Autocannons.
