WoT RU: Vehicle Changes in Update 1.26

List of affected tanks: AMX 50 FOCH B, AMX 50 FOCH (155), AMX 50 FOCH, AMX AC MLE. 48, AMX 50 B, AMX 50 120, AMX 50 100, AMX 65T, AMX M4 MLE. 49, PZ.KPFW. VII, VK 45.02 B, VK 45.02 A, PANTHER 8.8, CHIEFTAIN/T95, FV 4202, T95E2

Work on rebalancing continues. We are reviewing the technical characteristics of various groups of tanks to ensure that all vehicles become in demand and effective on the battlefield.

Update 1.26 will be no exception. The characteristics of tanks from various branches will be adjusted.

FRENCH TANKS

Tier X AMX 50 FOCH B

Was It became
Maximum reverse speed 13 km/h 18 km/h
Saurer 1000 engine power 1000 hp 1120 hp

Maximum reverse speed 13 km/h 18 km/h
The dispersion of the gun due to the movement of the AMX 50 Foch (155) chassis has been reduced by 20%.
The dispersion of the gun due to rotation of the AMX 50 Foch (155) chassis has been reduced by 20%.

Tier IX AMX 50 FOCH

Was It became
Maximum reverse speed 13 km/h 18 km/h

Tier VIII AMX AC MLE. 48

Was It became
Accuracy at 100m of 120 mm AC SA46 gun 0.37 0.35
Reload time for 120 mm AC SA46 gun 34 sec 30 sec
Maximum reverse speed 13 km/h 18 km/h
Strength 1150 HP 1250 HP
For the 90 mm AC DCA 45 gun, a drum for 6 shells has been added. Reload time for a full drum is 36 sec. Reloading shells inside the drum is 2.3 seconds. The total number of shells is 84 pcs.
For the 100 mm AC SA47 gun, a drum for 4 shells has been added. Reload time for a full drum is 34 seconds. Reloading shells inside the drum is 2.5 seconds.

To make this branch of tanks relevant again and bring back interest in it, we decided to change some vehicle parameters.

In particular, improving the characteristics of the gun (dispersion, reload time) will increase the firepower of the vehicles. Increasing the reverse speed and maximum durability of some tanks will increase their survivability in battle. The AMX Foch B tank will have its engine power increased for the same purpose.

Changed role from universal to assault.

Pz.Kpfw. VII,  the armor of the gun mantlet and turret ring in the frontal projection will be changed.

The VK 45.02 (P) A  will also have a strengthened gun mantlet and all-round armor for both the hull and both turrets.

Pz.Kpfw. VII, Pz.Kpfw. VII 7×7, VK 45.02 B.  Currently, these vehicles are not in enough demand in the game. To increase their attractiveness, some parameters have been changed:

  • Pz.Kpfw. VII, Pz.Kpfw. VII 7×7  –  reload time, information, and reservations.
  • The  VK 45.02 B   has reload and aiming times, and vertical aiming angles.

VK 45.02 A  The vehicle did not fit into the concept of a branch of heavily armored assault heavy tanks and was not effective enough in battle. As part of update 1.26, it will be changed in accordance with the concept of the branch: the role of the tank will change, armor will be strengthened, mobility and other characteristics will be reduced.

Tier VIII PANTHER MIT 8.8CM L/71

Was It became
Accuracy at 100m of the 8.8 cm Kw.K. 43 L/71 mod.Vlt in Panther turret mit 8.8 cm Kw.K. 43L/71 0.32 m 0.29 m
Gun aiming time 8.8 cm Kw.K. 43 L/71 mod.Vlt for Panther turret mit 8,8 cm Kw.K. 43L/71 2.5 sec 2.2 sec
Armor penetration of the Pzgr 39/1 L projectile for the 8.8 cm Kw.K gun. 43 L/71 mod.Vlt 203 mm 223 mm
Armor penetration of the Pzgr 40 L1 projectile for the 8.8 cm Kw.K. 43 L/71 mod.Vlt 237 mm 261 mm
Maximum forward speed 46 km/h 50 km/h
Dispersion of the gun due to the movement of the chassis Panther mit 8.8 cm Kw.K. 43 L/71 reduced by 12%.
Dispersion of the gun due to rotation of the chassis Panther mit 8.8 cm Kw.K. 43 L/71 reduced by 12%.
Gun dispersion 8.8 cm Kw.K. 43 L/71 mod. Vlt when turning the Panther turret mit 8.8 cm Kw.K. 43 L/71 reduced by 14%.

Compared to vehicles of the same class, the tank is not effective enough in combat and is irrelevant.

To solve the problem, a number of equipment parameters will be improved: stabilization, accuracy and armor penetration of basic and special ammunition.

In addition, in order to achieve high levels of mobility, allowing you to quickly occupy key positions, the maximum forward speed will be improved.

BRITISH TANKS

Tier VIII CHIEFTAIN/T95

Was It became
Maximum forward speed 42 km/h 45 km/h
Maximum reverse speed 15 km/h 18 km/h
The AP M318 armor-piercing projectile has been replaced by the APFSDS T320 sub-caliber projectile.
Added a new HEAT M318 HEAT projectile.
Armor penetration of the HEAT M318 projectile for the 90 mm Gun T208 (rifled) 270 mm (special).
Armor penetration of the APFSDS T320 projectile for the 90 mm Gun T208 (rifled) 238 mm (base).

Tier VIII FV 4202

Was It became
Traverse speed of chassis FV4202 40 deg/sec. 50 deg/sec.
Reload time for the OQF 20-pdr Gun Type B Barrel gun for the FV4202 turret 7.5 sec. 6.9 sec.
Aiming time for the OQF 20-pdr Gun Type B Barrel gun for the FV4202 turret 2.3 sec. 1.9 sec
Turret traverse speed FV4202 36 deg/sec 48 deg/sec
Rolls-Royce Meteorite 202B engine power 650 hp 800 hp
The dispersion of the gun due to the movement of the FV4202 chassis has been reduced by 14%.
The dispersion of the gun due to rotation of the FV4202 chassis has been reduced by 14%.
The dispersion of the OQF 20-pdr Gun Type B Barrel gun when rotating the FV4202 turret has been reduced by 25%.

The Chieftain T/95  in current realities has insufficient armor penetration, which does not allow it to effectively counteract other equipment. In addition, the maximum speed of the vehicle is not sufficient to solve the problems of a universal medium tank. Improving fire and dynamic performance will make the equipment more efficient and comfortable on the battlefield.

The FV 4202  does not stand out for its performance characteristics in comparison with other tanks of the same role. Changing the reload and aiming time, turret traverse speed and engine power will make the tank more interesting and comfortable.

AMERICAN TANKS

Tier VIII T95E2

Was It became
Reload time for the 90 mm Gun M41E1 gun for the T95E2 turret. 7.5 sec. 7 sec.
Armor penetration of the AP M318 projectile of the 90 mm Gun M41E1 gun 190 mm 212 mm
Armor penetration of the HEAT-T M348 projectile for the 90 mm Gun M41E1 gun 250 mm 265 mm
Engine power Continental AOI-1195-5 560 hp 630 hp
The dispersion of the gun due to the movement of the T95E2 chassis has been reduced by 14%.
The dispersion of the gun due to rotation of the T95E2 chassis has been reduced by 14%.
The gun mantlet armor will also be changed:

Insufficient firepower, low mobility and a vulnerable zone in the gun mantlet do not allow the vehicle to compete with enemy medium tanks.

Improving the armor of the gun mantlet, as well as changing a number of other parameters (reload time, armor penetration, stabilization, engine power) will make it easier to play on this vehicle and make it more competitive.

5 thoughts on “WoT RU: Vehicle Changes in Update 1.26

  1. Despite all the hate, WoT RU is doing better and better!
    Those buffs to AMX 50 120 are extremely juicy! I still remember that horrible intra-clip reload combined with trollish gun while I was three-marking it… Despite a fairly old classic HT, downing it to 2,73 s, along with other buffs, does put a spotlight on it! Sadly, WoT Eu is busy with other stuff…

  2. I wish WoT EU would just adapt these changes, they seem well thought through an reliable too…

  3. Yeah if only EU would do these changes, or ANY CHANGES AT ALL i would maybe/possibly consider coming back….

  4. RU server might be not that good after what just happened, but still at least their buff of tanks and making them relevant again in todays meta just miles better than WG EU.

    Just look at the PZ7 buffs on RU and compare it to EU.
    While this wont make the PZ 7 op, but still makes the armor more reliable and you wont feel like butter on the shoulders… Meanwhile what EU gets is a small mantlet buff lmfao.

  5. Also, remember the buffs on Concept 5? It now has 75 km/h base top speed and proper camo, which propelled it from being a complete trash to being a valid choice in Clan Wars/Onslaught! In the meantime, this thing is still getting wrecked every single battle in WoT EU/NA
