Global Map: Future Event Info

More information has been revealed about the upcoming Global Map event:

„Hello Commanders,

We plan for the Winter Global Map Event to start in the second week of February. It’s time to gather your clan members and get ready for this big event! Good luck to everyone involved.”

There are many questions about whether the T95 / FV4201 Chieftain will be the reward vehicle for the upcoming Campaign and when the official announcement will be made. Since the campaign is planned for February 7, we should see the official article on January 24.

It is also worth adding that yesterday, by mistake, information about the event on the Global Map was made available on the Chinese game client, and with it the likely list of reward vehicles on which the said Chieftain was found. Do we have any reason to believe that the tank will also arrive to us?

The Chinese server has always had its own rules, but for some time you can observe that it is somehow “matched” to the other servers. The events appearing there are standardized in relation to other regions, and therefore it can be assumed that the reward tanks listed in the screenshot above will be the same for everyone.

Supertest: Object 259a (Initial Stats)

The Object 259a, a Soviet Tier VIII heavy tank, is coming to the closed Supertest.

The Object 259a has a characteristic feature typical of all IS-7 prototypes—a pike nose. Its frontal hull armour reaches 110 mm. The tank’s turret is streamlined, cast, with frontal armour of 260 mm. The vehicle has 1,450 hit points. Maximum speed—60 km/h, specific power—15 h.p./t, view range—380 m.

The tank is armed with a 122 mm gun with an average damage per shot of 420 hit points. The standard APCR shell penetrates 233 mm of armour, while the special HEAT shell penetrates 285 mm. The aiming time of the gun is 3.2 s, reload time is 15 s, and dispersion is 0.42 m.

The Object 259a is a frontline heavy tank. Thanks to its good armour and relatively good manoeuvrability, the vehicle can occupy advantageous positions and engage in successful positional combat.

Also, keep in mind that the gun’s accuracy won’t let you fire effectively from long range.

Additional Statistics

Dispersion during turret rotation – 0.12
Gun dispersion during hull movement – 0.24
Gun dispersion during hull traverse – 0.24
Dispersion after shot – 4
Shell Velocity – 1400/820/790
