  1. The micropatch that hit today has some information in it regarding a new challenge to earn the TS-5 for free. The TS-5 is the non-turreted Premium tier VIII tank destroyer for the US. There is a thread about the TS-5 here. The event will run from April 5 - 15. *Below is the official release from WoT with all the details about the event and the tank. https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/announcements/american-challenge/ https://thedailybounce.net/world-of-tanks/micropatch-secrets-space-crew-skins-possible-marathon/ The patch also includes a few new crew skins. Details about the crew members can also be found at the link above. *Updated to include the NA WoT article about the event.
  2. Time to start saving up that Free XP for the new Swedish MT branch. It's confirmed to start at the Leo. The MT's have a slightly different siege mode than the TD's. They call it "hydropneumatic suspension". It turns on automatically when the speed drops to <10 km/h. You don't have to click a key/button to engage or disengage it. The mode does not give any other advantages other than additional hull inclination angles. So there are no changes to the aim, aim time or reload speeds. Once you start driving >20 km/h, it cancels the mode. The guns are not fixed to the hull like the TD's either. They have extra gun elevation and depression. This allows some amazing gun depression. They also have traversable turrets.
  3. We're getting the opportunity to earn the Panhard EBR 75 FL 10 for free. As per usual, free is debatable depending on how you value your free time... All the details at the link & video below. https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/announcements/challenge-wheeled-vehicles-announcement/ Complete each stage by finishing either the Commitment or Mastery mission. The missions:
  4. All the details at the link below. Basically a faster T28 that looks like an E3. Not sure how the DPM compares, but this one is sitting at +2,800 DPM before equipment and skills. It will easily go over 3k. The premium round pen is quite good too at 300mm. https://thedailybounce.net/world-of-tanks/supertest-ts-5-american-tank-destroyer/
  5. So a new tier VIII Premium Soviet TD entered Supertest. It's basically the Russian version of the Skorpion G. It has higher Alpha, similar pen, better camo and worse aim. Most importantly, it has a turret! The article from The Daily Bounce is below. World of Tanks Supertest: SU-130PM Soviet Tank Destroyer Today Wargaming is starting the closed test of a new Soviet Tier VIII Premium tank destroyer SU-130PM. An unhistorical vehicle based on the SU-100P light tank destroyer prototype. A fully operational SU-100P unit passed the trials and was greenlit for service, but it never entered mass production. Two other versions were tested, SU-152P with a 152mm anti-tank gun and a self-propelled version also with a 152mm gun denominated SU-152G. The surviving vehicles can be seen in Kubinka Tank Museum. The main difference between the game version and the completed prototype is the armament: in-game it boasts a more powerful 130mm cannon. Gameplay-wise, the SU-130PM is a compact vehicle with decent mobility, great camo and a hard-hitting gun with an alpha of 520 and a penetration of 243 mm with a standard round. You can hardly call this gun a sniper as its base accuracy is 0.35, but it still allows you to be effective at almost any distance. The SU-130PM is agile enough to benefit from switching flanks and firing positions. Its top speed is 65 km/h but it’s attainable after a period of time and on terrain with good traction—off-road it doesn’t perform so well. The cruising speed of the SU-130PM is between 45–55 km/h. The SU-130PM is very scantily armoured, has a small HP pool of 1100 points and a limited horizontal firing arc of 155 degrees. To survive in battle, you’ll need to rely on camouflage and using your mobility wisely. In resume, the SU-130P will be the Soviet version of the already in-game Skorpion G, but with better camouflage values. Last but not least, you should note this will be the first turreted Soviet tank destroyer, possibly opening the doors to the introduction of a new branch of Soviet turreted tank destroyers. Until we can confirm this, we will have to wait and see what will turn out of this vehicle.
  6. The details of a new tier VIII Swedish MT have now surfaced. Following the normal trend for WG lately, it's safe to assume that this will lead to a new tier X line that is yet to be officially announced. Currently, the tier VII is where the Swedish MT's end in the Tech Tree and the HT's start at tier VIII. If you're keeping track, this will be the 1st non Premium tier VIII MT for the Swedes (the Primo Victoria being the Premium). This new one however, follows the other Swedish tanks with higher alpha and better power to weight ratio. It will have a much softer turret like the Leo before it compared to the great turret of the Primo Victoria. Like the rest of the Swedes, it will have great gun depression angles with very little being visible when poking ridge lines. It certainly has a look of a mix between the tier VII Leo and the tier VIII Czech TVP VTU. I really enjoyed the Leo and absolutely hated the TVP VTU. You can read more details about the tank at the link below. https://thedailybounce.net/world-of-tanks/supertest-lansen-c-swedish-tier-viii-medium/
  7. The Pre-Sale for the new Tier VIII Premium Russian Light Tank, the LT-432, has finally come. If you have a Premium account, you can buy it now. Otherwise, you'll have to wait an entire 4 days (the 13th) to grab one if you're interested. As always, it comes in various bundle offers. LT-432: War Chest - $77.99 ($98.27 CDN) LT-432: Ultimate - $46.99 ($59.21 CDN) LT-432: Loaded - $37.99 ($47.87 CDN) LT-432: Base - $30.99 ($39.05 CDN) Alternatively, you can buy a bundle called Light Might with 4 tier VIII Premium LT's (LT-432, ELC EVEN 90, leKpz M 41 90 mm & T92) for $94.99 ($119.69 CDN). If you're curious if the LT-432 is for you or not, check out QB's video preview of the tank below. Also, a video from Dez below.
  8. Grand Battles are available to tier VIII tanks starting today and running until the 20th. You need to ensure that Grand Battles are checked in your settings to get into them. WG wants to know how people like/dislike the GB at tier VIII and are encouraging people to voice their opinions & concerns in the forums. They note that arty will be limited to 3 per team and that no Bonds will be awarded during this test phase. Personally, I wouldn't mind these battles from time to time as it guarantees that you're playing as top tier. I'm also curious to see how much credits could be earned with so much HP/XP potential in a match.
  9. World of Tanks Supertest: Object 432 BY HARKONNEN We can’t deny that Russia has indeed too many tanks that can be added to the game, because of this Wargaming continues to introduce new tanks to Supertest to choose possible suitable vehicles. A new Premium light tank that plays like the top vehicle of the Soviet light tank branch: low silhouette, great camo and an impressive gun for a light tank. Please welcome Object 432 to the Supertest! This vehicle is different from its Tier VIII counterpart, the LTTB, because it combines the ability to spot and deal damage at the same time. The initial test will have an LTTB modified 85-mm gun with better stats, but a second test will be done with an impressive 100-mm gun. The final vehicle will depend on tests results! All this seems quite nice, a tank that will fit a similar gameplay to the T-100 is quite a find, or is it? For those who don’t know Object432, let me use it’s more common name: T-64 MBT. Wargaming found a way to introduce a 1967 Main Battle Tank to the game by changing some characteristics and re-class it as a light tank! What do you think? Yay or Nay?

  11. Similar to the Italian Marathon, there will be another marathon coming for 2 weeks in Sept where you can earn the new Premium Tier VIII British Heavy Tank (and/or possibly earn a discount towards it). WG mention in a previous video that the missions would be easier this time than they were for the Italian Marathon. More details will be coming in another video and article in the near future. Once I have that info, I'll be posting it here.
  12. World of Tanks Supertest: IS-3A Inverse Auto-Reloader By: HARKONNEN With the introduction of Italian tanks, Wargaming also introduced a brand new mechanism: auto-reloading. The Soviet IS-3A was supposed to have a similar mechanism installed into it, eliminating the need of a loader, but it was never implemented and the tank itself is just a worse IS-3 with three crew members. Wargaming has now decided to bring this tank to Supertest to test yet another new mechanism: inverted auto-reloading. You might be asking what is the “inverted” and it’s quite easy to explain. While the Italian top Tier tanks have an auto-reloading that decreases the reload time you load one round into the mechanism, with the Soviet inverted system is just the opposite, it takes longer to reload one the more rounds you have in the mechanism. Keeping it simple, the first reload takes less time than the last one. The idea is to create a heavy tank that favours pronounced attack, able to conserve firepower when the battle slows down or while its changing positions, dealing about 1,000 burst damage when in combat and keep fighting with just one round. No further details were given if the current IS-3A in-game will get this feature if successfully tested, but the main objective is to test a new gameplay concept for an auto-reloader heavy tank that isn’t an IS-3 variant. In my personal opinion, we might see this new mechanism introduced to the Soviet heavy tank ST-II as I had some tips about this. Only time will tell if we will get the inverted auto-reloading mechanism added to game or not.
