Wheeled Vehicles Roll Out!

In pondering the future of World of Tanks, we decided to take a closer look at the so-called military armored cars, lightweight wheeled tanks historically employed for reconnaissance, armed escort, and other battlefield tasks. So we figured that it would be nice to refresh our game and add something really special to it.

Wheeled vehicles are one of the hottest topics in World of Tanks, and some of you still have strong opinions about their introduction. Well, in December last year, some contributors along with other players assisted us in testing the EBR 75 FL 10, a Premium Tier VIII light tank in active combat conditions, on the “live” server. With the upcoming Common Test, the opportunity to playtest wheeled vehicles is available to everyone.

The French wheeled vehicles have new mechanics, previously unavailable in World of Tanks. These mechanics are the key features of all armored cars and make them truly outstanding. All military wheeled vehicles have historical origins. Some of them were mass-produced and even saw service.

This is a well-protected machine designed for close quarters combat. And we mean it, it’s very, very well-protected—the frontal armor of the hull hits 260 millimeters! The weapon is fast-firing and hard-hitting—the DPM is more than 2800 hit points, with single-shot damage of 400 HP and basic shell penetration of 248 mm. As for the mobility, it’s the norm for a heavy machine with a max speed of 26 km/h.

The precision and speed of the shells do limit the effectiveness of the TS-5 over long distances, but it’s not terrible and, if needed, this American can get up close to deal with opponents. After all, this is a hard-shelled tank destroyer, which will feel right at home in defending a line of attack during the battle. It can also help bring out those “entrenched” enemies from their safe positions. Moreover, it can shake off shells from higher tiered opponents when played effectively, especially if you can hide the lower frontal plate, which is its biggest weak spot.
