Good day everyone,
Few things from the upcoming supertest session for 9.17.1, so we’ll cover tank and tech tree changes here first.
Tech Tree Changes
First off, the German tree will be seeing some restructuring with its high tier heavies. VK.45.02 A and B are now leading up to the new(ish) Tier 10 heavy, VK.72.01(K). The Maus line will see the addition of the VK.100.1 P and the Mauschen at Tier 8 and 9 respectivly.
Not as drastic as the German tree changes, the Japanese and US tech tree vehicles are getting some attention as well. US superheavy TDs (T28 Proto, T28, T95) will recieve as peed boost to bring them into the more dynamic combat of todays game.
The Japanese high tier heavies will now recieve new gun options and high-explosive shells, making them a bit more of a natural progression from their lower tier counterparts.
