During the first Common Test of Update 1.6.1 you take advantage of the new functionality of multinational vehicles. We’re also adding two new customization sets, containing unique historical looks for your vehicles. Finally, you have the opportunity to try out new Ranked Battles mechanics that will be implemented in the next Season. Hop on board and give us your feedback—your input is crucial as we continue evolving these features!

Multinational Vehicles

If you are interested in tanks, you’re probably aware of the unusual history of the fabulous T-34-85 Rudy. In our game, it fights in the ranks of the Soviet Union, but during World War II, this tank was at the disposal of the Polish units fighting in the Red Army. The T-34-85 Rudy was widely known thanks to the TV show “Four Tank-men and a Dog,” and made a significant contribution to Polish culture.

In Update 1.6.1, you can take advantage of the remarkable functionality of multinational vehicles. The first multinational tank will be the legendary T-34-85 Rudy. We’ll credit this tank to all players participating in the testing, so you can try out this new functionality during the Common Test.

 

Technically, it would be the same tank, with identical battle characteristics, but belonging to a different nation (Poland or the Soviet Union). You can instantly switch between them at any time in your Garage. You will only need to move the Polish crew to it, load ammo and mount additional equipment, if necessary.

You cannot switch to an alternative version of the tank during battle. The choice of nation is only available in the Garage, before you roll out. Your configuration of the tank for another nation (crew, mounted equipment) can be saved.

This feature offers interesting opportunities, allowing you to boost crews from different nations and complete battle missions available for each nation with the same tank.

We really want to hear your feedback on multinational vehicles. If you like it, we’ll consider the possibility of introducing other multinational tanks in the future.

New Styles

You can never have too many unique custom looks! Together with Update 1.6.1, we’re adding two new customization sets, containing:

  • A unique historical 2D style for each nation. It will be available for gold in your game client, for all vehicle types.
  • A unified historical 2D “Jaeger” style for all nations, also available for gold, for all vehicle types.

We are continuing our consistent work on customization and development of new styles to make your vehicles even more refined, so stay tuned!

Main Changes

Multinational Vehicles

  • Now players can change the nation of some Premium vehicles. First of all, we are talking about the well-known captured vehicles, vehicles supplied under Lend-Lease, and representatives of historical and cultural heritage, such as the Polish T-34-85 Rudy.
  • This feature will allow players to complete missions that have national restrictions. Upon changing the vehicle’s nation, it becomes possible to use the crews, equipment, and consumables of the corresponding nation. A player’s configuration of the vehicle for another nation (crew, mounted equipment) can be saved, and the operation of switching between nations is free for players. The legendary T-34-85 Rudy will become the first multinational vehicle. Its nation can be switched between the Soviet Union and Poland. The Polish version will have a crew of four unique Polish tankers with 100% trained Brothers in Arms perk and a German shepherd. Players who have this Premium vehicle in the Garage, will receive the Polish crew as a gift, and the feature of changing the nation will become available.
