War Thunder 1.87: Challenger 2 and the introduction of Tier VII

Good day everyone, some big WT news today: Tier VII is coming to War Thunder Ground Forces and the vanguard of this news is the British Challenger 2 MBT. For the Challenger 2, we are told to expect a vehicle similar to the Challenger 1 but with much-upgraded armour and armament. The armament consists of an L30 120mm cannon armed with improved ammunition compared to the L11 and the armour focuses on the turret which receives a decent level of protection: up to 500mm for kinetic and 900mm for HEAT. It should be noted however that the lower glacis remains a glaring weak spot for the tank, relegating it to second-line duties similar to the Challenger 1.
