Quick bit of news, some users over at Reddit have found the following in the 9.18 test server.
First up is a Grand Finals edition of the Chrysler K heavy tank. Apparently completely replacing the original in the game files.
The premium Shermsn, Thunderbolt VII, has been stripped of its paint scheme.
The premium Lorraine 40t is getting a magazine reload nerf, from 34.52 seconds to 35.24.
And good news for Swedish fans, the Swedish Centurion recieved a massive buff to its engine, from 650hp to 900hp, bringing horsepower-to-ton ration to 17.72hp/t.
Thats it for now, folks.

6650hp to 900hp. Sounds like a big nerf 😛
Wonder what it’s hp per ton was before…
12.7977777778 if my calculations are right
Looks like it originally had 20 hp/t.
Oops. Forgive lads, I’m working with a massive caffiene defeciency 😛
My first thought on the Chrystler K GF: if this is the Grand finals tank what will happen to T92 light tank? Is there any hope it will go to the tech tree?
It may be sold as a premium regardless. Currently the T71is the tier 7 LT for both light tank ‘branches’ AFAIK. (Technically the second LT branch is only like three vehicles, and only because M7 is now an LT as well)
FFS when will the USA ever get the T92 Lt or the T71 CMD? We need a decent crew grinder not another BS HT.
“The premium Lorraine 40t is getting a magazine reload nerf, from 34.52 seconds to 35.24.”
Yeah, that makes it way more balanced now. Well done, WG.
Chrysler K… better then another tier 8 Soviet I guess… would be nice if we could have a tier 8 US TD… or Britsh HT… or even a British TD
Not overly interested in the Sherman Thunderbolt, Talk to me when the AC3 Thunderbolt is coming
Lorrain… here’s hoping it ends up good
Still fail to see the need of a Centurian clone for the Swedish line. Would rather historical stats for the Swedish HT and then the historical Emil 1 as a premium
It would be absolutely absurd to introduce the Strv 81 with those stats, it’s faster and has almost twice the turret armor. This to me means 2 things – either it’s just a test for them to see what happens during supertest or British tanks are about to get some massive buffs.
Yeah, because all of the latest premiums are perfectly balanced and definitely not stronger than regular tanks.
It would be too dumb. While patriot is objectively better than t32, you can’t say it’s better in every aspect, same with KT/Liberte, and defender/skorpion are both situational. But it would be flat out better in EVERY single way Cent 1, they can’t afford such a move.
Aww, they promo’d the Chrysler K…then again, it was scared to high hell the other day…must’ve been a Ford. 😛
Jokes aside, I’m sure the Chrysler GFK will be fine. And by the sounds of the Thunderbolt VII, it might be offered as two different options like the T26E5, AMX M4 49, and Object 252? That’d be nice.
Ugh, the Chrysler K was one of the only vehicles that I was looking forward to, and they’ve gone to the trouble of effing it up with a modeled logo. Oh well, that’s $50 that I can put towards something else I guess.
At least the only one truly effed up will forever be the AMX 13 57…and even that isn’t a terrible eye sore…just wish I could camo it. Kind of like overwriting camo values, y’know?
Seriously, what the point of Abram’s Thunderbolt without the paintjob?
GDI WG, you got one job.
Thunderbolt seems really decent. Tier 6 super pershing with lower armor and actual mobility 😀
Darn, was thinking of picking up a Chrysler K when it eventually comes out. Definitely not interested if it looks like that in the premium shop.
Still interested in the Strv 81, looks like I don’t even need to grind myself a Centurion 1 now.
