German and Chinese Medium Tanks Balancing

We are continuing our rebalancing of high-tier vehicles.Now it’s time for the German and Chinese medium tanks.

Of the two German Tier X MTs, the E-50M is the more protected and durable one. Due to its frontal armor, the vehicle is somewhat like a heavy tank. Nevertheless, the thickness of the turret’s frontal armor plate is insufficient to repel shots from high-tier opponents. We plan on improving the protection of this area by increasing the thickness of the turret’s effective armor from 197 to 266 mm.

Other vehicles of the branch will be improved as well:

  • E50:

Increased the effective armor of the turret’s frontal armor plate from 197 to 220 mm

10,5 cm Kw.K. L/52 Ausf. gun

Increased the penetration value of a standard shell from 220 to 230 mm

8,8 cm Kw.K. L/100 gun

Increased the damage value from 240 to 280 HP

  • Panther II: 

8,8 cm Kw.K. L/100 gun

Increased the damage value from 240 to 280 HP

  • Panther 8.8: 

Increased the damage value from 240 to 280 HP

The Chinese medium tank branch will receive a wide array of improvements to a number of technical characteristics affecting both survivability and firepower. These changes should make these vehicles more competitive compared to other, newer tanks.

Increased vehicle durability from 1,050 to 1,150 HP .

Note that these technical characteristics are not final and can be changed. 

Finally we’re showing some care to the Soviet TierX Medium.

  • Obj 140

post-502699962-0-25459800-1596802176

The Object 140 is essentially a well-balanced vehicle, but it will also benefit from slight improvements in firing comfort and survivability. Its gun depression angles will be increased from -6 to -7 degrees, and the armor thickness of the frontal glacis plate will be increased to 260 mm instead of 237 mm. Thanks to these tweaks, the Object 140 will more confidently withstand attacks from other tier X vehicles and will perform more aggressively on the battlefield.

 

Note that these technical characteristics are not final and can be changed.

Rebalancing is an ongoing process and we will keep on reviewing our tanks and rebalance their performance.
Let us know what do you think of these changes in the comments below.
