Supertest - New Motion Physics

Hello warriors,

it is possible another "new physics" general test is near since a new motion physics version just entered supertest.

From its patchnotes:

- 180 degree "U-turns" possible
- tanks traverse faster if you aren't holding the "W" button
- new terrain resistance system
- it's possible now to fire under your maximum depression angle by making the tank "rock" from forward to backward and by firing at the lowest point (a complicated maneuver)
- tanks can now drift while holding S, pressing space and turning at the same time
- it is possible to set the suspension stiffness to different levels
- it is possible to tip someone on their roof by ramming
- tanks can tip over on roof

T95/Chieftain Hybrid, British Tier 8 MT

Hello warriors,

here's another "event" vehicle, tier 8 MT Chieftain/T95 hybrid. And yes, this existed (at least on paper), such a proposal was actually made in real life. Basically a Chieftain hull, T95 turret and 90mm gun.



Description:

When developing the FV4201 Chieftain, it was proposed to make the armament interchangeable with the American T95 tank by implementing a turret from it on the Chieftain hull. The project did not continue due to the training requirements on the crew that would have to learn to operate two different gunnery systems.

Reminder: Jagdtiger 88 Removal

Hello warriors,

just a quick reminder: the Jagdtiger 88 (one of the best moneymakers in the game) will be removed from the ingame shop in 9.10 (which will come soon) - after that it will be only available in the premium shop for like 36 EUR for two more weeks.

It is being removed due to the fact it has premium matchmaking - its replacement in the shop will be the Kanonenjagdpanzer.
