Sandbox Patch Notes 1.0.3 are out, I’m sorry for the delay getting this to you. Here they are:

Tanks

 The following vehicles were too effective in battle. Therefore, their characteristics were changed.

  •  T57 Heavy Tank:
    • Reload time of the 120 mm Gun T179 for the T169 turret changed from 28 s to 35 s.
    • Penetration of the AP-T M358 shell for the 120 mm Gun T179 changed from 290 mm to 270 mm.
    • Penetration of the HEAT-T M469 shell for the 120 mm Gun T179 changed from 315 mm to 300 mm.
  • AMX 50 Foch (155):
    • Dispersion on the move with the AMX 50 Foch (155) suspension increased by 25%.
    • Dispersion on hull traverse with the AMX 50 Foch (155) suspension increased by 25%.
    • Reload time of the 120 mm AC SA46 gun for the AMX 50 Foch (155) turret changed from 23 s to 30 s.

The following vehicles were too ineffective in battle. Therefore, their characteristics were changed.

  • AMX 50 B:
    • Traverse speed of the AMX 50 B suspension changed from 20 deg/s to 28 deg/s.
    • Traverse speed of the AMX 50 B turret changed from 24 deg/s to 28 deg/s.
  • Object 263:
    • Dispersion on the move with the Object 263 suspension decreased by 25%.
    • Dispersion on hull traverse with the Object 263 suspension decreased by 25%.
    • Aiming time of the 130 mm S-70A gun for the Object 263 turret changed from 2,5 s to 2,2 s.
    • Dispersion on barrel move of the 130 mm S-70A gun decreased by 50%.
  • FV215b (120):
    • Aiming time of the 120 mm Gun L1A1 for the FV215 turret changed from 2,5 s to 2 s.
    • Reload time of the 120 mm Gun L1A1 for the FV215 turret changed from 10,5 s. to 9 s.
    • Dispersion on turret traverse of the 120 mm Gun L1A1 decreased by 43%.
  • Bat.-Châtillon 25 t: in one of the previous iterations, we removed one shell from this vehicle’s magazine. This was connected with the fact that even considering the decrease in single-hit damage, the potential damage per magazine still remained high since the amount of HP of many other vehicles was reviewed. All further changes to this vehicle are conditioned by our searching for a new gameplay niche where this vehicle can be played most comfortably.
    • Aiming time of the 105 mm mle. 57 (D. 1504) for the Batignolles-Châtillon 25 t turret changed from 2,2 s to 1,9 s.
    • Rate of fire for shells in the magazine for the 105 mm mle. 57 (D. 1504) gun decreased by 9%.
    • Durability changed from 1,500 HP to 1,600 HP.
  • 113:
    • Improved armour protection of the lower hull.
  • T110E3:
    • Traverse speed of the T110E3 suspension changed from 16 deg/s to 22 deg/s.
    • Reload time of the 120mm AT Gun M58E1 for the T110E3 turret changed from 10,6 s to 9,3 s.
  • T-54 ltwt: Because the vehicle’s hull traverse speed in version 1.0.2 hindered the vehicle’s controllability and caused skidding, we made controlling the vehicle at high speed more comfortable.
    • Traverse speed of the T-54 ltwt. version suspension changed from 78 deg/s to 70 deg/s.
    • Traverse speed of the T-54 enhanced ltwt. version suspension changed from 78 deg/s to 70 deg/s.

Artillery:

  • Artillery stun comprises two components: base stun duration, which depends on shell characteristics, and additional stun time, which depends on damage caused. We have changed the mechanics of the base stun duration — it has increased slightly, while the additional stun time slightly decreased. Now, stun depends more on shell characteristics and became a little more predictable.
  • Negative effect of stun on turret traverse speed and aiming time slightly increased.
  • If stun’s duration is fewer than 3 seconds, it is not applied to the vehicle.

The Conqueror Gun Carriage was similar to the T92 in battle in terms of its behavior. To accentuate the difference in the vehicles’ behavior, the following changes were made:

  • Aiming time of the B.L. 9.2-in. Howitzer Mk. II gun changed from 6,5 s to 6,6 s.
  • Reload time of the B.L. 9.2-in. Howitzer Mk. II gun changed from 55 s to 59 s.
  • Dispersion on barrel move of the B.L. 9.2-in. Howitzer Mk. II gun increased by 40%.
  • Penetration of the HE Mk. 18 shell for the B.L. 9.2-in. Howitzer Mk. II changed from 47 mm to 46 mm.

The battle effectiveness of three SPGs was boosted. We are still looking for ideal damage caused/ stun ratio of damage for SPGs.

  • G.W. E 100:
    • Aiming time of the 21 cm Mörser 18/2 gun for the G.W. E 100 turret changed from 5,5 s to 5,2 s.
    • Reload time of the 21 cm Mörser 18/2 gun for the G.W. E 100 turret changed from 45 s to 43 s.
  • T92:
    • Reload time of the 240 mm Howitzer M1 for the T92 turret changed from 55 s to 54 s.
  • Bat.-Châtillon 155 58:
    • Reload time of the Canon de 155 mm gun for the Batignolles-Châtillon 155 mle. 58 turret changed from 60 s to 55 s.
    • Traverse speed of the Batignolles-Châtillon 155 mle. 58 turret changed from 8 deg/s to 7 deg/s.
