World of Tanks Supertest: Clan Wars Reward Tanks Changes

Today, Clan Wars reward tanks will be making their way to Supertest. The changes Wargaming is considering will affect four vehicles: VK 72.01, the M60, the T95E6, and the 121B. The objective is to make these tanks fit better within today’s Clan clashes.

For a while players who received these vehicles have been asking for a review, but in my own opinion, I’m not sure if these changes were what players looked for. While some changes are more than welcome, the changes to the T95E6 don’t seem to fit what is considered the worse Tier X medium of the game. Still, these are preliminary changes and subject to change, so we still might have hopes of it getting fixed.

Please note the following information is from Supertest and it’s subject to change.

American Medium M60

The gameplay on this one will differ even more from the Patton in the tech tree. We plan to make the M60 faster and more suitable for long distance support fire and terrain-based play. To achieve this, we’ll improve its mobility and firepower parameters (stabilization, dispersion, and armour penetration with HEAT rounds).

American Medium T95E6

This medium tank will undergo lots of changes: it will be transformed into a fast-shooting support vehicle, well suited for short distance combat. Its rate of fire, stabilization, and engine power will all get a boost, but its efficiency at long range will be slightly decreased with lowered accuracy and penetration with standard ammunition. We expect the updated T95E6 to fare well in close combat on any terrain with its good gun depression. High Alpha and DPM will allow it to oppose enemy heavies (with some manoeuvring). Its efficiency will have limitations imposed by relatively low accuracy and penetration with standard rounds, and by weak hull armour combined with large scale. So the T95E6 main role will be providing support for the main strike group at close range.

German  Heavy VK 72.01 (K)

The “Failöwe” will gain hit points (upped to 2,850) and firepower. Stabilization, aiming time, and penetration with HEAT rounds will improve. High durability and good protection will let the VK 72.01 survive long, even while facing an overwhelming opposing force. Great Alpha and high armour penetration with Premium rounds will make any thick-skinned opponent extra careful while approaching it. The designated role of the VK 72.01 is holding positions and trading damage with the enemy.

Chinese Medium 121B

The 121B will become an agile and manoeuvrable medium tank with an outstanding spotting range (upped to 420 m) and very low detectability. Its DPM, aiming, and armour penetration with Premium rounds will get better. The gun will allow for enjoyable long range play. Yet the 121B will be weaker than the opponents of the same tier and class at close range because of relatively weak protection. Its main role will be reconnaissance plus support from the 2nd line.

  1. Very interesting. Hoping to add one of these the next time they offer them now that I have my Obj 907.

    1. I play this Game 4 years (27 k battles). Played around 150 battles in clanwars. My WN8 is around 1500 overall and over 2000 in the last year. I never got such a tank and i will never have the chance to get one. So WG, when i have no chance (better then average), why should anyone care?

      1. Maybe you should get to a better clan? 🙂 Joking, there are plenty of players out there that want changes to these vehicles, so even if they are in smaller numbers, they also deserve to have tanks they own updated.

      2. I have 20k battles (also over 4 years), have 1400 wn8 overall and 1800 recent, i joined clans specifically to play CW, the clans that accepted me had/have ambition for CW, they are not the best there are but give their best in each and every game, i played over 1000 CW matches and got myself a IS5, 907, M60 and a VK7201 so it its perfectly doable for someone like you, just do not expect to have it handed over on a silver platter…

      3. I see plenty of 1000wn8 players running around in tier x cw rewards. Campaigns were never about quality but quantity. If you are better you win more and it just makes it easier to get the tank.

  2. WHAT THEY ARE DOING WITH T95E6 IS PATHETIC!

    If it’s to make a stupid change like that, leave it as it is.

  3. I only accept this on T95E6 if they take out the cupola cancer OR increase the cupola armor.

    BUT AT THE MOMENT, THIS IS JUST PATHETIC

    I want my tank better or the way it is, it really pissed me off…

  4. These changes look great, my only concern is buffing premium round penetration. Since that might start a trend for all tanks. I feel like they are doing it to deal with the recent armour overbuffs but buffing premium round pen seems like a weird way (instead of just nerfing the armour)

  5. Balancing 907? But 121b was already quite amazing except the incredibly low dpm. If they update vk and 121 with those changes. They will become way too good. I mean 2850 hp to trade with 750 gun and 350 penetration? nobody would want to peek that tank..

  6. I love how they balanced the Vk 72 and Pz VII to be twins in most parameters including HP, but now it’s better then the E100 and the Pz VII and to add insult to the already poor preforming light tanks they go an buff another med tanks view range to 420 once again messing up light tanks chance to do anything els beside being mobile targets.

  7. Those VK buffs. Wow. The VK is already fairly balanced as is, but if this goes through it will be a far better tank then the E-100 and Pz VII.

  8. Instead of fixing premium tanks that players spent money to purchase, WG fix premium tanks that player spend no money to obtain.

    1. have u played clan wars the players who are earnig these rewards do not grind all their credits in a tier 6 arty and wih the massive HEAT spam in clan wars and the players being some of the most active and controbuting vast amounts of wonga generally speakig wg are meerly answering to their biggest market they dobt care if the kv5 is shit they have got a defender or patriot with premium account which they just play in strongholds so hees bo mm issues

    2. Isn’t what they do when they fix regular tanks? 🙂 Don’t worry, Premium tanks will have their turn.
