Today we got more details from Supertest: some vehicles previously in test got further fine-tuned. Let’s have a look at the details:
Turret changes were rolled back, and they will stay the same as currently on Update 9.20. Statistics showed the British Premium medium tank was too effective in combat during the overall test. Wargaming will now continue to experiment with the tank and decide how they will release it for the second Common Test.
The upcoming British Tier X tank destroyer that will replace the FV215b (183) got its own name: FV217 Badger. The Badger will receive further improvements to its frontal armour and increased alpha damage. Meanwhile, the rate of fire will be reduced but the damage per minute will stay the same. Also, its top speed will be decreased, but overall dynamics will be improved, meaning its cross-terrain capability will get better and will be able to keep its speed.
The small French tank is waiting for serious improvements. The magazine will be changed, with a reduced number of shells but improved reload times for both magazine and in-between shots. But that’s not all, its alpha damage will also be reviewed.
Caernarvon Action X
The British Premium heavy tank is awaiting some cosmetic changes with increased armour added. Its damage per minute will also be improved, and hopefully, this will make it a worthy tank.
Last but not least, the armoured French drummer will also get reviewed: Wargaming decided to reduce its top speed but increased its engine power. As a result, it will be better to manoeuvre and keep its speed.
