World of Tanks Supertest has received the first Tier X wheeled vehicle, the French Panhard EBR 75 FL10, but with an unhistorical 105mm gun. According to Supertest users, the tank name and some other characteristics aren’t accurate, just placeholders, as the Tier X is currently being tested on the base of the Tier VIII vehicle.
This means the name might change in the future to something Wargaming will come up with as there wasn’t any Panhard EBR build with a 105mm gun. I’m currently trying to find plans or even mentions if the Panhard EBR was to be fitted with a 105mm gun with some of my sources, until then, we will have to just assume it’s a made-up version to fit the game.
The first noticeable feature you will see is the lack of a drum, the gun will be single shot and with a huge alpha for its calibre, quite a difference from what we were shown at Tier VIII.
Of course, let’s keep in mind this is a Supertest and all the information is subject to change, but in my own opinion, I don’t see where Wargaming wants to go with a wheeled vehicle with 420 alpha every 11 to 12 seconds. The vehicle is already unique enough with lower view range, wheels instead of tracks and the new boost mechanics. Why give a higher alpha damage to the same gun used by the AMX 13 105, not to mention it’s the highest damage ever to a 105mm gun. Maybe the balance department wants to juice it up, so they can later nerf it. We will have to wait and see.
For now, the stats is all we got available, no pictures or any other extra information.
