Commanders,

 

We're excited to share that we'll soon start testing a new premium Tier VI vehicle, the American Medium M4A3E8 Thunderbolt VII. The vehicle is based on colonel Creighton Abrams’s personal tank, which he used from the beginning of 1945.

 

The main feature of this Sherman is its additional armor, because such modifications were common in the Third US Army.

 

The gameplay characteristics of this vehicle are similar to the researchable version - with slightly worse mobility but much better armor protection.

 

Take a look at the screenshots! :bush:

Please keep in mind that this is a preliminary set of features planned for future updates. The Supertest happens at the early stages of development - and involves checking future update changes and searching for the most critical issues before further stages of testing.

 

What do you think?

Cloning continues? Which I suppose M4A3E8 Sherman is mother and M4A3E8 Fury father?

Instead of adding more and more clones, how about fixing mm and arty first?

Will it come with a "Berlin-crew" or regular?

 

It is nice looking, but since I already have the Fury I feel very little need to buy this one.

How about you remove arty and balance some tanks and we talk again?

 

Takes a complete imbecile to want to play tier 6 normal matchmaking nowadays. Yes, this tank is going to be free XP to all the OP tier 8 premiums.

Not bad,still old 128 mm pen gun in new game machanics  will be next to obsolete .

Because it's imperative that the milking continues and rather than finding actual interesting and unique vehicles we'll clone uninspiring and underwhelming vehicles from the regular tree, add some window dressing and sell them at full price.

 

How about......you release that Chaffee/AMX 13 75 hybrid that the console version has, you know, a tank that is actually interesting?

I do get and understand what people are saying about clone tanks, but it is nice to see something historical for once. Doesn't hurt to have a change from power creep barely blue print tanks.

 

It will be interesting to see if it sticks with 128mm pen or if it gets a buff.

Improved Armor at the cost of mobility is never a good thing in Med tanks. I bought the T-34-85M and I regret it. Slower and everibody still pens you.

 

Make a premium sherman with the regular turret and the derp gun and I will buy it.

The T-34-85M is getting a good buff tomorrow, you may no longer regret it.

I would love to see more real historical tanks, especially as Premium tanks with all the details and markings accurately portrayed. But the pen, if it's a problem why make it tier 7 and not tier 6?
