Here is what I found when comparing the vehicles with older patches, on tanks.gg.

1) VK168.01(P)

Before (9.20.1.4)
After (9.21)
Price: 100 => 11,500 golds

Engine power: 780 => 1600hp
P/w: 4.64 => 9.52
Mauerbrecher version added (it has been leaked to be released on the 24th December)

Oh boy, WG realized playing an immobile pillbow wasn't attractive. Still clearly inferior to the infamous (and free) VK100, as it has weakspots. Nurf VK100 and this one will be a worthy purchase.

 

2) Kirovets-1
Before (9.20)

After (9.20.1)

UFP: 120mm => 140mm
Turret front: 175mm => 195mm
Aim time: 3.16s => 2.97s
Engine Power: 520 => 720hp
P/w: 10.95 => 15.16

It seems much tougher now. It seems close to a 112 with a higher pen at the expense of the Pref MM. Its LFP is weak-ish when the tank is unangled, the turret roof is pennable from the top and the gun is derpy.
The IS-3A cries in a corner.


3) Somua SM

Before (9.20.4)
After (9.21)
Hull armor: 120/50/70 => 140/90/70 (about 210mm effective UFP)
Turret armor: 70/60/60 => 120/60/60 (about 190-210mm effective front)
HP: 1,400 => 1,450
View range: 350 => 370m
Top speed: 50 => 37
Engine power: 960hp => 700hp
P/w: 17.14 => 12.50
DPM: 1,584.35 => 2,001.24

Intra-clip reload: 3.75s => 2.25s (better than even the Lorraine's)

Reload time: 41.81s => 35.97s ​(only one second slower than the Lorraine's, but loads 5 shells instead of 4)
Dispersion: 0.36 => 0.38

This one got changed very heavily. I sincerely hope it won't be released in its current state, as I find it waaaaay too strong firepower-wise. There is no way the loss of some mobility and accuracy compensates that DPM and fast damage output. Thanks RNGesus, its cost is still set at 100 golds, which means nothing is final.

 

 

Your thoughts?

Wallbreaker 2 super weak spots on the front. no thanks.

 

Kirovets seems pretty stupid as its just a better IS-3A (seriously WG fix that stupid tank)

 

SomuaSM 2k base DPM with more alpha than same tier meds. typical. another tank that replaces a reason to touch tier 8 meds.

1. I'm glad they've buffed the mobility but it's still a tank I won't buy - I'm on the road to grinding a VK 100.01 and I already have a Löwe for credits and training. IMO the regular tanks should retain an edge over premiums, let's hope they don't "forget to model" the weakspots.

 

2. Meh.

 

3. Sounds like a premium 50 100 clone trading armour for a shot in the clip and some mobility. It'll probably be better than the power-crept FCM 50t (what isn't?) but it's not going to tempt me into changing, mainly because I hope that one day the FCM will be smiled upon by the buff fairy.
