Is there a way to change the font size of the text appearing over tanks?

Besides using XVM, try interface scaling in the graphic settings menu. It's screen size dependent on how effective it is. So it won't work most times.

The only options I have are auto and x1.  They seem exactly the same.

WG did not build in a way of scaling down the UI lower than 1.0 via menu. Why is beyond me tbh, as is useful if one has a lower res monitor/laptop screen.

 

So you either need XVM, or install UI Scaling Mod from the official WG mods portal: link

 

Advice is not to go too low, it makes text and icon jagged and hard to read. I use 0.93 scale and that is good enough of a downscale for me.

I don't like to use mods, I have none installed, for any game.  But this appears to be the only way to do it.  My problem with the font size is that it is too big for my taste.  While I could remove some of the info, I don't want to.  At its current size it blocks my view way too many times.  Reading the text shouldn't be too much of an issue (at least due to the size on its own) as I use a large screen (40 inch).  

Thank you, I will consider using it.

WG is thinking in adding a feature to allow players to change the UI scaling and other stuff to not depend so much on monitor resolution, probably after 1.0 update. Saw that in a Q&A somewhere in a blog.
