Commanders,

 

Today we’re launching the Supertest for two new vehicles, the HWK 30 and the T95/FV4201 Chieftain. They are, respectively, a German Premium Tier VIII light tank and a British reward Tier X heavy.


Let’s take a closer look at the HWK 30!

Though this tank is assigned to the German nation, it has Mexican roots. The original was a joint project by Mexico’s Secretariat of National Defense and German tank makers—like the HWK 12 which is already present in the game.

 

In terms of gameplay, the HWK 30 will fill in the gap between the Ru 251 and the HWK 12, being a mobile vehicle with an excellent spotting range and comfortable firing parameters. The speed of the basic round should be singled out: a whopping 1080 m/s! As you might’ve guessed, the HWK 30 has no armor to speak of, and possesses a modest HP pool: it’s a light tank after all, brave and unassuming. Or crafty, depending on circumstances.

 

On the battlefield, the HWK 30 works well as a mid-to-long-range scout, due to its spotting and camo combined with outstanding mobility. You may deal some damage, too, especially from the hills’ back slopes: the gun depression allows it, and lack of armor sort of hints you should retreat from enemy fire. To sum up, the HWK 30 is your typical German LT: it survives by being agile and not approaching the frontline and may occasionally bite some HP off an enemy (most likely, by sniping).

 

Spoiler

 

As always, the parameters of both tanks may change based on Supertest results. Follow the news and good luck in your battles!

It's nice that you're adding tier 8 premium light tanks so that players can get crew trainers for their regular light tanks. Just make sure to add these vehicles to the client aswell so that players can get them for gold, or alternatively, allow players to buy things from the web premium shop from the client with gold.

 

Other than that, it looks nice :P

 

PS. Can we please get some supertest/insider news regarding the premium ammo/consumables rework? :hiding:

Dat feel when rashn t8 premium light tank is straight up better than its tech tree counterpart and also powercreeps all other tech tree t8 lights, while new german t8 premium light tonk is straight up worse than its tech tree counterpart and is at best below avera compared to other t8 tech tree lights.

 

Kinda makes you think.

Looks a lot like a somewhat nerfed version of the old Ru251 at T8 (not the same model, but very similar).

Who wants to buy this anyways? Just wait till WG sells the M41 90 again to get a tier 9 light tank with tier 8 MM.

Hopefully depression is -10 in front also. Currently ru-251 needs depression buff in the front also.

If this thing has - 6 front depression like ru, it will worse than the new lt 432 in every single way. And how will you snipe with 0,37 accuracy? Lt-432 has better accuracy, armor, camo and pretty much everything else.

LT-420 shell velocity 1300 m/s

HWK30 shell velocity 1080 m/s. And this is the strength of the tank???? Another dpm sniper like RHM panzer??? ARE YOU KIDDING?

Strange how lights are such in the wind. Guess that's the result of having a matchmaker where lights are the ones getting least stiffed.

1080 m/s isn't exactly great, but at least above-average. Can't help but think that aside from one shot less per minute, this thing is just flat-out better than the M41 90GF. Engine power, shell velocity and higher camo values in particular.

 

Thanks for making the powercreep obvious though. A sensible approach might be to give a discount to owners of the 'replaced' tank, just like you did with the Kanonenjagdpanzer 105. It would ensure some level of goodwill.

Trouble withe M41-90GF, is that it is so tall, not small and sneaky like the T 92 or ELC EVEN 90. So I never know to play it like a medium or a LT.

It's unfair.
The BC 12 T is smaller. and has 380 viewrange... This tank is lots bigger and has 400.
I hope the tank his camo is really bad. because otherwise is this tank just OP against other lights

and here im still wating for the mighty AFK.Panther. Just give him the Konische with an italian autoloader-Style and an ~7 Shott mag with ~1,5 interclip for about 70 dmg per shoot. It will work, bc it will not be OP with that puny burst DMG, and I will be happy, bc i can ramm some Bat-chans and keep them tracked with my little stapler
