Greetings Tankers, 


Rolling onto the Supertest today is the French tier VII wheeled armoured car, the Hotchkiss EBR. We’re going to assess the statistical balance and continue battle-testing the new game mechanics. When we’re through, we’ll decide on the release set of game mechanics and the finalization of the entire wheeled vehicle mini-branch.


The Hotchkiss EBR is a ‘transitional’ vehicle introducing the players to the peculiar gameplay of top-tier wheeled armoured cars. It lacks the two driving modes like them, but it does have the Charge ability and the special lock-on feature. It also has an auto-reloading 75-mm gun. The dynamics and manoeuvrability of the Hotchkiss EBR are lower than those of the tier VIII–X vehicles. Additionally, the absence of the Drive (fast) results in a lesser top speed.


Depending on test results, the stats of the Hotchkiss EBR may change. Follow the news and all the luck in your battles!


Good hunting! :honoring:

How come the regular Tier VII vehicle is tested with an auto-reloader, the regular and premium Tier VIII wheeled vehicles are tested with autoloaders when the regular Tier IX and Tier X ones aren't planned to have auto(-re)loaders? I thought the plans were to somewhat unify the playstyle of high tier vehicles in each branch.

Since the opening post lacks the graphic, here are the stats:

Probably the best of the ACs so far, since it would have quite a competitive gun if the DPM was just a bit better. And again, stop with the trash tier VR. 

btw this thing has 38 less pen than the tier X. Nice meme.

Stop whining. With careful balancing, it will enhance the game.
