The Swedish tree comes in two flavors: tank destroyers and a mixed branch.
The TDs are lightly armored, making them quick off the mark. They can bring the pain with their decent guns and stay safe with their low silhouettes. At tiers VIII–X, the TDs introduce Siege and Travel modes. The former considerably ramps up your ability to deal damage. The latter is for when you need to secure your position.
The mixed branch has light, medium and heavy tanks. Early-to-mid tiers have good elevation arcs and can slip into a number of combat roles. At the higher end, the EMIL I, EMIL II, and Kranvagn have the nation’s trademark gun depression and autoloaders.
Thanks to your feedback, we’ve built on the first round of changes to several Premium vehicles, tweaking the combat parameters of the FV4202, STA-2, M4A1 Revalorisé, T26E4 Super Pershing, WZ-111, Löwe, Panther 8.8, T34, M46 Patton, and 112.
Improvements were also made to the French heavy tanks АМХ 50В and АМХ 50 120.
On the sound stage, we’ve made a few improvements:
- Those of you with 5.1/7.1 surround systems now have associated presets in Settings
- Locking onto a target is now followed by a sound notification
- The option to turn on a mic is now available in the “Sound” tab
- New sounds for hitting the ground and collisions with natural obstacles that signal the severity of the collision
