Czechoslovakian Heavy Tanks

There’s great news for those of you who enjoy playing heavy tanks! In Update 1.14, we’ll add an entire Czechoslovakian heavy tank branch to the game. It will consist of four researchable brawlers from Tier VII to Tier X. Researching the new branch of Czechoslovakian heavies will start at Tier VII, after the Škoda T-25. Let's take a closer look at the lineup.

The new branch kicks off with the Vz. 44-1, a Tier VII heavy. This tank easily performs the duties of a brawler, but its gameplay is more like that of a medium tank. It boasts good maneuverability and comfortable gun handling, as well as decent frontal armor. The Vz. 44-1 is a transitional step from medium to heavy tanks and will be a good training vehicle for Czechoslovakian crews.

Tier VIII is represented by the TNH 105/1000, which is in some ways an improved version of its Tier VII predecessor. This brawler has a solid turret with additional armor and a decent hull with well-sloped frontal armor. But its main feature is the choice of two top guns. Starting from Tier VIII, all Czechoslovakian heavies will have this unique feature.

The first gun fires in classic (cyclic) mode, while the second features a two-shell autoloader. Both guns are equal in battle performance and have the same caliber (105 mm), alpha damage, and depression/elevation angles. You’ll have the opportunity to choose the gun that best suits your personal playstyle.

The next warrior in the Czechoslovakian branch is the TNH T Vz. 51. This is a mighty, heavily armored brawler with an even more durable hull and a decent top speed of 50 km/h. You can also choose between its two 122 mm top guns (one cyclic, one autoloading) with the same parameters.

The crown jewel of the new heavy line is the formidable Vz. 55. This is a versatile heavy tank with a low silhouette, incredibly solid turret with additional armor, and thick lower frontal plate. It features two 130 mm top guns to choose from—one firing in cyclic mode, the other a two-shell autoloader with a short reload time between shells. Pick the one you like the most!

With 490 points of alpha damage and good gun stabilization, the Vz. 55 can become a real menace on the battlefield. Its top speed won’t impress, but it keeps up well and accelerates fast for a heavy tank. It’s able to close in on enemies and come out on top in a duel thanks to its excellent armor and the firepower of both top guns.

Take the menacing Czechoslovakian heavies for a spin and share your impressions!

Changes to SPG Personal Missions

In Update 1.14, we'll simplify some Personal Missions for artillery. When reworking missions, we focused on more challenging tasks because they greatly affect your overall progress in Personal Missions. Less complex missions such as SPG-2.1, 2.2, SPG-4.1, 4.2 etc. do not require updating, because they are already achievable and easy to complete.

We tried to rework the missions for a certain amount of stun and damage, because these are the parameters that were changed in Update 1.13. The rest of the missions, in our opinion, do not require updating. The missions' changes, in numerical terms, are not so significant, because SPGs can still effectively stun enemy vehicles with the first shell and deal damage with the second one.
