The following vehicles are now available:

  • Leclerc Prototype Tier 7 Main Battle Tank (learn more)
  • VCAC Mephisto Tier 8 Tank Destroyer (learn more)
  • Al-Hussein Tier 8 Main Battle Tank (learn more)
  • Leclerc Tier 9 Main Battle Tank (learn more)
  • Leclerc T40 Tier 9 Premium Tank Destroyer (learn more)
  • Leclerc T4 Tier 10 Main Battle Tank (learn more)

As for the Al-Hussein MBT, it replaces the Ariete in the Challenger branch of vehicles. The Ariete is now an alternative Tier 8 option for the French branch. Please note, however, that it will not be possible to unlock the Tier 9 Leclerc from the Ariete. As for the exchange itself, the following rules apply:

  • Ariete now counts as a Francine De Laroche vehicle (for the purpose of achievements)
  • If you had the Ariete purchased in your Garage, you will automatically receive Al-Hussein
  • If your Ariete has accumulated at least one point of Experience, the Al Hussein will be awarded to you fully unlocked
  • If the Tier 9 token unlocked on the Ariete was used already, it will not be possible to unlock on the Al-Hussein MBT

This second half of the branch comes with new features:

  • Commander Vincent Girard can be unlocked from the Tier 10 Leclerc (learn more about him)
  • New Pressure Control retrofit will be available for unlocking from the VCAC Mephisto (learn more)
  • Level 3 retrofit is now available for unlocking from the Leclerc
  • The Mastery system is now available for the Leclerc T4
  • New visual customization options

The Level 3 (v3) retrofit Improved Barrel Lining is obtainable from the Tier 9 Leclerc MBT. It grants the following bonuses:

  • 13 percent bonus to Rate of Fire (same as Improved Gun Breach v2)
  • 5 percent reduction to Maximum Spread (same as Advanced MRS v1)

In order to obtain it, one of the following feats must be performed 10 times:

  • PvP (Random Battles): Be the one in your team to receive the most hits (no fewer than 10) while having Vincent Girard command your vehicle. You also need to resist at least 1.000 damage and damage no fewer than 7 vehicles in one match
  • Global Operations: Be the one in your team to receive the most hits (no fewer than 10) while having Vincent Girard command your vehicle. You also need to win, resist at least 5.000 damage and damage no fewer than 12 vehicles in one match

The Mastery system, currently only available for the Tier 10 Leclerc T4 MBT, will test your skill with that vehicle. It requires a completion of the following achievements 4 times:

  • Obtain a Steel Eagle epic medal by helping destroy the largest amount of enemy vehicles on your team in Random Battles (at least 12 vehicles)
  • Complete the Steel Avalanche mission by winning a PvP Random Battle match without taking any losses or a Global Operations match without losing more than 300 team points

And last but not least, there are the new visual customization options:
