List of Update 0.28.5448 Changes

Firepower Rebalance

We are rebalancing several high-caliber shells based on the performance of the vehicles that fire them:

  • XM1A3 140mm APFSDS penetration increased from 720 to 785mm and damage to 960
  • XM1A3 – fixed the issue where its 120mm HEAT-MP shells would deal excessive HE damage
  • Challenger 2 ATDU 140mm APFSDS penetration increased from 760 to 805mm and damage to 940
  • Type 99A2-140 APFSDS damage increased to 920 and HE damage reduced to 850, reload time increased to 12.2s
  • Armata 152 APFSDS damage increased to 1050, reload time increased to 13.7s
  • IS-7 and Object 279 APFSDS damage increased to 630 and HE damage reduced to 470
  • Additionally, Object 279 reload time was increased from 10.5s to 10.8s and the vehicle no longer has preferential Premium matchmaking

MBT-70, KPz-70, M551 Sheridan and M60A2 Starship 152mm shells are changed as such (where applicable):

  • HEAT damage increased to 720
  • APFSDS damage increased to 780
  • Shillelagh ATGM damage increased to 760

The reload time of all four abovementioned vehicles was increased to 13.52s in order to keep the damage per minute output the same.

Finally, a number of vehicles underwent smaller accuracy, aim time and gun stabilization (accuracy when moving) value changes in order to keep the guns more diverse.
