CZ Tier 7 Konštrukta T-34/100

Hello Warriors,

here is the Czechoslovak tier 7 Konštrukta T-34/100:


In the early 50's, the Czechoslovak military realized the T-34/85 tank that was being license-produced in Czechoslovakia was getting obsolete and issued an order in 1953 to the VTU military research institute to increase its combat value. One of the proposals in this program by Konštrukta Trenčín included adapting a Vz.44 S cannon (license-produced copy of the D-10T) for the T-34 chassis. It was presented to the Czechoslovak military in 1954 and gathered harsh criticism. The project had several major flaws such as limited ammunition capacity and poor gun depression amongst them. It was rejected in the June of 1954. Other projects of this program included an automatic loader for the 85mm gun or an automatically loaded 100mm gun installation. These were short-lived however as the attempts to upgrade the T-34 stopped in favour of purchasing the production license for the T-54.

Toldi III Screenshots

Hello Warriors,

The Toldi III a proposed tank for the Hungarian tree is making its way into the game as... a German tank. This isn't necessarily fresh news but I wonder why WG EU was given this screenshots to share in their social pages before hand (most come from RU/NA first) it seems like they were given the hot potato (aka discontent masses) to deal with.

Check out its statistics:

21.9.2015 Q&A

- Storm confirms that HD environmental models do not have proper size ("bus is too big"), it will be reworked during HD map overhaul
- Centurion Action X turret roof effective armor is 200+ mm according to Storm
- Centurion Action X sucks? "We made it the way it really was."
- the frontal turret of Action X is pretty thick but Storm doesn't recommend using it to bounce shots like you can use the Soviet turrets
- the sloped area above the mantlet is the weakspot of Action X (149 - 197mm EFF)
- Storm confirms: armor is the only parameter that will not be touched in favour of balance
- Vickers MBT would be two times more fragile than Action X Centurion
- it's theoretically possible to give Action X two guns but the vehicle is practically ready, balanced and prepared for release
- having no fume extractor on HD T34 is historical according to Storm, the model is based on this photo

Russian censors investigating World of Tanks forums

Hello warriors,

as you probably know, there's a lot of media censorship of the "decadent capitalist influences" going on in Russia. The office responsible for such censorship is called Roskomnadzor - one of its functions is to "investigate potentially dangerous content".

According to a tweet on Roskomnadzor account, an investigation will be launched into the World of Tanks forums based on suspicions that they contain "illegal information".

What can that be we can only guess. Could also be an elaborate troll.. :)

0.9.11 - New Sounds Coming

Hello warriors,

in 0.9.11, new sounds will apparently make an appearance! According to exclusive materials recorded by a WoT Youtuber Amway921, here's how things will sound:

Here is a guy testing it in WG studio - text by Redditer Senaya :

Listen to fuel engine, track moving and shooting

Listen to bots bouncing off your armour

Listen to diesel engine

Listen to arty shooting

Listen to your tank being on fire and then fuel leaking

Listen to your ammo rack being damaged

They claim that every sound on the map will be audible, so you will hear players fighting on the other side of the map (they said something like "if marker exists, you will hear it" so maybe it will only be audible in the 600m area around you). From now on you will be able to hear which gun is shooting at you, so you always know if you're targeted by E-100, arty or something else. Every module (engine, turret, tracks etc) will also get new sounds, along with pretty much everything else. Only sounds that will stay (for now) are crew voices and objects breaking (soon to be changed too). Now you won't have to read on screen what was damaged, you can tell what you need to fix just by listening to module sounds. Also, if you're playing arty, you will hear players shooting at you now.

Bonus: the famous old crit bell sound is making its return with this update
