Tier 10 Mediums and TDs announced
Currently Tier 9 is the peak of a vehicleâ€™s class development for medium tanks and tank destroyers in World of Tanks. Quite often players ask game developers whether they are going to introduce Tier 10 for these two classes of vehicles. It is about time to give the exact and precise answer to that question - Tier 10 Meds and TDs will most definitely be introduced!
At the moment new vehicles undergo a balancing process; therefore, itâ€™s too early to speculate about final specifications of these long-awaited armored vehicles. However, itâ€™s known that all Tier 10 Meds and TDs will retain the specific tech tree features which are particular for the nation they belong to.
Interested to see what exactly the World of Tanks developers are preparing for their players?
The Tier 10 medium USSR vehicle will be the T-62A. In its top configuration it will be equipped with 100-mm gun D-54TC. Â
E-50 Ausf M will head up the German tank tech tree. In its top configuration it will have a 10,5 cm KwK 45 L/52 Ausf. K gun on board.
Fans of the American combat vehicles will conquer the battlefields on the medium tank M48A1 (Patton III), equipped with 90 mm M41 and 105mm M68 guns.
The most drastic changes will affect the French tank tech tree. All light and medium tanks from AMX 12t (i.e. AMX 12t, AMX 13 75, AMX 13 90, Lorraine 40t, Bat Chatillon 25t) will be raised one Tier upwards. The light tank ELC AMX will be added as a Â new Tier 5 vehicle with 75 mm SA32, 75 mm Long 44 and 90 mm D914 mountable guns.
Bat Chatillon 25t, now raised to Tier 10, will be equipped in stock with 90 mm F3 gun and have 105 mm CN-105-57
The details about French tanks substitution process and compensation procedure will be explained in more detail in a later update.
â€œObject 268â€ together with its 152 mm M64 gun will become a Tier 10 tank destroyer. Â
The German tank tech tree will be enlarged by the tank destroyer JagdPz E-100 with 17 cm PaK 45 gun on board.
The American nation will be reinforced by two new Tier 10 anti-tank vehicles. Players who have T95 will be able to open T110E3 tank destroyer. This vehicle will have a non-rotating turret and a 155 mm AT gun T7.
The branch of the US tech tree with turret-rotating tank destroyers which are currently headed by T30, will be amplified with T110E4. The particular feature of that TD will be a partially rotating turret (rotation angle â€“ 180 degrees). The 155 mm AT Gun T7 will be its top weapon.
Cassette loader â€“ Itâ€™s the key feature of the French vehicles. Tier 10 TD AMX 50 Foch will have it as well. The gun SA 58 AC will have 3 shells in the drum.
We would again like to remind you that the above mentioned information is not final. The vehicle specifications listed above can be subject to change prior to their official in-game release.
Stay tuned for further information about these upcoming tanks!
Q&A found from WoT Forums
Q: will the E100 Jagdpanzer come after the Jagdtiger?
A: Yes, it will. We will release updated Tank Trees soon.
Q: T62? Seems Russian mediums will finally be on par with their counterparts again.
A: They are on par with them currently.
Q: moving French tanks up a tier? Brilliant idea, actually. The lights already had heavier Match Making, and the Lorraine was waaaaaaaaaaaaaay overgunned for a tier 8 medium.
A: They will be rebalanced according to their new stance. We will release more details soon.
Q: the T110 TD that comes after the T95 looks weird, but cute. Wonder if it will retain the armor of the T95? Or the handling of the T110? Neither? Both! Looks like it might be good for camo.
Q: E50 model 2? I'm intrigued. Wonder how the new gun will handle.
A: Please, wait till the release of the vehicles on the Public Test. There you will find all details. We will announce the number of update in which they will enter in the end of June. It does not mean, that they will enter 7.5.
A: The number of update an approximate term will be announced in the end of June. It does not mean that they will enter 7.5 update.
Q:Yeah it does. Looks nothing like the Stug 100 (which looks awesome btw). So the Allies once again get post WWII tech while the Germs wallow in yesterdays tech? When will the Germans get the Leopard? Not that blip of a light tank, the REAL Leopard? Oh wait, its German, so I guess never right? Awesome.....
A: First of all, German war-thought was advaced for their time.
Secondly, E-series, along with Maus, were Top projects, which Germans were not able to produce in 45s. So these vehicles advanced their time.
And the last but not the least, since they were never produced, they can receive characteristics similar to be in line with the rest of Tier 10 vehicles. Please, do not mix 'PWN WITH ONE BUTTON IN 5 SECONDS!!!!' like people normally think, but be on par with their advantages and disadvantages, like current E50 compared with other Tier 9 Mediums.
Q: Will the current set of tier 9 mediums will be rebalanced?
A: We do not exclude such possibility.
Q: So we receive the same BatChat?? Just be uptiered? We should get it for free!
A: Nope, it won't be the same. BatChat will receive another gun and will be rebalanced. In any case all details about replacement of French vehicles will be announced later.
Q: Wikipedia: "The T-62 is a Soviet main battle tank, a further development of the T-55. Its 115 mm gun was the first smoothbore tank gun in use." Why not 115 mm gun ?

looks like ill be grinding french lights for the extra garage slots... yippee!
and 17 cm gun? holy balls, that thing is going to tear it up. And I'm pretty much never going to touch my teir 10 heavies again after this patch, as they will be hopelessly outgunned by T10 mediums. Not to mention TD's with montrous weapons of mass destruction..
