A new article from “In development” series has appeared on the AW website. This time it concerns next Israeli MBT – Tiran 6. Besides of that, we were informed about the changes in the Israeli branch.
In this news I will focus mainly on the upcoming changes, if you want to read about the vehicle itself, I refer you to the aforementioned article. The link can be found here: Click
[…] We already announced a different vehicle for Tier 3 – the Sho’t Kal Dalet Main Battle Tank. Tiran 6 (previously intended as a Premium vehicle) will be replacing this vehicle on Tier 3 with Sho’t Kal Dalet moving to Tier 2 and the M51 Super Sherman will become a low-Tier branch Premium vehicle.
[…] This is also the reason why there is a Tier 7 gap in the branch – we had many internal discussions about the amount of Merkava tanks and about the fact some of those look very similar to each other. We felt that the amount of the same looking tanks would, simply put, be too much. Another Tier 7 candidate we considered, a Sabra version, had the same problem – it looked visually similar to the Tier 6 Magach 7C and putting Magach 7C itself on Tier 7 would mean a completely unrealistic overtiering that we did in the past and are not keen on repeating.
The current solution is therefore a compromise of the requirements set by game designers and those set by the Armored Warfare player acquisition specialists. And as for the M51 – you will have the opportunity to easily receive it for free (no worries – loot crates will not be involved).
