We are introducing two new different historical customization options as promised: the first one affects the vehicle’s characteristics - mounted armour and other protection elements. The second one is based on personalisation, this may either help to camouflage a player's vehicle, or enhance customisation,! Let’s have a look at the details. PREVIOUSLYNEW FEATURE Mounted armour and protection elementsMounted armour and protection elements is functional additional protection for a vehicle that is visually displayed on the tank’s model after it has been researched or purchased as a module in the “modification” tab. The protection elements mean improvised protection that was mounted by the crew as a field modification such as sandbags or additional track links. We plan to introduce these elements for the majority of ground vehicles in the game.

General: T-90 vs TOW missile

The Washington Post has picked up the story of a Russian built T-90 tank in Syria being attacked with a US built TOW missile.  Video of this incident first appeared in late February and made the rounds in various news outlets and websites.  The original video cuts off shortly after the missile appears to strike the tank, leaving it unclear as to how much damage was inflicted by the attack.  The Washington Post article shows a photo of the T-90 tank taken from the website “War Is Boring” which shows that the T-90 survived the attack largely intact, with the damage being limited to, ironically, the Shtora  counter-measure system.  The Shtora system is intended to electronically disrupt missiles such as the TOW, although in this particular instance the system was either not turned on or not working.  The ineffectiveness of the TOW missile in this particular instance is being attributed to the Kontakt-5 reactive armor which protects the T-90.  The article notes that the TOW missile used i…

Armored Warfare: IN DEVELOPMENT: AMX-13

The AMX-13 is a French Light Tank, known for its incredibly long service. Where other designs from the late 1940s are long obsolete, the AMX-13 continues to serve with distinction. Designed in the late 1940s, it represents a radical departure from wartime designs. When France fell to the German invasion in 1940, its armored vehicles were perhaps not the best in the world, but modern designs such as the Somua S35 were quite advanced. Unfortunately these vehicles were never deployed in very large numbers and were only entering service in 1940. Instead, it was the older designs like the Char B1, French Renault and Hotchkiss light tanks, and even the venerable FT-17 that bore the brunt of the attack.

French armor development continued in secret during the war and several interesting tanks were conceived between 1940 and 1945, but the occupation ultimately didn’t allow for any of these vehicles to progress beyond the drawing board stage. After the war, France quickly learned that the armored …
