'World of Tanks' v8.3 Content Update Adds Chinese Tanks

by Rainier on Jan. 16, 2013 @ 9:15 a.m. PST

In World of Tanks 30-player teams are fighting action-packed PvP battles. The game features more than 150 armored fighting vehicles from the pre-WW2 era up to the Korean War: light, medium, heavy and super heavy tanks, tank destroyers, self-propelled howitzers and rocket artillery. The game includes American, German and Soviet tanks.

World of Tanks v8.3 content update adds seventeen steel machines used by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army in mid-twentieth century warfare. Chinese tank designers combined the best qualities of existing designs from foreign engineers, modernizing and upgrading their technology to build some of the fiercest tanks of their time. As a result, the Chinese tank fleet consisted of modifications of classical models, as well as original combat vehicles.  

The lower tiers of the new tech tree feature a hotchpot of various foreign designs, including the first Japanese-made tank in the game — the Type 97 Chi-Ha. Heavy Soviet influences are reflected in the top-tier tanks, which also include a number of original Chinese models, some of which never went into mass production.

A fearsome opponent, the Chinese tanks are equipped with decent armor, impressive mobility and accurate guns with high damage potential making them a force to be reckoned with.

The Update 8.3 is now live in Europe and Southeast Asia. North-American players will get the update on January 17, while the Korean audience will start testing the new tech tree starting from January 21.
