Today, two new maps have arrived on the supertest: Minsk and Poland (names are not final). The former is a city map with references to a specific location in Russia, and the latter is a map of a mixed type in the setting of a Polish town. Read on for more details.
The full set of preliminary stats for the tier 8 Polish non-premium heavy tank, 53TP Markowskiego, have arrived from the supertest (alongside the 50TP Tyszkiewicza's). The vehicle is set to have better armor than its' predecessors; however, the hull is not particularly well-protected, and the vehicle, while not as slow as its' brethren at tier 9 and 10, is not exactly the most mobile (especially compared to the lights and mediums which lead up to it in the tree). The main strong points of this vehicle are its' gun - a 122mm gun currently set to have 420 alpha damage - and turret armor, as well as good gun depression angles. Read on for more details.

Read on for more details.
