Wheeled Vehicles Are Ready to Roll Out onto World of Tanks Battlefield

Written by Contributor

February 7, 2019

The first big addition to World of Tanks in 2019 is here: a sub-branch of wheeled vehicles that are ready to add a new dimension to light tank gameplay. Starting at Tier VI, the French can be researched after reaching the tracked Tier V AMX ELC bis.

The wheeled vehicles are:

  • AMD Panhard 178B, Tier VI
  • Hotchkiss EBR, Tier VII
  • AML Lynx 6×6, Tier VIII
  • Panhard EBR 90 (mle. 64), Tier IX
  • Panhard EBR 105, Tier X

The addition of the French wheeled vehicles creates a new role on the battlefield: the true active scout. These machines need to get closer to their targets to light them up for teammates, thanks to their high camouflage values.

The newcomers will also introduce two new mechanics that are unlocked through the sub-branch. Both of the mechanics are unique to the French wheeled vehicles, they are:

  • The lock-on feature
  • Two driving modes: Drive and Default

Due to sufficiently higher speeds, enabling auto aim would become a challenge. The lock-on feature massively simplifies this feature and is unlocked with the AMD Panhard 178B. Drive and Default are available from the AML Lynx 6×6:

  • Drive will allow extreme speed, but sacrifices handling
  • Default allows for better maneuverability, but less pace

“We’re looking forward to releasing the French wheeled vehicles onto the live server with Update 1.4,” states Maxim Chuvalov, Publishing Director, World of Tanks. “By adding them, we hope players will like the new range of vehicles and enjoy mastering the new gameplay role on the battlefield.”

Wheeled vehicles are coming as part of Update 1.4 and is now available in-game
