Swedish Premium Vehicles Hit the Battlefield October 10
The Swedes are making their grand entrance this month!
Don’t miss adding two exceptional Premium vehicles to your arsenal, and begin building the strength of Swedish Crews before the full tech tree arrives.
The Strv m/42-57 medium tank carries a fearsome auto-loading gun that can wipe out an enemy in a single clip. Just make sure you’ve got dependable cover while you load back up.
The tier VIII Stark Strv S1 is the Swedish Hero tank destroyer, and also introduces Siege mode! In this new gameplay mode, the Stark gets superb accuracy and incredible damage potential. Switch to "Drive" mode and you can enjoy a swift and nimble TD on the way to find a suitable perch. Use these modes as intended – shots are wasted in Drive mode, and you’ll escape from no one while in Siege. As a bonus in Siege mode, Camo Nets and Binocular Telescopes will remain active during hull rotations.
Press the “Siege mode” button (same as “hull lock” – check your control config under Options) to toggle Siege mode on or off during battle. Note that switching between Siege and Drive modes takes a few moments to complete, during which your vehicle can’t move or shoot.
Aiming System: First-person (“sniper”) view works differently in Drive; like in the normal third-person view, you control the camera instead of the gun, and the gun moves to where the camera is oriented. When moving the camera in Siege, the tank rotates, with the suspension moving as necessary to follow the camera. In addition, auto-aiming stays active when switching between first- and third-person views (unlike other vehicles where it automatically toggles off in first-person).
