Tanks Reforged and On-Track: Chinese Heavy Tanks

September 26, 2022

Check out the upgraded weaponry and more on almost all of the Chinese heavy tanks in Tiers VII through X!

Tanks Reforged is the initiative that overhauls vehicles from World War II mode and brings them in line with today’s battle standards.

For this edition, the team took a look at the Chinese heavy tank line and its related Premium vehicles and asked, “How can we make these handle even better in the heat of battle?” You’ve got the answers right here in this article!

Take a look at the rebalancing details below to start. Then, read on to learn how On-Track makes it easy to make several of the rebalanced Tech Tree tanks yours!


TECH TREE TANKS

Chinese Tier X 113 Heavy Tank

Being more of a “heavium,” the 113 has really suffered in survivability compared to other heavy tanks. We focused on changes to keep its playstyle the same while improving its survivability with additional health and increased firepower.

Details:

  • Reload: 10.5 -> 9.8
  • Aim time: 2.7 -> 2.5
  • Health: 2,300 -> 2,450
  • Ammo capacity: 34 -> 45

Chinese Tier X WZ-111 model 5A Heavy Tank

We made changes to create additional differences between this tank and the Qilin so that it’s not as outclassed but doesn’t outclass the 113 at the same time.

Details:

  • Reload: 11.2 -> 10.8
  • Accuracy: 0.39 -> 0.38

Chinese Tier IX WZ-111 model 1-4 Heavy Tank

This tank received various improvements mostly to improve the stock and middle gun options. The top gun does get a slight improvement in reload, but all weapons will benefit from the better chassis dispersion values.

Details:

  • Chassis 1
    • Shot dispersion during movement: 0.23 -> 0.2
    • Shot dispersion during rotation: 0.23 -> 0.2
  • Chassis 2
    • Shot dispersion during movement: 0.21 -> 0.18
    • Shot dispersion during rotation: 0.21 -> 0.18
  • Turret 1
    • 122mm D-25T -> 122mm D-25TS

      • Reload: 11.3 -> 10.3
      • Aim time: 2.9 -> 2.5
      • Accuracy: 0.46 -> 0.4
    • 100mm 62-100T
      • Accuracy: 0.38 -> 0.34
    • 130mm 59-130T
      • Reload: 14 -> 13
  • Hull health: 1,400 -> 1,450
    • Stock health: 1,750 -> 1,800
    • Upgraded health: 1,850 -> 1,900

Chinese Tier VIII 110 Heavy Tank

The 110 was the main tank that needed improvement in this line, so it received improvements to health, armor, and firepower. It now starts off with a better stock gun and offers a new top gun option. You can choose to use the more accurate, quicker-firing 100mm gun or go with the new 122mm gun, which hits harder.

Details:

  •  Hull
    • Corner panels: 100mm -> 120mm
  • Chassis 1
    • Shot dispersion during movement: 0.25 -> 0.24
    • Shot dispersion during rotation: 0.25 -> 0.24
  • Chassis 2
    • Shot dispersion during movement: 0.23 -> 0.22
    • Shot dispersion during rotation: 0.23 -> 0.22
  • Turret 1
    • View range: 350 -> 360
    • 122mm 37-122JT
      • Removed

      • Aim time: 3.4 -> 2.8
      • Accuracy: 0.46 – 0.42
      • Reload: 12.3 -> 12

      • Penetration: 217/270/61
      • Aim time: 2.8
      • Accuracy: 0.4
      • Reload: 12.5

Chinese Tier VII IS-2 Heavy Tank

We buffed the first 122mm gun to the stats of the D-25T and removed the D-25T as a duplicate. This gives you top performance as soon as you mount the new turret without having to grind a duplicate gun for better stats.

Details:

  • Turret 1
    • 122mm 37-122JT
      • Reload: 14 -> 13
    • 122mm D-25T

    • 122mm D-25T
      • Removed

PREMIUM TANKS

The Tier VIII Premium heavy tanks have Preferential Matchmaking and are doing pretty well. However, we’ve improved the gun handling for each of them to account for the changes made to the Tech Tree tanks, just to help them feel a little better to play.

Chinese Tier VIII WZ-111 Heavy Tank and Chinese Tier VIII Alpine Tiger WZ-111 Heavy Tank

Details:

  • 122mm D-25T
    • Aim time: 3 -> 2.8
