Tanks Reforged and On-Track: Leopard 1

July 4, 2022

Tanks Reforged is back, taking on German mediums, various Premium tanks, and more!

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

And make no mistake: After a month-long hiatus, this initiative is back in full force! For the return edition of Tanks Reforged, the team has decided to update the iconic tanks in the World War II Leopard 1 line along with several Premium vehicles AND vehicles with guns that appeared to be underperforming.

Take a look at the rebalancing details below to start. Then continue reading to see how to make the Tech Tree vehicles yours with On-Track.


TECH TREE VEHICLES

German Tier X Leopard 1 Medium Tank

The Leopard 1 is a cross between a light and medium tank that is best played from a distance. To help it fit into this role a bit better, we’ve increased its top speed, making it one of the fastest Tier X mediums.

Being able to move and shoot is an important part of the tank’s effectiveness due to its lack of armor, so a substantial improvement was made to its gun handling when moving.

Details:

  • Forward speed: 65 -> 68
  • Chassis
    • Dispersion during movement: 0.14 -> 0.08
    • Dispersion during rotation: 0.14 -> 0.08
  • APCR
    • Shell speed: 1,478 -> 1,500
  • HEAT
    • Shell speed: 1,173 -> 1,200
  • HE
    • Shell speed: 1,172 -> 1,200

German Tier IX Leopard Prototyp A Medium Tank

Similar to the Leopard 1, we’ve improved the Leopard Prototyp A’s move-and-shoot capabilities and also increased the damage from the Kanone to improve the stock performance. Fully upgraded, this tank’s performance is doing well, but it’ll benefit from the chassis dispersion improvements.

Details:

  • Turret 1
    • 9cm Kanone
      • Damage: 240/240/320 -> 280/280/370
      • Reload: 6 -> 7
    • 10,5cm L7A1
      • Aim time: 2.9 -> 2.3
      • Accuracy: 0.36 -> 0.34
      • Reload: 13 -> 11
  • Turret 2
    • 9cm Kanone
      • Damage: 240/240/320 -> 280/280/370
      • Reload: 6 -> 6.7
  • Chassis 1
    • Dispersion during movement: 0.18 -> 0.14
    • Dispersion during rotation: 0.18 -> 0.14
  • Chassis 2
    • Dispersion during movement: 0.16 -> 0.12
    • Dispersion during rotation: 0.16 -> 0.12

German Tier VIII Indien-Panzer Medium Tank

The L/56 stock gun was removed, as it was just a bad gun for this tier. Players now will start off with the L/71 gun, allowing them to be competitive from the first battle.

The Kanone received the same damage improvements as it received at Tier IX along with overall better DPM.

Details:

  • 8,8cm Kw.K. 36 L/56
    • Removed
  • 9cm Kanone
    • Damage: 240/240/320 -> 280/280/370
    • Reload: 7.2 -> 7.5
  • Chassis 1
    • Dispersion during movement: 0.2 -> 0.18
    • Dispersion during rotation: 0.2 -> 0.18
  • Chassis 2
    • Dispersion during movement: 0.18 -> 0.16
    • Dispersion during rotation: 0.18 -> 0.16

German Tier VII VK 30.02 (D) Medium Tank

We’ve removed the stock gun so that players start off with a solid, functional weapon to use.

Details:

  • Turret 1
    • 7,5cm Kw.K. 40 L/48
      • Removed
  • Turret 2
    • 7,5cm Kw.K. 40 L/48
      • Removed
    • 10,5cm Kw.K. L/28
      • Accuracy: 0.55 -> 0.53

GUN CHANGES

While we’re at it…

The following vehicles are having their stock guns removed due to poor performance. We didn’t want to delay making these changes, so we’re addressing them now for the benefit of players who might be working on these lines.

There were also some additional improvements made while making these adjustments.

Soviet Tier IX Object 704 Tank Destroyer

Details:

  • 152mm ML-20SM mod. 1944
    •  Removed

French Tier X Bat.-Châtillon 25 t Medium Tank

We’ve added an additional two clips’ worth of ammo.

Details:

  • 90mm F3
    • Removed
  • 100mm SA47
    • Max Ammo: 42 -> 54
  • 105mm mle. 57 (D. 1504)
    • Max Ammo: 30 -> 40

Czechoslovakian Tier VIII TVP VTU Koncept Medium Tank

We’ve also made some general gun performance improvements, as this tank needed a bit more than just the stock gun removal.

Details:

  • Turret 1
    • 8,8cm vz. 37N
      • Removed
    • 10,5cm vz. 39N
      • Reload: 11.5 -> 11
  • Turret 2
    • 8,8cm vz. 37N
      • Removed
    • 10,5cm vz. 39N
      • Accuracy: 0.4 -> 0.38
      • Reload: 11 -> 10.5
    • 8,8cm vz. 41N
      • Accuracy: 0.37 -> 0.35
      • Reload: 7 -> 6.8

PREMIUM VEHICLES

German Tier VIII leKpz M 41 90 mm Light Tank and
German Tier VIII Höllenhund leKpz M 41 90 mm Light Tank

These lights were a bit sluggish compared to the competition, so their engine horsepower has been increased for a much better power/weight ratio.

Details:

  • Continental AOS-895-3
    • Horsepower: 500 -> 680
    • Power/weight: 21.28 -> 28.94

American Tier VIII M41B Brazilian Bulldog Light Tank

The Brazilian Bulldog was in need of the same horsepower increase as the tanks above, as they’re very similar vehicles with slightly different guns.

Details:

  • Saab-Scania DS-14A 04
    • Horsepower: 510 -> 680
    • Power/weight: 21.82 -> 29.09

German Tier VIII M48A2 Räumpanzer Medium Tank and
German Tier VIII Dread Dozer M48A2 Räumpanzer Medium Tank

The extra armor on each of these tanks is easily bypassed by the very large turret cupola. The same changes made to the cupola on the other Pattons have been brought to these tanks.

They’ve also received the same damage increase, penetration, and accuracy for the 9cm gun, so they can be more competitive while still having a lower DPM, due to the armor advantages.

Details:

  • 9cm Kanone M41
    • Penetration: 205/255/45 -> 212/259/45
    • Damage: 240/240/320 -> 280/280/370
    • Accuracy: 0.42 -> 0.38
  • Turret
    • Cupola main body: 76.2mm -> 165mm
    • Cupola gun mantlet: 139.7mm -> 180mm

German Tier VIII Panzer 58 Mutz Medium Tank

The Panzer 58 Mutz has received increased health compared to the Wraith to make up for its lack of spaced armor protection. It also had its handling while moving improved due to its higher speed.

The damage of the 9cm Kanone has been increased to match the changes made to the Tech Tree vehicles.

Details:

  • Health: 1300 -> 1400
  • 9cm Kanone
    • Damage: 240/240/320 -> 280/280/370
    • Accuracy: 0.36 -> 0.34
  • Chassis
    • Dispersion during movement: 0.18 -> 0.16
    • Dispersion during rotation: 0.18 -> 0.16

German Tier VIII Wraith Panzer 58 Medium Tank

Because the Wraith has protection from its spaced armor, it received just the 9cm Kanone improvements.

Details:

  • 9cm Kanone
    • Damage: 240/240/320 -> 280/280/370
    • Accuracy: 0.36 -> 0.34
