Tanks Reforged and On-Track: British Tank Destroyers

December 6, 2021

Two lines of British TDs, one massive Tanks Reforged and On-Track event! Get all the details below.

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

This time, in honor of our British Invasion season and the waves of legendary British tanks arriving in Cold War mode, we’re going all in on British TDs. Not one but two lines of vehicles, along with their Premium counterparts, have been reforged! Fans of the Death Star and the Badger, this is your moment.

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


TECH TREE VEHICLES

British Tier X FV215b 183 Tank Destroyer

Although this vehicle was recently featured in Reforged Legends, we still had some slight tweaks to do. We’ve increased the damage of the standard HE round to offset the low penetration. We’ve also decreased the penalties for moving the turret in order to reduce reticle bloom. This makes the round more viable in comparison to the Premium ammo.

Details:

  • HE damage: 1450 -> 1650
  • Turret dispersion penalties: 0.32 -> 0.28

British Tier X FV217 Badger Tank Destroyer

Recently featured in Reforged Legends, the Badger has pretty solid armor and decent mobility for an assault TD but lacks the penetrating power that other TDs have. To make up for this, it shoots more quickly, as some rounds will not penetrate their target.

To keep this persona intact, we’ve further increased the rate of fire, as the damage output was still a bit low, and also increased the penetration of Premium rounds to help in those needed situations. These changes bring the effectiveness of the gun slightly above that of the Tier IX Tortoise.

Details:

  • Reload: 9 -> 8.5
  • Premium penetration: 320 -> 330

British Tier IX Tortoise Tank Destroyer

Since Reforged Legends, this vehicle has been doing extremely well. As you’ll see with the rest of the AT line, we’ve increased the top speed to get these assault TDs into the fight a bit quicker.

Details:

  • Speed: 20 -> 25

British Tier VIII AT 15 Tank Destroyer

The AT 15 received the same speed increase made throughout the line. We’ve also updated the 20-pdr gun’s DPM to improve the grind along with the fully upgraded gun. The top gun is now competitive with the 32-pdr after the recent changes made to it.

Details:

  • Speed: 20 -> 25
  • OQF 20-pdr AT Gun Type B Barrel gun
    • Reload: 4.7 -> 4.1
  • OQF 20-pdr AT Gun Type A Barrel gun
    • Reload: 4.8 -> 4.5
  • OQF 17-pdr AT Gun Mk. VII
    • Penetration: 171/239/38 ->200/244/44

British Tier VII AT 7 Tank Destroyer

The AT 7 also received the same speed increase made throughout the line. The stock gun was removed due to its poor performance, making the 77mm gun the stock gun. The other guns also received improvements that will all help improve the grind and top performance of the vehicle.

Details:

  • Speed: 20 -> 25
  • QF 6-pdr AT Gun Mk. V
    • REMOVE
  • OQF 17-pdr AT Gun Mk. VII gun
    • Penetration: 171/239/38 ->200/244/44
  • OQF 20-pdr AT Gun Type A Barrel gun
    • Reload: 6.2 -> 6

British Tier VI AT 8 Tank Destroyer

The AT 8 received the same speed increase made throughout the line as well as the improved penetration on the 17-pdr gun, making it more effective when fully upgraded.

Details:

  • Speed: 20 -> 25
  • OQF 17-pdr AT Gun Mk. VII
    • Penetration: 171/239/38 ->200/244/44

British Tier VI Churchill Gun Carrier Tank Destroyer

This TD was generally doing well. However, the restricted gun movement made it difficult to play, so we’ve addressed that.

Details:

  • Yaw limits: -5/5 -> -9/9

British Tier V AT 2 Tank Destroyer

The AT 2 received the same speed increase made throughout the line, but otherwise it does well at its tier.

Details:

  • Speed: 20 -> 25

British Tier X FV4005 Stage II Tank Destroyer

Although this vehicle was recently featured in Reforged Legends, we still had some slight tweaks to do. We’ve increased the damage of the standard HE round to offset the low penetration and decreased the penalties for moving the turret in order to reduce reticle bloom. We’ve also increased the speed a little to help with survivability and lack of armor.

Details:

  • HE damage: 1450 -> 1650
  • Turret dispersion penalties: 0.3 -> 0.26
  • Speed increase
    • Forward: 35 -> 38
    • Reverse: 12 -> 14

British Tier IX FV4004 Conway Tank Destroyer

The Conway also was featured in Reforged Legends, but we still saw that it could use additional improvements. We’ve increased the unusually low ammo capacity of these guns, so you’ll now be able to carry a better mix of ammo and have enough to last the battle. We’ve also increased the gun handling a bit to give a slight boost to the weapon’s effectiveness as well as increasing the vehicle’s health.

Details:

  • 120 mm AT Gun L1A1 gun
    • Ammo: 35 -> 50
  • B.L. 5-5in. gun
    • Ammo: 30 -> 40
    • Accuracy: 0.38 -> 0.36
    • Aim Time: 2.4 -> 2.3
  • Health: 1500 -> 1600

British Tier VIII Charioteer Tank Destroyer

We’ve increased the unusually low ammo capacity of these guns, so you’ll now be able to carry a better mix of ammo and have enough to last the battle. Both 20-pdr guns received improved DPM to help with the grind as you make your way to the powerful 105mm gun.

Details:

  • 105 mm AT Gun L7 gun
    • Ammo: 30 -> 50
  • OQF 20-pdr AT Gun Type B Barrel gun
    • Ammo: 35 -> 60
    • Reload: 6.3 -> 5.5
  • OQF 20-pdr AT Gun Type A Barrel gun
    • Ammo: 35 -> 60
    • Reload: 6.6 -> 5.8

British Tier VII Challenger Tank Destroyer

We’ve improved the RoF on the stock gun with the middle gun receiving improved penetration. These changes will improve the grind as you make your way to the powerful 32-pdr.

Details:

  • Turret 1
    • OQF 17-pdr AT Gun Mk. II
      • Reload: 4.5 -> 4.4
  • Turret 2
    • OQF 17-pdr AT Gun Mk. II
      • Reload: 4.3 -> 3.9
  • OQF 17-pdr AT Gun Mk. VII gun
    • Penetration: 171/239/38 ->200/244/44

British Tier VI Achilles Tank Destroyer

We’ve improved the RoF on the stock gun to increase damage output and also gave the top gun improved penetration to make them more formidable on the battlefield.

Details:

  • Turret 1
    • 3-inch AT Gun M7
      • Reload: 3.1 -> 2.8
  • Turret 2
    • 3-inch AT Gun M7
      • Reload: 3.2 -> 2.7
  • OQF 17-pdr AT Gun Mk. VII
    • Penetration: 171/239/38 ->200/244/44

British Tier V Archer Tank Destroyer

Its top gun received the same penetration improvements made throughout the line for this gun. The tank should be more effective once fully upgraded with this change. Because it now has such excellent penetration for its tier, the reload was slightly adjusted to maintain balance.

Details:

  • OQF 17-pdr AT Gun Mk. VII
    • Penetration: 171/239/38 ->200/244/44
    • Reload: 4.7 -> 5

PREMIUM VEHICLES 

British Tier VIII Vindicator Charioteer Tank Destroyer

We’ve increased the unusually low ammo capacity of these guns, so you’ll now be able to carry a better mix of ammo and have enough to last the battle. The gun also received a much better RoF and improved accuracy to bring its effectiveness closer in line to where it should be.

Details:

  • Ammo: 35 -> 60
  • Reload: 6 -> 5.2
  • Accuracy: 0.34 -> 0.32

British Tier VIII Diamondback Mk. 1 Tank Destroyer and
British Tier VIII Terrapin Mk. 1 Tank Destroyer

These tanks suffered from low-penetrating guns, which held them back from being as effective as they should be. With the new values, you should be able to make your shots count and start racking up the damage.

Details:

  • Speed: 20 -> 25
  • Penetration: 224/253/54 -> 243/285/54

British Tier VII AT 15A Tank Destroyer

The AT 15A received the same speed increase made throughout the line, but otherwise it does well at its tier due to its preferential matchmaking.

Details:

  • Speed 20 -> 25
