WORLD OF TANKS - CONSOLE UPDATE 3.3 "TYPHOON"

We will not be covering World of Tanks Console content often, but this is notable due to certain changes and we believe it to be worth posting, so enjoy.

NEW BRITISH TIER 10
First and foremost, WarGaming Chicago-Baltimore has announced the introduction of the Chieftain Mk.6 as a new British Tier X heavy. Surprisingly not replacing the old FV215b, so likely branching off from the Tier 9 Conqueror.



In addition, the FV4202 will be replaced by the Centurion Action X.



The following will transfer from FV4202 to Centurion Action X
- Crew and Tank XP
- Battle Stats and Marks of Excellence
- Equipment and Inscriptions and Camo

The FV4202 will now be a Tier 8 Premium tank. Anyone who owns the FV4202 at the time of the update will recieve the 4202 Premium for free as well as the Action X. Anyone who at one point owned the 4202 will recieve the premium, but must purchase the Action X with their own silver, though it will be researched already.

ARMOUR AND COMPONENT VIEWER
A welcome addition to the console version, opening the ‘Details’ tab in the garage will bring up new tank stat ratings, as well as an armor viewer and component/module viewer (seen here with the Action X)



One caveat is that these will only be available for tanks already in your garage. A bit of a bummer for those who have few tanks and are looking to gather info on a particular opponent, but should help with those looking to know their own machines better.

TWO NEW MAPS
First up, Pacific Island- Typhoon. This will be an Extreme Weather Variant, so reduced visual spotting and radio range.

The second map will be a Random Battle variant of the upcoming ‘Trench Warfare’ map for our WW1 themed game mode, introducing Thiepval Ridge…
