"In landing operations, retreat is impossible, to surrender is as ignoble as it is foolish. above all else remember that we as attackers have the initiative, we know exactly what we are going to do, while the enemy is ignorant of our intentions and can only parry our blows. We must retain this tremendous advantage by always attacking rapidly, ruthlessly, viciously, and without rest." - General George S. Patton, Jr.

- the transmission cover plate on frontal T-70 armor (the rectangular cover on the left side from your POV) is 35mm thick, just like the rest of the frontal upper plate

- in Russian 0.8.5, Sexton I did not appear in the shop. The reason is that it's not balanced properly

- when bigger maps than the current ones are introduced, the teams will
get bigger too (how much bigger is not yet decided, but more than 15 per

- it's possible there will be a new (separate, different) platoon search
engine (SS: from rough description something like the WoW dungeon

- the impact of repair skill on track repair time is not going to be changed from what it is now

- recent Malinovka re-work saw the windmill arms turning, this change will be implemented to other maps with windmills

- the devs have considered to reduce the amount of XP needed to train 4th and 5th crew skills, but decided not to do it

- Type 59 and WZ-120 are identical vehicles

- it's not yet known whether the decals will be re-worked so they on tanks after their destruction

- patch 0.9.0 is supposed to be something big, but it's secret for now

- there seems to be a new 0.8.5 low FPS issue (FPS drops 10-20 on some
computers), it's unknown when (or whether) this will be solved

- new desert and winter maps will come

- according to Storm, developers do listen to both regular players and
top known streamers, there are special people who collect the public
opinions in the developer team

- Object 263 vertical gun range has not been improved

- T-70 on supertest recieved its historical crew number (2 instead of 3)
- but the 2-man turret remained, it's completely possible that it will
be replaced in future with another turret, such as Dedkov's cast turret.

- a platoon doesn't have any extra MM weight

- if two identical tanks have a platoon, their MM will be calculated according to the "older tank in the platoon".

- Jagdpanzer 38t "Hetzer Starr" is not planned for now (SS: this
question was confusing, because the player claimed there was some sort
of Hetzer with a "105mm launcher tube". I have no idea what that is,
there was never such a project as far as I know, apart from the
rigid-mounted 105mm L/28, which was the Starr mount AFAIK, perhaps the
player was referring to PAW, but AFAIK there was no such project either,
PAW went to 38d)

- it's possible the Hetzer in game will be renamed to Jagdpanzer 38t

- apparently extra consumable giving more power to diesel engines is not planned

- it's possible IS-4 will be renamed to (historically correct) IS-4M

- metal sheets on Ersatz Panther won't be implemented as spaced armor

- 2nd branch of Sovied medium tanks won't come this year

- 2nd branch of German TD's will come this year

- 2nd branch of French TD's will come eventually

- premium tanks of the same tier have the same moneymaking coefficient,
regardless of their type (T5 premium med has the same coefficient as T5
premium TD for example)

- according to Storm, no tanks are designed primarily as gold ammo shooters

- Storm is very happy with Object 907 performance

- there are premium tier 8 medium tanks coming (SS: unclear, whether in 0.8.6 or later)

- until 0.8.6 is out, no additional arty nerf/limit is planned
