Although, out of all of these. The Second to the right is my favorite. The others look good also.

We actually didn't show all of them, there's six variants in total.

We just thought 4 was a nice number of tanks for a render.

You'll see them all if you guys start playing China with a side of spam. Our tweaks for the upcoming patch should encourage this more.

Battlemaster is family of two tanks, hmm? And these two other variants, they have identical chassis like these four (2 versions), or they are unique (third chassis variation)?

Like a Type 59 and Type 69. Nice. My favorites out of these are the later two, with the fuel tanks on the back.

Indeed; These will add some nice variety to the Battlemaster.

The second one from the right (With the machine gun and fuel drums) is my favourite. :D

You should give the Chinese T-34-85 instead, if the "number" is all that you care.

I don't understand, what are the differences?
One has machine gun as far as I can tell, but what are the others?

V.Metalic Jun 23 2012, 12:44pm replied:

The two on left and two on right has different chassis, and the number of hatches. Also, one has the "machine gun" (I think its missile launcher), and one has one opened hatch. Also, the two chassis variants also ahs little different object on the sides of turrets, the housecolor objects.

The Battlemaster is actually based on the Type 59 (Chinese-copied T-54A).

Timgao929 Oct 14 2012, 8:18pm replied:

NO, they are based the type-88, which is something of Chinese origin. The Type 59's production was stopped in 1980's and there is no reason to start it again. Their real world equivalent would be type 96, which are both being cheap and capable of fighting M1A1 Abrams (Crusader tanks in game) tanks.

Better take out dat black thing on top of the battlemaster and make one upgrade to use it as an AA weapon with long reload time(to not fully protect it from gunships).The name should be Tiger Claw missile launcher or something else.

The Battlemaster is the bread and butter of Chinese gameplay. They are cheap, well rounded and have great firepower under the effect of Horde bonus. In order to add some diversity to these numerous vehicles, we've added a number of visual variants, too. Can you feel the thunderous roar of approaching armor, General?
