you know how the Insider confirmed that the event in September will be a Chaffee race? Well, damn, he was right again :) In 9.3 test patch, new tank “Chaffee Sport” was implemented.
The vehicle seems to have no real armor model, but it seems the race will involve shooting, as the gun is properly modelled, so what I think will happen is that the vehicle will not have any armor model per se, just a “hitbox” and a healthpool and evey hit will take off 50 hitpoints from the tank. Here are its characteristics:
Track hitpoints: 250 (it will require cca 5 rounds to destroy tracks)
Hull traverse: 60 deg/s
Weight: 9,68 tons
Power-to-weight: 103 hp/t (it means instant acceleration pretty much)
Terrain resistance: 0,35/0,35/0,35
Gun: 75mm M17 Sport
Reload: 3,3 secs
Aimtime: 1,7 secs
Gold shells are sold for 1 gold, they travel much faster.
