Noticed this in the News section in game regarding update 5.9. Anybody know something more than me?

A picture of the Leo with the new camo along side the 30 b.

 

Reasonable to assume it's close to release?

Usually, when a premium tank that's never been released before is on the loading screen, it means WG is going to release it.

I would assume so.  

   But based on its current stats, it should be an interesting tank. 

 

Version 5, they raised DPM back to a 3238 rammer and both foods) - same as the STB.  

   But pen is 250 on stock APCR, and it’s prammo APCR is a rather less inspirational 255mm 

 

So it’s got less DPM than a Russian or Leo running CS, and less pen...

 

Its going to be fun, but very tricky if it doesn’t get a Prammo buff.

I thought that they gave the AMX-30B its horrid 255mm premium shell as a placeholder while they rebalanced the real shell.

We shall see...

 

We've seen the AMX 30 B go through several versions, only the first version was very good -- the DPM nerf's it took in version 2 hurt, and then in Version 3 crippled it totally.

   V4 had slightly better DPM - and now we have okay DPM, but woeful pen.

 

The issues are how to you balance a Leo fast, Patton'esque turret tank -- if left with good pen it would replace the Leo, STB and M48 in battle.

 

I'm hoping it gets a 300 Pen HEAT round - and then folks can decide to opt for CS or not -- right now, with both APCR's the CS advantage is next to none - but it will struggle with a lot of tanks with 255mm

I’m looking for a tier10 premium with medium or near light tank gameplay... this puts me on my toes.

chiefttain mk6 looks really good but sluggishness ain’t my thing anymore... that tank I’ll buy needs to withstand 1000s of game and stay exciting.

Welp, the new shell was added. It's a 295mm HEAT. That old APCR shell was a placeholder after all, as I had expected.

Source? Tank Compare is still showing the 255mm APCR shell as the Prammo. 

   It generally pulls right from game files...

hmm. Even after Server Restart Tank Compare is showing 255mm APCR Prammo 

    Wonder if someone leaked to Blitz Hangar.  

 

Admittedly 295mm HEAT works for me.  I’d prefer 300, but with its mobility 295 will work.

I think there are trouble for tank compare to get the numbers. I don’t know how blitz hangar does.

It’s in game files - so sock pulls the current numbers.  

   So I’m curious where/how TC got the new HEAT pen

Maybe the Wargaming tankopedia API?

The CDC and the M4A1 Rev are in the shop today. My bet is that we’ll see the AMX M4 49 and the AMX 30 1er in the shop next, leading up to the AMX 30 B.
