Beware the Dragon

18.01.2013

Wargaming today announced that Update 8.3 for its massively popular MMO action game World of Tanks is now live, complete with the addition of a brand new nation, the Chinese.

The game’s latest evolution adds 17 steel machines used by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army in the mid-20th century warfare.

The lower tiers of the new tech tree feature a hotchpot of various foreign designs, including the first Japanese-made tank in the game — the Type 2597 Chi-Ha. Heavy Soviet influences are reflected in the top-tier tanks, which also include a number of original Chinese models, some of which never went into mass production.

Decent armor, impressive mobility and accurate guns with high damage potential make the Chinese tanks fearsome opponents to face off.
