Changes have come to a pair of Supertest vehicles, tweaking various statistics of the Soviet Tech-Tree and American Premium Tanks...

First up, the IS-3 Version II. Its "Salvo Preparation Time" has been reduced by half a second, from 3 to 2.5, allowing the vehicle to fire both cannons at once slightly quicker than before. Similarly, its "Lockout Time" post-reload has changed from 7 to 4 seconds, meaning it will be defenceless post-firing for a shorter period of time. However, the time taken to change between guns has increased, from 3.5 to 5 seconds. Finally, its hull and turret frontal armour has been increased, from 130 to 145 and 250 to 280 respectively.

Next, the M18 "Super Hellcat," a Tier VII Premium TD, has received a series of buffs to Engine Power, Accuracy and Aiming Spread, while also seeing nerfs to its Reload Time. The tank now has 550hp, where previously it had 460, thus resulting in an increase in the power/weight ratio to 27.14hp/t. The accuracy has been improved to 0.32 from 0.34, while the aiming spread from turret rotation has gone down to 0.10 from 0.16, and the hull rotation gone down to 0.23 to 0.16. Finally, its reload time has been increased from 7.67s to 8.92s, reducing the rate of fire from 7.82 rpm to 6.73, and its DPM from 1,877 to 1,615.
