Update 1.7 - New Tank Destroyers!

It is with wide grins on our faces that we tell you Update 1.7 of World of Tanks Blitz will be available to download for free from 25 February. Please note that due to the update there will be a period of server downtime between 01:30 and 04:30 CET (UTC+1) on 25 February.

We are also grinning because the update will bring some infamous machines to the US tech-tree, specifically the Hellcat and T110E4 tank destroyers. Did you guess from our clues in the last announcement?

The Hellcat lives up to its savage name. It is stealthy and swift, scratching your hit points away with its 90mm gun. It doesn’t have any armour though - I guess that’s the price you pay for the positives it has.

Unintentionally but not inappropriately, the T110E4 sounds like a model of Terminator. If you look up “ouch” in the dictionary, all you see is a picture of its gun. Its turret is also listed as a secondary definition of the word “indestructible”, although, as any tanker knows, this machine can be brought down if its disadvantages are exploited.

Are you looking forward to more tank destroyers? Take the debate to our forums and official Facebook page.
