    Berlin: Modes available: Domination, Battle, Capture.
    Normandy: Modes available: Domination, Battle, Breakthrough, Capture.
    Hurtgen forest: Modes available: Domination, Battle, Capture.
    Changes to current locations for ground vehicles:

    Poland:
    A rocky ledge on the north-eastern area of the lake has been added.
    Minor balance changes.
    Mozdok:
    Many changes have taken place on this location. For better gameplay balance, new hills and covers have been added.
    The riverbed has been re-worked.
    Eastern Europe:
    Road to the eastern part of city has been changed.
    White Rock Fortress:
    New hills and cover has been added to increase the complexity of cross fire to the east of the fort, this originally gave an advantage to one of the teams.
    Karelia:
    Many changes on this location - increased stone cover away from western respawn point, added new entrances to the centre point, the road through the canyon.
    On the central capture point there is a new sniper position.
    Awards:

    The after-battle trophy award system has been changed. Now, players will get an active trophy, which will award a random reward after being opened:
    Trophies can contain not only silver lions, but also modifications for vehicles, including premium ones (talisman and back-ups). They can also contain discounts on premium vehicles.
    Premium modifications will be awarded for vehicles of the nation that was used during the battle they are awarded after.
    Awarded modifications will be for the vehicles used during the battle they are awarded after.
    Interface:

    Daily awards interface has been changed.
    Format of Information regarding damage to enemy ground vehicles has been changed.
    Changes to Damage Models:

    Damage calculation system for aircraft has been improved. This will take into account the type of damage more realistically.
    Improved emergency landing mechanics have been added.
    Added the ability to enable vehicle X-Ray during air battles.
    Fixed armour related bugs for the Beaufighter Mk 6c/X/21, and Spitfire MK 5b/c.
    Ammunition:

    The penetration mechanics of armour piercing and APCR shells have been changed. The penetration of all shells is now calculated through a single method: Almost all of these shells can now penetrate thicker, non-sloped armour than before, while being considerably less effective against sloped armour. Armour piercing projectiles (all types) now show the worst performance regarding the penetration of sloped armour.
    Information about the penetration of shells at different armour angles has been added below the shells tooltip.
    The amount of time that it takes for a fuel tank fire to cause an explosion has been changed. Now, it will take a set amount of time (10 - 15 sec.) before ammunition and fuel tanks may detonate from a fire in other modules. After this time has lapsed, the chance of ammunition or fuel tank explosion is higher than it previously was in 1.47.
    All high-explosive shells, that were not tracer shells in reality, no longer show a tracer effect in the game.
    The muzzle velocity of the 90mm armour-piercing shells for the M36 and M3A1 cannons have been changed to 912m/sec.
    The muzzle velocity of armour-piercing shells for German 75mm cannons with a barrel length of 43, 48 and 46 calibers have been changed. The maximum muzzle velocity is now featured by the PaK 40 (SPG Marder III).
    The visual effects of hits into the ground and on vehicles by projectiles with normal caliber rounds have been reduced.
    Fixed the amount of RS-132 rockets on the Il-2 (1941), Il-2 (1942), and Il-2M (1943).
    Fixed the ammunition selection of offensive and defensive weapons for the TBF-1c and Avenger Mk I.
    Fixed the ammunition selection of offensive weapons for the Ju-87B-2 and Ju-87R-2.

    Changes and fixes of ground vehicles:

    Corrected the thickness of the upper frontal armour of the M4A3E2 with 75mm and 76mm cannons from 25.4mm (1 inch) to 63.5mm (2.5 inch).
    The ammunition load of the Pz.III N has changed from 56 to 64 shells.
    The rotation speed of the Tiger I Ausf. H1’s turret has increased from 7.5 degree/sec to 12 degree/sec, and for the Ausf. E’s turret, 7.5 degree/sec to 14 degree/sec.
    Several characteristics of the T-35 have been updated - the thickness of the armour plates, the tank’s entire mass, and the main turret rotation speed were fixed (according to bug report information from Nikon_D3x).
    The ammunition load has been changed for the SPGs, IS-122, ISU-122S, and all modifications of the T-54.
    The time to change magazines on the M16 SPAA has been increased to 14 seconds.
    A bug on multi-turret vehicles, which allowed the continuous rotation of the turrets after the drive mechanisms had been destroyed, has been fixed.
    The ammunition load of the M41A1 has been changed from 57 to 65 shots.
    The engine power and rpm for the Ferdinant and Pz. Bfw. VI (P) have been fixed. Engine power is 530 hp at 2600rpm. The maximum speed 30km/h.
    The APCR shell ZBM-8 has been added to the ammunition selection for the T-54 1949.
    The APCR shell ZBM-8 and HEAT shell ZBK-5 have been added as selectable types of ammunition for the T-54 1951. The battle ratings of these tanks will be updated in one of the next updates.
    The HEAT shell M431 has been added to the ammunition selection for the M47.
    The armour-piercing shell M82 has been added to the ammunition selection for the M26E1 and T32.
    The fire rate of the 120mm M58 cannon has been increased from 3.6 to 4 shots per minute.
    A bug where the ammunition cartridges of DT machine guns not being full when first spawning in Soviet tanks has been fixed.
    Changes and fixes to aircraft​:

    A separate research line for British naval fighters has been added.
    All Nimrods have been transferred into the naval fighters research line. The Nimrod Mk.II is, once again, available for all to be researched.

    hi guys (im from the WoT EU forum) ive been playing WT more and have to say the M18 Hellcat/black cat and the second sea hurricane are absolute monsters.

    M18 is great either as a dogfighter or sniper - I managed to get Resosketch from distance in a sim battle - sorry

    Although best way to kill the M18 appears to be a flackpanzer. ive had 88's & 75mm's go right through the tank a few times now.

    Shoot the left side of the turret (when looking at the tank from the front) will disable the turret and if your lucky detonate any shells that are stored there.
    Otherwise shoot for the engine - m18 is a lot less dangerous when its on fire & you cannot over pen the engine block.
    Not tried HE on it yet.
    The biggest difficulty is slowing them down enough during the hellcat swarm at the start

    Hey all, I've noticed, with the new 1.7 update your AOD chat channel has probably disappeared. Please remember to join it when you log-in.

    Open your main chat box.
    Select the System tab.
    On the right, there is a Search Room box.
    Type, all capitals, AOD.
    Press enter or select the magnifying glass to search.
    AOD should appear underneath.
    Double click the search result and you're IN!

    Any issues, please let me know.
