Recommended Posts




The last prize of the Wars of the Past Battle Path remaining to be announced is the Romanian TR-85M1 Bizonul Main Battle Tank.

In Armored Warfare, the TR-85M1 Bizonul will be a Tier 5 Premium Main Battle Tank as well as a prize of the Wars of the Past Battle Path campaign, obtainable for reaching Level 20.

But before we tell you more about it, here’s the usual disclaimer:

The numbers below are very preliminary as the vehicle has not been properly tested. They are sure to change and should only be discussed as an indicator of how we’d like to set the vehicle up.

With that being said:

The TR-85M1 will resemble other Soviet Tier 5 vehicles of the same Tier but the lack of protection will be compensated by increased mobility and firepower, giving it a slight slant towards the Light Tank class. Overall, the best tank to compare it to would be the T-55M1.

It’ll feature mediocre composite armor without any active or passive measures, but the mobility will be ensured by its 900hp engine, which is quite a lot for its 50 tons. The maximum speed will reach 60 km/h, but this will be possible to improve via additional progression. This upgrade will:

  • Increase the maximum speed to 75 km/h
  • Improve the hull traverse by 10 percent

Firepower-wise, at first glance, the 100mm gun sounds somewhat underpowered for its Tier, but aside from average penetration and damage values, it’ll also feature some interesting elements such as:

  • Improved propellant module, reducing the penetration over distance penalty
  • Two-round clip, which will be possible to upgrade via additional progression to a three-round one

And last but not least there are the stealth and spotting values, which will start, once again, on average values, but you’ll be able to upgrade them as such:

  • Thermal Imager module providing improved spotting range and the ability to spot through bushes
  • Special Tracks module providing reduced camouflage penalty for moving

In summation, the TR-85M1 Bizonul will be a mid-to-long range fire support vehicle with excellent mobility and utility values, almost like a Light Tank. It’ll come in handy in PvP, but in PvE, it’ll have to stay in the rear in order for it to remain effective.

We hope that you’ll enjoy this MBT as well as the entire Battle Path and, as always:

So after EVERY MBT armor was buffed to new level of retartadation, especially in low tiers, now they introduce a MBT with "mediocre" armor? I wonder what it will look like... By looking at some Leos, like the rest but with crap side armor?

Also, if the Obj 430 can get a 100mm with 468 dmg and 610 pen with HEAT and 510 pen 360 dmg on T4, this thing will surely be around that. (that's stupid high numbers for a 100mm ffs)

Yup, pretty much uninteresting...

The tank on this photo looks really nice



This presented work-in-progress model looks very draft

They must be running out of good tanks to add to the game. Now they are adding tanks that are consistently on the top or near the top on many "wort modern tanks" lists. What's next, the Arjun?

We could at least giggle a little when we use a certain main gun round against our enemies. :apseal:
