[WoT] In Development: Vol. 5

With the "soviet" 7.3 update fast approaching live EU and US servers (RU release has just taken place while you still have some time to grin IS-4 :)),

the development team is now switching its focus to the next step, namely 7.4 update. The upcoming update is supposed to be more than just a content patch.

While the exact content and features for the next update, which is 7.4, is still to be finalized and extended.
  1. Extension of French tech tree

      • Lorraine 155 (50)
      • Lorraine 155 (51)
      • Bat. Chatillon 155 (features cassette reloading or autoloader)
    • TDs:

    • Airport/Airfield. The map features airport located in the desert.
In addition to that we can expect a bunch of new premiums available for supertesters only until 7.5. 

Also at this stage a lot of work is being done on the following stuff:
      • multiple UI improvements, especially the design of tank trees
      • new camo patterns
      • new game modes - Assault and Counter battles, both entered the final production stage
      • new sound effects
      • improvements to the current team damage reimbursement mechanics
The updates of the 7.4 current status will be provided closer to its release date.
