Update 5.1



In Update 5.1, we are continuing with our goal to make players` lives easier. We have made some big changes: we have improved the matchmaker and made mastery badges accumulative. Continuing our work from 5.0, Spare Parts have now been fully removed from the game, and all remaining Spare Parts in players` inventories have been converted to credits.

We have also focused on improving the lives of new tankers with the goal of making them enjoy the game more and become better players—we have introduced phased access to new game features to make it easier for new players to learn and understand them.

Learn more about all the changes taking effect from July 31.

New Attachments
  • The Corporal rare attachment was introduced for Tier X French vehicles: the AMX 50 B, AMX 50 Foch (155), Bat.-Châtillon 25 t. Cost to unlock: 4,000 gold.


  • The Commander rare attachment was introduced for Tier X American vehicles: the M48A1 Patton, T110E3, T110E4, T110E5, T57 Heavy. Cost to unlock: 4,000 gold.


Accumulative Mastery Badges
Previously, players were awarded one mastery badge (Ace Tanker, Class I, Class II, Class III) per vehicle. Starting from Update 5.1, mastery badges will become accumulative, similar to medals. Statistics screens in the RECORD were changed accordingly:
  • In the Summary tab, the "Mastery badge: Ace Tanker" section was renamed "Vehicles with Ace Tanker badges". As before, this tab will show the number of vehicles with the Ace Tanker mastery badge and the total number of vehicles that participated in battles.
  • In the "Summary"> "Valuable Awards" tab, the number of Ace Tanker mastery badges will be displayed.
  • In the "Vehicles">"Awards" tab, the number of mastery badges for each vehicle will be displayed.
  • The total number of mastery badges will be displayed in the "Awards"> "All" > "Battle Hero" tab.

Easier Life for Rookies
We have set up a global change to the initial game experience aimed at familiarizing new players with the variety of features in World of Tanks Blitz. Starting from this update, new players will explore game mechanics gradually as the tier of their vehicles increases.
  • Missions and bonus containers will be available starting from Tier III.
  • The Storage will become available when the player gets a vehicle of at least Tier IV or any item, which is kept in the Storage.
  • Players will get access to the game chat when they get a vehicle of at least Tier IV or a friend request/platoon invite. The battle chat is available all the time.
  • Access to camouflages and attachments will open after the player gets a vehicle of Tier V or above. After that, the player will be able to apply camouflages and attachments to vehicles of any tier.
  • Provisions can be used for vehicles of Tier IV and above. For vehicles of Tier IV, one provision slot is unlocked, for Tier V—two slots, for Tier VI and above—three slots. Players who have previously installed provisions, which will become unavailable after the update, will get full compensation in credits.
  • For vehicles of Tier I–II, one consumable slot is unlocked, for Tier III—two slots, for Tier IV and above—three slots. Players who have previously installed consumables, which will become unavailable after the update, will get full compensation in credits.

Armored Frenchman



The new Premium AMX M4 mle. 49 breaks stereotypes! This Tier VIII heavy tank doesn`t have a drum autoloader, but it boasts very solid armor—quite uncommon for French vehicles. Check out this new tank and be the first to command it!

Bundles with the AMX M4 mle. 49 are available in the Offers tab of the Store until July 20.

Armed and Well-Armored!

The AMX M4 49 is a true heavy tank in every way. No drum autoloader, no paper-thin armor, and no high speed. The AMX M4 49 is all about thick sloped frontal armor, a solid turret, and good armament. Here are the detailed characteristics!



Looks good, right? And woe to those who confuse the AMX M4 49 with its researchable younger brother the AMX M4 45 in the heat of battle! Instead of the delicate French armor, the enemy shell will meet the rock-solid 175 mm protection.

To confidently penetrate the upper armor plate of the AMX M4 49, the enemy will need at least 230 mm of penetration capability. Less effective guns will not dent this armor or will only penetrate it once in a while if they are very lucky. The most vulnerable spot of this tank`s front armor is the lower plate. It is only 80 mm thick, so most damage will come from hits to this area.



The AMX M4 49`s frontal armor also has 150 mm "cheeks". Under ideal conditions, it is almost impossible to penetrate them, but this construction complicates angling. So if you expose your side to the enemy, you may catch a penetrating hit.

The AMX M4 mle. 49 has a solid turret with 250 mm of frontal armor—that`s enough to confront the most powerful guns. But the turret also has a weak spot: a small part of the commander`s cupola stands out above the main armor and easily takes damage. However, it`s not as easy to hit the commander`s cupola when the tank is on the move.



A solid turret is good on its own. And when accompanied by a gun with a 10-degree depression angle—it`s a dream come true! This characteristic allows the AMX M4 49 to hide not only the lower armor plate, but the entire hull. Block damage with the turret and take advantage of terrain irregularities.

The new tank is armed with the 100 mm SA47 gun familiar to many players from the AMX 50 100 "drummer". This time, the gun comes without the drum autoloader. The AMX M4 49 has a higher rate of fire than most vehicles of the same tier or type, but it deals rather moderate single-shot damage of 310 HP. However, it is compensated by a high penetration capability, which guarantees damage upon hit and a low percentage of non-penetrating hits.



The AMX M4 49 features just a little bit of the famous French maneuverability. But that`s enough for a comfortable game as this tank is heavy indeed. This 70-ton vehicle is powered by a 1,000 hp engine. It allows the AMX M4 49 to accelerate to 20 km/h in just a few seconds and reach 30 km/h in 8–10 seconds. This tank will seldom accelerate to 40 km/h, but it doesn`t actually need to to outperform its competitors by dynamics.

The AMX M4 mle. 49 is an exemplary heavy tank. Reliable protection, a balanced gun, and good maneuverability for a 70-ton vehicle make this new "Frenchman" a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield. And its increased profitability will help you substantially replenish your credit supplies after every battle.

Take command of the AMX M4 49 and try out the true French armor!
