Have you been wondering what nation will be added next to World of Tanks? Wonder no longer – we can reveal that it will be Japan.

The new Japanese tech tree will initially have two branches, with a total of nine medium and five light tanks. Models will include the fabled Chi-Ri prototype, the first Japanese post-war design Type 61, the light Type 95 Ha-Go and the medium variants of the Chi-Ha. The Tier X medium tank will be the prototype of the ST-B, which was developed in the late 1950s.



The introduction of Japanese tanks allows us to explore the design and innovation of a number of legendary armored vehicles and give players the chance to experience their technological evolution throughout the mid-20th century,” said World of Tanks Producer Mikhail Zhivets. “Tank models based on original designs of Japanese engineers will offer players a wide selection of authentic upgrade schemes, each tailored for particular combat objectives.”

Japan will be the seventh nation to be introduced into World of Tanks and will be implemented in an upcoming patch. For now we can just tickle your fancy with screenshots and the proposed tech-tree!
