Hi, I've been a lurker here for a while. I'll start shitpoasting sooner or later so here's something from Rita: http://ritastatusreport.blogspot.hk/2015/09/hd-screenshots-is-8-and-t56-gmc.html As you can see, aside from the fancy optics, the tank looks quite a bit shorter as though it got deflated somehow. The turret also got flattened and lost its turret ring weakspot. It actually looks like a Russian hovermed now, instead of a bloated abomination. I checked the new screenshots against tankinspector: it seems the frontal pike has a much better slope now, though it might be too early to tell. Another interesting tweak are the splashboards in front of the pike which make it deceptively like a WZ-111. They were there in the old model but mounted differently and not as part of the damage model. Again, might be a way to give the -8 a stealth buff. On a historical note, the new upgraded turret looks to be a different model compared to the old one: https://forum.warthunder.com/index.php?/topic/230370-t-10-heavy-tank/ It seems they used the T-10 turret and not the T-10M one, which seems kind of pointless, seeing as the T-10M was supposed to be the modernised tank.
