[Coming Soon] T-55AMD-1 Platoon: Active Protection!

This new platoon for the USSR at rank VIII will be led by the first tank in the game with an active protection system!

T-55AMD-1 Platoon (Rank VIII)

T-55AMD-1

The T-55AMD-1 is a modernization of the T-55A featuring the “Drozd” hard-kill active protection system. Active Protection Systems (APS) are automated defense systems that counter missiles and shells flying at low speed towards the tank.

The “Drozd” APS featured on the T-55AMD-1 includes 8 launchers on the sides of the turret. This device is capable of defending against ATGMs and even some APDS approaching the tank head-on – the charges will fire towards the incoming projectile and detonate it at a distance of about 7m from the tank.

In War Thunder mobile, the T-55AMD-1 will be one of the most notable vehicles at rank VIII. It’s well-protected against ATGM carriers. Additionally, this tank has reinforced composite protection at the upper front part of the hull!

The available shells include a very effective HE and good APFSDS shell, as well as an ATGM. The only noticeable disadvantage of this tank is its slow reverse speed — it won’t be possible to quickly reverse behind cover after a shot.


This excellent tank will be accompanied by reliable teammates who will cause a lot of trouble for your opponents.

Object 685

The experimental Object 685 continued the concept of light amphibious tanks. This light mobile vehicle that features a 100 mm gun, automatic loader and good protection for its class will be an excellent choice for quickly capturing points or setting up sniper ambushes in the most unexpected places for the enemy!

IT-1

The mass-produced IT-1 “Dragon” is one of the most interesting representatives of ATGM carriers in the game. Instead of a tank gun, an anti-tank missile launcher is mounted on the turret! Thanks to this, the IT-1 can easily hide its low hull behind cover, and its armor will protect against serious damage.

ZSU-37-2

The experimental ZSU-37-2 “Yenisei” self-propelled anti-aircraft vehicle features a pair of high-firing 37mm autocannons, dangerous against both aircraft and enemy armored vehicles. These guns can easily cope with light tanks, and can destroy most main battle tanks when shooting at the side of the hull.


The T-55AMD-1 Platoon (Rank VIII) will be available from the Big Trophy of the Tank Campaign or from an offer after the start of the Season.
