Fine tuning the French tanks before their final release.

If you want to know what was introduced/tested in the previous Public Test you can check our previous announcement article. Just a few reminders, as always. You must be registered before the 28th of May in order to take part in the test. Any experience or credits earned during this period won’t be transferred to your main account (you will have access to your tanks though), but neither will any costs. You cannot buy any gold, but you will receive 15,000 gold for testing purposes. So, in case you feel like testing out the new Premium tanks, or checking out the new Camo Schemes, you have the opportunity now.
