Latin American Ground Forces Tree


Fan-made promotional image of the tree


Hello everyone. I’d like to present a propostal for a new tech tree for War Thunder: The Latin American Ground Forces Tree (or just LATAM tree for short).

This project was made by a team of players from Latin American countries (myself included), as well as Latin American tank enthusiasts from around the world, and it provides a wide variety of interesting vehicles. It focuses on domestic designs (such as the Osório, Tamoyo and TAM), unique modernizations of foreign vehicles (such as the Tifón-2A, Firefly Repotenciado and AMX-30VE) and foreign vehicles made to a Latin American country’s specifications (such as the LTP and the PT-91P), with only a few “copy-paste” (already in the game) vehicles to fill in small gaps or to form strong lineups.

Latin America is often forgotten when it comes to the topic of ground vehicles, and the current state of War Thunder is also a reflex of that, featuring only the TAM series. This proposal also seeks to raise awareness of the community to the diverse nature of the vehicles of this tree, which would undoubtedly benefit the game a lot.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at the complete tree:




Thanks to zanju13 for the WT Tech-Tree Maker tool

Please be aware that the position of the vehicles within the tree, as well as the ranks and battle ratings are merely a suggestion made by us, to get a good sense about the tree.

The Ground Tree is made out of 14 Latin American Countries. Argentina, Brazil and Chile make up more than half of it, with the other countries complementing it.

Graph

A Brazilian Ground Tree would be incomplete, and so would an Argentinian or Chilean Ground Tree. All countries in this coalition tree complement each other almost seamlessly, something that is also noticeable on the other LATAM trees such as the Air Forces Tree (other trees coming soon!)

Check the spoilers below for a brief detail on each vehicle present in the tree. More specific information on the vehicles will be shared in this thread as the project progresses.

Rank 2

------ Armored Car Line

├ VBB-1

Viatura Blindada Brasileira 1

The VBB-1 was the pioneer in Brazilian armored car development. The M8 Greyhound was seen as a good starting point thanks to its reputation in the Brazilian Army, but the VBB-1 was designed to be simpler. Since it’s a 4x4 vehicle, that means it is lighter and faster than the 6x6 vehicles that would come after it.

Other minor subsequent upgrades include the reboring of the WW2 era Browning M1919A4 machine guns to NATO standard, and the repositioning of the Browning M2 to be used by the commander. Some M24URs also feature a dozer blade.

├ Nahuel DL.43

Nahuel Modelo Baisi 1943

The Nahuel is a remarkable achievement by the Argentinian industry during the early 1940s. Being the first tank both developed and serially produced by a Latin American country, it featured thick armor of 80mm at 55 degrees at the front, and great mobility thanks to its W12 engine outputting 493hp. Its only handicap was the 75mm L/30 Krupp cannon it uses, which is only able to penetrate approximately 57mm of armor.

Armament:
Primary: 75mm L/30 Krupp cannon

Engine: FMA Lorraine-Dietrich 12-cylinder V with 500 HP, water-cooled

M4A1E9 Sherman

Until the arrival of the M-50s and M-51s from Israel decades later, the M4A1E9 was exclusively the only variant of the Sherman to be used by Chile, aside from the armored recovery vehicle version. It’s distinct from a regular M4A1 thanks to its spaced suspension, which was made so that track grouser extenders could be fitted to both sides of the tracks (this could be implemented as a module just like Winterketten or Ostketten). It’s technically not a “copy-paste” as this specific variant is not in game yet.

I anticipate this tree.
Find a trial’d tank for 11.7+ and it looks better than Benelux.

nice job!

Peru did trial the T-90S and the MBT-2000, but those would be 10.7 at best. Norinco presented the VT-4 to the Brazilian Army last year, so that could be a candidate for 11.7. Chile is also modernizing their Leopard 2A4CHLs with help from Aselsan, and it’s been rumoured to feature new sights, APS and maybe more armor.

Let’s hope that one day it can be implemented and thus make people from Latin America also feel represented within the game, it is also a great opportunity to make Latin American developments known to other people in the world and let them know that on this side too there are unique and interesting things and above all new and fun things for the game, great job +1

Pretty concise and well-throughout tech tree layout, and only have copy-paste when it was needed or optional. And the vehicles are really interesting. +1

Almost as if the tree used 14 nations instead of 2 and a half… crazy right?
+1 anyway, as top tier isn’t everything

If I only had the Osório 120mm I would be happy, but this tree looks very interesting.

Amazing suggestion! I had a latin american tree idea but yours is better in every aspect :)

I believe the Leon 2 also gets an upgraded engine and a new FCS capable of firing APFSDS rounds: Blindados del Perú 1932-2016 by sgdelat - Issuu
Screenshot 2024-01-29 at 08.51.02

I believe also that if the penetration is listed as 750mm, then it’s the 9M117M1 specifically, which has a tandem warhead and is already in game on the BMD-4 and BMP-3.

Thanks!

Good catch. I forgot about this info. The better ATGM was something that I had considered in the past but ended up forgetting about completely. Coupled with a better engine, it should make an interesting T-55!

PS: No idea what M-43A1 and M-43A3 APFSDS rounds are, tried looking for them and couldn’t find anything lol

20 Likes

Honestly, same lmao. I’ve found absolutely nothing and I’ve tried looking pretty hard. My only idea is that it’s a local Peruvian designation for something else, maybe MECAR’s 100mm rounds? But without any info on penetration or even velocity I think we’re stuck, unfortunately.

Though I’m more a fan of the ABC concept (Argentina, Brazil, Chile), as I don’t like these huge unions of nations, I would still voice myself positively here. Rather have some form of Latin American representation than none.

A lot of copy paste for low-mid tier vehicles.

It would be hilarious if they add LATAM tech tree without ever putting servers in LATAM.

Just imagine LATAM, playing LATAM tech tree with 180-200 ping lmao.

I would like a Latin American Tech Tree, just as I would have liked a Tech Tree from the Visegrád Group (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary) unfortunately Gaijin has no interest in adding TTs made up of groups of nations.

21 Likes

Or a tree, or at least some brazilian tanks.
But please Gaijin, show a little goodwill towards the brazilians.

A massive +1 for a beautifully researched and designed tree. I looked for all my favorite LatAm creations and found them here, so no complaints. The only exception, unless I’m missing something, is the CTMS-1TB1, which besides being used by a bunch of Latin American countries would also be a rather unique light tank for Rank I with its five-round 37mm clips.

Also, when it comes to a Latin American tree, I personally believe it should be implemented with a BR ceiling like 10.3 for the moment. That way, you would end with a great Osorio/TAM/Leo2A4CHL lineup and not have to face the big boys like the Leo 2A7s or T-90Ms which this tree doesn’t really have a peer to. But looking at how Gaijin treats the Ariete, I think they’d prefer to drag the Leo 2A4CHL to 11.7 and call it a day.
