Planned Battle Rating changes for January 2024

and 2s6 got thermal and 8 shot missile in one round it should 11.3 least


That is true, the Mig-29G’s radar is very irritating to use in comparison but you get better flight performance. I’m not sure, I don’t think it would be egregious if it stayed at 12.3 particularly if the F-15’s are going to stay there.

The lack of CM’s is a big thing, you can’t really take mixed CM’s and expect to flare off AIM-9M’s.

That could be very good

Bmp 2m on 10.0 is a joke rn


It doesn’t make sense. It’s slow compared to most of the vehicles, and the Chieftain Marksmen is already 8.3, why push up yet another SPAA to the same BR?

Many poor decisions as usual
T20 should stay at 6.0


Doesn’t have the firepower or armour for 6.0. It’s decidedly worse than the T25 but better than the M4A3 76, 6.0 is perfect.

T95 should stay at 7.0



AMX-10P should stay 5.3


relatively low RPM, it was perfect at 5.3. It’s no R3.

AMX-13 DCA should be 4.7, not 5.0


It’s a good SPAA but not that good.

AML-90s should stay at 7.3


In no way equal to LRF Ikv 91. 7.3 was fine.

AMX-13 FL-11 should stay at 4.0


Insufficient firepower for 4.3.

French 7.7s going to 8.0 should stay 7.7


They’re not that good, having only solid shot. Other French vehicles going up is fine.

Me 410s should stay at respective BRs


Fast and decently agile vehicles with great armament, not needing a BR decrease.

PB4Ys should stay at respective BRs


Well-defended bombers with heavy payloads and a strong airframe, there’s no need for a BR decrease.

MiG-29SMT should stay at 12.3


Worse flight performance and missile loadout than Su-27.

Barak II should stay at 12.3


Heavier F-16C with weaker engine.

And now urgent missing BR changes
(groups are vehicles that all need changed together to be balanced)

Top tier ground decompression

F-15s to 12.7


Extremely fast, well-armed aircraft with good maneuverability.

F-104s except A/C, G (China) -.3BR
F-104G (China) -.7 BR or add countermeasures
G (Italy) add 2x AIM-9J


Completely lacking in maneuverability. They’re fast, but not extraordinarily so. They also have armaments unimpressive for the BR. The Chinese F-104G hasn’t flares like the rest, and the Italian G is bizarrely locked to 2x AIM-9J.

Panzer IV Gs to 3.7
Panzer IV Hs to 4.3


The KwK 40 is a great gun, nearly on-par with the 76mm M1. The G has significantly better armour than the F2, though it’s still not great. The H is rather similar in armour, mobility, and firepower to the M4A1 (76) yet it’s 1.3 lower??? The J has a hand-cranked turret which makes it balanced at 3.7.

Jagdpanzer IV to 4.7


Excellent armour, good mobility, good firepower. It’s certainly better than the Hetzer and at least equal to the M43 75/46.

Do 335B-2 to 5.0


Not sure why this is 1.0/1.3 over its TT counterparts.

KV-1 ZiS-5 to 4 3


Lacks the firepower to fight many 4.7s let alone 5.7s.

L-62 ANTI-II to 3.0


Very strong SPAA especially in an anti-tank role. Much better overall than the similarly armed trucks at the same BR.

All up by .3


Exceptional engine performance provides excellent climb rate and speed on top of good manueverability and armament. The 89B is a direct upgrade over the D.

M36s up by .3


90mm M3 is an excellent gun, far better than the 76mm M1. With similar armour and mobility to the M4 76s, the M36 and M36B1 deserve at least the same BR. The M36B2 with HEAT-FS is even better, being a close counterpart to the M-51.

Tiger IIs except P
Obj. 268
All to 7.0
Su-122-54 to 7.7
M103, Conq to 8.0
AMX-50 Foch to 7.7


These vehicles all have exceptional armour and firepower without a huge lack of mobility. Most Tiger IIs are obviously significantly better than the P, the Jagdtiger is definitely better than the Ferdinand, the T34 has the best armour, mobility, and firepower of any 6.7 heavy, and the 268 is extremely well protected with good mobility. The Tortoise is iffy but seems like it would warrant moving along with the other super-heavies around the BR. Su-122-54 has HEAT-FS, APDS, a good reload, ~156mm LoS armour, rangefinder, good mobility, low profile, and 14.5mm MGs.
M103 and Conq have HEAT-FS and APDS+stabilizer as well as great armour and good mobility. They are both more similar to the T-10M than Maus or IS-4 IMO. They offer much more powerful cannons and much more protected turrets over the M48 and Caernarvon that share their hulls and BRs. The Foch offers >300mm LoS armour frontally (more than the T95!), great mobility, an exceptional 120mm cannon, a 15mm mg, and rangefinder. It doesn’t deserve to be the same BR as the IS-3, only .3 higher than the T95 (and Jagdtiger, 268, etc).

T-44-100 to 7.3


Excellent firepower, mobility, and armour. More similar to the T-54s than 85mm T-44. Significantly better than Panther II or M46.

TO-55 to 8.3


Twin-plane stabilized, well armoured MBT with good firepower at 8.0? It’s literally just a T-55. Less ammo, sure, but no one packs full anyways.

Magach 5 to 8.3


M111 at 8.0. It’s just an M48A2 GA2 with ERA but at a lower BR, they should both be 8.3.

Type 87 RCV (P), Type 87 RCV, VBCI-2 MTC30 -.3


These vehicles don’t have the firepower to compete with conventional IFVs or armoured cars and offer minimal mobility advantage. The VBC is excluded from this list as it is moderately well-protected for the BR and has advanced systems that make it more competitive.

All 17pndr/77mm equipped vehicles excluding Centurions, Archer up by .3
M4 FL-10 to 5.3
M4A4 SA50 to 5.3
ARL-44 to 5.7


17pndr has exceptional penetration, on par with KwK42 and 90mm M3. Yet Fireflies are currently 1.0 lower than M4A3 (76)??? Centurions 1 and 2 are balanced at their higher BRs, and Archer is such a glass cannon it doesn’t matter much. SA50 is even more powerful, being closer in penetration to the KwK43 than 76mm M1! The ARL-44 has excellent armour, good mobility, and a decently fast-firing gun that can comfortably UFP Panthers.

Me 262A-1a to 6.7


Just not a great aircraft. Slow, with poor acceleration and prohibitively low-velocity cannons. See here.

SU-100s to 6.3


Firepower is extremely similar to Jagdpanther. While armour is slightly lower, the better mobility (especially reverse rate) and lower profile makes up for it.

T-72A/M1, ZTZ96 to 9.7


Exceptional armour and firepower with good mobility. Shouldn’t be fighting T-55As and M60A1s.

PUMA to 9.7 or add working AHEAD


IFV with only a cannon at the same BR as IFVs with tandem and top attack ATGMs. Mobility isn’t great, and armour doesn’t stand up to anything more than autocannon fire from other IFVs. I’d have it at 9.3 alongside the CV9030 but 9.7 like the CV9040 is acceptable.

OF-40 to 8.3


It’s a slightly better armoured Leopard 1 with LRF. 8.3 or Leo 1 to 7.7.

Leo A1A1 to 8.7 or add DM33
TAM to 9.0
TAM 2IP to 9.3


A1A1 has terrible armour, mediocre firepower, decent mobility, and poor gun handling for 9.0. TAM is more mobile, with LRF, better gun handling, and its front engine provides better survivability. TAM 2IP adds more armour and DM33 to that.

ZBD86 to 8.0


This BMP variant quietly has 800mm pen tandem ATGM at the same BR as the rest of the family.

All 20pndr equipped vehicles excluding Cent Mk 3, Strv 81, and Caernavorn +.3


20pndr has better flat pen than the L7 and a slightly faster fire rate, but lower sloped pen. The Cent Mk 3 and its Swedish copy and the Caernarvon are fine and balanced, but every other Cent is a direct and significant upgrade in armour and/or mobility over the Mk 3. The 4202 is slightly more mobile than the Mk 3 with only slightly worse armour. The Charioteer offers MBT-level firepower with great mobility and non-terrible survivability, yet it’s a disproportionately lower BR than light tanks like the leKPz 41 or C13 T90.

JPz 4-5 to 7.0


MUCH more mobile than the ASU-85 and better protected than the M56. It’s a Ru-251 without the turret. Quite uncharacteristic for a TT vehicle to be undertiered compared to a premium.

2S6 to 11.0


Excellent missiles and 4x 30mm guns.

Strv-103A, Strv 103-0 to 8.7
Strv-103C to 9.0


Long gone are the days these were uncontrollable wiggle-wobblers. Now they aim as easily as a normal tank. With LRF, 4 second autoloader, armour that shatters or deflects almost anything, and excellent ammunition these vehicles are extremely broken on anything but urban maps.

Finally, BR changes with minor model changes I’d like to see
XM-1s add M774, to 9.7


Extremely mobile tanks with thermals and LRF, very strong for 9.3. However, lacking firepower for 9.7. M774 is realistic and would address those issues. Yes, I have both XM-1s and the Chrysler is not significantly less protected than the GM.

MiG-23MLD add R-73, to 11.7


ML and MLA are some of the strongest 11.3s, and the MLD is a direct upgrade with better maneuverability and RWR. However, it would struggle at 11.7 with R-60Ms. Allowing the historically accurate carriage of 2x R-73 instead of 4x R-60M would make a very well rounded and well-balanced 11.7 fighter, differentiating the MLD from the ML and making it no longer just a better MLA at the same BR.

Gepard 1A2 add AHEAD, to 10.3


2x 9.7 SPAA is redundant and Gepard is missing its AHEAD munitions. AHEAD is air-burst shrapnel, taking data from the tracking radar to program the airburst range. Essentially it’s VT with a bit better damage that only works on the tracked target.

T-54 (1949) remove 3BM-8, to 7.7


Poor mobility and gun handling. Removing the 1967 3BM-8 and lowering the BR would make a more well-rounded vehicle, flesh out the 7.7 lineup, and be more historically accurate. See here.

Leopard 40/70 add HE-VT, to 7.7


Would allow the 40/70 to be more of an actual SPAA instead of a tank destroyer while providing Italy with longer-range air defense.

MiG-21S add option to replace gun with SPS-141, R-13M, to 10.0
MiG-21SPS-K add APU-60-2, to 10.0
MiG-21PFM add APU-13-2, R-13M, to 9.7
MiG-19PT add R-13M, to 9.7
R-13M for all other R-3S carriers except MiG-21F-13 and MiG-17AS


21S is an extremely capable airframe with R-3Rs that are exceptional in head-ons and dominate a BR without RWR or frequent countermeasures. It’s handicapped by poor IR missiles and no countermeasures itself. R-13Ms and SPS-141 make a more balanced, capable, and well-rounded vehicle.
SPS-K is similar, though with a bit worse engine. APU-60-2 is apparently historical, and would make for a similarly powerful vehicle with great missile options.
PFM is a significant upgrade over the F-13, though would struggle at 9.7 with only 2x R-3S. Giving it historical capability of 4x R-3S or 2x R-13M would make for a more balanced and well-rounded vehicle.
MiG-19S is a good 9.3, and the PT is a direct upgrade. However, as above, it’d struggle with 2x R-3S at 9.7. R-13M would make a more well-rounded and balanced vehicle.
R-13M was produced in far, far larger numbers than the M1 and unlike its brother was actually exported. It should be in-game and might make a good stock missile for the 21bis. With vehicles except those already discussed, it’d obviously not be the top missile and wouldn’t affect BR.

F-4F add AIM-9L, AGM-65D/G, to 11.0


Historical armaments. With decompression the argument of avoiding uptiers to top tier by nerfing armament is no longer valid. See here.

F-111A add AIM-9E, AIM-9J, M117R, to 10.7


F-111A is an exceptional bomber hamstringed by a lack of A2A capabilities. 9E/J is historical and would make a more well-rounded and balanced vehicle. See here.

Leo 2A4s add DM33, to 10.7
M1 add M833, to 10.7
T-72B (1989) to 10.3
TURMS-T to 10.3
T-80B add Kontakt-1, to 10.7
ZTZ-96A, 96A (P) to 10.3
Vickers Mk 7 add gen 2 thermals, to 10.7


Decompression 9.3-10.3. 10.3s would generally struggle in uptiers against 11.3 and 11.7, espeically in terms of firepower, so each has received a buff. 2A4s and M1 are missing their primary historical round. Vickers is missing its gen 2 sights. This one might need a bit more buff, perhaps in reload rate. T-80B with Kontakt would technically be a T-80BV, so it would be a BMP-1/1P situation. B '89 and TURMS are direct upgrades over the standard T-72B, as are the ZTZ-96As, introducing thermals, better ERA, and/or better ammunition.

F-5C remove countermeasures, to 10.0


Countermeasures are fictional. Removing them would allow a lower BR where AIM-9E would be more effective while making the vehicle more realistic.



Just make it the right tank ffs

MiG-29, MiG-29A add R-73/E, remove R-27ER/ER1


R-27ER dominates BVR at the moment. Especially when the MiG-29s fight aircraft without PD radars or all-aspect missiles that allow them to fight at low altitude this is a problem. Swapping R-27ER capability for R-73 would not make a huge difference in overall performance but would help 11.0s and 11.3s greatly. With the R-73 entering service several years before the ER and Germany never using ERs, these aircraft would also be more accurate. See here.


Server statistics

Gaijin seems to dislike british aircraft entirely so i doubt the late spits will ever be usable same goes for the missing boost pressure on quite a few british props like the sea fury which at minimumshould at least gets its 9.5lb boost to 2560hp


C1 Ariete 11.3-11.0 (Unless reload buff and armour fix)
Lackluster everything except round and gun handling

Ariete PSO 11.3-11.0 (Unless same as above)
Same as above

Ariete AMV 11.7-11.0 (Unless above mentioned)
More of a sidegrade than an upgrade compared to the other top tier mbts

Otomatic 11.3-10.3
Glory days are over its no longer what it used to be. Maybe 11.0 with unlimited APFSDS but 10.3 as it currently is

Stela 9.3-10.0
Big improvement over most other 9.3-7 Spaa

General: ground decompressed to 12.7 same as aircraft because now we are a full br under top tier Air


now J8F go to 11.7? so J8F=F16A/F14B right? how about F14A? gaijin what are you thinking? and Mirage4000 go to 12.7 but all F15 dont? you really think F15 is weaker than M4K? next is Mig29G, so KH29T*2>nearly 3tons weight


dont mind it personally. Its the plane with the most short range IRCCM missiles on it, and its pretty fucking good. Saying its on par with a 2000 5f just because it lacks HMD isnt fair, it has to be higher then that the 5f.

Agreed. It’s got limited elevation, and is no better than the R3.

No idea why it goes up. It’ll be up against vehicles with thermals and stabilizers, with a HEAT round that detonates on a blade of grass or bush on the map.


Yeah everything with a Griffon engine can have its pressure increased selectably. I’m doing a post at the moment about the Mk.23 prototype which was a Mk.18 with a new wing and the pressure rating increased to provide more HP.

Because of the next changes, France is now rely on the cckw 353 aa from br 2.3 to 5.0. AMX 13DCA 40 shouldn’t be at 5.0 br


fuck me, gaijin just say already you hate france, no way in the fucking world a bat 25t is the same as a fucking object 906 it has worse rounds, a worse reload, is slower and has no stab. Like wtf.

Also the amx13 fl11 as 4.3 is silly, it has no br, no advantages over the chaffe. Dead vehicle.

SOmua and AMx50 being moved to 8.0 is also silly

The AML 90 being moved to 7.7 is so dumb, like why would I ever use that now, I have the amx 13-90.
Also france now having 3 spaas in the 5.0 bracket, while having nothing from 2.3 - 5.0 like what


As traditional, everything french going up xD

Air 12.7 is good, but all the new aditions should go there not just most.

Still waiting for the ebr 1954 to get its PCOT shell, too bad it isnt american, but it’s also suffering, otherwise it would get it alraidy LOL


Depending on what these new changes from the devblog conclude with the CR2 should go down by 0.3.
Even the CR3(p) is only on the level of a 2A6.

Same for the Ariete’s in their current state.

I don’t quite understand why the JH-7A is moving to 11.7. there is 11.3s better than it as it stands, an example being the Mig-23ML/MLD/MLA; this is looking at it from an ARB perspective, but in CAS usage, there is still aircraft comparable to it at a similar lower brs with the A6E TRAM at 10.3, and the AMX also at 10.3. It seems rather unnecessary for this plane to go higher in br, especially without some buff to compensate for it (such as HMD or a 4 PL-8 loadout).


Yes, that’s an error. Will be fixed to rotation. Time period will not be changed.
Sorry for confusion.


They probably assume that the Bosvark/Yservark will fill the gap. Nice open top vehicle with no armor. I mean the Skink is there, but that thing is pathetic.
