Comments from a Developer: MarKr[]

"Hello, we bring you a new patch - 4.9.8! This patch brings changes on several penetration values of certain guns vs certain "big cats" so Tiger I should not have such a hard time penetrating Churchills from rear and 90mm guns and 17 pounders should now have way bigger chance to penetrate e.g. Jagdtiger from rear too. We removed the reward unit of M2A1 from US because it had a visual bug where loaded infantry was not visible when loaded on the Halftrack and could not fire. Also Infantry doctrine got a new function for Infiltration rangers teams and now they should be finally able to work as an infiltration unit. Airborne doctrine gets new model for their AB HQ - it is just a visual change, everything about it remains the same.

Also Pershing Ace got a brand new ability which can help it repel pesky infantry around it. One of the biggest changes (which was already announced on our Facebook page) is that all CW gliders will now drop a green smoke to the landing area before they come in - this should help to prevent people from using it to kill Axis MG and Mortar team which was never its intended purpose. Also Bren carrier has now visible loaded infantry who can fire from inside again as in vCoH - also as in vCoH when you buy the Vickers upgrade the Bren is moved to the pintle in the back which icreases its combat effectiveness and so we increased the price of the upgraded a little bit. We also dropped the price of Axis HMG42 teams because many factors of infantry combat changed over years and the price of this unit remained the same and in general was not really wort its price."
