Recap thus far. English stream will be amended later in italics.
ST-A3, 6.7, Japan. 6s reload.
EBR 1954, "3.7", France. FL10 turret on an EBR (same turret as M4A1 FL10 and AMX 13/75s). Shells were WIP and invisible.
CCKW M45, 2.3, China. CCKW chassis with turret from the M16 MGMC. Low tier Chinese AA.
ZTZ-99, 10.0, China.
M113 ADATS, 10.3, Britain. Classed as a TD.
SdKfz.251/21, 3.3, Germany. Halftrack with three MG151s in an interesting turret.
Saab 105G, "7.7", Sweden. Rb 24s and Rb 24Js, up to 1000lb bombs. No gunpods + Rb 24 loadouts.
Buccaneer S.2, 9.3, Britain. Attacker. AIM-9Bs, flares & RWR, large bomb load. Unique rocket pods. Gets bombs and missiles together.
MiG-21PFM, 10.7, Russia. 2nd generation MiG-21, worse than MF or SMT. Gets 2x Kh-66s, other ordnance unsure but could be R-60s based on BR (if it had R-3Ss like the F-13 I'd say it could be 10.0). Only has two wing pylons, but has a GSh-23 as opposed to the NR-30 on the MiG-21F-13/J-7II or the gun-less MiG-21PF. According to
/u/fegeleinn it only ever used R-3Ss, so it's pretty much DoA.
V-11G, 1.7, China. US made, but semi unqiue attacker. Gets a 500lb bomb and four 7.62mm M1919s.
MBK pr.12412, 4.7, Russia. Coastal ship, has AK-230 and AK-725 plus 4 torps and anti sub rockets.
SMS Von der Tann, 6.0, Germany. German battlecruiser, fewer guns than Westfalen but same guns.
A109EOA-2, 9.3, Italy. Has TOWs and Hydras, we didn't see loadouts but the one shown had 4x TOWs in twin launchers and 2x 7-shot FFAR pods. Will be like a BO 105 CB-2
A129 CBT, 9.7, Italy. Didn't show ordnance but had 8x TOWs and 38 Hydras as well as the 20mm M197. Had 90 flares, but the BR makes me worried it either has no AAMs, has no Hellfires, or both. Not what I expected, and I hope there is an International proper they didn't show with AAMs and Hellfires or Spikes even at 10.7. If you have the A129 premium, it's probs not worth replacing.
New smoke effects for tank and naval cannons. Seems to take into account muzzle brakes to some degree.
New 3D track models on all tanks.
New track effects including warping and breaking at the point of impact.
Example of physics,
Example 1 of breaking,
Example 2 of breaking.
Track sparks when skidding on tarmac or concrete.
The M113 ADATS, ZTZ-99 and SdKfz 251/21 were not show at all. We know roughly what they'd be like, but only roughly.
Tank tracks are now using 3D models. This is different from currently as current tracks use layers and boxes of 2D images to give a 3D feel. This works decently fine for most track, notably except the French WW2 ones on tanks like the B1 bis and ter, SAu 40 and ARL 44s. The new tracks are fully 3D. They have dynamic physics and will flex and roll, drop into trenches when you drive over them, they will flutter as you turn and when you shoot them, they will break in the place that was shot with multiple severages per track.
According to /u/SIgmar82, not all tank tracks are being revamped to 3D right away. They are releasing them in groups as they work on them, with this patch being the most popular tanks first (such as the M4s, T-34s, Abrams, T-80 and Leclerc) as well as the problem child SAu 40, B1 bis/ter and ARL-44s.
The pr.12412 has a turret with six Iglas on it, but they are non-functional. In the test drive, there were only the guns, torpedoes and anti-sub rockets (like on the Stroynyy/Sposobnyy or Pr.159/35).
The Soviet bluewater fleet was seen and it can be confirmed that they are getting no new bluewater ships.
The American tank tree was seen and it can be confirmed they are getting no higher tier tanks (Tier 4 and up we could see).
The Soviet tank tree was seen and it can be confirmed they are getting no lower tier tanks (Tier 1-4 was scrolled through before he switched tabs).
Two variants of the Saab 105, even though only the 105G was shown. Perhaps one premium and one tech tree? Thanks /u/SIgmar82.
