WARGAMING WELCOMES ANOTHER AUSSIE GREAT
The AC4 available for World of Tanks players from today
June 3, 2016 – Wargaming has announced the addition of the AC4 tank, a legendary and iconic Australian war machine, to World of Tanks. The AC4 will join the AC1 Sentinel as the second Australian tank in the game.
The AC4 was one of the few tanks built in Australia, featuring a three-inch diameter, 17 pounder gun and three Cadillac V8 engines. Shortly after their production, the completed AC4’s were relegated to storage, never to see a battlefield until now.
The AC4 will only be available in one of two, jam-packed bundles available for in game purchase and will include special Australian camo and emblems, crew experience booster and victory tokens. The AC4 Lite bundle is available for USD $26.74 and the AC4 Ultimate Bundle is available for USD $47.63.
Wargaming anticipates that the AC4 will be a natural lead-up after the release of the AC1 Sentinel which has already fired 10 million shots globally since its inception in March of this year. The AC1 Sentinel has partaken in 715,140 battles so far, with 70,000 of those in the Asia Pacific region.
Jasper Nicolas, General Manager, Wargaming Asia, highlighted the importance of Australian players and Australian military history to World of Tanks.
“We are excited to be able to provide our players with two iconic Australian tanks, whilst continuing to honour Australia’s military history within the game. It’s been great to see that it’s not only Australian players taking up the AC1 Sentinel, with a high popularity globally amongst players.”
The addition of the AC4 follows Wargaming’s renovation and transportation of the AC1 from Texas, USA to the Australian Armor & Artillery Museum in Cairns which is now on display for the public. The complete journey was documented and can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/MY8htOE9PqM
