Ubisoft have today announced that the Tachanka rework for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is available now.

The full release comes following the test phase on PC. Lord Tachanka has been deeply reworked for competitive play, with new mobility and new gameplay opportunities, thanks to changes in his loadout and a new gadget. In the meantime, a new Elite Skin, “Slava Korolyu,” is now available, presenting the Mighty Lord at his best.

Russian Defender Tachanka has been distinctly improved. Formerly static, he now carries his DP27 LMG as primary weapon for more mobility, with a massive destruction ability to walls. He is also now equipped with a Shumikha launcher, firing incendiary grenades to deny entry or zones while damaging enemies brave enough to stay in its area. The withstand ability, originally available on the Test Server, is not present anymore in the live version of the game.
