Featured Premium Tanks

 

Sexton I

The Sexton I is a British tier 3 premium self-propelled gun.

Although it does not damage well, nor is it extremely accurate, it has a high rate of fire for its type. The Sexton I is also capable of reaching its top speed of 40.2km/hr quickly.

Keep firing and moving to get the best out of this machine!

Pros:
  • High rate of fire
  • Fairly mobile
  • Huge ammo capacity
  • Large gun sweep
Cons:
  • Low damage per shot
  • Poor shell penetration
  • Low XP generation limits training
  • Crew positions do not match well with other British SPGs

 

M4A2E4 Sherman

The M4A2E4 Sherman is a great support tank. This tier 5 American MT has a good RoF and does a fine job taking care of enemy scouts - especially medium and light tanks of a lower tier. It's got good mobility and can accelerate to its top speed of 52km/hr fairly quickly.

Although it has a superior frontal armor, you will not want to get hit on the sides while driving this tank. So stay close with teammates that can protect your sides and help absorb damage. This Sherman makes an awesome ride if you are into making credits fast!

Pros:
  • Armor can bounce shots
  • Accelerates well
  • Good signal range
  • Good turret traverse
  • Good hull traverse
  • Good matchmaking
Cons:
  • Larger than a regular Sherman
  • Inaccurate gun
  • Not to be used for scout rushes
  • Poor penetration

 

IS-6

The IS-6 is a Tier VIII premium heavy tank which belongs to the Soviet tech tree. This tank has decent mobility for a Tier VIII heavy – especially when compared to the Löwe. It packs a punch with its high damage and can prove to be a lethal weapon in close proximity engagements. It has one of the highest DPM among Tier VIII premium heavy tanks.

It has thick, well-angled armor from the front & sides. Its weakness lies in the rear armor where the fuel tanks are located. But if you're careful enough to prevent exposing this area to your opponents, you'll be kicking up a storm with this vehicle on the battlefield.

Oh, and did we mention what a credit-maker this machine is?

Pros:
  • Second best damage-per-minute of the Tier VIII premium heavy tanks, after the KV-5
  • Good alpha damage
  • Preferential matchmaking (Tier IX maximum)
  • Thick, well-angled armor from the front and sides
  • Good credit profitability
  • Decent mobility for a Tier VIII premium heavy tank – especially when compared to the Löwe
Cons:
  • Low ammunition capacity
  • Expensive ammunition
  • Below average gun penetration
  • Terrible accuracy and aim time

 

KV-5

The KV-5 is a Tier VIII heavy from the Soviet tech tree. It has a strong hull and turret armor. This makes the KV-5 a good choice for ramming strategies. If taking down an opponent's tank like a heavy-weight wrestling champion is your idea of fun, send this metal monster to your garage!

Although the KV-5 can run up to 40km/h, it needs space to execute ramming techniques. Also, beware of vehicles from higher tiers as the KV-5 cannot penetrate armor beyond 125-209mm.

Get the KV-5 if you strongly value a good defence and a tank's credit-earning capability.

Pros:
  • Strong hull and turret armor
  • Can take a lot of damage
  • Decent speed for a heavy tank
  • High HP
  • Earns a high amount of credits
  • Good rate of fire
Cons:
  • Large size makes it a challenge to find proper hiding spots
  • Low penetration for its tier
  • Slow turret traverse

 

Matilda Black Prince

The Matilda Black Prince is a tier 5 medium tank. A collector’s piece for fans of the British Tech Tree. This tank has a decent defense with good armor and an above-average 610HP. Its view range of 350m and rate of fire at 26.09 rounds/min allows players to take on sniper roles for the team.

For best results, station the Matilda Black Prince further away from the front lines. Though slow, it is capable of dealing 56-94HP of damage.

Pros:
  • Armor is better than it appears
  • High rate of fire with reasonable accuracy
  • Relatively low profile
  • Above average HP
  • Does not encounter tier 7 battles, unlike regular tier 5 tanks
  • Side skirts have thin spaced armor
Cons:
  • Agonizingly slow, with poor power to weight ratio. Crawls uphill
  • Low damage and penetration
  • Small ammo capacity
  • Gun reloads faster than it can aim
  • Greatly inferior to the Churchill III and Excelsior, yet costs more gold
  • Slightly inferior to the regular Matilda

 

Excelsior

Can’t decide between a medium and heavy tank? Think of the Excelsior as the perfect balance between a medium and heavy class. This British tier 5 tank moves at a decent pace of 38 km/hr and deals 83-138HP of damage. The Excelsior makes up for its speed with thick armor on the front and rear. Just be careful and avoid getting hit on its sides where armor is thin.
Pros:
  • Good speed that can keep up with the pace of battle
  • Thick armor that stops many lower-tier shots and the occasional high tier
  • Good RoF for a 75mm gun
  • Surprisingly thick back armor can protect you a bit from ambushes
Cons:
  • Poor penetration and accuracy with stock rounds - premium rounds required against heavies
  • Frontal armor profile is mostly flat and angling will expose your weak sides
  • Roof armor is only 19mm, making it vulnerable to arty or shots down from elevation
  • Somewhat low HP for a premium heavy
  • Weak side hull armor

 

TOG II

The TOG II  has a generous dose of HP and strong armor. Its angled armor can also bounce enemy shells. Get this tank if you are looking for a survivor that can deal good damage. This British tier 6 heavy tank has a good rate of fire, accuracy, and penetration.

 Many tankers make fun of the TOG II's size - it is clumsy at running and hiding. But it can be an intimidating force when used defensively or in support roles. Never underestimate the TOG II!

Pros:
  • Good Rate of Fire
  • High HP for its tier
  • Great accuracy and penetration
  • Armor can bounce shots with good angling
  • Hard to be detracked
  • Resistant to ramming
  • Good matchmaking
  • It gives other players something to laugh about
  • Constantly underestimated on the battlefield
Cons:
  • Second largest tank in the game, making it an easy target
  • Very poor top speed makes it 2nd slowest tank in game
  • Large ammo rack
  • Armor is mostly flat
  • Low alpha damage
  • Slow acceleration
  • Large tracks are easy to hit
  • One of the lowest win rates of all tanks

 

AT-15A

The AT 15A is the first Tank Destroyer of the the British branch. It is a tier 7 vehicle.

This premium tank is a powerhouse that possesses a good rate of fire and excellent accuracy. It has high armor for a tank destroyer that can bounce off many shots when angled properly and is immune to ramming from most tanks, even those from a higher tier like the KV-5. It's also a great tank for earning medals such as spartan, sniper, master gunner, or cool-headed.

Its weaknesses lie in the gun slit which is easily penetrated and its slow turning that makes it susceptible to flanking so exert great precaution during fights to prevent incurring huge repair costs.

We recommend this tank if you are looking for a challenge as it's no easy feat to master this vehicle. However, if you do successfully utilize it effectively, it's a sign that you're truly one of the better skilled Tank Commanders out there!

Pros:
  • High armor for a TD
  • Shots can be bounced when angled well
  • Good Rate of Fire
  • Very high accuracy
  • Low ammo cost
  • Very wide gun traverse arc
  • Very good gun depression
  • Immune to ramming from most tanks
Cons:
  • Very weak gun for its tier
  • Very slow
  • Weak hull armor
  • Turns slowly
  • Very low income generation for its tier
