Featured Premium Tanks

Löwe

The Löwe is a Tier VIII Premium heavy tank. It has an excellent gun for a Tier VIII heavy with better accuracy & penetration compared to a Tiger II’s top gun. The excellent view range allows you to earn credits quickly.

The tank’s upper glacis armour is strong enough to withstand 122mm of penetration and its well-sloped front of turret can bounce of shells even from Tier IX TDs.

Pros:
  • Excellent accuracy
  • Excellent gun for a Tier VIII heavy
  • Better accuracy and penetration than what Tiger II's top gun
  • Very strong gun mantle (comparable to JagdTiger's superstructure)
  • Excellent money-maker
  • Excellent view range
  • Upper glacis is strong enough against IS's 122mm
  • Well sloped front of the turret can bounce even Tier IX guns from TD's
Cons:
  • Large size, easy artillery target
  • Large lower glacis
  • Catches fire easily
  • Tank has under average HP/weight ratio
  • Upper glacis isn’t strong enough to resist guns with 200mm or higher penetration guns

 

8,8 cm PaK 43 Jagdtiger

Many opponents will run for cover when they see a 8,8 cm Pak 43 Jagdtiger. Its rounds can penetrate armours that are 152-252 mm thick. Not to mention, it has a high rate of fire. High accuracy also allows you to take down enemies easily by attacking weak spots. This TD can deal 180-300 HP of damage.

Although the Jagdtiger is powerful, it is extremely slow and has weak armour in the sides and rear. Use this for sniper roles and find good hiding spots to avoid detection. Long-range strategies are your best bets. Better yet, find a good team that can protect your sides.

Pros:
  • Very strong superstructure
  • Extremely precise gun that easily hits weak spots
  • Fast reload time and consequently good DPM
  • Ability to hull down
  • Excellent aiming time
  • Decent armour for Tier VIII
  • Excellent view range
  • Good amount of hit points
  • Thick tracks can absorb damage
  • Can engage multiple frontal targets easily - great for holding chokepoints
Cons:
  • Slow traverse speed
  • If "tracked" while going full speed, the momentum of such weight will turn the tank 90°, exposing its potentially thin sides
  • Poor Alpha damage - cannot compete with "peek-a-boo" tactics, and most halfway decent players won't just sit and let you shoot them repetitively
  • Can easily catch on fire if hit in the lower glacis
  • Side armour is weak
  • Large superstructure combined with slow speed make this tank very easy for artillery to hit
  • Immobility combined with lack of turret makes this tank have a huge lack of versatility

 

Pz.Kpfw. IV Schmalturm

The Pz.Kpfw. IV Schmalturm is a premium tier 6 medium tank from the German tech tree. Tankers enjoy this vehicle for its accurate gun. Great penetration abilities allow shots from this tank to penetrate armour of 113-188mm. With high accuracy, a good RoF, and penetrating capabilities, this tank makes one fearsome sniper!

Just make sure you have your weak hull armour covered while around enemy tanks. To stay alive, keep your weak spots protected or support your team with firepower from afar.

Pros:
  • Excellent penetration
  • Strong turret armour
  • Good gun depression
  • Superior accuracy
  • Ideal for crew training
Cons:
  • Low alpha damage
  • Weak hull armour
  • Quite slow for a medium tank

 

 Pz.Kpfw. S35 739 (f)

The PzKpfw S35 739 (f) is a German tier 3 premium medium tank. A mobile tank with good manoeuvrability and acceleration. It has good hit points and a decent gun for its tier and will have no problems facing lower-tier tanks. The tank has a high rate of fire is capable of delivering a lot of damage. Other plus points are a large ammo capacity and a good signal range. Its size, however does make it vulnerable to incoming fire from the sides, therefore, it is recommended to always have the front face the enemy in order to minimise the damage received and provide a smaller target for your enemy to shoot. As it has weak armour, it's always a good idea to team up with a group and support them with flanking shots.
Pros:
  • Good hit points
  • Good acceleration
  • Relatively fast traverse speed
  • Rounded armour, which makes this tank quite thick against tier 3 and lower
  • High damage potential and rate of fire
  • Large ammo capacity
  • Good signal range
  • Fastest aim time in the game
Cons:
  • No preferential matchmaking
  • Prone to crew loss
  • Relatively low top speed

 

T-15

Something great about the T-15 is that it has the agility to drive circles around enemy tanks. This tier 3 German light tank also has good HP for its tier. It also makes a good scout with an excellent view range.

Although its gun is decent against tanks of the same tier, it will not deal much damage to higher tiers. So take advantage of the T-15's speed and aim for weak spots.

Pros:
  • Good hit points for a tier 3
  • Good accuracy, aim time, turret traverse speed, and elevation arc
  • Good agility
  • Good view range
  • Decent armor for a light tank
  • Extra signal range
Cons:
  • Below average damage and penetration
  • Does not perform well in scout rushes
  • Not to be used for scout rushes
  • Scouting can be difficult if there are many other fast tanks

 

Dicker Max

The Dicker Max is a German tier VI tank destroyer. It works like a deadly secret agent - lurking in high places and waiting to ambush unsuspecting foes behind all corners. This tank dishes out high alpha damage and can penetrate armour of 127-211mm. It has a fairly accurate gun too.

Like all other tanks, keep the D. Max's strengths and weaknesses in mind. The D. Max has extremely weak armour, so make full use of its 400m view range, work with allied scouts and enjoy giving enemies a couple of smokes.

Just remember to stay hidden and to move often so your shots don't give away your position.

Pros:
  • Great gun depression
  • Good DPM
  • Superb view range
  • Excellent credit-maker
  • Easy to camouflage
  • High alpha damage
Cons:
  • Low ammo capacity
  • Weak armour
  • Poor acceleration and turning speed
  • High ammo costs

 

T-25

The T-25 is a tier 5 premium medium tank which hails from Germany. As it was designed as a successor to the PzKpfw 38 (t) and PzKpfw 38 nA, you'll find some similarities in its profile but with a larger build with sloped armour and a forward rather than a centre mounted turret. Its speed makes up for its sub-par armour and its capable of hitting a top speed of 60km/h, making this tank an excellent candidate for breaching enemy lines and supporting positions in a flash. It has good accuracy and a high rate of fire which allows it to take out lower tier tanks swiftly but it lacks the manoeuvrability of a light tank and can encounter some trouble against frontal armours of stronger tanks. Nevertheless, this machine will be a valuable asset to any player's arsenal.

Pros:
  • Good damage and penetration
  • High HP
  • Good forward and reverse speed
  • Good gun depression
  • Best money maker for its tier
  • Can scout in a pinch (although not advised)
Cons:
  • Low aim time
  • Rather low view range - can be remedied through tactical use of Binoculars.
  • Has difficulties reaching top speed
  • Vulnerable to ammo rack damage
  • Poor armour
  • Slow turret and hull traverse
