Support Bundle

The PzKpfw S35 739 (f) is a German tier 3 premium medium tank. A mobile tank with good maneuverability 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 putting out 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 minimize the damaged received and provide a smaller target for your enemy to shoot. As it has weak armor, 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
  • Gun is superior to the regular 47 mm SA35 in every aspect
  • Large ammo capacity
  • Good signal range
  • Fastest aim time in the game
Cons:
  • Poor damage and penetration
  • No preferential matchmaking
  • Prone to crew loss
  • Relatively low top speed

Armadillo Bundle

Classified as a heavy tank, the T14 can be said to be a beefed up M4 Sherman. Sitting at tier 5 on the American tank tree, this premium tank has good maneuverability and is capable of making short work of any tank below its tier. The T14 has an incredibly large engine for its tier, giving it awesome acceleration and great climbing speed for hills. Running out of ammunition will be a rare occurance as the 75mm gun has a huge amount of shell capacity. It has large tracks thus it can effectively absorb multiple shots from lower-tiered guns.

However, this tank is not without its drawbacks. Its primary weakness is the gun penetration as it can struggle to deal damage to heavy tanks at the same tier or above. Its ammo rack is very susceptible to damage from artillery shell and the front armour's machine gun port is flat and without slopes, allowing Tier 5's and 6's to penetrate easily if they have a shot.

In spite of its drawbacks, the T14 is still a trusty and reliable tank to add to your arsenal as a good support tank. With its good rate of fire and ability to dish out damage quickly, it will fit well in a team helping heavier armoured allies.

Pros:
  • Frontal armor has good angle
  • Turret armor
  • Side screens that may absorb damage
  • Acceleration
  • Speed
  • Damage (DPM)
  • Frontal armor difficult to pen by other tier V tanks
Cons:
  • Alpha damage
  • Penetration
  • Accuracy
  • Traverse speed
  • Turret traverse speed
  • Frontal armor isn't strong enough to withstand TD shells

Strength Bundle

The IS-6 is a Tier 8 premium heavy tank which belongs to the Soviet tech tree.Though this tank is relatively slow and lacks accuracy, it packs a punch with its high damage and can prove to be a lethal weapon in close proximity engagements. Its weakness lies in the rear armour where the fuel tanks are located but if you're careful enough to prevent exposing this part to your opponents, you'll be kicking up a storm with this vehicle on the battlefield. Oh, and did we forget to mention that this tank racks up quite a bit of credits per battle?
Pros:
  • Second best damage-per-minute of the Tier 8 premium heavy tanks, after the KV-5.
  • Good alpha damage.
  • Preferential matchmaking (Tier 9 maximum).
  • Thick, well-angled armour from the front and sides.
  • Good credit profitability.
  • Decent mobility for a Tier 8 premium heavy tank, especially compared to the Löwe.
  • Crew slots match those of all the IS heavy tanks except the IS-7
Cons:
  • Low ammunition capacity.
  • Expensive ammunition.
  • Below average gun penetration.
  • Terrible accuracy and aim time.
  • Crew slots do not match those of the IS-7 and do not include a radioman.
