Featured Premium Tanks

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

 

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-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

 

T-127

The T-127 tank has one of thickest hull and turret armour in the game for its tier with a slightly sloped frontal armour that will allow you to bounce shots off from tanks of the same tier and take multiple hits without much trouble. If you use cover and time your shots, this tank has great sustainability in close combat which allows you to take on multiple opponents.

It is also equipped with a gun that has a good rate of fire and can penetrate most tanks of similar tiers. While it is slower than the other Soviet light tanks, this tank is much more at home on the front lines than its faster and more agile siblings. Its weakness lies in the rear of the turret so avoid exposing this area to your opponents.

Pros:
  • Solid armour can easily bounce shots
  • Good rate of fire
  • Turret traverses quickly
  • Quite mobile for the amount of armour it has
Cons:
  • Lower speed and manoeuvrability than other light tanks
  • Poor signal range
  • Driver hatch at front is a big weak spot

 

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 armour on the front and rear. Just be careful and avoid getting hit on its sides where armour is thin.
Pros:
  • Good speed that can keep up with the pace of battle
  • Thick armour that stops many lower-tier shots and the occasional high tier
  • Good RoF for a 75mm gun
  • Surprisingly thick back armour can protect you a bit from ambushes
Cons:
  • Poor penetration and accuracy with stock rounds - premium rounds required against heavies
  • Frontal armour profile is mostly flat and angling will expose your weak sides
  • Roof armour is only 19mm, making it vulnerable to arty or shots down from elevation
  • Somewhat low HP for a premium heavy
  • Weak side hull armour

 

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 defence with good armour 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:
  • Armour is better than it appears
  • High rate of fire with reasonable accuracy
  • Relatively low profile
  • Above average HP
  • Good matchmaking
  • Side skirts have thin spaced armour
Cons:
  • Slow with poor power to weight ratio
  • Low damage and penetration
  • Small ammo capacity
  • Gun reloads faster than it can aim

 

Matilda IV

The Soviet tier 5 Matilda IV is a medium tank, but should be played like a heavy. Although this tank has great armour, high HP, and can unleash some serious damage, it is slow. You will need superb battle instincts to know where to position this tank so it can be a valuable piece in your team's victory.
A Matilda IV can deal 83-138HP of damage - this helps it to defeat lower-tiered light and medium tanks with ease. If you feel like taking on stronger opponents, team up with a heavy tank and protect your ally's flank.
Pros:
  • Superior rate of fire, aim time and accuracy
  • Amazing gun depression
  • Thick, well-angled armour and high HP
  • Fast turret traverse
Cons:
  • Limited top speed and acceleration
  • Low alpha damage
  • Low penetration
  • Fairly low ammunition capacity

 

T2 Light Tank

The T2 Light Tank is an American tier 2 premium light tank. It is very fast with a top speed of 72 km/hr. Good driving skills are needed to bring out the best in this tank. Well-executed circling tactics will increase your rate of survival.

It has a weak gun and poor armour. So, keep moving to avoid enemy fire. Avoiding direct contact is also a good idea since being rammed to destruction is a possibility. This tank serves as a great distraction to opponents while your teammates take down unsuspecting tankers.

Pros:
  • Great acceleration and top speed
  • Deals a decent amount of damage
  • Good gun elevation
  • Small size allows it to hide in bushes easily
Cons:
  • Poor armour
  • Poor view range
  • Poor signal range
  • Poor matchmaking

 

M22 Locust

The M22 Locust is a fast and fun tank to play. It's a small sized American tier 3 premium light tank that can reach a top speed of 64km/hr pretty quickly regardless of terrain. Don't get too carried away by its fast speed though, as the radio range of the M22 is limited.

It boasts a higher penetration that its German counterpart, the T-15, but is less manoeuvrable and has a lower view range. It has good penetration for its tier with a 37 mm M-6 gun equipped and can take out opponents with its high rate of fire. However, the gun cannot penetrate tier V tanks unless you target their weak spots. One thing to look out for when playing this tank is to be mindful of your ammunition supply as the limited supply of 50 shells can run out quickly.

Pros:
  • Good hit points for this tier
  • Nice top speed
  • Good penetration for its tier
  • Good accuracy, aim time, turret traverse speed and elevation arc
  • Good accuracy on the move
  • Good view range
Cons:
  • Not very agile
  • Low protection
  • Small ammo capacity
  • Poor signal range
  • No special matchmaking

 

Churchill III

The Churchill III is a Soviet tier 5 premium heavy tank. Although slow, it has devastating firepower! It has a high rate of fire at 26.25 r/m which can down opponents quickly. Look out for weak spots and bully those pansies into submission! Another great feature that makes this tank a keeper is that it generates a lot of EXP, which makes it a great tank for training your crew.

But like most bullies, the Churchill III could only pick on tanks of its tier and under. Make a run for it when you see higher-tiered heavies or when you feel that enemy arty is trying to push you off the playground.

Pros:
  • Armour is highly effective against tier 4s
  • Largest HP pool of any tier 5 tank
  • Very high rate of fire, reasonably accurate even while moving
  • Frontal weakspots easily hidden by hull angling
  • Generates a high level of EXP, which speeds crew training
  • Cheap ammo and repair costs
  • Preferential matchmaking means it only sees up to Tier 6 battles
  • Very large ammo capacity
Cons:
  • Moves, accelerates, and rotates slowly
  • Low alpha damage
  • Barely-adequate penetration values
  • Poorly-protected turret
  • Mostly unsloped armor
  • Priority target for artillery
  • Gun reloads faster than it can aim

 

Type 3 Chi-Nu Kai

The Type 3 Chi-Nu Kai debuts as the first Japanese tank in the game. It’s a Tier V medium premium tank. You will find that it has a decent 480 HP and an engine that can shift to its top speed of 38km/h. The Chi-Nu Kai’s 75mm gun can take down most Tier V tanks; it fires at 12 r/m with adequate penetration.

Just be careful to avoid being shot in the hull. Use sniper strategies to unleash the Chi-Nu Kai’s full potential.

Pros:
  • Highest alpha damage of all tier 5 medium tanks (excluding howitzers)
  • Highest penetration of all tier 5 medium premium tanks
  • Third highest penetration of all tier 5 medium tanks, only loses to the T-34s 76mm S-54 ( 125mm) and the M4s 76mm gun M1A1 ( 128mm)
  • Good view range
  • Very good money maker
  • First Japanese tank in the game
Cons:
  • Subpar armour
  • Very slow turret traverse
  • No limited matchmaking (gets to tier 7 every now and then)
  • Very poor signal range

 

Valentine II

The Valentine II is a Soviet tier 4 premium light tank. Don't let its looks fool you. This tank may look small, but it has strengths and weaknesses similar to those of heavy tanks. It also has great armour and has 380 HP which is generous for its type and tier.

You can choose to lead the charge with this tank's strong armour and high rate of fire. Spearheading an assault alone is not recommended, so team up with a TD or an ally with a better gun for best results.

Try to avoid attention from enemy snipers and arty. The Valentine II can't run with its slow speed. But it can hide well because of its small size.

Pros:
  • Heavy armour with few weak spots
  • High HP
  • Easy to camouflage in bushes and behind rocks
  • Fast gun/track traverse
  • High rate of fire
  • Decent damage and gun depression
  • Good matchmaking
Cons:
  • Gun is weak against tier 4s
  • Weak engine
  • Low speed limit
  • Low ammo capacity
