Featured Premium Tanks

 

T1E6

The T1E6 is a tier 2 American premium light tank. It has a great max speed (48km/hr) and rate of fire (42.86r/m). So, hit-and-run strategies work best for this tank.

Like most light tanks, the T1E6 has weak armor. This tank has a bad view range, so it does not perform well as a scout. For best results, team up with tanks that have stronger armor so you can utilize the T1E6's firing speed.
Pros:
  • Accelerates quickly
  • No cost for AP ammo
  • Maneuvers well
  • Good rate of fire
  • Satisfactory reload time
Cons:
  • Not a strong damage-dealer
  • Weak armor
  • Low accuracy
  • Limited view range

Tetrarch

The Tetrarch is a Soviet tier 2 premium light tank.

It was provided to the USSR from Britain through the Lend-Lease Act. The tank was available as a 2012 New Year’s gift from Wargaming to all players for a limited time with the release of the 0.7.1 patch. The Tetrarch has also appeared in gift shop bundles on rare occasions.

It is well-armed, fast on firm ground and has a powerful radio. This is balanced by very weak armor, poor view range, and sluggish cross country and traverse performance.
Pros:
  • Excellent acceleration and top speed allows this tank to reach good spot positions very fast
  • Great traverse speed
  • Excellent penetration, accuracy and damage
  • Good turret traverse speed
  • Good signal range, stay in the near of your team while scouting for spotting damage
  • Fantastic (the typical tier 2) matchmaking
Cons:
  • Poor armor
  • Poor view range
  • Sluggish traverse
  • HE shells deal high damage

 

M3 Light

The M3 Light is a Soviet tier 3 premium light tank. It is currently not available from the in-game store.

It was previously available to new players for completing the in-game training course. It's slightly better than a stock M3 Stuart, but inferior to one that's been fully upgraded. Even so, don't underestimate this tank, as it still has decent top speed and a fast-firing cannon.
Pros:
  • Excellent top speed
  • Good turret traverse speed and elevation arc
  • Good rate of fire
  • Does not encounter tier 5 battles, unlike the regular Stuart
Cons:
  • Poor damage and penetration
  • Poor view and signal range

 

Pz.Kpfw. B2 740 (f)

The Pz.Kpfw. B2 740 (f) is a German tier 4 premium heavy tank.

A captured French B1 with the hull mounted gun removed and plated over. While classified as a heavy tank, its maneuverability rivals that of medium tanks in its own tier, but finds itself hampered by a low top speed. Its armor is more than enough for its tier. Its fast reloading gun has little problem destroying most tanks in its tier, but will struggle when facing better armored foes.
Pros:
  • High rate of fire and quick aim time
  • Only sees tier 4 battles, unlike the regular B1
  • Thick hull sides bounce most weapons of their tier when angled
  • Superior to the B1 in almost every aspect
  • Nippy track traverse speed and adequate acceleration
  • Gun is far superior to the regular 47 mm SA35
Cons:
  • Feeble gun
  • Enormous side profile attracts artillery/TD fire
  • Frontal armor retains the 35mm weak spot
  • Thin turret is easily penetrated up close
  • Exposed tracks
  • Low top speed
  • Basic radio
  • Lackluster crew trainer/credit printer

 

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 38.8km/h. The Chi-Nu Kai’s 75mm gun can take down most Tier V tanks; it fires at 12 rm/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)
  • Great Gun elevation
  • Good view range
  • Very good money maker
  • First japanese tank in the game
Cons:
  • Subpar armor
  • Mediocre depression and speed
  • Very slow turret traverse
  • No limited matchmaking (gets to tier 7 every now and then)
  • Very poor signal range

 

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

Superheavy Spall Liner Increases armor thickness when calculating splash damage from High Explosive (HE) shells (near misses and non-penetrating hits both from tanks and SPGs) or from collisions with other tanks. Has no effect on penetrating hits from HE or other shells. Primarily useful on tanks that are already heavily armored, especially any of the Heavy Tanks with the most armor for their tier.
Large-Caliber Tank Gun Rammer -10% reduction in gun-loading time. Gun rammers increase loading speed and cause a -10% decrease to the manual hand-loading time. Rammers are highly recommended for every vehicle with a damage dealing role (i.e. everything except pure scout tanks).
Vertical Stabilizer Mk. 2 Grants a 20% bonus to accuracy during movement and turret rotation. The actual accuracy rating of the gun does not change. In other words, the aiming circle starts out 20% smaller, but the size when fully aimed remains unaffected.
