Airborne Bundle


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 64kph 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 maneuverable 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

Panther Bundle


What's not to like about a Panther? The Panther/ M10 is a German tier VII premium medium tank that is basically a Panther without the magnificent 75mm L/100 gun. It has 50 less horsepower which is hardly noticeable and comes with a larger turret. It has a good rate of fire, superb accuracy for its tier and excellent speed and traverse. Although its armour is low and it doesn't quite pack a punch in the damage department, it has the highest hit points out of its tier VII medium tanks counterparts. So to say that it doesn't match up to the regular Panther would not be doing it any justice at all. One point that we absolutely love about this kitteh is its low repair costs and high credit income which makes it much more cost-effective than a Panther. You can't pass up on a great tank like this!

Trivia: The Panther-M10 is the first tank to sport a different color from the rest of the tanks of its nation.

Pros:
  • Good rate of fire
  • Great accuracy for its tier, and decent accuracy on the move - even without the benefit of a Vertical Stabilizer
  • Excellent speed and traverse
  • Decent acceleration
  • Excellent turret traverse
  • Low repair cost and high credit income
  • Highest hit points out of all tier 7 medium tanks, can take quite a few hits to its HP pool to share the damage
  • Never sees tier 9 fights unlike the regular Panther
  • Least expensive tier 7 premium tank
  • Relatively thick turret armor combined with a decent gun mantlet/gun depression and lack of easily targeted cupola make it pretty good at hulldown
  • Upper glacis is effective at bouncing shots from tier 7 and lower tanks due to the average thickness combined with the nice sloping on it
  • Excellent support tank for tier 7 heavies
Cons:
  • Mediocre thickness on the armor
  • Retains the thin lower glacis weakpoint from the Panther. When penetrated, the tanks tends to light on fire (cover this as much as you can)
  • Fairly low damage per shot, but average compared to the tier 7 mediums. Only the T20 has a large difference in terms of alpha damage
  • Barely sufficient penetration against tier 8 tanks, run away from Tiger II's or IS-3's unless shooting sides/rear/weakspots
  • Inferior to a fully upgraded Panther in some aspects, especially in terms of penetration
  • Inferior rate of fire than the VK 30.02 (D)'s KwK 42 gun

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.

Equinox Tetrarch and Credits Booster


The Tetrarch is a Soviet tier 2 premium light tank. It is currently not available from the in-game store.

Tetrarch is one that was provided to the USSR from Britain through the Lend-Lease Act. It was available as a 2012 New Years 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
