Featured Premium Tanks


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.

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


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.

  • 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
  • Gun is weak against tier 4s
  • Weak engine
  • Low speed limit
  • Low ammo capacity


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.

  • 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
  • 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

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.
  • Superior rate of fire, aim time and accuracy
  • Amazing gun depression
  • Thick, well-angled armour and high HP
  • Fast turret traverse
  • Limited top speed and acceleration
  • Low alpha damage
  • Low penetration
  • Fairly low ammunition capacity




The SU-100Y from the USSR is the stuff nightmares are made of. It has a very powerful 130mm gun which is extremely lethal on a tier 6 tank. If there are boss tanks to fight out there, this beast definitely qualifies. It may not be the fastest tier 6 Tank Destroyer, but it is easy to manoeuvre - which is great for tankers who are new to TDs.

As for the tank's weakness, be aware of your thin armour as many opponents will be able to down you quickly. The SU-100Y's signal range is not great either, so you will not be able to shoot well across tricky maps. But on the bright side, you won't have to worry too much about being chased by opponents. Fear will drive them away naturally with the exception of worthy opponents or the very foolish.

  • Ranks high amongst Tier 6s for alpha damage
  • High HP for a Tier 6 Tank Destroyer
  • Engine allows it to reach its top speed quickly
  • Good manoeuvrability for a Tank Destroyer
  • No bush is big enough for this tank to hide in
  • Very weak armour
  • Bad signal range




The SU-122-44 from the USSR tech tree puts up a good fight with its deadly DPM. Like most TDs, this tier 7 has very weak armour, but compensates with its ability to deal an insane amount of damage. Experts of hide and seek will love this tank. This tank is definitely a sniper, so make full use of its camouflage potential and have fun killing tanks long before they see you.
Its top speed of 47 km/h allows your tank to move to ideal positions fairly quickly, but remember to avoid being detected at all costs. As a Tank Destroyer, a good offence is a good defence. Kill them before they kill you.
  • Good alpha damage
  • Good top speed
  • Great hull traverse allows it to manoeuvre well
  • Fantastic rate of fire
  • Camouflages well
  • Long aim time
  • Does not accelerate well
  • Slow turret traverse speed
