Featured Premium Tanks

Matilda Black Prince

 

The Matilda Black Prince is a Tier V 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 HP. Its view range and rate of fire 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 a healthy amount of damage.

Pz. Kpfw T25

 

The T-25 is a Tier V 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.

 

 

Matilda IV

 

The Soviet Tier V 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.

 

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.

Skoda T 40

 

This is the first representative of Czechoslovakia in the game. The tank was developed after World War II as a general-purpose vehicle, which contributed to its versatility. Great mobility and a battle-tested 88 mm gun are more than enough for comfortable play.

High damage and rate of fire allows you to easily destroy your enemies at close and medium range, and mobility suggests applying a flexible combat style. A view range of 370m is another bonus for active players. However, weak stabilization and limited elevation/depression angles can rain on your parade.
The vehicle will suit the taste of collectors and medium tank fans.

T-34-3

 

The T-34-3 is a Tier 8 Chinese medium tank.

This tank is a variant of the T-34-2, a Chinese credit tank and also its successor in the real world. Like all improved variants, the T-34-3 outshines its older brother in every single way in the game, featuring improved armour, weapons and mobility.

The main gun of the T-34-3 is undoubtedly the highlight of the tank, as it is taken directly from the 112. This means that the T-34-3 can potentially - with the use of premium HEAT rounds - achieve the same 250 penetration rating as the heavy tank, which is more than enough to pierce the armour of any medium tank in the field.

Because of its strengths, most players consider this a worthy alternative to the Type 59 medium tank.

 

M4A1 Revalorise

 

Shermans under French banners may seem bizarre. What is this tank even doing in Tier VIII battles? Any vehicle can turn it into a burning sieve in no time!

However, everything falls into place when you look at the armament. The accurate and powerful 105 mm gun with great penetration just wipes out opponents. Standard APCR shell can penetrate up to 200 mm of armor and cause up to 390 points of damage. Not to mention that the tank can carry HEAT shells!

The M4A1 Revalorisé is truly lethal, but beware — the vehicle is vulnerable to return fire (especially during an 11-second reload). As soon as you get used to it, this French tank will bring you a lot of fun and credits!

STA-2

 

Good damage per minute is in your cards if you're riding the STA-2. This vehicle is a Tier VIII Japanese vehicle. It makes an incredible sniper. While it has an above average HP for its tier, you will still need to be cautious when soaking up damage due to the tank's low armour values. For best results, work in a team with other tanks with better armour.

Panther 8,8cm

 

The Panther mit 8,8 cm L/71 is a Tier VIII German medium tank. This is a Premium version of the Panther II tank with an improved gun, but with slightly reduced armour and mobility. The 8.8 cm L/71 gun of this Premium Panther is quite capable of penetrating any enemy of its tier.

When you encounter a higher-tier opponent, the high accuracy of the gun will help you to penetrate weak points. The other advantages of this vehicle are its good view range of 390 meters, and ability to run with any German medium crew members without penalty. This makes it perfect for training the crew of your E-50M or other German mediums.

This tank is most effective when shooting from medium and long range and can be used for both attack and defence. The Panther mit 8,8 cm L/71 can also cooperate effectively in a platoon with heavy or medium tanks of its tier.

T26E4 SuperPershing

 

The T26E4 Super Pershing is an American Tier VIII premium medium tank which has improved armour in comparison to the M26 Pershing. It is even possible for some shells to penetrate the spaced armour without the tank taking serious damage. The tank's DPM and accuracy are decent.

However, do take note that the T26E4 Pershing is very slow for a medium tank. So, use strategies that work best with medium tanks. Knowledge of different terrains and sneaking up on enemies from the rear and sides will contribute to your future victories.

FV 4202 (P)

 

The FV4202 (P) is a Tier VIII Premium tank with a great gun. If you are looking for a sniper or a support tank with good damage capabilities, this is it. With this tank, you will enjoy good gun stabilisation too which works great when shooting on the move. A good view range will help you to take down enemies from afar with lower chances of detection.

AMX CDC

 

The AMX CDC is an extremely interesting tank. Built like a heavy but zooms across the map like a light, this beast is also armed with an excellent gun, all in a neat little package. To maximise your gun’s potential, avoid being hit by taking sniping and supporting roles. This vehicle’s speed also makes it an excellent scout.

T 54 first prototype

 

The Т-54 First Prototype is a Premium Tier VIII Soviet medium tank. It looks like the T-44 but has a number of key differences. This Premium vehicle has improved armor: the hull and the turret have a good chance of deflecting incoming shots, especially when the tank is actively maneuvering. The enhanced armor and low-power engine result in a less agile vehicle, a difference which is most noticeable during initial acceleration. Nevertheless, the vehicle's speed is sufficient to perform the standard roles of a medium tank. The prototype has a rapid-firing gun that shows no prominent advantages or disadvantages.

Like other Tier VIII vehicles, the T-54 First Prototype has high profitability and the possibility to transfer crews from other Soviet medium tanks without any penalties.
