Can't decide which bundle to get? Let the information below about the bundles help you in making up your mind.

Impenetrable Bundle


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 defense with good armor 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:
  • Armor is better than it appears
  • High rate of fire with reasonable accuracy
  • Relatively low profile
  • Above average HP
  • Does not encounter tier 7 battles, unlike regular tier 5 tanks
  • Side skirts have thin spaced armor
Cons:
  • Agonizingly slow, with poor power to weight ratio. Crawls uphill
  • Low damage and penetration
  • Small ammo capacity
  • Gun reloads faster than it can aim
  • Greatly inferior to the Churchill III and Excelsior, yet costs more gold
  • Slightly inferior to the regular Matilda
3 Days Premium

 2,000

Gold is one of two currencies in World of Tanks that gives you access to various premium options such as premium account status and premium tanks.
 100,000 Credits Also known as silver, it can be used to purchase new modules, tanks, equipment, consumables and ammunition, crew training/retraining as well as temporary camouflage patterns.

Excelsior Bundle


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 armor on the front and rear. Just be careful and avoid getting hit on its sides where armor is thin.
Pros:
  • Good speed that can keep up with the pace of battle
  • Thick armor that stops many lower-tier shots and the occasional high tier.
  • Good RoF for a 75mm gun
  • Surprisingly thick back armor can protect you a bit from ambushes
Cons:
  • Poor penetration and accuracy with stock rounds - premium rounds required against heavies
  • Frontal armor profile is mostly flat and angling will expose your weak sides
  • Roof armor is only 19mm, making it vulnerable to arty or shots down from elevation
  • Somewhat low HP for a premium heavy
  • Weak side hull armor
7 Days Premium Premium account gives 50% more credits and 50% more experience per battle, helping you to progress faster in the game. Learn about all the bonuses granted by a premium account with this guide.

Stylo Bundle


The T34 is an American tier 8 premium heavy tank.

It was previously researchable at tier 9, but was replaced during patch 0.7.2 by the M103. The patch made the T34 the strongest damage dealer for a tier 8 heavy tank (300-500HP). Even with an increased aiming time, the T34 is still one of the biggest threats you can place on a map. It is advised to use defensive strategies with the T34. Even though it has 1,500HP, its armor is weak. Tanks with guns that are tier 6 and above can easily penetrate its hull.

Other than that, the tank churns out lots of credits in good matches. Add the T34 into your garage if you like to keep a good distance from your foes and calculate shots carefully before delivering death blows.

Pros:
  • High penetration and alpha damage on its gun
  • Almost impenetrable frontal turret
  • Great gun depression
  • Surprisingly good acceleration, has a much better power to weight ratio then the tank with a similar role, Löwe
  • Excellent money maker
Cons:
  • Low rate of fire
  • Inaccurate gun
  • Long aim time
  • Poor view range
  • Very weak hull armor can be penetrated even from tier 6 and 7 tanks
  • Slow traverse and turret traverse
  • Commander's hatch is a certain weakspot
  • Large size, easy artillery target
  • Easily catches on fire
