Impenetrable Bundle


The Matilda Black Prince hails from the British Tech Tree family and it is a Tier V Medium Tank. This vehicle makes an effective defender, sniper and ambusher. It has lower armor than the Churchill, but a better profile and a more accurate gun. Other plus points include a high rate of fire with reasonable accuracy and above average health points. It is best used in the second line, as its fast rate of fire and quick turning turret will make short work of flankers and scouts.

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

Excelsior Bundle


The Excelsior is a British tier 5 premium heavy tank.

The Excelsior can be thought as the British equivalent to the American T14. This tank takes the middle ground between medium and heavy classes, and can perform well in both roles. Sporting thick armor and decent speed,it can also dish out damage with its somewhat low penetration gun. Unlike the T14, it trades some speed for better armor.

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

Stylo Bundle


The T34 is a premium heavy tank that belongs to the American tech tree. The tank was previously a researchable tank at Tier 9 but was replaced by the M103 during patch 0.7.2. With that patch update. the T34 is now the hardest hitting tier 8 heavy tank, putting out even more damage than the IS-3 armed with the 122mm BL-9. The aiming time was increased for the cannon to balance the vehicle but even with these changes, the T34 is still a very powerful ally to have on your side during battle. One thing to take note of is that the tank has a weak hull and therefore it is advised to play defensively and provide firepower as any Tier 6 or above gun can easily penetrate this weak hull.

The T34 provides a good credit income, similar to that of the KV-5 and will earn the player plenty of credits in a good match. If you're looking to inflict tons of pain on the battle field and increase your credit income at the same time, this package will definitely appeal to you.
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
