Can't decide which tank to get? Let the information below help you.

KV-5

The KV-5 is a Tier VIII heavy from the Soviet tech tree. It has a strong hull and turret armour. This makes the KV-5 a good choice for ramming strategies. If taking down an opponent's tank like a heavy-weight wrestling champion is your idea of fun, send this metal monster to your garage!

Although the KV-5 can run up to 40km/h, it needs space to execute ramming techniques. Also, beware of vehicles from higher tiers as the KV-5 cannot penetrate armour beyond 125-209mm.

Get the KV-5 if you strongly value a good defence and a tank's credit-earning capability.

Pros:
  • Strong hull and turret armour
  • Can take a lot of damage
  • Decent speed for a heavy tank
  • High HP
  • Earns a high amount of credits
  • Good rate of fire
Cons:
  • Large size makes it a challenge to find proper hiding spots
  • Low penetration for its tier
  • Slow turret traverse

M3 Light

The M3 Light is a Soviet tier 3 premium light tank. It is currently not available from the in-game store.

It was previously available to new players for completing the in-game training course. It's slightly better than a stock M3 Stuart, but inferior to one that's been fully upgraded. Even so, don't underestimate this tank, as it still has decent top speed and a fast-firing cannon.
Pros:
  • Excellent top speed
  • Good turret traverse speed and elevation arc
  • Good rate of fire
  • Does not encounter tier 5 battles, unlike the regular Stuart
Cons:
  • Poor damage and penetration
  • Poor view and signal range

T26E4

The T26E4 Super Pershing is an American tier 8 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.

 

Pros:
  • Thick sloped frontal armour is good for bouncing shots
  • Good rate of fire
  • Able to pivot in place
  • Great gun depression
  • Good matchmaking
Cons:
  • Extremely weak side and rear armour
  • Fuel tanks are a weak spot
  • Weakspots are easily exploitable
  • Low acceleration and does not perform well at climbing uphill
  • Poor AP penetration

T34

The T34 is a premium tier 8 heavy tank from the American tech tree. It is one of the highest damage dealers for a tier 8 heavy. With a powerful gun, shots can even penetrate certain tier 10 vehicles.

Be careful to watch your back. Because there are lower-tiered tanks out there that can take down this tank with surprise attacks from behind. Utilize the T34's strengths by supporting the team from behind.

 

Pros:
  • Capable of high penetration and alpha damage
  • Frontal turret has a strong defence
  • Great gun depression
  • Good acceleration
  • Excellent credit maker
Cons:
  • Low rate of fire
  • Inaccurate
  • Takes long to aim
  • Poor view range
  • Very weak hull armour
  • Slow traverse
  • Large size makes it easy for enemies to spot
  • Catches fire easily

 Löwe

The Löwe is a Tier VIII Premium heavy tank. It has an excellent gun for a Tier VIII heavy with better accuracy & penetration compared to a Tiger II’s top gun. The excellent view range allows you to earn credits quickly.

The tank’s upper glacis armour is strong enough to withstand 122mm of penetration and its well-sloped front of turret can bounce of shells even from Tier IX TDs.

Pros:
  • Excellent accuracy
  • Excellent gun for a Tier VIII heavy
  • Better accuracy and penetration than what Tiger II's top gun
  • Very strong gun mantle (comparable to JagdTiger's superstructure)
  • Excellent money-maker
  • Excellent view range
  • Upper glacis is strong enough against IS's 122mm
  • Well sloped front of the turret can bounce even Tier IX guns from TD's
Cons:
  • Large size, easy artillery target
  • Large lower glacis
  • Catches fire easily
  • Tank has under average HP/weight ratio
  • Upper glacis isn’t strong enough to resist guns with 200mm or higher penetration guns


 8,8 cm PaK 43 Jagdtiger

Many opponents will run for cover when they see a 8,8 cm Pak 43 Jagdtiger. Its rounds can penetrate armours that are 152-252 mm thick. Not to mention, it has a high rate of fire. High accuracy also allows you to take down enemies easily by attacking weak spots. This TD can deal 180-300 HP of damage.

Although the Jagdtiger is powerful, it is extremely slow and has weak armour in the sides and rear. Use this for sniper roles and find good hiding spots to avoid detection. Long-range strategies are your best bets. Better yet, find a good team that can protect your sides.

Pros:
  • Very strong superstructure
  • Extremely precise gun that easily hits weak spots
  • Fast reload time and consequently good DPM
  • Ability to hull down
  • Excellent aiming time
  • Decent armour for Tier VIII
  • Excellent view range
  • Good amount of hit points
  • Thick tracks can absorb damage
  • Can engage multiple frontal targets easily - great for holding chokepoints
Cons:
  • Slow traverse speed
  • If "tracked" while going full speed, the momentum of such weight will turn the tank 90°, exposing its potentially thin sides
  • Poor Alpha damage - cannot compete with "peek-a-boo" tactics, and most halfway decent players won't just sit and let you shoot them repetitively
  • Can easily catch on fire if hit in the lower glacis
  • Side armour is weak
  • Large superstructure combined with slow speed make this tank very easy for artillery to hit
  • Immobility combined with lack of turret makes this tank have a huge lack of versatility
 


FCM 50t

Take the FCM 50t if you're looking for a French tank that can aid your transition from medium to heavy tanks. This Tier VIII heavy runs at a maximum speed of 51km/h and can provide you with the familiarity of a medium tank's speed. On the plus side, it has a decent gun that penetrates 159-265mm of armour. The tank can put up a good fight with excellent aim time, accuracy, and reload time.

One of the tank's drawbacks is its low damage for its tier. The large size makes the tank bad at performing sneak attacks or taking cover.

Pros:
  • High top speed, combined with quick acceleration
  • Excellent tank traverse, can turn on a dime
  • Great penetration, better than even the Panther II
  • Good credit maker, due to the high DPM and accuracy combined with cheap ammo costs
  • Great view range
  • Great rate of fire, when used with trained crew/BiA/Rammer
  • Decent gun depression/elevation
  • Good accuracy
  • Special matchmaking that makes Tier IX the highest it can get against, allowing it to penetrate most tanks it faces
  • Excellent tank for support on medium wolfpacks, much like the other high tier French heavies
  • Great speed combined with relatively high weight makes it good for ramming, especially versus medium tanks
  • Large tracks can soak damage fairly reliably. When turning corners, you can make enemies shoot your tracks
Cons:
  • Average armour for a heavy, though very good compared to tier 8 mediums
  • Giant silhouette, many forms of cover are not particularly effective, and artillery has no problem hitting you
  • Low alpha damage
  • Prone to module and crew damage
  • Priority target for artillery
  • Ammorack can be damaged easily, safe stowage skill for loader or/and wet ammorack equipment is recommended for use
 

IS-6

The IS-6 is a Tier VIII premium heavy tank which belongs to the Soviet tech tree. This tank has decent mobility for a Tier VIII heavy – especially when compared to the Löwe. It packs a punch with its high damage and can prove to be a lethal weapon in close proximity engagements. It has one of the highest DPM among Tier VIII premium heavy tanks.

It has thick, well-angled armour from the front & sides. Its weakness lies in the rear armour where the fuel tanks are located. But if you're careful enough to prevent exposing this area to your opponents, you'll be kicking up a storm with this vehicle on the battlefield.

Oh, and did we mention what a credit-maker this machine is?

Pros:
  • Second best damage-per-minute of the Tier VIII premium heavy tanks, after the KV-5
  • Good alpha damage
  • Preferential matchmaking (Tier IX maximum)
  • Thick, well-angled armour from the front and sides
  • Good credit profitability
  • Decent mobility for a Tier VIII premium heavy tank – especially when compared to the Löwe
Cons:
  • Low ammunition capacity
  • Below average gun penetration
  • Terrible accuracy and aim time

 

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.

Pros:
  • Tough turret
  • Great damage per shot
  • Very high penetration with gold ammo
  • Good mobility
Cons:
  • Abysmal gun depression
  • Poor aim time and accuracy
  • Average penetration with AP ammunition
  • Long reload time for a medium tank
  • Low DPM

112

The 112 is a Tier 8 Chinese heavy tank.

Most people will agree that the 112 is like a distant cousin of the IS-6 due to an approximately equal amount of armour and gun performance. However, there are some key differences that separate one from the other; its armour is slightly thicker and is distributed more towards the front rather than the sides, enabling it to withstand more hits in a head-on attack.

The gun's performance is equally impressive, which is enhanced by the premium HEAT rounds that it can fire. With it, one can achieve a powerful 250 penetration rating, which can demolish all but the toughest tanks in the game. As the speed of the 112 is adequate at best, the tank is most suited for brawling in close range, where its armour and armament can outlast the enemy.

Pros:
  • Good alpha damage
  • Extremely effective frontal armour, effectively 240mm thick
  • Thick turret is cast and rounded, making it very tough
  • Good straight line speed, can keep up with some medium tanks
  • HEAT ammunition is very effective
Cons:
  • Shoots rather slowly, considering the IS-2 has the same gun, is a tier lower and shoots faster
  • Very thin side armour, and cannot sidescrape as well as the IS-6
  • Very weak lower front plate is easily penetrated
  • Susceptible to both fuel tank and engine damage causing fires
  • Engine power is rather low, making acceleration sluggish
  • Bad tank traverse makes it turn badly
  • Poor accuracy, typical of Russian 122mm guns and their derivatives
  • Terrible aim time, also typical of Russian 122mm guns and their derivatives
