28 November - 05 December: [Premium Shop] Oriental Spotlight

Tank Commanders,

The very first armoured vehicles in Japan and China were those that could be purchased from other countries. As the need for greater defence grew, both nations began to research and develop their own war machines. Each vehicle was built to perform certain roles in a war.

For this week's special, the Premium Shop is featuring four bundles packaged with Asian tanks. The Japanese Type 3 Chi-Nu Kai can be purchased at half price too!

Check the deals below!

Featured Premium Tanks

Type 64

The Type 64 is a Tier 6 Chinese Light Tank.

Its top speed at 72km/hr and excellent signal range makes it a great scout. This tank is able to run circles even around light tanks, so use the manoeuvrability to your advantage.

Be careful, though. The Type 64 has extremely thin armour on the front, sides, and rear. One of the best defence strategies is to keep moving and avoid getting hit. Target enemies with weaker armour if you wish to reap a few kills.

Pros:
  • Excellent speed
  • Manoeuvres easily
  • Good gun depression
  • Decent view range
  • Great signal range
Cons:
  • Weak armour
  • Slow turret traverse speed
  • Poor accuracy
  • Radio operator required
  • Usually matched with higher tiers

 

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

 

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.

Just be careful to avoid being shot in the hull. Use sniper strategies to unleash the Chi-Nu Kai’s full potential.

Pros:
  • Highest alpha damage of all tier 5 medium tanks (excluding howitzers)
  • Highest penetration of all tier 5 medium premium tanks
  • Third highest penetration of all tier 5 medium tanks, only loses to the T-34s 76mm S-54 ( 125mm) and the M4s 76mm gun M1A1 ( 128mm)
  • Good view range
  • Very good money maker
  • First Japanese tank in the game
Cons:
  • Subpar armour
  • Very slow turret traverse
  • No limited matchmaking (gets to tier 7 every now and then)
  • Very poor signal range
