Equipment

Equipment is a category of additional systems, parts, and components that can improve a vehicle's combat characteristics and minimize its weaknesses.

In World of Tanks, there are two types of equipment: standard and improved. Standard equipment is divided into removable and complex equipment types and can be purchased for credits. Removable equipment can be mounted on any vehicle and demounted for free. Complex equipment can significantly improve individual characteristics of your vehicle, but can only be demounted and sent to the Depot for gold or by using a Demounting Kit. Some types of complex equipment fall into different subtypes, suitable for particular vehicles. For example, Gun Rammers come in different types, depending on the caliber of the gun on which they can be mounted.

Improved equipment provides a greater bonus to vehicle characteristics than standard equipment. To buy these items, you'll need bonds—a special currency that can only be earned in certain battle modes. You can't mount improved equipment on your vehicle if you have already mounted standard equipment that provides a similar effect, and vice versa. Improved equipment can be demounted for bonds only.

Equipment Mounting

You can mount up to three items of equipment on your vehicle. Equipment can be purchased in the Garage:

  1. Choose the tank on which you want to mount equipment and click on any empty equipment slot over the vehicle panel. In the Select Equipment menu, there are available equipment types. Mouse over an equipment item to learn more about its characteristics and cost.
  2. Choose the equipment you want to mount and click Purchase. The equipment is purchased and automatically mounted on your vehicle, and is then displayed in one of the equipment slots.

Equipment Demounting

You can demount removable equipment for free, complex for 10 or using a Demounting Kit, and improved for 200. To demount equipment, choose the corresponding slot and click Demount.

The demounted equipment is sent to the Depot and can be mounted on another vehicle. Also, you can destroy complex and improved equipment for free. In this case, it is permanently removed from the vehicle.

To demount one complex equipment item, you can use a Demounting Kit, which is spent upon activation. It can be received in a Reward for Merit for participation in the in-game activities.

The received Demounting Kit is permanently stored in the Depot. You can view available Demounting Kits in the Stock section on the Consumables tab.

Please note that Demounting Kits cannot be sold.

Demounting Kits can be used for certain equipment items:

  • Coated Optics
  • Enhanced Gun Laying Drive
  • Fill Tanks with CO2
  • Cyclone Filter
  • Vertical Stabilizer
  • Additional Grousers
  • Gun Rammer
  • "Wet" Ammo Rack
  • Improved Ventilation
  • Spall Liner
  • Enhanced Springs

To demount complex equipment with a Demounting Kit:

  1. Choose the slot with complex equipment over the vehicle panel and click Demount.
  2. In the confirmation window, choose the Demounting Kit and click Demount.
