Take the chance to add the VI M4A3E8 Fury to your collection and see if you can be as successful of a commander as Sergeant Lafayette G. "War Daddy" Pool. The turret with exceptionally hard gun mantlet, an excellent DPM, nice gun handling with respectable dispersion on the move, and depression angles to take advantage of ridgelines will sure be of help.
This is your opportunity to add the iconic German heavy tank VI Tiger 131 and its 100% trained crew with Brothers in Arms as a zero perk to your collection. Experience what a Tiger commander must have felt with good DPM, a reliable gun, and thick armor for side-scraping.
The VI TOG II* remains an oddity as one of the most oversized vehicles in-game and the tank collection at The Tank Museum. But that doesn't mean it can't fare well on the battlefields of World of Tanks. With a stupendous amount of HP, a classic fast-firing 17-pounder gun, and a boatload of shells, this tank is the cornerstone of any defense.
With its good mobility and sloped front, the VI Bretagne Panther protects its teammates with an impressively accurate 75 mm gun and excellent penetration. Meanwhile, a high rate of fire, a large HP pool, and the ability to go on effective ramming rampages make this a fun and versatile medium to command. Add this piece of history and a true gem to your Garage today!
The World of Tanks version of this French heavy tank turned German boasts armor that hardly any of your opponents will be able to penetrate, outstanding aiming time that lets you hit all the right marks and a quick rate of fire. Add the IV Pz.Kpfw. B2 740 (f) to your collection right now and take no prisoners.
The modernized VII IS-2M received external fuel tanks on the rear hull, stowage bins on both sides of the hull, and protective skirting along the top edges of the tracks. This means slightly more HP, bigger ammo capacity, and a somewhat faster aim time than the classic IS-2. Unfortunately, this comes at the cost of some added weight, making the modernized version a little more sluggish but by no means slow. It is one of the best brawlers with tough armor and unmatched alpha damage of 390!
The VIII Rheinmetall Skorpion G is often considered one of the best tank destroyers in-game, as it stings like no other. It is pretty accurate, with a great aim time and high alpha damage. And when you have eight legs to move, you can also count on a good top speed and a decent acceleration to reach the best positions on the map!
The VIII IS-3A combines all the good and some of the bad qualities associated with Soviet heavy tanks and adds an autoreloader on top. The inverse version of the typical autoloader mechanic will reload the last shell fired the fastest. This system makes for great burst potential and ensures that you are never long without another shot in the three-shell clip. If you are familiar with the standard IS-3, switching to the Premium vehicle will be a breeze, but any heavy tank commander will feel right at home.
The ferocious-looking VIII M46 Patton KR is a rare sight in the Premium Shop. Don't miss your chance to add this medium tank with its unique look to your collection and strike fear into the hearts of your enemies. The great gun depression, a rigid turret, and a reliable gun make it a competent support tank.
Use the mobility of the VIII Panzer 58 Mutz to traverse mountain tops or flatlands with ease, pick a spot to ambush your enemies, and take them out with high-velocity shells and good penetration, thanks to an accurate 90-mm gun. Get yours now with a discount and add a mighty bear to your collection.
As the name suggests, the fearsome VIII Object 252U Defender is here to hold its ground and fight to the bitter end. Repel enemy attacks with bouncy frontal armor, or take the fight to the enemy. A hard-hitting 122 mm gun with impressive alpha damage as well as 1,760 DPM and excellent penetration will leave them trembling in terror.
