The Mighty Behemoth VK 168.01 (P)Jul 19, 2019 - Community Announcementshttps://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/6d935fcd5438d4834d4cab4af560715ef4f9e7e9.jpg What's that rumble? Why is the ground on all maps trembling? Since when do two-story buildings drive around battlefields mowing down innocent tanks? Stop panicking! This is not an assault of titans. It's the new German Premium VK 168.01 (P), which has joined the battle. A massive, heavily armored tank equipped with a 128 mm club of a gun, this tank gives "heavy" a whole new meaning. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PhpN0zR1m2g Hurry up to the in-game Store till August 2 and buy yourself a bundle: the VK 168.01 (P) with the Hardy Rare camouflage and full equipment or just the VK 168.01 with a Garage slot. Enjoy the might of this German behemoth at your disposal and swat away enemies like bugs! A steel titan joins the battle! The VK 168.01 (P) represents one of the projects preceding the emergence of the most monstrous creation of German tank building, the legendary Maus. That explains the similar characteristics these vehicles share, with adjustments for the differences in tiers: https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/79501e941be0889c26d55b6c34b08cd838b5aae2.jpg The Titan's Armor The VK 168.01 (P) amply justifies the title of a super heavy tank. Its front is protected with 180 mm of armor on the hull and 230 mm on the turret. No wonder many enemy shells fail to damage this steel giant. The enemy might as well be attacking it with a bow and arrow or throwing tennis balls! https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/2ab31bcd2850f3fa7928004e79e70de7ce8895b8.jpg Its sturdy sides with supplementary screens over the double tracks help the VK 168.01 (P) absorb damage even more effectively by sidescraping. The same is true for the turret. Take a hint from the experienced Maus-keepers and turn the turret a little to the side in between shots. No self-respecting colossus will enter battle without giving the enemy a chance to win. That's why the armor of the VK 168.01 (P) has several weak spots. It's nothing new: the lower armor plate, the commander's cupola, and the machine gun nest will help a skilled opponent even the odds in this epic showdown. The Giant's Club The impressive gun of the VK 168.01 (P) indeed resembles a heavy club. Its 16-second-long backswing is followed by a somewhat inaccurate, but highly devastating 460 HP blow! https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/e4881e7462c9eb2a484d9a4e51d0329d6db64c21.jpg The penetration is high enough to pierce the frontal armor of most Tier VII–VIII vehicles. Even if the main armor doesn't cave, the shells are guaranteed to deliver damage to weak spots. Fighting Tier IX armored tanks will be harder, but that's when the APCR shells capable of 390 HP of damage will come in handy. Thanks to its configuration characteristics, the VK 168.01 (P) has a good chance of succeeding in a toe-to-toe c...Update 6.1Jul 10, 2019 - Community Announcementshttps://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/368532861d54db055098882b0aa531286b396d8b.jpg Prepare your devices for Update 6.1, which rolls out July 10.

Even though they were classified, the technology used in them as well as their combat capabilities have inspired and caught the attention of many. And it’s not just idle curiosity… Recently, Elona Muskonskaya, head of the largest technology corporation Hybrid Nation, announced that in celebration of the 5th anniversary of the start of global tank competitions, three Premium vehicles will be available, along with attachments for each. Moreover, these new vehicles will be among the prizes for drawings, so any of the celebration’s guests will be able to acquire them! The Lineup Elona took a sly peek into the folder that contained all the plans for the next day’s presentation. She will utter the words, “Everyone needs a Defender!”, and the lights will go out on stage. When the lights are turned back on, people will see three magnificent tanks, all with the latest tech, a formidable look, and almost silent electric drives. Welcome the Hybrid Nation’s Y5 Series tanks! https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/478d62b42531232974ee723a713e9d818c9353c9.gif These three vehicles are united by the light hull taken from the speedy Cromwell, a powerful electric engine, a high power-to-weight ratio, and a “nuclear reactor” kit in an expanded configuration. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/d3d2b6e7b2d982b1dc1ea5defb8bffb1fa0e4537.jpg Y5 T-34—the entry-level model, which is equipped with a T-34 turret. It features a powerful cannon with a mix of quick aiming time and high damage per shot, but a low rate of fire. The penetration is good enough to hit targets in any high-maneuver battle. Plus, the gun offers 10 degrees of gun depression, so you can take advantage of the terrain. The cherry on top is its small turret, making it hard for enemies to hit it! https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/e6beeb24bb76d735e4f637d4098664cbd405f23c.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/6a5752451920cc12c2c27fc8a77b5a74351ab2b6.jpg Y5 Firefly—the mid-range model of the Y5 Series. You’ll find a modified Sherman Firefly turret mounted. This vehicle can reach speeds of up to 55 km/h, is highly maneuverable, and wields a fast-firing weapon capable of dealing significant damage per minute. The gun also has a great angle of depression, which comes in handy when trying to preserve your precious hit points! https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/99be7033fad07b61775f8ffa2dd207f7903775c7.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/33314c487f5e02003688b5084412cb2b2dc97580.j..."Blitz Turns 5!"

Today, we are tracking an amazing animal tank, right in its natural habitat. A native of the British Isles, you might know the Badger by its Latin name: FV217 Badger. This beast has a thick skin, sharp teeth, powerful claws and is very hot-tempered. Should it find its prey, the usually calm and docile creature turns into a ferocious and destructive predator! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIUHfmlQ9Is Good news: you can tame this predator and it will gladly follow your commands! New containers have just arrived, and you might just find the FV217 Badger lurking in one of them. Open them up and get this Collector Tier X TD with the “Royal Reception” attachment. The “Esquire” legendary camouflage will give it the natural look it bears in the wild! https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/015874186b621bd41d042b265d35b9cc684b18c1.jpg The Badger’s Lifestyle and Habits Place of Origin: British Isles The vehicle was based on a British heavy tank, the Conqueror. And although, according to official reports, the project was curtailed at an early stage, the Badger actually got loose and can be found in several locations: the burning desert sands, the arctic and it even found its way into concrete bunkers. According to the observations of leading tankologists, the Badger has impressive characteristics: https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/746c1c1d5d55b44a6482fb31933f79dd5b5f5db7.jpg Bone Structure and Appearance The Badger’s hull is stocky, squat and features sloping armor in the front. Like most TDs, the FV217 has no turret and relies on a decent supply of hit points and its thick exterior in combat. Even heavy tanks will wish they could handle enemy attacks like the Badger! The especially strong armor is located in the front of the hull: here enemy shells will have to deal with up to 280 mm of steel! The main protected sectors are 215 mm thick, but taking the steep slope into account, it’s more like 350 mm! To deal any damage to this Badger head on, enemies will need to hit the lower plate. But this doesn’t necessarily guarantee penetration: thanks to the sloping, its effective thickness reaches 250 mm. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/4922b91d21a552b4d5b494228ce591ea6f772777.jpg Under normal conditions, the Badger wears the standard British colors, but prefers to fight in the legendary Esquire camouflage, bearing the “Royal Reception” attachment. The camo gives the vehicle a gray-white color that badgers are known for and its title will change to “Badger, Esq.” in battle. The attachment adds a menacing mine trawl and machine gun shield that lets you know it’s “teatime”! You’ll have better luck trying to break through the Badger’s sides, but don’t celebrate too early!

All the usual tips and comforts have remained in regular and rating battles. Key features of the realistic battle: No armor highlighting is available in Sniper Mode. Armor penetration and damage do not vary: if a vehicle's characteristics mention 148 mm as a shell's average penetration and 340 mm as average damage, then the gun will always penetrate 148 mm of armor and deal 340 HP of damage. An HE shell can cause lower splash damage if it hits more protected parts of armor. Enemy vehicles are not displayed on the minimap. The opponents' vehicles are visible at any distance unless they are hiding behind obstacles. The light bulb doesn't flick on if you've been spotted by an enemy. Markers above the enemy vehicles are displayed only when the enemy falls into the aiming circle. Allies can also see the markers above an enemy vehicle when it's been hit or rammed, or when the “Destroy objective” command has been given. Icons of consumables and damaged modules are not displayed above the opponents' vehicles. The Enemy Spotted ribbon does not show. Battles are held only in Supremacy mode on the Desert Sands, Oasis Palms, Rockfield, Normandy, Dead Rail, and Winter Malinovka maps. Realistic battles can only be accessed using Tier V-X vehicles.

It once seemed impossible to build this vehicle with the Hetzer's hull and a more powerful medium tank gun in steel, but now you can appreciate the realization of this idea in World of Tanks Blitz. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/ba284aff62257a6b936dbee4c6d83d85a60146aa.jpg The gun of the Krupp-38(D) is already known to many of you thanks to the Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. G or the Pz.Kpfw. V/IV. This gun is one of the most accurate for Tier V. It aims really quickly, deals 160 HP of damage with an AP shell, and penetrates up to 110 mm of armor. Good gun stabilization and a quick turret make this tank a great tool for destroying the ELC AMXs and the Leopards. Coping with their armor for this gun is like multiplying two by two for a pupil. Your shells will also bring welcome damage to medium tanks. Heavy tanks will be more difficult to destroy, but flanking maneuvers and shooting at vulnerable sides and rear will help you resolve this issue. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/ed8b742e2f190c1d0cb8d207b8004c4188be821e.jpg The imposing single-shot damage delivers major blows to enemy tanks' hit points. But don't forget to take cover when necessary: the average rate of fire makes machine gunning impossible. If you have no way out, just go ahead disabling enemies and destroying them then and there. Good accuracy and stabilization will help you. The quick turret will allow you to change your target easily and save you in a high maneuver battle since the chassis of this machine is relatively slow. If any agile tank invites you to "a spin dance", you'll hardly have time to point your protective front armor. However, the high turret traverse speed will let you take aim at the enemy and battle on equal terms, perhaps even sending the "dancer" to the Garage prematurely. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/c0ddcccc5cad322a4bbac776b1786e21d6c5ce88.jpg Although this tank is not brilliant at turning, it has absolutely no problems with dynamics. Having chosen your tactics at the beginning of battle, hurry up to take the most advantageous position on the map. It will take the Krupp-38(D) 5-6 seconds to increase its speed to 30 km/h, and if the road is straight and flat, it will do an even 40 km/h. You'll have enough time both to take a good position and...Triumphant VictoryMay 3, 2019 - Community Announcementshttps://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/efa6f49d2191548381057e1c1e9e3350f7682573.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/07ba4891f0447b60a0659159dd026f09f9634ebd.png A tank capable of breaching enemy defenses, attacking from the flanks, and inflicting a first strike always comes in handy in battles.

Balance Improvements Read the Balance Improvements in Update 5.10 article to see all the stats. We enhanced the armor of the sides, lower and upper glacis plates, hatches, and commander's cupolas for many Tier VI heavies so that they feel more confident when opposing Tier VII vehicles on the battlefield. To simplify module research at lower tiers, we replaced or removed inefficient guns and engines for several vehicles, as well as added missing types of shells or increased their number. All the shells for replaced or removed guns will be refunded in full.

Hexagons This camouflage's pattern consists of hexagons.

Each container will guarantee a random reward. *Caution: You may feel sorry for the enemy! How is the AMX 30 B as a tank? Without being modest: great! From the first seconds of combat, the AMX 30 B impresses with its mobility, excellent gun depression and a pretty decent weapon. Look at its stats and see for yourself: https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/d864d5658864992f4f4e62c05c75c0a32f6c620e.jpg The closest competitor of the AMX 30 B is the researchable Leopard 1. If you know what the German “cat” is capable of, then you can easily imagine the potential of its French counterpart. Both tanks are lacking in armor, but they can move fast, deal a good amount of damage and skillfully use features of combat locations. If the AMX 30 B falls into the hands of a knowledgeable commander, the enemy team will have a tough time! AMX 30 B flutters like a 35-ton butterfly According to the speed and dynamic characteristics of the AMX 30 B, it will be clipping at the heels of the Leopard 1. Without equipment, the French tank accelerates to 30 km/h in just 3 seconds, and within 10 can hit speeds above 60 km/h. The tank easily climbs steep slopes and can quickly occupy key positions: a classic ride up the mountain on Mines takes you about 15-20 seconds (even without the Engine Power Boost!). https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/0d55f2ffa9e979a2deec3cc0d6942b63f94a1276.jpg The AMX 30 B stands out thanks to its excellent maneuverability. You will enjoy the precision and responsiveness of its control. On the AMX 30 B, you’ll easily take sharp turns and be able to dodge shells. Catching this tank on the fly and taking an accurate shot is a serious test for the enemy. AMX 30 B stings like a huge bee The dealer of the painful and devastating stings is a quick-firing 105-mm gun. With it, you will make plenty of holes in the sides and the rear of enemy targets. Even penetrating the frontal armor of various foes is quite feasible. If you find yourself taking on a shy enemy, fenced off from the outside world with especially thick armor, you’ll need a HEAT shell, which boasts 295-mm armor penetration. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/2940d12f9e7de2bfd1cfbe0b1eef4b2c3a23b02a.jpg But it makes little sense for the agile AMX 30 B to trade damage in ...Update 5.9Mar 27, 2019 - Community Announcementshttps://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/27ca21284de6198d55b86cd6ce423a2bf1e66a97.jpg Reworked vehicle characteristics on the updated screen, a new camouflage, start of the Spring Season, a multiple x2 bonus for your first victory in a tank, improved equipment for Tier V–VI vehicles, the return of Mad Games...

And you are probably already enjoying this video about Update 5.9 that takes effect on March 27. https://youtu.be/x9LFDAi4y1s Screen with Vehicle Characteristics The vehicle characteristics panel on the Upgrades screen is now divided into two tabs. Brief Characteristics include six parameters: damage, rate of fire, penetration, armor, speed, and rotation. The indication system works like this: Yellow shows the current parameter. Red and green allow you to see the difference in parameters when switching between modules. Light-gray shows the maximum value that can be achieved if you mount all top modules. The bar is filled based on the comparison of the selected vehicle's parameters with the maximum possible values among vehicles of all tiers. Some old parameters displayed in the Detailed Characteristics tab were renamed (e.g. Armor -> Main Armor). Plenty of new parameters were added: reload time, damage per minute, depression/elevation angles, gun traverse limits to the left / to the right, maximum forward/reverse speed, average speed, power-to-weight ratio, road/ground/water crossing capacity. For autocannons: bursts per magazine, burst reload time, shells in magazine.

You can use the x2 bonus as many times as the number of Tier X vehicles you have in your Garage.

That stinking smell means another wave of zombies is approaching (where did they come from, anyway?). The fear had barely sunk in when a massive shell levelled the brainless army to the ground. Nothing but smoke and a burnt hole were left. The engine roar is getting closer, and you can see a familiar silhouette with new details: shells, lightning bolts, and spikes. A fragile pink-haired creature jumps out of the tank's hatch.

Yes, you heard that right: when she’s not saving the world, she drinks coke, chows down on combat rations, and takes peaceful naps right inside the iron machine. Of course, she wouldn't risk putting herself in danger by living in an unsafe shelter. The Smasher's hull armor is quite strong to give her enough time to wake up, stretch a bit, yawn, tidy her hair, and get rid of the enemy with a single shot after the shooting starts. Damage from inattentive enemies will be blocked by the stylish track and turret shields. https://youtu.be/ebd-fuSZzas Of course, it's not all shielded: to damage this heavy tank, you only need to attack its sides or rear with a fast vehicle. Add a not too prompt turret and low traverse speed to it, and you'll see why this girl spent a couple of years learning about smart positioning. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/7e2d3dd5f8ed1a66843b77e9ffe2437ee0832ef7.jpg In order to hold a position properly, it wouldn't hurt to add some speed. You won't be able to chase the Dracula or the Bullpup with this heavy tank loaded with equipment and a couple cases of Cola, however, it always reaches its speeds of 35 km/h forward and 12 km/h backward.

In the first fight, this heavy came up against several enemy tanks… and the Defender destroyed them all; it was almost too easy.

The siren then blared, and the gate opened, the rays of the sun beamed down and hit the blackened armor. At the rear of the vehicle and on its long-barreled gun lightning sparked, and the black armored vehicle soon shot off. This was the T28 Defender seeking its first fight, and it will soon go down in history. Until 8 March, you will have the opportunity to get your hands on the T28 Defender, or if you prefer, get both of these unique machines, the IS-3 Defender and T28 Defender, with full equipment loadouts. Get hold of these unstoppable powers! Dossier: T28 Defender A folder with these documents was found in a roadside motel room in Nevada.

We never get any information ahead of time, it’s all on a day-to-day basis. The work plan, if such a thing exists, is kept somewhere among the black jackets, but the soldiers stand guard up at the entrance to their wing at all hours of the day. They say it’s for our safety. I don’t believe a word of it. Increased Protection A T28 Prototype was delivered to the base and then the project name was revealed—Defender. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/26494313/d1f495d637332565ef424f1c70a09548ce069ac5.jpg The first point was strengthening the armor. We increased the thickness of the turret’s front to 215 mm, then we added a roof for extra protection. When the TD was on the firing and artillery range, tests showed that at mid- to long-range, the turret could withstand hits from medium tank weaponry. The frontal armor was left unchanged: 203 mm tilted at such an angle that it’s an effort to hit it at mid-range. Of course, especially powerful weapons at shor...
