Soviet Guards - Soviet Tanks Preview

Our Soviet TANKS players are getting some new tanks to hit the battlefield. From the mighty KV-1 Soviet tank to the lend lease tanks from the Allies. To go with these new tank options Soviet players will also have access to a unique set of “Guard” cards that synergise and get better as they fight with other tanks with “Guard” upgrades.

Soviet Guards - Soviet Tanks Preview

In the upcoming Soviet expansions there is an exciting new subset of Crew and Upgrade cards that focus on the Soviet Guards units. Guards are a group of elite Soviet tank crew that have the word “Guards” in their name. Guards Crew cards have great synergy with each other with some getting much better the more Guards you have on your tanks.        The Guards Commander Crew card gives its tank +1 Initiative for each Guard crew cards in its tank. Note this ability also counts him as a Guards Crew card, so even if he is the only Guard crewmember on your tank he will still give out his bonus. If you put him on a KV-1s with three other Guard cards he will give the tank a staggering +4 Initiative, giving you a total of 9 initiative! ...

Lend Lease Support - Soviet Tanks Preview

Leytenant Ivanov swung the cupola of his Valentine, checking that his company were keeping up, their line extending left and right. Valentine, the name always made him think of his little Valentina waiting for him back home. She'd laugh to think this odd-looking English tank had her name. Off to the left, earth fountained amidst the smoke shrouding the village as tanks and artillery pounded the Germans within it. Another village sacrificed to the Motherland, to the war to expel the invaders. The Valentines ploughed on, turrets traversed to watch the village, catching a glimpse now of the bigger T-34s racing towards it. A German gun somewhere in the village was working its deadly trade. At least two tanks had careened to a halt, burning. Closer now, and Ivanov could see the German infantry starting to run from the back of the village as the remaining Soviet tanks entered from the front. N ...

Soviet Steel - Soviet Tanks Preview

The 76mm cannon crashed back, the breech expelling the spent shell case onto the floor. The German machine gun nest was a smoking crater, bodies scattered around it. The tank commander, Lizvinskiy, peered through his periscope, scanning for the next target. Scurrying figures in field grey uniforms, scattered away in all directions. The fascist invaders knew the power of his KV-1 tank was unmatched. Lord of the battlefield, it feared none of the German tanks. The enemy infantry were simply cockroaches to be crushed under the wide rattling tracks. There was only one weapon to fear in the entire German army — the long-barrelled 88mm guns. They could kill a Kliment Voroshilov tank with a single shot, but they were huge guns, mounted on massive crucifix platforms. Hard to hide.   Soviet infantry appeared behind him, finally advancing now that the enemy had been cleared out. Lizvinskiy looked around at the carnage and gave ...

Soviet TANKS Previews

It is time for the Soviet juggernaut to once again be unleashed on the TANKS world. Like the British, the Soviets benefited from the Lend Lease program and received Stuart and Lee tanks from the US, as well as Valentine and Churchill tanks from the UK. Of course they had plenty of their own designs including the fearsome KV, the bane of many a Panzer commander as well as an earlier version of the T-34 that was being manufactured in Stalingrad whilst the fighting drew ever closer. Check out these sneak peeks before they release in August and September.

TANKS FAQ

Over the past couple of months, we have been working a lot more closely with the community and one of the things that has been a high priority for us is to provide a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document. Today we are excited to present the Playtest version of the document.

Because the FAQ has been a long time coming we wanted to make sure that as many of your questions were covered off as possible. So rather than presenting the first version of the FAQ as a completed document we wanted to involve the community as we go through our own internal playtesting process.

In a few weeks once our process is complete, and we’ve had a chance to review your comments and questions we will issue the document as the first Official TANKS FAQ. Of course, in the meantime there is no reason you can’t use it as it stands now.
