Commanders!

One of the main features of Update 0.38 will be the Wars of the Past Battle Path and today we’d like to tell you more about it because there will be some changes in it compared to the last one.



But let’s start with the things that remain the same, such as the basic principles. Once you acquire access to the campaign (the price remains the same), you’ll be earning Battle Coins and spending them on Battle Path progress. Battle Coins will be earned either by just playing or by completing missions.

Four mission sets along with repeatable daily Battle Coin Missions and Challenges will be available like the last time (there are no changes to the Missions or Challenges themselves). And, of course, the popular Battle Coin Shop feature will be making a re-appearance.

This Battle Path doesn’t have a specific topic except for a loose connection to some military topics of the past, but all four of its vehicle prizes come from the former Warsaw Pact countries. They are, in ascending order:

In addition to the vehicles, four Warmonger skins will be available via the standard Level progression for the following vehicles:
  • Merkava Mk.4M Tier 10 MBT (for reaching Level 10)
  • XM1A3 Tier 10 MBT (for reaching Level 50)
  • T-15 Kinzhal Tier 10 Premium TD (for reaching the maximum Level)
  • 2S38 Derivatsiya Tier 8 Premium AFV (obtainable by completing the Elite mission series)

There will, of course, be other prizes as well, such as Decals, Titles, a single Avatar with five stages, Battle Coin boosters, Premium Time, Credits, Gold and Banners. There will also be a special Camouflage with one environmental version awarded per each of the three basic Mission sets.

In fact, there will be more rewards than the last time around, which brings us to the differences.

The biggest one definitely is that the Wars of the Past Battle Path will last 120 days instead of the usual 90 days. In other words, the event will take place between December 2021 and the end of March, 2022.

Correspondingly, we’ve increased the number of Levels from 50 to 60. Levels 1 to 10 will require only a small amount of Battle Coins per Level as usual, Levels 11 to 50 will require 4.500 Battle Coins as before and Levels 51 to 60 will require 7.000 Battle Coins per level. Since extra 70.000 Battle Coins are no joke even with the extended period, we will also be increasing your Battle Coin income as such:
  • Daily Battle Coin missions will award 700 Battle Coins instead of 600
  • The total amount of Battle Coins from Challenges will increase from 70.000 to 80.000 Battle Coins
  • Added an extra Battle Coin booster to the Level progression
Especially the first change represents a major increase in your Battle Coin income as long as you complete those missions diligently. Additionally, we are increasing the prizes as such:
  • Available Premium Time from 37 days to 49 days
  • Available Gold from 600 to 800
  • Available Credits from 60 million to 75 million
The Battle Coin Shop will of course be also updated. Aside from the same items as the last time, you’ll be able to find (if you’re lucky or persistent enough) the following new items in it:
  • CV90 Mk.IV Tier 8 Premium AFV from the last Battle Path
  • CV90105 TML Tier 7 Premium LT from the last Battle Path
  • Stridsvagn 2000 Tier 10 Premium MBT from the last Battle Path
  • Jomsviking skins from the last Battle Path
  • Desert Storm Raid skins (excluding Asad Babil)
And that’s pretty much it. The Battle Path is currently planned to launch on December 9, 2021. If anything in this article caught your eye and you haven’t done so already, you can still purchase discounted access via MY.GAMES Market.

We hope that you’ll enjoy this Battle Path and, as always:

See you on the battlefield!

Between November 26 and December 2, 2021, the following items will be available:


Phoenix Skins


This year, we’ve reached deep into the Greek mythology to bring you three epic skins for Tier 10 progression vehicles. These skins are called Phoenix after a mythical bird forever destined to roam the world on wings of fire, undying and eternal, reborn from its own ashes. Its flames are yours to command. Use its power to burn your enemies to cinders!



The Phoenix skin is available for the following vehicles:
  • Merkava Mk.4M Tier 10 Main Battle Tank
  • Leopard 2AX Tier 10 Main Battle Tank
  • PL-01 Tier 10 Light Tank
All three skins together are available either separately or in a discounted large bundle along with 14 days of Premium Time and 4000 Gold on MY.GAMES Market.






Thunderbird Skins


Once again we have a set of Native American-inspired skins for you, now available for three Tier 10 Premium Main Battle Tanks. The skins feature the imagery of a Thunderbird, a mythical animal said to be guarding the very entrance to the underworld. Summon its frightening power to bring down the fury of lightning and thunder upon your enemies!



The Thunderbird skin is available for the following vehicles:
  • Type 99A2-140 Tier 10 Premium Main Battle Tank
  • Altay Tier 10 Premium Main Battle Tank
  • Armata 152 Tier 10 Premium Main Battle Tank
All three skins together are available in a discounted large bundle along with 30 days of Premium Time and 3000 Gold on MY.GAMES Market.






Eraser Skins


Four gorgeous skins await you. We call them “Eraser” because they just pretty much erase the competition. The truly interesting aspect is the metallic surface each of these skins sports. See as it shines and glitters under the sun of Armored Warfare battlefields. It is truly a wondrous sight to behold!



The Eraser skin is available for the following vehicles:
  • B1 Draco Tier 9 Tank Destroyer
  • Merkava Mk.4 Tier 9 Main Battle Tank
  • M8-120 Thunderbolt II Tier 9 Light Tank
  • Leclerc Tier 9 Main Battle Tank
All four skins together are available in a discounted large bundle.






Centauro 120 Wolf


The Centauro 120 is an advanced version of the Italian Centauro wheeled Tank Destroyer, designed with the goal of further improving its firepower by arming it with the OTO-Melara low-recoil 120mm smoothbore gun in a new HITFACT turret. However, only a few were ever built and most of them for export. You can read more about it in our dedicated article.



In Armored Warfare, the Centauro 120 Wolf is a Tier 9 Premium Tank Destroyer with a special wolf-styled camouflage. Its main feature is a very high damage per shot value as well as sustained damage over time. Its 120mm gun is devastating even against heavily armored opponents, such as the main battle tanks, and it is capable of firing the most advanced NATO rounds. The Centauro 120 is also very mobile thanks to its low weight and powerful engines. This feature allows it to avoid danger, making it a deadly hit-and-run fighter. Mobility is the key to the Centauro, as firing off a few well-placed shots and relocating will leave opponents confused, reeling from the blows and searching for an enemy that is no longer there.






Vickers Mk.7/2 Vanquisher


The Vickers Mk.7/2 was one of the last members of the famous Vickers MBT British tank export series. It was built around the advanced Vickers turret (with a wide range of guns offered as options), combined with a modified Leopard 2 hull. A single prototype was built in 1985, but failed to attract any customers. The tank was never mass-produced but the lessons learned by Vickers from its development were used when designing the Challenger 2 MBT. You can read more about it in our dedicated article.



In Armored Warfare, the Vickers Mk.7/2 is a Tier 8 Premium Main Battle Tank with a special “Vanquisher” British-themed camouflage, well-armored in the best Albion tradition.






AMX-10 RCR Autumn


The AMX 10 RCR is the updated variant of the French AMX 10 RC fire support vehicle by GIAT, originally developed in the early 1980s. This light and nimble wheeled 6x6 AFV was armed with a 105mm gun, allowing it to knock out even armored targets at considerable distances. Over 200 of these aging vehicles were upgraded by Nexter in 2010 with improved armor and electronics, enabling them to fulfill modern battlefield tasks until their eventual replacement by the Jaguar. You can learn more about its history in our dedicated article!



In Armored Warfare, the AMX 10 RCR is a Tier 8 wheeled Premium Tank Destroyer. It’s incredibly agile with its wheeled chassis allowing it to outrun pretty much any enemy on the battlefield save for the fastest AFVs. Its gun accuracy is also top notch, making this vehicle perfect for sniper-style gameplay as its thin armor can’t protect it against enemy shells at close distances. This vehicle also comes with the Hydraulic Suspension active ability.






Rosomak M1M Wataha


The Rosomak is the current standard wheeled IFV of the Polish military. Originally designed by Patria, it was modified and locally license-produced in Poland. It has already seen combat in Afghanistan and fared quite well. Poland plans to obtain more of these vehicles in the future. The M1 is an upgraded Rosomak for the use in Afghanistan. You can read more about it in our dedicated article.



In Armored Warfare, the Rosomak Wataha is a Tier 8 Premium Armored Fighting Vehicle. Compared to the standard Tier 7 Rosomak, it features improved protection as well as the ability to fire Spike guided missiles. It can serve as an excellent heavy scout, a light AFV interceptor and, if needed, as an effective tank killer thanks to its ATGM launcher. Wataha stands in Polish for “a pack of predators” (in this case, wolves) and this vehicle is a ferocious beast indeed. It comes with a Polish-themed military camouflage, a Polish flag attached to its antenna and special Wataha imagery.






Leopard 2 Revolution Wallbreaker


The Leopard 2 Revolution is a continuation of the older Evolution upgrade, intended to improve the performance of the older variants of the Leopard 2 Main Battle Tank in order to make it excel even on the battlefields of the 21st century. The improvements include a comprehensive armor upgrade, ROSY soft-kill APS and smoke grenade launchers as well as an entire suite of cutting edge electronics. You can read more about it in our dedicated article.



In Armored Warfare, the Leopard 2 Revolution is a Tier 8 Main Battle Tank. It is not only well-armored, it also features an extremely accurate 120mm gun with advanced ammunition, allowing it to destroy its opponents at very long ranges, rivaling those of Tank Destroyers. The German tanks in general perform best at longer ranges and the Revolution is no exception.





We hope that you will enjoy the offer and, as always:

See you on the battlefield!

The last prize of the Wars of the Past Battle Path remaining to be announced is the Romanian TR-85M1 Bizonul Main Battle Tank.



The Bizonul (“Bison”) is the last member of a long line of Romanian tanks going back to the 1970s. During the Warsaw Pact era, Romania had been the odd one out, a major outlier in the communist bloc, going “its own way” towards socialism like Albania or former Yugoslavia. For its dictator, Nicolai Ceausescu, this became a major issue after the 1968 invasion of Czechoslovakia. Romania was one of the few Soviet bloc countries that didn’t participate in it along with Albania and Yugoslavia. However, it wasn’t because Ceausescu loved the process of democratization in the 1960s – on the contrary, he hated the reformists as “counter-revolutionaries”, the reasons he condemned the invasion was the fear that the Soviets would meddle in his own affairs.

As a result, Romania started to develop its own (nearly completely locally produced) line of medium tanks roughly similar to the T-54/55 series. The goal was to become completely independent with modern arms production on the Warsaw Pact since Romania (much like former Yugoslavia) couldn’t get their hands on the latest weapons due to its status of an “unreliable ally”.



The first tank of these indigenous vehicles was the TR-77 prototype, designed in 1974. The designation stood for “Romanian Tank, 1977 model”, followed by the production version designated TR-580 (the number stood for engine horsepower) even though the actual production started in 1979 with 405 tanks built until 1985. Contrary to some sources, this tank was not a modified T-55, although it was clearly based on it. Its armament (100mm rifled gun based on a Romanian anti-tank gun) and engine (a local modified version of the V-2 engine) were both locally made. Everything on the tank was fairly rudimentary, roughly on par with a basic T-55.

In parallel with the abovementioned tank’s development, Romanian engineers worked on a new engine based on the MTU design used in the Leopard 1 tank (the plans for which were clandestinely obtained). The work was finished by 1985. Combining the TR-580 tank with this new engine produced a variant called TR-85 (or TR-85-800) because the engine produced some 800-830hp (sources vary). This variant was then put into production between 1986 and 1990 with roughly 400 vehicles built.



By 1990, such production was something Romania could ill-afford and the rearming program collapsed after the fall of communism, leaving the military with hundreds of obsolete tanks the upgrade of which had to be attempted with a very tight budget. However, at the same time, Romania was looking to join the NATO and was in desperate need of some upgrades.

The program to improve the TR-85 tank was launched in 1994 under the designation TR-85M1 Bizonul (“Bison”). The tank received new armor, new FCS and an upgraded engine. Between 1997 and 2009, 54-56 vehicles were upgraded to this standard and it remains the most modern Romanian MBT to this day.



In Armored Warfare, the TR-85M1 Bizonul will be a Tier 5 Premium Main Battle Tank as well as a prize of the Wars of the Past Battle Path campaign, obtainable for reaching Level 20.

But before we tell you more about it, here’s the usual disclaimer:

The numbers below are very preliminary as the vehicle has not been properly tested. They are sure to change and should only be discussed as an indicator of how we’d like to set the vehicle up.

With that being said:

The TR-85M1 will resemble other Soviet Tier 5 vehicles of the same Tier but the lack of protection will be compensated by increased mobility and firepower, giving it a slight slant towards the Light Tank class. Overall, the best tank to compare it to would be the T-55M1.



It’ll feature mediocre composite armor without any active or passive measures, but the mobility will be ensured by its 900hp engine, which is quite a lot for its 50 tons. The maximum speed will reach 60 km/h, but this will be possible to improve via additional progression. This upgrade will:
  • Increase the maximum speed to 75 km/h
  • Improve the hull traverse by 10 percent


Firepower-wise, at first glance, the 100mm gun sounds somewhat underpowered for its Tier, but aside from average penetration and damage values, it’ll also feature some interesting elements such as:
  • Improved propellant module, reducing the penetration over distance penalty
  • Two-round clip, which will be possible to upgrade via additional progression to a three-round one


And last but not least there are the stealth and spotting values, which will start, once again, on average values, but you’ll be able to upgrade them as such:
  • Thermal Imager module providing improved spotting range and the ability to spot through bushes
  • Special Tracks module providing reduced camouflage penalty for moving
In summation, the TR-85M1 Bizonul will be a mid-to-long range fire support vehicle with excellent mobility and utility values, almost like a Light Tank. It’ll come in handy in PvP, but in PvE, it’ll have to stay in the rear in order for it to remain effective.

We hope that you’ll enjoy this MBT as well as the entire Battle Path and, as always:

See you on the battlefield!

This week, we’ve prepared another set of attractive items for you:
  • Panzer 87-140 Tier 10 Premium Main Battle Tank
  • Challenger 2 Streetfighter II Tier 10 Premium Main Battle Tank
  • Leclerc T40 Tier 9 Premium Tank Destroyer
  • Leopard 2 Revolution Tier 8 Premium Main Battle Tank
  • Marder 2 Tier 8 Premium Armored Fighting Vehicle
  • AMX 10 RCR Tier 8 Premium Tank Destroyer
  • Kampfpanzer 70 Tier 6 Premium Main Battle Tank
  • Pile of Gold Loot Crate (with new Key mechanics)
Between November 25 and December 2, 2021, the following items will be available:


Panzer 87-140


The Panzer 87-140 is an experimental version of Panzer 87 (Swiss Leopard 2A4), fitted with a RUAG 140mm smoothbore cannon and an armor kit called WE. It was developed in the 1980s and early 1990s to counter the next generation of Soviet MBTs, but with the collapse of the Soviet Union, the project was shelved, only to resurface around 2005-2006 but never passing the experimental stage. You can read more about it in our dedicated article.



In Armored Warfare, the Panzer 87-140 is a Tier 10 Premium Main Battle Tank. Much like other Leopard series MBTs, it’s a long-range fighter with an extremely powerful gun and the ability to fire with pinpoint accuracy. Even though its armor leaves much to be desired, at long range, this MBT has few equals and can be considered one of the best snipers of its class.

The Panzer 87-140 Tier 10 Premium MBT is available in our Web Shop via Loot Crates. Collect 100 blueprint pieces from these crates to obtain the vehicle.






Challenger 2 Streetfighter II


The Streetfighter II is an upgrade program to overhaul the venerable Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank for the conditions of modern battlefields, especially urban combat. It features a number of improvements and extra components, most notably a dozer blade, a Brimstone ATGM twin launcher and an advanced camera system by Elbit. You can read more about it in our dedicated article.



In Armored Warfare, the Challenger 2 Streetfighter is a Tier 10 Premium Main Battle Tank. Its main advantages include excellent frontal armor (enhanced by the presence of its dozer blade covering its lower frontal plate), increased ramming damage and long range lethality, courtesy of a powerful ATGM launcher. Whether you desire to bring the fighting up close or support other MBTs at distance, the Streetfighter’s got your back.

The Challenger 2 Streetfighter II Tier 10 Premium MBT is available in our Web Shop via Loot Crates. Collect 100 blueprint pieces from these crates to obtain the vehicle.






Leclerc T40


Sometimes called the French Terminator, this vehicle was designed on the Leclerc MBT chassis with one purpose in mind – to accompany tanks and fight off infantry attacks the same way as the Russian BMPT series does. You can read more about it in our dedicated article.



In Armored Warfare, the Leclerc T40 is a Tier 9 Premium Tank Destroyer. It offers you a combination of a durable hull, rapid-fire 40mm automatic cannon and, most importantly, the Javelin missile system. Simply right-click the target, wait until it becomes locket and fire the Javelin ATGM – it will home itself on the target, attacking its weak roof armor. Thanks to this ability, the Leclerc T40 is one of the most destructive vehicles in the game.






Leopard 2 Revolution


The Leopard 2 Revolution is a continuation of the older Evolution upgrade, intended to improve the performance of the older variants of the Leopard 2 Main Battle Tank in order to make it excel even on the battlefields of the 21st century. The improvements include a comprehensive armor upgrade, ROSY soft-kill APS and smoke grenade launchers as well as an entire suite of cutting edge electronics. You can read more about it in our dedicated article.



In Armored Warfare, the Leopard 2 Revolution is a Tier 8 Main Battle Tank. It is not only well-armored, it also features an extremely accurate 120mm gun with advanced ammunition, allowing it to destroy its opponents at very long ranges, rivaling those of Tank Destroyers. The German tanks in general perform best at longer ranges and the Revolution is no exception.






Marder 2


The Marder 2 was an experimental German IFV, developed in the late 1980s to replace the aging Marder IFV. It featured more armor, a new turret and a brand-new Rheinmetall dual-caliber autocannon that could fire both 35mm and 50mm rounds. Despite its qualities, the vehicle was never accepted in service due to its high cost and because it was no longer needed because of the fall of the Soviet Union. A single surviving prototype can be found today in the Koblenz military collection. You can read more about it in our dedicated article.



In Armored Warfare, the Marder 2 is a Tier 8 Armored Fighting Vehicle. With its 44 tons, it’s one of the heaviest and toughest AFVs around. Unlike many other AFVs of its Tier, it is not armed with guided missiles, relying instead on its extremely powerful 50mm autocannon. This vehicle can also deploy Mechanized Infantry.






AMX-10 RCR


The AMX 10 RCR is the updated variant of the French AMX 10 RC fire support vehicle by GIAT, originally developed in the early 1980s. This light and nimble wheeled 6x6 AFV was armed with a 105mm gun, allowing it to knock out even armored targets at considerable distances. Over 200 of these aging vehicles were upgraded by Nexter in 2010 with improved armor and electronics, enabling them to fulfill modern battlefield tasks until their eventual replacement by the Jaguar. You can learn more about its history in our dedicated article!



In Armored Warfare, the AMX 10 RCR is a Tier 8 wheeled Premium Tank Destroyer. It’s incredibly agile with its wheeled chassis allowing it to outrun pretty much any enemy on the battlefield save for the fastest AFVs. Its gun accuracy is also top notch, making this vehicle perfect for sniper-style gameplay as its thin armor can’t protect it against enemy shells at close distances. This vehicle also comes with the Hydraulic Suspension active ability.






Kampfpanzer 70


The Kampfpanzer 70 is the German sibling of the MBT-70. Back in the 1960s, the Germans and the Americans cooperated on the creation of a new, highly advanced Main Battle Tank, armed with a powerful 152mm gun and cutting edge technology. The project was a failure and the tank was never adopted for several reasons, including an extremely high price. You can read more about it in our dedicated article.



In Armored Warfare, the Kampfpanzer 70 is a Tier 6 Premium Main Battle Tank, just like the MBT-70. Although both vehicles generally look the same way, there are some differences. For one, the Kampfpanzer 70 cannot fire the Shillelagh guided missiles, but can use HE ammunition, making it truly deadly against lightly armored opponents.






Pile of Gold


We also have the Pile of Gold Loot Crate for you. This Loot Crate contains copious amounts of Gold for you to win.



This Loot Crate includes:
  • 250.000 Gold
  • 100.000 Gold
  • 50.000 Gold
  • 10.000 Gold
  • 5.000 Gold
  • 1.000 Gold
  • 500 Gold
  • 100 Gold
Starting today, we’re implementing a new mechanic to the MY.GAMES Market Loot Crates (no worries – the in-game crates will remain the same). The mechanic is simple – instead of purchasing the Loot Crates, you purchase keys to them, which you then use to unlock them.

However, please note:
  • Discounts do not apply to Loot Crates, but rather to Keys
  • It is possible to buy multiple keys for a single chest type
  • Keys belong to individual Loot Crates (that is, a key to a Commander Loot Crate purchased now is not guaranteed to work on a Commander Loot Crate a month down the line)
  • Keys can be found in a separate Market section




We hope that you will enjoy the offer and, as always:

See you on the battlefield!
