In World of Tanks, a class system has been in place since the beginning to keep tanks of various abilities matched up properly in battle with their respective opponents. However, this has a few drawbacks as you go down in tier.

Before tier 5, there are no truly robust heavy tanks- they arrive... more
The Czech people built some truly revolutionary vehicles prior to World War Two- and it is a shame that they all essentially were passed into the hands of the Nazis without so much as a shot fired. In the World of Tanks universe, one of the First Czech tanks to encounter (after the Tier 1 Kolohousenka) is the Panzerkampfwagen 35(t), or LT vz. 35.

When I first started playing World of Tanks, I really liked the fast, nimble tanks that I could dart around in. It wasn't until sometime later that I learned the real value of tough armor over speed in the lower-tier matches, though I still wanted smaller vehicles (like the French Fortress trio) over larger targets. It just made sense to me. Then I saw this thing.

This thing is the Vickers Medium III, and holy smokes, it is... more
