What's on your mind?
This wiki is HEAVILY outdated, expect a revamp soon (at least for the tanks).
(edited by RandomGunDealer)
I want to know if you guys think just like me they should ad this tank, also known as objekt 640, if adding this tank, i can give you the armour dimensions, i know the dimensions
I feel as if that Germany at ranks 3 and 4 are very op for example the tiger 2 p and h, need to have there br's increased to 7.0 and 6.7 respectably so that it is more fair and fun for tanks at those br's like the t26
AMX-30 (1972)/AMX-30: These two tanks are great at their BR. It's best to choose between the two, with the differences being that the AMX-30 (1972) has a 20mm cannon, and he AMX-30 has no 20mm cannon but is a premium. Both have a good gun, with 400mm HEAT (not HEAT-FS sadly), and overall good stats.
AMX-13-90: A great light tank. Has a 90mm autoloaded cannon with 5 sec reloads, and a 320mm pen HEAT-FS shell. Mobility is also great, and overall it's just a very reliable and powerful light tank.
AMX-50 Surbaisse: Quite a powerful heavy tank. The armor is a little light for a heavy tank, and with HEAT-FS it's gonna not be as effective. Mobility is good, and gets you around well. The gun on the other hand, is great. 6 second reload, a 120mm cannon, and a 300mm pen APBC shell that does a LOT of damage.
Lorraine 40t: Another light tank, it has many similarities to the AMX-13, but this tank has a 100mm cannon with a sec autoloader. The shells also have up to 270mm pen, and do quite a bit of damage. Mobility is even better on this tank than the AMX-13, and the profile is lower.
AMX-13 DCA: This is a decent anti air, even at this tier. It's surprisingly accurate for a 40mm gun, and any plane it hits will instantly explode. Mobility is the same as the AMX 13, so don't worry about that.
F84G-26-RE: It's an F84, so expect what you get from one. All F84s have great CAS capabilities, and are generally good planes.
Strv m/42 DT: This is actually a pretty decent tank. It has a 75mm cannon with access to a very powerful APCBC shell, which has 149mm of flat pen and 150g of explosive filler, and this cannon has a 3.9 second reload. Armor and mobility is pretty meh, but the gun is where it really shines.
Ikv 103: Most of it's stats are pretty meh, except for mobility, which is slightly better than most. It's reload isn't great, at 13 seconds stock, but it's shells are where it really shines, with 400mm HEAT-FS at 5.0. And with the cannon being as large as 105mm, this shell will 1 shot almost anything at it's BR.
Lvkv 42: This is a pretty good anti-air. It has good mobility, with a very powerful and accurate 40mm autocannon. Overall, just great, and the 40mm has access to SAPHEI, which is lethal if it penetrates.
Pvkv m/43: Like the Ikv 103, all of it's stats are quite meh except for the gun. THe reload isn't too shabby, at 8.7 secs stock, but it has access to a very powerful 75mm APDS shell with 260mm of pen flat. It's default round is also the already powerful APCBC with explosive filler, so expect good performance from this gun
T18B1/2: The B2 has 2 20mm autocannons, a 57mm cannon, and a 13mm machine gun. These guns will destroy most tanks and planes, and it has a very good payload, of up to 8 50kg bombs and 8 rockets. The B1 has he same guns, but without the 57mm cannon. The payload is much higher on this one though, with up to 2 600kg bombs and 8 rockets. Both are decently agile, and have defensive guns.
Type 90B: In terms of penetration and armor, it is lacking, with the 2A4 chassis and the JM33 as the best shell. In terms of mobility, it is VERY mobile, with a top speed of 73 km/h, and a top reverse speed of 34 km/h. Turret traverse is slower than most at 17 degrees per sec at stock, but where this tank really shines is the reload. It has a 4 second autoloader, which means follow up shots will happen VERY quickly. That can help with the low pen, as you might be able to damage the tank first and then quickly after follow up with a lethal shot.
Type 89: This IFV is extremely effective, even though it has a lower BR of 8.3. The 35mm autocannon is one of the most powerful in game, and shreds through side armor with it's APDS shells. It also has access to ATGMs that have 700mm of pen, which aren't the most effective, but will kill most tanks instantly. Mobility is another powerful attribute of this tank, at it is VERY fast, and the turret rotates very fast.
Type 16: As a wheeled light tank, you get what you expect. You get a decent gun, just good enough to handle most MBTs, you have light armor, and extremely good mobility. Everything about it is okay, and overall it's a good light tank.
Type 93: This is a SPAA truck, that can scout. It has good missiles, that can take care of most aircraft, and it has AMAZING mobility. The mobility might be the best in game, and the scouting ability combined with it makes it a really fun vehicle to use. Basically, just bounce around and scout vehicles while taking out the occasional aircraft.
AH-64DJP: It's just an AH64 in the japanese tech tree.
F4EJ: It's a pretty good jet, and it's just a japanese phantom, so expect what you'd get out of a phantom.
US: The M3A3 is an amazing IFV, with a good 25mm autocannon that shoot APFSDS rounds with 100mm of pen. It also has access to top-down ATGMs with 430mm of pen. It's quite speedy, and it's guns are something to behold. The largest problem with the tank is that the autocannon is a little slow compared to others, and the caliber is already smaller, making it not quite as effective.
Germany: The Beglietpanzer 57 is a very good IFV. The 57mm autocannon is very powerful, and it packs a massive punch, especially with the APHE shells. It is also extremely fast, you do get access to ATGMs, but they're not the best at only 630mm of pen. The biggest problem though, is the slow turret traverse at 12 degrees per second.
USSR/Russia: There are multiple, but overall the BMP-2M is most likely the strongest. It has the classic 30mm autocannon with a very high firerate, and the strongest ATGMs in game at 1200mm of pen. Mobility is a little lacking in comparison though, as the reverse speed only reaches 10km/h. It also has a 30mm automatic grenade launcher, which is somewhat useful.
Britain: The Warrior is the best one available to Britain, but sadly, it's just not good. At a first look, the ATGMs and 30mm autocannon look nice, but the mobility on this thing is just absolute crap. Overall, just not great, and really outclassed by things like the BMP and Bradley.
Japan: The Type 89 is absolutely amazing. Great mobility, good ATGMs at 700mm of pen, and an absolutely amazing gun. The autocannon is the same 35mm one that is on the Gepard, so it shreds through almost all tanks. It also has the same APDS shell on the Gepard, with over 125mm of pen.
China: The ZBD86 is literally just a BMP-1. Needs no further explanation.
Italy: The Dardo is basically, just a Bradley with a much faster firing gun. It also has the same ATGMs, and the mobility is about the same.
France: Sadly, France has no IFVs.
Sweden: The Strf 9040 series is great, but the Strf 9040 BILL is great. In the best way possible, this is just a better Bradley. It has an amazing 40mm autocannon, with a FASTER firerate than the Bradley, and the ATGM is also top down, but it has even more pen than the Bradley's. The Bradley's top-down ATGM has 430mm of pen, while this one has 550. This vehicle is extremely powerful, and should not be slept on.
This lineup has 5 slots.
Strv 122B: It's pretty much an up armored Leopard 2A5. Overall, a very good tank, and because of the better armor it's much more survivable than most NATO tanks. When it comes to the gun, it's the same as the Leopard 2A5, with the same shells. Still very mobile, and the turret traverse is also still great.
CV 90120: A VERY good light tank. High mobility, and the gun is amazing. It has over 600mm of pen, with a 5 sec reload, making it extremely effective. The only major issue is has is the slower turret traverse.
ItO 90M: A good SPAA, it's a lot like the FlaRakRad, and it even has the same missiles. Overall, a good top tier SPAA.
Strf 9040 BILL: A really good IFV, with access to top-down ATGMs and a 40mm autocannon with really good APFSDS shells that have a lot of pen. the ATGMs have 550mm of pen, while the APFSDS shell shot from the autocannon have up to over 130mm of pen, which is really good for an autocannon. The 40mm size also makes the shells do much more damage, adding to the lethality.
SAAB-105OE: I try not to include premiums, but Sweden really lacks in good attack aircraft. This plane can hold 30mm autocannons, air to air missile, and AGMs, but it's flight performance really isn't special. Overall, a good attack aircraft, but most planes will beat it in flight perf.

This lineup has 6 setups, if you only have 5, choose between the T72B and T64B
T72B: A very powerful tank at 9.7, and it is basically an up armored T72A, but now covered in Kontakt-1 ERA, making you almost invulnerable to HEAT shells. The gun isn't upgraded, but the shells are, with the best HEAT-FS in game, and the 3BM42 Mango shell, which is incredibly powerful at this BR. Turret rotation is slow though, and the mobility is quite lacking against NATO tanks. It also has access to a 700mm pen ATGM.
T64B: Pretty much the T72 but smaller, and less armor. It also has a lot of Kontakt-1 ERA, so it is also very well protected. It has access to almost all of the same shells, except for the ATGM which has 50 less mm of pen. It also has access to better sights, which is a very good advantage.
BMP 2M/BMP 3/Object 685: Same reason as before. They are all very powerful tanks, and are very effective as light tanks and IFVs.
ZSU-23-4/ZSU-37-2: Same reason as before, they're just versatile and powerdul SPAAs.
SU-7BKL/Yak 38: The SU-7 is a supersonic attack jet, that can hold up to 6 S24 rockets, a very lethal package. It also has 2 30mm autocannons, which also pack quite a punch. The Yak-38 has access to many things including AGMs, and it is also VTOL, making landing much quicker. It is also quite fast, but not quite supersonic.
Mi-24P: This is a great helicopter. It can hold R60s, AGMs, S80 rockets, and hold a large payload. It also has a 30mm autocannon, adding onto it's already powerful arsenal. Speed is decent, and overall, it is a very powerful helicopter.
This lineup has 6 slots, if you only have 5, choose between the T72A and T64A.
T72A: A very capable tank. The first T72 you unlock, and the gun is just amazing for it's tier. You have a 7 second autoloader, with very powerful APFSDS shells, and the 3OF26 HE shell, which is a ton of fun to use. Armor is strong, and will stop most APFSDS shells at this BR from the front. Mobility is very lacking, especially in reverse speeds, and the turret traverse is quite underwhelming, but overall, it's advantages far outweigh the disadvantages.
T64A: Pretty much the T72A with slightly better mobility, smaller size, and worse armor. A great backup, and it has it's advantages over it too. Almost everything else is the same.
BMP-2M/BMP-3/Object 685: BMP-2M has the best ATGMs, BMP-3 for HE fun, and the Object 685 if you want a tank gun on your BMP. It all comes down toe preference, although imo the BMP-2M is the most effective. Both the BMP-3 and 2M have the 30mm autocannon, which is incredibly powerful, and the BMP-3 has access to a 100mm cannon that can shoot ATGMs and HE shells. the BMP-2M has access to the most powerful ATGMs in the game, with 1200mm of pen. the Object 685 has a 100mm cannon with a 6 sec autoloader, and it can shoot APFSDS with over 300mm of pen. It also gets access to APCBC with he filler that has over 250mm of pen, which if aimed right, is an amazing shell.
ZSU-23-4/ZSU-37-2: Both are great SPAAs, with the ZSU-23 being better for a more AA approach, and the ZSU-37 for a more tank and plane approach because of the more powerful gun.
Yak 28: The Yak 28 is a supersonic jet bomber that can hold a very lethal load of a 3000kg bomb. Overall, a very good plane for this lineup, and it can get out of many situations because of it's amazing speed.
Mi-24A: A very good helicopter, with a .50 cal machine gun, and it can hold up to 4 AGMs, and 128 rockets in one load. Pretty good, and it's also quite fast.
T-126: Very similar to the T-50. I wouldn't exactly say it's worth it, but it's good. It's basically the T-50 with much better armor and much worse mobility. In my opinion, the this isn't really worth it because of the mobility being made much worse. To put it into prespective, the T50 has a top speed of 72, while this has a top speed of 36. Not great for a light tank, and remember the T50 already has good armor.
Costs 850 GL
SU-76M (5th Gv.Kav.Corps): This is just a SU-76M with the premium bonuses. Honestly I'd say this is worth it. The SU-76M is already an amazing TD at 2.0, but the largest problem is you have to find it on the market.
Find it on market.
ZUT-37: Honestly this is just the soviet Wirbelwind. The 37mm autocannon on this thing shreds through everything. Armor is also pretty decent on it. Honestly really worth it.
Costs 1000 GL
SU76D: Has similar performance to the SU57B, the only difference being it has a 76mm cannon instead. Not worth it, as the gun isn't an improvement over anything and the hull itself is also not great. You also have to find it on the market rather than just buying it.
Find it on market
SMK: Ah yes, the soviet land battleship. This thing is a hell of a lot of fun. It's massive has a ton of armor, has 2 guns, which consist of a 45mm and a 76mm, and is thicc as fuck.
Cost: 1300 GL
BT-7 F32: Imagine the BT-7 right, a great light tank. Now imagine it with a 76mm cannon on it. how does that sound? Has to be bought on market.
Find on market
BM-13N: The russian rocket milk truck. You get 20, and it's absolutely cracked now because of overpressure. Ton of fun, and well, its a milk truck. Has to be found on market.
Find on market
MK-II "Matilda": It's just a Matilda with a Russian 76mm cannon. Get it if you really want to, I wouldn't say it's really too worth it. As with all Matildas, the armor is great, but the mobility is crap. The cannon also fixes the problems the Matilda has with post-pen damage.
Find on market
МК-IX "Valentine": It's just a Valentine but with premium bonuses and it's russian. Another copy paste vehicle, and it's fine.
Find on market.
SU-85A: Imagine the SU-76M with an 85mm cannon. There you go. Not super worth it, but still good.
Find on market
T-34 (1st Gv.T.Br.): Pretty much the T34 1941 but with premium bonuses. The non-premium is already really good, but this is still worth it enough.
Find on market
T34E: The T34 1941, but with spaced armor. The armor is great, and does wonders against HEAT. I'll say that this is well worth it.
Find on market
T34 Prototype: it's pretty much a T34 1940 with premium bonuses. Pretty decent.
Find on market.

Honestly, this is one of the better ones. Because of the new shells and 11.0, top tier is a lot less compressed now, and the new tanks and planes are all relatively balanced. The new russian tanks and shells make it able to compete with NATO, and the premiums that were added are all not too OP, and are just mostly fun and good.
A long time ago i think like 2 years ago the mouse was the ruler of 7.7 but now there is cause and death
Hello everyone, I have $125 to spend on war thunder and I was wondering what I should spend it on. I always use planes, and I was wondering if I should buy a bundle or golden eagles to buy a plane, and what planes would you recommend buying. I like to attack enemy aircraft and want a good plane that is good at dogfights.
IS-1: At 5.3 it does extremely well. Armor is very good and the 85mm is very strong.
IS-2: For a 5.7 heavy it is very powerful. Reload is extremely long but the firepower and armor are extremely powerful.
IS-2 (1944): Pretty much the IS-2 with more armor. Still a really good tank.
IS-3: At 7.0 it really struggles. It's better than it was before but HEAT-FS really is it's downfall. Too slow and cumbersome to really compete sadly.
IS-4M- Same problems with the IS-3, although maybe worse because of the higher BR.
IS-6: To this day, this tank is amazing. Mobility is REALLY good for a heavy, and it really makes this tank 10x better. I don't recommend buying it though, as it is very expensive.
IS-7: Armor is great, 10 sec autoloader, amazing shells, and mobility is decent. Really good, but it costs almost 1000$ to buy.
T-10A: Sadly, this is not good at all. Armor is decent, but not really enough to make up for the other faults. It really isn't good.
T-10M: A lot better than the T-10A, but still struggles a lot. 400mm pen APFSDS is good, but is still behind.
Object 279: Armor is super powerful. This can survive most APFSDS shells and the firepower is insanely good. 11 second reload also really helps.
Rank 1- LVT A4
At 1.3 the 75mm will destroy anything. With overpressure the He rounds will make all of the light tanks explode.
Rank 2- M4A5
It's basically a Sherman with slightly better armor and the British 57mm gun. Not too expensive, and the gun is pretty powerful.
Rank 3- T20
A great tank, it's small and has decent armor with a powerful gun. At 6.0 the gun gets a little less powerful but it's still a great tank.
Rank 4- Super Hellcat
It's basically the Hellcat but with a 90mm cannon. Is a bit expensive but is really worth it.
Rank 5- T54E1
Has a 105mm cannon with a 5 sec autoloader. At 8.0 you'll see more APFSDS, and it's a bit expensive, but the other parts of this tank make it very powerful.
Rank 6- XM1 GM
The prototype of the Abrams. A very capable tank at 9.3. It also has pretty decent armor.
How did you guys got introduced to war thunder ?!
