  • Armored Warfare will continue to be updated and supported for years to come with
  • new weapons, vehicles, base elements, and battle modes.


In Armored Warfare, you will find over 130 steel beasts to take command of. These are
divided into five different classes: MBTs, Light Tanks, Tank Destroyers, AFVs and SPGs.
●    MBT: The Main Battle Tank is the toughest class in the game, providing massive
armor, cutting edge active protection systems and deadly firepower in one package.
While it is not as mobile as other classes, it more than makes up for it with its
versatility and ruggedness. 
     Examples: Leopard 2, M1A2 Abrams
   LT: Light tanks are lighter but more mobile counterparts to MBTs. They are not as
well protected, but they are much faster and well-suited for flanking thanks to their
ability to fire accurately on the move. 
     Examples: PL-01, M8 Thunderbolt
   TD: Tank destroyers are fast and lightly armored vehicles with possibly the most
powerful guns in the game. They can seriously threaten practically all the vehicles
they run into, but have to rely on stealth to be successful. They are the snipers of
Armored Warfare, staying hidden while delivering killing blows at long distances. 
     Examples: Centauro 120, M1128 Stryker
●    AFV: The Armored Fighting Vehicles are the scouts of Armored Warfare. They have
an extremely good view range, are very fast and usually very hard to detect thanks to
their generally small sizes. Their main role on the battlefield is to spot enemy vehicles
for their teammates to target and destroy, although some of them pack quite a punch. 
     Examples: Panhard SPHINX, Bradley IFV, BMP series of vehicles
●     SPG: Self-propelled Guns are the indirect fire artillery of Armored Warfare. They are the only class in the game that can fire beyond their line of sight and their guns are
powerful, firing large high explosive shells with large splash radius. SPG players in
the game can use a special artillery point of view that allows them to fire at the
enemy even if the enemy is hidden behind obstacles. In Armored Warfare, artillery is
restricted to the PvE mode, making PvP battles devoid of indirect fire classes
     Examples: PzH 2000, M109A6 Paladin

Engage in challenging, fast-paced player versus player combat. Collaborate with your allies
and execute clever tactics and maneuvers to emerge from battle victorious and your
enemies ground beneath your treads. Armored Warfare is easy to learn, but challenging to

With its revolutionary game mode - Global Operations – Armored Warfare will bring you in
the heart of the modern battlefield. Never seen in tank games before, this unique PvP game
mode blends longer term strategy with moment to moment tactics making your tank play
dynamic and exciting as never before. Capture special zones, call airstrike, get additional
supplies, resist the enemy AI support and get your back AI covered, respawn during the
battle – all this comes on large scale maps for Real Tank Action!

Team up with friends to carry out the most difficult missions sent down to you by command.
These missions will differ depending on the vehicle selected. Only well-coordinated squads
will be able to outwit the enemy! The enemy's superior forces, controlled by artificial
intelligence, will present a serious obstacle to victory.


Garage - The first place you get to as a fresh commander is your "Garage". It serves as the place to
purchase, equip, repair and sell vehicles and select the game modes you want to play. It has
the following interface elements:

Progression - unlocking new vehicles
You will probably have a few more vehicles unlocked when you start, but a player will start
with just a few options and has to pass a tutorial to learn the basics of the game
The primary progress currencies are Reputation and Credits. Reputation unlocks vehicles
and upgrades while credits are spent to actually purchase them
In Armored Warfare, vehicles are purchased through dealers, available in the "Dealers"
section of the garage. Unlike in other games, the progression is not very strictly defined and
players can often switch between lines. It’s worth noting that the most expensive (Tier 9 and
Tier 10 vehicles) are nor tied to specific lines at all, but, once having reached Tier 8, players
can select their future Tier 10 vehicle (of that specific dealer) freely, even if it’s of different
class than the Tier 8 one.

Crew and Commander
Vehicles in Armored Warfare are manned by crew members and commanders. The amount
of crew members can vary from as few as two to four, depending on the vehicle. The
Commander is a special crew member that progresses differently than the rest of the crew.
Unlike the regular crew members, the commander can move from tank to tank and has a
specific tree development system in place. You can choose from multiple commanders, each
with a different progression tree and different skills available. Some commanders are suited
for specific classes of vehicles (with their skills reflecting that), while other commanders are
more universal.

Tiers - advancing through the ages
In armored warfare each vehicle is categorized by class as well as by tier. Tiers represent an
overall power level and are used to match vehicles for its game modes. Tier 1 vehicles are
typically early post-war vehicles, Tiers 3 to 6-7 represent the Cold War era, Tier 8 consists of
typically used modern vehicles in use today, Tier 9 consists of the best upgrades currently
available and Tier 10 represents the near future with cutting edge technology like the T-14
Armata or the (currently developed) XM1A3 Abrams. The matchmaking will make sure you
will not be paired against vehicles that are 2 tiers higher (although this boundary is more
loose for PvE). By playing the game and using the game currencies you will be able to
advance to higher tiers and start getting used to more and more modern military technology.

How is the gameplay different on the modern battlefields:
Armored Warfare is all about the evolution of modern battlefield. It features a large number
of things that make it different from the clunky tanks of old. At the same time, modern
battlefield is also more complex and offers higher diversity.
For one, the modern vehicles are much faster and more agile. Armored Warfare offers
considerably faster gameplay compared to its competition along with more depth and more
player choices:
Engines aren’t just engines – diesels accelerate faster from the get go, while turbines
accelerate better when the vehicle is already driving forward.
Armor isn’t just a hunk of steel anymore – there are many choices of protective measures:
-     Standard steel or composite armor? (composite armor protects better versus HEAT
rounds, but not versus kinetic rounds)
Slat armor or not? (slat armor offers extra protection versus HEAT or missiles but is
-     ERA or not – after all, who would resist having a ton of explosives hanging on top of
your tank? Or perhaps a NERA kit instead?
-     APS, effective against guided missiles
-    Smoke grenade launcher or engine smoke generator, instantly concealing you from
the enemy

There are myriads of offensive choices to be made as well:
-     Type of ammunition – do you fire reliable kinetic rounds, highly destructive HEAT
rounds or even guided missiles?
-     Many various sub-types of ammunition (from incendiary over thermobaric missiles,
tandem HEAT to the unique and destructive PELE round)
-     Guided missiles offer an entirely new tactical gameplay element – as their name
suggests, you can steer them towards the target but in order to do that effectively,
you have to stay stationary.
Add to this the entire Retrofit customization system and the dozens, if not hundreds of skills
offered by commanders and you have a recipe for the ultimate customization offered by any
tank game, allowing you to configure your vehicle exactly for your playstyle.

Game modes to show:

The story driven co-op missions (PvE) are a good to show off as a start and show clearly
what Armored Warfare does differently since most players are well aware of the regular
competitive modes used widely throughout the genre. The missions are taken head on with
4 other tank commanders and on higher difficulties need well coordinated squads to bring
them to a positive end.
Global Operations is a unique mode to the genre and great to show off as well.
It takes place on a large scale battlefield, 15 vs 15 normally you won’t be able to respawn
but in Global Operations, getting destroyed is not the end! Respawn in one of three
designated areas and get back into the fight.
Play on the massive Global Operations battlefields! a smaller group with the team could take
strategic points that will help the team as a whole, without having to slug it out directly with
the enemy team commanders.
You can also capture special Wildcard objectives that give your team the ability to call in a
military asset from HQ, to tip the balance of the battle in your favor. These include bombing
runs, recon drones and more! Below you see a few examples of them on one of the Global
Operations maps.
