7 Tanks Players Fear in Battle

These tanks are some of the most feared vehicles you can face in battle.

Type 5 Heavy

This Tier 10 Japanese behemoth is the literal embodiment of an unmovable object – except this time the object fires back and wipes you off the face of the earth.

In effect, the Type 5's frontal armor values are entirely impossible to penetrate with standard ammunition. Update 9.20 introduced two frontal weakspots that are 260-270mm thick without angling the vehicle. Considering the corridor meta, flanking opportunities are limited and close, frontal engagements are plentiful – unfortunately for you.

The Type 5 then boasts a terrifying 15cm howitzer with 1100 or 1400 alpha damage, depending on your shell choice (HE or Premium HE). Those kind of values can not only one-shot many unfortunate enemies (likely you, if it's on the other team), but also can provide exceptional splash damage values if you understand how HE works.
