NEW Cold War Tech Tree Vehicles: Czechoslovakian Post-War Tanks

September 9, 2022

Three new tanks with devastating guns arrive to elevate your Cold War battles. Read all about them!


The Eastern Alliance evolves on September 13th! Introducing a line of three medium tanks based on historical Czechoslovakian designs from the years immediately after World War II:

  • TVP VTU 88mm Post-War Eastern Alliance Medium Tank
  • Škoda T 50 ’49 Post-War Eastern Alliance Medium Tank
  • TVP T 50/51 ‘51 Post-War Eastern Alliance Medium Tank

The first vehicle in the line has a classic single-fire gun with extremely high penetration values. The following two vehicles gain access to the autoloader gun that Czechoslovakian tanks are known for. These autoloaders are perfect for ambushing an enemy vehicle and quickly inflicting a large amount of damage.

The best part: Because this is a brand-new Tech Tree line starting in the Post-War Era (Era 1), you can jump right into the first tank in the line (the TVP VTU 88mm). No Silver required to purchase it!

Learn more about each vehicle below. Then, continue to the end of the article for info on Challenges that will reward you for getting familiar with these new tanks!
