There’s something special for you under the tree: a new Japanese tank for your collection!
‘Tis the season of giving, and nothing says Happy Holidays to us quite like giving tankers something shiny, memorable, and new for their tank collections.
Starting on Tuesday, December 22nd, you’ll find a gift waiting for you in game after the first multiplayer match you play: the Japanese Tier III Type 98 Ke-Ni Otsu Light Tank!
Only one prototype of the Type 98 Ke-Ni Otsu tank was ever built, and that was in 1939. This year, we’re bringing our in-game version of this vehicle to tank commanders of all levels as a free gift!
