Earn Op: Defender of the "Fatherland"

17 feb

They're big, they're bad, and every Garage should own one. We're talking about powerful, in-your-face heavy tanks! They're the backbone of your team, the brawlers of the group, and they're not afraid to mix it up at close-quarters.

In celebration of Russia's "Defender of the Fatherland Day," we're ecstatic to announce a challenging new epic event with the Soviet "Fatherland" IS-3A as your ultimate reward, and plenty of extras to reap!

If you've ever faced the IS-3, IS-6 or 110 head-on, then you know about the perks of sloped armor. The "Fatherland" IS-3A is no different; catch these burly beasts from the wrong angle, and you'll find your rounds deflecting right off. "Side-scraping" is a viable heavy tank tactic, but with the "Fatherland's" piked nose, you're better off facing the enemy and letting trigonometry do the rest.

The "Fatherland" isn't just a defensive stopper; it can effectively take off chunks of HP with a powerful 122mm cannon, common on Soviet and Chinese tanks. Unlike the aforementioned heavy tanks, however, they don't come in custom all-terrain crimson decals!

Keep a steady eye on your target and fire at will!
