July Overview: Defiance

28 jun 17

Happiness is a state of defiance. We recognize the countries that fought for their independence, we celebrate the heroes who stood for a cause, and we honor the peoples who risked everything to change the tide of war.

Wargaming recognizes this defiance with the return of select Heroes from the U.S., France, and Great Britain. The all-new Frostbite Grizzly M4 Sherman has also arrived, and it's a Canadian hero battling for the Brits.

We're also thrilled about our partnership with Warner Bros. and Christopher Nolan's WWII action movie "Dunkirk." You can participate in exclusive "On the Road to Dunkirk" Ops, and get a pair of new Dunkirk-associated Premium tanks in the Store! Show your pride and independence with these patriotic vehicles!
