Rare Tank Spotlight: "Hammer" & Kanonenjagdpanzer

With all this talk about the Tiger "Hammer," new emblems, medals, Ops, and PvE campaign , one could say it's... HAMMER TIME!

If you haven't already battled with the Tiger I , then what gives? The Tiger is one of the most formidable tier VII heavy tanks in the game, and a true icon outside of it. The "Hammer" variant comes dressed in unique all-season camouflage.

The "Hammer" is a sniper at heart; best suited for secondary lines of attack. If the enemy focuses on front line brawlers, the "Hammer" can rip into them with one mighty gun, the 88mm L/71, which can eat enemy HP at an impressive rate. Just for kicks, the "Hammer" also has a Crew trained in the " Deadeye " Perk, making it that much more effective in hindering enemies.

Now for the juicy stuff -- the Kanonenjagdpanzer (lit. "tank destroyer cannon") is here, and you would do well to learn its name. Though it's built on the chassis of the Ru 251 , it's the Kanonen's gun that's the star. The TD's wide horizontal gun arc and light tank-like mobility make it easy to race to vantage points, settle, or relocate in a pinch.

Grab the "Mega" bundle and you'll get two of the most anticipated German vehicles, at a savings of over 15%!

Deadeye: Increases chance to cause critical damage to enemy vehicle modules and crew by 3%. It is effective only with AP, APCR, and HEAT shells.
