  • Free XP

  • XP Boosts
  • A Camo Voucher
  • First Aid Kits
  • Repair Kits

Complete the last stretch, and you’ll claim the Overlord Earn Op’s ultimate prize: the British Tier VIII Diamondback Mk. 1 Tank Destroyer!

Developed in 1943, the Diamondback Mk. 1 was designed as an assault vehicle that could decimate the enemy’s defenses. Today, it’s loaded and ready to take down enemies at your command with features like…


A Gun That Just Won’t Quit

A Tank Destroyer has one job: destroying tanks. Thanks to its high-grade rate of fire and smooth handling, the gun on the Diamondback gets the job done.

Thick, Sturdy Armor

You’ve got shots to set up and a strategy to prepare. The Diamondback’s excellent frontal armor will protect you while you get down to business.

A Wide Range of Fire

No turret? No problem! The arc on the Diamondback’s gun is wide enough for you to take on the enemy’s fire without having to rotate your hull.
