You get to blow stuff up with weapons that have a realistic flight path behavior. What more do you want ?

There is an 'easy mode', as a commander you point and designate targets for your gunner to shoot at.

Okay, I decied to write a short review on this game.
Currently the game is only 1,24 Euro, and after a few days the game goes back to its original 5 E.
I'm writing this down because the price is definitely a big plus. As of the game itself, you will probably like it if you're into tanks and/or simulators. I am. Overall, I am quite pleased with the game. However, this is heavily influenced by its price. For 1,2 Euro, it's a great deal. For 5 Euro, I'm not really sure. You decide.

Pros:
+Terrain can be deformed (craters after explosions, you can dig tank trenches [UBER COOL] etc)
+Ability to demolish buildings is interesting, reminds me of Frostbite :D
+Spectator mode allows you to see where exactly did the shells hit the tank, which is both interesting and useful.
+I like the thermal/nightvision scope :3
+Rather easy to learn
+Ability to issue orders to other squads/tanks (though clunky)
+DAT PRICE

Cons:
-Uninteresting mission design (go over there, kill a tank on the way, you win)
-Only three (playable) tanks
-No tank interior, only HUD
-Bad functionality.. (the game menu and the game itself are separate programs, there are some issues with settings etc)
-Does not support Steam Overlay (that is to be expected I guess)
-MULTIPLAYER NOT WORKING!! (if anyone got it to work, PM me please)
-Not too interesting, yet definitely original setting
-I feel as if the controls are a bit clunky... Maybe you get used to it as time passes.
-Physics seem broken if you happen to glitch it
-Not too many missions (you can download some from the internet)
-Translation from Russian is funny - why is there "Made in USSR" written on the speedometer? Also, the azbuka abbreviations to English is weird. Manual covers the explanations though.


Overall, the game feels like a low-budget title of some minor Russian developer, but it can be clearly seen they did their best.
I'm not sure whether I can call this game a real "simulator". It's more of a really realistic tank game (which is maybe even better for me, since you learn the ropes faster, yet it keeps the satisfaction from realistic experience).
So, yeah. You decide. I don't regret getting this.

this is a decent sim for the price you cant lose at first you have to dumb down ai or you get blown up fast. grafix arent the best but not horrible either. there arent enough tank sims out and this is at least a good step in the right direction

Just dont even bother playing this game. Over half of the controls don't work and even when you do get them to it's very glitchy.

This is a low budget game. Even if you get it for 1 € dont buy it because youre just wasting your time by playing it.

Works fine for me (Windows 7) and yup, it's a REAL tank simulator! So if you're going to play this game then first you really should read the manual carefully (you can find it under the LINKS column in LIBRARY) and play two tutorial missions (which only cotains basic guides to drive and operate the turret, for advanced stuff you will have to read the manual) then practice with a mission to figure out how things work. Of course it will take time but if you can get used to it you'll find that it's actually a good game! However, please keep in mind that this game is old (a decade ago) and as I said it's a REAL tank simulator, so if you are interested in tanks but also a fan of fancy graphics or fast paced action or... both, try World of Tanks or something else!

Do you like tanks and willing spend time learned about them? Do you want to experience driving Russian tanks?
Buy this game

Do you prefer simple fps like Call of Duty or Battlefield? Do you enjoy shiny new graphics and pretty gimmicks?
Don’t buy it.

Seriously, this game is not for amateurs. Your shells will not magically land right on the center of your cross hair. You will have to change gear while driving. You will have to learn how to use your sights. You will have to restart the entire mission if you drive too fast and broke your tracks.
