The Fierce Panzer 58



Rapid-firing and accurate, dynamic and maneuverable, also good-looking and quite profitable—it’s the new Premium Panzer 58. The excellent characteristics are complemented by the Mutz legendary camouflage—the image of a ferocious bear is spread across the turret and hull sides. The camouflage changes the tank's name in battle to Panzer 58 Mutz and does not require replenishment. Intimidate your opponents and tear enemy vehicles to pieces!

Bundles including the Panzer 58 with or without full equipment, as well as a separate bundle featuring the Mutz legendary camouflage, will be available in the in-game Store till December 21. Become one of the first lucky owners of the Panzer 58!

More about the Panzer 58

In battle, the Panzer 58 most resembles its researchable German counterparts—the Tier IX and X Leopards. Despite being just as weakly armored, it has excellent maneuverability, decent speed, and an efficient gun.




In fact, the armor of the Panzer 58 is not as impressive as it may seem judging by its characteristics. You'll find a small area at the front of the hull that is 120 mm thick, but the remaining armor is thinner, which makes it easy to penetrate for most opponents.

The turret has more reliable protection. First of all, the thick 120 mm armor plate at its front is larger. Secondly, a large part of the turret is covered by the gun mantlet. The enemy will find its weak spots in a close quarters engagement, but the turret of the Panzer 58 will be able to block a number of enemy shells at medium and long distances.



Thanks to its powerful engine and average weight, the Panzer 58 quickly accelerates to 40 km/h, which gradually reaches the maximum of 50 km/h on level ground. Rest assured: on this Premium tank, you will always be able to take a decisive position or rush to your allies' side in time to help them.

The maneuverability of the Panzer 58 deserves special mention: this tank makes turns within a small radius and with no noticeable loss in speed. That means you can easily spin a clumsy tank destroyer around or slip between obstacles and enemy vehicles like a slalom champion!



The rapid-firing gun of the Panzer 58 devours enemy vehicles' HP points like a locust eats crops: the potential damage per minute for an armor-piercing shell exceeds 2,100 hit points! And this is before provisions and equipment are added.

You'll have everything you need to turn potential damage into enemy tears, credits, and beautiful statistics: the 212 mm of penetration capability will be enough to hit the sides or reach vulnerable spots in the frontal area of most targets. If the enemy stays impenetrable, but you still want to "bite" them, the APCR shells with 259 mm of penetration power are just what you need.



The gun of the Panzer 58 "bows down" 10 degrees, which means it can deal damage with an additional advantage. Hide the tank's hull behind terrain irregularities, leave only the turret exposed to take the blow, and escape safely after punching some holes in enemy armor!

Crush them all on the new Panzer 58!

Update 5.6



On December 5, you will be able to start hunting for avatars, feel like a participant of Operation Overlord when playing on the Normandy map, adorn your vehicles with new warpaints, and install boosters during the pre-battle countdown.

Main Changes and Improvements

Avatars were introduced into the game:
Avatars are a fun new feature that will allow you to show off your personality and accomplishments in the game. Read more about them in the special article "Choose your avatar in Update 5.6!".
  • They will be kept in the new Avatars tab in the Storage, which is where you can install them.
  • There are temporary and permanent avatars.
  • With the release of Update 5.6, temporary avatars will start to drop from bonus containers.
  • An avatar will be displayed:
    • In the Garage instead of the Record button. Upon clicking the avatar icon, players will be taken to the Profile screen.
    • In the player's profile (formerly the Record screen).
    • On the battle loading screen.
    • On the team battle results screen.
    • In the team list in battle.
    • In battle, next to the nickname of the ally that the player spectates after being destroyed.
    • In battle, next to the nickname of the enemy that destroyed the player's vehicle.

The Normandy map was added: the French coast in the midst of Operation Overlord. This map is available in Encounter battles and Supremacy mode for vehicles of Tier V and above.
December rating battles will start on December 5. As always, players of the Platinum League will be able to enjoy some exclusive advantages.
Now, it will take some time before new players are able to train crew skills:
  • The Crew button and the tutorial tooltips for crew skill training will be activated in the Garage after receiving vehicles of Tier VI and above.
  • At the same time, the skills themselves will be trained in the background—starting from the leftmost skill, until it reaches the maximum level. Players will be able to select another skill for training when a corresponding screen appears, provided that there are vehicles of Tier VI and above in their Garage.
  • Now, all vehicles up to Tier V inclusive will always come with 100% crew mastery.
  • The first training in Regimental School to the level of 75% is now free. Subsequently, a normal fee will be charged.

New warpaints were introduced, while some old ones were removed from sale:
  • After the release of Update 5.6, the Fearless Lion, Sharp Spurs, Fierce Beak, Wise Raven, Glorious Eagle, Pumpkin Mayhem, Spooky Web, Unexpectable, Steppe Snowstorm, and Effective Concealment camouflage will not be available for purchase.
  • New warpaints:
    • The Exceptional Fighter legendary camouflage for the T-44. Cost: 1,450 gold.
    • The Tectonic rare camouflage dedicated to WG Fest 2018. Cost: 65–1,200 gold depending on the vehicle tier
    • The Cold-blooded rare camouflage. Cost: 65–1,200 gold depending on the vehicle tier.
    • The Frozen Flame rare camouflage. Cost: 65–1,200 gold depending on the vehicle tier.
    • The Glacial Armor rare camouflage. Cost: 65–1,200 gold depending on the vehicle tier.
    • The Nine Lives common camouflage. Does not change the vehicle name in battle. Cost: 50–600,000 credits depending on the vehicle tier.

  • The following camouflages will be available for purchase again:
    • The "You Rock!" rare camouflage for the FV201 (A45). Cost: 1,070 gold.
    • The Pixel Wave rare camouflage for the WZ-111. Cost: 620 gold.
    • The Digital Trace rare camouflage for the Type 59. Cost: 620 gold.

Boosters can now be activated on the battle loading screen:
  • It is now possible to install boosters during the pre-battle countdown. For that purpose, we added an interactive panel to the battle loading screen, where installed and not installed boosters are displayed.
  • After the battle, only boosters activated by the player in the previous battle will be activated in the Garage.

The characteristics of some vehicles were changed:
  • The economy of low-tier vehicles was changed. Tier I tanks are now repaired for free. The cost of repairing Tier II–IV vehicles was significantly reduced.
  • Tankenstein:
    • The 130 mm B-13-S2 gun's mantlet armor was enhanced from 50 to 130 mm.
  • Panther mit 8,8 cm L/71:
    • Lower glacis plate armor was reinforced from 50 to 60 mm.
    • Hull side armor was enhanced from 50 and 40 mm to 60 mm.

  • ISU-130 , 130 mm S-26 gun:
    • Dispersion at 100 m was decreased from 0.345 to 0.326 m.
    • Aiming time was changed from 4.9 to 4.2 s.
    • Dispersion on gun traverse was decreased.
Bug Fixes and Improvements

Other improvements:
  • The German Tier X Maus can now be researched after the Tier IX Mäuschen only. Players can no longer research the Maus after the VK 45.02 (P) Ausf. B.
  • A second cluster was launched for the CIS region, which will improve the server’s ability to handle more online players. The online players counter is now divided into two parts. A player from the 1st cluster can invite a player from the 2nd cluster to join a platoon. While doing so, neither of them will have to enter the game again.
  • After the update’s release, all Twister season items will be removed. Players will receive 30,000 credits as compensation for one Fan Banner, and 100 credits as compensation for one Support Point. Twister Coins will not be compensated.
  • In the side menu, the Hall of Fame button that navigates to the list of top clans in the Hall of Fame on the portal will take the place of the Twister Season 2018 button. This button was also returned to the screen with the list of tournaments.
  • The maximum rating earned in the current season (but excluding the maximum rating earned during calibrations) is now displayed in the Rating tab in the player's profile.
