Patch #2

Hey Tankers,
We have pushed out the latest patch. More details below!

Be sure to restart Steam so that the patch downloads.

Build v0.2.2 Change Log:
Main Changes
  • 1.59 Inch Vickers is now unlocked right at the start to give Mark V Female and Whippet access to Anti-Tank weapon
  • Whippet is now unlocked right at the start to offer players more variety of vehicles to choose from

To ease the learning curve, we have adjusted Mission 1, 2 and 3
  • Enemy Tanks will not be spawned on Easy difficulty for Mission 1 and 2
  • Enemy artillery strikes are less often on Easy difficulty for Mission 1 and 2
  • Enemy Tank at the start of Mission 3 is replaced with an AT gun on Easy difficulty

Quality of Life Improvement
  • Killing the crew of AT gun and machine gun will now be counted as a kill on the objective counter in Mission 3 and 4. (But do destroy the gun completely if you wish to earn some additional XP)
  • All flamethrowers default target type is set to both Infantry and Soft (Used to be just Infantry). Hint: Flamethrower can arc over the AT gun and kill the crew
  • Mark V ability to crush obstacles have been greatly improved. Weight of vehicle will now be factored into the rate of destruction of obstacles
  • Prompt to enter Garage in Main Menu is removed
  • To aid in finding the downed plane in mission 5, the plane debris are scattered in a larger radius around the crashed site. "Capture Pilot" has also been renamed to "Rescue Pilot"
  • Shortcut keys for Ability 1 ('Q'), Ability 2 ('E'), Cycle Ammo ('F') are now remappable under Option
  • Crew will now auto take up position in the vehicle at the start of battle
  • In Mission 6, on completion of all objectives except “Destroy Artillery”, enemy artillery will spawn instantly instead of needing to wait

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed mission 6 minimap showing accessible part of the map as inaccessible
  • Fix Light armor not working on Female Sponson on Mark V Female and Composite

Useful Tips:
  • Do use Smoke or Star shell from the signal module as they are cheap and recharge fast. Smoke provides cover from enemy fire and Star shell temporarily blind enemy infantry.
  • Ramming enemy Anti-Tank gun can be the quickest way to kill it. Pop smoke before closing it.

About This Game



Step into the shoes of a Tank Commander and experience what it is like to be in the Tank during the heat of the battle! Do you have what it takes to command your men and steel through blood and mud?!



Tanks were developed during World War 1 in response to the stalemate caused by trench warfare. Despite its slow speed, the armored crew cabin, firepower and ability to navigate through the rough terrain of No Man’s Land allowed the stalemate to be broken.



Staff your Tank Crew with men and women with the right specializations, skills and abilities. Command them to man various modules in the Tank or to perform heroic actions such as putting out a raging fire, repairing the broken engine or reviving a fallen Crew Member!



Get your hands (and legs) on the steering and drive your Tank into battle! Navigate various terrains and plow your way through barbed wires, trenches or poor enemy souls. Let nothing stop the steel beast!



Every battle is a treacherous one. Enemy soldiers, machine guns, anti-tank weapons, artilleries, mines, bombers and many others lay wait, all with the one goal of destroying you. Stay alert, keep your eyes peeled and complete your mission!



Understand the enemy, and equip the right weapon for the job. Choose between machine guns, anti-tank cannons, howitzer, flamethrowers, autocannons and many more to be effective in battle! Further personalize your tank with a wide range of liveries, emblems and wordings to make the Tank truly yours!
