Celebrate the announcement of the Spirithaven season with two powerful Asian Premium MBTs we are offering today:
- K1A1 Tier 7 Premium MBT (available via Loot Crates)
- Type 90 Tier 7 Premium MBT
As well as several popular camouflages. Between January 30 and February 6, 2020, the following items will be available along with 50% bonus to Crew Experience income:
The K1A1 is an upgraded version of the older South-Korean K1 MBT. It’s a very distant relative of the Abrams MBT with the main difference being the presence of a hydro-pneumatic suspension, allowing the vehicle to tilt itself forward, backward and to the sides.
In Armored Warfare, the K1A1 is a Tier 7 Premium MBT. The combination of a 120mm gun, good mobility and solid armor (all of them roughly the same as the M1A1 has) as well as the ability to mark enemy targets for increased damage make it powerful opponent even in its basic form with additional upgrades readily available.
The K1A1 Tier 7 Premium MBT is available in our Web Shop via Loot Crates. Collect 100 blueprint pieces from these crates to obtain the vehicle.
The Type 90 is the current service main battle tank of the Japanese Self-Defense Force. On the outside, it vaguely resembled the German Leopard 2, but inside, the vehicle’s completely different. It was adequately armed and armored for the time it was developed in, but what made it really stand out were its cutting-edge Japanese electronics and its hydraulic suspension, allowing the tank to tilt itself forward or backward, enhancing its gun elevation and depression beyond what the turret would normally allow. This trait was considered to be an important for Japan, as much of its landmass is covered by mountainous areas. You can read more about it in our dedicated article.
In Armored Warfare, the Type 90 is a Tier 7 Premium Main Battle Tank. Gameplay-wise, it resembles the Leopard 2 and Abrams version of the same Tier. The difference between the Leopard and the Type 90 MBT lie in the presence of an automatic loading mechanism – otherwise, the firepower and protection levels is roughly the same with the Japanese tank having a little less armor, compensated by more module hitpoints. Overall, it is not the best-protected MBT on the battlefield, requiring careful long-range gameplay. However, the advanced electronics installed in this tank as well as its hydraulic suspension allow it to aim faster than all its class and Tier counterparts.
Additionally, we are returning the following camouflage bundles for you:
The Polish Experimental Camouflage is a digital camouflage pattern that appeared on several Polish prototypes during the 2016 MSPO expo in Kielce.
The three Canadian camouflages are based on real life patterns. You can read more about them in our dedicated article.
Three German camouflages are also available. The first two both represent the standard post-1985 NATO pattern used by the Bundeswehr – one of them is a classic brush paintjob while the other one is spray-painted. Since both camouflages are essentially similar, they are offered together for the price of one standard camouflage. Additionally, please note that the camouflages are visually similar to the previously introduced French ones since both France and West Germany were using the same NATO pattern.
The second pattern is a summer camouflage from the late 1970s, as it appeared on the earliest German Leopard 2 service tanks. If you desire to drive a correctly painted historical vehicle, the Leopard 2 MBT is the perfect candidate for this paintjob.
Please note that each of these camouflages can be installed on any vehicle that has the camouflage customization feature available (any vehicle with the exception of vehicles with permanent skins) and that each of these camouflages can be used in all three environments.
We hope that you will enjoy the offer and, as always:
See you on the battlefield!
