To celebrate the August 15 Independence Day of South Korea, aside from the gift, we’ve prepared a special set of Korean-themed bundles for you, including:
- T-80U ROK skin for the T-80U Tier 7 MBT
- Korean camouflage bundle with real-life camouflages and base paints
- K1A1 Military bundle with a real-life camouflage and base paints
Between August 13 and August 19, 2021, the following items will be available:
T-80U ROK Skin
The T-80U Main Battle Tank was the best mass-produced variant of the T-80 series. Back in the 1980s, it was specifically designed to establish Soviet superiority on Cold War battlefields. Featuring new Kontakt-5 set of Explosive Reactive Armor, it was possibly the most dangerous Soviet Main Battle Tank of the time. To read more about its history, please visit our dedicated article.
The T-80U ROK skin turns your progression MBT into the model used by South Korea. This Asian country acquired more over a score of these tanks in the 1990s as a partial payment for an old Soviet-era debt and has been using them ever since. You can read more about this skin in our dedicated article.
This skin is available in the T-80U ROK bundle, which contains:
- T-80U ROK skin for T-80U MBT
- 7 days of Premium Time
- 500 Gold
Please note that in order to use the skin, you need to own the T-80U Tier 7 progression MBT.
In this offer, we have two camouflages and two base paints for you in one bundle.
The Korean (Alternative) camouflage is a take on the standard Korean camouflage that we already have in the game, with slightly different colors and less blurry, brush-painted lines for those of you, who prefer a crisp, clean look. It’s still in use on various Korean MBTs. You can read more about it in our dedicated article.
The Korean Desert camouflage, on the other hand, was used by the South Korean units sent to Iraq. A small contingent of mostly doctors and engineers was deployed there after the conflict, using, amongst other things, modified Kia trucks. You can read more about it in our dedicated article.
And, last but not least, the base paints are also based on real-life appearances. The Korean Export base paint (a shade of a sand color) was used during the unveiling of the AS21 Redback prototype for the Australian military. The Korean Khaki base paint was also used during an expo – this time by Kia on its KLTV light truck prototype (this platform is the basis of the K-153C Raybolt we have in the game).
All four camouflages and base paints can be used on any vehicle that allows visual customization and in any environment.
K1A1 Military Bundle
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 is now available in the Military bundle, which contains:
- K1A1 Tier 7 Premium MBT
- Korean (Alternative) camouflage
- Korean Khaki base paint
- Korean Export base paint
You can learn more about the Korean (Alternative) camouflage in our dedicated article.
We hope that you will enjoy the offer and, as always:
See you on the battlefield!
