You start the game with ''very'' basic tank designs [[TheAllegedCar barely worthy of the name]] and proceed to work your way up the tech trees. The tech trees themselves consist of a mixture of vehicles that saw service in their respective armies and vehicles that only made it to the prototype stage or never made it off paper. [[note]]The vehicles that did see service often have upgrades available to them that were never adopted in real life, in some cases because they simply couldn't make it fit.[[/note]] All the vehicles featured have been extensively researched and their in-game characteristics are based on their real-world counterparts. Despite that, the controls are relatively simple, and it is most definitely not even anywhere close to being a hardcore sim. The range of tanks available stretches from the 1920s (with a single tank from ''[[WorldWarOne 1917]]''[[note]] The Renault FT, the first tank available in the French line [[/note]], and its [[UndergroundMonkey many derivatives]]) to the [[UsefulNotes/ColdWar 1960s and 1970s]][[note]]The later Swedish Tank Destroyers are 70's models[[/note]].

** The otherwise hyper-armored on all sides KV-5 has a big weak housing for a radioman, routinely referred to as "R2-D2" by fans. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOWg9sEJirE Said radioman's sad life]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUtJFvQeLFQ is also a recurring theme.]] On the upside, that radioman has bought so many farms, he now owns several small countries outright.

Added DiffLines:

*** Special mention goes to Strv 103B, a Tier X Swedish tank destroyer. Has an incredible DPM and the highest penetration available, but only 40 millimeters of frontal armor (read: none), a high silouette and a lacking sight range. Give this machine a spotter, and it's a terror to behold. A direct hit from an SPG is almost always fatal, though.

Added DiffLines:

** As of patch 9.19, Sisterhood of Steel and Brothers in Arms are now equivalent. You no longer need an all-female crew to achieve a skill bonus, as long as the male crew members have the Brothers in Arms perk.

** Wargaming has unknowingly offended players of Spainish-Mexican ancestry by being historically accurate with the Spähpanzer 1C of patch 9.9 (Abbreviation: Sp 1C. Germany used Roman Numerals in their tank abbreviations, which leads the tank's abbreviation to be rendered as SP I C).C in-game.
