Russian tanks. From my experience, they were always easy to learn and were pretty balanced when it came to armaments and armor but it’s been a while since the last time I’ve played them. Heavy tanks with sloped armor are my favorite as they usually have great survivability and can bounce off a couple of projectiles if you get lucky enough. Anyways, let’s start:

Tier 1​

The best tank: T-70
I remember having fun with this tank, mostly because I got shot in the front multiple times and was rarely punished for it(the armor in the front is surprisingly sturdy). The main cannon(45mm) has a high damage/penetration output and should not be ignored by other players. Keep in mind that this tank is pretty small and hard to shoot from afar!

The second-best tank: BA-11
Ba-11 is a light tank that can reach high speeds on the road and off the road(around 70 KM/H). It’s also equipped with the same cannon as the T-70, although the armor is a bit wack, which means that it’s recommended to play with your teammates, to maximize your chances of survival. Take cover often, stick to your buddies and you’ll be home before you know it!

    I just took her to a local shop nearby. She can't handle much in terms of stimulation, so I have to keep it easy for her.
