Girls and tanks: New tanks and characters available in World of Tanks

World of Tanks

05/14/2024 - The popular anime series Girls und Panzer returns to World of Tanks from May 16-31, bringing with it a host of new content including tanks, characters and customization elements.

The legendary anglerfish team of the Ōarai Girls' School is then joined by the teams of two schools where the art of sensha-dō is also upheld: the Black Forest Peak Girls' School and the Continuation Secondary School.The legendary anglerfish team of the Ōarai Girls' School is then joined by the teams of two schools where the art of sensha-dō is also upheld: the Black Forest Peak Girls' School and the Continuation Secondary School.

In addition to the Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. H Ankou, players will now also find two new premium vehicles inspired by girls and tanks: the Tiger II of the Schwarzwaldgipfel Girls' School and the BT-42 of the Fortsetzungs-Oberschule.

The Tiger II of the Schwarzwaldgipfel girls' school has truly earned its place in the arsenal of their Sensha-dō team. With its fearsome and devastating gun and massive armor, it is ideally suited to the Nishizumi family tactics that the Black Forest Peak Girls' School so masterfully implements: an approach focused on precise attacks and impenetrable defenses. The Tiger II was essential to the Black Forest Peak Girls' School's advancement in the 63rd National Schools' Sensha-dō Championship. Under the command of Erika Itsumi, it performed heroically until it was ultimately defeated in the final by the Ōarai Girls' School.

The continuation high school's compact BT-42 has just enough room for the three-person crew of her Sensha-dō team: commander Mika, gunner and loader Aki and driver Mikko. The BT-42, which performs at its best to the rousing melody of Säkkijärven Polkka on the Kantele, is ideally suited for close combat. At close range, it can put its large-caliber howitzer to ideal use. The BT-42's most glorious moment came during the Battle of Ōarai, when the Christie's chassis allowed it to move forward without tracks and heroically take out an entire platoon of M26 Pershings from the All-Stars University team.

Thanks to a custom voiceover by the original voice actresses, the characters of Girls and Panzer bring their spirited personalities to the battlefield. Appearing will be the entire Anglerfish team from Ōarai Girls' School (Miho Nishizumi, Saori Takebe, Hana Isuzu, Yukari Akiyama and Mako Reizei), Erika Itsumi from Black Forest Peak Girls' School and the Continuation High School team (Mika, Aki and Mikko). Players can also join the Sensha-dō team of their favorite leader, complete missions and then recruit their favorite character as a commander for their own vehicle.

There are also numerous 2D customization elements waiting for the commanders in the game, such as emblems, lettering and decors of the various schools and teams of Girls and Tanks, a special customizable style of the Ōarai Girls' School, two new 2D styles of the Black Forest Peak Girls' School and the Continuation High School, and a collection of decors with images of the leaders of all schools in chibi and pin-up style.

Commanders can also participate in special missions that will earn them various rewards from Girls and Tanks, most notably coveted rewards such as Miho, Mika and Erika as commanders. All players have to do is select the commander's order series they want to receive.

The content will be available in the game from May 16 to 31.

The new tanks are the Tiger II from the Black Forest Summit Girls' School and the BT-42 from the Continuation High School.
