Are you a carebear? Do you wear winter attire year round? Of course you do! That’s why Obsidian Entertainment (OE) made the perfect tank – the Leopard 2AV ICE!

Garbad’s How should I equip my Tank in Armored Warfare guide

A nice submission by Garbard supplanting his previous article on how to outfit your vehicles in Armored Warfare. How should I equip my Tank: Damage Stacking, Aim Time Stacking, or Accuracy Stacking? Several months ago I wrote a guide about equipment choices. This guide has been one of the most viewed articles I have written for Armored Talk, especially among casual players. However, things have changed, and I felt like I wanted to expand on...

So here is his update:   Garbad’s Thoughts – 11/21/15 In this article, I will bounce around from topic to topic. I have several things...

Review Of The BMD-4 in Armored Warfare

Review of Armored Warfare’s OF-40

We have another Tank Academy article from BlazeZero for you. Enjoy! Hello again tankers! Today we get to see the Italian OF-40 from the Leopard MBT line. Many would think that this is simply a Leopard 1 with a different turret. You would actually be wrong. The OF-40 was a joint design between the two Italian companies OTO Melara and the car maker Fiat. They used some Leopard 1 parts making the OF-40, but most...

AMX 10P-90: premium Tier 5 Tank Destroyer in Armored Warfare 12

Garbad reviews some of the premiums in Armored Warfare’s EA5 stage

With the Armored Warfare portal recently showing off some of the premium vehicles in EA5, this submission by Garbad reviewing premium tanks is timely. A reminder on his rating system: Please note that I grade on a curve, and not every tank can get a high score. This doesn’t mean the tank isn’t fun, can’t do well, or you may not enjoy it. It just means that relatively, I found it lacking to its competition and peers....

M551 Sheridan light tank review in Armored Warfare

We have another Tank Academy article from BlazeZero for you. Enjoy! Tank Academy: M551 Sheridan Light Tank By BlazeZero Today we get to take a look at one of the most ridiculous light tanks to ever exist, the M551 Sheridan. When you think of light tanks you imagine something small, nimble, and with considerably less firepower than MBTs. These are lights after all and aren’t designed to stand and fight with heavier opponents. Yeah, that...
