When playing World of Tanks, it is important to know the main

role of your chosen tank, such as spotting light tanks and artillery vomiting. This knowledge comes from playing the various maps as well as using your tank correctly.
In medium tanks, it can be a little more difficult to understand as your role will vary from game to game. Your role may change several times in a single battle, sometimes requiring a change of strategy to bring victory to your team.
An important thing to consider before you hit the battlefield is the unique statistics of the tank you go to battle with. This often determines how you can be useful to your team.

The main points to look at are:



Detecting distance

Gun and ammo penetration values

Your armor will often be very light compared to heavy tanks; however, you must know how much you will be hit and not damaged. While powerful medium tanks protect against incoming fire, they can respond with heavy fire with weapons with high damage / minute (DPM) value.

Your speed determines how quickly you can get to critical points and how effective you can be when applying hit-and-run tactics. If you use a slow tank, you may be less effective in hit-and-run or frontline scouting.

Detection distance, which determines how far you can detect your enemies on behalf of your team, is also a consideration. Long detection range allows you to stay relatively safe while providing vital enemy location intelligence for your team's tank destroyers and KMS

When you go into battle, you first want to examine your team's roster. This helps you understand what your role will be in the team.

If your medium tank can move quickly, has a good view range, and is lacking a light tank, you should take the role of scout. This requires you to stay longer than the actual conflict and provide intelligence for the rest of the team by watching from afar. Your task is to indicate the enemy position so your team can deal the required damage.


If there are no heavy tanks in the team, the stronger armored medium tanks should have more stature at the forefront of the conflict along with the main forces. It is still recommended to avoid constant fire from the enemy; However, do not forget that here you will be in the "hitting power" of your team. To prevent your tank destroyers from taking too much damage, you will be on the frontline and support your warrior strength by doing your best.

In an ideal scenario, the team will have a good distribution of light and heavy tanks, and you will have the support role. In such cases, wolf pack strategies - moving in groups of two or more tanks - are recommended. Fighting other medium tanks or moving around the edges of the map with light tanks or tank destroyers are also good tactics. During the siege, you may need to stop firing while dealing with most of your enemy strength, or until your team gains the number advantage.


Remember; No matter what task you take on, you'll have the best DPM value in your team. So don't miss any opportunity to do damage. The most effective activity of a medium tank is to shoot the enemy from their tracks, sides or back. If your enemy is focused on a teammate, the damage you will inflict will make the enemy - although it may seem small - consider changing targets. If they direct their tower attack on you, hit the gas and escape to safety. If they keep hitting your ally, you can continue to deal damage.
