How to Mount Equipment

Equipment is available in pairs in nine slots. These slots are grouped by type of improvement (the way they affect the tank): combat power, vitality, and specialization. Each type of improvement has three possible slots.

A newly purchased tank has all equipment slots locked. To mount an upgrade, the corresponding slot must be unlocked.

Unlocking equipment slots takes credits. Once paid for, they unlock instantly, and the cost to unlock them depends on the slot level and the vehicle Tier:

Tank Tier Level I slot Level II slot Level III slot
I 2,000 2,200 2,500
II 5,000 8,000 9,000
III 20,000 25,000 30,000
IV 40,000 50,000 60,000
V 80,000 90,000 100,000
VI 100,000 120,000 140,000
VII 150,000 170,000 190,000
VIII 200,000 225,000 250,000
IX 250,000 275,000 300,000
X 300,000 350,000 400,000

To unlock the equipment slot, you need to select it in the equipment window and tap Unlock (in the bottom right corner of the equipment window).

Equipment and Bonuses

Here are the bonuses that various equipment offers.

There are two types of equipment for every slot. You can choose only one.

Why is this? First, when you need to choose from two equally tempting options, you'll start carefully studying the characteristics and features of each particular tank. And secondly, this approach will prevent making your vehicle "imba": modules offering similar bonuses are usually located in the same slot, and you can’t mount them all at the same time.

Combat Power

This type of equipment affects the gun characteristics in various ways.

Level I Slot

This is the only slot with contents that can vary for different vehicles: in some cases you'll have Ventilation, in others—Rammer.

  1. Option 1: Improved Ventilation
    15975

    Ventilation is available only for "drummers" and vehicles with machine guns. For other vehicles, this slot offers the Rammer.

    +5% to all crew skills

    15975

    The Rammer is available for vehicles with conventional guns and also for open cabins. For other vehicles, this slot offers Ventilation.

    Enhanced Tracks automatically repair tracks to fully restore track HP (without using the Repair Kit). This upgrade does not speed up suspension repair.
    Unless the module is mounted, the hit and repaired track is highlighted in yellow. It will be operational, but with lower durability, and can be destroyed more easily.

    +30% to repair speed

Here you have to choose between viewing range and concealment, or speed and maneuverability, as well as between different bonuses to consumables' effects.

A tank competently "stacked" with equipment across all nine slots significantly improves its performance. Cumulatively, these characteristics add up to being much better than those of the same tank with the "old" equipment.

Remember: there is a wealth of combinations of new equipment (512 options!), and once you unlock the slot, you can switch equipment whenever you feel like it.
