As long as we catch any team or key components, we are able to penetrate the armor of the enemy as often as we want. The enemy is still not burst!

, The reason is that you do not have one, but several tanks at gaijins battles that you are leading the field in sequence. And whenever it has caught you. In World of Tanks after the last blast is forcibly closing. Therefore, the battles in War Thunder usually last longer and because you do not know how many vehicles the enemy still has, is to conquer the safe way to victory.

In World of Tanks all hits that pass causing even damage to the Life Points. They're gone, the armor is gone.

Furthermore, World of Tanks works much easier than War Thunder. You just shoots at the enemy and when you penetrate the armor life points will be deducted until the tank bursts. By contrast, in War Thunder you have not kicked the bucket not gain life and as long as your crew, the fuel ignites or ammunition goes up, your vehicle can keep fighting indefinitely.

War Thunder offers all the World War tanks, but only three nations.

These beautiful tank but there are also all in World of Tanks, where Wargamings Panzerhatz still can play more nations such as France, Britain, China and Japan, and you as the weapon carrier E-100 offers bizarre prototypes and Fantasy tanks.

For this, the battles at gaijins tank game take a long time and you can not plan well your tactics and strategies, because in each battle can emerge aircraft and wegbomben your tanks from the air.
