Feel the power of a Tank Destroyer

We've already learned about light
and medium tanks
, so today Wargaming.net shows us how effective tank destroyers are. Watch the video to see common tactics of long range combat and support of your team. Nick Katselapov, producer of World of Tanks
, described these vehicles like this:
“Operating a Ferdinand or SU-152 is like safari hunting. Everything is under control as long as your targets stay at long range and nothing will stop you from picking off a tiger or panther. But as soon as the 'kitties' approach your positions there’s hardly a way to survive.”
I'm anxious to get back into the game now that I've learned how to effectively use all of these. Have you had a chance to try out the beta
for World of Tanks

But being a great tank commander alone isn't enough to win! In World of Tanks, it’s all about teamwork. Victory is achieved by combining your combat skills with those of the other members of your team, each playing their own role on the battlefield.
