Strike enemy tanks with certainty!

Any enemy heavy tank can be knocked out, stopped, or set aflame by our tank and anti-tank artillery. To be certain, let the tank approach as closely as possible.

The side of tanks is the most vulnerable to our artillery. If the shell strikes the fuel tank area, the tank will be set aflame.

Choose a vulnerable spot and aim your gun carefully. Make full use of your gun's rate of fire.

Aim to strike the enemy tank at normal (90 degrees). Don't lose heart if the hit is unsuccessful, keep firing until the enemy tank is completely destroyed. Believe in the power of your weapon. Observe your target carefully.
