Trade-In: Eligibility

The general rule is as follows: You can trade in any Tier VI–VIII Premium vehicle when buying a new Premium vehicle of the same tier or higher that is available in the Tech Tree. It’s only possible to trade in one vehicle at a time. When trading in, half of your old tank’s value in gold will be subtracted from the price of the new vehicle you’re buying.

Example: If you want to purchase a VIII Löwe (11,200) in exchange for a VI Dicker Max (2,800), you’ll only need an additional 9,800.

New Additions

Important: Active Premium tank discounts may affect the value of the vehicle you are attempting to trade in if that vehicle is eligible for the discount. Discounted vehicles will be marked accordingly in the trade-in window.

American Yoh Tanks Are Here!

Five brand-new American Yoh tanks are making their Tech Tree debut in World of Tanks, Commanders!

Several months ago, we announced a new line of American heavy tanks featuring the reserve track mechanic. This line generated a lot of interest, especially with regard to the tanks’ unusual appearance and gameplay. The  VIII M-IV-Y , the Premium representative of the new branch, was also made available in the Holiday Ops 2022 event.

With this unique new mechanic, it took a long time to refine the Yoh vehicles and balance their characteristics. Now, we’re ready to add this entire American heavy tank branch to the game on January 26, 2022. But before we take a closer look at the lineup, let’s start off with a brief historical background.

Yoh Tanks: An Outstanding Unreleased Project

In the 1950s, the American H.L. Yoh Company, named after its founder, American industrialist Harold L. Yoh, started developing tank concepts with unusual configurations. They inherited some of the classic features of the American tank building school, but each concept had rather non-standard shapes. One of the main features of these brand-new vehicles was a reserve track that could be used if the main one was destroyed.

We found these ideas very interesting, so we decided to accurately recreate these outstanding machines in our game. Although the Yoh tanks have never historically been embodied in metal, you can now experience the heat of battle in them, albeit virtually!

The Curious Ideas of Yoh – Part 1

Source: EU Portal

In the 1950s, a company called H.L. Yoh submitted several ideas for new tanks and vehicle improvements to the U.S. Army. Each of their projects featured unique shapes and innovative mechanics that seemed more or less feasible to implement. Collectively, these vehicles have been dubbed Yoh tanks. While they never reached the prototype phase or gained much attention from the U.S. Army, their unusual look and original features are well worth a closer inspection.

Let’s check out some of the ideas and proposals by the H.L. Yoh company that inspired the new branch of American heavy tanks in World of Tanks, even though not all of the ideas will find their way into the game.

Gun Shield and Turret Concepts

The new gun shield incorporated many desirable factors. The primary feature consisted of the weight being concentrated aft of the trunnion, helping to balance the gun. The shield was composed of a lightweight cast core to which the gun cradle was attached, permitting the gun to recoil. The sloped front provided excellent obliquity. The turret opening was completely sealed by the unique contour that maintained a minimum gap between the shield and turret.
