Meet the Brand-New Kampfpanzer 07 RH!

This unique Tier VIII German medium tank sits at the junction of medium and light vehicles. It boasts a great top speed of 65 km/h and incredible mobility, allowing it to reach crucial positions on the battlefield before other vehicles. Swift and fierce like a storm, this versatile warrior can accelerate instantly and rapidly change flanks more than once during the battle, easily getting behind unsuspecting enemies.

Its 9 cm gun features good stabilization, a rapid loading time, and a high rate of fire complemented by an incredibly fast aiming time. The Kampfpanzer 07 RH has excellent damage per minute (2,400 points) and is capable of firing effectively on the move.

However, it sacrifices frontal and turret armor for greater maneuverability, and its armor penetration and alpha damage are not so impressive. It’s easy prey for direct fire when caught out of position, so the Kampfpanzer 07 RH is best played between the first and second lines of attack where it can support allies as a mobile flanker. Adjusting to its gameplay won’t be easy, but if you can adapt to its incredible mobility and make full use of the gun’s potential, you’ll be a menace to your enemies!

One of the most notable features of the Kampfpanzer 07 RH is the oscillating turret that is featured on some popular French vehicles. This is the first-ever German tank in the game with a turret so unusual for its nation. The shape is very extravagant, so if you like vehicles of an extraordinary design, you’ll be delighted with this brand-new Premium predator!

Chapter I. Uncut Gem: General Overview

Your furious hunt for the menacing Kampfpanzer 07 RH will last 10 days. To grab this speedy medium, you need to complete 10 consecutive Stages by fulfilling missions for mastery or for commitment, all in Random Battles. You can track your progress via a special banner in the Garage without opening a separate Challenge tab.

  • Missions for commitment must be performed using Tier VI–X vehicles. Remember: Your result will only count if you finish in the top 10 on your team at the end of the battle, no matter whether your team wins or loses.
  • Missions for mastery are more complex, but fulfilling them will save you time. You can only complete these tasks using Tier IX–X vehicles.

Both sets of tasks can be fulfilled simultaneously (given that all conditions are met), so it doesn’t matter exactly how you end up progressing to the next Stage. The mission that is completed first will count towards your progress for the next task on either path: commitment or mastery.

    1. for me no, 200 alpha damage is not worth it. you will die of old age till you get some damage shooting it. at tier 8 minimum should be 320

      1. The DPM is insane. You can literally camp in the bush the entire battle and then get like damage in late game in 1 minute. It’s actually pretty ridiculous.

        1. yea, if you get on big open maps, but lets see how that dpm works for you on city maps or smaller/corridor maps. i don’t like low alpha guns, i have patriot, and i really hate it

    2. Grinding for like 50 hours at 500 exp per battle average is never worth it.
      Just work for a few hours and buy it instead if you really want it.
      And that’s if you actually want it.

  1. Looks balanced and thus not worth the grind. It should have had 240 alpha and a slight nerf to speed so it won’t rush to its death so quickly (and not add to the speed meta where more and more meds are 65 Km/h).

  2. taking a few years off your life expectancy trying to marathon this tank out for free, comes with a huge caveat.

    CAVEAT EMPTOR.

  3. It would be nice for them to go back to holding events that weren’t a thinly veiled way to trick you into paying them.

  4. Ah, the good old days when the 2d/3d style was part of the stage 10 reward, in stead of a separate grind on top of the marathon…

    Also, check out that 2016 shell velocity…

  5. I somewhat like this tank, because it is a different playstile to the mayority of the tanks. Alpha is low, but it has a high fire rate.
    I first thought about buying it with 30% discount, but on the other hand it would surely has an insane price of 60,-€ plus because of this crap like the directives etc.
    So I will likely pass and wait until it appears in a Christmas sale or the Black Market 😉
