Did You Know…Personal Campaign Descriptions?

Did you know that the personal campaign missions (the ones for the StuG IV, T28 HTC, T55A, and Obj. 260) all have unique descriptions and hints? I saw a little question mark icon next to the names one day, and decided to hover on it to learn more. Interestingly, it was not a tooltip discussing the campaign missions in general, but a unique message for each of the missions. Sadly, the second series of campaigns (the ones for Excalibur, Chimera, and Obj. 279e) do not seem to have these descriptions. I only checked a couple though, so maybe a few do still have the messages. From what I can tell, they also seem to be the same from tank to tank. HT-15 has only one description for every version of the mission, and so do all the rest (at least as far as I checked). Since it’s not nearly as interesting to simply tell you about the descriptions, I’ll compile them here for your convenient reading pleasure.

LT-1: For Victory!
At lower tiers, some light tanks have almost as much firepower as heavier vehicles.

Still, try to avoid face-to-face combat. Instead, try to hit enemies in the side or rear. Observe where the enemy vehicle’s gun is pointing and approach from the other side.

LT-2: Reconnaissance
One of the main objectives of light tanks is to spot enemy vehicles.

But to spot a few enemy vehicles and get destroyed in the process would be a waste of your valuable tank. A good scout can spot enemies while successfully staying alive.

LT-3: The Pursuit
Your light tank has enough speed to quickly cross the map and provide support to your allies where your help is needed.

Always try to flank the enemy and hit them from the rear, where the armor is weakest. Do not linger in one spot. If you change positions frequently, the enemy will have a hard time hitting your vehicle. Remember that light tanks have the same chance of being detected while on the move as when they are stationary.

LT-4: A Forced Halt
Destroy a track of an enemy vehicle, thus immobilizing it and exposing it to the fire of your teammates’ more powerful guns. When you destroy a track of an enemy vehicle you temporarily immobilize it. This will help you and your allies to take better aim.

To destroy a track and immobilize effectively, target the drive wheel at the front or rear of the suspension. Remember that even if your gun is incapable of penetrating the armor of an enemy vehicle, it can always destroy the track. HE shells are best suited to this purpose. You will receive more experience if your allies cause damage to enemy vehicles immobilized by you.

LT-5: The Forward Observer
At the higher tiers, light tanks are very vulnerable to enemy fire. Do what light tanks are made to do: spot enemy vehicles.

Once you have spotted an enemy, keep it under observation long enough for your teammates to take aim and fire. Do not forget to draw the attention of your allies to the spotted vehicle by selecting “Requesting fire at…” from the Command Menu.

LT-6: Battle Support
Damage caused with your assistance is one of the most important statistics for light tanks. If this statistic is high, that means you were an asset to your team in battle.

The longer your view range, the better. Try to spot enemy vehicles, destroy their tracks, and immobilize them while staying safe at a distance. Equipment like Coated Optics and its analogues can help you spot the enemy from a safe distance.

LT-7: The SPG Hunter
Artillery is a priority target for light tanks. Destroying enemy SPGs will greatly increase your team’s chance of victory.

Taking out enemy artillery is not easy. Wait until your teammates have gotten the enemy’s attention, and then rush to the enemy SPGs. When you engage them, try not to cross in front of their guns. Instead, hit them from the sides and rear.

LT-8: Get Out of Our Base!
In the heat of battle, it is easy to forget about the defense of your own or the neutral base. Such imprudence may allow the enemy to gain the upper hand and seize the objective rapidly. Remember, your tank has enough speed to break contact and retreat to defend the base and fend off the invaders with precise shots or a daring ramming attack, thus saving your team from an imminent defeat.

If you are not 100% positive that your shells will penetrate the invader’s armor, load a High-Explosive shell instead. HE shells have a greater probability of causing damage to the enemy vehicle. Remember, all it takes is 1 HP of damage to the enemy vehicle or a damaged module to reset the capture points of your base. When you are attempting to capture a base, try to avoid enemy fire as much as possible.

LT-9: Hawk-Eyed
Light tanks are the eyes of their team. They help to spot enemy vehicles and keep them visible during the battle.

Upgrading your turret may improve your view range. This will help you to spot enemy vehicles long before they get close.

LT-10: The Best Result
The more effective you are in battle, the more experience you will earn. Show them what a light tank is capable of!

A good scout knows when to be cautious and when to be aggressive. Stay alert to the flow of battle.

LT-11: A Fair Fight
The higher the tier of your light tank, the more firepower you get, in addition to your speed, view range, and stealth.

High-tier light tanks can carry significant firepower. On the one hand, your gun may be inferior to the gun on a heavy tank, but on the other hand, your gun will probably penetrate a heavy tank’s rear armor quite nicely.

LT-12: The Ghost
Good concealment increases your chances of survival in battle. Light tanks have great concealment abilities, thanks to their relatively low silhouettes.

Once the enemy spots you, you will have to stay constantly on the move. But if you have not yet been spotted, find a position in a bush where you can stay concealed while lighting up the enemy. Equip your tank for stealth beforehand.

LT-13: The Key to Victory
With several light tanks in your Garage, rely on the one that will be able to survive for as long as possible. It is the endgame that unleashes the potential of a light tank: both teams switch to more careful gameplay, and each spotted enemy vehicle ends up in the crosshairs of your remaining allies.

Combine both active and passive spotting, avoid firing for as long as possible. A light tank that survives to the end of a battle is an advantage for its allies, and a disadvantage for the enemy team.

LT-14: The Battle Watch
If you have voice chat, you have the option to create a Dynamic Platoon right in a battle, and ask your allies to assist on the selected lane of attack.

All your allies believe in victory. The longer you survive, engage in combat, and spot enemies, the greater your contribution to the victory of the team.

LT-15: The Aggressive Recon Specialist
It’s time to show the enemy what a real light tank can do!

You are not a bull in a china shop. There is no need to break through right away. Be patient, choose your moment, and appear where the enemy is not expecting you. Your advantages are your speed, maneuverability, and view range–use them wisely. Do not forget that your vehicle also has a gun.

MT-1: First Steps
At lower tiers, most medium tanks can take on any other type of vehicle.

Hit the enemy at any opportunity, but try to avoid their fire as well.

MT-2: Good Hit!
Every successful shot brings your team one step closer to victory. However, it is not always easy to land a solid hit on an enemy vehicle.

The penetration chance marker on your reticle shows the chance of penetrating the enemy vehicle at a particular point. A red marker indicates no chance of penetration, a yellow marker indicates a low chance of penetration, a green marker indicates a high chance of penetration. Try to aim at the sides or the rear of enemy vehicles. Look for their weak spots.

MT-3: The Spearhead
Medium tanks are maneuverable vehicles with impressive guns.

Move aggressively to get behind the enemy lines and make a commotion there, putting the opposing team at a disadvantage.

MT-4: Stay Still, Would You?
Destroying an enemy’s tracks and immobilizing them can leave them vulnerable to more shots from you or your allies.

Aim for the drive wheels, the sprocketed wheels at the front or rear of the suspension. Once immobilized, an enemy tank is an easy target. Do not forget to draw the attention of your allies to the target vehicle by selecting “Requesting fire at..” from the Command Menu.

MT-5: Counter-Reconnaissance
One of the objectives of medium tanks is to destroy light tanks.

Do not let enemy light tanks achieve their main objective! Prevent them from spotting and immobilizing the vehicles of your teammates.

MT-6: Rapid Fire
Medium tanks are flexible and able to achieve a variety of objectives on the battlefield.

Your tank combines mobility and firepower: use them both. You can help your teammates on one flank, then retreat to the base to protect the SPGs, and then suddenly strike the enemy from the rear–all in one battle.

MT-7: A Surprise Blow
Enemy SPGs are high-priority targets for you. Neutralize them to get your team one step closer to victory.

Enemy artillery can cause heavy damage to your teammates. Break through a flank, rush to the enemy base, and neutralize their SPGs.

MT-8: Confrontation
Destroy same-tier enemy vehicles or vehicles of a higher tier to significantly contribute to the victory of your team.

Focus on the vehicles of your tier or higher. A fight against strong opponents will help you sharpen your skill with medium tanks, as well as receive more valuable rewards after battles.

MT-9: A Worthy Opponent
Seeking and destroying enemy heavy tanks is a hard task to accomplish but very beneficial to the team’s cause.

Outflank enemy vehicles, shoot them while concealed, target their weak spots to pick them apart–whatever it takes. Remember that heavy tanks are slower than you, and their turrets have low traverse speeds.

MT-10: A Versatile Warrior
A medium tank can perform well on any type of map and against any type of enemy vehicle. Study the features of your own vehicles to understand how to emerge victorious in any situation.

Your vehicle is maneuverable. Try exploiting this advantage to outflank enemy vehicles and attack them from the rear or sides. Vehicles that have weak armor can be destroyed by ramming attacks.

MT-11: Ram Them!
Some situations call for unconventional tactics.

The higher the speed and the greater your vehicle’s weight, the more damage you will cause by ramming an enemy vehicle.

MT-12: The Incinerator
Setting an enemy vehicle on fire is one of the most efficient ways to destroy it.

Penetrating hits that strike the engine or fuel tanks have a chance of causing a fire. Study diagrams of vehicles to learn where these crucial modules are located.

MT-13: Aggressive Actions
You receive experience for all effective actions. Hiding somewhere near the map border is hardly effective–try to be as close to the action as possible and cover your allies instead.

As soon as you destroy an enemy, move on to the next target. Your teammates most likely need your help somewhere else.

MT-14: Team Play
In battle, you must rely on your own skills as well as those of your Platoon members and allies. If all members of your team fight as one, victory is guaranteed!

Select one target at a time and focus your fire to rapidly crack the toughest defense. Do not forget to draw the attention of your allies to the spotted vehicle by selecting “Requesting fire at…” from the Command Menu.

MT-15: Hunt Down the Hunter
You can turn the tide of the battle by taking out enemy tank destroyers.

Think where you would position your tank destroyer if you drove one. This may be the spot where an enemy tank destroyer is hiding right now. TDs are often set up to cover the most common lanes of attack, so try hitting them from an unexpected direction.

HT-1: Debut
The guns of heavy tanks are powerful, but still benefit from skillful aim.

You will encounter other heavy tanks with very thick armor. Learn to aim at their thinner plates and at weak spots.

HT-2: Point Blank Shooting
Even in the most heated battle, your tank can destroy the enemy and survive.

The effectiveness of the Sniper mode significantly decreases when the enemy vehicle is getting closer. Sometimes it is better to switch to Arcade aim by pressing Shift or using the mouse wheel.

HT-3: Omnivorous
Prove that your tank can destroy an enemy vehicle of any type.

Every type of vehicle employs its own unique tactics on the battlefield. For example, medium tanks can easily outflank opponents, heavy tanks will most likely meet enemies head-on, and tank destroyers will prefer to position themselves on hills or hide behind bushes.

HT-4: Hit Them Where It Hurts!
You must know not only your own tank, but your opponents’ vehicles as well. Carefully study the vehicles that you are likely to encounter in battle and hit their weak spots.

You can immobilize an enemy vehicle by hitting its engine, while just one precise hit to the ammo rack of a vehicle can give you the upper hand in the most difficult duel. Internal modules are the turret ring, engine, fuel tanks, ammo rack, and radio.

HT-5: Target Acquired!
Leave your enemy no chances by hitting them at the first opportunity. Every successful hit brings your team one step closer to victory.

Constantly evaluate the situation on the battlefield. Often it is better to retreat from a disadvantageous situation, so you can cause more damage later.

HT-6: A Two-Course Meal
Most heavy tanks have extremely thick armor on the front. If you cannot flank them, try hitting the spots where the frontal armor is the thinnest. Weak spots usually include hatches, observation devices, the commander’s cupola, and the lower glacis plate.

As for medium tanks, you should be wary of their speed and maneuverability, as they usually avoid direct combat. Always monitor the minimap to quickly react to a medium tank’s unexpected arrival.

HT-7: I’ve Got It Covered
Heavy tanks are great for breakthrough tactics. Punch through the enemy defensive lines and capture their base. However, do not underestimate your enemy–they might employ the same strategy.

Be careful when approaching the enemy base–get ready for a “warm” reception. If you prefer defensive tactics, make use of the terrain to find the best concealment and vantage points, which you can use to defend your own base (or the neutral base in an Encounter Battle) against the approaching enemy.

HT-8: With Guns Blazing
Remember, your armor is your key strength. Cause as much damage as possible while your opponents enjoy the non-penetration messages over and over again.

As a heavy tank, you are the backbone of your team. Enemy heavy tanks are just as important. Take them on and try to destroy them first, or at least keep them busy for as long as possible.

HT-9: A Crushing Blow
Close-quarters engagements often render you unable to reload in time. In this situation, finish an enemy off by ramming them! The weaker the enemy vehicle’s armor at the point of impact, the more damage you will cause.

The driver’s Controlled Impact skill and the Spall Liner equipment can significantly reduce the damage done to your vehicle by ramming, and, at the same time, increase the damage of your own ramming attacks.

HT-10: A Weighty Argument
Keep your gun active and keep yourself alive as long as possible.

The heat of battle is exactly the time when your tank can show all it is worth. Your great armor protection, if used efficiently, will ensure survival even in an almost hopeless situation. The longer your tank survives in a battle, the more damage you can cause to the enemy.

HT-11: Not Even a Scratch!
Every module destroyed and crew member injured can become a problem. Try to keep them as safe as possible when breaking through the enemy ranks.

Use a First Aid Kit or a Repair Kit if the enemy destroys a key module of your vehicle or injures a crew member.

HT-12: Sturdy Armor
Your armor can block a great amount of damage if you use it well.

As much as possible, present your front armor to the enemy and hide your flanks and weak spots. Angle your armor to increase its effectiveness.

HT-13: Storm the Defense!
Not all heavy tanks are slow and clumsy. Some vehicles are able to get to the right place at the right time and push back against the enemies.

When playing as part of a Platoon, focus your fire on the enemy. Keep each other alive, tear into the enemy, and find a way to win the battle.

HT-14: Take that Hill!
Destroy all types of enemy vehicles, stop them cold, and leave them with no hope of victory.

Coordinate with your teammates and cover as much of the battlefield as possible with destructive fire.

HT-15: Tempered Steel
A heavy tank can hit hard, but it can also take a hit and keep battling. Engage the enemy and keep the pressure on.

Act carefully. Survive! Try to protect your side and rear armor from enemy fire. Heavy tanks can carry almost every battle, that is why they are always high-value targets for enemy SPGs. Keep a cool head and do not let them pin you down.

TD-1: Effective Performance
Tank destroyers are a great choice for players who like to destroy enemy vehicles from a distance.

Tank destroyers have serious firepower, but most are relatively fragile. Try engaging from long range–the accuracy of your gun allows for this.

TD-2: Aimed Fire
Destroying an enemy vehicle’s modules and injuring its crew members can render it almost useless.

A successful hit can damage or destroy the enemy vehicle’s modules or injure the crew. High-Explosive shells are sometimes effective for this purpose.

TD-3: Good Hunting!
The most important advantage of tank destroyers is their great firepower.

Many tank destroyers are lightly armored, and most lack turrets. Engaging at long range is usually the safest tactic.

TD-4: Ambush
Concealment is key to the survival of a tank destroyer.

Try to find a concealed position for firing. A thick bush or a fallen tree will do. A high camouflage rating will help you remain unspotted; so will engaging from long range.

TD-5: A Long-Range Gun
When you drive a tank destroyer, it is important to know how to effectively shoot at long range.

Wait until you are full aimed before firing. A hasty shot is often a wasted shot.

TD-6: They Shall Not Pass!
Try to keep enemy vehicles as far from your position as possible. Destroy them while they are approaching, as it will be much harder to blunt the attack in close combat.

Make sure that your vehicle is hidden behind bushes or fallen trees before firing. If your vehicle is 15 m behind a bush or fallen tree, you have a better chance of remaining concealed after firing.

TD-7: The First Strike
Do not let the enemy get too close to you: most TDs are thinly armored.

If an enemy vehicle is charging at you and you cannot penetrate its frontal armor, you may be able to immobilize it by destroying its tracks and get away. Study the parameters of your own vehicle. Some tank destroyers have strong frontal armor that can deflect considerable hits.

TD-8: A Huge Caliber
As a tank destroyer driver, you will be expected to cause more damage to enemies than the amount of HP of your own vehicle.

Look for every chance to damage enemy vehicles, but at the same time, also try to survive.

TD-9: Spot On!
The great characteristics of your gun compensate for the relatively weak armor protection of your vehicle.

Aim at the weak spots of an enemy vehicle such as the sides, rear, and lower glacis plate. It is also helpful to know the location of key components such as ammunition racks and fuel tanks. To play most effectively, you may wish to take a few special shells into battle. These shells can penetrate much thicker armor than standard ones.

TD-10: A Hidden Menace
If your tank destroyer is well-concealed, you can strike the unsuspecting enemy without them being able to respond.

Use camouflage and Camouflage Net. Keep your distance and let your teammates do the spotting. You serve your team by staying out of sight, but be in a position to fire when the opportunity arises.

TD-11: The Key Role
Your powerful gun is a force to be reckoned with. If, of course, you know how to shoot it.

A major challenge for tank destroyers is surviving the battle long enough to achieve their full damage-dealing potential. You must engage, but you must also stay alive.

TD-12: Big Game Hunting
Armed with your wits and an excellent gun, you can destroy enemy vehicles before they get close. Once an enemy heavy tank has been spotted, you can cause a lot of damage to them before they even spot you.

You have the potential to carry your team to victory. If you know the weak spots of enemy heavy tanks, the thickness of their armor cannot save them.

TD-13: Tank Hunters
Focus your fire and rapidly take down enemy tanks. Try to focus on vehicles that have already received damage–the faster they are destroyed, the greater your contribution to victory.

Most tank destroyers have excellent single-shot damage. Coordinate with Platoon mates and fire in volleys. Not many enemy vehicles can stand up to multiple, simultaneous hits.

TD-14: Big Hunt
In each battle, your aim is to win and deal as much damage as possible. Fortunately, your vehicle type is best suited to this purpose.

Save your vehicle’s hit points and avoid enemy fire. It’s not rocket science–the longer you survive, the more damage you cause.

TD-15: Triumph
When diplomacy fails, the guns start to speak. So get your loaded word in.

The more damage you cause in a battle, the better the chance of victory for your team. It is a simple rule that you should remember.

SPG-1: A Bold Claim
The large damage radius after a shell explosion is the key feature of SPG vehicles. Even if you have failed to deliver a direct hit to the target enemy vehicle, there is still a chance of causing serious trouble by stunning it. The enemy vehicle is marked with the stun indicator, which is visible to your allies. If your allies cause damage to the vehicles stunned by you, you will receive additional credits and experience for damage caused with your assistance.

SPG-2: Time is Money
An enemy vehicle remains stunned for a particular period of time and cannot do their best on the battlefield. Remember: a stunned vehicle becomes an easy target.

SPG-3: Slow and Steady Gets Stunned
Concealed and powerful enemy tank destroyers and well-armored heavy tanks can easily turn the tide of the battle. They are the first-priority targets, and causing damage to them (or assisting in their destruction) should be the primary objective for a player in an SPG. The majority of heavies and tank destroyers are slow and hulking, which increases the chances for a successful shot.

SPG-4: I’ll See You Through
Learn the major routes of the enemy heavy tanks and positions where the cunning tank destroyers usually hide. Aiming at a particular map area in advance increases the chances for effective and devastating fire at enemy positions. These types of vehicles usually follow rather predictable tactics on certain maps. Be smart: analyze the setup of the enemy team and select the most suitable position from the very start of the battle.

SPG-5: Sharing is Caring
Stunning enemy vehicles not only brings your team one step closer to victory, but also ensures you receive additional experience and credits if your allies cause damage to enemy vehicles stunned by you. Do not forget to mark the area you are aiming at (the T key by default) to notify and draw the attention of your allies.

SPG-6: Hammer of the Gods
The primary objective of SPGs is to provide fire support to allied vehicles. Stunned enemy vehicles are poor fighters, so your teammates will certainly appreciate your assistance. However, be cautious when firing: a careless shot can also stun an allied vehicle. Friendly fire will not be tolerated!

SPG-7: Careful Consideration
To complete this mission, use a selective approach to choosing your targets. Do not concentrate fire on one enemy vehicle, even if it is an easy target. The best strategy is to hit big groups of enemy vehicles with one shot. Study the maps and learn the basic routes of vehicles.

SPG-8: I Did My Best
You receive experience for all effective actions. Try to be the MVP: cause damage, assist in destroying enemy vehicles, and survive the battle. Change your position after every shot; otherwise, the counter fire of enemy SPGs can destroy your vehicle.

SPG-9: Collateral Damage
Powerful SPG HE shells can not only reduce the hit points of enemy vehicles, but also have a high chance of destroying modules or injuring crew members with splash damage.

SPG-10: All Included
The battle situation can change rapidly–always keep an eye on the minimap and make sure you have a clear view of enemy vehicles. You will have to move across the map all the time instead of staying in one position. Your allies rely on your SPG firepower, so do your best in the right place at the right time.

SPG-11: The Area of Effect
In addition to the considerable amount of damage their well-placed shots can cause, most SPGs have shells that can also stun all misplaced vehicles within the damage radius after the shell explosion. Many maps feature spots where enemy vehicles bunch together. Take the opportunity to send your highly “explosive” regards to them.

SPG-12: The Evil Eye
Your allies destroyed the stunned enemy vehicle? Good news for you, since it is your contribution that brings the desired victory one step closer! Your objective is to provide fire support and assist your allies in the right place at the right time.

SPG-13: C for Cooperation
Strong cooperation between SPGs and allies should make the enemy team extremely worried. Coordinate your actions and focus your fire on one enemy target at a time.

SPG-14: One of Us!
Cooperation is the key to victory for the whole team. Highlight the enemy vehicle you are aiming at for your allies to immediately bring down fire on it once it has been stunned or immobilized. Remember: a lone soldier can hardly make a battle.

SPG-15: War Gods
An SPG that survives for as long as possible is a real asset for the team. Keep firing one shell after another while trying not to get caught under enemy fire. Take your time and think twice before “pulling the trigger”, since “one shot–one hit” is the best strategy for a vehicle with a long reload time.
