It's an Action game. Remember, it is all about your skill and reaction time, whether you take part in operations to spot, track, and destroy enemy units or engage in head-to-head gun battles.

It's a Shooter. The flexible camera provides a range of viewpoints, from arcade-like third-person to sniper-like views straight down the gunsights, with simple controls to handle your tank smoothly on the battlefield.

It's a Strategy game. Rally your comrades, devise a battle plan, and assign roles--then move out and defeat your enemy on the field of battle.

Wide Variety of Maps

A huge selection of maps featuring a mix of open fields and industrial zones offers not only an impressive spectacle but also the tactical challenge of a variety of battle conditions.

Global Domination in Clan Wars

There's nothing better for conquering than the global map, divided into provinces and ready to be dominated by you and a team of friends. Invade hostile territories, ally with other groups to destroy your enemies, and employ trade and negotiation.

Take Control of Historically Accurate Tanks

Throw yourself into the epic tank battles of World War II with other steel cowboys all over the world. Your arsenal includes more than 150 armored vehicles from America, Germany, and the Soviet Union from the 1930's to the 1950's, carefully detailed with historical accuracy.

Light Tanks are fast mobile scouts used to detect enemies for artillery or to destroy enemy artillery.

Medium Tanks are agile multi-purpose tanks able to take on many roles such as scouts, support, or even front-line tanks.

Heavy Tanks are large and heavy vehicles designed to turn the tide on a battlefield through irresistible force. Heavy armor and powerful cannons make each heavy tank a force with which to be reckoned with.

Tank Destroyers (also known as Anti-Tank) are vehicles designed specifically to destroy enemy tanks. They have more powerful weapons than most other vehicles of their class and are able to penetrate most targets they encounter.

Self-Propelled Guns (also known as artillery or arty, hereafter SPGs) provide powerful indirect fire support, with a very large range that can potentially cover the entire map. They stay safe by remaining well within friendly lines, and provide support against tough stationary or slow targets.

Great for overclocking too.
E. E. Coad
Probably should have jumped on 2 of these, but I don't think that I will see a huge benefit adding more than 8GB of RAM.
Geoffrey Bunger
It works fine in both computers.

I bought two of these Kingston Hyper X 8GB matched pair modules from another vendor, two weeks later I tried to buy two more, only to find out these were a Limited Edition and have been discontinued. Matched timings in ram modules are important in a high performance PC, and Amazon saved the day. Great for overclocking too.

And at half the price of the original MSRP($54.99 a pair 4GB each), these are a bargain.

Bought this set to match my other pair of Kingston Hyper X X1 Black Series 8GB DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) 240-Pin SDRAM units, and am loving the performance increase. Thank you.

These memory sticks require a little tough love in my system. They needed to be manually tweaked to run as 1600 and pull a little higher voltage than I would prefer, 1.65v. I bought a mobo (M5A97) that I wanted to overclock with, but find this memory *may* restrict me from doing too much as my system becomes to unstable even with modest overclocking. I am a novice builder as far as that skill set goes, but pretty crafty when it comes to researching issues and troubleshooting, so I can say with some level of confidence it is the memory costing me that extra horse power. I've decided to upgrade from these 8gb sticks to 16gb from another brand to give my system a little more oomph, and also see definitively if this memory was holding my system back.

For now I can say I would not recommend these unless they go on sale at a very reduced price like $20 ( i bought these for $30.99 in late 2011)
