Most consumables can be used multiple times during a battle (With a few exceptions; see each nations premium food consumable, the various octane gasoline and oil consumables, and the passive effects of the Large Repair kit, Large First Aid kit and Automatic Fire Extinguisher), and are used to provide a bonus during the battle. Various types of consumables are used to repair tank modules, increase tank performance, and heal crew members.

With the release of the 9.18 update, the premium and standard versions of the Repair kit, First Aid kit and Fire Extinguisher are reusable; when activated, the consumable will be unavailable for a 90 second cool down with a timer underneath the consumable informing you how long the cool down will last. You will also only pay for the consumable once if you use the consumable more than one time throughout the battle; therefore you can use the consumable as many times as you like and only pay the standard price once.

Consumables come in two forms: Regular Consumables and Premium Consumables. You can carry up to three different consumables in a single tank. While you cannot carry two identical consumable items, you can carry a regular consumable and its premium counterpart, e.g., the small repair kit and large repair kit. By default, consumables are activated by pressing keys '4,' '5,' or '6,' depending on the consumable desired (unless the hot keys have been remapped).

Originally, you could only purchase Premium Consumables with gold, but since version 8.5 you could also purchase Premium Consumables with their same gold value in credits (e.g., 50 gold = 20,000 credits) and since [update 1.1] you can only purchase Premium Consumables for credits.

Directives are special personal reserves which are mounted on Tier V–X vehicles before combat. They give an additional advantage in the midst of battle.

There are two types of directives:

  • For equipment. These directives increase the effect of mounted equipment. You can purchase them for bonds.
  • For crew. These directives improve the trained skills/perks of crew members, or activate those not yet trained. You can purchase them for credits.

Mounting Directives

You can mount only one directive on your vehicle before a battle. The mounted directive is effective for one battle.

To mount a directive:

  1. Click the directives slot.
  2. Select the desired directive and click on it.
  3. Click Apply. The directive is purchased and mounted on the selected vehicle. If the directive has already been purchased, it is mounted on the selected vehicle from the Depot.


You can purchase more than one directive by clicking Re-purchase-button.jpg (Purchase) under its name. Spare directives are stored in the Depot in the Stock section under the Consumables tab.

To automatically supply and mount the selected directive after it has been used in battle, click the Auto‑resupply checkbox.

Currently, some directives can only be received in limited quantities as a reward for in-game events. The following directives are unavailable for purchase:

  • Fuel Filter Replacement
  • Polished Lens
  • Exhaust Insulation

These directives are automatically resupplied only until they are available in the Depot.

Removing Directives

To remove a mounted directive:

  1. Click the directives slot.
  2. Click Send-to-depot-button.jpg (Send to Depot) under the name of the mounted directive.
  3. Click Apply. The directive is sent to the Depot and can be mounted on another vehicle.

Please note that directives cannot be sold.
