Equipment improves the effectiveness of the tank in combat. Unlike consumables, equipments are one-time cost additions with each having it's own advantage, but they come at a high cost. Equipment availability and costs vary by tank tier, class and nation.

Equipment can only be used on the tank it is installed to. If you want to use it on another tank you need to demount it first. This option is available when clicking the the installed equipment on the garage screen. Demounting removes the item from your tank and sends it to your Depot, making it available for use on another vehicle.

Purchasing from your vehicle's equipment panel is the best way to ensure compatibility. Only purchase from the store for vehicle's you don't own yet and only if you have a firm understanding of the equipment system.

With respect to demounting equipment, two types of equipment need to be distinguished:

  • Removable Equipment that can be demounted at no cost for re-use.
  • Complex Equipment is permanently installed to your tank. This is indicated in game by a gold nut on the equipment icon. Demounting complex equipment costs 10 gold, or alternatively it can be destroyed without compensation. Destroyed equipment is lost and cannot be retrieved.
Removable Equipment
Icon Equipment Name Cost (credits) Weight (kg) Description
CamouflageNet.png
Camouflage Net
100,000 100 +25% to the tank's camouflage factor when the tank hull is stationary for 3 seconds.

Highly recommended for Tank Destroyers and many SPGs.
Stereoscope.png
Binocular Telescope
500,000 50 +25% View Range when tank hull is stationary for 3 seconds.

Recommended for Tank Destroyers and passive scouts.
Toolbox.png
Toolbox
500,000 100 +25% Repair speed.

Particularly useful if your crew does not have a high repair skill of their own yet. Most people buy the Toolbox for faster repair of their tank's tracks, which is very important as an immobile tank is easy prey for SPG and sniping tanks.


Complex Equipment
Durability
Icon Equipment Name Cost (credits) Weight (kg) Description
AntifragmentationLining.png
Small Spall Liner
50,000 250 +15% Armor protection from ramming and explosions.

Increases armor thickness by 15% when calculating splash damage from High Explosive (HE) shells (near misses and non-penetrating hits both from tanks and SPGs) or from collisions with other tanks. Has no effect on penetrating hits from HE or other shells. Primarily useful on tanks that are already heavily armored, especially any of the Heavy Tanks with the most armor for their tier.
Medium Spall Liner 200,000 500
Large Spall Liner 500,000 1000
WetCombatPack.png
"Wet" Ammo Rack Class 1
200,000 1% of tank weight +50% Ammo Rack hit points.

Buy this if you feel that your tank is very prone to ammo rack damage and ammo rack explosions.
"Wet" Ammo Rack Class 2 600,000
FilterCyclone.png
Cyclone Filter
500,000 10 +50% Engine hit points.

Buy this if you feel your tank is very prone to engine damage. It's also useful if you like to use a Removed Speed Governor.

Available only for Soviet tanks. Does not include Soviet crewed Lend Lease vehicles.
CarbonDioxide.png
Fill Tanks with CO2
500,000 50 +50% Fuel Tank hit points.

Buy this if you feel that hits to the fuel tank are causing you problems.

Available from tier 6.
EnhancedSuspension.png
Enhanced Springs
20,000 0 +10% Suspension Load Limit and +30% to Suspension hit points.

A higher load limit does not improve acceleration, traverse rates, or anything else. It just increases the max. weight capacity and can be useful while still using the tank's stock tracks. The more useful aspect of this equipment, which unfortunately does not appear on the in-game description, is the increase to suspension hit points, which makes your tank harder to de-track.

Available on most vehicles.

Enh. Vickers Suspension 20,000
Enh. Horizontal Coil Springs 1 Class 20,000
Enh. Vertical Coil Springs 1 Class 20,000
Enh. Vertical Leaf Springs 20,000
