100 Years of Tanks- “Trench Warfare”

Hello folks,

To celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the tanks combat debut at the Battle of Flers-Courcelette, World of Tanks Console will feature a special Trench Warfare mode with a playable Mark 1 tank, and the possibility of earning a Centenial Chieftain (Tier 8 Chieftain/T95 with WW1 bits and bobs added)


Mark 1 Tank

For the console event, players will be given a drivable Mk. 1. Stats for the Mk. 1 are as follows (from the console Tankopedia)

-Tier 1

-200 HP


-420h.p. Engine Power

-35km/h Speed Limit

-49deg/sec Hull Traverse

-36deg/sec Turret/Gun Traverse


-Hull: Front 21mm/ Sides 3mm/ Rear 3mm


-40 round ammo capacity

-23-38 Damage

-20-34mm Penetration

-Rate of Fire 26.25rounds per minute

-View Range: 270 meters

The tank’s armament is stated as a Hotchkiss 6 pdr with standard AP, as well as a flamethrower. The flamethrower will need to be refueled, and done so with fuel pickups scattered across the map.


The Mk. 1 also has a 400% XP and 50% Crew XP Bonus.


The Mk.1 will not be able to mount equipment, camo or inscriptions/emblems. It will be removed from the garage along with its slot at the end of the event. Any crew used in it will be transfered to the barracks.

This vid from WarGaming Europe’s YouTube channel gives a few glimpses of the Mk. 1 in action.

Earn the Centennial T95

A short while back, you may have read up on WoT Console adding in a Tier 8 Chieftain/T95. This bugger…

It’ll now be making its debut in game as an earnable tank. To earn the tank for free, players will need to earn 300 points over the course of three time-locked events.

Point Earns:

-1pt for destroying at least one enemy in a winning “Trench Warfare” battle

-1pt for destroying ar least one enemy in a winning Random Battle

Players will also earn an Event Boost if they place in the top 3 damage dealers for their team during a “Trench Warfare” battle. The Boost will grant a random number of points to the Operation when the player placed in the top three damage dealers in a Multiplayer Random Battle.

Those who wish may also purchase the Centenial Chieftain in a series of bundles available from Sept. 15th through Sept. 30th (along with the T-34-88 Soviet/German premium tank).

Event Times

Mark 1 Weekend 1 : Sept. 15 12:00 UTC*- Sept. 19 6:59UTC

Mark 1 Weekend 2: Sept. 23 7:01UTC- Sept. 26 6:59UTC

*tenative due to server maintenence.

Next couple of weeks will be busy for console players. I for one can’t wait to get my hands on that Mark 1 (even if she moves 10 times faster than reality, that flamethrower looks fun).

As for the Centenial Chieftain/T95, I am glad to see a premium added thats truly unique, and not just a tech tree tank with a bright paint job. The sand bags and barbed wire seem odd on a machine from the early Cold War, but what can you do?

Still, they had me at flamethrowers…

    1. I added a video from WG EU that has a few glimpses of the Mk.1 firing. But until we can get our hands on it, I can’t say anything for sure regarding the firing mechanics.

        This used to be PC-only blog. Now we have lots of stuff that old readers are not interested in. Is it unreasonable to have an option to skip them? Too bad, I cannot skip anonymous IDIOTS as well…

      I used to know this guy that had a fat, ugly girlfriend. But it really didn’t matter. She was awesome, had a great personality and they really clicked. But he was aware that she wasn’t attractive. Whenever an actually nice looking girl (a So Cal 8, which is a Denver 9.97) would walk by, or one of us started seeing a nice looking woman, he would say she was ugly. He would point out how one eye was a millimeter higher then the other, or that her left anterior superior spinous process of the illium was too pronounced (he was in med school) and we all just gave each other that knowing look. How could somebody date a Bulgarian beast for three years and try to point out minor flaws of beautiful women.

      I suppose you would be nothing like Walter. You have an open mind. You would never be caught the fool having a wildebeest on your arm and point out that Megan Fox has big toe thumbs….right?

    It is really annoying and disturbing, that the pc version gets a game mode with machine gun cars while console gets playable mark I tank…

    why would they even come up with that convoy event..?

    1. **Wintermute** says:

      It is a boring mode, head to H9 and hope the cousin fuckers help you focus fire. But as long as you are top 3 in damage you win a boost op. I have 45 boost ops and only used 7 to close out the first of three 100 point stages. But the mark can train any crew and it has a very healthy crew XP coefficient.

  2. Refresh my memory, but the original Chieftain/T95 was a CW reward tank on PC, yes? Because if that’s the case, there’s no excuse now. If it isn’t, well…
    Hey, console actually does get some nice stuff, but I won’t shell out a few hundred for one sole game. Seems like a bit of a waste.

    So none of this is coming to WOT PC?…wow the one chance to get a British medium that isn’t slow without forking out time for CW is only on console…

      I helped one of my staff’s children buy a gaming rig. We were in Madrid and she called, said her overweight son had lost his girlfriend. Come to find out the fool had sent 200 to some scam artist in Bhutan, had the guy believing she was real and they were soul mates. The kid is so pathetic he places value on being a “PC gamer”


      I like collecting card and traveling. For a few hours a week I also enjoy sitting on my sectional and playing pixel tanks on my 4K curved tv in the game room. The wife won’t let me convert the third spare bedroom into a home theater. But she did not complain when I bought my Vienna Acoustics speakers. I bought her a horse.

      The horse that fucked your mom.
