The special focuses on American and French TD's as they're "Allied" tanks.

Regarding the Hellcat and Wolverine, they featured in an event earlier in the month where they were 50% discounted which is why they are absent.

Hellcat was on sale last week..... bought it then..


Anyway it's really strange that there is nothing that applies for other tanks/classes. Usually we get one or more of the usual: 3(5)x win, extra crew training, cheaper consumable, cheaper garage slots etc etc....
now .... nothing.

Nice special and not going to get too 'conspiratorial' about it other than to say is doesn't interest me since the tanks I play are above these levels. Pity though. I reckon it's aimed at getting all the lowered tiered / newish players closer to the higher tiers where the grinds are more frustrating and so on?

Be nice if they included something on consumables or similar since that would cater for everyone and not just the specific tank classes. Something for them to think about next time. I'm not buying back tanks I was happy to depart with long ago :)

Lol, OK, that's enough for now. I'll take a break for the weekend since there's nothing here for me to get excited about. Good luck folks, good luck tanking.

U.S.S.R were also allies, but after 1942; that year Churchill held a meeting with Roosevelt and Stalin, a year after Japan attacked Pear Harbor in USA and Germans invading Russian territory. But they were allies in front of the cameras, behind it, they were just looking their own interest (all three nations that is) :Smile_Default:

My suspicions were true! M36 and T49 here I come. Both unlocked and fully researched (only tracks and turret needed) and with crews waiting for them, just the 50% off special for them was missing and here it is! 6th special in a row that has one or more tanks that I want on discount.

Certainly a lot better then the previous tank destroyer special, this one is ok, sadly the germans aren't invited, but that's also why it is called ALLIED invasion...so it makes perfect sense :)

Must have gone blind there for a second. Thanks for the anwser.

Umm, T25/2 is not horrible. But it ain't as good as T25 AT. I have to say that I grinded it before it got a significant income nerf, so it might be worse now than when I used it. Generally I would give it a 6/10. Pros are turret, decent mobility for a TD and good mantlet armor. Cons are bad hull armor, average gun (should be above avg IMO since it's a TD). I remember disliking it alot in the beginning, despite having the top modules for quite a long time from the other TD line. But once I got used to the small gun, and got a 100% crew with good camo it turned out okay.

Looking back on it, the only reason I played it was because of my OCD of having all american vehicles played and elited. If I could go back I wouldn't have wasted my time on it. But still, I can very well see how someone would like the vehicle, even love it, because it has it's own little special treats and tactics. I say give it a go if you want, but the T25 AT is a class above it. Only real reason to play this vehicle is to get T30 and T110E4.
T-25/2 - average mobility when elited, crap armor, anything pens you, arty usually one-shots you. Top gun has low DPM and pen, not to mention alpha. On average you get 10k-14k per match not counting repair and ammo (if you do at least 1k dmg). Slow rotating turret gives little bonus but not enough to make up for all cons.

Overall, ALL T7 tanks own you in 1v1.

Invasion of the Destroyers

thats how it is announced in the calendar...
so thanks for nothing, another misleading special with no worth to players that dont own any of these tanks or dont have any interest in using/owning them.

Commanders of Tank Destroyers will be pleased with these bonuses!
