The AC 1 Sentinel is the first Australian (ANZAC / Commonwealth) vehicle in World of Tanks, and quite a quirky one!
The recent Premium Shop bundles also included:
The Sentinel's standard configuration is more than adequate for most tier IV matches -- a shell with 88mm penetration means it can penetrate most tier IV, V and tier VI heavy tanks. 1,220 damage per minute can give the Grant, Lee and Matilda medium tanks a run for their money. But with its dispersion, tanks like the Matilda will win a head-to-head. AC 1 does have more ammo than the Matilda, though, so if you can avoid the face-offs, it's possible to outlast opponents in long firefights.
To compete with tiers V-VI, the AC 1 can be fully loaded with Premium ammunition, a Gun Rammer and Vents to give it 121mm of penetration and 1,421 damage per minute.
The Sentinel is especially effective when located on a hill above an opponent and placed in a semi-hull-down position to utilize its front and turret armor.
The Sentinel struggles in higher-tier matches, but can still play its part!
Don't forget to check the minimap frequently to figure out where you'll be the most effective!
Large Repair and First Aid Kits actually reduce the chance of damage or Crew injury. While you can use Pudding and Tea instead of the Fire Extinguisher to improve your overall performance in battle, this presents a large fire risk. Keep in mind that consumables need to be replenished after each battle if used, while food or gas items are used automatically.

Overall, the Sentinel plays a like a lighter and quicker version of the Matilda. If you're looking for a tier IV medium tank with a little more "get up and go," this may be the tank for you!
