Update 1.3: Customization

Ever since December 2017, we've been testing new customization mechanics with big updates coming throughout this year. Update 1.3 is no different and the focal point is large scale projection decals.


These big works of art will add more character to your vehicle. All these itams are in a specific tab — check it out and deck out your vehicles in an assortment of new décor.

Approximately 40 original, historical, and non-historical, decals are available for both Tier X and Premium Tier VIII vehicles. Each vehicle has two decal slots per season maximum, and — depending on the slot — the size of the decal may change.

NOTE: The IS- 6 B, T34 B, and Schwarzpanzer 58 cannot be customized.

With these newest additions and the year drawing to a close, we thought it would be a perfect time to take a look back from the first big customization update to present.

December 2017

Update 9.21:

  • With Update 9.21, we got the ball rolling and detailed that throughout 2018, we would be reshaping customization to make it more sophisticated and complex system.
  • The groundwork was set by adding style sets and mapping out a set of customizable areas on any given tank.
  • In December, you could paint the hull, turret, gun, suspension, and gun mantlet separately.
  • As well as this, you could adjust camo sizes and give your vehicle a distinct look with visual effects.
May 2018

Honorable Mention:

June 2018

Update 1.0.2:

  • Building on the foundations we laid at the end of the year, we added customization for Tier VI, VIII, and X tanks.
  • Also, when styling out your vehicles it was often hard to see what it would look like on the battlefield when compared to the Garage. As such the new Garage allowed for better lighting so whether it was inside or out, it would look ultimately the same.
  • And finally, in the summer we reworked the entire interface to make it more streamlined and easier to use.
June-July 2018

Football Mode:

  • With the football (soccer in the U.S.) looming large in Russia over the summer, a special style was all the rage and for those lucky enough to do well in the in-game tournaments, there were unique weekly rewards to adorn your tanks in.
August 2018

Tier X:

  • We broadened the customization options to a whole new Tier: Tier IX.
Future Updates (2019-Onward)
  • We can’t give all the details away just yet, big changes are coming to customization.
