Battle of Kursk Challenge 2021

Tankers,

It's the 78th anniversary of the Battle of Kursk. On July 12, 1943, German and Soviet forces engaged in what is widely regarded as one of the largest clashes of armor in the history of warfare in Prokhorovka on the Eastern Front. Although German forces had fewer losses in that particular skirmish, the overall Kursk campaign went to the Soviets. From that moment forward, Germany mostly on the defensive against the advancing Red Army until the end of World War II. For a complete historical breakdown of the 50-day clash, please see our Chronology dedicated article and video featuring testimony of veterans who fought in the battle.

In recognition of the historic battle, we have themed missions that yield Tokens you can redeem at the in-game Battle Store. Simply complete as many missions as possible each day to earn the maximum number of Tokens. To give you a head start, we give a one-time reward of one (1) Token for free when you log into the game during the event!

You can also find a hidden mission that rewards 1× Token. Hint: It takes place on a specific map and to the victor go the spoils.

We've also got a special vehicle bundle in the Premium Shop that includes three (3) tanks and fantastic styles. Don't miss the "Kantemirovets" 3D Style that features a red flag flying atop the T-34-85!
