HMS TOG II* in the Shop 'Til Halloween!

The TOG II* (also known as the Land Yacht,  XP Piñata, etc.) chugs its way back into our hearts and the Premium Shop! If you don't already own this one-of-a-kind heavy tank, don't miss the chance to pick it up. It moves painfully slow, but soaks up damage while using its fearsome weapon against cowering foes. For more tips on how to play the TOG II*, take a look below.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

The Good

  • Won't see above tier VII unless Platooned with a non-preferential tank
  • Gun has great depression and you can send a lot of shots downrange in a hurry
  • Unique look and play style
  • Good Credit earner
  • Massive HP pool and weight; soak up ramming or shell damage with ease
  • A great Crew trainer for the British heavy line, though you'll need to add a few more members to run it

The Bad

  • Flat, thin armor -- won't bounce many hits
  • Big and slow with low top speed. A tempting target for artillery!
  • Best in a support role, not domination
  • Ammo rack might as well be made of pudding

The Ugly

  • Don't even try shooting heavy armor from the front; instead aim for the tracks and leave your enemies immobile and vulnerable!

Reasons to Buy

  • You want to earn Credits
  • You like the support style of gameplay
  • You want to drive a hilariously large tank

Reasons Not to Buy

  • You want a faster Premium heavy tank (check out the Excelsior)
  • You prefer to flank (get a Škoda T 40)
  • You want an actual aircraft carrier instead of a tank that looks like one (we hear World of Warships is pretty fun)

Play Style

  • The TOG ambles along at a stately pace, so you'll need to commit to one direction early on in a battle and follow that plan through to the best of your ability.
  • As a heavy tank with thin armor, you'll need to trade HP for damage in nearly every exchange of fire with the enemy.
  • Make sure you have enough to come out on top by leaving the majority of your tank covered by buildings or terrain in order to reduce your exposure to enemy fire and any damage that results from it.
  • Even though you're slower than most tanks, try not to stop moving -- especially on open maps.


These are only suggestions! Feel free to see what works best for you.

Alternatively, Enhanced Gun Laying Drive can result in faster aiming speed.

Crew Skills and Perks

Boosting "Repairs" and gunnery skills are crucial in this tank, as are "Sixth Sense" and "Safe Stowage". The first Skill alerts you when you've been spotted, and the second reduces the chance of debilitating ammo rack damage. "Brothers in Arms" will increase all your Crew Skills.
