In World of Tanks, amid the chaos and thunder of the battlefield, one role stands out the most: Artillery, or Self-Propelled Guns. The skillset required to play the Artillery role is drastically different from any other role, though there are similarities to Snipers. To be an effective Artillery player, you must be elusive, precise, and persistent, constantly pressuring the enemy’s most valuable targets while eluding the scouts and snipers that want to shut you down.

To position and aim as an Artillery player requires a degree of awareness and discipline that many players simply do not wish to cultivate — but you are different, and for that reason, you have the ability to almost single handedly turn the tide of battle with well placed, highly destructive shots using these awe-inspiring Self Propelled Guns.

Best American Artillery: T92 HMC

The T92 HMC, also known as “King Kong,” is the hardest-hitting Artillery in the game with a slow firing, high damage, high splash, high stun shot that can disable even the hardiest opponents.
