The game works on the freemium
distribution model, which means that "world of tanks" is free to
download and play. Other freemium titles include "battlefield heroes"
and "age of empires online."
"World of tanks" allows
for tank battles of up to two 15-tank teams for a total of 30 tanks on a single
battlefield. Maps range in size from less than 1 square kilometer for urban
maps up to 25 square kilometers for battles that occur in more open places, such
as the desert of North Africa. All tanks are rendered with historical accuracy,
including every detail of armament, maneuvering, vehicle characteristics, and
much more. Tanks and vehicles are classified into five categories: light tanks,
medium tanks, heavy tanks, tank destroyers, and spgs
