    In the X-ray mode you can see armor model of every tank in the game. Crew and modules locations are only available to some of them, WG doesn't disclose these locations for new tanks. We show modules locations only for tanks that are exist in console version of World of Tanks, since such information is available on the client side.

    X-ray mode also allows to view the visual HD models of the tanks, either textured or not textured. Textures and models are served at our own cost, so free users are limited to download only tank model once a day.


    Confrontation mode will help you compare and understand how armor of one particular target tank performs against one particular shooter, or vice versa. Here first you need to select two tanks. The first one is shooter and the second one is target. For shooter you can also choose what ammo to use, the shot is simulated taking into account all aspects of the WoT mechanics.

    There are several views in this mode: red-green gradient showing just the pen chances, modules view and blitz-like hitskins mixing textures and pen chances.


    Collision mode is for calculating potential damage both tanks receive during ramming. Here you choose the tanks, set their speeds up and the app calculates ramming damage for both. The exact formula of damage calculation is never disclosed so we did several tests in the training rooms, gathering large number of data (weights, velocities, impact direction and points) and extrapolate the results to other tanks.
