The Valentine is a British infantry tank, built in a variety of marks (or variants) during the war. Used extensively in the battles of North Africa it had a reputation for being a well-protected vehicle, capable of operating under heavy enemy fire. As the war progressed the little Valentine was surpassed by larger tanks, capable of mounting heavier guns and more armour.
The Valentine Expansion Pack brings another first to the World of Tanks Miniatures Game, being the first light tank. Traditionally light tanks combine high speed with the ability to scout out and distract enemy tanks, providing friendly tanks with an easier kill.
It will come as no surprise to online gamers that the Valentine is slow, in fact with a Mobility of 1 it is the slowest tank in the game, but with a reputation for having a good selection of guns and relatively high armour it is thought of as being a ‘pocket heavy tank’. Players can choose to keep the QF 6-pdr gun that is standard on the tank, or upgrade it to the QF 2-pdr Mk.X gun. This does bring down the ability of the tank to deal damage but significantly increases the tanks Initiative, allowing it to both outmanoeuvre the enemy and land shots quickly.
Inside the Valentine Expansion Pack you will find a highly detailed, assembled, painted plastic Valentine miniature and tank card. Your tank can be further personalised to match your requirements using the five crew, module and upgrade cards included.
We will take a more in-depth look at everything included in this expansion and how you can get the most out of the tank and the included cards in a future preview.
The only Light Tank in Wave 1, the Valentine brings some awesome synergies to the rest of its Platoon, but only if it can get close to its target.
Contains a 1:100 scale pre-painted Tank, 5 Crew, Module, and Upgrade Cards, and an Online Bonus Code.
