World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition – Get to Know the TOG II*

Tankers!

“Beached Whale”, “Landboat”, “LOG”. The TOG II* has many nicknames owing to its sheer size: this tank is massive at over 10 meters—33 feet!—in length. A tank whose size equals a lot of weight, meaning the TOG II* is slow—almost the slowest vehicle in World of Tanks. But while the TOG II* won’t win any races, its hefty size grants it the best hitpoint pool in its tier, and its 17-pounder gun has good RPM and great penetration. If you’re patient enough to drive the TOG II* into battle, its high survivability and powerful gun are well worth the time it takes to engage the enemy.

You can find the complete guide over at Wargaming’s website located here.
