  3. Click the Recovery tab. Premium and rare tanks available for restoration will be listed.
  4. Click the vehicle you want to recover.

Vehicles taken away by Player Support, vehicle rentals, or any non-Premium vehicle, can't be restored.


  • Premium vehicles (available in the Tech Tree) can be restored in-game up to 72h after their sale. After that, check the Vehicle Restoration Tool (VRT)
  • Rare and other Premium vehicles (not available in the Tech Tree) can be restored at any time. They have no time limit.
  • A vehicle restoration requires one (1) vacant garage slot.
  • The buyback cost in credits runs at the selling value plus a 10% fee.
