Does anyone know which types correspond to which tiers? for instance is a tier 5 considered a medium type?

Types of tanks are different from tiers. If you look at the tech tree, you can see when each nation starts to get different tank types. If you go to blitzstars.com and choose Tank Compare, you can check out each type tier by tier.

Edit: you can also use blitzstars to see how well you are doing.

The tank type is its class of vehicle and the game characteristics given to it.

These are Light, medium, heavy and td/tank destroyer.

These are the icons given to the tanks 

diamond for lights. These are usually the fastest, less armored tanks.

// two bars are medium tanks. These are usually fast, mobile tanks with good armor.

/// three bars are heavy tanks. These are usually slower, bigger and have better armor.

triangle are TDs. These usually have the better guns with a mix of the above characturistics. 

There is more to this but this is a very rough idea.


Tiers are just the level of tank in the tech trees.

So normally you will only fight tanks a tier above or bellow you.

So a tier 5 tank will fight tiers 4/5/6


The tanks tiers does not mean it will be a specific type.

Progressing up the tech tree can see the tanks change classes but this is too do more with the tanks role changing to something more armored.
