Japan HT Swap to Tiger 131

Japan HT Swap to Tiger 131


  • Simple method: Copy/Move the <vehicle name>.wotmod file from the archive (zip) to the World of Tanks/mods/x.x.x folder, where x.x.x is current game version
  • Better method: Create a folder in the World of Tanks/mods/x.x.x folder, where x.x.x is current game version, named vehicles.  Then move the <vehicle name>.wotmod file from the archive (zip) into the that vehicles folder.  This keeps things a little more organized.
  • Caution: Only one choice per tank will work, moving more that one choice will cause WoT to error out on loading

Individual Remodels and Custom Skins by Nation.


I realize some of you may not appreciate my camo or color choices. So in the future I will try to include the (pdn) files in the upload.  You will need to go into the wotmod file and copy them out of there, but that is not too difficult. Then you can use to remove camo or change skin colors.

For download go to the Grandpa’s Custom Skins page or the Modifications and Crew page

Also check on the  Yandex Disk  and/or my thread on NA forums
