The WZ-113 exclusively gets the new “Bronze Warrior” Camouflage costing 2,550 gold and is renamed the tank the “WZ-112 Bronze Warrior”
The rare camouflage (available for all tanks) is the rare “Woodland Ranger”, Costing 65 to 750 gold depending on tier.
Sadly (for the people who like these camos), the camos “Desert Wind” and “Crimson Fury” are removed from sale.
