Should I Spend Donuts On the WWII Tank (& Sgt. Skinner)?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The military event, long teased in the app store descriptions, as finally hit our towns and the kids of Springfield are about to get schooled at the finest Military Academy virtual money can buy…in Springfield.  Yes, Rommelwood Academy is here with all the drills, in your face spitting yelling and military inspired premium items our pocket-sized Springfields (and wallets) can handle.

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the WWII Tank (and Sgt. Skinner) to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this big green machine to your Springfield…


Decoration/Building: WWII Tank
Donut Price: 40 Dounts
If you don’t have Sgt. Skinner he’ll be offered with the tank for 100 Donuts
Bonus %: 1% bonus on all cash and XP
Size: 7×4
Conform-O-Meter: Obedience +10

Leaves Stores March 28th

These pros and cons apply to the Tank only.  I’ll give a quick paragraph about Sgt. Skinner after them…

-Another tank for Springfield, chance to pick it up if you skipped the police one.
-Animated when tapped, tank shoots (a “problem for another Springfield”)

-Bonus % is terrible for donuts spent.  Usually 40 donuts yields 2% bonus

Note about Sgt. Skinner:
Anytime you can get a character combo for 100 donuts (or around there) I always tell you pick it up.  Despite a lousy bonus, it’s still a bonus.  Sgt. Skinner is a fun character, with a fun questline.  So if you’re offered the combo, I’d pick it up.

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
The bonus % is lousy, but it’s one of those if you like it get it items.  If you think you’ll have a use for the decoration in your Springfield pick it up.  But don’t buy it for the bonus %.  Buy it because you like it and have a use for it. If not, pass.

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do.  And I can tell you as a premium player, I’m debating picking this one up.  Trying to figure out if it’ll work with my design concept.   Just remember this is limited time, and will be leaving our stores next week.  So be sure to make your final decision before it’s gone from our games for good. (or for now..)

What are your thoughts on the WWII Tank?  Will you be picking it up or have you already?  Where have you placed it in your Springfield? What were some of your reasons for picking it up or passing? Did you have Sgt. Skinner already?  Or did you buy the tank because he was included? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. I got the tank in the Yearbook, but but Sgt. Skinner doesn’t appear to come worth it unfortunately unless I overlooked something. I placed the tank and checked my inventory for the character. Is there anything else I might be missing to unlock him or do you think he’s simply not bundled with the tank in the yearbook? Thank you!

  2. Hi, I am a user that doesn’t spend real money so I am asking should I spend my hardly earned donuts on this, the turists, or wait for something better in future?

  3. Guess I might the only one who doesn’t like Sgt Skinner. He’s been in my storage since whatever event he was a prize in.

      If I recall correctly it was the event that brought us the future characters. I could be wrong, but that’s what comes to (my😂) mind 😊

  4. Trying to decide between the Sgt. and the Tourists.

  5. I have Hermans antique shop in a small compound. Filled with nukes, canons, bomb shelters and training dummies. The tank fitted in quite well. Put hanger 18 in there too.

  6. The eliminator gives out prizes, any idea what they are?, just got the punchbag

  7. I got it just because I was from the Armour Corps while serving the country 😀

    I heard that you can get the tank by sending Cadet lisa to conqer the eliminater. They said it happens but it is rare. If someone could tell me if this is true that would be great.

    I bought it, I already had Sgt. Skinner, but the tank is so cool looking 😊 I’m contemplating another one, it depends on my final design (the tank & another barracks 😀

  10. When the tank shoots, does it do anything (like the way the police tank blows up a building)?

  11. No idea what to do with this. It really doesn’t fit in anywhere.

  12. I had to get this as I missed out on Sgt Skinner over the summer due to a holiday without WiFi.
    This and the tourists has cleaned me out of bonus. Hopefully there won’t be anything else coming just yet!

  13. He earns at standard rate still, not the premium rate you usually get with premium purchases. It may change though.

  14. This was kind of an instant buy for me as I didn’t have Sgt. Skinner yet, regretted not being able to pick him up on the prize track during the sci-fi event as I was really busy around that time and just had to get him.

  15. I got three tanks. Maybe it is a guy thing. I was in a tank armour unit too while in military service

  16. If you haven’t got Sgt. Skinner then I recommend getting this combo as he is a fun character and his tied up visual task will forever be perfect for ‘Caption This!’ submissions :D.
