UPDATE: There have been multiple reports of this achievement not working/tracking correctly lately--please read some of the later comments for some different ideas of what is happening. Keep an eye on your achievement progress tracker, and see if it is tracking properly!

This is either as easy or as hard as it sounds depending on how much you like low Tier tanks. They can be any enemies, from a mix of countries, you just have to get any 5 kills each with any 5 different Japanese tanks for a total of 25 kills. (You can sell the tanks after you get the 5 kills, not keeping all 5 at once--thanks for the reminder VegaDark541 and xxvadi!)

I personally did this with the first 5 available Japanese Tanks:
Tier 1: R. Otsu
Tier 2: Ha-Go and Chi-Ni
Tier 3: Ke-Ni and Chi-Ha

It's simply a matter of playing. I highly recommend getting the upgrades for the tanks though, and if you like close quarters fighting, the multiple shot upgrades are a must.
VegaDark541Can you sell the tank after you are done with your 5 kills or do you have to keep them all until you are completely done for it to work?

Raptor DEM0NYou can sell it, I did too.

Shadow 00 FoxOh, good point!! I'm adding that to the solution, I completely forgot about that aspect of some of these silly achievements... toast

MoneyShot360Is there anywhere this is tracked so you can see what you have destroyed with each tank?
Posted by MoneyShot360 on 24 Aug 15 at 17:34
Shadow 00 FoxYes! Go to your tank stats screen, and scroll down to the tanks you're using. The tanks in your inventory are at the top by country, and the tanks that you've sold but previously had are at the bottom sorted by country.

DabigamcAlso just done Ace Tanker with Otzu haha.

It holds its own against other tier 1's laugh

motterIt slipped for me, got 5+ kills with the first 5 Japanese Tanks :(

Shadow 00 FoxDo you mean the achievement didn't pop?
Posted by Shadow 00 Fox on 21 Oct 15 at 18:35
motteryeah, and I found out why. If you leave the game entirely (xbox button -> start -> close) before the post war screen, the kill does not count for the achievement, although the statistic tells you, that you got 5 kills already ... anyway, got it just now :)
Posted by motter on 22 Oct 15 at 19:59
Shadow 00 FoxWow! Thanks finding that out, and glad you still got it!!

WithTheDawnIt didn't pop for me either, any way you can work out which tank it didn't count for?
Posted by WithTheDawn on 04 Mar 16 at 23:49
WithTheDawnAh don't worry, it randomly popped about half an hour later while watching tv...

Rocco96I already have 6 Japanese tanks with at least 5 kills each, but the achievement hasn't popped.
Posted by Rocco96 on 02 Apr 16 at 14:22
Shadow 00 FoxOh no... I know there were some achievement issues with another game, but could it be Tanks too?? Which tanks do you have the kills with?
Posted by Shadow 00 Fox on 02 Apr 16 at 16:46
Rocco96Today the achievement unlocked for me, while buying tanks from other nations.

Shadow 00 FoxEXCELLENT!!!! And weird...... blame it on Microsoft. laugh

OneShotMooflesI don't know if the logic behind this achievement changed at some point or what, but I am only getting 'progress' toward the achievement when I SELL a tank I have at least 5 destroys with. I had 2 tanks with 8 destroys, but no progress. I sold both, boom 40%.
Posted by OneShotMoofles on 14 Sep 17 at 22:19
Shadow 00 FoxThat's just downright weird.. although several achievements in this game have been weird. Can you resell the same tank more than once to get progress?
Posted by Shadow 00 Fox on 15 Sep 17 at 03:51
ArcticRaiderNo need to sell tanks for this to unlock. Play a battle with your last one and try to get a kill.

I was at 80% and I managed to push my Ke-Ni above 5 kills. No achievement.
Did a hard reboot. No achievement.
Played a battle with the Ke-Ni, got a kill. Achievement unlocked.

MacPawLenI can confirm that this achievement is not working.
I did kill 5 tanks with each of Japanese tanks and achievement doesn't work. I will try to destroy few more as user motter suggested. Hope it will help. Overall good solution - thx :)

Shadow 00 FoxMac, are you getting any progress on the xbox live achievements list?
Posted by Shadow 00 Fox on 03 Oct 17 at 16:29
MacPawLenok, I got it today. This achievement pops when I bought 5th Japanese tank and destroyed 4 enemies with it. This is strange, because Microsoft's achievement progress shows 60% before it pops up. There is definitely somethings wrong with this achievement ;)

LavindatharSo this achievement tracks? Mine is stuck at 0%
Posted by Lavindathar on 15 Mar 18 at 02:22
Shadow 00 FoxI heard of achievements problems lately, could be that, or simply this achievement being glitchy like for others. There are some comments about what worked in weird ways above that might help?

Fascist FishAs of Feb 13, 2019: I can confirm that the tracking is working. You don't have to stay the whole match, but it doesn't count on the WoT side till the match is over. Then it took about another 3-5 min till my achievement progress moved on the Xbox side. Maybe some odd delay between servers.
Mine went from 0-20% yesterday

zaingunsmanGoing on from Fascist Fish said I refreshed my Stats page on the WOT Console site to see if It helped at all and after I got 5 kills it would seems to make the progress come in a few minutes instead of a waiting a hour. It also might help you Que for a match after refreshing and quitting out before being placed.

matdanGot this by backing out of the queue screen and it counted the last match.
