I forgot to mention that particularly objectionable units associated with organizations guilty of committing crimes against humanity like anything SS should be excluded.

 

I am as appalled as the next person by crimes against humanity committed during all wars and specially WWII. But emblems are just emblems.  The SS and Nazi symbols were a part of history regardless.  You cannot erase history just by denying an emblems existence or availability.  If that were the case emblems like the one below should also be banned (although it would be applicable in World of Warplanes not WOT, ha ha ha!).  Besides what are you going to put on the infamous Tiger tank? a football logo (Sorry Hammer)?

Nazi Symbols and the SS symbols are also illegal under the laws of several European Countries.

I would love a little Woolly Mammoth on my Tiger.

 

 


 

Leave the swastika, SS, and Hammer and Sickle off and just put the regular army unit symbols.

Nice Job, you just gave them ideas for about 10 new "premium tanks."

A single Defiant Act can change the outcome

How about Michael Wittmanns red 212 for the Tiger tanks? (Maho Nishizumi's Tiger I tank from "Girls und Panzer" has it as a reference too).

I guess asking für SS-Panzerdivision insignia is a bit much (like the key Symbol the Tiger I had in "Kelly's Heroes" ) though.

The British army had a number of badges to and markings on my tank, I'm not sure how much of a pain it would be to include so many or give gamers the chance to custom there own tanks. As many crews did in world war 2, I would love the chance to plaster my clubs badge on the turret just to confuse the many yanks I encounter.:trollface:

How about the Guards divisions for the Soviet army? The turret insignia would replace the red star with this:

 

And you could have the inscription added: Za Chest Gvardiya (In Cyrillic, obviously) which means 'for the honour of the guards'.

I would also like to see the early French unit markings... the heart, club, spade, and diamond color coded for platoon.  Agree with the British markings previously mentioned.  I can see the hesitation on the WW2 German markings, since some are banned.  I would love to see the white stahlhelm of the GD!

Hello,

 

I would like to suggest an emblem “Pahonia”

Like emblem, it was used from the ancient time till present in states Belarus, Poland, Ukraine, Lithuanians like state a herb,in their politic/social live.

 

It was used for the Lithuanian tank division as main sign during 1918-1940 period.

Ooooh just stumbled upon this post. Since I served with the 1st Infantry Division (mechanized), how about a Big Red One emblem?

Oddly enough, the emblem of 1st Czechoslovak Independent Armoured Brigade Group is already in the game.

I like the idea, but if you're gonna be historic you can't be 'politically correct'. My point is, give me the different SS emblems too. Then, add an option to disable custom emblems on other people's vehicles, so the real snowflakes among us can stay happy in their safezone. I wouldn't give a [edited]if i saw someone driving around with any kind of emblem belonging to a 'criminal organisation', but as always some people have to ruin it by taking offence. Hence the option to hide customized emblems, wich would be on by default,and can be turned off at any given moment. The main reason i rarely put them emblems on is because they are fake, and i'd be more than happy to fork over some gold for a swastika on my german tanks.

Its not being politically correct. Displaying the Swastika in any form is illegal in at least two european countries. Rather than have to write a whole block of code to remove it from those players affected its far simpler to not display it at all.

I have to agree with widowmaker1711, German tanks are not historical accurate without a swastika ... this is why history will repeat itself because political correctness gone mad, it's a symbol, just a symbol ... shells and gas might break my bones but symbols will never hurt me ... :) it's never gonna happen in game but swastikas don't make Nazis ... Hitler's do!
