Happy to leave it on PC, unless they fancy giving us the 6-pdr version. I think we have bigger gaps in the British line - Tier VIII, hint, hint, Wargaming! :D

There is no 6 Pounder version. There are 2 Pounder, 17 Pounder and 25 Pounder versions.

You forget the Anti-British bias. They will give us the AC3 but nerfed to only have a 6 Pounder. :)


I hope to one day be wealthy enough to be considered eccentric rather than just plain nuts.

Haha, my apologies - a quick trip to the internets reveals I was thinking about the 17pdr! :D

I think it could hold its own against any tier VIII if they brought it in with either the 17 pounder gun or the 25 pounder!!

 

WG have previously brought British tanks out in the Soviet/Russian line, i.e. the Matilda & Churchill.  If WG can do this, why not bring in an Australian line up and introduce the Italian tanks, the AC1, AC3, & AC4, then finish off with the Centurian and finally the Leopard A1 as a Medium tank.

 

Now that would be a very interesting addition to the game as it would add some higher tier tanks to the British line-up!!

There is a 'World of Tanks' ad which promotes the "New Premium Australian AC4 Is Now Available"!!!

 

WG, Please, please, please, give it to us on Xbox!!  :)

There is so much wrong with that article. The AC-1 was designed well before Japan came into the war and was intended to equip Australian forces fighting overseas. Production facilities used to manufacture the tank existed prior to its design. The hull and turret were cast by Sydney firm Bradford Kendall Ltd, which had been formed in 1920. Leslie Bradford of Bradford Kendall was a world-renowned metallurgist who had worked for BHP at Port Pirie and Broken Hill. He later became Production Superintendent at the BHP Newcastle Steelworks. The tanks were assembled at the New South Wales Government Railways'  Chullora Railway Workshops, which had been building railway locomotives and rolling stock since the 1800s.  

 

Having said that I LOVE the AC-1. I started playing WOT Blitz in December 2015 when it was released. It is a battlefield monster when played correctly. I am so wishing it was on WOT Console.

I would imagine that "Japanese expansion into the Pacific" would just reference their general aggression during the 1930s, and their continued campaign in China.

We could do with this vehicle to 'stiffen up' the British line.

Point taken. Australia's industrial buildup during the 1930s was based on real fears about Japanese expansion, however the Sentinel was originally conceived to fight the Germans and Italians, not the Japanese.
