I think KRAUT oder Kraut would be a great addition to the German inscriptions?!

There are some solid inscriptions which are not country specific and limited to certain nations - make all of them except country specific available for every tank.

A couple holidays ago we got some Christmas emblems and one of them was a nutcracker, which is awesome. I would love to have a "Nutcracker" inscription to go with my nutcracker emblem. I hope Raibot is still reading this thread.

British Inscription Ideas:

 

'Slow Death'

'The Inevitable'

 

I would also love to see name inscriptions from folk heroes, like:

 

'Robin Hood'

'Little John'

'William Wallace'

How about "Speed Kills" ? For light tanks of course.

 

Also "Wanker" or " You Wanker" SP?

I know that Wargaming doesn't want to use profanity in their game, to keep it family friendly (ish), but a lot of tanks had inscriptions that used profanity in actual war. Why couldn't we have censored versions of those? For example:

 

**** The Wehrmacht

You're ******

Surprise Mother******

**** For Brains

Jesus is my *****

etc.

 

Anyone who knows the English language will know what the censored parts mean, but there won't be any 'official' indication of what the word is supposed to be, which covers your as...butt. Just an idea.

Remove the stroke from letters, it's ugly, and let us choose the colors of those, just like you did for the base flag color.

And let us have a full 1 to 99 Numbers in a customisation friendly update.

 

Some French suggestions:

 

"Par Saint Georges" (The French cavalry'smotto since the crusades, and still in use today)

"Le Professionnel"

"Avant Garde"

"Le spectre"

"L'exécuteur"

"Le Faucheur"

"Œil de Faucon"

"Carré d'As"

"Saboteur"

"Le Croque-Mort"

"Tiger Hunter"

 

That inscription already exists on the Russian tanks, "Dlya razgroma Tigrov", or 'for the destruction of tigers'. There's also "Zveroboi", which actually translates as 'beast killer', rather than 'hunter' as WG suggests.

Turret Numbers - German EX: 323

 

As a continuation of turret numbers/admin numbers that were recently added, I suggest more options for these according to nation. For example, German inscriptions could include a selection of 3 digit numbers ranging from 110-135, 210-235, and 310-335. Perhaps they could also add an assortment of numbers in different color schemes that were commonly used shortly prior and after the 1944 directive. (Standardization of German turret numbers.) ATTN WG: Ideally, I would recommend the ability to type in our own numbers and select a color scheme. Perhaps this can be part of the broader custom inscription system that is being considered.

 

To the majority of those who understandably have no idea why I suggested specific number ranges, here is the explanation:

The three digit numbers often seen in pictures of various German tanks are used for the identification and organization of vehicles within a unit. A typical Panzer battalion (Panzerabteilung) consisted of 3 companies, each with 3 platoons consisting of ~5 tanks. The three digit number would represent a vehicles position within this structure. The 1st digit represents the company, the 2nd represents the platoon, and the 3rd represents the tanks number within it's platoon. For example, 321 would indicate a tank in 3rd company, 2nd platoon, 1st tank. The number 1 also suggests the platoon leader, as it was common practice to label the leader's tank with the first number out five. It is important to note however that exceptions were common. This is the case because units would occasionally make their own systems to avoid allowing the enemy to identify their unit structure or target officers. This resulted in numbers outside of my ranges, as can be seen in the examples.

 

For more information about turret numbers, consider This Article I found posted on here earlier today. (Image is also sourced from here)

Is it possible to get more numbers available for the German tanks? Also is it possible to be able to put an inscription on the back of the turret on the Tiger tank like they actually had in real life

Second that, also make the tanks National Insignias available on any nations tank

 

Some extra spaces on the tanks for each would be nice, such as being able to put an insignia on the hull, or being able to have numbers on the turret as well as an inscription.

A german tank not named „Lola“ is meaningless (Marlene Dietrich, „The Blue Angel“;). Could also work for US tanks,Dietrich performed for allied troops.

 

Isn‘t a foto of her pinned inside the Rhm. Skorpion‘s turret?
