Looking closely at this again. Is that the tier VI (Strv m/42-57)next to the Strv S1 flag tank?? Will they be released concurrently??

 

That was exactly my thoughts, i think they will release em together.  Theres so much hype about this nation hitting console they would be silly not to cause theres a crap ton of us gold no9bs who would pick up both!

First of all, Raiboot is a girl and I must say very cute one!;)

Second, this is great news and great tank, I can't wait to have swedish TT and start researching it..

The colours are not my favorite though...Especially gun colored in yellow reminds me of something vulgar, can't say it here, but someone mentioned banana (huge banana)...


The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

3 MoE tanks: T-34, Pz IVH, Tiger I, Pz.Kpfw. T 25

Could you please next time post a link to your Twitter?

 

Could WG please create less "flag" tanks and more tank-looking tanks?

Maybe try to put just a little effort into the reskin that your forcing down everyones throat. Let greyweasel UK make the livery for it since you don't want to.

 

Better yet sell it along side with the better looking stock version.

 

Better still, update the game to something that resembles WoT in 2017. The hype for new updates is replaced with frustrations and anguish when it rolls to console a year later.

Pretty sure it's based on an actual tank painted like that, I'm sure someone can share a photo.

Lol, both Larsson and Ibrahimovic are naturalized Swedes...or maybe I'm wrong, maybe their parents are naturalized Swedes...

I know for sure that Ibrahimovic's father is from Bosnia and his mother is Croatian...he is born in Sweden though...not sure about Larsson, but I believe he is second (or even third) generation of immigrants and also born in Sweden...

Correction, Larsson's mother is Swedish and father is from Cape Verde..

Nope.

His mom is swedish (native, or whatever you'd like to call it), and his father is from Kap Verde.

Ok I'm trying my best not to rage or swear but this is once again this awful and idiotic WG tactic of say something stupid and not saying anything.

Like I  posted before you guys post this kind of info with a timeline or you don't say anything at all. But stop this " SoonTM" nonsense.

Looks like a door stop on treads.  Glad we're finally getting some Swedish tanks.  Just wish the Hero Flag tank wasn't a tank destroyer.
