I have to admit this op was fun and engaging. It's pretty easy to accomplish all three parts and walk away with 620,000 silver for your troubles. Great op, WG. But, with nine days left to complete the op, I wish there had been a part IV.

Agreed.  They need more big silver ops.

You'd be wrong.

It's been a three-part op for the two years I can remember them doing it.

Yeah, like there should be Turkey shoot part IV for 1.000.000 silver and 200 kills required...followed by Turkey shoot part V for 3.000.000 silver and 400 kills req...

followed by Turkey shoot part VI where you are required to shoot at least one live turkey...and the reward would be turkey itself...:)


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.).

Happens every year.  I agree.  It should be unending.  Just double it every time.  TS IV would need 200 kills.  TS V would need 400 kills.  It would get rather ridiculous pretty quick.

 

To even things up, after TS III, start eliminating a tier.  So for TS IV only tier IV and up count.  For TS V, only V and up count.  Etc.

Completed all three parts, and the payout was nice. Next time around it would be nice, though, if it could be one of the golden Ops at the top instead of taking up one of the three active Op slots you can use. Between Turkey Shoot and the Swedish Crew earning Op (both of which require leaving them active for long periods of time) You really only get one active Op. And if you are playing one of the three On Tracks that's your third. Not really a complaint (as the other Ops were generally kinda lackluster anyway), more of a suggestion for the future.

So which tank would be the “turkey” you would receive. My guess would be a T-28 honor with a speed/armor/gun aim time nerf?????

Just give away the Vindicator.

Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Not sure doubling it would be practical. Like you said, it'd get pretty ridiculous pretty quickly. WG might find it more appealing to either make the last link of the chain repeatable, or increasing the kill count without increasing the silver payout. Even for 200 kills, 500k silver is a pretty nice reward. Or increase the count by 50 each time, or 100 each time rather than doubling it.

I'm actually glad its a three-parter. It has been arty-he|| on the EU server.

No. Pz. II J would be the turkey tank since they nerfed it so badly.

But that tank was already given away for free.  To be a real turkey, it should be a tank that they previously charged a stupidly high amount of money for despite it being useless at its tier.

Not last year, but recently we had a 5 part op that was very similar. I'm not sure if this is the exact one I'm thinking of, but German Victory Lap had 5 parts.
