As I look at the current earn op and store specials I see a plain vk45.03. No adler paint thus not an Adler but a deskinned premium. But I see the "ripper" paint scheme on the M46 Patton KR. Not a deskinned premium and thus the same tank as was released some months ago. Am I correct?

They’ve never released a deskined Patton so I would assume it would indeed be the kr

It is just bad communication by WG. The prize "Adler" is just a plain VK, not the special paint job version. Personally I'm not bothered by it and that is the tank I chose to go for, but WG should stop calling it the Adler.

 

The Ripper has an unskinned cousin, and they don't call it the Ripper. Ditto the Bogatyr, it's unskinned cousin is not referred to as Bogatyr either. Not sure what the deal is on this, but it's pretty common for WG to get this type of thing wrong.

 

PS- you have to play tier five and above for the earn op, and they forgot to add that detail on the OP's tab where you choose your prize and fight a battle to get started.

Not sure what your asking. The two tanks are the M46 Patton KR and the VK 45.03.

I currently own the Adler vk45.03 and the Ripper patton. From the store images the 45.03 appears to be lacking adler paint. Thus it looks like  a "deskin" and a seperate tank from the adler. The Patton KR appears to have the Ripper paint and seems to be the same tank as was previously sold and not a "deskin" Is this correct or not? Often WG releases nonskinned versions of premiums but with very similar names (hmh tanks, Skorpion/Skorpion, etc)

Don't know what you mean. They never said you could earn the Adler, it always was the VK45.03, which the Alder is based on.

Remember, it's just a game!

I reread my original post. I think I was very clear. I laid out what I believe I observed and simply ...no VERY simply...asked "Am I correct"  A simple "no" followed by an explanation of my mistake or even simpler, "yes you are correct" is really all i'm asking for.

The Patton KR is the Patton KR. As advertised.

Max already wrote what it is. Why is that so hard to understand?

Edit: If you read my previous post carefully, I was answering LiteralComic's post. They misread the Earn Op or don't understand that different designations or names make a difference.

The Ripper is a SHERMAN tank,  Patton is entirely different tank.  This one just has a similar paint to the Ripper

I might confused thread chatter, often referring to the prize VK as Adler when it is not, same tank but deskinned. It's odd that they didn't offer both prizes as deskinned, or the fancy skins, and I'm guessing that is the confusion from the OP.

 

I chose the deskinned VK, doesn't matter to me, but it's a little bit odd that they did the prize tanks this way, with the same requirements and assorted additional items. It is what it is but still odd.

The Patton KR has a list price of 8700 Gold. The Adler 8860, the VK45.03 6800, which is noticeably lower. Especially when you consider the grind is the same.

I wouldn't be surprised if whoever at WGC made the Earn Op got them confused too and it was too late when they noticed it ;)

Thus it is referred to as the ripper patton. And I think was in WG ads when the 46 patton kr  came out the first time

I think people get confused because there are actually two Ripper tanks in-game; the M4A2E4 Sherman Ripper and the M46 Patton Korean Ripper (KR).  Both are painted with the "Tiger Face" paint jobs given to American tanks that took part in Operation Ripper during the Korean War.  The Sherman Ripper tanks were something the console Dev's threw together, because they didn't have the PC version M46 Patton Ripper tanks, yet.  So, they're actually a console exclusive.  I don't think we got the PC version M46 Rippers until a year or so later.  Even though both the M4 and M46 have the Ripper paint jobs, only the M46's counts as permanent camo.  You still have to go into the Customization and add camouflage to the M4 version in order to have the added "vehicle Camo stat."

 

To answer Pepelefrogg's question, yes this is the same M46 Patton KR tank that's already been out for a while.  The VK 45.03 is just the basic skinned version that we can put whatever camo we want on it.  They accidentally had it up on the Tankopedia for a while back in February, after an update, but ended up taking it down.  So, this is the first time that the basic skinned version of the VK 45.03 has been offered.  Other than the permanent camo, it has the exact same stats as the Adler version of the VK 45.03.

 

Hope that helps.

that was much better and did help. I thought it strange that they sold a plain 45.03 and not some plain version of a premium 46 Patton even though that would technically be a stock(ish) 46 Patton. What got me frustrated was what seemed like an easy question got turned into something complicated. Oy. Glad that's over. Somebody please take this stupid thread down

Adler VK45.03 is a special camouflage skined version and VK45.03 is a non-skin version. Like Skorpion G and Skorpion, HMH Chrysler K and Chrysler K. Surely skined M46 Patton KR has brother tank "DeathStalker", reskin of reskin tank though, it has no non-skin tank at all because original non-skin tank is normal tech-tree M26 Pershing.They can sell regular tech-tree tank as premium tank even they WG want. :teethhappy:
