I have 3 TT tanks to kill and one of them is Czech tier I tank, Kolohousenka. I'm not going there that much, but tried couple of times at tier I and II and haven't seen a single one. Now we have On-track for Czech tanks, I really hope there will be some people playing Czech TT from the tier I, so I can get my K-housenka frag.

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.).

I have the tier 8 Czech tank, the first good tank in the line until now, and I'm going to buy the tier 9, today. Good on-track for you.

Good luck.  I know how rough that can be.  My last one is the French tier 2 Renault R35.  You never see them on the field.  I even purchased one, in the hopes that if there's one in matchmaking it'll balance us out and put us in the same match on opposite teams.  They need to have another French on-track event, so I can finally knock out one of those.  :great:

I regularly play the Mikromaus (excellent crew trainer!), and I eventually got the Kolohousenka. Now only a couple of Mercenaries and a few rare premiums remain on my to-do list.

Do you think having one increases your chances of meeting it in battle? Cause I would buy one instantly, I'm that desperate ..:teethhappy:

Just bought tier VII with that silver from RB (thx WG! :great:).

I'm not sure which tank to pursue with that 20 first wins bonus Op. If I go with Czech, combined with 25% bonus and other Ops it should go pretty easy. But, I'm not that excited about tier VIII...TVP right?

Yeah, I got one too and I know it's great, but honestly I rarely play mine. I might rebuy Kolohousenka and try it again.

I'm not sure, but I made a couple of my Tier 2 premiums that only see up to Tier 3 as "favorites" in hopes of increasing the chance of seeing only the same Tier the R35 sees to help narrow it down a bit.  I even switched to the Europe server when I play them, in hopes that maybe the Frenchies are playing some of their own tanks, but no luck.  It's because of the Master Tanker ribbon that I now have a permanent Tier 1 tank in my garage (T22 Proto, of course), for when they add new national tech tree lines, so I can farm the new Tier 1 and 2 tanks for the ribbon again.  The things gamers do for some digital bling.  :medal:

I need to kill a K-holo as well.   I play once a day in my K-holo just looking for another to kill.   Maybe one day we will run into each other.

Please tell me when you're on, we will arrange it and we can run at each other, perhaps make it like simultanious kill for both of us.

I usually jump on around 9pm East Coast time on weeknights.  If I see you I will run right at you.

Last night I finally finished my Czech Master Tanker badge after many months of trying.  More people are playing the Kola now with the on-track.   Good luck on getting your kill.

It took about 3 games to get it.  There was a red K-Holo in every game so I felt positive it would happen.  You will get yours tonight.

And it was exactly as you said! And it was a game on Province and teams were 3v3 :teethhappy: So, I was there with my own K-ho and reds had one too. I've had to yolo to get it before other two guys could waste it.

Now I have two more to go, Foch 50 155 and Chinese TD tier 9 iirc.

Good luck to you and bon chance! :honoring:
