Halloween is just around the corner, and there have been two new monster tanks announced. Still, we have some countries lacking their own monster tank, so let's think up some ideas for a British, Czech, French or Swedish monster tanks. If something doesn't fit to one country, a monster mercenary tank is fine too!

 

Great Britain

Sadly, the idea of a Banshee tank has already been used (that's the first monster from the Isles I thought of), so we have to take something else. My idea would be a Tier V Crusader "Will-o'-the-Wisp" (or perhaps another Cromwell) based on the mysterious swamp light, or a Morrigan tank (a raven woman from Irish folklore) in a raven themed Caernavon or a Black Knight, which would fit for a Tier VII Black Prince.

 

France

As for France, I thought of the Beast of Gevaudan (the tank simply named Gevaudan), an AMX 1375 or a Tier VII heavy tank. Another idea I had was the Gargoyle / gargouille, a greyish tank with stone-like skin and horns, which could fit for a heavy tank. Other monsters that I think could work for a tank skin are L'Ankou, Gargantua/Pantagruel and possibly Tarasque (a French dragon).

 

Czechoslovakia

Sadly, the only ideas I had would be an Imp or Vodnik (a water creature) that could fit for a low-tier Czech tank. Naturally, the Golem of Prague also comes to mind. A vampire-themed tank would also be a good idea, even though Czechoslovakia only partly borders to Transylvania.

 

Sweden

If you pick monsters or a monster-like creature from Nordic mythology, you end up first with the Troll (a tank name which would make up some hilarious jokes and puns), but also the Lindworm (which is also a German mystical creature), which I could see as an Emil I.

 

Other ideas

Frankenstein tank - we had a similar idea from WOT PC 2017 where there have been two tanks (Franken / Stein) for a specific game mode, but as a classic monster and halloween creature it should be a must-include. As this tank could be made of parts from different tanks, the mercenary line would be interesting for that.

 

The Mummy - another classic monster everybody could recognize, I didn't come up with a tank nation as this could fit for France, UK or USA

 

Jekyll/Hyde - to have the classic movie monsters together, we need this one, which could show a tank with one half looking normal and the other looking hideous/monster-like.

 

Jack'o'Lantern - an orange/black tank with the classic pumpkin motif

Woah these are nice :D

 

Maybe for next year.  The Monster tanks for this year have been planned for months now :)

I'm not creative but i would love to see a Reskinned UDES or a Strv S1 or some form of Tank Destroyer. AMX CDA 105 could be a good one.

How about camouflages that also change the skin? Maybe only purchaseable on special days but usable all the time if bought once.

I would love to have a WT auf E100 looking like this:

I want people to understand because I want to understand as well.

Yes, I am the one guy with a different opinion.

Don't believe my battle count. It is missing 12355 battles on PC(and not a single one will ever be added to that number again) and 852 battles on mobile.

How about this it's "historical (80s), a tank (toilet tank), and a monster". I think it meets the criteria and its as fantasy oriented as Mercs. That and who wouldn't want to drive around in a toilet slinging poo at potatoes?

Had that toilet as part of my Ghostbusters action figure collection as a kid!!

 

Have none of them now...no idea where they went...in typical fatherly fashion my best assumption is the old man up and threw them all in the trash when I was older.

Yea, young me like an idiot decided to give my GI-Joes explosives (fireworks) and after that war ended I think I moved on to other toys. Needless to say I don't have any of my childhood action figures anymore. I remember I had all the GI-joes, Ghostbusters, and Turtles. Just sucks I didn't hold onto them.

A Cromwell with some kind of tail would be very cool, though I have no idea how that would work out in terms of mechanics. Maybe it gets damaged if someone drives over the tail?

I would say the vampire tank would be better suited as a U.K. tank given that the original Dracula novel was about Dracula moving from Transylvania to England in the search for fresh blood. Also Bram Stoker was Irish and the U.K. is the closest we have to an Irish tree.

Perhaps at the least a dual trainer? Czech tank which trains both Czech and U.K. crews

Some more Swedish ideas (for tank names at least) Fenrir, Jörmungandr,
Grendel (from the English poem Beowulf, so again perhaps a dual trainer)
(I have no idea for actual tanks but at least there’s names that could be used)
:)

Edit: Korbendallas ninja’s the grendel suggestion :)


Pssst. I know who you are. Hail Sithis

Blitz has a Frankenstein tank, a Dracula tank, and a van helsing tank with a double barrel cannon. Maybe start there as they're all really nice tanks

Oooh!!!! Goody!!! Here goes....

 

obvious choice is the Bizon/T-103 or KV-4K done up with some horns and glowing ooze and could be called Bahamut or Leviathan! A little nod to some ancient Lovecraftian Elder Gods.

 

We also need a Chupacabra inspired Monster Tank!! Maybe we could base it on the unreleased ELC Even 90!

Doesn't take much to balance a tank all they'd have to do is change the gun stats to be closer to the average for it's tier the barrel is just a cosmetic thing stats can be altered

The Chthulu tank was already requested and I think it is a great idea :D  We need a Cat-thulu! LOL
