Just earn 15,000 XP in any number of battles to receive garage slots.

 

That is really a nice gesture. Thx WG!

Agreed! Both this garage slots op and the 50x consumables op for 15k XP are awesome! Nice and easy with highly useable rewards!

Rare, question is will you have enough silver to fill those new slots with shiny new tier IX's and X's when they come. 15k xp is hardly a requirement even for potatoes. So WG decided to treat us with some garage space.. 4 slots? Why not 3 or 5?

 

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, M7

That's a very much doable OP for everyone, even for those with limited time to roll out. Thank you, WG!

+1 Great op idea!  I think my alt account might get some play time as it's always short on slots.  I'll be sure to let my daughter know as well.  She's in the same situation.

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

Thank you WG! These are nice ops and a good idea. They incentivise old and new players to check in frequently and give usable rewards for doing a little work. Thanks again!

LOL, I knew you're rolling in it, I just wanted you to say it loud. :teethhappy:

:D You know, the wild thing is that in the last year I have grinded out--and kept--the T30, E3, E4 and finished the Object 268. I also have them all fully equipped, and I still have all that silver. It has been, by far, my most productive year, WoT-wise.
