Other than new dmg counter, which is great addition, I think German camo is one of the best looking in game atm. I remember Max asking here on forum about camo suggestions, and some of suggestions were Post-War camo patterns.

 

In this 4.7 Update, WG has refreshed German camo and added several new patterns, most of them Post-War.

 

They look awesome, job well done devs! :great:


 

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, T-50

I like seeing how they did what Warships had in that manner by adding in damage dealt and blocked

I liked them so much I bought permanent new camo on my E-50 Ausf.M and it looks awesome.

I haven’t had a chance to see the new Camo yet

In the past week, I took advantage of the discounted permanent Camo that’s on offer, without knowing some “new” patterns were coming out!

 

Anyone think that WG will let me swap out a Camo that I paid “real money” for one of the new styles?

 

There seems to be so little info coming out of the portal and when it does, it’s worded ambiguously or plain wrong!

 

Luckily Mashman, was able to give us a heads up on the changes to the Soviet Line, so that we could plan ahead!

Great... just camoed up my V/IV in seal clubber camo a couple days ago, and it already got power creeped :( And my E100 too. :(

I just used over 7k gold to change my German tanks using those new camos, few of those were really nice looking

So, WG promote 50% off camouflage and emblems, then a week or two later they bring out a new set of better looking Camo for the Germans?

 

Hate to sound ungrateful, but if WG had told us these camos were on the way, I would’ve bought temporary ones with silver and waited until I checked out the new ones, BEFORE paying gold!

 

Left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing, or just plain sneaky???

I agree.  I want some of these for other nations.  I had just spent about 8k gold for camo and now I will spend a bit more to put some on my favorite tanks.  Good thing camo is still on sale until November 2nd.

This will be their way out!

They will say you are getting a 50% discount, so what’s the problem?

But it’s NOT a discount if I change it again to one of the new camos.

If WG allowed a swap to the new camos for any permanent German Camo that was applied during the discount period, I’d be very happy,

 

WG???

Definitely one of the better things about the update and gives those of us who don't care for Soviet tanks something at least.

I can understand your frustration if you just in this last sale bought camo.  All my germans were previously camo'd a while ago.  You should PM RaiBOT01 if you want to see if there is something they can do.  I doubt they will as generally camo is unrefundable, but they may allow a switch if you just bought camo.

They are interesting but since most of my german keepers have already been camo'd I won't change them.

I think that if you perm camo you should have access to all colour schemes in that category permanently

Your first mistake was paying gold for perma camo or any kind of customization. Absolute waste, If you own premium time or premium tanks at all just 30 day it and you can make back the silver in a few matches then if you ever decide you want to change the camo you just switch when it runs out and you're not out any gold at all. But the WG thing is just a typical sneak. they've done that multiple times throughout the years, selling somthing discounted without releasing info on upcoming things (to rack up sales) then releasing something all those people would have purchased instead a week or two later. Its a cash grab scheme is all.

No, they were a part of 4.7 and camo sale was still on at that time.

They look  great but now my tiger looks so out of place.

 

Twitch camo for winter, New patern for sumer and city, flat for desert. Im surprised they didnt add the new digital camo. I can see a digital camo sherman now.


“Greatness is a transitory experience. It is never consistent. It depends in part upon the myth-making imagination of humankind. The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him. And he must have a strong sense of the sardonic. This is what uncouples him from belief in his own pretensions. The sardonic is all that permits him to move within himself. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man.”
