It’s simple - you just have to be super unicum and capable to mark with 3 MoE the corresponding tanks i.e. to be better than 95% of the players. So if you’re one of these 5% - it’s easy... otherwise - you know. ;)

I actually disagree. In the Sheridan, I average High Calibers at about the same rate as my mediums and heavies, very slightly lower. My point being that if you play the Sheridan smartly, anyone can get high calibers as easily as they do in mediums and heavies. If you have trouble in the American light tanks, you probably also have trouble with mediums and heavies and there’s not much that can be done for you

Did David Boreanaz pose for the crew?

 

That does so not look like David Boreanaz, especially the eyes, not to mention the „slimmer“ face. Looks more like out of some Italian B/C action movie.

The commander sounds like a bad guy from an Indiana Jones movie. Just finished the contract grind today, no gold.

You must have played a lot per diem, or you had many of the compatible tanks, possibly both?

 

I have just started my seventh stage yesterday.

 

But I don't want to go too fast; it is a good motivator.

 

Now that you have it, was it what you were expecting?

Almost at level 9, it’s an xp grind from there. Hit a ton of tanks to play to do it though so Ian probably going to get The Machine without even noticing the contract!
Miss playing the deathstar and jageroo but...

Just rolled into stage 8.  Getting a lot of quality bat chat time in to keep kill on par with Xp.

Batchat baby batchat, T50/51, conqueror is good too along with Amx 50B plus the 50/120. Autoloader late game equals lots of kills!!!

At 250,000 on the last stage; should have it this week.  I gotta say I think they did a good job on this contract.  I didn't feel like smashing my Xbox of uninstalling at any point.  Well done!

Been grinding the 50B line alongside the contract. Got into the AMX 120 at stage 6 and am getting close to having the XP for a Lorain - working on maxing out the tier 9/10 for the last two stages.

 

also working on my patience with the French autoloaders,  Hanging back / sniping early game and ambushing late seems to work the best.

Yeah, I did play a lot. Mostly getting my 15 x2s off of my compatible tanks. Is it what I expected? Not exactly. The combination of the 50B hull and Chieftain turret is not as tough as I expected. The Chieftain turret especially gets picked apart by HEAT. It's less in a probably in the actually Chieftain because it makes more sense to play that tank less aggressively. Also I've never played the TVP, and that gun proved to be pretty anemic on a heavy tank. But it is even faster than I thought. The Machine is definitely a support medium, not a heavy.

I earned mine yesterday just doing x2s every day. Everybody expected it to be this to be a monsterous tank but it is different. In the handful of games I have so far, it seems pretty good. The gun both limits and defines the tank. With a standard 120mm gun, it would be a much better tank. The Chieftan turret gives the tank the ability to expose itself for extended amounts of time to get a clip off, but the clip is the fastest in the game.The aimtime is bad compared to the dispersion interclip (I have GLD, Vents, Stab, food, and all of the gun perks and I'm not fully aimed in by the time the next shot is ready) and the pen is lacking, especially with the so-so accuracy. The armor doesn't hold up well to poking and prolonged engagements but hull down and rushing an enemy, it is fantastic. It has ridiculous speed, outpacing almost all medium tanks on flat ground, but in a medium tank role, it has poor view range and camo plus mediocre DPM. It is definitely a good tank but it is a bit of a misfit. Good speed but poor spotting ability. Good armor and hull down ability, but a gun that doesn't take advantage of it. As a comp tank, it's role is still being fleshed out but I think it will eventually become a staple on certain maps due to its ability to trade favorably against Batchats plus mobility.

Thanks to all those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

We appreciate all you've done.:honoring:

 

Glad to have American sale on tt tanks.

I'll wait for sales on French, British and Russian...

Try the baby batchat, it’s my favourite one of the lot. I find I over extend in the 50 B and the 50 120. Batchat is killa but I like the t9 better

Roger that!

 

The B/C AP is a lot better than its bigger brother, in all compartments of the game. And I have only four skills on mine. I can only imagine what it would be if I had the vision enhancing perks and gun stabilization, plus the stealth and driving helps...

 

Just fresh of my Stage 8 as I type; I am going to take a break before I get into 9 and 10...

Dang, Stage 5 is the one I was thinking I'd need to buy-out.  76.8k xp & a fire in just my AMX 13 57 will be brutal. :(

 

I got it in my 2nd battle, which happened to be the 57.  :)  In general, i do hate fires being a stage requirement.

When I got this mission the first match in my Spyglass took care of the fire prerequisite. Rest was easy with this, plus AMX 13 57, AMX Chaffee and Vanguard.

I do run the baby bat and like it, but have better stats on the tier X.  

Got the Lorraine during the grind.  Might like it better in it than with Bat Chat as so far (30 games or so), I’ve been killing it in the Lorraine.
