The M10 RBFM Sirocco: A Vehicle with a Proud History     

The ultimate reward of the D-Day Challenge is the fabulous M10 RBFM, a French Premium Tier V tank destroyer with a historical custom look, Sirocco. This formidable TD became the symbol of the liberation of France and all Western Europe in August 1944.

 

 

Commanders!

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Allied landings in Normandy. This landmark event was one of the turning points of World War II and marked the opening of the Second Front in Western Europe.

To commemorate this time in history, we're launching a special event: the D-Day Challenge. It will last 14 days, from May 24 to June 6. Get ready for exciting missions and take this opportunity to earn a unique vehicle!

The D-Day Challenge:

24 May 2019, 10:00 CEST - 07 June 2019, 10:00 CEST (UTC+2)

The M10 RBFM was in service with the marines of the French Army. These tank destroyers actively participated in military operations after the Allied landings in Normandy.

During the liberation of Paris, the M10 RBFM  helped destroy a German "Panther" right on the Champs-Élysées, with a precise direct shot from a 2 km distance! During World War II, a special style called "Sirocco" was applied to the M10 RBFM. This style became an integral part of its formidable image, making it instantly recognizable to enemies.

Complete every mission of the Challenge and park this legendary vehicle in your Garage for free! We recreated the M10 RBFM down to the smallest detail, so it’s fully consistent with its historical prototype. This tank destroyer is a vivid reminder of one of the most important events in world history.

Battle Parameters

The M10 RBFM boasts great view range, complemented by a good camouflage value. It’s best played at a distance, using its camo values to stay concealed behind cover. The M10 RBFM has good concealment for its Tier, so take advantage of this to get closer to enemies and pinpoint their locations. 

 

 

How the Challenge Works

To get your hands on the M10 RBFM with the unique Sirocco style, you need to complete 14 consecutive missions.

  • Missions to be performed in historical vehicles*, so you can pay tribute as you complete them. Task conditions will be diverse, but in general these are simple, yet captivating.
  • Missions to be performed with any Tier VII-X vehicles. These missions are a bit more challenging, but completing them won’t be too difficult.

Yeah, I wish we could get Sprint missions like this.  Nice to see a mid tier French Premium that isn’t a Lefhhfhfh

Not sure what, but something about that image makes me think it's a scale model rather than in game image.

It's very nice but like all things from PC it'll never be what it truly is but rather we'll get the gimped version of it. However I am looking forward to seeing the vk 75.01k maybe by Christmas or the beginning of next year.

Would be so cool if we got this! Visited Normandy at the 70th anniversary, it was definitely a once in a lifetime experience, since I really don’t get to travel to Europe every other day. :teethhappy:

I’m still waiting wondering if console is going to remember “Memorial Day”, not including the 75th anniversary of D Day.

Hmm, I may have to look at playing PC again for a while until I take 3-6 months off again ;). Just have to see what the whole requirements are. I couldn't be bothered with those other Premium Tank Earn Ops on PC as they required a horrendous amount of time, basically meaning a full-time job for an average non Premium Time player.

Remember, it's just a game!

I expect a nerfed version to be ported over in the future.

Nice to see a Tier 5 French premium that isn't Arty.

It's a shame console is different™

Don't worry, the M10 RBFM Sirocco will be sold on console soon enough. ;)

We are not PC, but we sure do buy a lot of their free stuff.

Is PC getting are merc like with those spikes on the front?  Oh my!

 

Seriously, what are those?  Bent fenders?

 

Edit:  Ok seriously what are those?  I've googled the tank and the only one with those is the PC version--none of the real pictures I saw.  I'm sure they are for an attachment or some tool, but don't know.  Calling all Jocos and Betas...

I understand some tanks had "cutter blades" for hedgerows and vegetation.  That may be it......
When a man with a .45 meets a man with a rifle, you said, the man with a pistol's a dead man. Let's see if that's true. Go ahead, load up and shoot.

Ah!  That would certainly make sense for D-Day and France!
