Hello all,

 

With the impending release of the RAAC Mk5 Centurion to the game I'd like to see a Special Crew introduced with it to commemorate an RAAC Troop Commander who served in the Vietnam War, Lieutenant Adrian Roberts.

 

Lt Roberts commanded 3 Troop, 1APC Sqdn at the battle of Long Tan in Vietnam.  Though not technically a Tank commander, his actions with his troop of M113's was incredible and show's the Aussie spirit of mateship!

 

Lt Roberts disobeyed orders and led his troop through the Viet Cong lines to support and rescue the troops of D Company 6RAR, who were hopelessly pinned down and surrounded.

 

Lt Roberts was recently a special guest at a prescreening of a new movie, Danger Close, which tells the story of this heroic effort.

 

If WGCB could introduce a special Crew to commemorate Lt Roberts I think it would be a very nice gesture given he hasn't much time left and would encourage people to remember what he did.

 

Lt Roberts Special Skill:

"She'll Be Right" (F*#! Orders!)

20% increase to bouncing incoming rounds while moving.

Great story. Wish tou’d spent more time thinking over the xrew skill.... as if you know mechanics of the game this suggestion would not be an option

Have a special premium tank and you get that 20% increase in bounces when people shoot you 20% more than normal tech tree tank. 

 

I think Games are not right place to honor real life heroes. They would hate to see some crew or tank in their name driven by a troll or team killer.  These ream life heroes work only when time and history has made them famose like Napolean, Ceasar, Chuck Norris and other historic figures. :harp:

I can understand where you're coming from but we already have the Controlled Impact skill which reduces damage taken from collisions.  Why not modify this skill to enable a greater chance of deflecting fire whilst mobile.

 

It would be a specialist skill only available with that crew similar to Iron Mace, Snakebite, etc!!

Normally I would agree about not portraying heroes in games, however Wargaming & WGCB has a history of showing respect to actual combat veterans and heroes in their games.

 

Two key standouts in WoT Console are the T34 Fighting Girlfriend (which highlighted the heroic's of this tank commander), and the recent Sherman Thunderbolt which was commanded by Capt Abrahm's.

Mariya Oktyabrskaya died while she repaired her T-34's tracks in under heavy fire, she was a real hero. What would she think if she sees her name and tank in a video game and hears that her tank is not worth of the money that WG is asking from it. :sceptic:

Given the Commander is Aussie, the skill would be limited to only being used on British Tanks!

I quite like the idea of a Special Aussie crew -- perhaps a special skill that lowers terrain resistances, given his heroics involved the quick ingress and egress from a target?

Hey Mate, I actually like that idea quite a bit!!

 

Maybe give it a 30% increase to acceleration from stationary as well?

 

Now to get RaiBOT and Max's attention.

So, does anyone else have a better idea for a unique Aussie skill?
