I briefly mentioned this in another thread, but after some further consideration I feel that this could actually make for an incredible line of tanks that would be very fun, unique (and console exclusive), and would even be historically accurate for the most part. The general theme of this line would be fast, tiny, and stealthy light tanks with guns that might deal a considerable amount of damage per shot/clip, but would have awful gun handling, slow shell velocities, and terrible DPM (along with very low hit points at each tier) to make up for that those advantages. So, to quickly go over the entire line:

 

Tier VI: The ELC AMX

 

Tier VII: The ELC EVEN 30

 

Tier VIII: The ELC EVEN 90

 

Tier IX: The ELC EVEN 120 Prototype

 

Tier X: The ELC EVEN 120

 

So, there's a quick summary of what I feel could be a great first console exclusive line. They would almost certainly be very fun tanks to play, would be incredibly unique, are historically accurate (for the most part), wouldn't require that much modeling (since most of them share the same hulls as existing tanks), and would as a whole be a great addition to the game. Of course, I'd love to hear all of your thoughts on this idea as well, so please to share your opinions on this concept for a new line. Thanks for reading, and happy tanking!

That would probably be the most fun line in the game!

I can imagine all the threads from Arty/Heavy/TD players moaning about them, it would be epic :)

Surely an elc tiger variant would need to be released.:P

There isn't a photo of the tier IX, and I noticed that for some reason the photo of the ELC EVEN 120 doesn't show up on mobile for me.

 

That said, here's another picture of the ELC EVEN 120 that should hopefully load for you:

Just so you're aware, those are recoiless rifles. If added they'd be the first recoiless rifles in the game.

True, although as far as gameplay goes I imagine that they would still work as other guns would (or WG could always add a bit of fiction and make them standard 120mm guns instead if Recoiless rifles really would cause an issue for gameplay).

They would have to end up having the lowest shell velocity and penetration of all tier 10 light tanks as well as really bad reload speeds compared to conventional cannons. But they're doable.

 

Edit: though they seem to be capable of firing HEAT capable of penetrating 300mm of RHA.

That actually works perfectly for the line in that case (the top part, not the edit), as those weaknesses balance out the very high clip potential the ELC EVEN 120 would have for a light tank.

Recoilless rifles are too low velocity to fire any sort of anti-tank ammunition other than HEAT. Basically they’d just act like derp guns. 

 

For example, the Vietnam era US 106mm M40 recoilless could fire both HEAT and HEP shells but only at around 500 meters per second velocity. The French 120mm would probably be similar.

Ammo types would maybe have to be HEAT/HEAT/HE or just skip prem ammo entirely.
