Just came back from Saumur France's world's biggest tank museum. It must be the biggest in the entire multiverse.


First I must say I touched with my bare hands the Zimmerit and steel on the last functional Panzerkampfwagen VI Königstiger in the world. https://drive.google...2iIx806hiTmqBu8


Behind a glass I found this model tagged Panzer VI Tiger. https://drive.google...aNFtxDi6-lUBmC3


Amazing design rear turreted. But I'm not sure about the tag. Does an historically ACcuRaTE fan can hint us on the correct model ?


Also got amazed by a few tanks with history :


An Iraki captured T62 from... french Daguet operation ? Exposed in battle configuration with those black lights https://drive.google...YL8b55g8z-JYBDZ


German TD, captured and recycled by the french or british army during the end of the war. Got a few shell hits on its side and got repaired to be used afterwards. The cracks are impressive https://drive.google...yYAlFGSOYE0V0Ko


And at the children section they planted an ELC EVEN the version with two smaller caliber guns, and you can install your kids in the driver's seat.


WG please add faster the Croix de Lorraine Captured Panther exposed at Saumur to the console TT. I would pay real money to own some pixels of this beautiful piece of history. https://drive.google...52VFuW8I_-_1P9W

Thank you for sharing this.  Agree, the captured panther would be a nice addition to the game based on the real tank.

ELC EVEN 30 with those two 30mm autocannons would be fun scout and light hunter. Current ELC EVEN 90 has too slow reload to fight against other light tanks efficienly.

The TD is a Jagdpanzer IV/70 (A) built by Alkett, an interim design I would like to see ingame.

Definitely in my list of go to places, so good to hear you enjoyed it. The Bretagne panther as it is on PC was at tankfest this year and it sounded absolutely fantastic, especially the popping of unburnt fuel from the exhausts as it moved menacingly around the display area
