There are 3 tanks that I'd personally like to see brought into the game, and I think all 3 would be welcome additions.

 

1.  Scimitar - British Recon Tank 

 

This tank has served the Brits, and NZ, for decades and would be a very useful passive/active scout.

 

2.  Yeramba - Australian post WW2 modification of the M7 Priest.

 

We need more Aussie tanks.

 

3.  Churchill AVRE - Look it up!!

 

This tank could provide a very interesting element to the game with its 250mm Mortar.  The shells should be HE ONLY with a very wide splash area but low damage.  It would have one of the best arcs for any Arty, and be well suited to close support of tanks.  It would be a one shot/kill at short range shotgun shots, even on Tanks two tiers above.

1. could be a good addition. 2 + 3) I don't mind Arty too much unless they drown or focus one target all game but for the good of the Community, i would pass on them with the amount of Arty Hate which goes on. Although M7 Priest would be less OP than the Sexton 1 but the AVRE sounds like a Conqueror GC on Steroids and would be too broken to enter the game even if it had a 4 minute reload.

How many tanks does the game need, a few hundred or so more? Man we have so many now why? Are we that bored with what we have have that we need to keep getting that new tank fix to keep playing?

Churchill AVRE could be implemented just by adding an appropriate package to the Churchill VI, (balanced by reload time), hopefully replacing the 3.7 AT Mortar package. 

Would also be an idea to replace the 3" Mortar package on the Churchill I with the 3.7", the 3" is basically useless at tier V, let alone firing at a tier VII.

New Tanks keep the game fresh. Every Weekly Assault it's "Where are the Swedish Mediums?" but when that releases they'll ask about a New Tank line PC has (Probably Wheeled Vehicles) :)

I'd love to see the Scorpion / Scimitar added as two packages on the same tech tree tank.  I have no idea why WG missed the boat on that with the UK light tank line.

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

The Churchill AVRE we need is the one with the 165mm L9 gun; a proper KV-2 equivalent. They made a Centurion with this gun too. 

3 MOEs - Nashorn, M36 Jackson, SU-100, S35CA, Matilda IV, Jagdpanzer IV, Archer, Wolverine, Achilles, T25/2, PzSflIVC,, T67

2 MOEs - Type 58, Pzkpfw T25, WT Pz IV, JagdPanther, SU-100Y, Boilermaker, T20, IS-2, T-34-88, Borsig, AMX AC 48, Charioteer, Plaguebringer, SU-85, Churchill GC, StuG3G

Had not even considered adding the AVRE mortar as a package on the Churchill I or VII.

 

Max, is it possible have an "Arty " package on a "Tank" line?  The AVRE package would need to operate as Arty.  

 

And by including it it as a package on the Churchill, you could then link the grind on the Centurian I with the same Mortar package.

Mentioning the Swedish, an update to the existing T8-10 Heavies would also be welcomed. In their current state they play like a half-baked mix between AMX 50/120 and T57 Heavy. Their PC counterparts have a more distinct style.

AVRE package could operate like a British KV2, would need a quite long reload to balance, probably abysmal accuracy and pen values as well, but since the CVII is so slow as well...

You can use the 3.7" package on the CVII, though at tier VI it's starting to lose effectiveness,  especially against VIIIs. The 3" on the Churchill I is just useless, I personally don't feel it's a viable choice even on the tier IV tanks that it can be fitted to, (though would still like an option to fit it on the Valantine).

Nice ideas but would still give my right hand for a decent British Light line - we've now fewer TT Lights compared to when I started playing 5 years ago......not a good trend :unsure:

I miss the Crusader being classed as a Light, not that I used it as such, but the movement bonus was very welcome.

 

Waiting to see how Console handle the British Light line if they introduce them, on PC they're a bit of a mess.

For that matter they put it on an M60 chassis as well to make the M728 CEV.
