Desert Island Tanks: There's a radio program on the BBC called Desert Island Discs. The premise of the show is that you're trapped on a desert island. What 5 songs would you take and why. Naturally, it is the story behind each song choice that is important, not the music itself. 

 

All time classic episode was from legend Tom Hanks. Worth a listen if you have some free time - https://www.bbc.co.u...rammes/b079m78n

 

So, Desert Island Tanks. All but 5 tanks have to be deleted from your account for unknown reasons. Which 5 do you keep and why?

 

Here's mine:

 

M46 Patton - the all American, all rounder. Great DPM, gun depression, mobile enough and got my first Radley's in it. Managed to 2 mark, but the third constantly escapes me. Sneak up to 92% or so to only slip back down... you know the drill. Stranded on a desert island, I'll have plenty of time to finish that off. 

 

Turtle - I hesitated to put a Merc on the list, but this thing to too fun to exclude. Sure, it's not the best tier 8 light in the land, but slapping a Waffle for 800 something is hilarious.

 

Conqueror - I need to chose a heavy to keep the list balanced and the Conq is a classic. Sporting the fantastic 120mm cannon, great turret and rate of fire and 10 degrees of gun depression. Really, you can't go wrong with a Conq.


Fury - Looks awesome, is awesome. 


Borsig - Kinda feel I should choose a TD for balance reasons. So, it'll have to be the Borsig. Great variation possibilities with the 15cm or 12.8cm cannon. As sneaky as a camouflaged fox.


What's yours?

Snakebite: The light tank for Lols, that started it all......

 

Iron Rain: Love the Borsig, but this TD is pure evil and more fun.

 

STA-1: I just “clicked” immediately this this lovely Japanese all-rounder

 

STA-2 Black: See the above, happily play both of these all day.

 

Tiger I: Main reason I played the game, and not your standard heavy tank..... One of few I have two-marked.

 

Looking over my choices, I would possibly change the STA-2 Black for a few others, in particular Sexy Sam: Just for the complete and utter broken Lols..... If I can only have 5 tanks, you should enjoy playing them!

 

Cheers MB

T-62A: I'm a horrible person when I play it and it's my most played tank ever.

ISU-152: what can I say I enjoy some extra Russian bias in my life.

Cent 7/1: HESH, HESH and more HESH

E-75: Has always been my most loved German heavy since I unlocked it back in the day.

Bat.Chatillon 25t: Just because when you do need to run you could do it in style

 Damn it! You're right. How could I forget the Rover? :facepalm:

 

Sorry, Borsig, you might have to stay home. Meh, who needs TD's anyway... :D

You better make room. Now that you’ve made that public, a bunch of us are coming to claim sanctuary.

M4 Sherman - it just has a sentimental spot with me and always will.

 

Tiger I - much the same, as the M4 and Tiger were my first goals in the game.

 

VK100.01P - because, even though I’m not (survival ain’t 100%!), I feel invincible in it.

 

 Leopard I - I don’t know why I love it, but I do.

 

FV4005 Stage II - because LOL!

131, Iron Rain, Chafee, M4, and Lycan would round out my list.  Nice topic.

T-Rex:  best tank in the game.  Since WG will never balance low tiers it's the one tank I know will never get nerfed.

 

King Dragon: great all around money maker

 

T-50-2:  most fun tank in the game. Hilarious even when you crash and die.

 

AMX 13 90:  the only tech tree tank I've kept.

 

Chisel:  still the best tier 10 tank.

Panzer 3K (Best tier 5 don't @ me)

Locust - I do like to mong out in the low tiers when times are tough

Centurion 7/1 - Just one of my consistently great tanks

E100 - First tier 10 and can't let her go

Freedom - So I can make some silver

 

 


Bye for now

The TOG. That way I could just sail away off the island. :)

I don’t know how to act my age! I’ve never been this old before!

A tough one, just like desert island discs.

 

48 Patton, as I like playing the ridges.

The Sheridan, my first tier 10 light and still my favorite, even if the Panzervagen is better.

The Rover for those low tier shenanigans.

430U for brawling

5A for various roles.
