Only fake tank: CARL.

The tank model may be fake, but the Karl was a real thing.

just like with the OLD PANZER ELITE tank game...... The issue would be EVERYONE whining about "THE GERMANS" Nothing the Americans had during WW2 could go Toe to Toe with a Tiger much less a King Tiger. The development tanks seem to be to even the scale. Also the German optics were way better, this game puts everyone one the same level and the TANKER is the one to make the battle difference,

The Soviets would be scarier than the Germans I think. An IS2 seems scarier than a Tiger, and the ISU/SU-152 seem quite scary with those 152 mm howitzers, especially if the HE rounds did realistic damage.

That's the point I was making. People just keep complaining about how the Tiger is super-nerfed in this game. Meanwhile the only combat-approved tank at tier 7 that would have been thrown up against it is the Comet, which still needs to be at close range to penetrate.

 

Raibot:

I don't actually have it hosted on my photobucket, oddly enough. Here's the Twitter version: https://pbs.twimg.co...xv_400x400.jpeg

IS2, T-34-85, various self-propelled guns used by the Soviets, all of those can deal with the Tiger.

this kid is just trying to act like he know's every thing. they give you a back story on the tank when you highlight it

Some of which are fake. GWE100 for example is fake, no-one ever conceived of thinking about thinking about making one.

The E-50s do have the benefit of having been further in the design process, but it wasn't even modeled, putting it further behind in development than the GW Panther.

Yah the T-28 didn't really exist, but that was a matter of nomenclature. If you look at the pictures of it being shipped to Korea, you can see that it was very often in single-track mode, giving us the T-28 version with what we have as the T-95 being its FINAL FORM. The T-95 chassis was never built with a turreted version.

The T28/T95 was real, but the In-game model for the T28 is fake. Should look exactly like a T95 with the outer tracks removed.

you make it sound like it's a crime. even though almost all if not  all the tanks in game were either prototypes, saw actual combat or blueprints

Yes, some are fake, but the ones that aren't are either test subjects (prototypes) or real tanks in world war 2, like the american mediums

i overheard an english man say it was unfair that there were no german tanks after 1945. well maybe if y'all at WoT are gonna have fake tanks it could be post 1940s german ones and you could explain why.

This may be one of the reasons I gravitate toward the U.S Medium line. It's ripe with "real" production tanks. As well as all of the tanks are aesthetically pleasing. Furthermore, my dad was a tank commander of an M60 in the late 80's early 90's. Not technically a Patton Tank but it's a derivative of the M48. :)

An option to select historical combat mode could make things interesting as you could then fight real tanks from the period of your tank.

 

 

This one million times, I've spent my last $ until this happens.  I've had enough of being shot up by tanks from 3-5years beyond my tank.

I don't mind the "fake" tanks in the game. The designers need to keep players interested in the game and the only way to do that is with new tanks and maps.

No problem with that, its the mismatches that bug me.  Group the cold war tanks together, not together with the ww2 stuff.

Small, teeny tiny problem. I'll use the M26 Pershing as an example. The M26 was designed in 1944, entered service in '45. That makes it a WWII tank. But, it saw service in Korea which also makes it a Cold War era tank. A couple more examples, the T-34-85 and the IS-2. Both tanks saw service in WWII and Korea. The M4 Sherman was still in active service, albeit not with America but Israel, as late as 1973. The Bundeswehr was rearmed with German WWII tanks until the West German government could get the Leopard I into mass production.

 

Do you see the small, teeny tiny problem? If not, I'll explain. Which tanks that can be defined as WWII era and which tanks that can be defined as Cold War era is often a bit of a grey area.

Many tanks never made it off paper, and are aptly named 'paper tanks'.

it's a trade off really, WoT is a tank lovers game before it's a historians game

 

i think the mix of eras through grading tanks in tiers makes for a fun game, but obviously you miss out on the god mode everyone wants from tanks like the tiger 2

 

i did get a kick out of the Leopard 1's road-friendly brake lights when i meet them in a tier 8 1940's era sort of tank (probably King Tiger), it was a bit like alien tek lol

WOT is an arcady "tank" themed game. 

 

And that's totally OK.

 

Personally, I only play WOT for some of the real historical tanks of early WW2. I don't think I'll ever play a prototype or blue print tank.

However, I am ok with these "paper" tanks being in the game. The real world WW2 tanks proportions were lobsided. An arcady game 

needs to be balanced to be fun to play.

The interesting thing about the Halo reference is the only pure Halo reference is the "Wraith". 

The Scorpion and Grizzly are produced tanks.  The Scorpion is British 70's with development in the 60's while the Grizzly is WW2 Canadian era.  Both Scorpion and Grizzly are WoT possibles.

 

Maybe we'll see a video game inspire a name for a production tank in the future.  As an "arcady tank themed game" the Wraith should be Tier 22 as WoT expands in the future.

The Bundeswehr was rearmed with German WWII tanks until the West German government could get the Leopard I into mass production.

 

The Bundeswehr startet service in 1955, 10 years after WWII. The Panzertruppe was built from scratch in early 1956 with US M47 and M48 tanks.
