Chess Piece: Rook

Tank Chosen: Rhm Borsig

-Stats: View Range of 400m, Speed of 35km/hr, 12.8 Kanone gun with 246 avg pen and 490 avg damage, 15 Pak gun with 215 avg pen and 750 avg damage.

-Chose this tank as a Rook because it can pretty much hold a "line" from a distance on its own or as a hard hitting supporter.  With great view range, small and stealthy stature, great pen and damage potential...many players will stop, or at the very least slow their advance after loosing a big chunk of health from an unseen opponent.  Need someone to help hold the 3 Line? Borsig can do it.  Need someone to help hold the G Line? Borsig can do it.  Just like a Rook to hold a "line".  Borsig can do it!  

Well, thats my entry. A true pleasure of a tank to play.

I chose the T-95 as the rook

Anything straight in front is in the danger zone.(like the rook only able to move in a straight line)

Sorry bout the terrible art not to talented with the computer art stuff

It's a Bishop...that doubles as a Bishop.  Not altogether clever, but the gun traverse on the SPG is almost as narrow as the straight line attack ability of the chess piece.

 

looks like we had the same idea :)

Surprised more folks didn't go that route.  Props on yours though;  that one will be tough for anyone to beat.

Chess Piece:  King

Tank Chosen:  The 16th tank.  The Base!

(Because despite having no attack capability, it can give away the location of hostile tanks within a small radius.  This can be detrimental to an attack if units are deployed in an attempt to put the base in check prematurely.  Also, because if you lose the base, well that's literally check mate buddy.  It can be castled in some situations in conjunction with the rook, to quickly change locations if a rebalance is needed for the map).

Good connection, I wouldn't have thought of that!

Chess piece: King

Tank: Tiger II

Description: The Tiger II is the "King Tiger" so it is the only tank that deserves the title. I also added the Iron Cross in order to the German synergy.

OOoooo, this is it, this will be the competition I will win!

I've been drawing tanks for months now, I should be able to come up with something good.

Here's an example...

I often animate with these, I drew a lot of them based off WoT.

I'm glad a competition came up where I have a chance, I'll mine in by Wednesday. ;)

 

So excited!


Block Quote

...At a prewar diplomatic conference, the Nazi Foreign Minister Ribbentrop "sniffed" to Eden and Churchill that if there was another war, the Italians would be on Germany's side!
To which Churchill supposedly replied: "that seems only fair, we had them last time!"...

Piece: King

Tank: T92

 

The T92 is like the King in chess. You have to protect the King, much like you have to protect artillery. If left undefended, it will probably die. The King usually doesn't do anything, like the T92. When it does do something, it feels great.

Chess piece: Pawn

Tank: M3 Lee. This tank is always seen as sacrificial but when left alone it can be made into a game changer in capable hands

Chess Piece: PAWN

Tank: Matilda

 

The similarities between a Pawn and a Matilda are many in number... A Pawn moves one space at a time across the chessboard. The Matilda tank also moves slowly across the battlefield. A group of pawns on the chessboard can secure an area and force the enemy to change their direction of attack. A group of Matildas can also be used in a group to alter the flow of battle on the battlefield to another direction. A Pawn can take any other piece on the board within its attack zone. With its great penetration and high rate of fire the Matilda can also take on foes that are ranked above it in the hierarchy of the battlefield. A Pawn will never be found going back toward its own starting position. A Matilda that has made it more than half way across the battlefield will likewise not go back to reset a base capture. The only difference between a Chess Pawn and a Matilda is that when a Chess Pawn reaches the enemy's back rank it can become any piece within the force. A Matilda would never stoop so low as to lose its identity after reaching the enemy backfield. Instead a Matilda will simply keep up its pressure on the enemy with its superior rate of fire.

Only novice players underestimate pawns. The axis underestimated the power Shermans had supporting the movement of the larger force.
