The correct answer shouldn't be T92 Light Tank, as according to Wikipedia it was never accepted into service. Anyway...:unsure:

You should look at the mentions of @WorldofTanks_EN or click on Home button. You should find your place in there, if that's what you where looking after.

The basic design name of Maus was " VK7001 / Porsche Type 205", on twitter you said it was "VK7001 / Porsche Type 205[2]" - the [2] is just a link to references in wikipedia article that somebody mistakenly copied.
I hope it won't be an issue while picking correct answers:)

I hope you'll also accept "MS-1" as well as "T-18" as the correct answer to the question "This first Soviet-designed tank was based on the Renault FT-17. What's its name?".

The question didn't mention about the tank making it into service.

That's true, then my answer as "M24 Chaffee" could also have been the correct one, as this actually was the tank that took it's place, at least according to Wikipedia.

Wikipedia said:

In 1964 the M41 light tank was selected to replace the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) M24 Chaffee light tank [...]
I had to delete my answer (was first for the first time I play this btw) and provide a new answer, hoping will be the one that is randomly picked. Fingers crossed. :D Anyway, I seriously doubt will win something.:unsure:

The last question today was asked wrong! "This British locomotive builder built the Infantry Tank Mk II in 1929? What's its name?" Vulcan Foundry (what you wrote as correct answer) build the Matilda II infantry tank in 1939! The light tank Mk II was build by Vickers Armstrong in 1929. And that is why my answers was Vickers Armstrong. Because first the name matched and second the year matched. On the Wikipedia pages you can also find that Infantry tank Matilda II was designed in 1937 and produced in 1937-1943! So it could not be build by Mr Vulcan Foundry in 1929!?

Can we get a reply to this?  ;)

Thx

The question says "it was designed to", not "it had replaced".

Hi,

Many thanks for spotting the mistake. You're right, this can be misleading!
In such case, both answers will be taken into account :)

Jesus Christ, not only did I forget to put my username on the seemingly first correct answer to the one I entered, when I re-entered with my username I typed it wrong :(:D epic fail.
