WOW! This is great! With this 50% offer I can save a huge 64 thousand credits when buying an M3 Lee. That's such a great offer I think I might buy it again to play because I sure would not be able to afford 128 thousand now that I have more than 5 tier V tanks......

WTF??

Now.. why, oh why, are there Russian tanks on special??

Were the Russians anywhere near that desert??

Jesus....
These are British tanks, duh. If we would have a British line, they will include tanks from there, but as only British vehicels availiable are the ones lend-leased to the USSR it's obvious they had to choose them.
I'm not defending the special, because it is simply very weak, but the logic for chosing these premium tanks is solid.

Rubbish utter Rubbish
Even 3xp for 1st win isnt that much
Duration of specials seems to be getting shorter as well
AGAIN EU server treated unfair in comparison to US
6 tanks half price all on double credits

Prefer our special any day over that one, 3x first win on all vehicles vs double income and cost of couple vehicles.
Its a matter of taste, said the dog and licked his ass.

And...??

More reason to include the british tank tree...

read my, now edited, post again...

there are plenty of tanks with British/US/German insignia that actually took part to put on special.... many more than listed...
the Russians were no-where near.. that is my point.... Last years El Alamein special was much closer to the reality and was acceptable... this is rubbish....

My God. Is this a joke? Surely this is some sort of strange humour and they’re going to post up the real special in a couple of hours?

important battle during World War II

I only see some discount on a few small tanks. Great special for such an important battle.
