Panzer I B for the win! :D Please don't tell me these vehicles are premium tanks.....

I see you also improvised weapons there as the panzer I B did never have anything else than 2 machineguns as armament. There were of course come conversions but none with the standard turret. It seems you have been using Panzer I A's converted in the Spanish Civil war with bigger guns and taller turrets. However, Panzer I A's had different suspensions, we slightly shorter and had the hind wheel on teh ground as well as a different exhaust layout.

I'll be palying the UK TD tree from the start, would not want to miss a TD vehicle (my favourite class)

Judging from the chassis this TD tree will be sort of a T95 from Tier II to Tier IX ?:D Slow and cumbersome heavy guns with good armour....

------------

Edit: Why are you moving my beloved VK2801 to tier 6? It's just perfect as it is an benefits from a slightly larger tier spread now which brings in refreshing (lower tier) battles as well. So this patch will basically mean my trusty steed is the only top line Tier 6 scout in the game then for now? I hope you are also boosting the income and lowering the repair cost then? :(

Cobra 6

Are you blind or just annoyed as the only copy paste tank could be FV 215 183 or maybe the Churchill gun carrier but then you could call Nahshorn, Hummel, Jagtiger copy paste tanks to :facepalmic:

"Gun Carrier, 3in, Mk I, Churchill (A22D)
(50) Produced
A fixed 88 mm (3.5 in) thick superstructure with the gun in a ball mount. The gun was an otherwise obsolete 3 inch anti-aircraft gun. Fifty were built in 1942 but none are known to have been used."

"The Carrier, Anti-tank, 2-pdr, (Aust) or Carrier, 2-pdr Tank Attack was a heavily modified and lengthened LP2 carrier with a fully traversable QF 2 pounder anti-tank gun mounted on a platform at the rear and the engine moved to the front left of the vehicle. Stowage was provided for 112 rounds of 2pdr ammunition. 200 were produced and used for training"

So if devs are using this one then it is a turret :Smile-playing:
