not really pioneered by the Russians... the concept was existing as early as ww1 and i believe that i read somewhere that they have found a German prototype, but im not entirely sure.

Shame they stuck them on their banner over such an iconic and nationally important image as The Cliffs of Dover on their banner, one commonly associated with Britain's resistance to the Germans during WW2.

I know personally these things can be hard to catch, inadvertently causing offense where its not really intended, but WG seem to do this regularly.

PS. everyone an administrator now.. really...

Spherical tanks? Well the Russian tried building circular warships back in the 19th C.

(I wonder if these will make it into World of Warships?)
