TOG II Fast Scout

8.7 super leak

preview

Morning chaps

This just in from a close source at the RU server super secret test site based under the Ural mountains, we can confirm that WG are making a fast light tank for the 8.7 future release, the TOG 2 fast scout tank was originally built by the same men who built the original TOG 2 tank, after a severe chastisement by Winston Churchill in 1942 they went back to the drawing boards, and deciding that the last 49ft of the TOG was not strictly necessary with the cutbacks imposed by the war effort; shortened their model and made it a recon unit.

The Tog RecOnnaissance Light and Low model was designed to replace tanks such as Cromwell and Chaffee as a light fast but heavily armored scout, able to withstand all but the biggest German guns, the new TOG was impressive to say the least, with a top speed in excess of 80kph over rough terrain, and wielding up too 100mm of spaced armor all round, carrying a fully automatic 17 pounder gun that was later copied by General Electric and turned into the GAU8
the TOG is( sometimes referred to as TOG III* - Book Source: Rare Tanks; E. C'tar pages 87-89

The TOG  scout was powered though a pair of Twin linked Rolls Royce engines and a Merritt brown Flux Capacitor that ran from the front of the tank to the rear, early experiments on with Radar and tracking devices gave the TOG scout the ability to detect tanks at several miles away, although only several were built as Germany capitulated after receiving news that this tank was placed in service. only one battle is recorded, in which a Tiger from the 185th heavy tank brigade was knocked out in a frantic fight.

SerB has stated in an internal email to the Super Super testers that the 8.7 TOG will be a premium tier 5 brit scout, although no gold amount has been confirmed it is expected to be around 1500. while not much is know at this time, and the Ural mountain developers are still in testing, we were able to get these screen for you -

Must have killed that one without even noticing, given the speed he was moving its quite possible :P

In front you see wheels and tracks of a Tiger 1. But maybe it was a Tiger-Scout I think it s speed was about 75 kph so it hat no chance when the TOG came from behind  :amazed:

you could see it coming from miles...
not much low profile for scout, though it has serious speed...

Me wants one. Die tier 7. DIE!

Good photoshop skills ( ?). Middle screen is showing strange, new species of pine. Sharp edge pine I presume. Just above engine compartment.

Guys seriously? This is just a bad troll, look at the badly photoshoped pictures and those parameteres are just insane.

I'm getting tired of all the fast tanks with great rate of fire... When do we get some real re-balancing with more maps and stuff that's more important. I think there is enough tanks in the game, at least two next patches should focus on gameplay

I would buy and put it on my regular TOG II to make a battleship on a battleship!

And I would also buy this soviet april ball-tank with two D-25T guns!

Funny stuff and great work!

Have a +1!
