HELLO

LETS PLAY A GAME

Posted Image



Greetings...and welcome. I trust that you are all wondering why you are here. I can assure you that while your location is not important, what this post offers you is important...

a chance for you to win a PZB2 f +300 gold + 1 days premium and a garage slot

of course.. there are rules

the competition will expire at 20:30 today, if nobody has correctly identified all the tanks, the prize, is forfeit, i need correct identities or as close AS POSSIBLE, that includes make/model/mark or as much info as possible, in the case of a draw the player that can add the extra info will get the prize.

lets start with some easier ones
Have fun tankers...

Spoiler                     

Hopefully you will enjoy trying to figure these out, and this timer it might need a bit more skill than just reversing the image? first person to post all the correct details inc make/model/mark or as close to the answer wins, i will let you know about 8:30ish and give you your code for a shiny tank by PM
in the event the forum does some weird stuff like losing images (its been a bit odd for the last few days. i will attempt to fix it, and re-dispaly any images and extend the contest)

Including make model and mark? Yeah, why not remove all chance of people winning?
Doesn't help that you've got a few prototype/paper tanks here.

It had to be done. Google image search was turning these competitions into a cut and paste speed test, not a knoweldge of tanks competition.

Ed, I'll have a crack later, but some of those are complete bastards!
Well done  :teethhappy:

Nice contest, good that somebody can come up with something really challenging, unfortunately I dont have an idea about most of these, but it will be nice to see who wins and with what answers.

Number 4 could be a Centaur (http://www.dykking.n...r_tank_stor.jpg) and number 6 an IS-85 (http://www.flamesofw...et/IS-85-01.jpg). Finally, number 9 should be a Matilda Frog (http://upload.wikime...ilda-Frog-2.jpg).

For the rest; I'm not sure.
