Within the World of Tanks Forum there are several sub-sections devoted to specific subjects. It is clear from this thread and others like my "Comparing WoT with life as a real tank soldier" that there is a significant number of ex-real world tank soldiers playing this game. What do you guys think about adding a new section specifically for ex-real world tank crewmen? If you think its a good idea, what sort of subjects do you thing would belong in such a place?

 

Richard, would you support such an idea?

 

To get the ball rolling what about the following subjects:

- sharing funny stories from your time as a tank soldier

- sharing how tank crewmen from different countries perform similar crew duties (as much as is allowed by your countries secrets act)

- possibly working towards a get-together somewhere for ex-tank soldiers who play WoT

- comparing the good and bad things about specific tanks we used to work on

 

Hello tankies,

 

Inspired by smith841's excellent idea, we will be creating a sub-section dedicate to our Real Life existing and former tankies, as well as all those who wish to familiarize themselves with the way of the tank.

How about the "After Fives Clubhouse"?.........I'm not a military chap but I found this and it might fit the bill.

 

 

  • After fives - Refers to the plain black spit polished dress shoe worn by soldiers either with their pollies or after dinner to give their feet a rest from their boots.

 

 

A place to go now that you are not in active service....put your feet up and relax....have a chat and share your experiences

Good idea but real tankies do not where spit and polished shoes! They smell of diesel, wear thick-soled boots, and have a light coating of dust and dirt all over them.

Several suggestions here:

 

1) Tankies Tavern

2) The Real Tank Men

3) Tank Traverse Right Steady On!

4) Target Stop

 

The last two relate to the fireorders used by (British) tank crews when engaging enemy tanks. I am sure someone can do better than this!!

One vote for 1) Tankies Tavern!

 

After hard day of fighting in digital tanks, pop a cold one and discuss the real machines

I don't like this term ("real life"). It implies that Internet and activities within it are not real. They might be virtual, not physical (eg tanks), but they are just as real. Much better term to express the same concept is "AFK" (away from keyboard), and I think it would be especially suited for a video game forum. Please consider this while choosing the name.

 

My suggestion would be something like "AFK Tankers", "Tanking AFK" or similar.

 

Just my 2 cents.
