I don't know what he is like to work for, but Victor always seem to come across very well on most interviews and videos. Glad that they got some money for restoring these old tanks :)

Have fun... its really good. Make sure you go in the conservation hall if you can and if it is open, some really rare tanks in there like the T14, FV4202, Excelsior etc!

Awesome, I hope you'll do it again. Just come back to the game after playing again at Tankfest so I missed out on buying the premium vehicles, ah well I did my part bying from the gift shop haha!

 

Can't believe I missed out on the goodie bag codes and t shirts D: Went at 1pm on the 2nd day and just got an empty bag and bottle opener... at least the bag is nice though ><.

Very glad to hear this news. That Bovington Package for 50€ was a good deal on its own and I'm glad I bought it, and this is just icing on the cake.

Went to the Tank Fest this year.
AMAZING!!!
They "reenacted" the Battle of Arnhem. Complete with a P51 Mustang running attack runs, and a C-47 Dakota making a few passes. *Goosebumps*


I had been there before, but this was extraordinary!
 

WELL worth the money, and time!
If you are able, GO THERE!!!

This is very good!

 

This is also one of the things I like about games like WOT, WOWP, War Thunder etc... , it's that they sparked a new interest in WWII tanks, airplanes, museums, etc...

 

Well done Wargaming and everybody who donated! :great:

75.000e ?

Not bad! In France and living a few kms away from the Musée des Tanks at Saumur, (http://museedesblindes.fr/) I know that dedicated and skilled guys can do wonders with this kind of money...

Hi, good job!
However, as iron rusts and funds are scarce, I just like to bring to your attention, that there's also another museum with some truly rare exhibits that could use this kind of benevolent donation: http://www.panssarim...fi/kehys-e.html
Kr,
P.
