Hi all, This is mainly for Brits and Europeans.

 

There was a game which I used to play many, many, many years ago on an old computer called the Acorn Archimedes called Conqueror. I have a youtube link here so you can refresh your memory:

F.Y.I. whippersnappers: Yes in our day, polygons were advanced graphics for us! 

 

The tank on the title screen is a Tiger II, and in the demo, you see the Chaffee, the PzIII, and the Jackson (M36 GMC)

 

Now this game had three factions, the Americans, the Germans and the Russians, each having 4 different tanks. Some of the tank names are slightly different to what we are used to in WOT.

 

What I need help with is remembering all of the Russian tank line. The American line was the Chaffee, the M36 GMC, the Sherman Firefly, and the Pershing. The Germans had the PzIII, the Panther, the Tiger I and the King Tiger. The only tanks I remember from the Russian side is the  T-34/76 (which was the smallest Russian tank in the game) and the JS-II (IS-2) which was the largest, but I can't remember the other two. can anyone help me fill in the blanks?

Even though I fit the age category I have no clue.

I never played the game.

But why don't you download it and check it yourself?

The game should run on any modern PC.
