If you have problems getting it to work, try logging in and logging out.

 

Issues;

(a) Sherman Firefly with a British crew on it - answer to is it USA, the correct answer is YES, despite the gun change, and the crew, as the hull was manufactured in the USA.

(b) Got the photograph of the Humber armoured car twice.

© Picture of an M4A1 Sherman, question "is it Canadian?", yes of course I am aware that the Canadians built some M4A1's under licence, and called them Grizzly and put a bit more armour on them, but fundementally this is a USA tank. So when I answer "NO" it says I am wrong and that the tank is Canadian, but of course it's an American design ...

Lol on the trial questions... Picture of a Jagd 38t, is it "World War II". Clicks yes, Wrong it is "World War II" GG WG 

 

Also some of the pictures and questions are very ambiguous... Picture of a Knocked out M4 Sherman in France, " Is it USA?" Well I could answer No as it's in France, or Yes as it's a Sherman...

Canadian I think.

This is a nice event, but some people have more than 7k points and no one have any idea when will the event ends so I dont think it worths to participate.

But the Achilles was a British tank, it could be Canadians operating it but the questions are so woolly you could knit with them . There was a picture of a British Sherman, and I answered USA and it's was correct...

I'm sorry...but you can't just release this and expect me to forget to complete shambles of the last effort. I love Bovington with all my heart, but you fucked us over last time and then release this out of the blue without even acknowledging that you have already tried this once and it was a mess. By most accounts it's looks just as bad as the first attempt.

The language is very ambiguous. If you are refering to the country the picture was taken in, then 'Is it Germany?' is fine. If you are asking if the tank in the picture is German then the question should read 'Is it German?'.

Yes this is an issue with the Syntax in the questions.

 

Also If you have a picture of an Inter War tank used in WWII do you put Inter war or WWII? What is the dividing line between Post war and Cold War?
