Not removed - renamed
I have the feeling it has something to do with RL Wittmann`s Waffen-SS past

This is just stupid.Wittmann may have been in the SS but he was just a soldier not a war criminal.It's so wrong to remove one of the most successful tank commanders from the medals.

Get over it, you can still call it whatever you want.
It is quite obvious why devs had to change the name at some point.

I don't see too much problem with it. Johannes Bölter was also an outstanding tank commander who deserves some credit.

Russians have another perspective, just like US guys, on WWII history and have to learn/adapt that doing a game about this era might include some historical figures/names that aren't alright with everyone.
I have no problem with the change. Just relax, guys.

Until now I have only 2 Wittmann's medals (after the beta). Also somebody said, that will be renaming only. So, no stress on this change.

I guess when World of Warplanes is out there won't be a Hartmann or a Rudel medal just because they also fought mainly on the Eastern front.

I would appreciate a vonRichthofen medal in wowp.. even its a earlier era hes a untouched ace.

Deleteing ("Renaming") the Wittmann medal is just ...

Its history.. I can live with it nowadays because it was in another era already, you might be able, too?

When Nazi stuff is so cruel 'til now... what is about the Communism stuff (which has taken place in closer history?) allowed or what?

What about a Herman Goeuring medal.... he was a flying ace of the first world war... he lived through the war but The Red Barron did not.... he deserved a medal for what he in the first, but not for what he allowed to happen in the second... Would he be totally erased from history too!?!

If you change his medal then you should change all the medals that are named after soldiers who fought on the eastern front.
More or less every soldier (German and Russian)commited some kind of war crime at the eastern front.
And if you would look closely it also happened at the west front, just at a much smaller scale (Churchill gave the order to use nerve gas on german cities, the generals ignored his order).

In reality almost al heroes commited war crimes not only those of WO2
Napoleon, Julius Ceasar, Alexander the great all comitted war crimes.

I think they should stick with the names, but update the description of the soldiers it was named after.
Simply tell the most important things of the soldier including war crimes.

Maybe his work with 1.SS-Panzer-Division Leibstandarte-SS Adolf Hitler on the eastern front makes his
name on a medal,sort of not being something to strive for.
