Question 2, which I had wrong is not correct in its entirety.

 

Answers: 

M18

Panther

Tiger II

M36 Slugger

 

The correct answer according to you is that its the hellcat, which its not. 

It is in fact an M10 Wolverine as you can see from the next pic. 

 

You can clearly see the turret shape and mantlet shape of the M18 photo is completely different from your question photo.

Also note you said the riveted hull shape corresponds with that of the hellcat, again it doesnt as the headlight guards on the M10s are significantly smaller than of the actual M18. 

Hence why I was confused about the questions answers and filled in M36  :facepalm:.

I am pretty sure the M18 Hellcat does not have a closed turret, which quite obviously the tank in the picture does.

But I guess it is quite hard to know the wiki of your own game: http://wiki.wargamin...ank:M18_Hellcat

 

In my opinion the contest is null and void as it is quite obvious the wrong answers were expected.

Given that when I complained about one of the magazines offers WG Support said they knew nothing about it I'm not surprised if any questions turn out to be bogus as well. If they didn't know anything about the magazine and its content why are WG now announcing results for a competition?

In my opinion, this is only partialy correct. While the turret clearly indicates the M10, the hull seems more like a hellcat. The rivets (the small bumps on the frontplate) seem like those of a hellcat to me. I personally would still give you the T40 but unfortunaly i have no power to do so :(.

Hah! BULL*HIT! Again we can see, what tank "experts" works in WG... Make contest and don't know right answers.

Maybe in soviet there is no google nor wikipedia.

 

Right answer to 2nd question is: M10 tank destroyer!

Its turret is turned to the back, below we see back hull plate with tail light, and soldiers are sitting on engine deck plate. M10 was used in Africa, but Hellcats entered service after African campaign. The T70 prototype for the M18 first saw combat at Anzio, Italy, and production versions of the M18 were used in N-W Europe and Italy from the summer of 1944 onwards.

 

And the question no.7 - Its NOT the Ausf.F2!

Number of rollers is not the best feature to distinguish F2 and J, since first batches of J had 4 rollers as well (but those were all steel, introduced in late Ausf.H). Also, under the canvas cover we see two-chamber muzzle brake, triple  grenade launchers on turret side, no turret side visors, new spare wheels box on hull side, all those features introduced in Ausf.G...

 

Its really so hard to find proper pictures for your questions?

As it was said earlier - "In my opinion the contest is null and void as it is quite obvious the wrong answers were expected."

So players, who answered truly right, didn't scored.

So a competition that can't be participated without a smartphone, that may have incorrect "correct" answers.

Tbh, I dont care about the T40, its just silly that they let us do a fun guiz with tank pics only to have the wrong answers for it. 

Let me refer you to this then:

Compare the hulls, the one from WG has small headlights that are far to the sides of the hull and no folds in the hullcorners, whereas the hellcat has its headlights closer to the center and (edit though that can be differences in factory specs over the years or field modifications) folds in the armor near the mudguards:

Seems like a hidden archive type of fail. Same coding team ? Also, why is WG wasting time on a mobile magazine when there are still critical bugs to fix in the pc game and on the forum ?

Dear WG, if you really want WOT players to be interested in mobile applications, don't give us a incorrect quiz that was easily rigged by JTKwack. Develop WOT Light. PM me or contact me in-game if you want to know what I mean.
