the allies suffered significant losses on d-day? rlly? As i know the total man that the americans lost on d-day was 6000... the russians lost 6000 men in only a couple of hours in stalingrad.. the americans english and french in total lost about 1million soldiers throughout ww2.. the germans alone lost about 13million!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and the russians lost more that the previous nations together (about) 27million!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Not going to research the numbers so I can't confirm them or deny them, but wouldn't you say that a loss of life, regardless of the numbers is still a significant loss?

The children growing up without a father, will they not see it as a significant loss? What about the mothers who never got to hold their sons again? What about the women who never got to see their husband come back home?

The germans did not lose 13 million soldiers. Its estimated today, germany lost 7 - 7.5 million people including civilians. Of these, roughly 4.5 - 5.5 mill were soldiers. 

 

Also, the idea that DDay was american is a myth. The majority of manpower present, leadership, ships, etc were british.

But his information is not wrong, there were over 83000 British and Commonwealth troops to the American 73000.

It's not fantastic but I've had fun seal clubbing in mine. It's not a Pz. II J by any stretch of the imagination, but it gets the job done and wasn't expensive enough for me to feel done over. Honestly, for tank collectors it's not bad.

It's a tier 3 tank that sees tier 6 MM. Not really a sealclubber as it doesn't have armor or a gun.

:facepalm: WG EU is just piece of sh.t. They should fire all of the staff and hire bunch of competent guys. If you have a look at what ASIA and US servers are offering, the EU is just total crap.

But who in their right mind would be in a German tank needing to destroy 30, wHile every body else is gunning for you, only needing to destroy 10 ?

so NA and SEA get the new VK4503 and EU gets? the scorpion... your joking right? theres a good reason why that tanks not popular its crap i mean your basically buying a hellcat with an upgraded gun but worse speed no turret no gun mantlet sure it has an amazing power to weight ratio BUT the top speed is 45 i mean what a joke of a tank also something i never noticed before a 350m view range. on a td with literally 1 armour with its only advantage being stealth has basically no ability to spot for itself. wow. before i saw that i thought it was bad but after seeing that this thing is awful that kinda view range works on tanks like the is6 because their never fighting at ranges beyond 200ms but on the scorpion? this stat makes no sense on this tank especially since the smaller e25 gets 10ms better view range.

Scorpion is a piece of crap. Not a good crew trainer. Not a good TD, 1mm armor. Not a good credit maker, once you are dead.

Indeed makes no sense. The rest kill 10 german tanks and get 15 consumables of the 3 varieties (all 3 in 10 battles). The German tanks have to kill 30 to get the same 15 consumables.

WG EU seems have issue with the maths. But to make a point, I will take for a spin the Tiger H and I will do in 5 battles, just to piss them off.....

This event is so screwed up... I mean German tanks are outnumbering the allied in every single game with at least 5 to 1.

I see business is as usual: other servers get a bunch of nice offers and we get jack squat.

 

Ive no real complaints the military month event was outstanding IMO earned a load of XP and credits so I'm happy.

 

The only problem is that players expected the VK to appear today QB did a video review and pretty sure he said Friday so something appears to have changed in the last day or so.

I'm going to have a go at ignoring the rewards available and playing lots of games in my Russian, Czech and Jap tanks in the hope that players concerned with the special prioritise other tanks .....

At first I was like, nah, they wouldn't be so stupid. Surely you have to kill 10 German tank in British/US/French tanks, so after killing 10 with US tank - 10 case of cola and so on. But no, just kill 10 German tank in any combination of the previousy mentioned nations...

I've tried to get German tanks for a spin today. Bad idea.
