What is the Kranvagn? Why was its development so turbulent? What was the solution? What on earth does Kranvagn even mean? Watch our video to find out!

It's also a WG experiment since you gave the line much more armour than it's supposed to have for no reason what so ever.:teethhappy:

No, there was a reason: So it could be a proper hulldown heavy tank and not penned just because someone tapped 2-2 :great:

So the upcoming Swedish SPGs are going to be totally OP autoloaders firing 14 shots in 48 seconds.  Great news.

Very nice video once again WG. Conclusion: The Swedes were arrogant **** that wanted to get ahead of other nations by using the same nations technology, and they failed SO HARD to do it. GG

 

Please refrain from profanities.

They also lack their historical autoloading 150mm guns, lmao

 

Honestly i would have preferred if they nerfed armor to historical levels but gave us option to use single shot 150mm, and then buff the 120mm.

a lot of the ,,nonames"japanese, swedish ,czech.french,etc ,are almoust or surely op...it s a childish atitude to add new op nonames tanks in the game...Buy Liberte ,buy Kranwagn,etc, doesn't matter that nobody knows nothing about these ufo tanks..They are better than tiger 1 tiger 2 and other stupid ultraknown warmachines.Buy them and knokout whenever you want the stupid Tigers and Panthers... Childish attitude...This remember me about a comedy where a machinegun start to fire random into one confrontation and only the germans soldiers were shot down

I have my first MOE on tiger 1 ,lowe ,kv1,T29,etc,so i have no reasons to be frustrated.And i am not frustrated.I am just sad...

WoT is first and foremost a game and while it is based on historical fact, ultimately the most important thing is to have a balanced game that everyone can enjoy. The Swedish tanks have great turret armor so they can be used in hull down positions.

WoT is first and foremost a cash cow and while it is based on crumpled blueprints, ultimately the most important thing is to have an unbalanced shop that primarily rich can access. The *insert E-25/ScorpG/AMX/BlackEdition, more auto-loader lines & different era technology* tanks have great unbalancing potential so they can be used to ruin a WW2 game.

It was a very interesting video showing the projcets development. The swedes was really thinking "outside the box"!

 

Their technical solutions was indeed unique and it really adds a new dimension to armed warfare.

It is very enjoyable to play the swedish techtree cause it adds new possibilities playing the game.

 

As always the the swedish techtree will certainly not suite everyone,  but for the players with a certain playstayle they will be a dream to play.

First of all, video uploaded on WoT-EU website 20 days after the youtube release, just amazing, late as always.
Second, If WG has buffed the tanks armor to make it more balanced (thus refraining from Historical Accuracy) why didn't you add 1mm (ONE MILIMETER) of armor on the sweedish TDs so that tier 6 SU100 with a retarded 122mm gun with 175mm of penetration can autopen it and tier 10 FV/T57/AMX50B/T110E5 with cca 250mm (or 320> with gold shells) but with 120mm gun can't?
I know that the overmatch was supposed to be changed, but srsly? Just remodel it with 1mm more armor and the problem is done for tier 9 and tier 10TDs, tier 8 is impossible to change since its armor is too low...
