never did the mission so i didn't get the tank, and u see so many out there in the battles. i always use wikipedia, instead of wiki wot to see characteristics of wot tanks, but i'm a little confuse here. wich exactly is the tank we have in the game right now?

the closest i could find is this, 

  • Model 1969 (also called T-34-85M) - This was a refurbishing program introducing the new R-123 radio set, 'starfish' road wheels similar to those on the T-54/55 tank, night driving equipment, drivetrain improvements, repositioned or removed smoke canisters to make a space for additional 200-litre external fuel tanks and a ditching beam at the rear. An external fuel pump was added to ease refueling."

built in 1969? :facepalm:

Why would the year, in which it was build historically, matter in an arcade pixel tank game?

It is a good sealclubbing tank.

 

That's all you need to know frankly speaking. :)

Because the "69" could be interpreted as a dirty expression by the forums rules and get censored as it happens with the WT Frack - E 100 :harp:

I agree with the OP. Clearly the improved radio will give you an obvious, unfair advantage over your opponents. :izmena:

Dont confuse real life (wikipedia details) with WoT details. The T34-85M in game was a prototype made to have enhanced armour, but its suspension failed and only one prototype was produced. Why WG called it the "M" is anyones guess.

Stands for "Murica" as capitalism is failure, soviets marked the fails with M for short. :hiding:

Nope.  It was an attempt to uparmour the T-34 which was dropped in favour of the T-34-85.  IIRC they never got as far as putting a whole one together.  It's listed as T-34M on Wikipedia.

Keep using Wikipedia for history, fluff, call it what you want, - but for WoT tanks info I'd suggest to rather use tanks.gg instead.

If you'd had a quick look there, you might have noticed one main special characteristic of the in-game M-version, which is the 75mm upper front plate (instead of 45mm on the plain version).

That's a significant armor boost.

 

Anyway, history's cool and useful, but game info is much more helpful if you wanna know more about in-game stuff. :)

so you are basically saying that we should trust what info wg is feeding us, instead of using proper sites to check if they were real or not? i'm likely to trust the real wikipedia site, then the fake wiki wot bull$hit

Not at all. What we are saying is there are 2 distinctly different tanks discussed in the OP.

The in-game one was never made other than as a prototype. Check it out in game (if you have one) by clicking on "vehicle characteristics" and read the info about its development. 

Wikipedia describes a different tank developed years later.

Why people cannot do a little research of their own instead of jumping to conclusions, beats me.

Not to mention...who cares how they were in reality if that's not how they're implemented in the game?
