Welp, it's finally here. No uncamo'd version, even though i was gonna buy this one, but still it would have been nice for the community to offer the simple version aswell. Guess they're back to "Buy muh camo tenk then get free switch to uncamo'd" type of thing.

Its not a fantasy tank. the Swedes used this for years. 

 

The only think fantasy about it is the paint and the heavy metal crew... 

 

still going to buy it. out off all the tanks released been looking forward to this one.

Also i bet the cre voices aren't those of sabbaton, would have been nice to make the crew Strv 81 Sabbaton ONLY, leaving the tank itself free for medium training, and have the special crew with only English crew voices of the Sabbaton band. Can i has job at ideas management now? (just kidding)

 

As I understand they are the actual voices (one ofc) of the band.

 

Is a swedish tank but they talk in english.

 

I love the critical hit "You are kidding me?" :teethhappy:

They could actually introduce 40 of those premium tanks and I wouldn't be against it. I dont care if it has a clown camo or some totally whacky crew, if the model is at least somewhat believable. (no animu tanks, kthx)

 

As this is a tank, which ties in pretty well with the existing t8 mediums and is not gamebraking like a defender, by all means, if you like it than go ahead and throw some money at WG. 

 

I don't really care that much about crewvoices, but since this thing is irrelevant to crewtraining anyway, (who needs to train a swedish med crew anyway and isn't there already the t6 premium med?) this is actually one of the few premiums, where a non removeable crew would have made any sense.

It would be awesome if he said something like "They killed Tommy!", but then again, it wouldn't work if you split the crew.

Agreed with all but the clown camo point. While I don't mind fictional camouflages either, I mind if they go too far, which up to now only really goes for the Patriot and the Liberte.

I don't really mind the Defender's camouflage, or the Skorpion G, Mutz and now the Primo Victoria, in any case.

 

And yes, I believe wacky crews for premiums may actually be a good approach for Wargaming to take. Because nobody is bothered by them as long as they do not affect gameplay.

Edit: The article about the tank has been posted on the WoT portal. The crew (commander) has the Sabaton voiceover so the second poll question will be removed.

For this kind of inappropriate posts you can leave the Forum for a long time. Final warning.

Unlike the Patriot and the Liberte this one doesn't look too bad. The colours are rather muted and it's not all that fare removed from the sort of thing real life crews occasionally painted on their tanks.

I like the tank, though it should be a brit premium, but I could happily live without the rest.

 

And the day the Valkyria tanks are introduced is the day I delete WOT.

The fact I have a one in my garage speaks for itself.

Not bothered about the paint.  I have on in my garage waiting for me to get home. 

 

in fact my all my Brit tanks have the desert clown paint on.  This is no different really, 

 

However, I hated the Patriot and AMX 49 point jobs, was quite vocal in fact, but this i can live with it

There's only mid-tiered meds on the line so I'll go with "Meh". Rather pointless as it is, I say.

Agreed. This tank is not really offending in regards to camouflage.

 

Edited the post you quoted for more clarity, though.

 

Edit: And this one, because my English clearly sucks.

If I could do mods, I'd make one in which the idle engine sound for this tank would have some of their songs as background noise. It would rock to have this tank start capturing a base and play music for the teammates :bajan:

 

Yeah, I know, ok...
