All of those are in game concepts that a tank crew is not so likely to think about when painting their tank.

 

You are too serious, I was joking earlier :P

My two penneth Kenneth,

 

I would be tempted to buy it if there was a way to either dis-equip the cammo or replace it altogether

That's the point though isn't it you can't turn the looks of comedy tanks off any more than there's an option to not met OP tanks so saying the problem is solved by not buying it doesn't help if someone's problem is the look of the tank.

 

I haven't played the game for a bit and releases like this make me even less inclined to get back into playing a few battles. Now if it had been a Motörhead tank that may have been different.

 

Edit: Just to add one difference is that at least with this I could get a skin, hopefully, that turns it into something more pleasing to my eye.

 

True, you can't, but again I really don't think the skin is that bad. Sure, you might not want to buy it, fine, but I think it a bit much to put in the category of the "clown skin" along with the Patriot for example. One has a garish American flag emblazoned across the tank, the other has a reasonable camo pattern with the odd embelishment

 

p.s. In common with the other camo tanks, you can't paint over the PV's camo. .

The ammo costs are absolutely ridiculous for 230 alpha.

If thnk that's where the difference of opinion really comes from. To me it's as bad, if not worse, as the clown tanks. Although the camo may not be as over the top it has a theme that I just do not like being in this game and the same thought would apply even if it was music I listened to.

 

i just wonder what they'll come up with next. The have comedy tanks, they have OP tanks and they have a ready made example that combines both those elements even if they've said they have no plans to release it on the EU server.

This is my guess. Thomas the TANK engine. Ringo Star is the Commander.

Welcome to the British 20pdr, aka the coin gun, aka the credit gun, aka the bankruptcy cannon

Dmg/credit is worst iirc on the server, being half that of the IS-3...

Indeed. Because the letter S is absolutely immersion breaking. :izmena::popcorn:

Its called the bankruptcy cannon for a good reason, WG in the past claimed it was balanced as it had high pen but that's been power creeped and now need the cost per shell reducing in line with other similar pen shells.
