So next patch if you have 75 missions for a tank done with honors, you'll get unique camos: https://thedailyboun...flage-patterns/

 

So, how many of you are willing and able to go for this? I did the stug 75/75 already, but I'm cautious of going on because the missions do start becoming drastically more difficult and I don't want to get trapped in farming missions again for anything less than a tank. Though just finishing the SPG missions for mission skips and crew members might be worth.

 

Also, the article says "Each tank will give players a set of three patterns: Summer, Winter and Desert, that can only be applied to the respective nation of each tank." but why though? Why do we get 2 potential camo sets for ze germans and none for me to pimp out my STB-1 even further?

I've only got the first two PM tanks but after I finish a set, I like to re-do the missions I haven't achieved honours on so this is something I'll come to in time. As for whether a special camo is worth it, that's for each player to decide for themselves. I rather like the idea of having something special to show for the effort involved in acing all the missions of a set.

Do you have to play arta to get them? if yes, I wont bother and wont get them

if no, I still wont bother but I might get them since i have all mission activated to  do them with honours to get credits.

You need to play everything with secondaries for a set. Though the stug one is highly trivial to get. 

 

The thing is I did most heavy and all the med secondaries already for the aforementioned credits, so it'd just mean I'd need to grind my swede TDs, crapon people with my m40 and play my T-100 a bit.

I got the Stugg and T28 all done with honors so will get those two for Germany and American tanks. Did all T55a missions so will have the cammo for that one, but not all with honors, but that doesnt really matter since that is a German tank also.

I ... I have all the arty missions done with honors.

 

 

...

 

Got only a handful of 260 missions left without honors. Might do them at one point if I start playing the right tanks again.

Well, yeah, it's better than having a shitty medal in your service record that nobody will ever bother to check out and instead getting something more meaningful like a camo. 

 

It's just that doing the T-55a ones for yet another german camo seems a bit weirder than just having all of them give a one time use all-nation set of camoes so you can pimp out your favorite tanks.

I don't think you need to complete all secondary missions to get the set.

I think that once you complete all 75 missions then you get it for the reward tank.

When you complete all 75 missions WITH honors then you get the camo unlocked to use on all tanks in that nation (but you must pay for the camo).

More difficult to get the camo than it is the tank.

MUCH more difficult to get the camo for use on all tanks, and even then it doesn't actually give you anything (I hope they change this to allow 2-3 free applications).

WG literally never handed out special camos that way.

 

With the CW camos it was always a one time use camo you got for each nation.

I never cared about PMs and most likely never will.
And these days I don't have the time or will to play that much anyway...

I do like the American cammo though. The Stugg one isnt very interesting so won't use that much and the T55a and 260 I do not think I will get for other tanks also so no worries there. But the American is very nice. Will use that on a few of my fav tanks.

I mean i don't actively grind out the missions, i just let them run in the background and hey, cool got an extra 100k now and then.

Two sets honor done, third almost done.

Actually since i can just skip reta.... Heavy missions i'll just re- activate t-55 ones once the obj sits in my garage.

Well... you gotta remember... The German Panther M10 gets the T28 HTC camo... so 3 if you think about it.

 

But it I will try to get the T-55A at least.

I've done the Stug IV and T28 HTC with honors completely, but those camos are a bit too late, as I've already painted the tanks with regular gold purchased camos. Had I knew, I would've skipped "dressing them up". My T-55A has CW camos on it, the Winter and Summer ones at least. Again, used gold to buy a Desert camo on it. Don't have Object 260 yet and I'm not really fussed about getting it either.

Just do 75 with or without honors, you get the camo for the reward tank only. Do 75 with honors, you get it for the nation. And no.. you don't have to pay to use it. Reward tank gets their own set that is free, then one for a tank of your choice. I did not pay a gold nugget for the T28 HTC camo on my T69 on test.

A quick question, in a fit of pique I added permanent camo to my StugIV (stupid I know). I have completed all the missions for that tank (with honours) and was wondering if I will get compensated for the gold I spent when the free camo comes on line? I suspect not but I remain ever the optimist!

7 secondaries to go on the T55 now. BUT it transpires I never did ht12 anyway (and ht15 ofc) so now need a heavy to block x3.

 

Grinding my way to  vk100p but the 105k experience in the tiger P is likely to sap my will.
