Has someone written a guide for this ? I mean aside from the fancy customisation for cosmetic reasons ?

 

I mean how these camo's change the concealment value in game ?

 

I've been having a play around in the garage and this is what it says:

 

Meds: "+3 bonus to camo value when applied to the *HULL* of the tank"

TDs: "+4 bonus to camo value when applied to the hull of the tank"

 

Sure enough if you apply 1 camo to the hull of tank/TD, the game reports +3 or +4 to concealment. But is that how it's supposed to work ?

or is it supposed to be +1 to concealment for each of the 3 parts of the tank ? (or +2 for each part of a TD)

 

Given that I have 3 free sets of gift camo, does it really mean i can just apply 1 to the hull of 3 different tanks and still enjoy the in battle camo bonus ? Seems a bit odd, no ? or is it a bug ?

 

Sorry if this has come up before. I couldn't find anything.

As long as you have camo on the hull, you can have paint on the rest. As paint alone won't give you a bonus.

 

So no, you don't need camo on the gun or turret. So on low tiers and gathered up the gun camo to get more sets. As tanks like the T7CC and Light Vic don't even get visual camo on their guns, or it's to small to even notice it's there. And on some it just looks better without it.

 

I suspect it's done like that to get the "custom" part out. As if you have transparent camo on the hull, you can toss paint on the rest and still get the bonuses you want. As I did on my T-44-100 to name one.

Hi!

Please Allow to paint all tier tanks, or just T55A. Ty.

I saw my first pink LÖWE last night.. and another one with BLACK paint with transparent camo on it..

I thought pink was ok.. a giggly tank.. but the black one with came was looking good.. really good..
