however unlikely to spot him here in forums, it is still possible. I wonder if some current/former tanker plays this game

Many I think. Knew few Finns fe. Plenty of countries with mandatory service. Some people have to be serving with tanks.

I drove a variety of pusser's battlewagons in my time as a bridge watchkeeper in the RN, including aircraft carriers but unfortunately, no tanks - very limited seakeeping abilties on most of them :)

As Sfinski said, plenty of countries have or have had mandatory service, I spent time in the air force my self, didn't drive a plane though, but a blue Volkswagen Passat, but I was around plenty of tanks on various occasions.

I drove Kolohousenka in the army and I liked it so much that I bought it for civilian use after retirement.

Anything can be a plane if you find a big enough drop

Loads,

i know a couple, seen some in the forum,

but also think about it several European countries have conscription, lots of those will be tankers.

first: are you new? you a replying to the forum hamster as you take him seriously!

 

second: which real life tankers are you asking... the real real ones? I know only 1 in game.. (I did my mandatory military service in a tank battalion but never even saw one in motion)

or are you asking the guys... "I DROVE TONKS IN REAL LIFE!! THIS IS crap!! REAL TONKS ARE SO MUCH DIFFERENT! DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT REAL BATTLE IS!!

If you ask the latter, yeah.. there are a couple hundred extreme tankers in the forum only.

I've driven, commanded and even shot at real tanks. Most of my clan have tracked vehicle experience of one sort or another.

 

No, the game is nothing like real life.....
