Hello

 

I used to think the BT-42 (a finnish modified BT-7) was carrying a 76mm howitzer, but recently, i noticed i had a 10.5 inch english howitzer (between 90 and 100mm), the one fitted on the Alecto tier IV english td, so i thought it's strange that the BT-42 is not in the game yet, besides it's quite a famous one. 

 

 

Is there anyway that WG see's this or am i believing in "not-going-to-happen" things again ?

It's 114.4 mm to be exact.

Incorrect, the Alecto carries 3.7 inch howitzer, 25 pdr gun or 6 pdr gun. The gun BT-42 uses is actually the exact same gun the Bishop / FV304 uses as their top gun.

We Finns lack unique tank designs to the point that Finnish branch will never ever happen most likely.

 

The chances for the BT-42 are very low; basically only hopes are one of these:

 

1) As a Finnish premium vehicle (most probable options tier 5 LT or tier 4-5 TD), with all nation specific features like crews and everything, but there won't be actual Finnish line, so the Finnish TT has nothing but a few premiums. Think like the Polish Blyckawica (or whatever it even is) on WoWs.

 

2) German premium tier 5 LT / tier 4-5 TD; until recently most probable option, but still very unlikely because I don't imagine this being a very high priority at all

 

3) Russian premium tier 5 LT / tier 4-5 TD; preferably not as it would cause controversy, then again it still makes somewhat sense because of BT chassis

 

4) Premium tier 5 LT / tier 4-5 TD for "universal" tree (recently mentioned tree with tanks from minor (when it comes to unique tank designs) nations all around the world, a probable a spiritual successor to the EU tree; not sure if it is actually going to be a thing, I think its so far just roughly ideas); most probable option

 

5) Same as above, but as a standard tank; way more unlikely, as there are basically no other unique Finnish tank designs (other than attempts on fitting a 20pdr gun from the Charioteer on the Comet and a SPG based on T-55 from 80s) and it is kinda unique so it makes sense as a premium

 

Chances for it are so low that I won't really bother to even think that the BT-42 will see any kind of light of day in this game, tbh. I do kinda want it, as it would be hilarious to play and just to have...muh Finnish tank in the game, but then again, tier 4-6 are already disgustingly overinflated with derps so I'm not really sad if the BT-42 never gets introduced. There are still some branches/tanks I would rather see before it.

This tank?

You can get it by installing the Official Girls Und Panzer mod.

It'll replace the model of the BT-7 Artillery with that of the BT-42. (collission/hit model doesn't change)

10.5 Inch = 266.7mm

 

Sure that's not a mistake?

Wait, a direct-fire FV304 with 37hp/t and 50km/h top speed? :amazed:

 

Yeah ... I'd quite like that for .. uh .. historical reasons ... too. :hiding:

If I remember correctly, it had awful mobility. That new turret increased weght significally and was key reason why the tank failed.

Ah, I'm much less interested in a direct-fire Bishop. Thanks for ruining my dream. :(
