Because I`m maybe "old fashioned" and still have hope ? I really liked the idea of this game once and had fun playing it.... maybe that comes back.... hopefully... one day.

 

Hope is important for sure.

To be quite honest, there is a lot about this game I don't like but, for some strange reason, I keep playing.

I guess it's because, at it's core, this is a great game.

And because there really isnt a good alternative I guess... But yes I have the same feeling

Lol I can't believe they keep teasing like that they must enjoy reading these threads. Literally hundreds of tanks of tanks in the game and they choose to put one that's not in the game and even put a name above it.

 

Well as I finally did bother to update CT... it's basically their "store" tanks" showcase. First time the Skopriong G was there, second time the Chrysler K was there. Clicked on it and I got an offer to "buy" it. So I suspect it's how we will know what "premium of the week" will be etc. So who knows. It might make an appearance soon if it's there.

Well ... I've met one while being tested ... over a year and a half ago ... Maybe it is the time for WG to finally release it? They released so many new "balanced" tanks that the Chieftain would no longer feel OP?

That is glorious.

 

Just to note we have been waiting so long for the Chieftain to be introduced that War Thunder is now moving on to the Challenger. As in this one -

Not the tier 7 TD. So in the time since the Chieftain has been in the game files Warthunder has brought in two Chieftains and is now working on it's successor.

They won't add the Chieftain unless they can find a way to only offer the tank in skin only. Because I know & I think every tank enthusiast will know, that tank is a beast & will just wipe the floor with most T10 tanks. So if they add it. Trust me, it will only be the skin & nothing more. Because the stats would be insulting to what the actual tank is capable of.

Yep, it might be able to travel for more than a click or two before the engine gives out. ;)

I want it, and then I don't...

 

Sure, we've got loads of stupid tanks in game, but a 2nd Gen MBT is a whole meta shift if they actually gave it IRL stats. 

 

Which they won't... because of the slavish attachment to a ten tier system. So we'll get a SuperConq with a pike nose made of paper and a cupola you can hit from three maps away. 

 

Then there's the ammo rack - in theory (which is what WoT works on, otherwise IS-3 driver would literally faint after three minutes) the two part system would make the Chieftain ammo rack invulnerable. 

 

Then, finally, arty and 40mm deck armour.

 

So, yes, would love to have it... but it'd be a sad, sad, thing to play. (much like all the other iconic IRL monsters that are total meh in game like the Tigers, Centurion, Firefly, etc)

As a playable tank or as garage eye candy?

 

I remember when it was seen in the car park garage used for one of the (German?) gaming cons and that was a sign it was coming to the game. Then when it was shown there again the following year. Then when QB put up a replay of someone playing it on the Chinese server. At this point I think I'm as likely to get a Chieftain as I am a Type 59. :sceptic:

To be fair, this tank would be no different than any other tank. It still adheres to the same contstruction Mechanics. If it were the Chieftain Mk. 10 it would be a different story, that thing would have the Stillbrew Armor, which would make a JPE100 HEAT cry. This tank is quite well balanced, and in line with the rest of the UK heavies, strong turret, good gun, good upperplate (this case only when using Depression) good VR, shitty sides and rear.

It would be better on a whole new line, Doesnt fit too well compared to the conq and caernarvon because of the mobility is actually good, where as the others a slow
