Since we are getting all these nobody-cares factions that barely took part in any conflict, when are we getting Finnish STUG, t-55m Matti, t-72mPäiv etc

when enough Finnish players have paid for enough Premium Accounts to fund a Finnish module on Serb's moonbase I guess

So are we getting tanks that Finland used not Finnish tanks surely?

You mean like "tanks x nation used in the war" , im not asking for a tech tree.

Pretty sure we have the polish t-34's etc ingame, favourism at best

I care about those so called "nobody-cares factions" much more than literal, uninteresting clones of existing vehicles, even though I am Finnish by myself. And I am certainly not the only one who is interested more about unique vehicles than...clones. While WG has done a lot of questionable decisions, they also happen to know that majority of the community cares about branches with unique tank designs more than ones with clones. That is the exact reason that why the Polish tech tree got delayed so much, as it was originally intended to come as early as 2016 (!), but it was meant to feature mostly Soviet clones at higher tiers.

 

The only Finnish vehicle that would anyhow interest me is the BT-42, mostly because how iconic it is and it would be somewhat unique (and no, it isn't like BT-7A; BT-42 has a much bigger gun). WG could make the BT-42 a tier 5 premium LT/TD, and then implement a few other premiums like Finnish Stug or ISU-152. However, a whole branch is not needed for now when there still are a lot of tank branches that would be way more interesting and unique, such as Japanese TDs or British 2nd HT line.

 

Also lol @ suggesting a T-72M for WoT, lmao

Or.. they could just allow us the flexibility of moving the historically relevant tanks from one tech tree to another, giving us the chance to recruit national crews, equip the proper camo patterns and insignia (yes, I know), and possibly the option to equip historically accurate modifications on them.

Care about Polish far more than finnish tanks fe. while being a Finn. 

 

We didn't have anything that isn't already in the game. 

 

What WG could do is give some Finnish insignias or something that you could put on Stug or something and boom, there ya go, Finnish tank.

We COULD have a finnish commander though.

There pretty much isn't anything else but the BT-42, and Pz. IV. Ausf J that could be implemented. Ausf. J would be just a worse Pz. IV. Ausf H though, unless you do stuff like raise DPM to compensate for slower turret turn.

Cus your tech tree would be to much of a copy cat tree. Thus why we get the current nations first. And barely took part? Finland had their fun up north vs Russian with the Winter War etc. But using mostly tanks we already have in the game in different variants. Italy had their conflict in Africa. Using tanks mostly on the low end of the tech tree. But still new tanks. Polish? Well they did not use much tanks after Poland fell, since they could not make them. But they fought for other nations instead. Inc mine. And was one of the first to take back a town from the Germans alongside the Brits. So I would not say... Barely.

No, let's pick a country with some original developments in mobile warfare, Belgium for example:

Serious answer - from what I've seen (on this forum and the regular blogs, I'm not a tank buff), there aren't enough Finnish tanks to warrant a new tree without a lot of credibility-straining paper designs but there's no reason why WG couldn't introduce a few premiums with appropriate badging.

 

They've already done it with the AC-1 and AC-4 (Australian tanks) and the up-coming Centurion 5/1 RAAC is the same deal, given that RAAC means Royal Australian Armoured Corps. and the removed mudguards are taken from photographs of tanks used by the Aussies in Vietnam. I'd certainly be interested in a StuG III G with concrete armour.

 

The only real problem is where to put them in the tech trees. Warships doesn't seem to have a problem with a one-ship tree (Poland) but Tanks seems to want to avoid that wherever possible. An "other nations" tree feels disingenuous, almost as though those tanks are being included as an after-thought.

New French tier 2 premium?

 

 

 

N.B. While Vespa is an Italian company, these 150 TAP's were made in France by the French licensed assembler, ACMA.

highly modified tanks are the same btw guise. And again I said no tech tree but tanks since we are getting boring copy paste t-34's with markings from a country that got overrun in the first week of the war . just lol

 

And premiums are a thing. Throw them in the russki/swede tree then

I thought the delays with the Polish line were due to problems in adapting the graphics to cope with the horsed cavalry that will constitute Tiers 1 - 4.
