I just finished a battle in a A-44.  A new tank for me at a bit over 20 battles so far.  At the end of the battle I see I got a Bruno's medal, which apparently is the second one I ever got.  No idea when it was the first time as this is the first time that I remember seeing it.

Is it a kind of rare medal or I was just lucky/unlucky to not have it so far. (well second time anyway).

You can hover over the medal to see what its description is, which includes its requirements. Bruno's medal is awarded for destroying 3 enemy vehicles, after you've received at least 5 critical hits and lost at least 80% of your hitpoints. So basically after you've been hit that hard, you need to get 3 killshots in. And survive the battle.

 

That's a lot of stars to align, so it's safe to say it's rare.

Best medals are ones for killing clickers. Pascucci's and the rest

I only have it once, in 20k battles, so it is probably rare.  I had it after being artied in a kv-1 and received a lot of fire damage, and the enemies who tried to kill me all failed to pen me.  In those good old times when the tank was really good.

I have one… in my KV-1. It's from the same battle I got the Raseiniai medal. It's tricky to get, as when you take that much damage you usually die, or fall back in a support role.

Ya that's one of those purely bi-product lucky scenario sort of epic medals you pretty much can't play for as such unless your brain is half baked because you would have to intentionally go into battle looking to take damage on purpose until you have 5 modules damaged and then, if your are still alive, carry on to seek out the next set of requirements which is pretty counter productive to surviving and having a good game.

 

Bruno's, Tarczay's and Billotte's are all much the same thing only with different numbers of kills being the difference but ya, they're certainly nothing I'd actively go about playing for or even know if it was on the cards. There's a few of those type of epic medals that you wouldn't play for as such and just happen when they happen amidst some crazy slug fest in which you took a beating, survived, won and did a hell of a lot of killing or damage or whatever it was needed lol.

 

The only epic medal I have left to get that is achievable without being pure luck or requiring some negative gameplay would Burda's. I never played for it before and picked up a few Yoshio Tamada's with a light tank but like the Yoshio, you have to kill 3 clickers which is always a good thing obviously, but the clicker have to be at least 1 tier higher only this time it can't be with a light tank or just get another Yoshio, it needs to be an MT, HT or TD. Now... this is something that's not on my mind and I think it's rare enough to have a battle where all 3 clickers are +1 and +2 tiers higher but I hope if I encounter this purely situation MM, that it will trigger my brain to notice and I can go about bagging this last realistically achievable epic medal... that said, if I do, then I won't have anything much to chase so, maybe it's good if I am kept waiting :)

I don't have one, nicely done OP!

 

Isn't it more difficult to get now as you can use your repair and medi kits multiple times?

I think you don't need to have the critical hits at the same time or even still in critical (orange) state when you make the kills, you just need to have had them. I think the critical hit part is by far the easiest to qualify for, the hard part is once you have all the qualifications also getting 3 killshots in 'cause you're not likely taking my risks anymore and the battle has probably been decided so everyone's shooting the last few targets.

Nope it isn´t more difficult. Well at least if you look past the fact that a single artillery hit won´t usually catapult you compfortably into bilotte/bruno medal territory anymore.

It "only" requires you to take 5 different critical hits, repairing/healing doesn´t undo the critical hit taken though.

 

Still one of the rarer medals you can get, so congrats OP :).

I only have one Bruno after all these games. And zero of the 1-up one, the Tarczay. I guess it helps if you derp around in beefy heavies a lot.
