Hello folks,

thought it would be fun to to discuss tanks in game and what ones you like best and the ones you like the least.

Would like to also discuss some things like new premiums and all that.

Maybe talk about some tanks you want to see become a premium or added to the normal  tech tree.

Just enjoy yourselves and try not to get too intense about what tanks are better.

I think the medium III should be taken out and replaced by another tank, it's such an awful tank and doesn't give you a feel for what the Matilda is like.

The tank that could replace it should be the tank before the Matilda II, the Matilda I.

Considering how much of a difference the Medium III has gameplay wise compared to the Matilda, maybe it should be replace with the first version of the Matilda, the Matilda I.

I've been lurking for some time, but yeah, this probably will devolve into someone arguing over whether the panther is better than the sherman lol

One of the tanks I'd love to see added to the tech tree is the L3 with both the 13,2mm Breda Model 1931 and Solothurn 20mm anti-tank rifle.

L3 looks interesting, I always thought it was a British tank from seeing it a few times, but apparently not.

Yeah, we Brits are crazy but we aren't crazy enough to design something like the L3 haha. To be serious though it is an impressive Italian Tankette for the role it was made for.

Speaking of crazy brits, how about the praying mantis?

Speaking of the Matilda II though, that tank needs to be reclassified as a Heavy.

Super heavy more like, the amount of damage you can block in it is crazy, but fun when the enemies panic once you start moving towards them.

Some of the new premiums look quite interesting too, especially the Excalibur.

I'm looking forward to the Chimera, a 5" gun on a Medium is just mental.

Will probably buy the Excalibur, it just looks nice, well to me anyways, and will probably buy the aufl panzer once videos go up about it, may become another german premium to add to my list of ones I wanna get.

Excalibur does look weird to me, not even sure why someone would even design a monstrocity like that and not get put in front of a firing squad.

Does look rather silly, will give videos on it a watch once the tank is release to make my decision on buying, but looks quite fun to play with.

Indeed, I think it was designed like that though to fit in the Blackburn B-101 Beverley, with the option of equipping 8 Swingfire ATGMs which would have gone on the back (logically).
