Hello,

 

Why Frontline reward camo only Western Front (France, UK, USA and Sweden) have their own country emblems, while the others have the russian red star emblem ?

I tried to place my 3rd bonus camo Spoils of War on E50M german tank and it has russian star emblem. And same russian star emblem is on all other tanks from Spoils of War, Italy and Japan too.

Same for Eastern Front, they also have russian star emblem USSR, Poland and China but except Czech Tanks, they have their national emblem.

 

Thanks

Because the German tanks appear to be the spoils of war, hence the name of the camo.  As in after nazi Germany fell their tanks were seized and used by the Soviets.

 

I love this camo above all the other.  Tried it on my Löwe (looks fab) but I decided to put it on my leKpz M 41 90 mm as that is my most used Jerry premium.

There are no eligible Polish tanks for reward camo from Frontlines.  No Tier VIII premiums and no Tier X.

 

You can't put the capture camo on a Chinese tank.  The second prestige camo will fit.

 

The whole point of the camo is to show an Axis tank as though it has been captured.  You're right that it's not just Germans, so you could stick it on your Progetto or STA-2 or whatever.

Because Czechkoslovakia was a Warsaw Pact country I suppose.  They didn't use the Soviet star AFAIK.   It'd be a bit of a waste to put that camo on a Czech tank.

 

It might instead be sensitivity over the Prague Spring.

I understand the thinking and the reason for having the Soviet star and banner on theses “captured” tanks.

i have all three “prestige” camo sets and they look great. And from patch notes 1.0.2 it seems all camos will work on T6 now too!

 

But since the camos are so nice, it would be great if WG would patch it so we could run the camo without Russian markings.

How many Chinese tanks did the USSR “capture”? Why a Russian star on my Type 59?

 

(Who am I kidding, they’ll make us pay 2000 gold for removing the emblems from camo...)

 Customization

Ever since the evolved customization system rolled out, you’ve been vocal about introducing new functionalities for a wider selection of tiers. And there you have it: starting 1.0.2, paints and style sets become available for Tier VI tanks and absolutely all Tier VIII vehicles. Initially, these were only available for Premium Tier VIII vehicles and Tier X tanks. Moreover, you will be able to customize Tiers VI with the arrival of the CT2 or with the release. On top of that, the Garage is getting a separate space where you can customize the tank exterior. The specially adjusted lighting it has provides a better overview of how the paint, emblems, and camo you apply will look on the battlefield. Check it out by clicking “Exterior” in the Garage.
