Omfg, wish it was german captured one :) but I really like that you doing something so special anyway...

I just hope that maybe for future you would organize tank fest in other smaller countries.

i can already guess return of packs with B2 740 (f) in the store, but why?

if preferential MM tanks are such a big pb as wargaming said, just WHY SELL THEM ALL after telling everyone it's bad for the game and they have to change them so they will not be PMM tanks anymore?

Does "Rhin" smells like one of the next premium tanks? ...

 

... :)

 

BTW, I wish to be in one of these Tankfests, but unfortunately all of them usually take part at locations far away from Greece.

If they're gonna spend our money doing that, why do they not just pay to help restore the one that's on display at Kubinka?

Clearly you did forget.

 

They wanted to get the one and only existing Maus running.  Nothing about making a replica.  The project died when it was found that there are no innards at all in the Maus at Kubinka so it would be less restoration, more design the whole thing from scratch.

That's because they all happen at one place in England!

I wonder if the guys from Wheelers Dealers could restore more tanks to working order. They are doing pretty great stuf with cars.

I don't mean only the annual UK Tankfest, I mean also some other tank parades/festivals which take part in other countries, all usually in North Europe or US.

If only the Russians had thought to take the wreck of the finished but partially destroyed Maus with them when they took the empty shell of the unfinished one...

Only if you give that money away.
