Hello.

I would like to see that modern digital Speedometer in the square, left-down corner, replaced by the old fassion Speedometer what was there before.

It say's so much more, actual speed of the tank, and the possible topspeed of the tank,

Besides, in WW2 there were no digital speedo-meters!!

Nor I.

Of all the things to take note of in the battle, 'arena', my speedo is not one of them. Ever.

And this is not a WWII focused game counter to popular belief. Nor is half the stuff on the UI. So there is that.

Most WWII speedometers did not say that either. And my car's speedometer goes to 260 km/h. But It can't do that I'm sure, as it's capped at way lower. And nor can most tanks in the game sadly. So is it needed? I need to know how fast I am going there and then, not how fast I could possibly go. Even the AMX 40 and the 65t don't get to their listed top speed going downhill. So it would not help that much on most tanks sadly vs the one we have now.

Yeah! And British tanks need to have the speedo read MPH, a proper measure of speed, not this airy-fairy continental kph thing.

I don't even look at the one in my car.

 

Especially on the continent, trying to dodge all those idiots driving on the wrong side of the road.
