In the last year or so we had two new premium tanks, Pudel and Tiger 131. These are basically the standard tank in a 'historic' configuration, i.e. they both have the gun from wwII. I have both of these and both play well having been demoted a tier (more so Pudel). I like the idea of playing vehicles in their historic configuration as they just look right.


 

So why not do more? Instead of inventing premium tanks create alternate versions of actual vehicles.


 

I'd like to see...

Tiger II with the L71 gun at Tier 7 (with the Porsche turret perhaps?).

An Elfant (with bow machine gun) again with L71 gun at Tier 7.


 

Both play well at T8 but a struggle with those guns and to do well you need the later Tier guns.Creating a premium version at T7 would work.


 

I'm sure there are more that could be done in this way.


 

Maybe also, if a any vehicle is played in it's 'historic' configuration that you should be additional bonuses to recognise that you are in-effect playing with a disadvantage.


 

Thoughts?

Well, good news for you, the VK 45.03 is ingame at tier 7.

It's a Tiger II "Porsche" with a nerfed upper front plate.

Bonus fact: Porsche never designed the rounded turret, Krupp designed both turrets.

You? You barely show up.

 

I've been wondering to start an anime thread here on the off topic forums but need back up. :hiding:

 

Just saying... could be fun.

 

@ontopic: no.
