Regarding the numbers on turrets why do you have to have 3 digits would it not be a good idea to have 2 and 1 digit numbers on turret too If I had American or British tank I’d like to have just 2 digits or 1 . I know German tanks used 3. Some nations didn’t number tanks with 3 digits like this . Also it would be good to have numbers in colours two ie red ,yellow ,blue. Can numbers be resized like the decals?

I would like the numbers to also be without the zero , like be able to have 12 or 7 on there own . Like how you did numbers on firefly vc. Different sizes and colours would be cool

I have been waiting for this for years, so I was quite excited. Now after testing, I am still happy about it, but also somewhat dissapointed:

  • on some vehicles the numbers are totally on unhistorical positions. 
  • You cannot have inscriptions AND tactical numbers at the same time
  • the above is because in my opinion WG has been lazy to re-use the inscription positions on the tank. In my opinion this should be split up so the numbers are on the right spot and you can also have inscriptions at the same time
  • must always have 3 digits. Why not possibility of 1 or 2 ?
  • Can only be white. Would be nice to be able to choose some colors like red or yellow. Would be even greater if you can make historically correct numbers for each nation, like the Germans could have a white with red outlines, or white with black outlines, things like that
  • Would be nice to also have a button to put the same number on the other position. Now there is one for every map, but then you have to do the same again for the other position

As above, I think it would be better if you see 007 if that is what you typed in, but only 7 if you didn't deliberately add the 0's. I also find the numbers a bit odd. For example I can't use 14, which makes no sense to me, and is rather annoying when it was the number one of two specialist British units. There are also some numbers I can use which make little sense to me. For example, 666 is not allowed, which I guess is for religious reasons, but surely anyone who gets twitchy about 666 would also object to 13 ? 911 is not allowed, even though it is widely used as an emergency number, but 77 is allowed, even though it corresponds to the date of a terrorist attack in London. Hitler's birthday is not allowed in American date formats, but allowed in British ones. I think the allowed/not allowed numbers list is rather poorly thought out, and should at least be published in full somewhere.

It would also help to know the list isn't extensive and there is a possibility more numbers will be added at a later date.

While you're adding more customisation options, how about some more WW2 emblems and decals? The British and Soviets could get some love; newer nations especially have a number of historical emblem options, but there's few to no historical options for the USSR and the UK. A good example of what could be added would be some of the emblems already found in some premium tanks (T-34S, IS-2 and Firefly VC come to mind) but also an inverted-colour British emblem (red-white-red rather than white-red-white). Another option is to supplement the already existent red triangle option (historically used by the British) with a circle, a square and a diamond, as well as different colours besides red; yellow, blue and white for instance. As of decals, Adding some more emblems as decals wouldn't hurt noone!

 

Also, unrelated: any chance the IS-2 Berlin's unit emblem (the red star with the bear) can be centred with the white stripe at the side of the turret? It's a bit out of place, and bothersome to look at compared to historical examples.
