Cool, love these tidbits of history. 

 

Also, based on the article, I guess we can draw the conclusion that Russian, British and German wheeled vehicles will be next to be introduced? :B

So, sooner or later, we are going to have in the game more wheeled tanks/armored cars from more nations.

 

Everything new in the game is welcomed.

I like those little history reads.

 

But it has to be said: my high school history teacher would have had a heart attack seeing a source link to wikipedia xD

yes. as long as they keep them in check. for now the French ones seem to be a bit over the top regarding reward for playing them well (they won't do anything for bad players, but really good players will excel in them massively. Great scout-players will rape whole battles with those things - dmg done and scouting over the top while having fun)


but …. like I said, if they keep them in check I also would be happy. And couldn't wait for SdKfz 232 :D

Very nice write up on the history but... now we have them in the tech tree those who had a the chance to get a code for to try out the premium one now have the advantage over those who did not get the code, just got my first wheeled vehicle and have no idea how to play it, got a slight bit of spotting damage, absolutely no real damage an the gun is to pew pew to do anything anyway, just a fun go cart for a quick game.

 

I'll probably be tempted for the prem version, although god knows why?

 

Ok two games in it now, and it has absolutely no value over tracked vehicles, excitement over, and the auto aim function does not work, plus that feature should be on all LT's.

Grabbed the tier 6  Panhard AMD 178B put in a decent crew so I'm starting with BIA and concealment and have sixth sense.

Painted it for the extra camo effect.

Equipment Rammer and ? thats where I hit a problem.

Usually with a low tier light until I get the feel for it I throw on a camo net and Binoculars.

Play it active and passive see what worked and then change a few pieces of equipment.

 

Binoculars cannot be fitted to this vehicle indeed they cannot be fitted to any of the wheeled vehicles now in the game.

Sure its probably a waste to put them on something that will never stop moving but its equally pointless to use a camo net and really stupid to equip a spal liner but those are allowed.

What if you are just short of equipment its better to have the option to add binoculars rather than no equipment.

 

Looks like you do not want anyone playing these as anything other than an active scout flanker even if with crew skills and equipment they would not be awful as a spotter.

I will probably just go with Rammer Optics and either Vert Stabiliser or maybe Vents.

Would have been interesting to experiment though.

So far I haven't seen an answer to the most important question yet: can the wheeled vehicles jump across the bridge gap on Westfield? :ohmy:

The design of vehicles in armored warfare was decided a long time ago, it was tracked vehicles, even for troop transport. Huge guns on wheeled speed demons it was not.
