Anything else than an article? A female crew for example?

See that would be a premium tank I would like to buy, instead of yet another fantasy tank.

And, contrary to the Mauerbrecher the story is true and relatable. Even without bicyle ^^

Nice story. If only large medkits were available in real life...


Although, I think WG has completely forgotten that today is international women's day, and is trying to make up for it somehow...

Totally expected a mission to earn this famous warrior as a tank commander (with extra repair skill). As someone else said, it seems like an afterthought, international women's day deserves more than just a bit of history and that's it! I suspect the same lack of attention will befall the Women's World Football Tournament, no special game event for that I'm afraid (that's a dare towards WG!!!!)

 destroyed German positions, and even took out a self-propelled gun

 

For some reason this single sentence made me smile and cheer for her with both fists raised up.


I think I need to take a break from WoT...
