Just bought an SU 130 PM in the standard (cheapo) version.

The offer says that it comes with camo but I can't see any camo bonus in garage.

Any thoughts?

If it's the Snow Leopard style. It's a preset style you need to add, so check that tab for it.

If it's naked then you should have your dress waiting in the wardrobe for you.

Got it.  Many thanks for that.  Why on earth don't they make it ready-painted?  How many players will work that one out?

Who needs a dress when you have snow leopard body paint?

No idea. For awhile you had tanks like the Patton KR etc that had a locked style. I suspect since customization is in focus atm. They want to give people the option to use it, vs forcing it.

Maybe, but I've been playing for 7 years and would never have worked it out without your help.  I wonder how many new players would just go stock or pay for camo, without realising they had a free camo skin?

Great TD, by the way.  Bit slow, but great gun, great view range and invisible.  Much easier to play than the Skorpion.

SU 130 reminded me that I hadn't played a Soviet TD in ages.

So I took out my SU 85I.  My, that one is a little devil.

I mean, it calls it on the Premium Shop page the "exclusive Snow Leopard style". Similarly the Kanonen 105 Ultimate one (since the base package doesn't have the style) refers to it's unique style as the "Black Panther style". Nowhere does it call it a camo, so from my perspective it should be fairly obvious.

play a bit more till the gun starts behaving like a true russian gun... Dunno, imho it's much worse than skorp. Very hard to do anything but redlining.

 

also, no clue where they measured that top speed; only time when I managed that was when going downhill in himmel. But then, the duck does 50km/h and it's a light tank, so all is fine :P

Who needs a dress when you have snow leopard body paint?

Because WG realized that some people don't like skins on their tanks (like the Patriot or Liberte) and made them optional.

Fairly obvious to you, maybe, not to me.  I doubt that any new player buying a premium would have a clue.

Gun seems to be working okay so far, and the camo (sorry, I mean style) is holding up too.

Speed is a bit wet I agree, but I've seen worse.

for something advertised to go 65(?), I swear most of the time it does under 40 at full speed...

It can actually do 65 but you need a good run up to get going. :)

If you don't see it, the camo is doing its job.

SU-130 PM has such a good camo, I cant even find it in my garage.

 

Maybe it's because I don't have one though.

 

Why am I even writing this.

I won this tank in the marathon and I have a love-hate relationship with it :P:P

When the gun is not trolling you, oh what joy and bliss. But on the other hand, when it is trolling me I want to throw the laptop out the window, hence the love-hate :P

It is my 2nd most played tank, as at the time I got it was my only TD,  and I finished a lot of TD missions with it, also it is a nice credit maker. I rarely need to pull the skill 2 key.

Also, when it is top tier, oh boy...its alpha hurts a lot ;)

I have never seen the SU-130 with applied Snow Leopard camo.
Not because players can't find the camo in the options but because nobody likes to use the white design in all three "seasons".

As a customer I welcome the capability to customize the look of a premium vehicle.
(Unlike the Scorpion G).

1. What I am missing, is the capability to decide, in what environment I can use the actual white design. I 'd use it for sure in winter and desert.

2. I would like to see a revised "Snow Leopard" camo for the summer / woodland.
   Just like what the smart cat does.

3. It would also be nice to have it as a winter camo for 3 different tanks.
   (In the example #1 i'd have one spare camo to use)

The Snow Leopard camo is well made and deserves it to be used.
But sorry to say that, in the actual release it is just a worthless item in the depot.

The same goes for the Husar on the polish 50TP Prototype - barely seen ingame - only one color for all 3 landscapes. Not compatible with other tanks.
