Whoever came up with the EBR type "tanks":

Here's an idea.

Make rollerskates with turrets.

Formula 1 cars with turrets. Doing 400km/h. Were you have to lead a week in advance to hit it.

I mean, since we are going in the grotesque and ridiculous direction, why not?

Then flying tanks.

And submarine tanks.

And next we have the infantry tanks. Rambo type guys holding a 2000 lb turret.

Then we have the insect tanks. A turret moved by two million ants.

And cell level tanks. A hive cell tank made up of zerg cells with a single consciousness forming a turret and ammunition. Who float out into nothingness when shot at. Who needs armor when you can dodge like a Neo?

Of course these tanks are as well documented as the EBR tanks. A Ukranian pothead scientist once drew a sketch on a napkin of all of them.
 

The EBR gocart tanks took this game from borderline - far into the Cirque de Soleil zone. Grotesquerie of the highest order.

The fact that:
 

  1. a tank shooting that caliber ammo 
  2. at that speed
  3. on wheels
  4. would make a triple flip from the recoil

 

doesnt seem to bother the development team in White Russia. They are too drunk to know how physics work.

Your ignorance is staggering.

 

Here, a little help:

how salty

 

but guess you forgot about the part that ebr90 etc was mass produced and so far im aware they didnt do flips by firing their gun

 

anyways to the question who came up with EBR type tanks those were the french;

amd, lynx, ebr75, ebr90 were produced/designed by panhard

hotchkiss ebr was a prototype, didnt went into production

 

 

Spurtung already posted panhard EBR 90 so i will just post panhard ebr75/amd178/lynx   *(upgraded lynx version, also called ERC-90 sagaie)

Fair enough.

 

Does it say anything about the laser like accuracy they have shooting high explosives at moving tanks at a 90 degree angle at full speed? The suspension must be better than a Lamborghini?

Way ahead of its time.

Time to rename WOT to World of GoCarts.

How salty? What a salty question.

nice pics, it seems to me wg has modeled a bit wrong as most seem to have less empty space behind the wheels in real exempt the AMD 178

No, he's so happy thst he can't illustrate his happiness to use. (Lol) 

And actually WVs are no longer a big threat, because players learned how to overmatched them.

I saw an FV 4005 hitting one from the range of 450 m.... with 0.40 accuracy and gold shell! (Bad shell velocity!!)

Another day, another pointless WV whine thread by a player which the WV's are designed to be able to outplay.

dont worry OP

this forum is completely disconnected from real perception of the game.

 

yes, these vehicles might have existed in world but the way how are they implemented in the game is just stupid.

and i understand the wg to have some gimmicks so the tech trees would be different but this crap just promotes troll gameplay.

I dont mind skilled players playing well in them but i mind trolls who are able to drive to enemy base, spot everything including arty and get back with still manageable HP.

or driving on hilly terrain 400 meters away from you and still hit majority of the shots just by autoaiming = no need to pay actual crap about it except driving like moron

 

so yes, wheeled craps piss majority of population off, there are these "cool" forumites who always try to play devils advocate or just pretend how the wheeled craps are balanced...

No need to pretend as facts speak for themselves. None of them are overperforming. 

 

Also, if you let wheels in your base and out, aint that the faultof your team. Just kill them. Its not that hard.

Not a big fan of wv tbh, playing them or playing against them. Having said that I unexpectedly 2 marked whatever the tier 6 WV is yesterday, and I play like crap in it. So the standard of play in WV (at least at tier 6) must be pretty goddam atrocious.

If you are going to bring the realism card to a discussion about an arcade game then you are on a loser.

I think the EBRs are annyoing little buggers, not as annoying as arty tho. 

Haven't played enough after my long break yet to know how to counter those critters, so i guess it's a L2P issue and on my 'things to-fix in my WoT gameplay' list. I guess playing one myself could help in that endeaveur.

 

It's not on the very top tho, there's still the other thing i have to take care off, and that's to figure out, why my T54ltwt explodes once i leave the spawn and move 100m in any direction.
