Hi there,

 

I recently cleaned up my barracks and found a rather strange looking crew trained on the UK Tier1 collector tank, the Vickers Medium Mk1. The crewmen have not one of the usual UK crew skins but rather some unique WW1 look.

 

Does anyone know where they came from? And in case they were provided with the introduction of the UK tree years ago why is the radioman missing? Was there a change in crew composition?

 

Cheers.

Maschine

It's from the "100 years of tanks" special event with the Mk.I tank.

This. In Sept 2016 we had a convoy event. Basically wheeled British lights escorting a Mark I "the first wheeled test on live". This was the crew in them. And you got to keep them after the event, as they were retrained for the tier 1 when it ended.

Oh. My. God.

 

Can you believe I completely forgot about the cars in that event? MAN, yeah...so that's where the EBRs started development. Feels like a long time ago...

The funny thing is... that after that event. Everyone wanted wheels and thought they could be a fun addition... on low tiers that is.

Ground these crew up through the Brit arty. They now sit one shotting lights in my CGC! (one in every 10000 shots that is!). WW1 crew seemed fitting for arty.
