Hello,

 

 

So the manticore in the game is another fake tank

 

It is actually called them Chimera 1955 and was designed to be an autoloading tank destroyer not a light tank, here are the pictures 

 

Spoiler

 

As you can see this Chimera 1955 is in the game as the manticore which Is a fake name. WG should therefore remove this light tank, but keep it in the game as a tier 10 TD, and make adjustments to stats accordingly 

 

The New tier 10 British light tank should be the RO2004

 

This light tank developed in 1985 has the same 105mm made famous by centurions 

 

3 man crew 

 

top speed 55 Kilometres per hour 

 

Block Quote

Spoiler

 

 

they made the hull of this series of tanks 

 

Spoiler

 

 

Armour is unknown but WG can do their usual gigerypokery but at least this way the manticore is made into its proper designation and this new tier 10 light has much more historical basis

 

There was an individual laser sighting system for the gunner but that doesnt need to me implemented in the game

Yes and the Strv103 was designed as a MBT, not a TD. Medium tank would be a better designation for what it was used for, but that change is not going to happen either.

I agree, british lights shouldn't have a gun in the first place.

I thought it was perfectly clear that the images of the "fake tank" were Manticore's...but I guess you've just played yourself.

People may laugh at my suggestion, but have we considered Aztec or Babylonian tanks? Sure, they might not have been 'real' in the conventional sense, but we could invent some stats.

 

Here's the first Tier X medium: The Huitzilopochtli, a sandy brown tank with armour that resemble a stone wall. Reloading system akin to a trebuchet. Gun stats as follows: 390 alpha, 268 pen, 0.35 accuracy. Tada! 

 

Heck, if we ever get tanks from Outer Mongolia, at least the term 'Mongol' will, at least be, factually accurate... Pfft.

So...does that mean it's ok to call someone "Polish noob" if they're playing badly while driving a Polish vehicle?

I'll use it wisely, and, if I get a ban, I'll contest it with a link to that reply.

After all, I can't be offensive if the offended say it's fine.

Ask yourself these questions and you'll get there.

 

  • Which is the fake tank?
  • There are photos. Which tank are they from?
  • Do both questions have the same answer? If yes, he's right; if not, he's wrong.

Dear Saxsan4

 

While I appreciate your enthusiasm please can I direct you to the search function at top right of the forum page. You can also open the search function to make it more precise. Please can I suggest you use the search function before posting your suggestions.

Back in 2019 there were at least one if not two very long threads when some of us went over possible UK light tanks in great detail (much more than you have posted here). We weighed the pro's and con's of different vehicles that were built and where each of them might fit into a tech tree based on various characteristics. We posted photographs of prototypes built and export models sold. Go find the main thread and read through it.

 

WG clearly ignored those threads because (a) English language and not Cyrillic, and (b) EU server forum and not RU server forum.

 

Whilst I very much agree with you that the UK light tanks are implemented in a deeply disappointing manner (no FV101 Scorpion or Scimitar despite hundreds being built and sold world wide), I doubt WG will alter the line now. At least not unless there is an outcry on the RU servers and I doubt very much that such a thing would occur there.
