I love how they put the amount in dollars to make it sound like more vs GBP or EUR which is what our region used to purchase the tanks. :teethhappy:

Don't get me wrong, it's a fantastic amount to have raised, but err... this is the EU server, why is it in dollars?! :teethhappy:

Hi there!

USD is the currency in which we formulate our agreements with The Tank Museum thus together with the museum we decided to express the donation amount in USD as well. The currency exchange rate between GBP and EUR is a tad volatile, thefore we chose this as the fairest option possible.

We did actually round upwards to get the amount to 70,000 USD and further help our friends at The Tank Museum.

Fair comment on how we should have also expressed the amount in EUR as its a more widely used currency in our region - now done!

Enjoyed the stream from Bovington and good that the game is raising funds to preserve all those historic tanks.

They talked about having extra money +spending it on extra pyrotechnics.

So u saw troops shoot blanks +not tanks drive.

Have to say, it was the poorest tank open day of there's ive seen.

Staff are back to wearing yellow hi viz +more advertising banners, blocking tank viewing, if u happen to get dumped in the wrong viewing area. 

09:17 Added after 3 minute

Bovington volunteer mentioned the museum being "rac museum", in response to a question to where certain tanks had gone... 

So u can see 8x different shermans, but their 1x kv, is removed from display. 

The museums been hijacked by people who have ideas about entertainment +not military equipment
