First of all ı am very curious about military engineering, tanks , gun systemc etc. from my childhood.Apporoximately 4  years ago ı had a chance to see Michael Wittmann documentary on National Geographic.ı have every photos of him ; ı respect him so much ; He is a HERO for me.Then ı saw game videos  by chance , began game.From the beginning ı have promise myself ,' One day ı destroy 7 tanks ,and ı get a Wittmann Medal'.I destroyed 7 tanks ı push ESC nervously to see my medal , but ı saw a Boelters Medal . I am so dissapointed and thinkig to give up game . my question WoT game makers will correct this mistake and return back this holy medal???

It wasn't removed because he was in the SS.
It was removed because he was a member of the NSDAP, which by international edicts was deemed an institution responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity. Big difference tbh.

But yeah, there was a really really long thread about it back when they changed the name
