Roasted Beef sandwiches.

The French call us Rossbif anyway....

Or, alternatively, "two week's leave" the description could be "knowing that the crew will get two week's leave after this battle, they fight 5% more efficiently adding 5% speed, turret traverse, and 5% aiming time - soon be back in blighty chaps!" they may be heard to exclaim.

How about having Dame Vera Lynn as a consumeable?

Would sound mightily better than the cancelled horns from 7.0 beta I reckon.

Instead of Crew Vent British tanks should have Boiling Vessels (BV)
Every Centurion had one and it basically meant you could make Tea onboard yo tank

Perhaps "Tea Break" in the context thyat the crew had that prior to the action thus
were in good spirits.

Perhaps even "Tea and Bully beef" . For similar effect to above.

Aye, like well rested and fed or well supplied = bonus.

The Navy got rum as a daily ration, the Army only got rum if the conditions warranted it. It had to be issued under the supervision of a reasonably high ranked officer and I'm sure a doctor had to be involved at some stage.


There is still a rum ration as you say if the conditions warrant it last time i had a rum ration was in the Arctic the rum is a treacle like goo that you get a spoonfull put in the bottom of your 1 pint mug and its topped up with hot water this takes it down to about 70 to 80% proof

As a Brit i would say it would have to be Tea plain and simple hot strong with milk and sugar or Yorkshire puddings and Roast Beef


Edit yes Brit armoured vehicles have a BV boiling vessel its the gunners job to keep it topped up and ready to brew up at a moments notice his reputation hinged on how good he was at keeping his crew fed and watered a good gunner not only had to be a good shot but also a good provider of nourishment for his buddies the hot water in the BV was also used to heat our compo rations so when ever you stopped you could eat within minutes of getting parked

Well, they dropped the ball with the French, giving them coffee, instead of a croissant, or something more iconic.
So I guess they won't give the Brits tea, but give them spam instead.

In three versions: against French, Russian and German tanks. US tanks can feel safe.

Yeah, that 'treacle like goo' does ring a bell. We only got it the once and it came in huge demi-johns covered in raffia or something similair.

A box of "fair play"

Each tank takes it in turns to trade shot for shot, into each other's weakspots.

Voice overs would be "Nice shot old bean!"  "Good show!"  etc.

Complimentary commentary to the winner of the duel would be offered and no shouts of "noob!" or "unfair!" would be toleratred; "you're a very skilled young man!" "wonderful final blow there chap!" are however, acceptable.

In fact the BV is on the Loaders side on Challenger 2. Not that we will see a CH2 in this game!!

My vote is for Tea and then Hot Chocolate as i particularly liked that when on Stag.
