Kolobanov's Medal - Awarded to a player who stands alone against five or more enemy tanks or self-propelled guns and wins (this means that you can capture the enemy base by yourself when you are against five enemies and you will recieve the achievement.)
Colonel Zinoviy Kolobanov was a Soviet tank ace who destroyed 22 German tanks, 2 guns and 2 halftracks with his KV-1 in battle on August 19, 1941.


Sounds imposible -- unles if you are top heavy or super fast scout. :(

erm.... there's no legitimate and fair way to deliberately aim for kolobanov's medal....

in most cases, if a person is deliberately aiming for this medal, surely they are engaging in unfair or passive gameplay? i know the passive types arent exactly gonna be winning a place among the most impressive replays, but even so, the amount of suffering and torment most are about to recieve... i think i'm gonna just not play on the live server this weekend

how about some good medals?

like achieving a battle hero status on a victory, during which your team was out-matched 2-to-1 at some point during...?

Don't believe it for a second. I've got three of them, One in a 38(H) one in a Lowe and one in a Stug. And those were all from killing all the last 5 bad guy's!

These are not impossible to do with active gameplay.

Have 2 of these, true both with light tanks M24 and T-50-2.

The M24 battle I had no idea that there even was a Kolbanov's medal and in the T-50-2 battle I was dancing with a Tiger in the capzone for like 30 seconds untill he was set on fire and withdrew:)

I'm not saying it was easy to get them 2 medals in over 14000 battles so...:)

Good luck to all who tries for this contest.

I once got that medal with VK3601h and that was long time ago. Captured enemy based and even killed one guy who tried to stop me :)

Good luck to all who tries for this contest.

my bad feeling about the contest isnt any sort of feeling "oh no i cant possibly do it" it's the fact i know i'm gonna get so angered by people hiding, trying to stay safe while their team dies so they can get it, certainly there's a degree to which one earns the medal, i know i am among those capable of it because i have done the job more than once, but i keep my team alive, and in the instances where i've done it, i've not waited for them to find those members of my team unable or unwilling to continue to fight, have to say its more often they are unwilling, of those two..

several times i've beat the team with no help from the remaining friendlies, and once i did infact beat 5 guys alone properly, but i killed the first of the 5 mere moments before my last team-mate went down.. does that mean if i had waited for him to die and not tried to save him i'd have a kolobanov's medal? damn right... does that mean i wish that i had done that.... not for a second!

we've all seen what happens when a poweful member of the team, capable of earning kolobanov's or top gun or boelter's doesn't keep his team alive..
i just don't want to see another Tier 9 tank hide at the back "because my repair bills are aweful!" only now it's an actual competition... sport camping..

PS: i intend to and i hope others do this as well, to report those team-mates deliberately *not* helping as Unfair Play.. as for those who legitimately earn this medal, i salute you  :Smile_honoring:
