Started the American tree now, since I got the E100. Did pretty well in the level 4 tank: [Linked Image]

Not that I know of? I created my own for my kids and Rand joined us.

The Sheridan in WOT is actually the first Sheridan prototype. That's why it looks different. Some of the tank lines are completely made up by WG like the Polish heavies or Chinese TDs.

I think that's incorrect, the following is a pic of XM-551 "pilot #12"

True, or sometimes they take speculative "blueprint" tanks like the E100 and make them as if they could plausibly exist. Others like the IS7 were prototypes and a number were made but never accepted into service. I don't really care one way or another, it's an unrealistic tank game, or otherwise all the tanks played would basically be meds because most heavy tanks were either impractical that offered nothing over medium/MBT's or outright failures in real life..

I've seen one picture that looks more like the WOT model. [Linked Image]

Thought I would revive this thread. Playing in gravity mode (moon gravity) is hilarious.

Tog II = UK "weiner dog" tank. designed to be extra long for crossing trenches.

the TOG II is max 14kph in reg mode, will go about 50kph in gravity mode.. you can do mid air surfing moves in some of the light tanks going around 100.

In the screenshots just killed a higher tier russian tank then spotted this big su-100y tank destroyer.. the Tog II is among the heaviest tier 6 tanks so its fun to belly flop on a Tank Destroyer from off a cliff.
This particular tank destroyer despite looking big and heavy. is low armor metal box with very high damage cannon.
typically 3x the damage of the cannon on the Tog II

Been playing since Beta. Took a couple year break after the actual game came out but playing since. It's an interesting and frustrating game.

Can be, yes. @Rand has gotten quite good, definitely the MVP of our group for sure. Still, it's fun, though some of the recent rebalancing has brought with it both good and bad. Some stuff doesn't make sense, like bounces that should never bounce for example and they've added some pretty wild tanks like the Annihilator now, Dracula...etc.
