I’ll keep your logins going fella :slight_smile:

Thx matey but I should be home tonight

Damn it! I finally got the APFSDS (sabot) rounds for the Tier 6 Gepard - yay! Or rather… awww.

You’re only allowed to carry 40 rounds of it! Apparently this was realistic as they only carried 20 rounds of it in external magazines for each barrel.

Prevents me from turning my SPAA into a TD with an insane turret speed. Still, just managed to take out a Leopard 2K and a Leopard 2A4 :smiley:

So I decided to drop 2,700 GE on giving my Bagel Panzer (Begleitpanzer 57) a Talisman (+100% RP) to stack with my premium. Get ~750RP for capturing a point now :smiley:

Anyway, burned through a couple of boosters last night and now I have this…

There’s double points for squadron activities between the 11th and the 27th of this month :slight_smile:

Perhaps we might team up where we can? I am also looking at the US ATGM unit. The Russian cruiser could be good too. Took the ATGM for a test drive yesterday, it can fire a 2-shot salvo almost instantaneously! :open_mouth:

Ooooo.

Yeah i didnt know what i was doing when choosing so i thought as i play tanks more (sorry Pete…please dont hurt me :)) ill go for that one.

But sounds like they are here to stay so when we have finished one, we can go and research the others too

Yeah, they’re here to stay! I’m looking forward to what they might bring out for ze Germans!

The nice thing with the US ATGM is that the turret can look over obstacles, as it’s just an APC chassis, so .50 cal shots will fuck you up.

Special event kicking off on 2nd August.

For anyone still cranking out research on German tanks, time to get at least something into the Coelian, Panther II, Tiger 105 and MAUS… because they are going bye-bye!

If you have at least started research on them, they will stay in your research tree, otherwise, they’re going to be hidden from your research options.

Saw Phly had a vid out about some tanks going but haven’t watched it yet.

Dont think im any where near them atm

There’s about a 2 week window. At the very least, I would heartily recommend getting something into the Panther 2 as it is just awesome. Good rotating turret with a fucking high-velocity 88.

Hmmm… i have to get the A done (alnost there) and the F. Might leave the Yanks alone for a bit

OK. So used up some “free” research to get to the Panther II and got some RP on it but i wont be able to get to the others.

Of the units being “pulled” it’s the most fun to be honest.

The 105 is a beast, but it’s not tougher than any other Tiger II, just has a bit more boom to it.

The Panther II is the fastest of the line, has an excellent gun, good turret speeds and can actually reverse properly!
