Hey guys, im trying the Beta and is pretty good.

I was wondering why the Tiger´s gun in the game is 75mm when in real life had 88mm?

Tiger I: 8.8 cm KwK 36 L/56

Tiger II: 8.8 cm KwK 43 L/71

Maybe that needs to be fixed.

Well. The game does not focus on full historical accuracy. Many starter tanks, do not have their origenal gun from WW2. But many of them also have more powerfull guns then their WW2 counterparts. This is a game wich focuses on tanks and the best way to play them out in a fun way. At first i was also against this, but then again, is their any other MMORPG with only tanks in this world? :Smile_honoring:  And i found it very fun later on to have these things wich arent supposed to be their

Now dont be shocked if your tiger gets WTFPWNED in WOT by higher tier tanks. Keep in mind, their will ALWAYS be better tanks then yours, as their are tiers to be considerd.

Your tiger tank is a great matchup for its tier, the tiers below, and can still be deadly to the tier just above.


And about the guns, have fun experimenting! It is one the best things of this game. For the KV tank for example, i use both the 76.2mm, 122mm, 152mm as the 107mm guns.

Tiger does have the 88mm, just need to research it.

there was an tiger 1 model with 75mm kwk 42 L/70 gun but it was an prototype

if we are gonna go on realism the tiger can´t mount 8.8 L/70 that´s why the king tiger exists

as mentioned, it does have the ability to mount the 88, just gotta research it.

Additionally, If you were looking for realism, I would have thought the first thing to change was the speed. Given how gimped it is on the durability front, a little extra speed can't hurt.
