The third day of E3, again we had a little time to fill up in the live stream. So Anna Prosser steeled herself for another onslaught of information about tanks, so what we have here is a full half-hour meandering through the German tech tree, again from memory so more descriptive than technical.

By the way, I still have a facebook page(Plug, plug) which needs more fans to feed my ego!

Anyway, here's the video. Enjoy!

Sorry, I wasn't reading the forum or watching the stream at that point, was too much focused on the garage!

I liked very much how you start the video out by complimenting your own hat.

Factual error, I've seen pictures of a KT that was knocked out frontally. 185mm turret front was penetrated!

Only the British QF 17 pounder using armour-piercing discarding sabot (APDS) shot was theoretically capable of penetrating the front of the Tiger II.

Best allied gun of ww2 :P

btw, +1 Chieftain

Because its a special reward, like the E4 sherman, but you never know, they might put it in

The underbelly was, though. Atleast, according to this article.

Very interesting. So it's a bit of makebelieve and wishfullfillment. Maybe the SuPer knocked out something else it thought was a KT. Could it have been a Panther? The KT and Panther's basic hull shapes are very similar.

Anna Prosser's name is spelled wrong in your YouTube description.
