Who the hell welded those boxes; Stevie Wonder?

Seriously though I would like to see a full representation of Israeli vehicles as a branch line of the EU tree. Good work. +1

Iraqi T-55 Command tank. Commonly referred to as "Enigma". The Boxes are all Applique armor with multiple plates of spaced armor inside of them. Crude, but (supposedly) effective. Some of them may have even been filled with concrete as additional protective measures, or so I've heard.

Yeah I have seen that type of home-made armour before on one at Bovington. It would have had an effect on HESH and HE rounds, but absolutely no effect (negligible as to be effectively zero) on a DU penetrator. Filling them with concrete would actually make them worse in many regards.

I actually find the thought process on the rear armoured boxes quite clever though.

Having studied the IDF hardware and tactics as part of my armoured training... well a while ago... I'd actually really like to see this line introduced, particularly if/when WoT starts going beyond the WWII timeframe.

Update:

Been lazy and busy.  Had to move again and I've just gotten at least somewhat comfortable.  It looks
like the TD section will have to go into heavy revision past tier 5.  Since AMX 105 is too OP for being
a light or even a med, I think reassigning to tier 10 will help with this issue.  Tier changes will be
adjusted as needed.

Also via FTR, the Isreali (Conflict) tree has been announced as "planned" so cross your fingers.
Interestingly, the captured IS3 is a definite go for a premium.  It is actually not stock and modified.

More For the Record news:

I'm a bit disappointed about Ti-67, but I'm pretty sure it's mainly because of the timeline and the
fact that there may be an issue with how strong the base armor is.  However it's still possible to
see the Tiran series popup if properly adjusted.  Even 5 is good at tier 10, but we'll see what
happens on the dev end.  The Medium tree is actually very solid.  The SPG tree will be too.

At least China had some tank projetcs of their own at some point between the time period in wich the game's tanks are placed. Israeli tanks, until the Merkava, where all adapted from foreign equipment in use on the IDF. Add one or two of them (this sweet Sherman with 105mm gun, for example) as Premium on the Pan-Euro tree, and it will be more than perfect.

I like your idea Indygo, I really do. Have you ever considered (or perhaps you saw this) an idea that I pass around not too long ago?
