We should have them because than we can increase the tiers past tier 10.

No. I'd go into detail why I say no, but I doubt you would bother to read it. So, to put it short, no.

No (spanish)

No, but the search function can. Since this has been brought up and shot down dozens of times before. If not hundreds.

Modern optics, modern guns, modern armour, modern gun systems..


All of which are beyond overpowered for this game.

But can't they have a special matchmaking.

True a bunch of information that isn't given out to the public of any nation good luck coming up with random crap to make the game appear modern and balanced at the same time.

Doesn't it seem a rather obvious idea? And as usual, the someone brings up the "Ratte" again.

Morden day tanks in WoT? Let this video sumarize my feels.


There is alot of things about modern day tanks that would make it hard to put into a game: You dont know the armor values of the newer tanks, the armor is not just hard steel like WW II tanks were, and the guns would be hard to make into anything as a sabot round from a modern tank wrecks. So... No.

if we have them, you will miss that famous ding sound as the guided missiles or shells used in moderne tanks will fill the mouth of your crew members

The mechanics would be the same for modern day vehicles so it really doesn't make a difference.  Being arty is already beyond modern day mechanics, whould you suggest a constant laser beam that annihilates all in its path.

Wargaming already said NIET! There was a World of Warplanes interview where SerB stated that he admired in game chivalry and disliked the idea of putting laser guided weapons and rockets as well as composite armour. He wants the game to stay as the "I see you and I shoot you" theme. Besides, modern tank armour doesn't follow the WWII era concept of angling for ricochetes.

If modern tanks were implemented, then there would be no point angling or duking it with heavy tanks. They will all have rockets to make a boring Battlefield style duke-off when it is always the first person who shoots is the winner, while in the regular game now, 1 player can duke it against 5 others and still win due to armouring skills.


Besides, modern armour is overrated. They all look the same to me. At least with WWII tanks I can fight either in an awesome King TIger or a weird ugly-ass KV-5. Why have boring uniform modern tanks when you got cool unique WWII tanks.
