You expect me to be scared of a Tiger 1? What the h*ll does everyone do in this game now a days, sit back and snipe the frontal armor of whatever comes along?

I'll take on those with a stock 75/32 cannon and free AP rounds. Did the T1 get a huge buff since I've been gone?  Highly doubtful.

You aren't arguing apples to apples.  You're bouncing all over the place, and that doesn't make sense.

 

Even if you give the P26/40 a better engine and a higher rate of fire, you're not going to compete with an IS or a T29 with it, or even a Tiger of whatever sort.  Sure, you can do some damage against a Pz IV or an M4, but you aren't going to do so well against the higher tiers that those Tier 5 vehicles can see.  You can do some damage to Tier 5's, for sure, but that's why the tank is in Tier 4, so it can see Tier 5's.  It works best at Tier 4, and can be somewhat popular because of that.  Putting it in at Tier 5 would make players hate it, they'd free XP past it, and you wouldn't see them in matches at all.

 

Do you want your tank to be popular or hated?

 

They've been saying standard WW2 medium tanks would work best at tier 4 for the past 5 years now. I keep telling you certain shill elements have always been trying to move down the WW2 tiers to make way for their Cold War junk. It was used to convince the audience that their out of era b***sh**ttery would work fine at tiers they never belonged in in the 1st place.

 

 

 

Great, I'm so glad Wg allows us to damage tier 5s & their inferior historical firepower. Thanks WG!

BTW, Along with the P40 ceremonial we have ~4 or 5 WWII era Semovente that continued service during the Cold War. I want ammo from that era as well. Perfectly legit in a fantasy game where tier 5 WW2 vehicles have to fight Tier 7 Cold War sh*t boxes. Perfectly historical.

It's time for our annual Pastaboo poll of the year to find out what branch is wanted next. It's a shame we can't make a poll within a post.

 

What would you like to see next?

 

 

A. Italian Semovente line (TD)

B. Italian Pesante line (Heavy)

C. Italian Leggaro line (Light)

D. Italian Semovente line (SPG)

E. Italian Wheeled Line

F. Premium Italian vehicle

G. Anyone of the above

H. All of the above

I. Nothing but the above


 

I'm going to choose A & B. What say you?

 

 

I do really want both TDs and LTs cause the possible options for high tiers are super cool (it would be an extreme butthurt facing fakeghetto 69 lightened as lt 10)

 Nothing in this plane of existence will cause players more butt hurt than getting destroyed by real Semovente and their historical gun up-grades. They have been taught all their lives that nothing could possibly defeat their nationalistic sh*tboxes.

 

 I'm not opposed to light tanks but we already have the L6 and the others don't stand out until you get to the higher tier OTO turrets. I must continue focus on the heavies lest they be lost forever to Russian corruption and secrecy. 

 

 As far as machines like the TV1000, well, WG didn't allow the Hungarian TDs because the gentleman's design was for the British- much like Bonmartini's rubber tracks. I think WGs decision was sad in both cases. By that time it's all one Cold war. Nobody cares who the hell the host country decided to use for a particular design. Do I care if the Italians never used the Palmaria for their own military? Of course not. Its still bleeds OTO Melara Pastaboo and I would want it for the ITT- not that we'll ever see another SPG line.

Here's some facebook pages with good pics. Some I've seen before, some are new:

 https://www.facebook.com/Mezzi-corazzati-italiani-Regio-Esercito-e-ENR-538355859700101/

From that page, P40 during testing:

Another FB page. This one deals mostly with RSI era:

https://www.facebook.com/Paolo-Crippa-Le-mie-pubblicazioni-826151534117384/

It has some nice articles & pics.

 

& Dili from CS posted the recent collection of Rivista Militare (military library, Rome) online.

https://comandosupremo.com/forums/index.php?threads/rivista-militare-online.238/#post-1104

The magazines and books go all the way back to the mid 1800s. Sadly, I haven't reached the WWII articles yet, except for a small article about Sicily.

3 week old WT video of Semo 90/53.goes good with the pic. The player selected a zoomed in view with only top of gun and hood showing. I like.

Youtube video from the start of Operation Compass.

From 0:4-0:23, the video shows the M11/39s knocked out outside of Camp Nibeiwa.

https://www.youtube....h?v=F0bZmmlQgxw

The crews were reportedly sleeping inside the camp with the exception of a few drivers keeping the engines warm. Some sources say some crews made it back to their tanks- not that it mattered at that point.
