I just joined this game, and I realize that there are some changes coming in this regard in the next update, but I figured I would give as much suggestion support as I could.

When I logged in the tankipedia to see what british equipment there was, I was appalled. You are missing so much, not to mention you give many of their tanks to the Soviets, but not to their parent nation. So as a prominant British player of Flames of War, I can certainly provide what I feel is needed to have a sound representation of the British Empires power in terms of armor.

Light tanks:

Stuart mk I-V 37mm

Tetrarch OQF 2pdr

Medium tanks:

M3 Grant

Sherman Firefly Vc OQF 17pdr (if not other Sherman variants)

Valentine Mk VIII OQF 6pdr (as the heavier and better gunned vesion of the Valentine series)


SPG/TD:
3" Churchill Gun Carrage

Sexton OQF 25pdr SP

Archer OQF 17pdr SP

Achilles M10c 17pdr SP

Bishop OQF 25pdr SP


The Self propelleds/tank destroyers are where the British list is really lacking, and the Firefly. If you were to add those alone you would be effectively representing those of us that wish to share our love of British Armor.

They are adding probably all or the vast majority of those tanks in the next 2 or 3 updates. Tetrarch is already in the game but it's Russian.

1. Archer is going to be a TD.
2. The Teterach is already a Russian lend lease tank but I think its gonna be a British tank soon.

both the stuart and grant already exist, their actual nation of origin is the USA, and they're already in that tree, the brits will probably get the grant as a premi though, since it isnt identical to the lee. the firefly will come out at some point, the valentine already exists in all forms, the tier 4 valentine having two turrets to represent the differences. Archer will probably come out, as will all the other SPG's/TD's u listed, the brits are new, as you might not know, and so they're barely developed to their full extent. I personally dislike the firefly, so i'm hoping for a new british lighter TD branch with the challenger as an interim Medium/TD, maybe tier 6, with 2 loaders, a high ROF and cromwell like speed and turret traverse. This could go to the avenger and other turreted TD's

British tanks were just added into the game not to long ago so it's acceptable that there are some tanks/ spgs/ tds that are missing. The way tech trees are released are usually Light/ Med/ Heavies first then Tds/Spgs second. So just be patient and hang tight! We are all waiting for those tanks too!

You're wrong about him being wrong.

I know they are American and exist, but the Brits ran different variants and actually they saw action in british hands before american. And also since the Russians have the Tetrarch L/L version, why not have the Brit Lend Lease vehicles.

I will say I was impressed with how many early war Brit equipment was represented (the Cruiser series, AKA the A9, A10 and A13 outside the game, and the Vickers). these tanks aren't very well known and are often overshadowed by the prodominance of American made, British improved equipment.
