I'm new, so I probably don't have enough kills on any one vehicle to earn any kill markers yet, but it makes me wonder; are there kill marks for tanks like there is in warplanes (see my signature)?

That's actually painted onto your tank? No.

I guess they could implement something like this using what they do with the inscriptions and such now, but presently there is nothing like that. but realistically given how many games and kills people have your tank would be covered in these in not too short a time LOL.

Think of Garbad. His tank would be a multitude of colors and if you scratch one paint job you'll find another.

This is a good idea though, paint the most kills you have gotten on 1 game on the side of ur tank
But then people might ks more

Well, the marks scale exponentially. For example, you get your sixth air kill mark at 2000 kills and second ground kill mark at 10 kills.

Unless it was set up so it would show a large tank for 1000 kills and a smaller one for every 100, maybe even a smaller one for every 10.
Realistically it would be redrawing quite often.
If it could or did come into use it would be nice to see a difference between type kills, ie... heavy kills have a specific look over spg's and such.

Oh yeah, and these marks are specific to the plane.

Idea has been broached numerous times before with the concept of "barrel rings".  One white ring around your barrel would denote 1 kill, another color would denote 10 kills, and another color/thickness would denote 100 kills.  Prevents it from getting too crazy with the emblems.

This is soo nice in WoWP !
Indeed I think kill marks could be implemented in WoT as well.
A different way to enlarge your e-pen**.... since tank battle start much more closer, and others can actually see your marks !

Too difficult to put hundreds or thousands of markers on tank played lots - will not fit

Will fit on the BL/10 with the barrel idea.

No it will not - can you fit 1436 rings on my T110E5?

Again, the way WG currently has them implemented in WoWP, the kill marks scale.

1 Mark = 1 Kill
2 Mark = 10 Kills
3 Marks = 50 Kills
4 Marks = 200 Kills
5 Marks = 500 Kills
6 Marks = 2000 Kills
7 Marks = 10000 Kills

Seven is the maximum number of marks.

I was asking because I wanted to get a tank signature in addition to my plane signature, but since this has turned into a nice suggestion thread; I'll run with it.
