welcome to the third part of my European tech tree series.
This will give you a look of how the european tank tree may look.
and this part is dedicated to the actual structure and lines of the tree.
the previous parts are
European tech tree part 1: Swedish branch
my initial idea for a swedish branch, this will be updated
European tech tree part 2: Possible tanks
a summary of most the european tanks i know of
One note before we start is that im not here to discuss if the european tree should exist or not, personally id prefer minitrees for everyone of these nations but this is not that likely from my perspective.
Obviously europe contain a lot of nations who had many tank designs, and it would be franly impossible to represent all designs.
therefore ive made several compromises to create a tree wich has as few incomplete lines as possible.
so lets take a look at the tree shall we?
a thing of note here is that ive shortend a lot of the names to make them fit on the list, like Epz wich reffers to the Europanzer or the PNK wich reffers to the Pancernik.
this is a massive tree built with 11 lines wich lead to 9 tier 10s.
not including premiums wich will be a separate part of this series, there are currently 96 tanks on the tree.
these nations are represented in the tree
Finland and Belgium will also be included as there will be premium tanks from them.
so lets have a rundown of the lines.
1 heavy line using polish designs wich end up with a tank much like the maus
2 light tank lines, one with autoloaders wich tie in with the swedish line at tier 8, and one without autoloaders wich end up with the swiss panzer 61.
1 italian heavy line wich ties in with the swedish line at tier 8, or continues with medium tanks
2 artillery lines one featuring mobile czech vehicles wich end up with a 305mm howitzer, and one with mainly swedish and italian vehicles wich end up with a 155mm autoloader SPG
2 full medium lines one with czech tanks and the other with hungarian and yugoslav line.
1 swedish line wich consists mainly of medium and light tanks but wich ends up with a mobile 120mm autoloader heavy tank
2 td lines one turreted wich goes up to tier 8, and one not turreted swedish td line wich reaches tier 10 with the Strv 103A.
A few notes about these lines.
these will most likely change as i get more knowlegable on the subject of european tanks.
the full swedish td line was not preffered but was put in without foreign designs to maximise module compadability and make the tree less conveluted, sweden was also the only country with a tier ten td contender.
these are my main lines, there will be more lines in the future but these will more than likely tie in with already existing lines.
Now lets have a quick look at the tier tens.
and if you want information on the tanks on this list Part 2 covers that in detail.
hope you enjoyed this futile try at making a european tree.
