You are correct and the OP has been fixed :honoring:

 

 

Correct, it's a Tier 6 heavy. However, that is the ONLY Tier 6 that is allowed. If the limit were Tier 6, then ANY tier 6 heavy would be ok - which is not the case.

 

Does that make sense?

It makes perfect sense, thx.

Do you NEED to have the KV-2, or can we run with all Vs?

KV-2 is not a requirement, simply an option. But we do want to emphasize that the KV-2 is the only tier 6 tank allowed.

Google Raseiniai... The KV-2 is a shout out to that historical event.

A single KV-2 held down the entire advance of the German 6th Panzergruppe, IIRC. That's what it is a shout out too.

So would an example build be 5 KV-1's with 1 KV-2 or does the KV-2 count towards tier points?

I would love to bring my KV-2 to this, but I am going on a trip to Europe starting on the 23rd. :facepalm:

I'm confused on the tank point cost. Where do we find that info?

A tank is worth the number of it's tier.  So for this event you have 5 slots and 25 tier points.  Therefore you will probably see most teams in one of two configurations:

Five tier 5s

KV-2, three tier 5s and a tier 4 scout/TD.

June’s challenge uses the Battle of Raseiniai as a backdrop, where a lone KV-2 delayed the entire German 6th Panzer-Division's opening fire -- knocking out guns, crew and preventing German forces from delivering supplies and wounded...  

 

Why were the Germans delivering wounded? Seems like fresh troops would have been more useful in that situation.

Maybe that is why the German lost the war??? They got confused and delivered wounded to the battlefield and fresh troops to the hospital.

I might just have to find a team for this. Considering my KV-2 is my most-played tank last I checked the battle counts :justwait:
