Can't you all be patient we been good without a US premium TD so far. Yes I want one so I can level up faster my hellcats crew but come on people give WG a break.

 

Many of the other trees have a premium TD of some sort, why doesn't the US tree have one? I think people have waited long enough for this.

True but we need one that we can buy with gold/money.

Chieftain,

 

I'm glad you took the few seconds to explain why you go into such exquisite detail regarding the maintenance and upkeep of each vehicle.  Your point is well made.

 

Also the story on the Scorpion illustrates the various considerations of the design and implementation of any weapons concept.  The basic problem statement here is that Airborne forces need a gun capable of engaging armor, but that gun has to be deliverable on aircraft via heavy drop or Airland (a mighty tall order if you were looking at a C-82 or C-119 as your transport).  I would venture that ultimately the Scorpion was probably not that solution...but it was better than nothing.

 

This problem still exists today, and while airframes are certainly stronger, the armor has gotten bigger.  I'm afraid the LAV STRYKER is not living up to it's initial promise, and I'm hearing rumors that some want to bring the M551 back as an interim pending a better solution.  Don't know how valid that rumor is....but interesting.....

What do you figure is a good break?

 

4 years is a LONG time to ignore your clients.

I personally love the deadpan commentary about removal of most crew members before firing, and the removal of the gunners face. I approve of your dry humor, Keep it up.

No, the video was posted  sometime in July, then apparently taken down.  You can still find it linked on other sitesdated July sixth.  

 

EDIT: Found it kicking around on WoT Asia's Youtube page dated June 18

 

Yes it was
