I mean the shell velocity is great... but thats really mostly irrelevant unless youre sniping... so like not seeing how its actually an issue. (And if you are sniping in an IS-3A theres other problems to srot out... like why youre sniping with an IS-3A...)

 

It's useful for shots of opportunity as well (hitting someone as they're about to be in cover, etc.).

Are you kidding? I have had a female Chieftain crew for... probably a year now...

 

And TBH unless the potential top tier US medium is something like the T95E11 or T54E2 (with the 120mm) Im super not interested in them from a purely "I have 5+ other 105mm NATO mediums... I dont need any more" perspective. (And I have a bunch of US crews I could shuffle if they were interesting). So... Im set on those fronts.

I'm not holding out any hope of the Chieftain coming to WoT. :( I have greater hopes for a British light tank line, so when I found myself with two spare female crew I put them in a Covenanter to train for any future day when that might happen.

 

Not sure where I'll put future female crew TBH.

I suspect a lot of people have already seen this but for those who don't follow the site in question...here's a Tier V-VI British light for you:

Not sure what I'd do with new gal pals at this point...maybe put them in French armored cars...maybe put them in a Russian heavy.

I did see that, but thanks for sharing it here.  Someone else may be interested too!

 

Amusing moment - I got an email from Amazon about racing car books this am, and I think that can only be because I followed a link someone posted here :) I'd be much more likely to buy the Normandy 1944 book released last year from the Images of War book series.

So are you going to run through all the different tiers?

 

I kicked myself yesterday after you killed me in your IS-3A.  If I had looked at the enemy team list, I would have seen you and Tsavo were there.  I might have played more cautiously.  (As it was, I played very badly.)

After all these years I still can't figure out what to make of that movie.

 

Also, check your email.  :)

On a slight tangent, the South Park episode that spoofed "Heavy Metal" continues to be easily my favorite episode.

Thank you kindly good sir!

 

Also Heavy Metal is definitely one of those really odd movies. I still enjoy watching it from time to time though.

Theres a schedule on the forums which is mostly when I'll be playing.

Okay,

The Bad Ace Tanker camo the one with the trees and white is from the New Year.

 

The Tempered Glass camo which is a blue white mix is from the Christmas.

 

The Sparkling Night camo which is the fireworks one is from the Lunar New Year.

 

The Heavy Present Style camo which I don't know looks like what is from the Magic New Year.
