hello i was doing some research and i found that the soviets sent the British and america a T-34/76 and a KV-1.

the British modified their T-34 by mounting a firefly's 17 pdr. and what looks like a 6 in. gun to the KV-1.

Americans, i haven't found any pics on what they did to thier T-34 and KV-1.

but i have found that soviets have captured and pressed into service several Panther and Tiger 1 and Pz. 4's of various uses's.

and Nazi's pressed into service several KV-1's and T-34's and M4 Sherman not just french tanks. WG needs to add more captured premium tanks to the game. and they need to add the GRIZZLY, its a canadian built M4 Sherman.

The Americans just used them for armor evaluations and found them to be good at deflecting rounds... that's about it.

 

Terrible engines, terrible construction practices.

 

Pretty good designs, but the implementation was considered garbage.

 

The engines were old by any standard and we out and out rejected them.

 

I think the Chieftain made an article about it. A VERY good article in fact.

 

EDIT: Might have been this article I was thinking of.

Yes because we definitely need more Sherman variants in the game...

So I Google Yugoslavian M4 and find this.

:) And I am all for it.

thanks m8, ive always been wondering wthamericans did with their T-34 and KV-1, thanks again, it would have been kool to see if they improved upon both tanks design, since they rejected the designer of the CHRISTIE TYPE SUSPENSION.

Let's have the captured Maus as a Soviet premium. And have it in the state it was captured (as in, without the turret attached).

yea WG is also falling behind on some of the game mechanics that most of the tanks had.

like the STB-1 with the stame crapthe swdish TD's have but slightly better,

BT series being able to run with out the tracks.

ETC ETC. but this is about tanks that should be in the game

There can never be enough Shermans. We need a tier 10 Sherman.

I'm really surprised they haven't put Russian lend-lease M3 Lee & M4 Shermans in the game yet.

Holy crap that's right that was a thing, War Thunder did it right by giving the STB the hydraulic suspension and wouldn't be a bad idea in this game to give it that extra couple degrees of depression.   Staying on Japan they did have a good deal of Chaffee's in their use well until the 70's so why not a JSDF M24?

How did they implement the hydraulics there?  Does it just do it automatically or was it a keyboard command?

It was a keyboard command, you'd have to sit still and then go into lowrider mode to choose which sides to manipulate, so not only up and down but also left and right so you could be the side of a hill and have yourself minimally exposed.
