Hey Tankers,

We are excited to announce the release of two new historical books: The SU-152 and Related Vehicles  and The T-34 Goes to War!


 Both books are now available in digital or print versions, and feature never-before-seen photographs and documents from the Russian archives.  The books also come with an eight-page graphic novel story with World of Tanks tips, and a bonus code with $15 worth of in-game goods.  Hardcover orders before August 31st get an additional $10 off!

Check out The Chieftain and Dana Lombardy discussing the books here:

There is an unsettling lack of specifics (from what I could find) on exactly what the $15 of in-game goods is.

 

Otherwise... certainly intriguing (with or without the in-game goods).

I pre-ordered them on Amazon but when release day came I got a message that they are out of stock. What's up with that?

Nope, actually had to change all the historical battle maps to Ensk because that's all the printer would give us :trollface:

See this is a make or break for me: What exactly am I getting for in game goods?

 

I mean yeah books are nice, but give it a few weeks and someone will photocopy them onto the internet for me to read, whether or not I actually buy them depends on what I get in game...

I was given the SU-152 book as a Fathers Day gift back in June, but it still has not arrived yet. Why is it taking so long? And will we still be receiving the SU-85I for purchasing it?

How many months overdue will the shipping on this book you're promoting be?

 

Because I certainly recall people having issues with Hunnicutt's Firepower being delivered in a timely fashion.

Detailed in the video.  1000 gold, SU 85i, buncha credits

Scratched around a bit, here's the code details:

 

7 days of Premium, 1000 Gold, 100,000 credits and then either the SU-85I for the SU-52 book or the T-34-85M for the T-34.  Also, piracy kinda sucks - people worked hard on these and deserve better from their readers.

Books should be shipping now but I don't have a direct line.  Did you order through Amazon and it's still telling you the order is processing?

Yeah we ordered it through Amazon.ca in Canada on May 7th. I just checked right now and it says "delivery date pending."

I did receive this gift from my sweet daughter on Father's day though, so I was still pretty happy...

Yeah piracy sucks, but I can either buy these books, or buy my textbooks for college...
