Here is an interesting question.  IIRC, when the camo is built-into the tank model, Vents, BIA, & Camo skill stack on top of the tank model attributes.  Thus, a skinned tank, which has the camo built-into the model, has a slight, but measurable advantage over a non-skinned version, which has had the camo paint added.

 

Is my recollection correct?

Why don't you wait and see what becomes of the "Russian Refund"?  Remember the Bat Chat changes that everyone panicked about? Well, WG decided not to go through with those. I'd have to imagine there will be a better situation forthcoming for pref MM tanks than was originally presented. 

 

​     I am waiting...

 

Past experience has shown me that it will, in all likelihood, happen. I make my view on it public in hopes that someone sees their error and doesn't take a stroll down that path. Past experience, once again, tells me that also won't happen. I'm both a cynic and a realist so I stand behind my post.

 

    Oh and did I mention [edited]you warfailing?

 

 

 

Edit for spelling...more coffee is needed.

I have a question. I want a non-skinned m41 90 mm but i have 3 marks on my m41 90 gf will the marks get moved to the m41 90 mm or will they stay on the m 41 90 gf?

I did a quick Team Training session to take a fresh look at my M41 90 GF and decided it just flat out looks cool.  I'm keeping mine just the way it is.

 

But thanks for the option!

 

(PS I impulse bought the unskinned M 41 90 basic and put on the Front Line German award camo and it looks great. I scavenged a crew for it and will finish out the Front Line season playing nothing but light tanks just cause they are fun to drive.)

Oh man, I liked the GF edition, any plans of selling that soon, can I buy this new version and do a reverse trade in?

I wonder when this changed?  It looks like it was implemented in 1.0.1 ... I am not in front of the client, but I am all but absolutely certain, as recent as this past weekend, I had tried to apply camo to a painted / skinned tank and the exterior button was disabled, implying the action wasn't available.  As the content provider swapped between tanks, it was clear the 13 57 GF had the Exterior button enabled ... more on this at 11.

Did you do an exchange on your 57GF to the 57? I kept my GF and bought a new 57 and my GF does not have access to exterior - my 57 does.

No, not because I didn't want to exchange, but because I didn't know an exchange was available.  Even if it were to cost me a bit of camo value, I'd much rather have the ability to apply and personalize the paint and inscriptions.

Mine is disabled.  They showed a 13 57 non GF version in the video too.  The GF version in the vid had the button disabled.

I understand that we keep the stats for the lekpz M 41 90 GF in our service record, but if we decide to swap does that mean our statistics transfer or do we have to 3 mark the tank again?

 

Best.

 

 

The statistics will not transfer because they are different vehicles in the game files.  You are of course welcome to keep the Black Dog.

If you compare the 2 tanks WITH 100% concealment crews in both, the camo rating is virtually identical.

 

This is true of all "special" skin tanks which include camo in their default skin.

Do we have to pay a 3,000 gold fee for this like the premium trade in?

 

lel. j.k.

 

Good job WG, I will take you up on this offer for any tank that has a special skin.

 

Let me trade my Scorpion for the unskinned version next.

And my Chrysler.

And My KR.

 

Sell the regular regular Mutz and I will buy it as well.

I would even consider a plain VK 168.01.

Heck, how about a stock STG?

 

The ugly skinned tanks have been a good enough reason to not buy certain offerings in the past.

 

yes i would love that for my skorp i all ready run a skin mod for it so it would be nice to put some paint on it

This will be hard for me, on one hand, I want to be able to put on camo, and personalise the tank

 

On the other, I kinda like the Blackdog

Think he's referring to the situation which gave the painted tanks a slight edge.

 

Which seems to have been fixed/nerfed depending on point of view.

The real question is should I beg my wife for an advance on my allowance to purchase this tank ;)?  I love the old Bulldog and the tier 10 Sheridan with the 105mm.  Is the play style similar?  I love light tanks but don't have much on the German line.  Do people like the current German lights (since this would be a crew trainer)?  I haven't kept up on the changes to know.  Thanks!

What about the camo values built into the current skin? We technically paid for the camo as well, and we're getting an un-skinned version back w/o camo

 

Then don't trade it. Seriously though, trade it in and tell us if you get camo in your garage.

Keep in mind that black tank owners can get mod skins.

Finally, I can get rid of that godawful skin on my M41 90.  

Now, I just need the same thing on my 13 57.

 

They already offered a swap for a non-skinned version. Submit a ticket.

Hmm. This is definitely something to think about. I'm kind of on the fence at this point. Do I keep the GF for nostalgia's sake and the fact that I'm almost to 3-marking it (with only HEP), or trade it out for the non-skinned version because of how awesome it looks in a good camo paint?

 

One question I had. If we were to put in a ticket and then go play a game of Frontlines, but not spawn our M41 90 in that Frontlines game, would it still count as taking the M41 90 into battle and thus cause the ticket to fail?

I suppose one could always wait until after Frontlines are over and swap the tanks then, which would avoid this issue, but I thought it was worth asking anyways.

 

EDIT: Another question. If we swap, do we get to take advantage of the x5 xp for wins mission that comes with the bundle? My guess is no, but confirmation would be nice either way.
