Hey, everyone! 

 

It's time for Gnomon's Emporium of....you know what. Nope, I won't give in. I don't need an Emporium for sales.

 

Just think of me as the guy with the distant look on his face swinging a sign around outside a store and yelling at you with a megaphone about our SALES!

 

Anyway, what great summer would be complete without some loud music? Well, we have good news! The Primo Victoria is back on sale and it should fill all of your heavy metal needs. 

 

If you've never heard of it, the Primo Victoria is a Strv 81 Tier VIII medium tank with exclusive features you won't find on other vehicles: 

 

  • Crew voices recorded by Sabaton frontman Joakim Brodén
  • Custom Crew modeled after the Sabaton band members (you can't change the name, picture, or roles of crew members, but they can be assigned to other Swedish vehicles)
  • Exclusive permanent camouflage (gives +3% camouflage bonus on all maps)

 

But Gnomon, I hear you asking, what is this Band of Brothers thing the Crew comes with? Well. Band of Brothers is the same thing as Brothers in Arms. Each Crew in this tank comes with the Band of Brothers Perk with a special icon. It gives 5% to the training level of each crew member, as long as all crew members have the perk.

 

BoB works with BiA or Sisterhood of Steel if you want to use Sabaton with other Crews. 

 

We've also got the 43 M. Toldi III on sale, which is a Tier III light tank. The Toldi is a rare sale offering, so this is chance for collectors to pick it up! 

 

Have some sales:

43 M. Toldi III

If you are swinging a sign around, how are you holding the megaphone?

 

Is it a small picket sign that you can swing with one hand (depending on the wind ferocity on that given day), or is it one of those arrow signs that you twirl around like some guy on adderall?

 

Also, is the megaphone just like one of those cheerleader megaphones that's just a big cone, or is it one of those electronic bullhorn things that you can't understand what someone just yelled through it?  Or is it one of those walky-taly kind of things where you talk into the CB radio, truck driver style mic and the bullhorn portion is like, clipped to your belt?

 

 

 

 

 

I have MANY questions about how you are equipped for attracting business for this sale... :P

All good questions! 

 

I actually have a contraption that hangs the megaphone (big cone cheerleader one) in front of my face from a hat. I have the speaker button held down with zebra-print duck tape so that it's always on. Always. 

 

And a twirling sign! But it can only pick-up enough speed to rotate once per minute. I'm basically a yelling clock.

Interesting... Interesting...

 

Do you have glitter and/or sequins anywhere on your sign or outfit to attract more attention?

Yes, yes ... but you forgot the most important question ... What Is the Airspeed Velocity of an Unladen Swallow?  :D

Btw, I have actually looked this up before, and the average airspeed velocity of an unladen European swallow is about 24mph (11 meters per second).

Yeah <scratches head> I came across the same figure ... but somehow, I've always thought (post movie) ... that it was faster than that.

Well, that is the average airspeed velocity of an unladen European swallow, so there would be swallows that are faster and some that are slower.

 

This source/article goes into more detail on the math involved with coming to that answer, if you're interested.

Can we talk with Minsk and get them to sell the normal Strv 81 as well? Please.

Now the Toldi is for sale (I think for first time ever), I imagine you have fast plans to get the inmense buff that it needs. The DPM, Aim time, alpha dmg, dispersion and view range is complete garbage, the tank has nothing good, maybe the pen, but it is not enough to compensate all the other things. 

 

If it were russian this issue would never exist.
