I've been one mission away for about 3 or 4 months.  I just couldn't seem to get just the right set of circumstances to either a) do 6,000 damage to complete TD15.3 or b) do 7,000 combined and cause 4 enemy tanks to be killed by my team while spotting them to complete LT15.3 with honors.  (I'd previously completed LT15.3 using four orders, so if I had completed it with honors I get the orders back and could complete TD15.3 with them).  I even posted a few weeks back about a battle in my Even 90 where I did over 8,000 combined but apparently only spotted three dying tanks... So close!  And in TD's I'd had many 5,000 damage battles, even a few in the 5,800-5,900 range.  Just couldn't break 6,000.

(In this battle I actually didn't think I made it either - I had landed a blind shot mid-battle that put me over 6,000 in the final results screen!)

 

Anyway, I'm finally glad to have earned the T-55a...I doubt I'll ever earn the Obj 260, but I'm happy I get to start working on those missions (great for earning credits!).  And i like tier 9 mediums, so I'll probably enjoy the T-55a (though I know it's inferior to the Obj 430 and even the T-54).

 

Why do I post this?  I guess because my family doesn't care...but I figure some of you may.  And there are new players who need to know it's accomplishable.

Nice!  Getting those milestones is awesome and the payoff of a competent tier 9 only sweatens the deal!  

 

On to more success!

Congrats. If you think of the T-55A as more of a trophy than a competitive tank you should be happy.

Sweat is the fluid excretion of a mammal, the purpoise of which is to evaporate, resulting in a net loss of temperature for the organism.

 

To sweaten a deal is to add a salty liquid to a business transaction. Generally, this is frowned upon.

He is a furry. Maybe he meant "sweat" after all.

A porpoise is a marine mammal,  and I don't know if it sweats or not. And while its teeth serve a purpose, I doubt it is being sweet.

Also, congrats to brianc53 on the T-55a.  I used orders on LT15.3 as well, but I'd already completely the rest of the 15.3s.

Good luck on the 260 missions!

Congrats, I've given up on getting honors for LT first sets of missions as some are almost impossible in the current meta and won't bother with doing them for the 260 so you bet there will be some welfare just for the girls as the 260 is just another garage queen. The rest are pretty easy to decent aside from a few absurd ones like where you got to do some blocking (good luck with that) or do like four or fives times your health in damage while playing a TD ect. I wonder how much longer we will have to wait for buffs for these vintage reward tanks..

Congrats OP I'm stuck on the heavy and TD missions. Here lately I have been playing like crap. Maybe someday I will get the 55a. I don't care about the new missions or the 260 missions. I just want the 55a in my garage.

I got my T55A recently too! I was stuck on HT12.3 forever, it is such an impossible mission.

After I did that one the rest were easy.  I used my STRV 103-0 for TD15, those Swedish tanks are so good

Congratulations. I'm working on the 260 myself. Some of the missions are really challenging so prepare yourself for that. I think the hardest ones to complete are the Heavy missions requiring blocked damage. Why? Because everyone and their mother is spamming premium ammo these days. And when they fail to penetrate with that they immediately switch to HE.
