Progetto, SkorpG, Lorr 40t, Somua, Is-3A, maybe IS-6, Mutant maybe, etc.  Anything with decent mobility and a good gun.  I’ll orobably also bring my Pershing to help with that grind.

I'm incredibly sad that the Panhard FL-10 won't be around for the first round of Frontlines.  I guess the Lynx will have to do.

 

Choice tonks for me:

  • Centurion 5/1
  • Type 59
  • T26E5
  • Lynx
  • M41-90

UDES is worth getting, so much more fun that the STRV

If you get an award tank, does it come with a garage slot?

 

(Or, will I have to buy a slot or sell a tank?)

Last time in Frontline, if the attacking force captured the first zone ("A" for example) then defenders had a short period to get out or take air strikes.  That basically seems not to have changed.

 

However, a common tactic was to sneak back in to "A" after that period to kill arty, attack tanks during resupply, spot for arty attacks, attack tanks returning from respawn, etc.

 

Have the Rule changes affected that?

Didnt see anything about a cease-fire like the first round of frontlines... Does that mean there isnt a cease-fire daily?  If thats the case, FANTASTIC!  If it isnt, well guess you didnt learn the first time round.

Progetto, Pantera , and T-44 I don't have many tier 8s so probably will rent T-44 and just use my 2 Italian tanks. Oh that reminds me I have to work on my second Italian crew this weekend for Pantera.:)

No it hasn't, or at least that's  what I've seen from youtubers playing on the test server.

 

I was also annoyed at that 'feature'. Seems strange that the defenders can go into uncontrolled areas while the attackers get deleted if they step into an uncontrolled area.

VK100.01 (P), FV4202, Type 59 and T25 Pilot will be returning for duty.  IS-M will be taking the AMX 65t's place this time around and since Jam referenced it, I might try my UDES as well.

Oh my gosh, I have so many Tier 8 tanks. Im just gonna focus on grinding my ISU, IS-M, AMX 65 t, P 44, and 53TP for maybe first episode. I also will play my Tiger II, Defender, IS-6, WZ-111, SU 130U to train my crews. I probably will play Lorr 155 51 and/or SU-14-2, depend on how long it will take me to get in the game to start it off.

The rental cost of the T-44 FL got me confused.

Is there a limit on the amount of time we can pay for a renewal on that tank?

 

I just find it strange to ask for gold for the whole season if each episode can be paid in credits.

My go to picks for a variety of situations will be the AMX 50 100, Object 252U/Defender, IS-3 (not the automatic), LT-432 (LTTB is also very good if you don't have the 432), Skorpion G, AMX CDA. 

 

Tanks I dont have which are also good include the VK100P, T26E5, Lorraine, M41-90.
