The primary side of the equation is easy; but I did not initially recognize the limited number of tanks available.  Thankfully, I have the M4 and Crom in my garage (as I suspect most do).

For you Franch lovers: get busy with your bad B1 selfs!

The missions, while easier if you have the historic tanks, are not that difficult in the least.

 

Be an easy grind for a free tank.

Don't particularly care about the tank: its the grind possibility - shortening up grinds by having bonuses = win

Its not about the tank its about the BIA crew. Rare to have the opportunity to get one especially French.

Pz.IV H with the derp gun ought to do the job nicely. The HE hits always do damage, no bounces. I transferred the BIA crew from the PoS Tiger 131 to it.

Panther and Firefly are the 2 main ones i am looking forward to taking the dust off of, though the sherman III and M4 may get some use too.  looking at the list you do get an idea of which ones we may see a lot of over the next couple weeks

Who remembers the missions that required tanks from every nation?  I saved at least 2-3 tanks from every nation after that mission and they NEVER did it again.

was wondering about d-day missions ? so you can use the lower tier "historical" tanks or ANY tank 7-10 ?

 

so there isnt 2 sets of missions 1 for historical and 1 set for not ?  you would think they would spell this out but then again when has wargaming actually ever gave out all the information in an event ?  bet half these missions were translated from russian WRONG

 

this happened so many times in the past it is actually useful to go to russian website and copy and paste each mission into google translator and find out the mission descrptions are indeed translated into english wrong  learned this from personal missions over the years

These missions are very easy. The tier 5 tank reward correlates to the difficulty of the missions.

The mission parameters are a tad different for the non-historical tier VII and higher tanks, but not much more difficult: https://worldoftanks...-day-challenge/

Scroll down the page and you'll see the slight differences. For each mission, it's slightly more requirements for the non-historical each day. For example, Day 13 for historical is do damage to enemy vehicles 15 times, while the tier VII-X vehicles is do damage to enemy tanks 20 times. By comparison to their other "marathon" missions, these missions are very doable for all tankers.

I think I have about 8 of the historical tanks in my garage, from Tiers IV-VII.

 

EDIT make that 11. Should be fun.
