I agree about the French tanks needing to be added.

However, I quickly perused the Russian wiki through Google Translate the other day, and besides already having added the French tanks, I noticed that the Russian wiki seems to go into much more depth than the NA wiki. For example, the AMX 12T, which is a relatively new tank, has a recommended research path, advantages and disadvantages, and recommended modules and equipment among other things. This information may be found here and there on the NA wiki, but there is never this much detail for any one tank.

I appreciate that setting up a wiki like this is a lot of work, but I figure it might actually be less work if all the wikis were simply translations of one another. I don't speak Russian, but through Google Translate I understand the bulk of the content, so I would be willing to help translate the wiki, especially the tanks I have experience with.

There's something wrong with the VK 3002 (DB) page.

The modules aren't showing even though the code is there.

I'm working on the French tanks right now (The Hotchkiss H35 to be precise) but how does adding modules work, is it automated?

All that needs to be done is increase the max number of loops in the settings.

Wow. While I'm not motivated to update every single tank profile, I'll look into auto-generating the five module pages, that's no problem. Besides being broken they are also very out of date.

Code is ready. Noted some naming issues that I cannot fix myself because of protected pages:

  • M7 MT is named M7 on wiki, as is the contour template.
  • T14 has already been renamed but contour template still exists for T-14 only and points to the deleted page.
  • Half the french tanks don't fit their ingame names exactly, and neither do their contour icons.
  • Some premium tanks are missing, mostly newly added premiums that are not in the shop or the Russian premiums. Since at least the latter exist on the EU server I'll add the data for them, too, but the contours icons will be missing
Should be fixed, or at least some additional contour icon links added. I'll use the exact in game names.

Also note that I would calculate RoF = 60/(((clipSize - 1) * clipFiringSpeed + clipReload)/clipSize for automatic/auto-loading guns, because whatever is done in game or on tankopedia is nonsense.

Once you get your wiki configuration issue fixed I'll update the pages.

Not really a wiki thing - It's an idea for the Suggestion Forum section though, probably already one there even.

These two hero medals have the same definition/requirements.


Orlik's Medal - Awarded for destroying three or more enemy tanks or tank destroyers with a light tank. The targets must be at least two tiers higher than the player's tank.
Roman Edmund Orlik, a Polish Army sergeant, was a tank ace who knocked out 13 German tanks with his light TKS tankette in September, 1939.


Oskin's Medal - Awarded for destroying three or more enemy tanks or tank destroyers with a light tank. The targets must be at least two tiers higher than the player's tank.
Alexander Oskin, a Hero of the Soviet Union, was a tank commander who destroyed three King Tigers with his T-34 during a reconnaissance operation near Oglenduv on August 11, 1944.

Yup, looks like someone recently changed the descriptions and it went unnoticed. Fixed it again.

Not sure if you are aware, but the link to the Lorraine 40t in the text box at the top of the page for the AMX 13 90 points to a dead page.
The 'child' link in the info panel on the right works correctly however.

Though you should know, and keep up the good work guys and girls :)
