From the Developer Diary video.
All shine and stuff – but we need parts ripping off.
KV-2 HE shot you? There goes your MG, toolbox, wires, handles, antena, fuel tanks, exhaust pipes and lights.
This is SPARTAAAAA!
Flagged for spam.
Noob…you can’t flag for spamming…you can spam for flagging instead
would be nice if they do it, but they didnt say anything about it so i doubt they will add it.
They said earlier that normal Havok will come later. I hope they will add not only removable parts but also armor mesh changes from hit/penetrations.
IIRC they said that they will not make armor durability change after being penetrated etc, they were worried players would be unneccessary confused by that… they do not want even more empty ketchup bottles lying around in first 2 minutes of battle.
It will be more like – BAM, GW Tiger hit us for 1800dmg! Damn we are lucky he did not scratch our shiny plastic-look-like armor; really, they make models more and more like they are painted with really thick amount of paint and the photo is taken in factory right next day the paint is no longer wet. I have never ever seen such a shiny tank in my whole life; I give you that the pieces I have seen were far from being new with the most recent models I have seen were active service equipment like BMP1/2 (yes, sadly few countries still have BMP1 as active service vehicle) and the oldest perhaps Renault FT17. One T34-85 is even around 20-30km from my hometown, although that one particular vehicle is outisde on display, so he has to face weather all day long. These WoT models will look nice in garage but will look ridiculous in battle.
My personal opinion is (no need to read any further, no need to agree with me) that they should make these tanks look like they have been in field at least for few hours if not days, it would be damn hard to keep that Tiger so shiny after few km of moving on tracks from train station to the battle position at El Halluf, any artic map, any map with swamp or mud, almost any map at all. Perhaps on Himmel they would keep their looks for a longer time…
maybe that will come with time ;)
WTGF comes out – people whine about tank being dirty.
WoT HD comes out – people whine about tank being shiny.
Someone somewhere will always be complaining about something.
The middle way is often the best way :) not from extreme to another extreme; and I would definitely not call that one post of mine as “whine”, I am sorry if that sounded as it was a whine; I agree that these models look nice, I just consider it more logical to make it look like that tracks at least once touched ground.
Well it’s obviously not the same people complaining, M8.
I’m in the “shiny is nice” camp, because for all the gritty realizm you might get from your mud-covered object of fixation, it still looks better. And no amount of mud will change the fact you’re not in the steppes of the Caucasus but sitting in a chair playing a sodding game.
EDIT: I just noticed some weird tanks in one of the burning VK36 screenshots. They’re in the back on the left.
i saw them too, looks like something bigger than a Medium I with a 20 mm
Tier 1-2 tank definitely.
I like how they add sneaky previews of tanks :D

Could be another gift tank? Easter egg tank?
That swedish Tier1/2?
Aint this? LKII?
I dont think so… look at its gun ..and superstructure looks much bigger too.
Upgraded version? Or they found something something in the archives.
Whole lower half of the tank is different aswell.
And it does not have turret at all..It must be some kind of general Lee’s much much older cousin :D But i want it :D
It’s an armored tractor, google “хтз бронетрактор”.
They are HTZ-16 (T-16) armored vehicle ( armored tractor ? ), I suggested this tank(?) long ago, maybe they heard me :D, here is some pics :
Developers say that the new models will more look like a heavy steel beasts. In my opinion it could be done only if all the tanks will get more slow.
75-ton E-75 rotating at place like a light tank really does not look like a mass of a steel.
Pivoting in place has nothing to do with tank weight, Maus could do it too.
But how fast? Did you see sometime the REAL tank? Did you see T-55? I did and the tank is very slow, not like the rocket in WoT …
Nearly 180° turn in about three seconds. Pretty much the same value as the T-54 in the game.
Are you one of those people that thinks the old big-gun battleships were slow, too?
They were. They did what, 21knots (40km/h)? My dog is faster than that, let alone a Supercarrier.
Dont know how it looks like in real life but that mg port on the m4 is still hexagonal and the mg barrel itself is aswell xD.
MG port is more like decagonal really, and the MG itself is octagonal. Hexagon has 6 sides ;)
Yea i noticed that but my edit timer already expired so i didn’t bother xD. Figuired people would get the point anyways, it isn’t round like gun barrels are now on the new models.
Well, it’s not that noticeable either. It’s a lot better than what it used to be anyway.
*Watches the video*
*Watches dynamic weather*
There goes the viewrange :D
Possible fix for camping?
I think it’ll boost the camping because people won’t see each other for a longer time period, especially in winter maps like Arctic Region.
Pfff, if they cant see me/our platoon closing in – that will hurt them a lot :D
Woras, the Sneaky Rapist :D
Indirect light tanks buff? Also inb4 new Ranzar movie: some lt ninja-ing around, spotting for his team during snowstorm… Which suddenly ends and lt find itself in the middle of nasty horde of hts and tds. Gangrape ensues.
If you enter a battle with 15 tiger ALL of them will have chip in the paint and dent in the armor at the EXACT.SAME.PLACE.
do you suggest WG making 15 different textures that are distributed by RNG? really wanna wait more before a game?
Why not… stay with me… make them… hold on, this will blow your mind… look like they… are you ready?… “just came from manufacturer”.
If not then let me remind you something:
- Storm stated that the fact that the Tiger I in game looks very smooth (as in, the paint is glossy and smooth) is historical, that’s how the vehicles looked.
^ So this means that the raw unpainted tank was shot a hundred times and the manufacturer wore off anything on the tank THAN painted it and sent it to the field? Are they so stupid or they didn’t make up their minds?
They never said they were new – actually when they were off they get glossier, because they get thinner and the metal starts to show through. By that time they have damage as well, so yeah, that’s a fairly accurate visual.
Actually, the main problem in your statement would be “a battle with 15 tiger”. You would worry about a paint scratches not the match maker trolling? Interesting…
On those scratches are what you’re looking at in the heat of the battle, right :P What you’re doing now is watching close-ups of tanks very carefully, it’s something there’s no time for during the battle itself.
Yeah, and? Hopefully this dreadful and unprecedented injustice will be the last straw that makes you reach for the straight razor. Remember, “go along the street not across”.
Honestly I can’t understand the HD-hype.
I’m gonna shot those tanks anyway, it doesn’t matter how will they look, High Definition, Low Definition.
In most cases they are only a spot in my aiming reticle. Find a target, find a weakspot, aim, shot.
People want reality , so WG is giving them it :D
“Want reality? Join the army.”
Why not they enlist everybody who brags about HD instead?
I joined the army once, didn’t see a single HD Tiger anywhere.
I’m sorry, that made me laugh. XP
M103 doesn’t have the new Turret tank light i hoped for what fucking failures
