Another thing that helps me when I'm playing solo and I'm being too aggressive, is run a really slow tank.
My top 3 tanks to grind when I'm not hooked up with you guys are the Churchill III, the Super Pershing, and the TOG. Good credit/xp grinders, and slow compared to their peers in battle. It's a good mix for me.

You can one shot them with the M40/43 (but only if they are on your team). If they are on the opfor, you miss them every shot.

It is going to get worse....

For example you shoot the Churchill in the face plate but you can't penetrate the Black Prince in the same location even though it has the same flat face.... just wait until we have the 25 chinese knock off variants... "oh yeah.. thats the XYZ you have to shoot it in the bottom left edge unless it is the ZYX in which case you shoot the top right edge".

As it is... I still don't know a reliable place to shoot a Type 59 (or the tanks that look like it)

LOL There really is more than one way to kill an IS-7. Most of you know that I've been grinding on my Ferdinand as time allows. I don't have the big gun yet so I can't really pen very deep. Was just in a match with BigBird928 and had an IS-7 dive at me... He tried to get behind me, he ended up dead, I think it's worth a watch...

The hatch is usually the only place I can pen, sometimes the rear flanks. Guys don't buy them for the challenge, part of the reason I refuse to get one.

x3 weekend makes me wanna play!
arti fest makes me not wanna play.

That's ok.. The Elephant Ride is this weekend!

2nd weekend in February every year we go snow camping with the motorcycles and the Elephant Ride is on Sunday where we try and ride our motorcycles over a 12,000 high snowed in mountain pass. The forecast for this weekend turns out is for a snowstorm. Should be epic

Here's some pics from previous years for Mr. Mambo "Land of Palm Trees & Alligators" Dave.












...and here is yours truely trying to "float on top" on my Husqvarna a few years ago



I'm going to take the KTM500 this weekend.

it is a premium arty, that being said it is also french... so probably even thinner skinned than normal and not a great gun, though not a base model either, for the tier.

It's an arti - I don't care if it is thin skinned.. if I'm getting shot I'm done

What I do care about is fire rate, how fast it aims, and how much damage it does when I hit something
