The Stug used to make money all the time. With the 100% special it's raking in cash hand over fist. Wish I could use the xp to research without buying. I'd have a Ferdi by now

pretty typical of AM T28Proto play. 11/15 tanks go the same fucking way and hang the other 4 out to dry

I'm going to run a T-46. If I need to, I'll drop the gold to bring my ISU-152 crew down to run a SU-76.....

Team:-
Bodwick - BT-7
FPGT72 -
Big Bird 928 -
MN_Smurf -hotshot SU-76 or T-46 or a Lee..
OLDNX - hot rod Bison, Or a Marder II or a Hetzer

Heavy tank - n/a
Medium tank - 3
Tank Destroyer - 3
Light tank - 3
SPG - 2
Each team is allowed one M3 Lee (Tier IV) and one Panzer III (Tier IV)
No duplicate tanks allowed


Kasserine Pass Challenge
6PM PST (9PM EST, 02:00 UTC the following day)
Round 1: February 21st
Round 2: February 23rd
Round 3: February 25th
Round 4: February 27th
Round 5: March 1st


Do you guys need a backup for this? It looks like you can only field 5 tanks per match, but can have 8 on your team. I would enjoy joining if the team isn't full already.

OLDNX, you won't be able to run the Hetzer because it's a tier 4. That's a bummer though. I would love to run a Hetzer in this.

The only Tier 3 tank I have is the Chi ha. What a Dog awful POS that is.

Can you run premium tanks in that? The FCM36 Pak40 is a Tier 3.

I don't see any mention of Premium being excluded...

Are you signing up Lobster?

I'll bring a T82 or a Luchs and I can play whichever one would be more useful to the team. We going to do practice rounds? Could we get Dave to coach us? haha

I'd be interested in being backup for the team as well. I could bring a Lee, T82, or Marder.

the only ones I could bring with a crew greater than 100% would be a T-82 with 97% camo currently, PzKpfw S35 739 (f), or a Vickers Medium Mark 3. I am leaning towards the PzK, as others have better crews for the T-82, but not all have a PzK and I do decently well with it.

PzK has Commander at 63% recon, Driver at 63% smooth driving, and Radio operator at 63% situational awareness.

Sorry bud, but i see a somewhat over-dedicated T28.

T28's require pathways/routes that enemies will not be shooting your sides. You are, to your credit, not as far up as the team, but ... if your teammates fall you'd have them coming at your from three directions.

Some maps just don't lend themselves to a T28 attacking... but those bridges lend themselves to channeling enemies to your front.

Yeah. Thing is, the only option is to keep on keeping on once a path is chosen. On that map, hiding on the hill gets me sniped from the oposing village. I have 2 crew members not at 100% camo. maybe that's it

Seems with that tank I get exposed a lot when I'm at my maximum viewing range. I have coated optics, binocs and camo net.

And I'll admit that being tired after 12 hours at work, and pissed off from losing a couple battles before doesn't help

that ST1 battle after that really took the cake though. I think 5 tier 10's and I still had top damage

Hopefully I can redeem my self a bit tonight. I doubt I will get that 20k I need for the T30 though.
