TankBowl season is back, and we’d like to honor last year’s victor by offering a special German tank behemoth, the Adler VK 45.03. Plus, take out enemy vehicles while commanding any of your favorite German vehicles to earn extra Silver in our “Victory Lap: German” Ops!

Prepare yourself for the rumbles of the Adler VK 45.03! Not only does this heavy tank show off a sleek, German-proud paint job, but it also packs some serious armor and firepower!

Compared to the Tiger I’s flat armor, the Adler’s is sloped, providing more even protection from incoming fire. And what about the gun? Its superior gun handling lets it aim faster with greater accuracy and improved gun elevation/depression! Show enemies what you’ve got in Germany’s Flag tank!

      1. Oh guy, you need to learn some german history lesson before talking about “german pride”. The colors black-white-red were the colors of the Norddeutsche Bund and after the franco-german war the colors of the 2nd German Empire. Black and white for Prussia, the dominant State within the Norddeutscher Bund and red-white for the colors of the Hanse (hanseatic league of cities in nirthern Germany). After winning the german (civil) war of 1866, those colors were introduced.

        Before that we had already Black-red-golden as true german colors from the 1840ies revolutions. Accepted colors of a revolution of free german citizens. Before that there were no unique colors for Germany (until 1806 Holy roman empire of the German Nation), but dozens of colors of small german states.

        So, coming back to the design of the tank. They uses black-white-red, colors of Prussia and later deutsche reich, which was the result of a civil war most of the southern german states are not proud of. Suebian pride and of course bavarian pride. Saxonian pride etc erc know other colors.

        Beside that WG used the wrong patern (black-white-red from top and not red-white-black) – which is as stupid as bringing red-blue-white instead of white-blue-red for Russia – these colors are not German. True German colors since the Hambacher Fest are Black-red-gold. And these colors are eleer than prussian dominated black-white-red. Furthermore black, red and gold also refer to the empirial colors of the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire since Charlemagne and for Germany more imoortant Heinrich I (933).

        The colors used for the design are just wrong and to make it worse in the wrong order. This has nothing to do woth Fascism but with knowing German history. Obviously you don’t know it like WG does not know.

        And of course we all know that using black-red-gold for a WW2-tank-design would be a problem and historically also not correct.

        Best solutions: used another design with a different story.

        1. These fools that label everything and everyone fascist which is why I replied.

          It is sad if they used the wrong colour pattern(no idea tbh).
          Aside from that this camo should get included with unhistorical camo as it was never used on a tank.


        1. Do console players have the VK 45.03 yet? If not then it’s new stuff for them be it skinless or skinned.

          You can’t mod the console version so it was expected that sooner or later WG will sell skin mods for the console players.

          The question is if they will credit the original author for the skin idea or not.


  1. This looks way cooer than the Mauerbrecher. The colors may be touchy, but I´d have to say, painting a Nazi-era tank in black ,red and gold would be at least as iffy.

  2. This design was obviously inspired by the Order of the Iron Cross and its ribbon. The stripes around the turret are the ribbon and on the back of the turret there is the cross. While you could argue that the iron cross was introduced during the napoleonic wars and therefore could be part of a “german oride”, the colors ARE JUST WRONG!!! (The colors of the ribbon were black-white-red-white-black).

    WG, just stop this design. Under all aspects: this is a shame and an insult to whatever german pride (especially if we assume the most positive interpretaion) may mean!

    Why not find a good design inspired by black-red-gold for one of the post-www2-tanks like Ru, Kanonenjagdpanzer or Leo 1? why not have a traditional historic design with the old emperial eagle (black eagle on golden ground with red claws), So many good designs possible – but WG decides to do it just wrong and infact insulting.
