Possible HD FV215B?

An HD FV 215B is a possibility, but take it with a grain of salt. This may be an artist rendering. If this were true, this could either mean two things. The FV215B is here to stay or it’ll be a reward of some sort.

Hungary’s Famous Fake Tank Destroyer

Introduction

After the end of the Second World War, under the soon established communist regime in Hungary, it was unwise (and unrequested) to publicly talk about any involvement in the military developments of the previous, condemned era. Therefore, the designers of the Hungarian 44M. Tasheavy/medium tank also chose to remain silent and its history soon faded away.

Nobody bothered to research the history of the Hungarian tanks and armored fighting vehicles until the late 1970’s, the time when most of the primary sources, the key people involved in it had already passed away. This made it even harder for the new generation of historians to form a coherent story because most of the time they had to rely on the few remaining, sometimes contradictory written documents or on the memories of the people who only played a minor role in the stream of events.

Consequently, because of the lack of primary sources, some outdated books and articles falsely claim that a self-propelled gun on a Tas chassis would also have been designed in parallel with the 44M. Tas development.

Leaker’s Opinion on WoWp 2.0

Thanks goes to spy99 for the opinion piece about WoWp 2.0.

“Greetings everyone,

As you maybe can guess: I have participated in the Wowp 2.0 testing and leaked one or the other thing. Normally i wouldn’t dream of leaking something but i wanted to make an exception for this game as my biggest fear is that the WoWp veterans could get WG to drop the whole patch as they don’t like the changes at all. They can’t see the main problem which is: If nobody wants these changes and the game would stay as it is now, nobody would pick it up and the player numbers would stay similar atm and on the worst case would start dropping since Studia Persha does not get enough money for development to put out a decently sized patch every 2 months.

In the long run, such a game wouldn’t be able to survive as it is under life support by WG. This patch it the last chance this game gets.

And now that the second testing phase is over right now i want to address the changes and plans to the live version of WoWp and WoWp 2.0.

Conquest gamemode:

It is a fun gamemode which is a huge improvement over the current one since it it much clearer how to gain points for the ticket counter. The ability to respawn is a nice addition and really allows you to be more aggressive if it just means to capture a base.

The different effects for different objectives is also really interesting.

For one you have the Airfields which either heal you when you fly within their range or they shorten your respawn time allowing you to be back in the fight much sooner.

The factory does give your team a massive amount of points every 1.5 minutes ( guessed).

military bases or missile bases launch an attack at a neutral or enemy base with either bombers or missiles. The addition of AI planes defending the Bases pretty much forces you to attack a base in a group as a solo attack will likely result in destruction.

Supertest: Otto Carius’ Tiger 217 Tier 6 Premium German Heavy Tank

This is the Tiger which the famous German tanker, Otto Carius, commanded. We now have both major Tiger I variants as premiums. The Tiger 131 being a Tiger I Ausf H and the Tiger 217 being a Tiger I Ausf E.

In April 1944, Otto Carius got the Tiger tank no. 217 under his command. He commanded it only until July 1944 because of his battle wounds. The tank itself was blown up under Baltyisk (Pillau) in 1945 because it was unfit for further duty.
