So GM Rico here again, as you probably noticed by the poster avatar. We have four new tanks coming at us with the arrival of CBT2 (more on that after the tanks). I figured that the players would like to know the specifics of these tanks. So without further adeu here they are (click on the picture and choose view image to see the stats easier):
Developed by the U.S. Army during WWII, it was the last tank put into practice. It was first produced in March 1944, and though it was a small tank, which made it difficult for big people to board, the weapons were light, its mobility and maneuverability were excellent. Starting from the end of 1994, it was placed in each unit, and was first inputted into the Ardennes Civil War. Nevertheless, WWII ended before the tank was implemented into each unit and thus was not used in many battles.
When the SU-76 armament could not effectively destroy the German tanks Panzer III, Panzer IV, Panzer V, and Panzer VI, a new gun was developed, which was the SU-85, and the enhanced firepower model was the SU-100 assault guns. The SU-100 assault guns used the T-34/85 tank’s frame and was the last product from the derived tanks. It was produced in September 1944 and until the end of 1944, 500 tanks were produced and in 1945, 1145 tanks were produced.
In early 1934/35, General Heinz Guderian is making plans to use Panzer III the basic vehicle for the future Germany panzer division’s main force. This vehicle has a main battle tank equipped with antitank artillery and 2-rifle machine guns and was scheduled as the “Critical Commanding Vehicle”. Beginning in June 1941, among them, Panzer III J/1 was mounted with a 50mm KwK 39 L/60 cannon was mounted, and the defense was increased, and it had stronger firepower than the original 3rd issue tank.
Beginning in March 1944, this tank, which was created in the Malishev factory in Kharkov, was at the time during WWII possibly the best tank in the world because of its excellent armour, fire power, and mobility. During WWII, though subsequent tanks excelled above this tank in terms of armament, this tank was assessed to be the most effective and efficient, and hugely impacted tank design. Additionally, it is also the tank that was produced second most in the world.
Well those are cool and all but what about the CBT2 info you said you had?
Oh right. I said I'd tell you about that. Well the skinny is pretty straight forward. We will be beginning CBT2 near the end of March or the Beginning of April. In the beginning we'll be stress testing 100 players at a time to make sure everything is functioning as planned. Once that is done we will jump into either CBT2 (if things go poorly) or OBT (if things go swimmingly).
I'm excited for it and I do look forward to playing all of you. As I've said before, we have the best community of any online game I've ever been a part of :). Keep on tankin'
(Oh man that last line was corny)
