    If you're going to make one that big, make it a little bigger so you can ride around in it. And have it shoot something. :lol3

    Scale models are cool and all... but notice how there's no chicks there. :lol3

    I was thinking you could use a paintball gun with a custom barrel.

    we used to shoot bottle rockets with pins in them from our balsa wood remote controlled boats.... when I was 12... but they weren't to scale. :lol3

    I am curious about this and hope I will be able to get my hands on one. They haven't committed to how this will be available outside of the summer clan wars campaign thingy. I imagine it to be a US version of the Cromwell/A-43. I wasn't around when it used to be around.

    The future for Light tanks is very promising! Reworking spotting, more draw range area, and "tier 8 lights be Clan Wars relevant" makes me wonder how much this game is going to change.

    [​IMG]

    made great bank on it though.

    Hate the AMX 13 90. 3 shells into the side of it with my AT7 bounced. Then I was shot in teh back a few times and nothing I could do about it

    Don't worry, they know the AMX 13 90 is underperforming so they're going to buff it, and then buff all lights. So really it's getting buffed twice. :lol3

    Jon and I were dying of laughter last night, thinking about them buffing the 13 90 as we racked up 2&3k damage rounds in our 13 90s. It brought tears to the eyes. :rofl

    I am thinking it is going to be changing a great deal...it is going to have to. I think that the older players are getting tired of it and some of the things that are just wrong with it.

    It has so much going for it however....I really hope they get it sorted.

    Hello. My name is Theaty and I'm in love with another Russian tank.

    [​IMG]

    First, it was Smithy seducing me with that Churchill Three. Her sweet tracks blocking all damage to her body and that fast firing gun making enemies pay repeatedly. And then, oh my, and then a friend bought me a KV-5 -- surprised me with it. And that dear big bear of a tank sure is a sweetie. Here are 3 KV-5s, after rolling the banana, quick-capping the red team in 3:06 of gametime:

    [​IMG]

    And here, with guardian angel Morgue watching over my shoulder, my KV-5 takes flight:

    [​IMG]

    I, of course, missed the trembling medium at the bottom of the hill, but this tank is near perfect. My approach scared it enough that it ran into the rest of the team and died in 15 seconds. Then our AMX 13 F3 had a carry the game moment and saved all of our butts by derping the charging 30 01 in the face, allowing that ISU-152 and I to kill the rest of the enemy except the FV304, who finished off our arty. But I capped out for the win. :deal

    I enjoy taking it to stupid places -- like the air -- and watching the enemy team melt before I even fire. :eek1

    I enjoy hiding my R2D2 and confusing the enemy that now can't pen me. :cry

    I enjoy ramming things. A lot. :evil

    I enjoy its gun depression and speed -- it can be used effectively like an American Heavy. :lol3

    I enjoy giggling endlessly while driving this tank to a 60% win rate. :rofl

    So I'll raise my lunchtime Brandy glass to my KV-5 and the gifter of said tank. May your R2D2 always be hidden. May the Big Russian Bear Premium Cheater Tank always bring you joy. And may your armor never rust. :freaky

    I am beginning to believe that the KV-5 is the original backwards tank. Backwards KV-5 need not worry about little robot, backwards kv-5 need not engine, backwards kv-5 just need target.

    Apparently my little accomplishment isn't so rare.

    I'm grinding my T34 for silver to get me a Jag Pz E100, and last night was golden - lots of 100K+ hauls, even in defeat! :clap

    Can't wait to get to 6M and buy me a Big Boom. :eek1 :1drink
