You can't get the Pnz 4 by going with the Pnz III. A. You get the Pnz 3/4 which is a great tank and I think it is better than the Pnz 4. I had the Pnz 3/4, then the VK3001(H) (I love that tank!). I can research the Panther but waiting on 22k credits.

I am not sure how you like to play. Mediums, heavies, or lights. But I am going for the E-50 for my largest medium. I have the KV right now and am heading for the IS-7 for a Heavy. For a TD I have the StuGIII and I am going for the Jagdtiger for a good TD. For artillery I have the M7 Priest, I am aiming for the T92. Then for a scout I have the T-50 (I LOVE THIS), going for the T-50-2, after having decided that this was the best line for a scout. I have something of each depending on how I want to play, and if one tank get's destroyed.

I have something of each depending on how I want to play, and if one tank get's destroyed.
In video games in general I usually at least start as a sniper-in Beta I played around with arty a fair deal and I've always had an SPG in my garage, and I've started on the Soviet TD line (got an SU-76 now). I have an M37 at the moment. Usually I end up doing other things though. At the moment, with the tanks I have, it kind of seems like I can ONLY be a scout unless I'm using an SPG or TD. The Stuart, Pz III A, and BT-2 I have lend themselves to scouting. A lot of the next tanks will be basically the same methinks.

I heard that the III/IV is disliked by a lot of people, or at least isn't as good as the Pz IV, but I suppose it depends what modules are on each. I'll shoot for that tank and hopefully start raking in more money to get something perhaps better, on a different track.

I'm following that route.

Also, I have a question for anyone who can answer it. I have a Panzer III A and just bought a Panzer III and they have parts commonality. Can I take parts out of my Panzer III A and use them in my Panzer III? Or do I have to buy them again?

I think you can. Select the III A in your garage and hover your mouse over the boxes underneath it that display the engine, gun and so on. Click on the part you want to change and select the part that you want to install. That should free up whatever parts you need for the III.


Is anybody else growing tired at the one and only game mode? I'm really looking forward to seeing the historical mode which will be released at some point this year. Considering how long the game has been released, including beta time, I would have thought new modes would have been a higher priority.

Ahhh man!!!! I just sold a bunch of expensive stuff that I could have put on my Panther!

I can't think of which tank exactly, but it was one I got recently-I bought it, and it seemed like almost the entire tech tree was already filled out.

Historical mode? that sounds interesting-I'll have to check it out. I've always thought that a sort of infantry support type mode would be interesting for the urban type maps. Only problem is that you wouldn't have to support infantry if you're in a Maus-YOU'RE YOUR OWN support...so there may have to be restrictions to like tier VI and below. Of course that would be partial to those tiers, so you'd have to have other game modes too. The current game mode at least is sort of a 2 in 1, but I wonder at maybe a free for all mode? Or what about something like Headquarters or Domination?

Tetrarch is a nice tank, matchmaker is kind to it and the gun is excellent. Takes forever to zero, but its accuracy is great!

Armour is ok, speed is good, turning is ok. Overall, a great little tank

That's sort of what I've heard when I ask in game about it.

I'll be painfully grinding my KV-1S for quite a while. It's completely upgraded. If that's in a battle I'll probably be playing a lower tier tanks, like my M8A1 or something.
