04/11/2015 Stream (Ended)

Hello Warriors,

Its time for livestreaming!

Tonight I will be playing World of Tanks and going to do Viewer Platoon! (I have all tiers and types of tanks to match and don't discriminate stats.)

201 Tanks and EU:

Lets do this!

Yuri Pasholok Q&A (04/11/2015)

- Regarding the Type 62 and WZ-131 in WoT, it's a successful example of making a light tank out of a medium one. The Americans wanted to do the same thing (T20 Medium Tank into T21) but in the end didn't do it for a number of reasons, but in the case of the Type 62, the vehicle was successful since it's still in service in a number of countries
- The ingame 121/121B are predecessors of Type 69, which was an improved version of Type 59. The 121 designation was selected because WoT has a limit on how old (or rather new) vehicles can appear in the game (and 1969 was too new), although this limit was later broken anyway in order to provide some nations with adequate hightier vehicles (for example the case of STB-1)
- Wargaming Tactical Press (the publishing company responsible for Wargaming books) stopped working for a "number of reasons"
- Yuri Pasholok's book on "land cruisers" (giant vehicles such as Ratte) is almost ready but since he's really busy this year (for example working on Swedish tank data), it won't be finished until December. Whether it will be published is another question.
- KV-5 with 152mm gun is apparently a fake
- The tankers in WW2 generally did not aim at weakspots but simply at the middle of the hull
- guns BL-9 and S-26-1 share identical barrels, the main feature of the S-26 was that the mechanism was unified with the 130mm version
- The 1915 "Rubinsky Factory Tank" a fake? "Hard to say" - Yuri Pasholok mostly deals with 1925-1950 tank development.

- The Korean Koksan is a practical proof that it's possible to put a ridiculously large gun on small chassis (such is the case of the Grille 15 WT E-100 replacement)
- The chance that Begleitpanzer 57 will appear in WoT is zero (too new)
- There were several vehicles (including for example the Renault FT and some Japanese vehicles such as Ha-Go and Chi-Ha) that had the gun mounted in a turret but also in a mount that allowed limited horizontal traverse without moving the turret (a combination of turret and SPG mount), this is not really needed in the game but it existed.

Armored Warfare Newscaster Maria Anokhina

Hello Warriors,

I've said previously that who ever is giving job interviews at Armored Warfare is pretty good at picking the girls, its probably the company with the most gorgeous girls in the industry but this...I'm not sure about. This is the new newscaster for Armored Warfare (Russia only), Maria Anokhina:

She also did a Photoshoot for Maxim and have to say that she has... a intricate tattoo, just google her name and tell me what you think.

And what I think is that although some eye candy doesn't hurt, I wonder if she has more than just looks but not that it seems to matter for AW RU, apparently the job contest was based on "pretty face" (and rudimentary reading skills to read a Teleprompter). I will also assume AW RU wanted a prettier/better girl than WoT RU but in this they have lost, although she has the job because of her father, Olga leaves to the imagination and you can see that she actually a smart & sweet girl and good at what she does, that in my opinion is worth much more.


But lets wait for her first work before we bring out the "Shame Nun".

leKpz M 41 90 mm Screenshots

Hello Warriors,

Have some screenshots of the leKpz M 41 90 mm for you:

leKpz M 41 90 mm

Hello Warriors,

while WoT Xbox is getting the Brazilian Walker Bulldog "Pracinha", the PC version of WoT will be getting a German variant instead, the leKpz M 41 90 mm. And although I'm trying hard to not be biased here because I would love to have the Pracinha instead, unlike the Brasilian variant this one not explode and is not a fake either.


German variant of the M41A1 Walker Bulldog light tank modernization. The main change was the replacement of the 76mm M32 gun that was re-bored to 90mm and was made 425mm shorter.
