Endless and Teru and I spent some time platooned. I missed a game, but we came out ahead for the session (65% for me, 57% for them).

I did note at one point that taking three KV-1Ses out at the same time makes us look like one of those platoons.

I got to appreciate how hilariously silly the big 122mm for the KV-1S is... in one game, I totally disassembled a few small tanks with it, then tried to kill a SturmPanzer at point-blank range and missed. I was actually able to reload and shoot again about two feet away from ramming it to death.

How does a Panther II drag your win down? I am 2 win away from 60% on it.

What Endless? You mentioned our KV-1S platoon, and neglected the OTHER triple-tank platoon we did? You know, where our three stugs pretty much rampaged our way through the Eastern Forest at Murovanka? AND we survived to tell the tale? For shame.

There is a reason Heavy Tanks reliant on armor disappeared from modern day armor doctrine and got replaced with MBT's, which rely on mobility and firepower. In fact, the 60's saw Germany and France build MBT's that had incredibly thin armor (75 - 80mm at thickest) in order to gain better mobility while still carrying powerful guns, said tanks being the Leopard 1 and the AMX-30 respectively. Incidentally, both tanks are planned to be introduced in the game as Tier 10 mediums.

Although armor is making a comeback due to the realities of asymmetrical urban combat.

Did you mean this StuG rampage? Actually, you two were rampaging more than I was. I was a bit off my game especially in regards to sniping moving targets. I did much better in this battle with my Sniper Stug.

Someplace reported that the modern Russian 125mm smoothbore can fire a missile that can penetrate 37 inches of steel.

I thought about that for a momemt. So at 6km a T-80 could possibly punch a hole through Yamato (assuming the missile didn't explode like it was suppose to inside the ship) by going though the first side's belt armor, through the ship, and out the other side's belt armor like the RPGs use to do the Navy PBR's in Vietnam.

Of course Yamato could in theory return the favore at upwards of 30km with 18.1 inch shells. Even the 6.1 inch shells would probably be enough from 10km away.

Two players managed to win by capturing while there were eight enemies after them. This is why you should never give up.

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

I also bought the Chinese T-34, to benefit from the extra credit bonus this weekend as you can see I need it.

I felt a little off in that Murovanka battle also, which is why I didn't mention it. I have a habit of shooting at things in the woods that are actually being spotted behind cover, which makes me feel stupid.

So these are some of the highlights:

KV-1S platoon win.

T-34 platoon win. (Well, two T-34s and a StuG.)

Got the second turret on the IS now, and I've got to say it's good to have my preciousssssss back.

And, to my very pleasant surprise, the second turret also lowers the reload time of the 122mm D2-5-T (on my KV-1s the reload time is 13.8s with 100% crew and on my IS it's 13.03s with 94% crew ).

A defeat, but a very fun defeat. Got the Cool-Headed Commemorative Achievement, and bullied a Type 59 into the deep lake.

39 defeats 7 victories...

Thats how bad today was for me =/

Took over an hour to get a win in the cromwell even though I was doing alright my teams where just.....useless.

Such a frustrating day but I did manage to get an alright amount of XP from my elite tanks that I'll use for the brit TD line when it gets added so hopefully all the pain was worth it.

I Shot the Sheriff

(And got Top Gun, and crushed a StuG, and caused another JagdPanther player to wail and gnash his teeth...)

Good job, Endless. Quite suspenseful as I was wondering how you would get the Sheriff with only 400hp, but then you just went in like a boss and took him down.

Got a 24 hour suspension for TKing a troll platoon. Still, I suppose it was worth it.

I had a Sheriff on my team that was in a derp Hetzer. Then there was the aforementioned Matilda IV Sheriff that was being escorted by all of that team's heavies.
