First Polish tank spotted: B.B.T.Br.Panc.

63

Hello,

As you may know Polish tanks are making their way into the game, WG has shared the first official screenshots and info about it, its a tier IV Medium tank which is most likely to be a Premium.
The development of this medium tank took place in Poland, January 1937 with “Czołg średni w/g proj. B.B.T.Br.Panc.” as project name.
In October. 1937 a variant was proposed by the Technical Research Armored Arms Bureau (BBT Br. Panc.) by Major R. Gundlach.
The project was suspended and only mock ups were created.

    Just an observation, I know you’re still working out the new site.
    I couldn’t find any normal way to bring up the high quality versions of those pictures which is a shame as that’s one very nice looking tank at 1440p. 🙂

    So why exactly does poland get a Tech tree before Italy or Sweden?
    I mean i don’t want to be hating on the Polish ( i still wait for a swiss tech tree so well done for poland to get SerB to notice you first ^^)
    Well my point is: as far as i know the best known thing milytary wise about poland is the fact that they got roflstomped by germany at the start of the war.
    Unless i’m missing something major then please correct me.

      You are missing two important non-historical facts: 1) Polish community is either the largest or the second largest in EU 2) Polish vehicles are coming to Armored Warfare

      Poland fought Germany and Russia for entire month without preparation, France fought Germany for entire month even after they had time to get prepared. I think Poland came out better in that situation

    WG said that Poland tanks will be premiums only… I think that a lot of Poles will expect a full tech tree now and when they realize the truth it will get ugly,:/…

    “They are trying to find Polish vehicles as well but there is no way Polands builds an entire branch to tier 10, highest realistic Polish tier is 4;”

    So what am I supposed to feel? Will Poland get its entire branch up to tier X or are they just going to add tech tree with the highest tier being IV?

        Also i thought the possibility that Poland could not get their own tech tree, as the highest possible tier they could muster was tier 4? it is true that this have caught my interesst to what possible tanks they will add. but im equally miffed about the sudden change. to many feelings ovah ‘ere

    The red&white marks on turret are wrong. It’s a symbol of Polish Air Forces (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_Air_Force_checkerboard). At some point in history Polish tanks had similiar symbol, but it was rotated by 45 degrees (diamond like on this T-55AM: http://pl.uzbrojenie.wikia.com/wiki/Plik:431_t_55am.jpg). But at pre war times, when this tank was proposed (it was actually concept of 20/25TP: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/20/25TP) Polish Tanks has symbol of gold chinese dragon (https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plik:God%C5%82o_czo%C5%82g%C3%B3w.png) was used, but mainly as a badge on uniforms – it was rarely painted on tanks itself.

      Dude.. you are confusing A LOT of things…
      1) During WW2 the symbol used on tanks, was a white, Polish eagle
      2) the diagonal red-white checkers were used from 1949 to 1991
      3) In 1991 the modern, “straight” checker symbol was adapted
      4) the dragon (and it wasn’t Chinese… it was supposed to be the Wawel dragon form the Kraków legend) was used only as tanker specific marking, BUT in WoT they use NATION specific marks, so the checkers, or white eagle should be used, as appropriate for the time period.

    This tank is more croatian according to the little red cubes in the logo. 😀 Also from what i know brave Poland cavalry attacked German tanks during WWII and failed miserably – so why not put horse and soldier for premium instead of this? 😀 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charge_at_Krojanty

      Did you even read the page that you linked to?

      “The incident became notable as reporters visiting the site soon after saw the dead bodies of horses and cavalrymen which led to false reports of Polish cavalry attacking German tanks. Nazi propaganda took advantage of this, suggesting that the Poles attacked intentionally, believing that the Germans still had the dummy tanks the Versailles treaty restrictions had permitted them. The scene of Polish cavalry charging the Panzers with their lances has become a modern-day myth.”

    Don’t be mad, that WG puts into game polish tanks before swedish (for example). It’s all about money (Obsidian is going to add it too).
    The truth is we ain’t got enough own projects to build whole tree (max tier isn’t 4, but 5/6, there is a project of 25 tons medium tank by inż. Habich, armed with 75mm aa gun). All the talk about the full tree is based on official WG info (i really don’t know how and what are they going to do).

    Hope that they are not going to add them to the Russian tech tree. The early projects have more common with British tanks. Hope that will be bouncy as Matilda. Should have spare driver as this drivers front plate doesn’t look strong.
    Cant wait for Tankette, Orlik’s tank 🙂

  28. “The project was suspended and only mock ups were created”. Which basically means WG had to come up with fake stats for it. That in itself is no surprise as there are even less historical tanks in the game. But if they had to resort to this at tier 4… Considering that Poland had some quite advanced designs for light tanks, was occupied in 1939 (which is pretty early in other nations’ tech trees) and used Soviet tanks after the war, one can only wonder how exactly the full tech tree will look like…
