As announced in Update 1.6.1, the game will feature a unified historical 2D pattern “Jäger” (“Hunter”) for all nations.
The pattern has the usual Summer, Desert and Winter schemes and can be used by any nation tier or type. Like previous camos (Black widow pattern) it is available in-game for 750 gold.
This time we have the completed HD model and textures.
The Turtle name is a WG joke on the Tortoise. The vehicle was the result of a the School of Tank Technology project in 1946, unfortunately the concept was already obsolete. Very little documentation survives save for a single image with the layout and dimensions. According to Ed Francis (historian at Bovington tank museum, responsible for providing a lot of interesting information about British tanks) WG did a good job during the reconstruction of the vehicle, so we can assume that it is faithful to the concept.
