So here is part 3 of the Swiss Wowp tech tree.
Since we have covered all the main lines we will now list all of the premiums we have in the tree. Now these are just the projects we thought would be great premiums but there are a bunch more projects which could be premium but we have not included due to various reasons but there are more possible premiums if needed.
Tier 2 :Häfeli DH-5S MVa ( Fighter)
Designed by August Häfeli in 1929 as an armed reconnaissance and trainer aircraft. With it’s 7.5mm synchronized machine gun and it’s rear gun it would be a nice tier 2 candidate.
Since part 1 of the Tech tree showcase series went well. We decided to continue with part 2 of the Swiss World of Warplanes Tech tree including the heavy fighter line and the Ground Attacker line.
Heavy fighter line:
Tier 5: P-2110
The Heavy fighter line starts from the C-3601 and at tier 5 we have the P-2110 which is extremely reminiscent of the BF 110 heavy fighter.
It has 2 1250 hp engines and has a calculated top speed of 544 km/h it mounted 4 7.5mm MGs and 2 20mm guns in the nose of the plane and has 1 twin 7.5mm MG in the rear of the cockpit. Continue reading
Greetings everyone, since Wowp 2.0 is in the works and is, as of yet, very well received considering it’s past. Blockhaj and I have decided to show some of the Tech tree proposals we have worked on in the last couple of months.
Today we start with the first part of the swiss tree as this is one of the 2 nations where we have the most information gathered, the other one being the swedish tree, there are however many other trees we have prepared as well.
However for the Swiss tree we are starting with the 2 fighter lines which will end in 2 tier 9 and 10s per line.
The fighter line, or in this case, Multi role fighter lines will be divided by manufacturer: Dornierwerke Altenrhein ( Doflug), later Flug- und Fahrzeugwerke Altenrhein ( FFA) and
Eidgenössische Flugzeugwerke Emmen ( EFW)
Note that this is merely a proposal so planes are subject to change.
Tier 1: Wild X

The latest in the series. Enjoy.
Thanks to everyone for asking questions. I hope i can give you a better insight into the Swiss tech tree with my answers.
Here we go:
-Would you consider Austrian tanks as premiums in a tech tree?
-Also, are there any Austrian tanks that could be fitted into the Swiss tree?
Since the Saurer RK-9 is gonna be the tier 1 tank in order to prevent another Renault FT to be the tier 1 tank. It should be possible for WG to add the SK-105, however i have no power or knowledge over where WG will add the SK-105, in the swiss tree it could either be a premium tier 8 TD or maybe a tier 10 light tank alternative in case the swiss tier 10 light tank would be rejected. The other option is that WG throw it into the german tree or a standalone premium. Only time will tell. Continue reading

WB-10, Polish Medium tank prototype from 1927
The WB-10 (sometimes written W.B.10) was the first tank designed and built in Poland. It was also one of the only Polish interwar armored vehicles that was completely original. Without drawing inspiration from foreign vehicles, as was the case with the TK tankettes or 7TP. The WB-10 was planned as a successor to the French-bought Renaults FT. Unfortunately, the WB-10 was a complete failure and the whole project landed in the dustbin of history.
Very little information has remained to this day. Two photos exist which are speculated to be of the WB-10 prototypes, somewhere near Warsaw in 1939. A supposed drawing of the vehicle is also widely circulated on the internet, but it is not compatible with the vehicles seen in the two pictures.
It is highly important to stress that most of the information with regards to this vehicle should be treated with a healthy dose of skepticism until primary sources can be discovered and shed more light on the curious WB-10.

Since so many questions have come up during the last week where i showed off the potential medium, heavy, TD and SPG line i decided to go for another QnA for Switzerland.
So instead of me gathering all the questions on the multiple articles i want to collect them here and release them next sunday.

We don’t normally cover WoWs stuff but I like Forts so here it is.
