1.6.1: Turtle Mk.I HD Model


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.

Tank Chats #84 Leopard PRTL


By the Tank Museum Bovington

For TANKFEST 2019, The Tank Museum was extremely lucky to be able to display the Leopard PRTL courtesy of The Historic Collection of the Royal Netherlands Army, in cooperation with the National Military Museum of the Netherlands.

David Willey explores how the self-propelled anti-aircraft system, based on a Leopard 1 tank, works and operates, alongside some footage of the PRTL in action.

Update 1.6.1: Common Test Is Here



During the first Common Test of Update 1.6.1 you take advantage of the new functionality of multinational vehicles. We’re also adding two new customization sets, containing unique historical looks for your vehicles. Finally, you have the opportunity to try out new Ranked Battles mechanics that will be implemented in the next Season. Hop on board and give us your feedback—your input is crucial as we continue evolving these features!

Multinational Vehicles

If you are interested in tanks, you’re probably aware of the unusual history of the fabulous T-34-85 Rudy. In our game, it fights in the ranks of the Soviet Union, but during World War II, this tank was at the disposal of the Polish units fighting in the Red Army. The T-34-85 Rudy was widely known thanks to the TV show “Four Tank-men and a Dog,” and made a significant contribution to Polish culture.

In Update 1.6.1, you can take advantage of the remarkable functionality of multinational vehicles. The first multinational tank will be the legendary T-34-85 Rudy. We’ll credit this tank to all players participating in the testing, so you can try out this new functionality during the Common Test.
