Are they going to have an ‘ABBA’ inscription? How about ‘Pippi Longstocking’? 🙂
zomg go cavs, go sweden, go ikea!
they are all fake. WG didnt listen to their historical experts and just made stuff up.
Just out of curiosity what would have been historically correct?
Technically having no inscriptions at all would be most historical since they were banned untill the 80s. However there were some real ones on vehicles used during UN missions or in non combat roles. i have a album with some examples http://imgur.com/a/hEQXQ
I should also state that the cammo we have seen thus far seems to be fake and the kill rings are completely fake too. Oh and the crew pictures are actually Russian’s in Swedish uniforms. Expect a full article on everything that went wrong after we have seen the full tree.
Is it really that hard to find some Swedish folks? or use some pictures for referens? I really thought the pictures was odd, but didn’t want to say anything as i… well didn’t have any proof.
So ban vehicle personalising for historical accuracy in an arcade game.
Yeah I’m on that side of the internet again.
What did we write on our tanks IRL?
Historical or not, I’m still going to plaster Kunglig Hovleverantör on all my Swedish tanks though.
I have seen Katla on a Strv 104. Personally think i’ll go with “Ring så kommer vi” 😛
Waiting to hear the crew voice files now :3
Ja du basih din lilla groda
How about “this way to Norway” or “Would you like to buy some ball bearings” Both written in German?
or ” the vikings are here”
They forgot the “Sweden yes!” and “Allahu snackbar” inscriptions.
No hard feelings. But for how long will they neglect and ignore 100% historical and possible Italian tech tree ? A plethora of real tanks to put in the game.
“So ban vehicle personalising for historical accuracy in an arcade game”
If you actually read what i said then you would know i had suggestions for real inscriptions. Im not saying that there shoudnt be inscriptions for sweden, i am saying is that WG should have based the inscriptions on the historical ones. Instead they made a bunch up.
Plus not to mention that if Wargaming wanted to keep the Scandinavian theme going, there are entire scores of Finnish inscriptions, mostly names, that could have been used. While unhistorical for Sweden, they would at least be historical.
Scandinavian theme with Finnish? What?
I’m really REALLY hoping I can get a “Gott mit Uns” inscription for my Swedish tanks.
Ah, I wanted to put “Bork Bork Bork” on all my Swedish tanks.
Id like to see Captain Sweden
Where are the “Sweden Yes!” and “allahu akbar” inscriptions ?
heh, i’ll translate these, because some of them are fun
>swe – eng
>arvet förpliktar – legacy commits (last work is a modified form of duty aswell)
>fort och fel – fast and wrong
>Framåt! – Forwards!
>Gamla Bettan – Old betty/ old reliable
>Heja Sverige – Go sweden (what is this, football?)
>Kunglig hovleverantör – Royal Purveyor
>Lisa, Lollo, Lotta, Maggan, Maja, Gittan, Nettan, Ulla – [names]
>Moder Svea – Mother sweden (Svea is a female name aswell]
>Nulli Secundus – never second, second to none (this is latin though)
>Ring så kommer vi – Call and we’ll come
>Slå snabbt- slå Hårt – Hit fast- hit hard
>V-gurra- idk what this is. V could be victory, “gurra” is however common a nickname for someone named “Gustav”
hope it helped
Gustaf V was the king of Sweden from 1907 to 1950 (the time span used in WoT roughly) and was affectionately called V-gurra
“V-gurra” was a nickname for the Swedish king Gustav V.
“Nulli Secundus” is the motto for the 2nd life grenadier regiment.
“Arvet förpliktar” is the motto for Skaraborg (armoured) Regiment.
“Slå snabbt, slå hårt” was the motto for South Scania Brigade

V-gurra is a nickname for the old king, Gustav V.
V Gurra is what people used to call King Gustav V
Love the LOLLO, LOL. 😀
V-gurra is the nickande for The Swedish king Gustav V Adolf, who was king of Sweden during both ww1 and ww2.
they forgot one writing option: Finland är en buffert
Why the heck would there be inscriptions in German on Swedish tanks, not to mention the “allauh akbar” non-sense..?
“Scandinavian theme with Finnish? What?”
In Sweden, Scandinavian and Nordic are often (and erroneously) used synonymously, mostly since Finland was part of Sweden for close to 800 years.
Where is the classical “Döda ryssen & må bra!” ?!
Why not use: Carolus Rex, Lilla Gubben, Alfons Åberg, Ur vägen!, Gul & Blå, Klart bakåt!, Kung & Fosterland, “Helikopter”, Kattla, Nordens Lejon, Farbror Melker, Herr Nilsson och så vidare… 🙂
