me want!1!!1 :Pfinaly some nice/modern looking german tank
any informations about stats? :Dand thx for the blog its great good job
Nope, not this time, sorry
Thx so finally no german cry babys whining about a tank that's being nerfed (or buffed) in the process of balancing on the supertestserver(!!!). As if they wouldn't know that most of the stats will change till release..And when I read their crying (most of the time in the form of insulting other nations/ devs) I feel ashamed of being a German...
funny these guys crying about guys that cry...
Its time for a german tank who candeal with other nations. Otherwise german tree is trash.
See Tiger II in game. In WW2 all countries has to poop, but in game its a joke ;) Germans on front!!! ;)
Wehraboo is that you?
"See Tiger II in game. In WW2 all countries has to poop, but in game its a joke ;) Germans on front!!! ;)"WoT is not a simulation.WoT is not a simulation.WoT is not a simulation.WoT is not a simulation.WoT is not a simu...one day even those crybabys will understand it...
"funny these guys crying about guys that cry..."its not the crying... its the way they do it... or to you think insulting other nations or devs is they way to criticize some changes?
What will the "crybabys" understand? There is something you don't understand - WG is trying to make the game as much accurate as it's possible but they keep nerfing Germans, why is it so?
Shame there's no L1A3 turret =/
Ry0ken here:Would the anti German crybabies please step aside and stfu.And yeah maybe with Leo1 the German tech tree may finaly get a tank usable for T10TC and CW in larger numbers! But be aware WG for some reasons seems to hate German tanks! The modell itself does look georgeous! :)
How did this turn into crying about crying and crying. xDMore on a constructive note: Leopard 1 looks awesome.MTWEmperor (No hiding behind "Anonymous"
"See Tiger II in game. In WW2 all countries has to poop, but in game its a joke ;) Germans on front!!! ;)"Seriously? Learn how to playthe tank before you say such bullshit.New meds look awesome, me thinks i'll get the DB asap.Channel911
Hell yeah!!Any details about stats?
Looks like ice-cream on a conveyor belt.Me gusta.
ah nice to see, that the leo prototype gets the L7, too!
seems like it, would be really great!!
A tier IX medium armed with tier X gun is always awsome. I'm having fun with Cent. Mk. 7/1 and WZ-120
yeah, thats right! The only thing that bothers me, is the gold ammo of the L7!
Königlich Wehrmaterial cannon? (Fail Google-Translate German for "Royal Ordinance")
Will the gold ammo be HESH, like the britsh L7 got?
Yes, Storm wrote that.
Why not the 183mm Hesh ammo, I've really grown fond of that one^^Thnx for the pics, can't wait to get them, still at least 20k on my DB to go for the Indian tank.I'm not that much into mediums, but I make another exception here ;)Snortsch
I hoped, that it would be HEAT, because the HESH ammo of the L7 underperforms a bit, because only 90 damage more at a place where you can pen the enemy with normal ammo, too and that for 4 to 5 times the cost isnt really good!
Cant wait for people to complain about the HESH ammo. It will probably have a shitty HESH pen, because GERMAN tank.
Thanks Frank for posting these pics and a big thanks to the donor!
It's nice to see some top secret pics from time to time. (I already voted on the latest poll - "bring it on")But we got so many "hot" pictures lately about super tested tanks - won't it cause some troubles? (I mean to your source... sooner or later KGB finds him :D)
Well, truth to be told, that's his choice. He knows about the risks. But I think that unless something really big comes out (WG decidedes to implement Abrams big), we'll have a break now.
Why the paranoia? As a programmer myself I can tell you that watermarking SS's is hours upon hours of work ... no way they did that.But their database administrator can catch him if and only if he betrays UNIQUE information about his account like credit/gold mount, crew members' names etc... Other than that all they can do is fume.
Rear tansmission =)
Yep! They cannot fit it in front because of the big fat ammo rack ;)
I really hope your 'source' doesn't get caught by all of this. I mean, I'm sure everyone is with me that it's Frigging FANTASTIC to finally see these, but I do have to admit I'm a little uneasy by the 'flood' of info now, and if WN feels insecure about these leaks then there are more ways than just watermarks to discover them.But, yes, thanks, and keep up the Great work here!
it's like the existing tier 10 mediums put their rings together and there was a big flash of light... and theme music...:D
The blood just disappeared from my head and went to umm.... you know. When I saw the pic of Leopard 1 :)
They look so rusty... :(
I'm tired of sterile tanks. We need more battle-worn tanks!
What is that turret of the leopard 1? Can I get a real life pic? The prototype looks somewhat sexyer, more "curves"!
my body is ready
Pride of the Fatherland! They should make it so, that at start of every battle in this tank, you hear a strophe from Panzerlied :-)Great mobility, good gun and all-round spaced armor!
Hmmm...im'a bit dissapointed...less then i expect, not even close look like http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/21/Leopard1_cfb_borden_2.JPG
Cause the one in WoT was always gonna be a 0 series Leo 1 with the cast instead of the later welded turret.
That's the welded turret with late additional armor from the 80's.
Wow, this means at least light branch is finished, VK28 T VI, RU251 T VII, and Aufklärungspanzer Panther T VIII, and here we have the last ones, Leopard Prot. T IX and Leopard T X
Aufklärungspanther is T7, RU251 T8
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rab8cxw1YfMget ready ;)
it smells like they are going to be BIG meds AGAIN....
Ofc they will. Eventough it's nice to see finally some german more modern tank i have no doubts at all they'll find a way to screw it up. And by the look on these screenshots they're gonna be big, at least bigger than it should bcs fuck historical facts when it's about real tank. Better increase that Lowe again to it's historical values. We'll just ignore the fact it never existed.
the problem is some expect it to be OP and compensate their lack of skill and then cry when its "just" balanced...btw u never heard the word: blueprints?
On wiki there is written high 2,7m and type 59 have high 2,59 m(both with turret)
ofc leo es big, but in the game its going to be bigger than it should... that turret is going to be or bouncy as hell or a target for all shots.short cannon? :/ or maybe its me?everything can change, they are just being tested, but since this is WG and they are german tanks, dont expect the leo to be as good as it is IRL
So if i get this right, these 2 are going to be mediums in 3002db line, right?
I belive that tech tree will look this way. (With 100k xp on DB I hope :-D)http://wiki.fbfu.de/images/German_selfmade.png
i hope it will be 90k xp, otherwise i will have to use free xp :-)
I hope that WG will release something else instead of Leo as "punishment" for leaking stuff -_- And if that smartass leaker is reading this: F*** You
Why do you dislike the guy who leaked this? Why would you care, if you dont wanna know you can just choose not to read this blog
I think that this leaks are benefical for WG. It is raising interest in their game, people are more talking about it. WG didnt promised this stuff so if he failed/decided not use it only one who will lost trust is the leaker.
U mad? :)
Sadly you're becoming an attention whore :) Too bad, i really liked your Q&A topic
Anon 1 and 2 have something real wrong in their heads. I presume its the same dumb person.
That's okay. Probably a Czech, or some twat. Actually, I've been getting some hate mail for "getting too big" - some people just can't stand when someone enjoys what he does and makes his operation bigger.
Zeptej se na mne v české sekci fora, uvidíš proč :) Nakonec, nebylo by to poprve.
Českým diskuzním fórům se snažím vyhýbat ;-)
To naprosto chápu.
What a troll. *Troll Begone Spray*MTWEmperor (Not hiding behind "Anonymous")
Why aren't there any german crosses?
Both tanks had Bundeswehr crosses, not the regular ones AFAIK (check the Indienpanzer picture).
But there is no crosses on images, not wermacht nor bundeswehr ones. But i think it is just a temporary and final tank will have emblems.
Actually the Bundeswehr Crosses are the correct ones, not the Wehrmacht Balkenkreuz modifications.
The Leo1P seems to have been given the Centurion 7/1 treatment from the shots, T10 gun on a T9 chassis. Also a better L7 variant which uses HEAT instead of the semi-useless HESH of the 4202.
Im so looking forward to this one! its going to be epic! dont really care about 8.4! give me 8.5! Leo1 and RU251 FTW!!!!!!
Have it 0,28 accuracy gun?
Remember, we all raved on the Centurion, and look how that turned out.
Like, the most OP tier9 med?
There's a difference. Centurion is sluggish and everyone who knew something about the vehicle knew it wouldn't be fast. Leopard will be nimble, it will have a decent gun and good accuracy. Besides, let's face it, it looks badass.
Sorry, I meant to say Conqueror. Although the Mark 1 and FV4202 aren't exactly fantastic...
We already have a medium with a decent gun and accuracy, the 50 M. This will just be slightly faster with zero armor and the same DPM. People rave just because it is something new for a struggling nation. Batchat without an autoloader and average DPM.
I sense BatChat without revolver loader, with gun handcafted by the smiths of the supreme precision.Me want! Now!
why not this Leopard :http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/21/Leopard1_cfb_borden_2.JPGWG's Lepoard is fucking ugly
Because that's a late production Leopard, an A3. The Leopard being introduced in the game is that A1 with the exact same turret you see here.
nope, A1 is upgraded version with side skirt and few modifications, and A1 will not be introduced in game. The Leopard 1 in WOT will be the first production series.
could anyone tell me from where will these tanks branch off? in order for me to start grinding the starting tanks,Congratulations on an excelent blog! it's my obligatory read every morning
Probably from VK3002 DB -> Idien Panther -> Leopard Prototype -> Leopard IOdious Slug[CSF]
Anyone know when about leopard 1 will be coming out? Early summer? That probably means 8.5 will have a larger gap between the last update.
April, according to the Russian official "in development" page
Is there anything you heard of Pz Kpfw KV-1? tnx
It was said a few months ago that captured tanks are not planned for 2013
damn, I'm really hoping for German t5 premium heavy. Tnx for a fast reply
looks like the IS8. i expect nothing but copypast and poor map design from WG but if this thing is is8 with a 1000hp engine im down to boogie =D. inc german nerf. this thing will need a traverse nerf shortly after release. maus, e100 and e50m should expect a nerf about the same time for "historical reasons". oh goody
This looks promising, but knowing SerB, he'll "balance" it with either making up a front-mounted transmission, making the gun slow-firing or inaccurate, making the ammo rack really easy ignite or something else along those lines.
