AA Tanks in WT

Any one know if we well be seeing AA Tanks for the Army?

If we do the germans are going to be getting a lot of AA tanks

The germans get

 

Flakpanzer IV Mobelwagen using the 20mm Flak 38 Flakvierling or 37mm Flak 43

Flakpanzer IV Wirbelwind using a 20mm Flak 38 Flakvierling

Flakpanzer IV Ostwind using a 37mm Flak 43

Flakpanzer IV Kugelblitz using two 30mm MK103's

Grille 10 (Still a Panzer IV) Using a 88mm Flak 37 or Flak 41

Flakpanzer I using a 20mm Flak 38

 

For the US

M19 Gun Motor Carriage twin 40 mm M2's(a US Bofors)

M16 MGMC  4 12.7 M2's

M15 CGMC 2 M2's 1 37mm M1

 

For the Brits

Crusader III AA Mk I using a 40mm Bofors + a autoloader

Crusader III AA Mk II/III using 2 20mm Oerlikons and 1 .303 Vickers GO

 

For the Soviets

ZSU-37 using 1 37 mm M1939

 

And for Japan well

the Type 98 using 2 Type 2 20mm's

 

So how will AA tanks be balanced?

Maybe also the Flakpanzer IV "Kugelblitz", which was build in low quanteties near the end of the war and studied by allies afterwards:

Of course the Flakpanzer 38t "Gepard":

And maybe the Flakpanzer V "Coelian", which saw testing with an wooden model of the new turret on a Panther's chassis:

We really should, seeing as they are going to integrate air, land and sea in the same battle.

Kugelblitz is like the coolest tank ever, also I was in battle (of berlin) so they can't deny it! >_<'

The Germans tended to remove the AA MG mounted outside the tank however, outside of on the Stug 3 as it was remote controlled.

I believe there was a developer statement some time ago that there would be AA ground vehicles, but they would only be available to be used in ground-only maps.

 

*goes looking*

What the.... fudge...?

 

That defeats the purpose! that defeats the ENTIRE purpose.

 

 

What are you going to do? start shooting 50cal's at a Maus? you'd do more damage kicking it with your boot.

That sounds stupid. So stupid in fact, that I don't think such a statement even exists out there. Unless if this is yet another display of Gaijin's amazing English skills, in which they originally meant that you'd first be able to shoot only AI planes with your AA when ground forces beta finally gets released.

any vehicle could be mounted with AA mounts. its not a matter of "type of vehicle". you could fit a tank gun on a willies jeep. and that went just fine.

 

anyways, most of the proposed vehicles would be only working or useful in large groups, against aircraft. since most of them came around only later in the war, they'd only be used for AA or more rarely (for most vehicles atleast) as inf support. but again, these are inferior to tanks, there's a reason why after 1941 any tank without a typical shell-firing cannon was discarded.

 

 

if these are going to be put into use or gameplay it should be just in tactical skirmishes, attacking enemy vehicles, positions, or providing inf support. not in actual combat. if they are going to be used as AA, then I hope they implement abit of RTS here, so you command a battalion or unit of AA vehicles and defend positions and such.

I feel like the translation is causing some problems here, they said in tank games meaning that the Mobile AAA you see on the ground in plane matches won't be controllable but in fact they'll add them in the army section and they'll be available in both ground forces and combined forces matches, just my understanding however.

 

Anyways I'd personally love to see these vehicles in game as the are quite good little vehicles and will certainly be capable of doing damage to smaller tanks, AA positions and Artillery positions.  :)s
