British Camouflague


There has always been something that bothers me about British Camouflague in War Thunder and that is the HUGE selection of Desert Camo but the lack of Urban Camo and Forest camo has always made me quite puzzled

 

Yes. The British in WW2 spent a large portion operating in the Desert and many of our other conflicts we have also been fighting in the Deserts and many of our tanks have also been doing this too but its quite frustrating when I keep getting maps like Fulda Gap and I have a beautiful selection of iridescent desert camos for my enemies to see me in. 

 

Don't lock the few forest camos under Golden Eagles, at least give the British ONE unlockable Forest and Urban camo

even if I have to kill 400 tanks to get it please let us have a camo for every map not just every desert map

 

Maybe make it so that WW2 tanks have a larger selection of Desert Camos but provide later war tanks like Centurion and Cheiftain with more options for camouflagues and its not like our tanks were rarely seen with camouflague here are some examples;

Also, I know you can download camos but why not just give us some good default ones? Nations like US have a good selection of camos that can work on all maps as do the Soviets so why can't we?

The British have a lot of very nice camouflages but sadly you have to pay 200 GE for each of them ... the Americans have it so much better with 9-10 unlockable camouflages (and only one you have to pay for) for half of the tank tree!

Just looking through the Camos, Britain has four desert camouflagues, one winter and one forest camo all locked behind 200 GE

 

Out of the camos you can unlock you get two Desert camos and one winter camo but not a single forest camo! 

 

An Officer Golden Wager, one of the few ways of earning GE without paying allows you to earn between 50 - 1,000 GE however lets say the average earning of a task like this is between 100 GE - 400 GE, a single camo means spending pretty much half or all of your earned GE just to have the ability to blend better on forest maps since European Camouflague is locked by 200 GE and thats only for ONE tank too

When they introduced the UK, they saw it as a golden opportunity to monetize the camos heavily.

 

You can earn a winter camo, but if you want one that is actually white, you have to pay monies :lol2:

Not to mention that the camouflage patterns when applied to the vehicles are all wrong. Particularly with both CR1's and the CR2. Specifically the late Bi-colour European and Desert. No matter how you rotate or scale them they look wrong like Gaijin have just copied and pasted them from the same vehicle. They don't interact with the vehicle like they should. They appear on the road wheels which they shouldn't. The rear quarter is a real mess as they don't appear on the baz plates and appear stretched over the hull at the wrong angles. Dont waste your money. The three solid colour ones are the best options.

I saw in one of the boxes there was a user made Urban Camo, the same in the picture of the Chieftain I posted but in order to use that box you need to pay GE for the key! So an iconic urban camo for the British, something the Chieftain was seen many times in, is stuck in a box and only for the CR2

I feel like the green splotches actually make the tank easier to see on snow based maps

 

Also, I hate it when I accidently start a match with a desert camo loaded onto my tank, nothing like seeing a bright yellow Cromwell zooming around Advance to the Rhine

This camo is also available to the Chieftain Mk.10, and unlockable with a thousand kills, it's called the "Berlin Brigade"...

Tho have fun racking those 500 Chief Mk.10 kills agaisnt 2A5s and Leclercs...

 

Regardless, it'd be good for every nation to get a couple more unlockable camos...

But not for Cheiftain MK3 or MK5? Regardless I'm not going to be using it enough to get 500 kills anyway....if only that was 500 assists then maybe we'll be talking something do-able

See its a great camo for a great tank but I have only seen the Challenger 2 in this camo once or twice whereas it was often seen on the Chieftain.

 

Also, like I said before you have to pay GE to even get this camo again leaving Britain with camos locked behind pay-walls!

 

Maybe Gaijin can create a new forest type camo for the British tanks and then give the European Camo for free to all British vehicles, that way Britain gets a new forest camo and a free one at the same time

Oh nice man. Do you have any idea how crazy British Defence Twitter went over this camo?

 

Also did you get to have fun lugging the Easibridge around? That's been a really nice piece of kit for the infantry, I hope it gets adopted.
