Lets talk about the state of Germany

Every nation gets export vehicles itself. Challenger 2E, Australian Abrams, Palmeria,… etc. Also tech demonstrators and vehicles which aren’t adopted by the armed forces like the 2S38. Unfortnately its suddenly different for the german Lynx. Gajin does WT no favor with this weird tech spread to nations which have nothing to do with it. Man, what claim has Italy to the Lynx, the most recent IFV with Spike and Strike Shield? Everything is made in Germany, even the Eurospikes.

Dunno where it started… The canadian ADATs for Britain, despite it never operated or developed it? What was next? All these foreign swedish additions via subtree? The swiss Hunter for Germany? T-90 for GB? And how will this end?


How can it bee that the same addon armor elements are more effective on swedish Leopards than on the PSO?

So Britain, the most coddled nation that get given all the best vehicles and not prone to BR hikes due to certain nation players losing it every implementation, get a… another Challenger.

So USA get another… M1… shock.

So Russia… that 2S38 is a massive finger up to ALL nations. Not sure how that effects just Germany.

I dunno, all the “acquired” vehicles very early on. Many lights a mediums hiding in a US tree when really they should not, or at least be repeated in nations that actually used them? Then I notice a better Sea Hawk in someones tree. I also see top tier similarities in Air, though you will notice a lack of Mig-29s or F-16s in some nations. Of course German air for me ends at 9.3 since if I wanted to play Russia I’ll play Russia (I don’t). And already nearer Tornadoes in UK tree than Germany or Italy, and have no interest in those in this game’s setup/meta.

The situation I see here is muddled. Germany are essentially the least served (not at all times in WT) of the big 3. Mainly because the other two are the two main world powers of the time, US and Russia/USSR. But there are a lot more minor nations and they are served worse across the whole BR range, so making out the German tech tree is “hated” completely forgets the overall picture of all other nations that are not US or Russia.

I agree with some of the dissatisfaction as I want to be able to play all nations at all levels eventually but the supposed “Germany gets the worse deal always” is just divisive. Since I assume most of us are not Mains or with some personal hangup about other nations I hope there is a more level look at all these issues.

Could be worse, a third party might make a load of vehicles they are interested in and wipe out any chance of any homegrown vehicles added, and being generally worse vehicles than what could have been added. Imagine if this happened to other nations, removing a lot more than 3 vehicles and basically giving up on spending time/money of development.

Everytime I look above Tier 5/6 the game is just one big cluster f. Too much to balance, too many changing “rules” by Gaijin.

Almost EVERY nation suffers, I’d rather they all got looked after, Major nations last. Top tiers are now locked into the whole “information on tech” along with systems moving beyond true player interaction, and a dominance in tech and quantity by two of the largest nations in the game.

It is a lot more than two years. You mention the situation with the post-war vehicles but the problem is bigger than that. Even the wartime 1939-1945 vehicles are severely lacking. We never received our best or newest vehicles. It seems like the majority of the wartime German vehicles are deliberately and perpetually stuck at circa 1943 configurations or earlier. Since the release of this game, over 10 years ago, we have been stuck with:

Tell them to fix the bombloads too as many aircraft still have the 1800 & 2500 missing from their loadouts

Turns out that time where German tanks would catch fire randomly through MG fire wasn’t just an accident after all, if anyone ever believed that.

Working on that too take a look

Germany owns the KF 41s… The german Bundeswehr and government have to agree to the export of the vehicle… They just don`t use it.

If we go by this logic all vehicles labled Obj should be removed from the russian tree as russia never used them, just tested them. same for every other vehicle which never entered service but was tested/evaluated by the nation.

Becauise the german arms industry needs the approval of the german government for EVERY export of their product and the Bundeswehr has to test the vehicles to advice the government in their decisions of procurement and expoirt?

Like how it is in every single nation with an arms industry? Like russia, china, Turky, France, GB and so on?

The SBs would be so great to have in game as they have more explosive mass for the same weight. What is it like from 40% for SC to 60% for SB. But no not a single SB is in game.

Yes for example the SC-2500 have 1700 kg of Trialen 105 but the SB-2500 A1 have 2000kg of Trialen 105

Ok so more like 68% for sc and 80% for sb. I was way off.

Yes look at these

Spoiler





And take alook at these subjects you might be interested

I fully agree! I think Germany needs to get some of its vehicles or at least get add on upgrades to the existing ones! The PSO would be a joke if it did not bring a hull armour upgrade, which I hope they will resolve by adding it as a modification.

Iirc gaijin said germany will get a swiss sub tree, which i hope fixes most of the problems that the tree has atm, i only know about air rb since i main that but i really hope the swiss sub tree gets added asap

we don’t get PUMA spike this patch at least make PSO UFP armor better like Strv122 isn’t too much to ask right? three years of waiting for those German players let not disappoint them.

Gaijin nailed it that they wouldn’t give it to Germany in this patch, even Spike for PUMA.

They said the opposite and that the swiss hunter was a one off.
