Some tanks allready have track add on armor in game and i am suggesting it for more vehicles.
Historically many crews added tracks and other spare parts on the front of the vehicle to get more protection, how much it helped in reality is debatable, if at least it gave a moral boost.
In game it would offer some limited protection (these can be shot off) at the cost of a bit more weight and can save you from a shot or 2 especially badly aimed ones. Furthermore such tracks give the vehicle a more used, fight approved and unique look. Here are some possible looks, tho in game they arent all fixed to historic placements and more can be applied to furhter increase the effect over different survaces.
The Tiger I in the Italian Premium Tree allready gets such armor and for Germany such would be nice too. And perhaps even turret track armor.
No way of knowing what difference it makes especially in the 7BR up tier. As for looks they used to mean a lot when but by 6-7 most WT players have given up on WW2 immersion, it has been driven from them or they quit.
By 6 BR big heavy tanks are becoming redundant and no fun to play, who wants them to be even slower and more pointless?
The game does not have to be this way but it is.
As a so called German main and major Tiger lover I really don’t care sorry.
Only thing I would say is that we have gaps in some tech trees. We can buy backups but I would be interested in gap filling premiums that had different external appearance especially in my beloved German WW2 line up at 2 -4 BR.
Its silly, its point less but I would probably spend money on it. Like the Jadgpanther premium ,it has Zimmerit but that be just enough for somebody to purchase it.
Make a premium Panzer IV G with side skirts, somebody will probably buy it for their collection. Make some cheap, visually different gap fillers and people will spend GE to buy them.
You can have a nice full line up of 3.7 tanks or 6.0 BR whatever, even if its all copy paste instead of gaps or a mix of BR . Let people mix and match before purchase to create something personal to them. Have a big selection of Decal, Side skirts, Logs, Tracks etc. let people recreate Granddads tank or the tank they served in Iraq or whatever.
Make relatively cheap but make money, let people personalize and have a full lone up at a certain BR.
Sorry to sound negative initially but my immersion dream was long since crushed :)
I’m a bit mixed on this one:
Yes, it is historically accurate, which i support all historical accuracy in the game
But it just makes it harder to kill the tiger I, which is one of the few heavy tanks which like to absolutely f*** up my day
But +1 for historical accuracy, just we need it at a high BR if this is added
