Hello all, WG you guys did a great job on the camo for the German Tiger II tank, kudos!  As per the live stream introducing 6.9 update showing off the new camos (the Japanese TD and the Tiger II) I must say someone or a group are earning their pay.. :) But one thing on the camo for the Tiger II which is supposed to be historical, I have never seen a large Iron Cross on the very middle front armor on the Tiger 2 and it makes it look fake. Just saying.. Luck on the battlefield (You'll really need it nowadays).                                               Remember: 

                                                                        "Keep your powder dry, your gun locked and loaded, aim true" Always..

 

If I'm wrong then please let me know.

You're right. The frontal iron cross is peculiar. It is something the Americans would do with their stars. Germans would usually just place a number and cross on the turret and call it a day. 

 

It still looks fantastic, however. Definitely a breathe of fresh air after so many video game, fantasy camos have been released as of late.

WG has refused to mount the Iron Cross on any of their camos, and even yanked the Lowe’s camo temporarily when it came out because it had a historical icon on the back. This is a welcome change.

Yes. That was a ridiculous ignorant policy. If they finally realized that it has aesthetic value and and isn’t political at all and start using it, then that will be the one promising positive thing amidst all of the trash changes they’ve been making.

Yeah, this is a pretty camo, and an example of *smart* marketing by WG. Improve a tank, see its playrate jump, and make a nice camo to capitalize. Need to do more of this rather than dopey offers or chests.

In what way is the iron cross political?  It's not a Swastika or anything.

This is correct buddy, since I live in Germany at the present and being stationed here multiple times with the U.S. Army I have seem many a German (NATO member) tank in the field that have on them the Iron Cross with is the symbol of the German modern military... The Iron Cross has been around since the 19th century and it has nothing to do with politics. It is an honor that was given during the might Prussian era to the military and to civilians that have done military jobs or actions.

Exactly. It isn’t political at all. They were just too afraid to offend people before, even though the few people who might get offended by the balkenkreuz (iron cross) would have more toes than brain cells, no education, and feelings softer than down feathers. And most importantly, just because you are offended, it doesn’t mean you are right.That’s what many people do not understand. I guess WG finally realized that and decided to add to the game with cool camos for everyone else which is fantastic. Let’s hope the trend continues. If the leaked photos are real that is, which I really hope they are.

It's about time WG put the German Cross on their tanks!  I hope they offer a similar Camo for the tiger I, and other German tanks!  Also, the Japanese line of tanks too.

Yes. I think most people are really glad they came around on the idea. It was a ridiculous policy before.
