I've heard Japanese tanks have good guns? It's the only nation I've never played yet.

Either good or great guns, crappy armor and a decent firing platform. Tier 4 has some armor but after that there's nothing until tier 10. Tier 5 is good, good gun depression and a great gun. Tier 6  is the same but the turret has some armor on it and the mantlet in impenetrable. Tier 7 is a glass canon but it has the damage potential of a IS with a 10 second reload with it's 3 shot auto loader. Tier 8 is a lighter Pershing with a better gun. Tier 9 is a lighter Patton with a better gun and tier 10 is the love child between a M60 and a T-62A. Good gun depression, good gun, good turret armor and good RoF, a solid tier 10. 

Favorite tanks: E-75, Cromwell, Nashorn, KV-2, SU-152 and the Shinob

Lines currently grinding: AMX 50B, Obj. 268, E50, T110E5, & JagdPanzer E-00

Completed lines: STB-1, E-100

Hmmm yeah, still don't fancy it yet. Maybe once I go bit higher with British mediums and get a few tier X tanks.

Personally, I am not a fan of the Japanese tanks, but i never went further than tier 4 I believe. They seem to be good in mobility(somewhat) and firepower(quite a bit) but lack armor. Did I miss anything? 

Check out my state if you want... or Dont't, it's fine either way....

Hey guys, sorry I haven't been on much, I was dealing with a sick family member.  They ended up passing away last night, next week is the funeral, so I might not be on at all.  I just wanted to let you guys know.  Our spring break starts the 7th so I should be back into WOTB at full speed after that.  Everyone take care, and tank on!

​How good can they really be?  I watched the Saturday morning monster movies when I was a kid.  Godzilla always totally owned the Japanese tanks.

Ox, praying and thinking of you and yours s well. I hope all goes as well as can be. As Bushi said, death is always difficult, unless it comes as and end to the dying person's suffering, which can then (hopefully) be a blessing. Take care bud - see you when your back.

We have been secretly trying to take over WOTB, soon you will be driving a potato.  This was the first step in our overthrow.

I am totally down with this. Instead of fezzes, fezi - what is the plural of fez? Anyway, we could wear green derbies. I walk in our local St Pat's parade. We throw candy and hand out potatoes. The potatoes gain in popularity every year.
I like turtles
