I'd like to have Vietnam War era vehicles there's already some on PC and Blitz but I'd like to see some more on Blitz there's many to name but there's one I'd like to name the M551 Sheridan, I wanna see this light tank nuke stuff with its 152mm grenade launcher. There's also many other tanks to name but it would take to much time to do. There's also some in Armored Warfare and I'm ignoring comments saying "go play armored warfare" and I understand that if this were to happen there would be a crisis in player quality if the update happens and major balancing and testing to these vehicles before there added

 

M551

Quite the opposite actually. If anything your behaviour and others like you have really highlighted why WG needed to shut down general chat. The forums have endured your brand of nonsense before and prevailed. You will be gone soon enough.

 

Sure it will. I give it only a few more months of this and most of the original forumers will have blocked the so called trolls or they will have left. It will be easy to warn new players coming here of the clique mentality that is ever so present in this forum. Everyone giving each other pats on the backs for a job well done [edited]. That's what goes on here. general chat was full of immature people (myself included) and trolls, and spammers etc. This place is full of false hoods, back stabbing, junior high school like drama (of the female kind) etc. How many duplicate threads of [edited]being spread about like it was peanut butter on a sandwich. I can't believe people called this heaven. All it really is, is an extension of junior high. Oh yeah, let's not forget all of the sensitive individuals that call this place home... It makes me grin from ear to ear to see how easy it is to rustle jimmies here. All I have to do is drop the word Arty, or modern tanks, or team kills, and everyone goes nuts! Or even say that certain tanks are racist.. boom, there goes the neighborhood. So yeah, I think it is a matter of time before people leave or block. But the new players will be warned of what kind of environment is really facilitated here.

T54, centurion, m48 Patton. All three saw action in Vietnam and all three are in the game.

Anni is more overpowered than missiles were...will it get removed, too?

M55 Sheridan is in PC under the name "T49". It has the same turret with 152mm howitzer. 

 

The PT-76 would be a cool tier 6-7 light tank.

The topic about higher tiers has been discussed on Pc before, and they won't add higher tiers than X on Pc, eventually this applies to Blitz too. Altrough there is no need to add higher tiers since those aren't modern tanks, and their stadistics aren't better than current tier X tanks. They are probably adding Vietnam Era tanks sometime, but not as higher tiers.

M60 Patton wasn't really used in Vietnam all that much...the M48 was far more common

You know what they need to add? More BT Tanks.

With low-quality bait like "arty first", he's not even trying anymore.

In Vietnam (since I was there), there were M41s, M48A3s, and M551 Sheridans.  The other side had PT76s and T54/55s.  I never saw any Aussie Centurion Tanks since I wasn't down south.

 

I fire Sheridans in tank gunnery.  They were fast, about 50 MPH minimum.  Armor was light.  The MGM-51 Shillelagh guided anti-tank missile on Sheridans was incredible with dead on accuracy out to 3000 meters.  The 152 mm gun turned about tank relics like M102s or M48s at Fort Hood into a pile of scrap metal with 2 or 3 shots.  It was much more powerful than the 105mm on any M60 tank even with APDS rounds.  

 

I was also a tank company commander of two tank companies (one with M60s and the other with M60A3s).  The M60A3 was a quantum leap improvement in accuracy under any condition.

 

I don't expect the programmers or designers to do much to change this.  If the M551 Sheridan does happen, it will be a shoot and scoot tank for sure.  However, we'll see what WOT bozos come up with.
