Hey tankers! Welcome to the start of a brand new series, "Historical Tank Battles!" In these series, I will be making regular videos that you can test historically accurate tanks against each other in appropriate locations for setting up inter-clan tournaments, or random teams of 7 players! To see how to enter a team, watch the video, and scroll to bottom of page for instructions.
A lot of time and effort went into the drafting of these armies to ensure accuracy, I suggest that you consider submitting a contest entry with a list of players and time slots available. You may choose any of the three army options (or if both teams agree, the fourth "poor mans army" (an army made of lower tier, but historically accurate tanks to the battle for ease of entry) and agree on a time slot. You may choose any equipment load-out and any consumables of your choice. You may load as much premium ammo as you like. Here are the team options for both armies. There is a lot of variation between the choices, choose carefully for one that fits your style well.
Special map rules:
Map: Himmelsdorf, closest thing to Berlin we have..,
Germans may not cap base, or they forfeit match, they were defending Berlin after all.
Draws go to Germans as this would historically symbolize the 9th Army having enough time to break rough the Russian defense and relieving Berlin.

To enter, Pick an army choice of either side, get your members together, and Post a commitall here. From there, I will add you to either the Germans or the Russians Waiting list, form which point I'll get the team organizers into contact for setting a time/date for the battle. If enough clans enter, we will turn this into a tournament. Please show this post/video to your clan mates or clan leaders to get this idea going. Have a great day, and as always, Blitz On!
