It would be easier, but I'm liking listing some of the peculiarities of exactly WHERE some of them served.  Not to mention which tanks, even from tier 3, are still in active service.

 

Did you know the LTP was actually Peruvian?  I didn't.

 

And yeah... once I list as far as the Obj.140 (which won't show up on the list), or rather the IS-4 (which will), THEN you can fill in what I've missed.

 

type 62 definitely doesn’t exist in DPRK

According to wikipedia, a prototype of the T150 fought in Leningrad, and was destroyed.

 

That is a true story.

M103 was definitely a real tank.  They were the last attempt by the US to make a heavy tank.  The Army replaced them early on but the Marine Corps kept them around for a while longer to support its doctrine at the time, which required a heavy tank.  It never actually fought in Vietnam but it was still utilized at the time.

​Kuro and Anko are just re-skinned real tanks.  The Kuro is more realistic than the tech tree Tiger with the top gun.  The Tiger's turret couldn't handle the 88/L71 in the real world.  I almost dislike the over-gunning of real tanks more than the inclusion of fake tanks in the game. 

w t f are you talking about????.....this gun( 8.8 cm KwK 43 L/71) was standard equip on the tiger ll...and was always used for this tank..here is the info

OP was talking about the Tiger, not the Tiger II.  The Tiger I used the L/56.

Ay, where is the love for my baby STB-1? It's still in service with the JGSDF under the designation type-74, with a few modifications of course. Also to note, the STB-1 we have in game doesn't have the STB-1s turret, which is understandable, getting prototype info from japan isn't the easiest thing to do.

I wouldn't say I'm violent. I'd say I'm rather vicious personality wise. 

 

"SERB76 noted that you are an EFFECTIVE PLAYER" yeah I'll take that.

Btw for more information on the Maus, a total of three were "technically" used is combat, homever one was destroyed by artillery, one was captured, and one was abandoned and taken to some museum where it was lost.
