Soviet TANKS Previews

It is time for the Soviet juggernaut to once again be unleashed on the TANKS world. Like the British, the Soviets benefited from the Lend Lease program and received Stuart and Lee tanks from the US, as well as Valentine and Churchill tanks from the UK. Of course they had plenty of their own designs including the fearsome KV, the bane of many a Panzer commander as well as an earlier version of the T-34 that was being manufactured in Stalingrad whilst the fighting drew ever closer. Check out these sneak peeks before they release in August and September.

TANKS FAQ

Over the past couple of months, we have been working a lot more closely with the community and one of the things that has been a high priority for us is to provide a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document. Today we are excited to present the Playtest version of the document.

Because the FAQ has been a long time coming we wanted to make sure that as many of your questions were covered off as possible. So rather than presenting the first version of the FAQ as a completed document we wanted to involve the community as we go through our own internal playtesting process.

In a few weeks once our process is complete, and we’ve had a chance to review your comments and questions we will issue the document as the first Official TANKS FAQ. Of course, in the meantime there is no reason you can’t use it as it stands now.

British Heavy Tanks Preview

British Tanks were broadly split into three different categories; Cruiser tanks like the Crusader tank, Lend Lease tanks like the Sherman and Grant, and Infantry (or Heavy) tanks like the Churchill and Valentine.

 

Since their role on the battlefield was to move at the pace of the infantry they were able to mount heavy armour and guns.

British Tanks Preview

British TANKS players get to benefit from not only their own designs with the Valentine and Churchill but also tanks received from their American allies in the form of the Sherman II and Priest (RHA). The Sherman II gives British players a cheaper alternative to the existing Sherman V.

This April will see the Italian Army join TANKS, bringing their own flavour as well as a dash of recklessness to the table top. With two new tanks; the M14/41 medium tank and the Semovente self-propelled assault gun players will be able to field a completely Italian force.

British Heavy TANKS Preview

Trucks, jeeps, and half-tracks had been scampering through the positions of the 17th/21st Lancers throughout the day, fleeing from the Germans coming through Kasserine Pass. Corporal Lorrigan flicked away a cigarette butt, then climbed aboard his Valentine tank. No more transports appeared as he settled into the turret, nudging the gunner, ‘Wakey, wakey lad. Rommel’s on his way.’ The flat crack of heavy cannon rounds passing nearby announced the arrival of the panzers on the next ridge. ‘Gunner, traverse left…steady…on! 1000, Tank…FIRE!’. The two-pounder slammed back, venting cordite into the cramped turret. The tracer arced into the panzer, then bounced, soaring into the evening sky, the range too long for their shot to have any effect against the bigger German tanks.  ‘Advance and engage’, crackled through the radio. Lorrigan started forward, advancing with ...
