Pz.III N Pz.III N - The best tank of the III series, this vehicle not only has a better speed than T-34’s it also features a nice 75mm gun with powerful HEAT ammo! Though the Pz.III N has a short barreled gun it is still a great choice for short distance battles - good reload rate and a fast rotating turret make this tank a very dangerous opponent. ZUT-37 ZUT-37 - an Sh-37 autocannon mounted on the chassis of the T-70 makes a nimble and stealthy AA-tank. Only two crew members and a slow rotating turret are the disadvantages, but they …

General: Boise woman is one of nation’s first female tank crew members

A member of the Idaho Army National Guard last week became the nation’s first female enlisted soldier to graduate from the U.S. Army’s M1 Armor Crewman School. Sgt. 1st Class Erin Smith joined the Guard as a combat medic in 2001 and has served overseas tours in Bosnia in 2002 and in Iraq in 2004. Most recently, she took advantage of a loosening of regulations that previously prohibited women from serving in combat roles. An M1 armor crewman is responsible for operating armored equipment such as the M1A1 and M1A2 Abrams tanks. Last December, Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced the the U.S. military would open all positions to women, without exception. “I was interested in the idea of being an Army tanker long before talk about integration so when the opportunity came up I decided to go for it,” Smith said in a written release. “It was intimidating at first — the fear of failure or not being good enough — but it’s been an awesome experience.” Full Article

Armored Warfare: DEVELOPER DIGEST - PT.6

Welcome to the sixth issue of the Developer Digest series. In this issue, we answer some of the questions about the Loot system and more! Are there any plans to change Daily Challenges?
We've made some changes to Daily Challenges in 0.16, which will make it easier to complete certain challenges and will allow players to earn the initial 150k credits (similar to what you would get for completing all three difficulty modes in the old system) by completing any of the three challenges listed. Since you now get supply crates for completing the other challenges, you can also earn more credits on top of the 150k plus additional credit/rep boosts and insignias. Overall, the new version of Daily Challenges tied to the loot system give plenty of opportunities for players to play in a way that suits them and still earn better rewards. Asking players for a small amount of additional effort in exchange for way more rewards is a good deal in my eyes. Here are the changes just so everyone has a refr…
