Here is comes, all the German mains rushing to defend their overly supplied nation with NOW, NOW tanks that have absolutely NO reason to be there. Oh, Austria is a neighbor to Germany? Aye, Canada is a neighbor to the U.S., so I guess it has the rights to the CA21 MEXAS, yea? You know what, let's take a deep breath. I said we can't argue the facts and so thus, lets look at them.
– "Austrian designed and produced. France had nothing to do with it."
Okay, so Britain had nothing to do with the development of the Olifant tanks? So South Africa is in the British tech tree for….?
"… The layout of the Olifant mk1 was very similar to that of the South African Semel tank which was based on an upgraded conversion of the British Centurion tanks."
My point in that is that actually, yes, the French did indeed have an influence over the development of the SK-105 because the tank was designed under existing designs of the AMX-13.
" Engineers turned to nearby France that already mass-produced the AMX-13 with an oscillating turret that precisely allowed to design an heavily-armed lightweight turret. As a consequence, when the SK-105 was produced and put in service it was the only other European tank featuring this concept."
Not only that, but it utilizes a French gun.
It was designed under the influence of French tanks, utilizes a French gun, you LITERALLY cannot get any more French than that WITHOUT actively being produced and manufactured in France.
If the AMX-13 was never produced nor developed, we wouldn't have this argument because the SK-105 wouldn't have utilized those blueprints.
-"France is getting 2 new vehicles this update."
Germany fields, before the new update, 72 ground vehicles not including premiums or reward tanks, and 110 including prems and reward tanks.
France fields, as well before the new update, 49 tanks not including prems or rewards, and still only 61 including prems and rewards.
Holy heckin' dude, who would have the audacity to point this out when France doesn't even have as many tech tree AND premiums as Germany does tech tree, with NINE tanks left to spare.
France could get a single tank for the next 9 updates and Germany none, and STILL technically not have enough to compete.
– "Not France. France? No. Not French, so no."
I'm at a loss. I've slowly lost my anger which has turned into confusion, both from a large slab of the individuals on this sub, and the developers of this game. From concept tanks, to neighboring nations, and all the way to, "it was a joint operation." I could sit here all day and list the number of tanks which are debatable to be listed in the nation they are in. Like how Germany is the way to go if you want to play the M48 Patton because technically you can acquire it at an earlier BR than the nation that actually build it. (Wild.) We stand at the border of "Do they really deserve this?" time and time again. Yet when a nation acquires a tank they have absolutely no reason to field people are suddenly so quick to defend this decision. I can't conceive the thought process some people have.
That's all I have to say.
