Hello everyone, think bad MM balance and leaving KV-1S OP is a sign of Russian bias in World of Tanks? Let me show you some real Russian bias. Some of you, who read the historical articles and follow such stuff might are familiar with the name of Yuri Pasholok. He’s the main historical researcher for Wargaming (after you read what he wrote, you will probably be able to imagine where this is going). He recently wrote a post about Tiger II (resp. its prototype, VK4503(H)). The post it titled “Engineer Hans really didn’t want to go fight on the eastern front” – yep, implying German tank designers were cowards is a good start for every post by a Soviet Russian historian. It gets better though. Here’s the translation. I studied the Tiger II and VK4503(H) documents, thought about it a lot. The 105mm gun on KT can be explained simply – split ammunition. It’s possible the German lovers will suffer when they hear this. And in general, the German engineers, those were jokers. The VK4503(H) suspension that had on each bogey two DOUBLED roadwheels with rubber banding – that’s some sort of tank porn. 19.10.1942, the German genius was as gloomy as never before. And yes, studying German documents makes me proud about our tank engineering. I have a feeling that first grade university students were creating tanks in Germany, they were far behind our design school. Well, and technical approach of German engineers sometimes just delivers. And this guy is responsible for WoT historical research…
