      Lookls like the lovechild of an ELC AMX and an Alecto.

      According to Gamemodels3d it might actually be playable too, the 105 mm from the 105 AM with a 60 degrees gun traverse arch (+/- 30) with relatively short aim time.

      I think I'll buy it :P

      Uh... WG must have done something wrong: This thing have 1 gun, the upgraded gun from the 105 AM which is moved to t5 but keeps it's current stock gun too.

      Getting this vehicle will automatically unlock the top gun for the next tank in the line.

      EDIT: Remove the previous post.

      From what I can see it can't mount the top gun in the stock turret. the stock gun can't be mounted in the top turret either :insert confused face:

    1. If no center battles + narrow north and small southern route is good map with very high map divider in the center... Then maybe PR is good... But it is utter BS in terms of being decent. Arty has to first move 300m to get into somewhat position, tanks have very narrow places to attack everywhere and the routes are full of bottlenecks to disgrace freedom of movement... Only on the bottom where the river goes is room to move, but everyone knows what happens to tank in the open...

      They should widen the routes on north and make center city bigger and move the cap rings more to the sides of map instead of close to the damn mountain.

      It is utter bad representation and excuse of being good map only because it look nice.

    2. PR is "good" only because narrow passage at north which got many alternative routes so peek a boo game is very entertaining, something like this must be developed for a "ridge" at El Haluf.

    3. PR is worse than dragon ridge..actually dragon ridge was interesting map if played properly..PR is just utter fail.

  4. What I actually heard from community members is that this map is rather from civil war in China and represents area near Harbin in Manchuria.

    1. Well, google translate from the Korean WoT site says it's supposed to represent Korea... dunno

      Delete
    2. Maybe that's the key word. Korean WoT site says it's Korea, just to make korean playerbase happier, while it is actually China...

      Delete
    3. Well, since the map is named "Korea" I think...

    4. Architecture basically screams Northern Korea. Only if we're talking about Southernmost Manchuria (where Koreans were a majority well into the 1960's) would your statement make sense.

    5. "Only if we're talking about Southernmost Manchuria (where Koreans were a majority well into the 1960's" - Heh. Dream on, Choi. Dream on.

      Even in the 1930s, when Manchuria was occupied by the Japanese Empire, it was majority Han Chinese, and around 17% Manchu. There were less Koreans in Manchuria than Manchus themselves, even with the Japanese government actively settling Korean and Japanese farmers into the area.

  6. Just 1 Korean War Map!? The Korean War had some of the most intense combat since the end of WWII, The UN defence against the Chinese Spring Offensive is the stuff of legends along with many large scale tank battles with hundreds of tanks on both sides. There should at least be.... 2

    2. In Soviet Russia, Tundra is everywhere, even in the south.

    4. According to Wikipedia:
      "The term tundra comes through Russian тундра from the Kildin Sami word tūndâr "uplands", "treeless mountain tract"

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tundra

      Just for Info :3
