I flunked all the Japanese tanks and need to brush up on my late war Russian hardware. Missed two Brit tanks and the Big Frog as well.


I was tempted to google some of my my guesses first but decided to play clean.

That was my issue with all but the Japanese tanks which I've never had a clue about with their silly names: "Chi-Chi", "Ha-Choo", "Go-
Poo", etc...  ::)

I got 9 - it was the Jap tanks that let me down as well. Plus one that I knew was wrong as I clicked - doh!

12 out of 15  Missed one of the Japanese and two of the Soviet tanks.  Had to look up what a T-43 was.

I did alright with the Japanese tanks.  It was the variant numbers of the Brit tanks that did me in.
