Girls Und Thunder

Was in a GuP mood, so I decided to install the following:

That anglerfish is as good as an extra 50mm of armor plate, evidently. Immediately took it out for a spin and had an absolutely monstrous round, 8 kills, 2 assists, no losses. Took a bit of damage but nothing that kept me from scooting back and fixing it up. At least one T-34 and two SU-122s in that score total! (Pretty sure the SU-122s took some pretty severe damage from my initial shot, a shell from one of those would open up a Panzer IVF like a ration tin.)

Unfortunately other people can't see your custom skin. Fortunately you can't see theirs, though...

The game's been doing a Christmas/New Year's bonus. Normally every day the first win you get from each nation gives you a double bonus... but during the event, it's a 5x bonus. ("Win" so you probably have a good score instead of a multiplier on a crappy score...) At any rate, I've been unlocking stuff like mad.

-US tanks: M2, M3 Stuart, M3A1 Stuart, M3 Lee, M4A1 Sherman, M5A1 Stuart
-US planes: P36, P38G, P400, P40E-1, F4F, F6F-3, F4U-1a, SBD Dauntless, A-20
-German tanks: Whoa nelly.  Pz 38(t) A and F. Pz III E, F, J, J1, L, M. Pz IV C, E, F1, F2. StuG III A, F. Marder III. Couple of AA guns.
-Russkie tanks: BT-7. T-28, T-50, T-34 ('40, '41, and '42). KV1-L11. SU-76M and SU-122.
-British planes: Hurricane Mk I, IIB. Spitfire Mk1a. Blenheim.
-Japanese planes: A6M2-N, A6M2. Ki-43-I. Ki-61 (both).

Been playing tanks on the teams with tanks, but I've unlocked everything I can on the US tanks so far (more advanced tanks are locked unless you are in the "beta test", on the live server, which they're charging for. No thanks, I don't want to pay to beta test...) Had some serious luck with the US planes lately, either the .50s are doing better or I'm better with them...

1 You're probably doing better with them.  Other than the P-400, I've been struggling with US planes recently.  I'll get a kill, then get one-hit killed myself a few moments later.  Frustrating.

I only unlocked a couple of planes in the 5x thingy, but I've nearly "spaded" all of them.  A6M2 mod 11, Ki-43 (whee!), Ki-45 (boom!), Corsair and the P-400.  Even got about halfway through the tech tree for the TBF Avenger... mostly from one mission where I spent a good two minutes flying without a tail, but that's beside the point.

2 Yeah, the cannon armament is just beastly - any time I'm in something with a cannon, I'm much more likely to get those quick kills. (Though I had a great round in a Hurricane too...)

3 I just played my first GF game, in a US reserve tank.

The only kill I got was when I shot down a Dauntless.  Ironically, it was an air-to-air kill.

4 The M2A4 is a piece o' junk... only thing it's good at is fast. Maybe try the PzII C reserve tank for Germany? That 10-shot clip is pretty forgiving, even if it ain't all that much for penetration.
