A Simplier Question

Recommended Posts

Rarity expresses how common a particular

vehicle is in the army in any given month

during the war.

Older models of tanks become rarer,

as they are destroyed or replaced

by newer models...newer models are rare

at first, maybe only a few select battal-

ions get them...then become common.

Rarity acts a multiplier of unit point

cost: rare vehicles (not necessarily good

tanks,just rare)cost more points; common ones less.

Hope that's clear...

Yeah thanks but when you buy units where goes the rarity limit. eg 150+ rarity is it most unlikely that I could have found this unit IRL?

I'm not how sure the rarity values go? I think 150% is the highest I've ever seen. And yes, the higher the rarity value, the fewer units of that type present in that theater at that time.

Giant tank. How come I never heard of it?

I can't say for sure, but probably because it was another one those of those goofy German programs that never went anywhere or had any effect on the outcome of the war. The last time I heard the Maus mentioned was in a book of odd facts back in the 70's.

6kph offroad?, that's more WW1 to me. But the germans did still make the best tanks, except for the maus tank etc. :D

"Crew 7 (Commander, gunner, machine gunner, 2 loaders, driver, co-driver)" Never heard of co-driver in tanks doesn't it take up too much room, well of course there was room in the tank you're talking about.
