*ENDED* COMPETITION: Win Fury Blu-Ray, exclusive World Of Tanks Sherman M4A3E8 & family tickets to The Tank Museum! (2 winners)

World Of Tanks still shows how Free-To-Play games should be done. Fun and strategic, addictive yet boasting a completely fair economy that doesn't force you to spend anything at all, its deserved success has allowed Wargaming.net to expand into World Of Warplanes, World Of Warships and support worthy causes that restore and repair iconic war machines.

The Tank Museum in Bovington is one example, who opened a special exhibition last year to celebrate the launch of ‘Fury.’ Set in the closing days of WWII, this well-reviewed film cast Brad Pitt as a grizzled Staff Sergeant commanding a U.S. Sherman tank on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. This exhibition tells the story of the museum’s involvement with the making of movie, including restoring and renovating the genuine Sherman M4 and Tiger 131 tanks used in the action scenes! You can visit the armour-plated star, alongside numerous props, imagery and footage, until the end of 2015.

Wargaming also virtually recreated the Sherman M4 as a limited edition tank within World Of Tanks, which is now no longer available to acquire by any means. Until now!

Always the M4A4 Sherman because it's always been my favourite tank as it's boss in my opinion!

Has to be the Sherman!
Reminds me of my daughter,
It's small but has a hell of a punch to it...

scrounger700  Mar. 21, 2015 at 11:43

The Sherman! You knows it's the best!

The Centurion, remember seeing them on manauvers at bovington when I used to visit my Grandparents, especially as my Grandfather was an ex major in the REME. Happy days.

The Cromwell (A27M) tank - instrumental in the D-Day landings which inevitably helped the Allies to win World War II...

T 34 for me is the most balanced tank, firepower armour and manouvreability and simplicity

russellanam  Mar. 21, 2015 at 15:39

I think it has to be the M1A2 SEP to me partly because it is the most up to date tank but also because of the manually loaded 120mm main gun. I think I will rate it the best because of two special factors: 1. advanced armour with depleted uranium and reactive armour 2. Crew safety as ammunition stored under blow-off panels to prevent ammunition cook-off: probably the only tank in the world if I am not wrong.

T34

shafen  Mar. 21, 2015 at 16:00

I think it's the Soviet T-34 which was the best in the class when it was introduced and effectively deemed all German tanks obsolete during WW2 and forced them to introduce heavier Panther and Tiger I tanks. In a way it change the course of tank evolution during WW2.

Cruiser mark111 - light armour, fast and great manoeuvrability.

Little Willie - predecessor of the Mark 1 and father of all tanks.

For me it's the Churchill Crocodile flamethrower tank. One of Hobart's "funnies" it was a British tank adapted to deal with bunkers and fortifications during the D-Day landings. Despite this it was still effective in an anti tank role with it's main 75mm gun intact despite the addition of the flamethrower. The Churchill itself was an excellent tank, well armoured and capable of crossing terrain many others found difficult. Brilliant bit of British engineering made even better by another British team when Hobart and his staff got their hands on it.

For me being the best tank isn't all about armour or firepower but how useful the vehicle is to the military it serves. All of Hobart's modified vehicles made a massive difference during D-Day and the campaign in France, saving countless allied lives.
They might not be what you want to be driving when you meet a Tiger tank but I'd much rather have a crocodile in front of me than anything else when I'm looking at a mile of open beach and a wall of German bunkers ahead.

While the flame thrower as a weapon is horrific, it likely caused more surrenders than it took lives thanks to the psychological affect. There are reports of entire German bunkers giving up at the sight of a Crocodile approaching.

The crews themselves were hated by the enemy and there are accounts of them being shot if captured. It took a special kind of soldier to get into a metal box with a huge trailer of fuel attached, wield a horrific weapon and face certain death if captured or if the fuel lit up. Again for me this means only the bravest need apply to serve in the Crocodile. Best tank, both vehicle and crew.

The Challenger 2 has the latest Chobham armor and is one of the most protected MBTs in the world today. It offers very high level of protection against direct fire weapons.

Personally it has to be the Sherman Firefly. Iconic shape and just happens to be the tank my father drove in WW2.

jsebastion  Mar. 22, 2015 at 00:54

I believe that any tank crew member of any tank to be very brave, as to live and fight in any steel coffin cannot be easy. In the WWII, I believe the Tiger to be one of the best tanks, as the very knowledge that a tank an allied tank commander would be upto and face a Panzer VI would instil some form of trepidation.
Well done boys!
