Tier 6 tournament team(s) now forming!!! [link]
FYI: You don't have to go in order for the personal missions second tank, other than the 15th of each class. So you could do Medium 7 before doing Medium 1 even.
Want to earn up to 5,000 XP, 5,000 crew XP, and 40,000 credits per battle??? Check out the post in our general forums area.

Rules

Skirmishes now have three days of group play (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) followed by a playoff (Friday-Sunday). Teams can choose to play only in the weekend playoff or participate in group play for better seeding and greater prizing.

After completing group play, a standings table will sort all teams across all groups based on points earned against points possible. Prizes are awarded at completion of group play to teams finishing in the top half of the standings. These teams qualify for the Alpha Playoff. All remaining teams qualify for the Bravo Playoff.

Alpha Playoff: This playoff consists of the top 50% of group play teams who will play for a larger prize pool. Group play performance will determine playoff seeding.

Bravo Playoff: This playoff consists of all remaining teams and includes teams registering solely for the weekend. These teams will compete for a smaller prize pool and the playoff brackets are not seeded.

Both the Alpha & Bravo Playoffs will use multiple brackets holding a maximum of 16 teams. This means multiple winners are awarded prizing for their standing in their respective bracket.

10 Bizarre War Machines, Prototypes and Designs of WWII

(8) Landkreuzer P. 1000 Ratte, Experimantal Super Tank Design (1942 to 1943):

German weapon manufacturing company Friedrich Krupp AG designed this super heavy tank in 1942 upon approval of Adolf Hitler. But German Minister of Armaments and War Production, Albert Speer cancelled the project in 1943 before any units were constructed. At 1000 metric tons, if built, it would have been 5 times heavier than the heaviest tank ever built, Panzer VIII Maus.

It was designed to be armed with naval artillery with 25 cm (10in) hardened stell armor. To compensate for the Ratteā€™s immense weight, it would have been fitted with three 1.2 m (3ft 11in) wide caterpillar track or treads on each side with a total 7.2m (24ft) tread width. Main weapon of the Super Tank would have been two 280 mm SK C/24 Naval guns. A 128 mm anti tank gun, eight 20 mm Flak 38 anti aircraft guns and two 15mm MG151 auto-cannons were also part of the armaments of the Ratte. Two 6,300 KW (8,400 hp) marine diesel engines of U-boats or eight 1,500KW (2,000hp) E-boat engines were supposed to be fitted with the super tank. It was supposed to carry up to 41 crews and attain maximum speed of 40kmph (25mph).
