Wondering which questions you got correct or wrong? Here are the correct answers to the quiz.
1. Which of these tanks, according to the technical design documentation, was supposed to be able to cross a lunar landscape?
The requirements of the tank were driven by the T-28’s purpose, defined in the technical design documentation as assistance to infantry when overcoming heavily fortified enemy defenses. Of course, there were no highways and the tanks had to keep up with the attacking infantry. For this reason, designers tried to make the vehicle as effective as possible whilst off-road.
2. Name the tank in the picture below.
The picture is misleading in itself. The first impression is that it is the Panther. But the hull details (rivets on the armor, shape of lights and turret) and location (obviously, it is North Africa and the Panthers didn’t fight there) give away the M18 Hellcat.
3. Where was this picture taken?
This question required observation skills. In the background, behind the German Panther, you can see one of the most well-known monuments of medieval Gothic architecture—the Cologne Cathedral. It was built in 1237–1242 and was the tallest building in the world for four years: 157 meters is no joke even now. We can see the Cathedral today. It was rebuilt in the 19th century, but retained its majesty and beauty.
4. Which WWII front was this tank deployed to?
5. Name the tank in the picture below
Overcoming water obstacles is not always successful for the Renault FT-17. The nationality of the tank is revealed by the crewman’s uniform. And the exact modification can be determined by its running gear details. In the FT-17, when looking at one side, the running gear consisted of nine road wheels, six top rollers, idler wheel with screw track adjustment, and rear drive sprocket. Top rollers (except for the rear one) were sprung by screw coil springs. Suspension is fully articulated, with semi-elliptical springs covered by armored plates. Track links are large, with pin gearing.
6. Name the tank in the picture below
The tank was named after one of the best-known Confederate Generals in the American Civil War. Everyone who researched medium tanks in World of Tanks knows this vehicle. Due to its powerful, but inaccurate and awkwardly placed gun, as well as its large size and poor armor, the M3 Lee is one of the most recognizable tanks in the game. Soviet crewmen’s opinion of this tank was far from flattering. It was called the BM-6, a shorthand for "bratskaya mogila 6" which means “a grave for six” in Russian.
7. Name the German tank in the picture below
PzKpfw IV Ausf.F2
A reader interested in military history is sure to guess right at once that neither Tiger I nor Kolohousenka resemble the vehicle in the picture. To answer the question correctly, look at the tank’s running gear carefully. The most significant visual difference of the two modifications of the PzKpfw IV was the different number of top rollers: four rollers in the PzKpfw IV Ausf.F2 and three rollers in the PzKpfw IV Ausf.J.
8. On which island was this photo taken?
Those who have seen the branch of Japanese medium tanks at least once, immediately recognize their peculiar silhouette. And then logic comes into play: the background is obviously some northern landscape. There is no data about tank battles between the American and Japanese armies in the northern part of the Pacific front. But the Battle of Shumshu, one of the last battles of World War II, during which the island was invaded by the Soviet army, is well-known to fans of World War II history.
9. What WWII general was nicknamed Desert Fox?
The Fuhrer’s favorite and one of the most talented tank generals of the Wehrmacht was a real tactics genius, able to brilliantly get himself out of seemingly unwinnable situations. His combat operations against outnumbering British troops were so successful that General Auchinleck published an order containing such a phrase, “There is a real danger that Rommel will be deemed a warlock or a bogeyman by our soldiers.” After breaking out of encirclement near Cyrenaica with his troops, Rommel received his honorable nickname: Desert Fox.
10. Which country does the tank in this picture belong to?
11. Which button in World of Tanks activates a Random Battle?
12. Who is the person in this picture?
One of the World of Tanks creators, a favorite of those who complain about the disadvantages of vehicles from some nations and want to know about every update beforehand, and just a great person—Sergey Burkatovskiy, known as SerB. Since the game appeared, he is probably the most recognizable public personality of the project.
