imo they just look way more interesting and the tank race between the axis and allies is pretty amazing. Look how far tank design developed in just five years.
We can't add modern tanks if we haven't finished all the tech trees or tanks yet. Shermans were a cheap and fast tank that could be made fast to get to the war.
@Tokugawa77 Not really, I mean the late german tanks were cool and the T-34's was cool and even the US Hellcat TD was pretty cool but that's about it. Shermans were terrible and the best British tank was the Centurion which entered service after the war had concluded.
Good looking game, too bad its not about modern tanks. Its hardly a 'world' of tanks if there are no T72's or M1's.
Doubt anyone will even read this, but that view from above the barrel in the winter scene, totally reminded me of Goldeneye when you have the rocket launcher :).
