The year is 1947, the second world war has raged on for a very long time, battles won on both sides have extended it, the losses were great. To the point were the war petered out, and was rented out to mercenaries in tanks by 1945, although research on tanks and their weaponry has made giant leaps, the poorest mercenaries still fight in old inter-war tanks in small skirmishes, far from the huge modern tanks, on smaller fronts for small objectives.

Nations:
Axis:
Italian
Germany
Japan

Allied:
America
Britain
Russia
France
China

Tank Types:
Light (Small, quick, good at scouting and taking out lightly armed foes)
Medium (Somewhere between heavy and light, some more related to one side than the other)
Heavy (big, lumbering, tough, but slow and slow turning and turret speeds)
Tank Destroyer (The "snipers" of the tank world, mostly have no turret, and have thing side and back armor)

while these are rather broad terms, they are easier to adhere to, and don't expect every tank of every type to adhere strictly to these generalizations.

This game is in a what-if scenario, where WWII has turned into a slow tank v. tank war, rented out to mercenaries for money. You play one such merc, who is fairly poor and have bought a small tank from the 30's, doing small contracts to make money.

Sheet:

Name: please something of your nationality
Age:
Nationality:
Faction: Basically the nation you fight for
Description: what you look like, purely optional but preferred, just remember, big guys can't fit into tanks
Bio: 5 sentences at least, optional
Perk: from bio, i make
---------
Cash:200
Tank: i put
Crew: i put
Modules: anything extra added on
Equipment: basically anything inside the tank to help it (i.e. first aid kits, extinguishers, etc.)
---------
Gun: what gun is on the tank, i put
Engine: what engine is on the tank
Armor: in MM, the higher it is, the better chance of a bounce, or non penetrating shot
Hull: your "HP" i put
Condition: Fine

Now you will start with what is essentially a mid war tin can, and you pay to either upgrade it, or the tank itself. You take various missions and jobs for money, you will start doing small jobs, but can get up to larger ones, even spearheading major offensives.


Alright, the person who pre signed up, bring your sheet over here and i'll fill it out, kinda wish i got more people to show preemptive interest

Name: Hilda "Hilbert" Amsel
Age: 24
Nationality: German
Faction: Axis
Description: 5'4", Blonde, Blue eyes, Pale skin, Petite build, Boyish looks
Bio: Hilda never let the fact that she was a woman keep her from achieving her tank-piloting dream. Thanks to her boyish looks and total lack of breasts, it wasn't hard for her to disguise as a male in order to have an easier time getting to her goal. Her family never did have much money; she had to do odd jobs in order to get even enough money for a tank. Her nickname comes from the name she uses when she needs to disguise as a man. She always prefers heavy tanks, partially due to her love of big weapons and armor, partially due to a subconscious need to compensate for something.

Right now, since i have two people


1947, North Africa: It's a cold night in Tunisia, you are in your tank, on guard duty for the night. as you sit in the cupola, you notice something against the slowly rising sun on the horizon. Binoculars out, you see at least 20 Italian tanks on the horizon many Fiat 3000's and a few l 3/35 tankettes. they are in an arrowhead formation, heading straight for your camp, you look back as you see a few rows of T1's, and even a few M2 light tanks, ready for action.

a few pictures for reference:

you quickly hop out of your tank and rush over to the siren, cranking it you wake the entire camp , like ants they all scramble out quickly getting prepared for battle and getting in their tanks, you hear the rumble get closer as the Italian tanks near. You hear the blasts as their guns fire upon the mostly stationary tanks, you run back into your tank and quickly get out of the fire, a few tanks are set alight and disabled by the intense fire, most of them manage to scatter out of the Italian's ambush, but everyone is confused and not sure what to do.
You hear confused chatter and pleas for help over the radio, but can't make anything out.
