Using the engine of the game World of Tanks, the museum will hold virtual fights of famous tanks for the first time. Based on the technical characteristics and the history of the combat use of vehicles, experts will talk about the strengths and weaknesses of tanks in order to resolve disputes that have been simmering for many years as objectively as possible, for example, the T-34-85 or the Tiger: who is who? Also, viewers will see the painting of a real Jagdpanther tank destroyer in one of the in-game camouflages (June 26) and the battles of European streamers in World of Tanks (June 27).

June 28 at 17:00 (Moscow time) will be the traditional culmination of Tankfest - Arena Show: a large demonstration of existing historical armored vehicles from the museum's collection. The English parade will be commented on by Wargaming's Europe representative Richard Cutland and David Willie, curator of the Bovington Museum.

The Bovington Museum of Tanks is a military museum whose collection is one of the largest in the UK and has more than 300 units of tanks from 30 countries.

You can follow the broadcast of Tankfest 2020 on the official World of Tanks channels in YouTube и TwitchAs well as Online Bovington Museum.

    The main benefit of the tanks. Popularization of the history of armored vehicles. And the history of wars in general.

      I agree, but why are the German "Tiger" and "Panther-hunter" chosen as symbols in this computer screensaver?

          In this game, the best tanks are salt-water ones .. The existing ones are sucked .. Well, since the KV-2 is in normal hands .. bends and unbends)))

        German "Tiger" and "Hunter Panther"?

        Maybe this is the highlight of the museum.

    What the hell is the historical comparison in the game, tanks have hit points, where penetration does not destroy the tank and the crew, but simply removes a certain amount of HP, which is why the Tiger in the game (the so-called pumped-over) will win the T-34-85, he has more HP and a higher level, but the "premium" tiger with the T-34-85 is on the same level and the 34ka will win. This game has already led to the fact that in all seriousness articles about tanks "a la E50" appear on Wikipedia, which were not really there on paper. At the sight of the T-62, all VOT players declare the T62A, not realizing point-blank that this modification has never taken part anywhere in opposition to the still warring versions, they only have self-propelled guns or tank destroyers and do not care that they never have a "PT" were indicated.
    P.S. The game is cool, I myself play no no, but it is only a game! ! !

      that is why the tiger in the game (the so-called pumped) will defeat the T-34-85

      So he actually ran, a more powerful gun made it possible to hit tanks at a greater distance + optics of better quality made it possible to detect the enemy at a greater distance (at which he was already invulnerable to shells of d-5t and s-53 guns).

        In the game, battles are fought at such a distance that the Tiger cannon no longer has advantages in armor penetration. So it’s not physics that works here, but the perverse logic of the game.

          You have a perverted logic, putting the game, the GAME, in an absolute, and not even a war game, such games are carried out only in the headquarters of large formations, but an arcade. And to everyone - how much can you compare the heavy breakthrough tank "Tiger" and the medium support tank T34 ???? Do you have brains?

        In reality, the T-34 in Berlin .., so the question is who won is closed .. Where by the way are the German regiments of heavy tanks? Already in the winter of the 45th ..
        And how far have they reached under Ballaton? against the bloodless Soviet compounds ..

          Well, the fact is that for 1943 / near Kursk /, yes (!)... Indeed, the "Tiger" (technologically) was really better than the T-34, both in the detection range, and in the cannon, and in the armor (!)but it was quiet an order of magnitude smaller (!), which partly decided ...

          Well, at the first stage, we really had to take, simply by a quantitative advantage, and by the end of the war, firstly, the industry, which had gotten to its feet, also reduced the technological gap (and in some places it probably went ahead, with the advent of the T34-85, IS-2 , SU-122, ISU-152 .... etc.). And secondly, the German industry (by the end of the war), on the contrary, "sagged", and in adequate quantities to supply the front with neither high-tech "Tigers" and "Panthers", much less "Tiger-2" (over expensive !!), already I could not. Therefore, the numerical superiority increased, in a qualitative gap, practically disappeared (!).

          The reality of the T-34 in Berlin

          In Berlin, what was not there, the merits of T-34/85 only in their quantity.
          If you compare a tank with a tank, then you do not need to attract strategy, quantity, etc. here. it’s not the results of battles and wars that are compared here.
          One Tiger had an advantage over one T-34/85.

            Compare the heavy tanks of the Wehrmacht with the heavy tanks of the Red Army ..
            The workhorse is the panzer of the Wehrmacht parts Pts-4 of various modifications, an analogue of the Soviet T-34 medium tank .. various modifications.

              So here it is, but can we first find the reason for such a comparison and will not write nonsense?

      And here you are very mistaken ... You don’t have a flight of thought, there are no ideas about modern war and how it is being conducted, who should control everything on the battlefield ... You can see in a simple new, third law of development, everything moves in a spiral. ..

    Back in the early 2000s, there was a Quake game. At that time, beautiful graphics and crazy story. Now this is the same Quake with the same level of credibility and realism. I saw how youngsters play him - it’s not entered! Despite the fact that I had and can still have a direct relationship with tanks. If that. If about toys, the most realistic game that I came across is the T-72 Balkans on fire. Tough and true. Although not quite dopillennaya.Tak now they do not ...

    I have been a reader of VO since 12 years old. Previously, it was kind of soulful. I remember a post about landing on an Avik Kuznetsov. There was an excursion to Severomorsk 3. An opportunity was given to land on the Kuznetsov, of course, on a simulator .. Only the granddaughter of the honored flyer landed successfully. I wrote a report myself. And so the Belarusians with their World of Tanks are great. At least they teach a little history. Not one battle on this resource.

      The game is dominated by non-existent tanks (draft designs) with hyper weapons and armor. What kind of realism can we talk about? Comparing a heavy Tiger and an average T-34 in equal conditions on a one-to-one basis is unrealistic. The war confirmed this. In fact there are no equal conditions. Crews, communications and the number of cars decide.

    Physics is not used in the WoT engine, the tank is defeated by points (XP), points are deducted for the type of tank + ammunition used. But in WT (War Thunder) from Gaijin, the physics of penetrating armor is used more or less realistically, the "X-ray" of penetration is implemented and the tank can be disabled by a single hit in a weak spot in the armor when choosing the right ammunition.
    Although the developers are sometimes cunning and give more penetration to certain ammunition or give some weapons better ballistics based on their preferences or for the sake of balance. So it was at one time with the premium "Bolts" in aviation, whose Browning saws everything in a row from long distances.
    So to compare the capabilities of combat vehicles in a computer game, and even an arcade game, is stupid

    in order to resolve disputes that have been boiling for many years as objectively as possible, for example, “T-34-85 or Tiger: who is who?”

    Adjusted for FBG, this issue cannot be resolved by definition.
    FBG is when you hit a firefly with a 150-mm bomb, and in response, a joyful: "Ricochet"!
