They are auxillary fuel tanks on the the Soviet vehicles. German Armour never had external aux fuel tanks neither did the US. The British used Aux Fuel tanks on the Crusader series (at rear of tank) but then never used them in battle.
Simple reason is the external auxillary fuel tanks weren't armoured and you could split it with a spade, easy kill for infantry.
I would like to see more historical reticules for the tanks, maybe a challenge for the Merciless Crew;

i made it out when you thought you laid me out. :lol: :lol:
I read the update on the main website and all I got to say is....... wow......
woot a pilot class with parachutes, carrier elevators, towable guns...... FH YOU ROXOR!!!! FH is gonna be even better than dod eventually, I'm expecting even infantry combat to be better, good work guys and KEEP IT UP!!!!! once fh 0.6 comes out I'm gonna download it right away! WOOT WOOT WOOT
and yeah the tank sight thing is a great idea, in real life tankers aimed with perascopes and stuff, not through a crack in the front of their tank :-P and I don't know if xww2 online is totally realistic and stuff but I played it once and the tank sights zoom in and stuff, its sorta more like a sniper scope than the way it is in bf right now.
jmrwacko " FH is gonna be even better than dod eventually" Your kidding right? It blows it away NOW!
Im reading many posts about the new version but one thing is really dubios for me .......... would the devs added an zoom function for tanks ?
Or will they only change the crosshairs ?
I must tell u again ---> FH :rock:
actually DoD is bettter for intense infantrycombat, but i miss the vehicles:D
When will the french be included?
