Probably those who drove Scorpions who are still in the Army. 

 

(To be honest, Scorpion is a armored recon vehicle, not a tank.) :hiding:

Yes, dapat same email add sa ginagamit mo for the game as usual sa mga WG events. I dunno kung may QR code bang involved this time, better yet ask the admins.

can you imagine serving US personnel going along to chat about a tank game?   don't you think it's a bit weird?  US tank personnel are actually fighting REAL battles sometimes not talking about a game I just think it's inappropriate but I guess Philippines tank crews don't do much real fighting   lol

Sad to say that's the truth, not to mention what our armed forces use commonly in Mindanao are "APCs" and not realy "Tanks". I think there's a fine line between the two, though generally we can regard them as tanks.

I think you misunderstood what the event is about. To quote the portal:

 

Block Quote

For all of us tank fans, here's our chance to meet real people who have served on real tanks. Some members of the Philippine Army with experience using tanks have been invited to talk about what they know.

 

They'll be talking about real-life experiences, not the game.

Precisely, they drive or operate real armored vehicles while we just press WASD, click and operate vehicles with no visible crews (those driving open-topped vehicles know what I mean). That's what's this event is about, to learn more about their experiences, whether while fighting rebels or while they're resting/doing maintenance or just whatever mundane stuff that's happening while they're with their vehicles.

We'd better ask them if there are plans to buy MBT's or what they think of MBT's in Philippine setting.

And I'm sure that there will be historical consultants present

Anyways, may pagkain?

i think you may be taking this a little too seriously we are just playing a pixel tank game but if you feel the need go and enjoy it   :)   beats fighting in real battles   :)

RSVP list updated.

 

Also, some players (indicated in the RSVP list) didn't provide their full name. They can provide me with their full name via forum messaging.

 

This event was the reason why I created the [PH] Life with tanks thread a few weeks ago, actually. Unfortunately, there won't be any historical consultants present. Perhaps for another event.

 

As for food, there will be snacks since it will be in the afternoon. Just to set expectations.
