I dedicate this song to my old friend, the Aufklärungspanzer Panther

 


 

An empty garage
An empty slot
A hole inside my heart
I'm all alone
The rooms are getting smaller
I wonder how
I wonder why
I wonder where they are
The days we had
The rams we had together
Oh yeah

 

And all my love
We're holding on forever
Reaching for the love that seems so far

So I say a little prayer
Hope my dreams will take me there
Where the skies are blue
To see you once again my love
Over seas from (south) coast to (serene) coast
Find the tank I love the most
Where the fields are green
To see you once again, my love

 

I tried to ram
I play the game
I'm laughing with my friends
But I can't stop
To keep myself from thinking
Oh no


I wonder how
I wonder why
I wonder where you are
The kills we had
The damage we farmed together
Oh yeah
And all my love
We're holding on forever
Reaching for the love that seems so far

So I say a little prayer
Hope Wargaming will place you there
In the German tree
To see you once again, my love
Over seas from coast to coast
Find the tank I love the most
Where the fields are green
To see you once again

To engage in damage farm
To promise you my love
To tell you from my heart
You're my favourite tank of all.


And waiting for the patch that seems so far!

 

(So) So I say a little prayer
Hope Wargaming will place you there,
Where you  belong
To see you once again, my love
In the German light tank line.
Why they removed you? You were fine!
Perhaps pay some gold.
To see you once again, my love
See you in a prayer
(My sweet) Dreams will take me there
Where the rams are great!
To see you once again
Over seas from coast to coast
Find the tank I love the most
I will pay some gold.
To see you once again, my love.

 


 

  My dear friend, on this exact day 2 years ago, you left me, not by your choice or mine, but by Wargaming’s. I dedicate this post to you my friend, who shared so many memories with me; memories of kamikazes, memories of damage farming, memories which I cherish and look back upon in fondness.

 

  I dedicate this post to the people who, like me, enjoyed your company; people who saw past your faults and embraced you as tank worthy of a garage slot, people who took the time to learn how to play to your strengths.

 

  You were a good tank, despite what people claim. They could not see your strengths and chose to complain. They ridiculed your tiny turret and big hull. They called for you to be removed or replaced. They succeeded. But let it be known that despite all this, there were people who enjoyed your unique looks and playstyle, people who will forever hold you in their hearts. You are not forgotten, you are remembered fondly.

 

  Rest in peace my dear friend. Removed by Wargaming and replaced by the SP 1C in patch 9.9 16th July 2015. May you one day rise by Wargaming’s hand and be returned to your rightful place in the German tech tree as the unique tank you always was. But until then, rest in peace.

 

 

 

 

PS: Flying_Elite has very nicely prepared a video that he will probably post later.

Well actually Chi-ri did exist in real life though. So I don't think it will going to happen....

Chi-Ri really need its 88 mm gun as documented, and give it an autoloader. 
It's slow, no armor, ok gun dep, autoloader with low alpha per shot, i feel sad for Chi-Ri drivers as much as i mourn stock Emil drivers that they both let me eat them as free slow-moving bag of xp and credits.

My own Chi Ri might want to have a word with you about that. Contrary to popular belief, it isn't that slow, the gun depression is acceptable and that "low damage autoloader" is 390 alpha split into 3 shots with an 8 second clip reload.

 

I thoroughly enjoyed and still continue to enjoy my Chi Ri to the point of 3 marking it.

2 Years on and the Pain is still there.

Here's hoping that the WOT Science Lab don't Re-Animate him as an ANIME mutant.

Let him RIP.

Everyone learned how to counter Churchill based turrets, now it wasn't funny anymore. Thats why i sold my BP many weeks ago.

Isn't the way to counter Churchill based turrets just to shoot through it's flat weak turret face?

T-50-2 was removed due to balance issues I remember?

I know the Aufkl was removed due to it being unpopular, like the Lorr 40t, which is doubly sad.

Indeed, but again, people used to shoot on our angled hulls thinking it was yet another thin armored meds many months ago.

 

Boy did they regret that decision many minutes after i poked 10 holes in em.

Now that people learned where to shoot at our weakspots it wasnt funny anymore.
