Strange how these things can happen, take a wrong turning on a family cycle to some village I have never heard of, and bump square into a tank I've never heard of. 

 

Being obviously an expert in all things tank-like I quickly deduced that it was probably an M4 variant. Just encyclopaedic my knowledge you see.

 

Turns out it is actually a Grizzly Mk.I Cruiser, a Canadian medium tank built in the M4 hull to replace the Ram. Never saw action, and manufacture was discontinued when US production was obviously going to be sufficient. The hulls went on to be used in Sexton MkII Self Propelled Artillery that did see action with distinction in the war. 

 

How could WG refuse to use a tank called the Grizzly? Should be in game, in my most humble opinion. Anyway that has been my tank-related experience of the day, here is a pic of the Nottingham Sherwood Rangers tank, Robin Hood, once a practice tank and now a monument to the 268 members of the unit that fell in the war.

Well one day they might introduce it as well as a tier 4 weak premium tonk for the only price of 20 bucks!

Copy-paste tanks are a thing already, so we could easily expect that.

Well, I get what you mean.

But at the same time, this was a real tank, that was built and would have fired shots in anger but for circumstances. If it really wasn't different than an M4, then perhaps it could be a legendary camo for the Sherman Mk. V, or whichever is actually still available.

More choice, more historical depth, no real effect on balance. Sounds good to me.

Plus it's called Grizzly, how is that not awesome enough just by itself?

A Grizzly, that would be perfect given my now lockdown look...
