I began to start thinking of ways to assist new players in identifying tanks. I am sure some others have encountered this situation in which you are constantly being asked "what tank is that?" This is an idea I came up with to help with that.

• Special thanks to penitrator who agreed to help with this idea.

Yes, I know they are not that great, but it's the general idea. The aviation would be the same way, as well as for your teammates. The aviation photos had to be taken during a private match and during the heat of a match so sorry if the jet photo looks a little bad.

On top of that, there could be an option to toggle the I.Ds. on and off in case you just don't want it on your screen.

They could probably put it between the tank icon and the username at the team list

Meaning a small icon like you find in the scoreboard, and put it on the radar?

I say make the text a little smaller and give the level it's at so newer players know not to fire at or around it to eliminate most of the reasons why new players are shot

Identifying the type of tank is one thing, but the tank level shouldn't be included because everyone will concentrate on attacking the weakest tank they can find. A level 66 Merkava is a royal pain in the neck to destroy, but one at level 62 is considerably less dangerous to a level 69 Abrams. If the driver doesn't know what level his opponent's tank is, other than that it's within whatever the particular room parameters might be, he has to treat every tank as though it's maxed. Let him figure out how to deal with it from there.

i just thought about it. i still like the idea, but what about the tanks with no numbers in their name and have a long letter name, like the panzers in the game?

Same general idea, the font would be the same regardless. Just look at the names for Russian pilots, some are incredibly long compared to the size of the unit itself.
If it would help out, I can always make a picture to demonstrate.

This is a good idea, lets just forget all what you guys said. And leave the tank's name for the people who doesn't know tanks, and stop asking Wichita is it
