Hello all!


This is the newest Iran MBT called the Tiam (I believe, it pops up when I type it in so I call it that) and it was first reveled very recently around a week, to 2 weeks ago (Again not sure). It seemed to be a Chinese Type 59 Turret with the M60's 105mm gun, and a modified M47 chassis. Not much is known about this tank, but I like the look of it. Russian, Cold War Era tanks turrets look so awesome.

I say the Devs should add this. It could be around the M60's Level (maybe a tiny bit lower or something).

Interesting, as I do like hybrid tanks. One would initially say that this is simply a variant of another tank, but with the complexity of all these tanks combined into one, this could be accepted into the game. Although, as this tank comprises parts from the Type 59 as well as the M47 and M60 Patton, the level would be around in the high 20s. The thing with the developers is that they are not as much of fans of hybrid tanks as many of us are, and I understand that. Some of these hybrid tanks can be quite weird, sometimes TOO weird to add into the game. Although it is isn't too weird, this one is definitely one of them.


I'd like to go back to my other proposal to solve the problem with the implementation of weird tanks into the game of Tanktastic. That is to simply make these peculiar machines reward vehicles, whether it'd be for WWII tournaments or clan competitions. This solves the dilemma of having rather weird tanks in the game, but not seeing them that common that they mess up the flow of matches either. Anyway, a weird tank should be rare to obtain and find anyway, as they are not just "any other tank".

That looks awesome. From the way it's designed it can be a low to mid lvl tank in game.

It's a mix between T-90MS and t-90 and type 59.

So basically Iran has been binging on the indigenous vehicle thing. They've created a whole line up of locally created AFVs. The Tiam shown above is one of them.

The vehicle to really look out for is the Karrar, which the Iranians claim to be at least as capable as the T-90, and have yet to unveil.

It's a mix between T-90MS and t-90 and type 59.

It's actually an M47M hull with a Type 59/69 turret mounting a 105mm. Disappointing, but like I said, the vehicle to wait for is the Karrar.
