Battle of Berlin Challenge

Sidi Bou Zid Challenge


This month's Challenge Tournament is one for the real heavy hitters. It's going to be a max tier, no point limit, steel crushing melee. As the title suggests, the inspiration for this tournament is linked to the Battle of Berlin, that commenced in April, 1945. The Battle of Berlin was the final major offensive before the end of the war. May the most cunning team take the top prize. Best of luck to you all.

Here's your chance to reenact a bit of history, and maybe even rewrite it. Either way, it's your opportunity to slug it out with a few other tankers for some serious gold!
