The Battle of Stalingrad began in the summer of 1942: both German and Soviet command considered the city to be of critical importance. In autumn the Red Army during Operation Uranus successfully encircled the Wehrmacht forces near Stalingrad. Axis powers failed in their attempt to break through, and on February 2nd, 1943 field marshal Paulus went against Hitler’s orders and surrendered. This victory became one of the most important events of WWII.

From February 2nd (10:00 GMT) until February 6th (07:00 GMT)

Play 3 battles using Soviet vehicles (rank III or higher, with an activity of not less than 70%) to receive the “Vehicles of Victory: T-60” decal. You can also earn the “Ampulomet” decoration for ground vehicles by winning 5 battles using Soviet ground vehicles.

I guess I should probably express my more complete thoughts about the "correct way" (My opinion...) on researching the US Tree-

Provided you've already researched everything through Rank 4, your best lineups are going to be 8.0 and 9.3 (RB)
If you plan on stopping to enjoy 8.0 -- You want the M60A1 AOS, the Bradley IFV, T95E1, and the M163, probably in that order (I never bothered to research the T95E1, so I can't really comment on how good or bad it is. I feel like I don't see a ton of them, but when I do... they seem to do OK.). Additional bonus for the M901 Wall-E (Nice thermals, if you can hide the tank behind cover and only expose launcher), and the T54E1 premium is pretty slick, too. Other 8.0's (M551, M60A2) can be useful, but I do not feel they are as good as the first 4 vehicles I have listed.

Or plan on stopping at 9.3 -- MBT-70, XM803, M3A3 Bradley, M247, and M60A3 TTS. Additionally, XM-1 premium can be nice.

IMO, most of the M46/M47/M48/M60 (Early..) tanks are best used in the "assistive" role.

Their mobility (for what they are..) I suppose is OK, but the complete lack of even a basic stabilizer puts them at quite a disadvantage on the move.

As Ship says above... The M46 is probably what you should stick with until you get to the M60A1 AOS, RISE, and TTS models.

Fundamentally, there is no advantage to having the M47 other than a smaller turret profile (At cost of 0,3 BR), the M48 has a stronger hull (At the cost of 0,3 BR), and then there's no real point to the M60 if you could instead just research the A1 who has a nicer turret-face and a stabiliser.

and it's skill issue if you can't use tank that need no brain to use

An argument could equally be made as follows:
(1) 7.3 (Or 7.7, or 8.0) tanks were never supposed to be as good as an 8.3 tank, or they would be 8.3 themselves.
(2) That the WMA has soggy tissue paper for armor, and that even planes with .30 caliber (much less .50...) machine guns can pose a serious threat to it.
(3) That ~16.5 horsepower per ton for 8.3 is average at best- you need a lot of room for the 301 to "stretch his legs".
and (4) that the only round worth using on that tank (APFSDS) is equivalent to what several other 8.0/8.3 tanks use (DM33, M111, etc), and grossly underperforms what some 8.7 tanks have access to (Type 93, DM33, 3BM28).

That right there is the issue.

Most British tanks just fire slugs with no HE filler, so until you get to quality AP(FS)DS rounds, you will have to aim for modules to specifically take a tank out piece by piece.

Pretty much this.. - Early on, British vehicles have always had a (comparatively..) brutal time making clean one-hit kills, and it doesn't get any better until you start getting Shot Mk.8 and APDS/superior ammo. At least, that's been my experience.

The history of the Swedish Armed Forces goes back half a millennium, when Gustav Vasa led a rebellion against Denmark, secured Sweden’s independence and became its king. On January 14th, 1521, sixteen young men were chosen to be Gustav’s life guards. And even today, the Life Guards are one of the largest units in the Swedish Armed Forces.

Biggest issue would be the type and size of the ATA missiles payload (Comparative to something designed explicitly for anti-armor role).

Happens on occasion for me, exiting/relaunching typically solves it.

Is it repeatable for you?
