Guys, keep it on topic. I know that this will stay as a rather volitile topic for the foreseeable future however do keep politics out of it. So far most of you guys have been keeping this suggestion on-topic, please keep it that way. I also cleaned up some of the off-topic stuff.

My position:

 

It shouldn't be its standalone nation, but I would welcome the decals and roundels and such

My reasoning is that there's two ways to go about adding Ukraine as its own full tree:

- start at rank 4 with a bunch of copy paste stuff before you get to anything really Ukrainian

- start at rank 6 and have what is just a post-1991 stub tree
Neither is desirable in my view.

I'd like to see Ukrainian tanks integrated into the rest of the Soviet tree, which would fit well considering most of them are further developments of Soviet designs

And Western tech that has been sent to Ukraine can fit as premiums/event vehicles, be it in the Soviet tree or that of the sender

 

Something like this (non-Soviet/Russian vehicles are highlighted in flag colors), as should any other post-Soviet additions

I play around with this sheet a lot so don't take everything literally (especially not the ranks), think of it as a rough sketch

Anything coming out of recent events should be bared off, and for good reason.

There's no good reason. Donated vehicles are essential part of armed forces and all of them are combat tested at this point (the process, which not many vehicles in other nations trees has ever experienced).

 

ps: voted yes, should start at rank V, MOAR donated vehicles and trophies

for example, the T-72 AMT of the Russian Army...

New update, if this does occur, it will be added to the honorable mentions/future additions tab of the suggestion. Reports are coming in that White House officials may send Bradley IFV’s to the UAF. I’m not sure what model, some options are M2A2 ODS, M2A3 Bradley, or M3A3 Bradley.

Sure, why not? It would be Gaijin's decision in the end if some specific trophy will add something to the specific nation tree.
Also numbers and extensive use could determine if a trophy will be premium\package vehicle or it could be placed into a regular tree.


If Ukraine already has (according to OSINT sources) 100 captured T-72B3 obr 2016 and 80+ older T-72B3 and uses them in combat extensively - that's a significant enough number to place this tank into regular tree if necessary, And yes, I know about the claim that only 50% of trophies are usable and the other half is garbage useful only as source for parts - what's left it's still significant numbers.

 

Now something like T-90M on the other hand - we know that 30 OMBr in AFU already repaired it and uses it in combat. Also some amount of Т-90А (let's say 5 out of 12 captured) is used.
Would they be useful to Ukrainian tech tree? Maybe, but probably not.
Could Gaijin use the fact that they were trophies and sell them as 80$ packages at some point in the future? They absolutely could.
Will I personally be interested in these tanks in Ukrainian tree? Most likely not.

The Questions more about, Do Russia need a captured AMT as premium/event? It would've been 'yes', if the vehicle options for Russia were already dwindling ...
But since the nation already has so many more vehicles left to be added like, T-72M1M, T-72B2 Rogatka, T-72B3 Arena, Object 187 ... (just to name a few) ... I don't think so.
There's already a huge backlog of Russia's own vehicles that needs to be added first.
And even before that, the already existing Ru TT is oversaturated and filled to the brim.

People be crazy if they don't think this is coming eventually. 

 

It simply makes economic sense. Gaijin will always be adding more nations, why?  Because the grind makes people play, the grind makes people pay .  Ukraine has identified itself as one of the most important military forces in modern history, outside of the usual suspects.  They are essentially assured to be a tech tree.  

 

As an aside, Gaijin. I don't plan on spending a penny on the Russian TT.  I will however happily buy every Ukrainian premium you offer.  

Signed,

A whale.

An Ukrainian TT + Polish sub-tree is the obvious combo going forward for WT (if Ukr TT gets greenlit, that is).
:P

 

Yeah, with the deepening cooperation, I may build a TT with Polish and Ukrainian vehicles. I don't know if it will be a suggestion any time soon. May combine my Ukraine Ground Forces Tree Suggestion with my Polish Sub-tree Suggestion (not making the Poles the sub-tree, just use the vehicles from it) and create a Polish-Ukrainian Ground Forces tree. Probably could start from Rank I due to Polish vehicles and the T-12/T-24 medium tanks with some help from BT-series, and other Soviet vehicles. 

 

We'll see :good:

Adapting Sea Sparrow RIM-7 missile to fire from 2K12 Kub (SA-6) SAM system -- Buk's predecessor have already been carried out in past.
Raytheon (Sea Sparrow manufacturer) and Polish WZU-2 have worked on this since 2007.

Also, Czech company RETIA in cooperation with European missile manufacturer MBDA adapted Aspide 2000 surface-air missile (a derivative of Sea Sparrow RIM-7E with better engine and seeker) to the same Kub 2K12 system.
