WWII Tank Simulators

I feel like a tourist asking this here...

I am searching for a good, realistic tank simulator set during the second world war. One that is not too new, as I am running fairly modest system specifications. If anybody can point me in the right direction, it would be appreciated.

War Thunder is getting tanks soon, but you'll probably be better off with the suggestions above

Default Good Tank Sim

Howdy,
Have you tried World of Tanks, It's free to download. It's a simple to play on- line multiplayer. It's all the rage. The graphics are nice which you can adjust to match your system's capability.

Try it out!

Well, I've heard really bad things about WoT, but thanks for suggesting it

Personally, I'll just wait until War Thunder gets tanks.

Ok....can somebody clear this up for me?

I thought World of Tanks and World of Warplanes and that stuff....isn't that just the separate pieces of War Thunder in separate games? I

World of Tanks and World of Warplanes are made by Wargaming.net. War Thunder is made by Gaijin. Same basic theory, but Wargaming.net's games aren't as realistic as War Thunder.

Default Windows 8

Tanks for all of your help. I managed to get a copy of Steel Fury: Kharkov 1942. It runs nicely on my current computer, but I am planing on possibly upgrading soon. Does SFK42 work with winows 8?

If I were you, I'd get Windows 7 instead. I haven't heard much praise for Windows 8.

Windows 8.1 64bit is very nice, I've come to really really like it, even tho I love XP more and hate to see it go. Not all games you could play on XP are playable on 8.1, and that is the biggest downfall I've seen for 8.1.

Good choice. Just started playing my copy recently and heartily enjoying it.

The NTA 1.8 mod is highly recommended, details on the Gravitram forum here:

http://graviteam.com/forum/index.php?topic=10944.0

The mission reports here showcase some of the extra stuff you get with this and the Steel Panzers Mod:

Good hunting!
