"The D Day Challenge"

May 24, 2019

Challenges and Marathons are not normally my things based on the amount of time you need to put in to get 'free stuff'. However, this one isn't so bad at all.

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Allied landings in Normandy. This landmark event was one of the turning points of World War II and marked the opening of the Second Front in Western Europe.

To commemorate this time in history there is a special event: The D-Day Challenge. It will last 14 days, from May 24 to June 6.

The ultimate reward of the D-Day Challenge is the fabulous M10 RBFM, a French Premium Tier V tank destroyer with a historical custom look, Sirocco. This formidable TD became the symbol of the liberation of France and all Western Europe in August 1944.

The M10 RBFM was in service with the marines of the French Army. These tank destroyers actively participated in military operations after the Allied landings in Normandy.

During the liberation of Paris, the M10 RBFM  helped destroy a German "Panther" right on the Champs-Élysées, with a precise direct shot from a 2 km distance! During World War II, a special style called "Sirocco" was applied to the M10 RBFM. This style became an integral part of its formidable image, making it instantly recognizable to enemies.

 

Complete every mission of the Challenge and park this legendary vehicle in your Garage for free! The tank has been recreated the M10 RBFM down to the smallest detail, so it’s fully consistent with its historical prototype. This tank destroyer is a vivid reminder of one of the most important events in world history.

 

How the Challenge Works

To get your hands on the M10 RBFM with the unique Sirocco style, you need to complete 14 consecutive missions.
