German Version Flavor

Post by Diablo »

So this is more a question of style and personal preference:

The change in doctrine themes came with two rebrands, "Propaganda" and "Tank Support". The first one doesn't really need translation, but for TS there is some ambiguity. I for one, generally call it Panzer Support, because it sounds unmistakely axis that way. "Tank Support" - to me - sounds like it could be an allied doc. I'm not entirely happy with the word "Support" either, but that's another topic.

My actual question is adressed to the german speaking BK players.
How would you translate the new doc name? "Panzerunterstützungsdoktrin" would be a quite literal and obvious choice, although it bears huge resemblance to the production building "Panzerunterstützungskommando" (Tank Support Kommand), which i dont appreciate.

Lets hear your thoughts!

This sounds weirdly non-grammatical to me.

Like in armored reinforcements? Mh i think "Panzerreserven Doktrin" would be better, but it isnt really true to the whole doc concept either.
Panzergrenadieredoktrin?
True, but not encompassing enough.
I'd think what Panzergrenadiere stand for is mechanized warfare, especially with the vehicle buff auras.
"Mechanisierte Doktrin" sounds stupid, though. But it makes for a helluva short word: Mech

Did you use Google Translate on the first two? :^)

Ne, ich lerne seit ungefaehr 13 Jahren Deutsch,

I'm a non-native speaker and haven't had much practice in the last few years.
