  1. Bill looks like someone took a hat stand, wrapped a coat around it and glued a balloon with his face on top
  2. StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    Very hard to acquire in bulk, due to the pressing need for Krupp stahl in the mix
  3. StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    They short on lampposts or something?
  4. Because Teddy owns McKinley's spotlight maybe?
  5. Movie tanks and terrible Vismods

    Looks like the "gun" is modeled after the Crucio Siege Tank from Starcraft II
  6. The original Halo for PC still has a community and a sizable amount of servers to choose from Wish Nexuiz/Xonotic was so lucky...
  7. I managed to walk past a live TV of that segment from Carlson's show just prior to the 8 minute mark, and the knee jerk reaction after listening to the guy was "Man, that guy has his head up his own ass." "Tucker goes home with the kill" indeed
  8. StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    Yeah, attached to the hull Well E-100's design is jumbled due to the fact that it aped off the Tiger-Maus, and received incremental design changes/proposals all the way to the end of the war
  9. The Improvised Weapons Thread

    I suppose you guys have all seen the AK partially built out of a shovel right?
  10. Joe Biden memes are the most I've seen of the guy in the past 8 years He wasn't bad narrating to nuclear bombs in Trinity and Beyond: The Atomic Bomb movie
  11. Here's how Johnathan Pie lays it on the table Favorite part: "...and if my mansplaining is triggering you, then you can either fuck off to your safe space, or you can engage and debate me and tell me what I'm getting wrong..."
  12. Now if only he actually had a policy for the space program...
  13. Noticed in one of Yuri Pasholok's articles that the guy behind the E-25 just wouldn't let the interleaved suspension concept go. He tried to get basically the E 25 patented in the US
  14. WoT v WT effort-thread

    Gaijin announced medpacks for reviving lost crewmen in non arcade modes of Ground Forces Naturally Anti-WoT paranoia abounds
  15. I believe among the community, the general consensus is that when it had worse effects than #1 it was #2, and #2 was baaaaaaaaaaad(Effects being only part of it mind you). #3 was passable for the fact that it actually retained continuity with the first, and #4 is fully CGI animated(direct-to-video, but I haven't seen anything particularly scathing about it since I saw it) And then there's Roughnecks, which like Firefly is one of those shows that was yanked too soon.
  16. WoT v WT effort-thread

    And some Wehraboos still think it's shit I once made a joke about the crew hitboxes for the Waffen IV and how they'd basically have to sit with their legs dangling off the end of the tank, and The_Chieftain basically confirmed that's how it is
  17. Wargame Thread

    Any reason not to get the whole trilogy for $15 since it's on discount on Steam for the weekend?
  18. Movie tanks and terrible Vismods

    It probably did look good when they rebuilt the thing, but it seems like it's falling apart Maybe they should hire that one ass that ruined King Tut's death mask to fix it
  19. Movie tanks and terrible Vismods

    I'm curious as to how one makes a German tank look insufficiently boxy, but they found a way
  20. StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    I thought maybe that was on of the springs from a Panzer III seen up at the rest of the hill, but after reviewing the back plate and seeing one of the side engine vents flipped and buried behind the turret ring, I concur After digging through Germany's Panther Tank, Tigers I and II And Their Variants(The crappy translated version of Tiger Und Seine Abarten), and Panzer Tracts 5-4, the depression is listed as -8/+15 for the KwK 43, which matches the planned specs for the Schmalturm 88. Cross referencing this with the project to install a rangefinder in the Tiger II, they might be sharing the same rangefinder design. If this is true, the plan for the Tiger II's turret was to raise the turret roof ever so slightly(max height increase of rearward edge: 25mm) to permit the full range of motion with the rangefinder, maybe that could have been under consideration. Though on the other hand, they had already achieved these gun depression angles with the Schmalturm as-is for the 75mm L/70. I suppose I'd have to sit down and compare the dimensions of the two guns breech setups Oh derp. Just noticed Doyle made an interior drawing of the Schmalturm 88 for GPT. *headdesk* As for the muzzle brake, that was one of the planned specs. The Germans decided to live without it.
  21. StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    I assumed so, but Doyle's drawing isn't very telling of the internal space other than going off the end of the barrel
  22. StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    Tried my own hand in MSPaint to get it as similar as I could with the excerpt of the blueprint Yuri Pasholok posted(4th one down)
