    Britons are in trouble

    That is such an incredibly retarded location to place the mortar, just leave it off if it’s that big a problem, or place it in the external storage bins. I guess tank design has never been a strong suite of the British, though.

    What is that tube on the turret front? That’s not the mortar is it?

    General news thread

    Are the people of France realizing they aren’t actually free?

    Britons are in trouble

    I thought that at first too, but I came to the conclusion that they just didn’t mount the heavy armor around the tank. The British aren’t that stupid... I hope.

    The guns not shortened either? That L55 is gonna be a pain in a real street fight.
  7. Personally, my only concern with calling this thing a planet is if it has cleared its orbit of comparably sized objects (Sedna and Eris come to mind). https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clearing_the_neighbourhood If it has, then: CHOO CHOO! All aboard the hype train!

    The interesting ship photos/art thread.

    I don’t have any books from anyone; I’m looking to start collecting. I’ll look into Norman Friedman, though.

    The interesting ship photos/art thread.

    Anyone know any good books on WWII ships? I'm looking for more technically oriented books, but the normal "history of X" will suffice.
  10. Let’s try to be a little nicer and/or forgiving. But if peasant could make the question clearer, that would be welcome.
  11. we have a topic for Chinese vehicles, including MBTs.

    WoT v WT effort-thread

    Since I like to repeatedly bash my head against the brick wall that is the suggestions section of WT, do these battleships sound decent for a battleship test, to see if WT (and the community) can handle such large ships? USS Nevada (1941) KMS Scharnhorst (1935) Parizhskaya Kommuna (1938) HMS Warspite (1937) Fuso (1938) Guilio Cesare (1937) Strasbourg (1939)

    What are we playing?

    I honestly haven't kept up with your recent Endwar posts, been really busy (far too busy, IMO) with finishing this semester. Last I remember, your were testing the AI in the skirmish mode, but I haven't sat down and read the posts since about halfway through page 8 (and all of page 9). Sorry for not keeping track But, I would prefer the American campaign, me being called "Aggressively American" once , and I'm sorta interested to see the abominations exceptionally well thought out modifications to the US vehicles (is it weird that I like the look of the "T-100 ogre" with the AA flamethrower and bustle mounted autocannons?). Although, it would be funny to see the euro-trash take over the (western) world. In relation to the second quote, I take an interest in RTS's, maybe because I'm terrible at them and/or appreciate the skill of those who are good at them (I usually turn into a spectator when playing RTS games, watching things move around and/or build, interact with other things, etc.). My favorite is Supreme Commander, and it's successor, Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance (stay away from SupCom 2 though), due to the massive scale, good graphics, and relative simplicity... and it was made in 2007 but still has a decent sized community (Forged Alliance Forever) that is still going 11 years later! It's a must have for RTS fans, but I cant do it justice, so I would have to recommend watching youtube videos on the game too see what it's all about. I personally watch Gyle Cast: Which is a Casting channel for Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance Forever. This is a "short match" for SupCom, of only ~30 minutes (I choose a "short" video cause I know some of you are busy), but it should give an ok look into SupCom, especially the incredible size of the battlefields you fight on. And for posterity, here's one of the crazier games, at about 1 hour 10 minutes play time: It's a great game (and available on steam), and I would recommend it for any of the RTS players on here.

    General Naval Warfare News/Technology thread.

    Not really news or related, but does anyone know the anti air armaments for the Nevada or Pennsylvania Class battleships in 1941 (Pearl Harbor)? I see they had their 8x 5”/25 mark 10s, but I’m reading conflicting sources stating either 4x 3”/50 or 4x 1.1 inch quads, as well as maybe 8x 0.50cals (ambiguous writing). I’ve looked at some pictures, but I can’t make out too much on Nevada between 1935 and 1941, except the 5 inch mark 10s. Anyone have any info?
