  1. Aerospace Pictures and Art Thread

    Check out my "IL-2"
  2. Books About Tanks

    The local used book store is closing up, which means great deals. The military history section was sparse, but I scored these bad boys at four bucks a pop. The Canadians at War 1939-1945 is only Volume 2, which means that it starts in 1943. Some alright photos in this one, printed on matte paper, but with slight water damage. Canada and the Korean War was probably the most promising of the three, but the biggest letdown. Almost nothing at all about armour, and even though it's by the Directorate of National Heritage, the photos they have online are in far better quality. Very disappointing. Also there is moderate water damage. Canadians at War, on the other hand, surpassed my expectations. The photos are fantastic, with many high res full page spreads. I don't expect much from the text, but the price was right.
  3. The M4 Sherman Tank Epic Information Thread.. (work in progress)

    Interesting opinion, considering that a) the Sherman V ended up being the Commonwealth's most numerous tank and b) the Wright engines were the least reliable of them all in 1944 tests.
  4. Lets talk about languages

    It's completely different from и or "yi". The best explanation for a foreign speaker I ever heard for ы is the grunt you make when you're punched in the stomach.
  5. StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    StuG IIIIV : the best tank that was not a tank The Panther had money-saving shortcuts in the accounting I've never seen a claim that it took fewer hours to make, just that it cost less.
  6. StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    Hey guys, you know what is great for our tank industry? Making a tank that requires twice as much steel when our metallurgy went to shit.
  7. WoT v WT effort-thread

    Why? You'd think they would love to have more German tanks.
  8. StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    Transmission repairs on the Jagdpanther are even more fun than on the regular kind.
  9. The M4 Sherman Tank Epic Information Thread.. (work in progress)

    What are the welding seams on the applique armour for? Is it composed of several pieces?

    Another tiny man for my tiny tanks.

  12. StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    The Panther's invulnerable Kruppstahl was too strong for any Allied gun, so they had to attack the ground around it until the Panther was stuck on a slight elevation and could not move in any direction without breaking its final drives.
