    Check out this "M4A1"

    What are we playing?

    I finished the Sniper Elite 4 main game, decided to play something else for a change before the DLC, so I gave Halo 4 a shot. It's a pretty game, but it doesn't pull me in at all. Back to shooting nazis in the balls, I guess.

    Dealing with declassified/classified/secret data

    There was an incident over at VIF a few years back where someone actually got jailed for leaking classified info. There are people out there keeping track of this sort of thing that aren't Australians with a stick up their ass, and those people do their jobs silently.

    Movie tanks and terrible Vismods

    It's not a real T-34. They get away with it in a really quick shot from far away, but closer up it looks terrible.

    Honestly, the tanks are probably the least bad thing about this movie...

    The M4 Sherman Tank Epic Information Thread.. (work in progress)

    It's a cutaway tank that's missing the turret as well, I don't think they are going to be restoring it. Canadian M4A2E8s are a dime a dozen, even this museum has another working one.

    The M4 Sherman Tank Epic Information Thread.. (work in progress)

    Here's the inside of a Canadian M4A2E8. What's the orange cylinder in the middle? Looks like it could be the turret basket foundation or something like that, except the E8 shouldn't have one. fff

    Could Sherman tanks still have some military use?

    You can probably get 1-2 T-55s for the price of a running Sherman. Although T-34-85s are still in service in parts of the world, so as long as you're not engaging tanks or modern AT weapons the Shermans will do fine.

    WoT v WT effort-thread

    WoT had those Chaffee races that were really fun, did they ever do an event like that again?

    Ukrainian armor - Oplot-M, T-64M Bulat and other.

    Whatever happened to that Chinese webcam equipped APC that Azov was building?

    Tanks of the Commonwealth in WWII thread

    My article on the combat career of the Sextons with the Canadian army: https://warspot.ru/13422-ponomar-vstupaet-v-boy Unfortunately I signed my soul away to Wargaming, so there won't be an English version for quite some time.

    The Enema Thread (Moderator: Tied)

    Finally, an anime worth watching. https://www.scmp.com/news/china/society/article/2178724/china-produces-karl-marx-cartoon-series-mark-200th-anniversary?fbclid=IwAR0d83e_FHGiS1AAHe7QeKLuPIvmUzuBeFLOz9jSS1sfjSM1CcGZJQPX5W0

    The M4 Sherman Tank Epic Information Thread.. (work in progress)

    @Jeeps_Guns_Tanks you've probably seen this photo a million times, but I'm adding it as a reference anyway. The stationary gun mantlet is marked as 85 mm thick. Is that the thickness throughout, or is it thinner around the sides? Similar question about the turret, where does the armour change over between 3 inches and 2 inches in thickness?
