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

    The dimensional accuracy may have suffered a little from Office Lens. It didn't seem off on paper.

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

    The tank I am referring to was sent to Tel-El-Kebir in August of 1942. It still had the old M2 gun and you can see the distinctive counterweight in the camouflage diagrams they distributed. The ones distributed only a few months later depict the standard M3 gun.
  3. Thank you for continuing your work in teaching us how to root out Kharkovite saboteurs.

    There was definitely more than one. Both Michael and the first tank to arrive in North Africa had an M2 gun.

    Books About Tanks

    The local university had a book sale, so I basically swept up everything with as much as the word "tank" in it off the military history table. But wait, there's more. Zoom, enhance! These books bound in red cloth are each worth as much as the rest of that stack combined. They're official histories of the Canadian army, published only a few years after the war with the backing of the Department of National Defense. As a result they have amazing photographs and maps actually drawn by military cartographers. And the best part is that since they've been printed 70 years ago, so they're all out of copyright

    75 mm gun M2. Their Sherman didn't have an AA .50 cal.

    That's no problem for a Russian army "restoration" team.

    Movie tanks and terrible Vismods

    I can't tell if this is a Sherman they tried to disguise as something else or something else they tried to disguise as a Sherman. It's bad either way.

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

    It was great when people tried to pronounce the name in Teamspeak. My favourites were "leffe" and "lefeuf".

    Tanks of the Commonwealth in WWII thread

    My article on the Sexton is out: https://warspot.ru/13071-ponomar-boga-voyny Sorry @whelm, the editor cut out my acknowledgement.

    @Jeeps_Guns_Tanks do you know if there were any M2-armed Shermans with only one hull MG? I have a British report where it's almost certainly a tank with an M2 (the first to arrive in Africa), but the description says there is only one hull MG instead of there.

    Yup, it was at the museum. Hopefully the parts won't sit out there for long.
