  1. Not explicitly a Sherman question, but is there a good writeup on the wartime operations of Chrysler or Ford?
  2. There is no issue at all with fitting shock absorbers on Christie suspensions, the British put them in place of the guide rod in the center of the spring.
  3. I don't know why you think it was a nightmare to repair, replacement of springs was something that could be done at company repair workshops without much difficulty. As for taking up room inside the vehicle, the British actually praised this solution because it did not increase the height of the tank or require skirts like their own tanks had. Although the British always had a pretty complicated relationship with suspensions. Actually I wonder, there is nothing stopping one from making a tank with both interleaved road wheels and a Christie suspension...
  4. Speaking of M4A3s, I just learned that Dragon makes a 1:6 scale M4A3. One sixth! I don't think that will even fit on a bookshelf...
  5. Didn't they learn from Russia that nothing good can come from electing a dude named Boris?
  6. Found something mysterious: What is HECF? High Explosive Contact Fuse? Surely a 95 mm HE round doesn't go through 120 mm of armour.
  7. That one was 1/16th, this one is in 1/35th: Full album
  8. They talk a lot about the collapsible wire stock on the "German submachinegun", so it's probably the MP-40. Although maybe one could argue that the CIA started the rumour that the AK is a clone of the Stg.44
  9. I got drunk and stole everything from a dude's house, so far a quick reskin can make this into a passable 90s Russia simulator.
  10. The T-34 book seems to have been negatively received, a lot of people were making fun of the made up MS-2 and MS-3 tanks (I think they thought the MS-1 was the T-16?). How's the actual T-34 part of it?
  11. There are lots of videos of Allied soldiers driving Goliaths around for fun like RC cars or even riding them.
  12. Haynes says: However, that is not entirely correct. The "M4A5" column refers to Canadian built "Grizzly" tanks, which never received their own special index, and were called M4A1s when a numerical index was used. M4A5 refers only to the Ram tank, with over 2000 built.
  13. I'm 5 hours into Kingdom Come Deliverance, and I think I have yet to win a fight. Highlights of the game so far include getting beaten up by the village idiot, running away from law enforcement, getting beaten up by law enforcement, and getting beaten up by looters.
  14. Is that the "Ron Paul will make anime real", but for Brazil?
  15. I like books about tanks so much that I even wrote one myself. https://www.mortonsbooks.co.uk/product/view/productCode/15014
  16. Another identification question: is this an M4A2 or an M4? There seems to be some kind of extra guard on the back that's obscuring all the identifying features.
  17. Steel Division 2 isn't on sale, maybe it's still too new. It seems worth picking up though entirely through the amount of butthurt werhaboos in user reviews.
  18. I'm not looking to play multiplayer, so the fact that it has more single player content is great. I bought Witcher 3 with all the DLC when it was $30 and didn't regret it for a second, so you should absolutely buy it.
  19. Anyone played Battle Academy 2? It's on sale and seems pretty good, but I've played Slitherine's earlier offerings and they were WAY too dense for me. https://store.steampowered.com/app/306640/Battle_Academy_2_Eastern_Front/ Also Steel Division 2 is steeply discounted, can anyone recommend that? https://store.steampowered.com/app/572410/Steel_Division_Normandy_44/
