Author: Yuri Pasholok Source: http://warspot.ru/6407-uslovno-godnyy Hello everyone, Tanks in foreign service are one of my favourite topics. German tanks used by Czechoslovaks, French tanks used by Germans and vice versa etc. I just find it interesting to see how other nations deal with foreign captured equipment. Luckily for me, Yuri Pasholok wrote another interesting article,…   [ далее ]

Hello everyone, it’s been a while since I posted on any topic like this one, but recently, I gave this topic some thought. Here’s a thought about the Israeli branch and its introduction into World of Tanks. Yes, I said World of Tanks – for Armored Warfare, this is not really a problem (there’s the…   [ далее ]

Many tanks to Life in Black for bringing this up. Hello everyone, here’s something interesting for you. Lebanon was always one of those countries that operate really strange or obsolete equipment, making them super interesting for tank enthusiasts. There were some interesting lebanese conversions, which mostly met their fate during the fighting with Israel or…   [ далее ]

The thing is, the SA18 gun, used on the Renault FT light tank, was already obsolete by 1926. The reasons why this gun appeared on this new vehicle were purely economic…   [ далее ]

Author: Yuri Pasholok Source: http://warspot.ru/6356-menshe-da-bolshe Hello everyone, another interesting article by Yuri Pasholok came out recently, this time about the development of the Renault R35 light tank. It’s… very long, so I might split it into two parts. I’ll see. So sit back, get some omelette du fromage and let’s begin :) The French light…   [ далее ]

Hello everyone, normally I am trying to avoid Wargaming topics in any way, but this is something that’s actually quite abstract and doesn’t apply to World of Tanks only. The French Tier 2-7 line is a good example. Basically, what happened: Yuri Pasholok recently wrote in RU community an angry post that he proposed a…   [ далее ]

Author: AutoChenille Hello everyone, check this out. AutoChenille (EU forums) sent a couple of photos of the restored Batchat at Saumur. His comment: As you can see, the BatChat is now displayed next to its “tech tree”, with the tiny but cute ELC AMX, and the fearsome AMX 13. This shows that the Saumur museum…   [ далее ]

Yup, it’s the Littlefield Collection Panther, completely restored. Unlike Cutland’s videos that contain crap (in the last one, he can’t tell a 20pdr from the L7 for example), Nicholas Moran is perfect as usual. And yes, I know this is a Wargaming video but hey, one has to appreciate the quality, right? Check how fantastically…   [ далее ]

Yep, this is a 65 ton French heavy. As far as I know, this is the only drawing available for it. Basically, what you have here is a nice, German-influenced tank (just look at the suspension) from 1950. A 1000hp Maybach engine, maximum speed of 40 km/h, 300km operation radius. It’s big, really big. Overall…   [ далее ]

Thanks to Yuri Pasholok for notifying me of this… About the US M1917 Light Tank, basically a copy of the French Renault FT-17.

Hello everyone, as usual, I attended the Lešany Museum opening for the 2016 season around three weeks ago. I can say that it was really nice – the opening is traditionally visited by as many people as the Tank Day so the place was fairly empty, but there were still interesting things to be seen….   [ далее ]

So let’s get to it. Hmm – I wonder if I still remember this interface :) After the war, several hundred of knocked-out or simply abandoned German SPGs were left on newly liberated…   [ далее ]

Hello everyone, the definition of a Plot device is “anything that moves the plot forward”. In this case, “plot element” might be a better expression, it’s something I gave a lot of thought to.

Right, so – in my last post, I mentioned writing a book.
