Hello everyone, I modified the Czechoslovak branch proposal I made to reflect the findings and discussions with V.Francev and J.Tintera (Czech historians).

Again, not much today. Storm has finished reading the feedback under his post about how much “action” there is in World of Tanks.

Hello everyone, I am sure many of you know and like the American server’s video series, “Chieftain’s Hatch”, where The_Chieftain, history specialist and former tanker himself, introduces various armored vehicles (last time, it was the IS-7).
