I was just wondering if you could tell us a bit about the main battle tanks of the modern age, compared to the ones we see in the game? Only in a general sense of course.
What are main differences, similarities or peculiar notes. Please remember I am asking from a.. let's say "civilians" perspective though.. I don't really know much about tanks except for what one can learn from the WoT game.
I didn't really give one whit (?) about tanks until I started playing this game, that's when I started getting interested in the WWII-era tanks.. Then I saw this wonderful clip from Top Gear where Jeremy Clarkson gets chased around by a Challenger 2 tank (http://www.youtube.c...h?v=-wKfpPrRVIo
). Hilarious! That's when I got interested in the modern MBTs as well, such as the Challenger 2, Leopard 2, M1A2 Abrams etc.
I've tried to find interesting (documentary-style) clips about these on youtube, but the few I find just seem to be focused on promoting one tank, and if you try to read any of the "discussions" going on there.. Well..
So this goes for everyone else out there as well, if you know of a good source of tank info, youtube or otherwise, and it's not too boring & technical, please post it here!
I realize this became a bit long and unfocused, so to sum up: Please tell us a bit about modern MBTs compared to WWII-era tanks (& tank tactics) and also if you will, a bit about modern MBTs in general.
Thanks & have a great day!
