Fun tank, but too slow and with the wrong engine stats (specially compared to the Lend Lease Premium)



The 2 toptier engines for the Valentine are of the "Detroit Diesel Series 71"

Those are 236 hp



These are the stats ingame:

GMC 6004 6-71S  138 hp
GMC 6004 6-71A  165 hp



These are the stats of the entire engine series:

Model Displacement  Engine configuration  Horsepower
1-71   1.2L (71ci)   Single-cylinder 10
2-71   2.3L (142ci) I-2    68
3-71   3.5L (213ci) I-3   (I=inline)   113
4-71   4.7L (284ci) I-4    160
6-71   7.0L (426ci) I-6    238
6V-71 7.0L (426ci)   V-6   238
8V-71 9.3L (568ci)   V-8 (V=V-engine) 318
12V-71  14.0L (852ci)  V-12    450
16V-71  18.6L (1136ci)  V-16 635
24V-71  27.9L (1704ci)  V-24 1800

GMC 6004
The inline 6-71 was adapted to British requirements as the powerplant for Canadian (and later British) built Valentine tanks where it was known as the GMC 6004;[1] orders being placed in late September 1940. A twin 6-71 engine setup - "6046 Twin Diesel" - was used for US M3 Medium and M4 Sherman tanks.



No less then fair we should get the actuall hp/weight ratio. The Russian Lend Lease Premium tank supposedly has a better engine (32km/h AEC-A190  140hp 8.7/tonne vs 24km/h GMC 6004 6-71A  165 hp vs the real GMC 6004 6-71 7.0L (426ci)  6 cylinder inline engine with 238hp....)



Waddayathink?


P.S. sorry for the crappy list (you can see the one I tried to copy in the wiki)
