Another great video Richard! Never realised just how small the Cromwell was for the footage and photos I've seen of it before, and it doesn't look that small in game. Would definitely be an advantage to be a skinny crew member.

The the interior of the turret looked in really good shape, but since we didn't see the rest of the interior I assume the rest of it wasn't in such great shape?

Your quite right in particular the drivers compartment was in poor condition  :Smile_amazed:

That's a really shame. Had the turret been restored? It seems odd that it was in such good condition, but the drivers compartment wasn't.

Looking forward to seeing what is next :)

For the size of the drivers compartiment. Look at this image from the manaul. Here you can see how small it truly is compared to that already small tank.

What's the height limit for Cromwell crew. I'm 188 cm and i think i wouldn't have been able to use this tank back in WW2 if i had lived then:D

yeah the good ole' meteor engine, same as the merlin but without a turbocharger I think

I always think it is crazy that in WW2 so many tanks had petrol engines, imagine the fuel consumption! lol

I saw it, I recognized it instantly - and it was enough for me ;P
(or maybe it would be enough if A27M would be included in tomorrows special ;))

And to be more specific - A27M was used mostly in 10th Armoured Cavalry Brigade - fast, fleet and deadly, while rest of 1st Armoured Division was equipped with M4 Shermans.
