On the Discovery channel is a show running called Sons of Guns, in the first episode of Season 4 there is a real life M36 Slugger AT tank moving and shooting live ammo.

The 90mm sounds completely different from the sounds in game. It was quite interesting seeing a tank in action, even if it fires on simple targets.

Discovery Channel.... ugh... National Geographic...yuk


Lack of depth and missinformation is what those channels bring.
Contradicting themselves in the same episode of a show.

Worse then FOX news...(the news show that makes you more stupid and missinformed)

One thing I learned on NG though is that Henry Ford (yes, from the FORD motorcompany) was the first foreign national (not German) to receive a German decoration for his aversion against Judean people...
But it's just one thing in 15 years

And don't forget History "let's sell some old junk" Channel... Lucky that YouTube has got a lot of old documentaries, which I strongly suggest.

*angry mode on

Sons of Guns is the absolute black hole of negativity in anything related to firearms. Let's put some rails on a knife and say "nevva bin dune befo"...

Discovery went down the shithole years ago when they started with "reality" TV like American chopper and American Hotrod. After that suddenly all kinds of shops started whoring for attention. And the worst thing is, every episode is virtually the same damn thing happening. Guys building a bike between arguing. Guys building a hotrod between arguing. Guys catching crabs between dodging storms. And the list goes on.

All the good stuff has moved to Discovery Science which, unfortunately, is a pay to view channel. National Geographic still has some decent shows, but you need to catch them between their hourly run of the Dog Whisperer.
