Good luck in your new job, nice to have a job you enjoy. :)

on another note how about doing some shorts (pic's/video's) of the damage the different shells do i.e. showing the effect of damage/holes of 6" steel plate for starters.
I had lots of photo examples of 2" to 8" steel plate, if only I can find them.
Here you go.
Armour plate vs two pounder anti-tank

Hello Tankies,

Many of you know me as a moderator and now I am pleased to inform you I will be acting as Military Specialist Assistant. Helping our The Challenger with his duties and discussing tanks and all the related tanky things with you fine ladies and gentlemen.

Something about myself:

My name is Krešimir and I come from Croatia. A true tank enthusiast - been planning to buy one, but who knows why I was denied my permit for it.
I have been a World of Tanks player since Closed Beta, almost 3 years here.
I am also a WoWP pilot but not a very good one :)

I hope we will have many fruitful conversations and do not hesitate to poke me about anything related to the tanks or game.

Kind Regards
Hunter1911

That is a dream we all can relate to.

Depending on your country of location you may have a chance of getting one (some countries regulations do not allow possession of armored vehicles). Now the prices do tend to vary depending on the type of the tank, its rarity and condition. For example, getting a T-55 would be a lot easier than lets say getting a Panther.

Restoration of an old piece is always a nice start. But...I do not believe I have to imply the resources this project would gobble.

As for the replicas, they should strive to be as much close to the original as possible. But they do come in all sorts of variants.

I do not really say "no" to any food....kind of a reason why legend of "Chubby Hunter" was born.
