After three and a half years of quietly minding its own business TNAC is reforming. The main aim of this is to assemble like minded individuals together to forge an everlasting  collective of magnificence whose imperial majesty will resound throughout the ages. Of course in the early days this could well be mistaken for a group of blokes attempting to play tanks and socialising on say a nice new shiny Discord server.

 

 

The aspiring candidates will:-


 

1. Sometimes log on to game.

2. Be suitably case hardened to life and not easily offended by trivial things. (The definition of trivial will change as is inappropriate).

3. Not use their feet to play the game.

4. May or may not wish to platoon dependent of a complex serious of neurological responses regarding the suitability of others.

5. May or may not wish to play team games for precisely the same reasons as in point 4 but on a larger scale.

6. Be broadly read, educated or witty enough to distract clan members from the ennui of life.

7. Achieve 6. with general crudity or such gross offensiveness as to illicit a response.


You will be receive a nice logo on your tank (courtesy of Mr 1at7).

 

Communication will be in English, Old Entish and International Sign Language. Optionally, after a few drinks, colloquial Gibberish will be adopted.

A couple of old faces have come back which is nice and Discord server is up. Will just be slowly building up and will be social and toons only for the foreseeable future. Not setting sky high entry requirements. Happy to train up new players so long as they want to improve.

There is some debate over the qualifying criteria 'doesn't play with their feet'. This probably equates to over 52% win rate at every tier although 54% would be better. Although, given the current state of the player base even 50% players seem like rocking horse droppings. This could also be my jaded view after playing the game for far too long though.

 

Lets just say if you have some ability and can improve or are already very good but just want to chill out then its probably ok.

Welcome to new members.

 

Todays topic of discussion is the unexplained correlation of Fish Stocks off the Arabian Coast and female hair pattern loss.

Many people have asked if we still have any of the photos from the early recruiting threads? Well of course. Here is the FV433 or Gun Equipment 105mm L109 (Abbot).

 


 

 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 We apologise that the tank is partially obscured by one of the TNAC members.


 

 

 

Maximum range with 105 mm Fd Mk 1 ammunition was 15 km, the Mk 2 gave 17.4 km. Maximum rate of fire was 6–8 rounds per minute.

The gun was able to elevate to 70 degrees and depress to -5 degrees, sufficient to engage enemy AFVs if necessary. Traverse and shell ramming were powered by electrical servo mechanisms, elevation and cartridge ramming were by hand.

Due to the number of charges and its compact turret, the Abbot did not have calibrating sights. Instead, the sight mount had both Tangent Elevation (TE) and Angle of Sight Scales and a separate Gun Rule to convert range into TE, corrected for the muzzle velocity variation from standard. The dial sight had all scales internal, illuminated and viewed through a single eyepiece.


 If hand ramming is your thing then TNAC may be for you. Join Today!

Well, unbelievably some people are still daft enough to join. We are starting to get a nice community going here. Todays special offer is Boodaxe's track linkage counting service. Astonishingly many so called 'unicum' players have no idea of the number of track linkages per vehicle and the importance of this. Join TNAC and this can be remedied!

Well its recruitment time again at TNAC. This week we sent FullofLead to the local tank museum to take a picture of the very popular tier 6 tank the T34-85.

Sadly, the tank once again appears to be obscured and the planned discussion of the side-on penetration points will have to wait for another day. If anyone has some better photography skills please join.

Well yesterdays attempt at studying the T34-85 was frankly a disaster. However, FullofLead assured me that he had taken some shots of a T55, so todays topic will focus on this fine specimen.

 

Image result for action girls tank

So as to avoid confusion with the T54,  the lecture intended to begin with a frontal examination of the twin headlights but unbelievably even this simple picture has been messed up. Frustratingly, the full length of the main weapon cannot be seen, although we can determine it is at maximum elevation which would indicate a load is ready to be shot. There is at least a satisfactory view of the leather skirt pulled tightly around the base of the mantlet. This is a common feature intended to prevent the ingress of fluid to the inner cavities.

Again, we apologise for the poor quality of the imagery and will endeavour to improve.
