Close range weapon

Take one upturned monkey (type used to knock in pickets) and aim in direction of opfor, drop thunderflash in monkey followed by tin of compo (pilchards are good as no one eats em).

Not too accurate but lethal when it hits.

Tea; boosts your skills 10%; however after 7 minutes your tank will stand still for an obligatory 2 minutes while your crew is consuming said tea.

My grandpa likes to tell how when he was in the Royal Signals (in 1945) and his rations would consist of some bread slices and a tin of corned beef and all the americans would come along trying to trade their chewing gum, cigarettes, playing cards, tobacco, whisky etc and none of them could trade because we were being rationed goddamit!

One time when I was in Middle School (I think its correct translation Ru-Education to Eu-Education) our class visited a veteran. He said that they traded rations with Brits and give them to USA troopers. And the funny thing that he mentioned is that rations that USSR assault teams had were the ones that came from USA: canned meat, chocolate and other.

Bovril surely? 'Tis set in the 40's after all!!

And as for tea, next time you use the tank it can't move for the first 30 seconds of the game due to a piss break  :Smile_harp:

I just picture the crew banging into each other, tea flying out of the pots as the tank rolls at top speed over broken terrain. Broken china littering the floor, cans of corned beef getting mixed up with the spent shell casings...and a cheery song to cover the engine sound.

If James May taught me anything, it's that British people don't do anything before having a nice hot cup of Bovril.

Or some proper Beer (who ever heard of an Englishman drinking rum, unless he was on a boat?)

As it would be for a British crew, that would be warm beer then... http://forum.worldof..._Default.gif.   The rest of us prefer it cold http://forum.worldof...le_Default.gif.

Ale is actually served cold, just not as cold as largers. Typically if you're served an "extra cold" beer, its to disguise the fact it has no taste. Also, because ale uses a different yeast and fermentation system to larger its not good to massively cool it as i think it kills the yeast, thus rendering the ale bunk and sour.

As for consumables Tea is probably the most appropriate, i do like my tea! :Smile_great:
