Once again a Great Video.  +1

Waiting to see you squeeze into that Flat Tank destroyer though.  :popcorn:

 

Just looking at your head clearance in the driving position (I know you're Tall) but do the Drivers seats have any Restraints to stop the driver Braining himself in Rough Terrain, given the limited suspension?

 


Vote NOW, to Wall up the Lakeville Valley Pass.

So Many Idiots.

So little Shells.

I thought the slow speed of these tanks meant that personal protection like leather caps were all that's needed.

Yeah you'd think that, given that's all they had,  but you look at some of the Test Runs Videos for stuff like the Mark 1's and Churchills where they're climbing steep enbankments, or even just Cresting hills and then Plummeting Violently down the other side, makes me wonder how many Crews were Brained or Injured just traversing the country side.  Not to mention Squinting down the View ports as the Tank barrels around.

It'd be interesting to here how Crew cope with Rough terrain and General movement through a battlefield.

The ironic thing is in WW2 British tankers didn't wear leather helmets, they wore berets.
