Hello,

this is a bit unexpected, the publisher Dark Horse Comics has released a WoT comic book which has been written by  two time “Eisner Award” winning writer Garth Ennis, and Artist/Co-Creator behind “Judge Dredd” Carlos Ezquerra.

A healthy break

Hello,

I’m finally back from the weekend, was camping at Tanks Trucks and Firepower and was a bit secretive about this as it was more of a “family outing around tanks. There’s always a vehicle or 2 I haven’t seen before at this type of events but I went to it for some peace and quiet away from the desk and games and wanted to be able to go a bit crazy/overboard as I was hanging out with not only a family group but also a second group full of crazy service and ex-service man that I’ve become friends with.

I arrived from it on late Monday night and spent Tuesday taking care of documentation (city council, bank, car, provisional license, etc etc) and to rest because I arrived knackered from partying, playing with kids, driving like lunatics in the arena and catching torrential rain.

A later version is called the VZ 71 (1971) and is the VZ 67s hull and the Panzer 68s turret (this version is likely to be the Tier 9’s stock configuration) and would be armed with a licence built RO L7 105 mm gun.
