If you liked my Saumur Panther video you gonna love this! During my visit to Musée des Blindés in Saumur, France I was offered the opportunity to -the first- showcase of their next restoration project, a rare Sherman DD!
Sherman DDs are not tanks you see every day but this vehicle, in particular, is even rarer as it was fabricated by the US, definitely a piece of history worth to preserve!
For now, this is all the information on the restoration I can give you but I will keep you updated as soon more comes!
If you are not aware of the IDP Film channel do check it out! They have a really good collection of Drone footage of tanks (which I have on occasions shared on the blog) among much other militaria!
Definitely worth taking a peek!
here’s the official trailer of the upcoming WG new title, Caliber:
Caliber is a 4vs4 PVP/PVE military shooter where you will be able to pick different roles such as healer and it will be free to play.
The game is also expected to be fully announced this year at Gamescon.
Personally speaking, I am rather excited to try a new shooter, I had quite a lot of fun with PUGB until they started suing people over frying pans instead creating fixes for the game and Fortnite and Apex quickly bored me out so it will be nice to see what Caliber brings to the table.
Hope everyone is doing marvellous today!
I just made public my newest tank video where I got the pleasure to be given a private tour inside of one of this year’s Tankfest biggest attractions, Saumur‘s Panther!
It felt fitting to publish this today as I am going to be in France by the end of the day, I will be attending this weekend the Carrousel de Saumur event at their invitation and will be getting as much tank footage for you as possible even although I am rather interested in seeing the French uniforms in person!
I might add, this is also my first time in France so if you have any suggestions for food do let me know! 😀
Thank you for being part of why this is possible!
Will be posting more of these in the future:
French destroyer Siroco, tier V:
Detectability range by air is lowered from 3.36 km to 2.7 km;
Main Battery Reload Booster and Engine Boost consumables are changed place. Now, Siroco’s consumables are arranged in the same order as the researchable French destroyers.
French destroyer Vauquelin, tier VII:
Detectability range by air is reduced from 4.38 to 3.51 km.
French destroyer Kleber, tier X:
Detectability after firing main guns in smoke is increased from 3.3 to 3.63 km.
Detectability ranges by sea, and after firing main caliber guns in smoke, for French destroyers is corrected considering the basic detection range from sea.
French cruiser Colbert, tier X:
Detectability range by air is increased from 6.0 to 7.41 km.
Soviet cruiser Smolensk, tier X:
Detectability range by air is increased from 5.64 to 7.41 km
When using skills and upgrades for lowering detection range, the AA gun range of Colbert and Smolensk was larger than the detection range by air. This allowed these cruisers to turn the AA off and activate it when enemy planes are already inside the AA zone. The changes will remedy this situation.
Statistics prone to change.
here’re the stats and pics of the upcoming LHMTV, a Tier VIII British Light Tank:
As scheduled for post Tankfest, Our Shrivenham Defense Academy videos are now starting to come out!
This is one of my favourite armoured vehicle places in the whole UK!
My best mate Ed Francis and I visited the Shrivenham Defense Academy and in this video, we discuss how the AS-90 Self-propelled Artillery came to be as a result of the SP70 failed project.
A special thanks to SDA for having us!
Hope you enjoy!
