I and the running Panther of the Musee des Blindes in Saumur (that if you remember was the poster boy for this year’s Tankfest), will be participating in the NUTS weekend of the Bastogne Barracks War Heritage Institute.
On 14 and 15 of December, the Panther will join the Sherman Jumbo ‘First in Bastogne’ and other vehicles from our collection in a number of dynamic demonstrations at the Vehicle Restoration Center – War Heritage Institute / Bastogne.
The Panther will also feature in the official ceremony on Monday 16 December at the Mardasson Monument, together with our Sherman Jumbo as a symbol of reconciliation.
This will be the Sherman Jumbo’s first-ever attendance and is currently receiving the last restoration touches for the NUTS event. I got to see it 2 months ago when I visited the Bastogne Barracks and its condition is impeccable!
Currently editing footage from my trip to Belgium!
Earlier this summer I got to see at the Victory show the only, as far as we know, M3 lee in the UK and I am very happy to tell you that is finally fully restored and on the move!
Here’s the latest video of the Armourgeddon’s team that did an amazing job getting it restored!
I’ve returned from a 2-week tank trip to Belgium following Peiper’s tracks, pun intended, and from the Liberation Column together with the War Heritage Institute.
It was my first time properly visiting Belgium and I had a lot of fun and I have quite a lot of some very interesting content coming up for you!
On the meanwhile, I uploaded this video while I was there, don’t think I shared it here:
One of my favourite experiences from this summer! 😊
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!

Currently editing the next tank video!
A bit delayed with the next one as I have been away recording some amazing Tank Footage on a remote field which I so cant wait to show you! On the Meanwhile, the IDP Film Twins caught me this weekend at Tank Trucks and Firepower and I agreed to do an interview for them!
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!

TheMightyJingles and I were invited to the Norfolk Tank Museum for a ride on the Saladin, if you would like a ride too, on the 10/11 of August the museum will be running its biggest annual event where you can too!
Hope you enjoy!
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:
French destroyer Kleber, tier X:
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:
Soviet cruiser Smolensk, tier X:
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.
