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.
Wargaming have called the the new British Tier VIII TD Turtle NO that’s the American name it’s a British tank so it’s Tortoise.
Today, we have big news: the Turtle Mk. I, a British Tier VIII TD, is about to hit the Supertest.
It’s similar to the British assault tank line spearheaded by the FV217 Badger, both in appearance and stats. Its survivability reaches 1,400 HP, and the frontal armour is 228 mm thick, which is quite impressive. However, everything has its price. The Turtle Mk. I suffers from low mobility, like most vehicles of its line. With a top speed of 20 km/h, we recommend choosing your flank during the countdown and sticking to it until the end of the battle.
That said, the Turtle Mk. I has an ace up its sleeve: its gun. It reloads in 6.6 s with an average damage per shot of 330 points. So, its DPM reaches 3,000, one of the highest values in the entire game! The accuracy and aiming time are decent as well: 0.34 m at 100 m and 1,7 s, respectively. Dealing with enemy armour won’t be much of an issue: the standard shells (AP) penetrate 217 mm and the special rounds (APCR) 245 mm of effective armour. One more thing: the gun depression angle is -10° and the horizontal gun arc is 20° each to the left and the right.
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!
Apologies for the few day hiatus of content in the blog, both Jerry and I spend the last 4 days attending Tankfest! We got some amazing footage incoming for you including a very special birthday gift opportunity inside an even more very special tank!
And talking about birthdays, Yes! Today I am 21, again!
I do not ask much for my birthday other than this, I have created a Fundraiser over on Facebook to support my UK charity Association of choice, SSAFA, The Armed forces Charity! I am very glad that in just a few hours we met the small goal we set ourselves to! You can still donate to raise the stakes!
SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity has come highly recommended by the Veterans and families from our community that have received help from them when they needed. The Armed Forces charity is also one of the most senior and well respected Association in the UK! Definitely a good one to support!
Thank you, everyone, for everything!
A few weeks ago just before the 6 of June I attended The Overlord Show with The Friends of The Tank Museum and had a blast!
In this video, you can see a “StuG”, 10 points for whoever guesses what’s wrong with it! Got some Armoured Car porn and also footage of the only operational Valentine Duplex Drive tank in the world!
I had the pleasure to drive the Valentine DD last summer and it’s on my top list of favourite armour I ever drove!
Hope you enjoy!
