Driving the only Operational Valentine DD in the world!

Greetings!
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! ๐Ÿ˜Š

 

RARE Sherman DD Restoration! First-Ever Peek!

2

Greetings!

If you liked my Saumur Panther video you gonna love this! During my visit to Musรฉe des Blindรฉs 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!

WG’s Military Shooter: Caliber

9

Greetings,

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.

WoT Supertest: The Tortoise MkI

15

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.

post-502699962-0-47136100-1564734299

Today, we have big news: the Turtle Mk. I, a British Tier VIII TD, is about to hit the Supertest.

Itโ€™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 wonโ€™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 -10ยฐ and the horizontal gun arc is 20ยฐ each to the left and the right.

The screnshots.
