It came to my attention that some of the text about Excalibur was misunderstood by readers at WG. I would like to clarify that in no shape or form has Ed Francis leaked any information about the Excalibur nor the pictures leaked have any connection with him.
We did give him the credit for finding the vehicle. There is nothing wrong with that and we feel there is also nothing wrong with us pointing out the major discrepancies between the historical data, which any member of the public can access at the National Archives (if they know where to look) and comparing it against the tank statistics in the Supertest leaks.
He was mentioned as a friend of the blog. Ed is a friend because he was the person who got me into tank driving and because he gave me the connections in the private tank ownership world. The tank I bought in real life, restored and then sold to help paying for my University tuition? That wouldn’t have happened if wasn’t for him. That’s why he is a friend, we keep the gaming side separated.
Even the leakers know very well and would testify if they could, that at RSR we give the utmost respect in protecting the privacy of anyone who wishes to leak information. We would never be that careless and we never will be.
