Great video, I love this channel it covers some great history of tank warfare whilst combining tanks of all tiers and nations. I love how you put your videos together!
Mk1 Matilda. Harry Hopkins. Swedish S Tank (though modelling the suspension might be problematic.
So, I noticed a few errors in this video that I wanted to point out. ——- Firstly, SPG does not mean artillery in every circumstance. The SU-100, M10 Wolverine (officially “3-inch Gun Motor Carriage, M10”), the Marder series, and many others are self propelled guns. Those vehicles are obviously not artillery in the World of Tanks sense, but they *are* SPGs which only means they are motorized vehicles that carry guns, and are not meant to be used on the front lines. SPG can mean an indirect fire vehicle or a direct fire vehicle, not necessarily one or the other. ——- Secondly, the BT-7 artillery was never meant as an SPG nor artillery. The reason it is named “Artillery” is because it mounted a 76mm artillery gun into a direct fire turret. It was meant as a short-range, direct-fire infantry support vehicle for use against fixed positions such as bunkers or MG nests. Also, the standard BT-7 *was* originally designed to be able to mount a 76mm or a 45mm in the same turret. However, the factory in charge of producing the tank determined that a turret that could mount either gun would be too expensive and complicated to produce compared to turrets that were currently available, so the first BT-7s were built using BT-5 turrets. The turret that could mount both guns was never even put into production to my knowledge. —– I don’t mean to hate or anything like that, I just wanted to ensure that this misinformation would be stopped before it could spread. (edit: sorry for the messy text wall, but YouTube won’t let me keep my neat paragraph spaces)
1. The turret was the whole point of mounting the 76mm. So by giving the BT-5 the BT-7A turret and gun, you eliminate the point of using the BT-7A as an extra artillery piece. I don’t think the proposal will fly with WG 2. 6 pounder? AFAIK pilot #2 in Bovington was built to the same specs as pilot #1, which meant the 75mm M3. However even then, the 6 pounder is thinking waaaaaaaay too small. The T14 project entertained several armament proposals, from the 105mm howitzer to the 17 pounder gun and the 90mm AA cannon. 3. I don’t see the point, but there’s nothing opposing it from a data standpoint AFAIK. 4. The Tetrarch is undoubtedly part of proposals for a dedicated scout line 5. You don’t want a premium tank version of this at tier 7, unless you’re being willfully ignorant of how WG translates historical data into premium tanks.
Here is an idea and tier 9 and 10 British tanks that do not suck (never mind that at the time Centurion was superior to anything) give is Vickers MBT and Vijayanta.
Good video Irish. I like all of your ideas and suggestions, the turreted SU-100y sounded pretty interesting, as well as bringing back the “Awesome/Awful Panther” :)
The British Tetrarch could be given the top gun from the Matilda and bumped a tier as it did have the Littlejohn adapter: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Littlejohn_adaptor
Europe needs it’s own line of tanks. Many nations had decent tanks at the start of the war. USA Ontos…. 6 quick shots like a Chi-ri….re-load between Bulldog autoloader and Arty. It works.
YES GIVE US THE AWFUL PANTHER PLS
Can you imagine how good the T14 would have been (at least in game) if it had been fitted with a 17lb main gun?
How about the M-60? In-game, it was given as a reward tank. In reality, it was one of the premier tanks of the Cold War, with over 15,000 copies having been built.
Very good ideas indeed. Another alternative. They could always work on that Italian line.
why are people asking wargaming to listen? they havent listened for 4 years so are they likely to start now? stop playing WOT, hit them in the pocket and then they will listen
Interesting series, I like it! I hope Wargaming is listening!
Wargaming, please listen to osirish
