Absolutely my favourite. It's just so unique. World of Tanks is one thing to blame for this
can go literally anywhere and destroy.
Nice choice, though it's not a tank, but self-propelled anti-tank gun, or a tank-killer, if you like.
for me it's webm related
When people 70 years after the war still think your tank was the scarest shit ever, it's the best proof that you built one intimidating-looking machine
>Technically the Jagdpanther was not a tank as such, rather it was a mobile gun and tank destroyer.
No one gives a shit. We are talking about looks not specs.
>not posting glorious Soviet tanks
wtf is wrong with you faggots
Did you ever seen that polandball?
My favourite tank is the Yamato.
I wonder if people will some day make a historically accurate tank movie.
Because that movie was shit. Particularly that scene. The museum tried to warn them, but they wouldn't listen.
Jagdpanther is where it's at, but the Hetzer is adorable! Sneaky compact tank destroyer.
That is 130mm naval cannon bois
60 calibers long
Different design and different use. Biggest difference is that tank destroyers are purely defensive weapon. You drive them into already taken ground, and wait for enemy counter-attack.
OP's favorite tank
Merkava is a nice looking tank
It's epitome of improvisation: how to mass produce medium tanks, without factory cappable of producing medium tanks.
In that regard, lengths designers went to make it happen are nothing short of amazing.
Not really so long as it has good sonar and depth charge dropping aircraft. So long as the crew has enough food and the reactor has enough uranium, it's pretty self sufficient in that it can create its own jet fuel. It can engage virtually any target at range with its aircraft.
It's better that irl in WoT
It kinda worked in the desert but in russia it would sink in a marsh, go nowhere on the mud, main gun breech would freeze in winter and could not stop any german AT weapons while being tall as a house
Come on guys, we all know that only a 38cm Sturmmörser removes enemies effectively
>Americans use M1s
>kill thousands of tanks and IFVs losing like a dozen, nearly all either disabled by mines or hit mistakenly by friendlies.
>Americans give M1s to Arabs
>the get routed by T-55s and haijis with RPGs, and bunch of them even gets roasted by 40 years old ATGMs
back in these days there where no IS. todays slamic state fighters are far more specialized. they use top notch atgm like tow.
tis is why there are no foreign boots on the ground.
>Why is there a penis on it
Get cancer and die
Because OP is a faggot. Try to keep up, newfag.
Well, it clearly states it's an Australian tank...
Japanese GUNDAM tank desu !!
##The hydropneumatic suspension units are mounted on the front and rear pair of road wheels, which can be adjusted on-the-fly to deal with uneven terrain, a requirement on Japan's rough, mountainous terrain.
from a salty Sailor,
Carriers need weekly resupply drops, including fuel. It cannot create jet fuel. its fairly well protected from surface and airborne attack, but lacks heavily at subsurface. depth charges aren't even a thing anymore.
good thread so far, saved a lot of reference pics
armor so thick, using them feels like cheating
>"Comrades, it's an ambush!"
Those french oscillating turret tanks are mighty handsome
Too bad they were shit
i guess this is the only one not posted
>nobody cares that it isn't a tank. We are just looking at specs
Fine....this is my favorite tank
And Leclerc is ugly as sin, but at least its good
It's like French cannot design both good looking and well, simply good working tanks
wtf....it has the iron cross?
I thought Nazi symbols weren't allowed after WWII
fun fact: these sub'd for shermans in one of my favourite films, The Bridge At Remagen
no idea why they couldn't get sherms, it's an old film
rusted. but still alive ^!

I'm a fan of the stryker and its what, 12 different armament variations?
Also a fan of the bradley. That bitch was the backbone of my army in World in Conflict
>IDF tankers spot Egyptian tanks
>they roll out M48s, and load HEAT

>shell doesn't detonate

>decide to come close and use HVAP
>at 1500m they don't work
>at 1000m they don't work
>at 500m they don't work
>they pass IS-3 at full speed and destroy them with flank and rear shots
>result: 7 IS-3s for 5 M48s
IS-3 was unreliable piece of shit, but that armor was nothing short of amazing.
<--- tank according to the moronic public/media
This. Hetzers gonna Hetz my friend.
My friend, Iowa.
>inb4 "muh 46 km"
Japan had better have their armament production capacities ready to fire up at a moments notice, cause China's got big plans, and USA can't do shit to protect Japan from them anymore.
I wonder what Japan would build if they had to militarize tomorrow.
Giant fucking robot army, I'm sure.
dont read this cuz it actually works
You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However, if you do not post this in at least 3 threads you will die in 2 days. Now that you're reading this, don't stop. This is so scary. Put this in at least 5 threads in 143 minutes, and when you're done press F6 and your lover's name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is so scary, it actually works.
>Civilian police trying to pretend they're military and every member of the public is their enemy combatant.
If the local police showed up in my town driving around in that kind of shit, basically declaring martial law and open season on the public, I would make destroying that shit my lifelong ambition. It'd be a fun challenge, to design a trap using industrial equipment to capture and dismantle that thing. If they want to make a game out of life and death, they're going to find people willing to play.
>classified as a tank
eat assburger and die, autist
OC my tank from the army circa 2011
Reminder that every single tank is wonderful
is that thing gonna be real or what
I kind of want to see russia sell everyone those fuckin T90s, and then quietly build itself an army of sci-fi looking nightmare weapons that it doesn't export. I mean, somebody do something interesting already.
A fan of the Heavy cruisers myself Takao class to be specific. Something about the design just sits right with me
HA heres a nother
>israeli master race
yeah we know you fucking dipshits think you're the master race.
yet without the US propping your asses up, you'd be nothing but a memory.
...a US that grows increasingly weary of the arrangement, since the full costs of it are starting to be realized.
Enjoy your desert party... while it lasts.
It's because of the 6 gorrilion
M4 was excelent all-around vehicle, highly reliable jack-of-all-trades tank
M26 was failed attempt to make stronger tank, while doing as little job at it as possible.
M46 was M26 with proper engine.
M47 featured improved armor (about time), but was horrible fuel gruzler, making King Tiger look eco-friendly.
M48 was finally armored on pair with Soviet tanks. Attricious fuel effeciency remined.
M103 was M48 with more armor and bigger gun. And same engine.
M60 was perfectly on pair with T-62, while firing faster, and carrying more ammo. All mobility problems were solved, and later M48s and M103s were upgraded in similar maner.
And then fucking nothing up to XM-1, because congress would not pay for tank that wasn't revolutionary and without technical issues.
In meanwile Soviets rushed new models every 5 years, and fixing their issues when they were already in frontline units.
Fucking Bob Semple tank. It's literally a nig rig tank. Awesome.
Super Pershing. Basically Pershing with add-on armor and different gun, using separate charges.
It was failed design. Extra weight given by more armor caused even more issues with engine and suspension, and gun was much slower to fire, while increased powder charge improved shell penetration only by about 10%
T28 pretty damn useless. But BIG!
yah they are
though we keep having to send them billions in military aid and then spend billions more and thousands of our own lives getting ensnared in the war their pot-stirring keeps agitating in the region. All this shit about every politician saying israel is our greatest ally, wtf, pretty sure the Britbongs are better allies in every regard. Japan... Canada even... none of our other alliances cause the security risk our "alliance" or charity arrangment, with Israel does. And what do we get from Israel? A big "fuck you, we're the master race".
funny part is that Jews started settling in Palestine about same time as Arabs. Before British took control of it, it was barely populated.
Main reason why British gave up on Palestine, was because they were fed up with keeping them from each other's throats for last 50 years.
But somehow meme persists saying that Jews came to Palestine only after WW2.

heavy armor: check
fighting vehicle: check
carries guns: check
metal track: check
Iowa is great. Here is Iowa taking a pounding.
>stripped of their advanced electronics and armor
no, those are baseline M1A1 produced in 80's, refubrished to zero-hour condition, and fitted with different comms.
Probably even same tanks that kicked their teeth in, in 1991
Somehow meme persists that "muh ancestors was ere first" "no mines was" between two entirely shit peoples is an argument worth the rest of the world going all in on with cash and lives and resources.
Looking at your behavior, in the contest of who the shittier people are, you're both winners. Congrats.
Better be bait
(If not, Iron Cross != Nazi Symbol. Iron Cross is much (MUCH!) older.)
i have no idea about tank combat, whats wrong with that scene ?
Didin't watch the movie, but I can name few things from clip alone:
Whole idea of charging Tiger. They had 76mm, they could kill it from 1km frontally.
Tiger advancing while shooting, when it should (and would) turn 30 degree to side and pick retardely exposed Shermans one by one with dead-on accurate fire.
Tiger even allowing Shermans that close in the first place. It could kill Sherman at any range it could hit. Why would it wait till they were close?
Also Tigers never fight alone. They show up rarely, but when they do, it's entire company with 2 more companies somewhere nearby.
Also, was that explained why 76mm Sherman was mixed with 75mm Shermans?
