I'm guessing at some sort of Japanese Type 89, maybe a prototype, from the angle and style of the front armour.

Whatever it is, I do like the R2D2 / Star Wars soldier helmet cupola on top of the turret. Very advanced. :D

new question, am ready

Panzerknacker
10-27-2007, 06:04 PM
You do ?

Okay:

Hipotetical question :

Lets said that you are a Tiger I tank commander in the eastern front, 1944.
Suddenly you are attacked by a large formation of heavy JS-1 and JS-2 tanks. Knowing the capabilities of you main gun and without hollow charge or tugsten core ammo available you should....

A) Open fire when the ruskies are well over 2000 meters in range.

B) Better shot at Ivan at 1500 meters.

C) Wait until the JS reach the 1000 Meters

D) Hold you fire until the 800 meters.

E) Let get the hell out of there.

http://www.fprado.com/armorsite/Tiger1-2002-Picz/Tiger1-mobility.jpg

tankgeezer
10-27-2007, 07:13 PM
"E" is the best answer, although the number of JS is not stated, the typical platoon size was 3 tanks, so with a "large formation," one tiger might be facing a company (9 tanks) So, run like a bunny.

pdf27
10-28-2007, 04:50 AM
So, run like a bunny.
Depends on what's behind you. The Germans had a nasty habit towards the end of the war of executing any of their own troops found moving backwards without clear orders to do so.

Drake
10-28-2007, 05:46 AM
Pretty difficult to execute you, when you are in a tiger, though :D
The KWK 36 shouldn't be expected to penetrate the front of the IS on a range of more than 500 metres imho, so RUN LIKE A BUNNY.
If I may use the Jagdtiger with the KWK 43, 2-3 IS would go down on ranges beyond 1500 metres, before RUNNING LIKE A BUNNY

Librarian
10-28-2007, 08:13 AM
Excellent remarks, honorable Mr. Drake. However, we do not know the exact orientation of the frontal armor plates of our mighty opponents, and I suppose that we are positioned with firm intention to stop the advance of our opponents.

Therefore knowing ballistic capabilities of my KwK 36, as well as all those protective armor covering characteristics of my Soviet opponents, and bearing in mind the fact that I have only PzGr 39 in my ammunition storage, I think that variant D, "Hold you fire until the 800 meters" is the best solution in this case.

Of course, my driver will be obliged to change our static-firing position after the third shot of our main gun, and our colleagues will provide covering fire for us from their locations while we are executing our maneuvering.

Panzerknacker
10-28-2007, 10:23 AM
Clap. Clap clap (those are aplausses) Librarian could no be more correct.
Next question:Wich tank was named after a deceased party officer in the USSR ?

Drake
10-28-2007, 10:50 AM
Kliment Voroshilov 1?

pdf27
10-28-2007, 11:21 AM
Kliment Voroshilov 1?
Died December 1969, so probably not...

Best guess is the IS-10, brought out in 1952 and renamed the T-10 after Stalin's death in 1953. It's a bit of a weak guess though.

tankgeezer
10-28-2007, 11:38 AM
Depends on what's behind you. The Germans had a nasty habit towards the end of the war of executing any of their own troops found moving backwards without clear orders to do so.
Not to hijack this quiz but, since I am being attacked, by a far superior force(in numbers) they know my situation, and I dont know their's. if there is sufficient space between us yet, it is appropriate to leave the scene, and maneuver to take away their advantage. Then, it may be possible to attack them,from a good position, and attrit their numbers a couple at a time, till they disengage, or I can call for assistance (if there is any available.) The scenario didnt hint of any other tanks with me.

Librarian
10-29-2007, 04:30 AM
Wich tank was named after a deceased party officer in the USSR ?

I think that aforesaid vehicle is so called Heavy land-cruiser Tank - SMK, named after [b]Sergei Mironovich Kirov (Серге́й Миро́нович Ки́ров)]/b], Soviet leader who played a prominent role in the 1918–20 civil war. A member of the Communist party Politburo from 1930, he was secretary of the party at Leningrad when he was assassinated, probably by Stalin's order. However, Stalin used Kirov's murder to institute the internal "party purge" and the treason trials of the late 1930s.

Indeed excellent story about this extraordinary vehicle is located here:

http://armor.kiev.ua/Tanks/BeforeWWII/SMK/

Panzerknacker
10-29-2007, 08:56 AM
Hehe, very good it was the SMK indeed.

Next, which type of antiarmor weapon is this ?

BTW: Are those personalities, presented on that old photo, members of the Guardia Civil?

Indeed, that ridiculous hat is like noything else in the world. :D
Those are Mauser T-Gewehrs captured by the Guardia Civil (spanish civilian police) in 1934.

Your point number 4 if I am not wrong.

The photo is bad from the source too.

11-01-2007, 07:51 PM
But it looks like the turret of something with a rather small gun, maybe an early Panzer III

RifleMan20
11-01-2007, 07:57 PM
My guess, by the look of the interior, even though am talking out of my butt, i would have to say a Jagdpanther, dont know but i think this is it

Panzerknacker
12-25-2007, 03:53 PM
Very good, there is a mistake in the stenciled name in the shell, it should said "7,5 cm K.w.K 40".

Drake
12-25-2007, 05:48 PM
Guess it depends where he resupplied :D

And yes, my dear Herr Major – that is the correct answer: M3A3 equipped with the 2cm Flakvierling 38, snapshoted in 1944 as a specialized component of the 1st Tank Brigade of the Yugoslav Army. Only four previously heavily damaged M3s (those with a completely devastated turret) were converted in this manner.

its a 'toy' tank made by spanish during revolution era,.. isnt it that correct sir?

Between 1936 and 1937 the light tank Euzkadi is constructed , like a lightened version of the Trubia on a chassis of Landesa tractor, weighed 4.5 tons with a crew of three to four men; its armament consistia in two Russian machine guns DT of 7,62mm or two Lewis 7mm.

http://www.panzerbaer.de/types/pix/us_trv_m51_viet-001.jpg I dont have any numbers or models for you, but that is no A.P.C. the running gear is all Tank. this is some type of recovery vehicle, or combat engineer vehicle. Ah! just noticed some one came up with the model. But just for sake of knowing, all U.S. and many foreign A.P.C.s have the drive sprockets in the front. Most also use a narrow "dead" track, (like soviet armor) The pictured vehicle has a "live" track, that is to say a track that runs back over return rollers(small wheels across the top run of the track) and the track is adjusted tightly and does not droop as does the Christy style (soviet) of track suspension.

Alrighty, since you ask, here is an interesting machine, not often seen, and not a real toughy to identify.

Churchill
05-21-2008, 03:20 PM
Yay! I got here first.

This tank is an easy one: it's the M50 'Ontos' Tank Destroyer. The 'Thing', as it was called, had 6 106mm recoilless rifles. Its armour was 13mm thick, not enough for a supposed tank destroyer. It saw action in Hue, in Viet Nam, and in the Dominican Republic. The only bad thing about it was that the crew had to get outside the vehicle to reload it, and the backblast gave away your location.

tankgeezer
05-21-2008, 05:41 PM
CORRECTUMUNDO!! I figured this wouldnt be to tough, its not the usual thing one see in museums and such, but it is distinctive. Not the best idea, but not bad for jungle use, light, maneuverable, not bad firepower, though inconvenient. Cant say that I would want to face down a real tank with it, unless i could ambush, then di-di right quick.

Churchill
05-21-2008, 06:16 PM

05-24-2008, 10:14 PM
The concrete was poured into molds made of wood planks, and the space between the planks, and even the wood grain will show in the surface of the cement, so its not unusual for it to appear as wood.(very observant)

malarz_russ@hotmail.com
05-24-2008, 10:16 PM
Hello, everyone!

Looks like Walters got it... tho' I've not heard them refered to as anything other than just "plain" Bison.

Britain used various redundant civilian heavy trucks (from out of work haulage companies) and created "reasonably" mobile pillboxes by stripping off everything on the chassis, erecting a wooden form, dropping in panels of expanded metal and filling it concrete. All but the earliest vehicles retained the inner wooden form to act as an antispall layer.

Two general types: the earlier "Blockhouse" had a connected cab and box, while the later "Pillbox" had seperate cab and box. Entry was typically thru the top, which was closed off with a tarp. Armament was whatever the crew, usually Home Guard, had at hand.

Desperate times lead to desperate solutions and this was one of the more common.

This is a japanese Type 98 Mini Engineer Vehicle "Ya-I Go", also known under the not correct designation "Type 97 Mini Engineer Vehicle Yi-Go".

It was a remote-controlled explosive carrier built for demolition of enemy bunkers using a large explosive charge or for destroying wire obstacles using a bangalore-type charge. Some 300 were built from 1938 on.
