I've been there, but I have all the models there or they cost too much or shipping is too much(I actually live in Texas, Houston to be closer).

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.

Well, it seems to me that we are looking at the members of the WW II reenactment group Corps Franc-Wallonien with their lovely Czech-built Tatra OT-810 halftrack, slightly changed to resemble an Sd.Kfz.251, photographed in Poland, May 2007, vicinity of Sanok-Błoni.

Please, just go after this link:

Oh, thank you for your amicable compliment, my dear Herr Major. For that reason, allow me to introduce another tiny identification assignment for you and our distinguished Forum members. Are you acquainted with this machine?

Major Walter Schmidt
07-04-2008, 06:23 PM
Is it the Japanese typ. 1 SP gun Ho-Ni II?

Major Walter Schmidt
07-04-2008, 06:31 PM
Or is it the Su-76M?
the bolts remind me of Japan or Italy though. Czech maybe.

07-05-2008, 11:26 AM
Hiya, Librarian, and others!

It's a Soviet Su-14BR-2 assault gun mounting a 152mm B10 naval gun on a T-28 chassis. The single prototype was used in the defence of Moscow and currently is in Kubinka,

And now we are waiting for your next mission of armored vehicles taxonomy! :)

Hello, y'all!

07-06-2008, 10:41 PM
Hiya, Librarian!

Darn, you are GOOD!

My reference actually listed it as a T16, but the Marmon Harringtons differed only in minor ways (which side the turret was on). Close enough for government work!

I salute you and await your offering!

07-07-2008, 04:06 PM
Oh, thank you very much, my dear Mr. Malarz Russ. In the very same time I have to declare that you have taken our class honours as well. My sincerest congratulations and best wishes for many years of joy and prosperity. :D

And now we have here with us another armored guest star. Do you recognize this piece of heavy equipment?

Major Walter Schmidt
07-07-2008, 06:43 PM
:confused:It looks Geman..
the chassis looks kinda like a Panzer IV.
top looks a bit czech. and the slanted amour dosnt look German.

Major Walter Schmidt
07-07-2008, 06:51 PM
is it the
Panzer IV with 2 x 75mm rifles and 20/30mm target gun ?

07-08-2008, 05:15 AM
Hiya, Librarian, and others!

Here's a guess...

a Swedish Strv 42?

I was originally thinking something Hungarian due to the running gear (Nimrod), but lot of the early Hungarian armor was licensed Swedish designs.

Strv 42 was a lengthened Strv 41, but I can't find a decent photo online showing more than a close resemblance.

Yes, my dear Mr. Malarz Russ – our guest undeniably was the Stridsvagn m/42, an unduly forgotten, highly usable Swedish tank equipped with a 75mm cannon, 3 MGs, torsion bar suspension, and protected with up to 80mm thick frontal armor. Your turn again! :)

07-09-2008, 04:43 AM
Hello, Librarian, Major Schmidt, and all!

This should be an easy one...

It is a T-6

07-09-2008, 02:09 PM

Partially correct, my dear Herr Major – as a matter of fact presented vehicle is so called Super Churchill, or the Black Prince (A 43 prototype, with a 17pounder as the main gun). Here you have the photo:

It's pretty fun though!

07-13-2008, 06:47 PM
Well… in that case here is another easy one for you, my dear Mr. Panther F. I do hope that you are wide-awake! :)

Panther F
07-13-2008, 08:27 PM
Errr, ummm ... wide awake but I'm more of a treadhead to be exact. I know of a few armored cars but very limited in that field. Thanks for trying. :shock:

07-14-2008, 12:38 AM
Hiya, Librarian, and y'all!

Okay, Panther F... I'll keep that in mind next chance I get to offer a puzzler:D

As to the wheeled beasty, it's a South African Heavy Armoured Car Mk V / Reconnaissance Car Mark VI. Sorry, my reference doesn't really give a clue to the difference between the two, so I couldn't really narrow it down.

See: http://mailer.fsu.edu/~akirk/tanks/safrica/SouthAfrica.html About half way down the page.

Good night and have a great week all!

marmon-herrington Mk VI
an 8-wheeled design inspired by the German 8-wheeled armoured cars (Schwerer Panzerspähwagen). Two prototypes were built, one with a 2 pounder and other with a 6 pounder gun in an open-topped three-man turret with electric powered traverse and protected by 10 to 30 mm of sloped armor. Additional armament consisted of 2 or 3 machine guns.

Your answer is more than sufficient, my dear Mr. Malarz Russ – yes, our special guest star was South African Reconnaissance Car Mk VI, manufactured By South African Railway. Your turn again! And please do remember that our competitors here are yearning for something … really special. :D

07-14-2008, 06:28 PM

07-16-2008, 07:13 PM

07-17-2008, 06:38 PM
Hiya, y'all!

Panther F has got it! It's an Argentinian designed and built Nahuel (Tiger) tank, inspired by the US M4 Sherman. Ironically, after 16 of these were built, they were replaced by surplused Shermans.

That took a whole 4 hours and 8 minutes for someone to solve... think I'm gonna hafta' come up with some new sources!

Geschützwagen IVb für 10.5 cm le.F.H.1811 (Sf.) (Sd.Kfz.1651/1)

BINGO!! You are correct gumalangi! In an effort to come up with a self-propelled vehicle armed with the 10.5cm leFH 18/1, Krupp put forward a design that involved using a shortened Pzkpw IV chassis as the foundation. This chassis utilized only 3 road wheel pairs as opposed to the standard 4 and the resulting vehicle was given the label of leFH 18/1 (Sf)/Geschutzwagen IVb Sdkfz 165/1. Weighing in at 17 tons, the gun could traverse through 70 degrees in the open-topped turret. The vehicle’s armor ranged from 14.5mm to 20mm and was designed to accommodate a 5-man crew. Only 8 prototypes were completed Aug-Dec 1942 and were field tested with the 16th Panzer Division in Russia. The design was ultimately rejected in favor of the simpler and easier to produce Wespe and the vehicle never entered full production.

You're next. :D

I sometimes read it was helpful to tie a rope around its legs. Made them tumble...

Major Walter Schmidt
07-21-2008, 06:18 PM
Yeah. it also had no MGs under- a major design flaw which lead to the B type which had a better engine and MGs under. there were also submarine versions for sealion (Tauchwanderer) but was used as river-crossing troop carriers. a total of about 10 were produced. (some say 15 but Albert Speer's "on the rd Reich" indicates 10) (3 in Normandy, 5 tauchwandrers, and the rest was usedon the eastern font except for one which surrenderd near Eagle's nest. 3 survive today. One in Kubinka, another in the Patton museum, and the last in the Munster museum in Germany


The US reply was a Bipedal Walker gun platform desgnated BWGP-I of wich 5 were producd. Its problem was with the legs whih were thinly armoured because of reasons to do with weight. A HE round could easily blow it of making i easy prey for AT guns. Field prototypes were all destoyed in Normandy. 1 prototype remains in the Smithsonian Garber facility.

Bravo, my dear Mr. Sergej! Your second suggestion represents the proper identification – our mysterious vehicle really is a prototype of the Amphibious tank T 43 (Плавающий танк Т 43), produced by the Moscow State Factory No. 37.

BTW – I’m really glad that we both are the participants and the viewers of the legendary Russian web-forum http://talks.guns.ru. Welcome, my dear Sir! It seems to me that we will have some highly enticing moments here as well. :)

And yes – I think that I have a proper solution for that highly intriguing identification task of yours in our Russian thread. You know… that "Diminutive T 34". I have to admit that I have really enjoyed that task a lot lately, and I think that it will definately encourage our members as well! ;)

And now – please proceed. It’s your turn now!

Librarian
07-26-2008, 06:57 PM
No, this task was not a difficult one, my dear Mr. Sergej: our mysterious vehicle is T-29. This experimental model never came into production, and the project stopped when his designer, Mikhail Ilyich Koshkin, was called to Kiev in 1937 to develop a new tank - the famous T-34. :)

Sergej

No question you are completly right. It's your turn Librarian.

Thank you, my dear Mr. Sergej. And now another armored mystery is here with us. Do you recognize this type, honorable ladies and gentlemen?

Sergej
07-28-2008, 08:13 AM
I think it is a Ford/Thompson armoured car build in 41/42

Librarian
07-28-2008, 08:55 AM
Indeed, my dear Mr. Sergej – our mysterious celebrity was the Ford Mk VI Armoured Car, built in Ireland in 1942 by Thomas Thompson & Son Co. of Carlow on a 122-inch Ford lorry chassis, which was equipped by 3.6 liter Ford V8 85 HP petrol engine, and additional, original MG turret modelled upon the Landsverk's L-180.

Essentially, these vehicles were standard 4x2 Ford truck chassis based armored lorries, equipped with the Thompson lightly armoured body. They had faithfully and vigorously served within the Irish Defence Forces until 1964, being in action during the Operation "Sarafield", performed by the Irish Army in the Congo as component of the multinational United Nations peacekeeping forces in that country.

Strange that a vehicle like this - I am talking about the WW1 look here - is built in 1942, an aera where engineers already planned tanks like Tiger, Panther, Josef Stalin-2 or M36 Jackson.

And the answer is: Autoblinda Lince - nearly exact copy of the British Daimler Dingo scout car. It was produced by Lancia after the Italo-Allied armistice and used by the RSI.

Excellent, my dear Mr. Sergej – perhaps this one will be suitable even for your truly amazing personal collection of armored rarities.;)

Sergej
08-01-2008, 05:25 AM
The running gear looks like some British light tank Mk. I - Mk. III.
The concept is something like Stuart Recce, or Canadian Kangaroo.
In other words, I have no idea.:mrgreen:

Librarian
08-01-2008, 06:50 AM
Indeed excellent example of analytic thinking, my dear Mr. Sergej! Yes, you are on the right track – aforepresented vehicle indeed had been projected as a universal armored chassis, suitable for different roles of combat transportation, as well as for explicit battle missions in a role of the infantry-supporting vehicle.

However, our vehicle is not connected with the shining armored heritage of the British Commonwealth. ;)

But you have to work with it.
1. You know it is a SPG or something like that
2. Look at the gun. In comparing with the head of

3. Google this and look for something simular.

By the looks it's a 72mm but I can't be positive, What is it? Never mind it , now that I look hard at it That can't even pass as a main gun. maybe a HMG or a LMG. but nothing more. But the idea was not a bad one. just wrong way they built it. Very good I idea.

Just use that already prescribed method, previously tacitly explained by honorable Mr. Sergej: try to analyze certain "standardized" areas of a given machine - tracks, suspension, armored plates, or those presented uniforms, etc. Those diminutive signs actually are extremely useful in our greatly demanding identification job. ;)

BTW – do you remember that charming little "turtle like" SP AT gun previously presented by Mr. Sergej in his post No. 415? You know – that one with a nice, "streamlined", well sloped armor?

No, my dear Mr. Prime Minister – our vehicle has its own, full, completely regular and accurate designation. :)

This tank is made in the late 20's - early 30's,
it's simular to Neubaufahrzeug and the British
Independent tank. Late T-35's had this kind of
suspension, with 4x2 wheelpairs, but this one
looks a bit smaller.
I think we need some help.:roll:

What can I say, my dear Mr. Sergej – your analytical capabilities are truly admirable! My sincerest congratulations! :)

And here you have another tip: this machine is neither British, nor German.

Churchill

Well, you said it was a continental tank, so that rules out the UK and Ireland, and you just said it wasn't German, so that leaves what? The rest of Europe. :neutral:

Librarian

Well, not exactly, my dear Mr. Prime Minister – you see, our distinguished colleague, Mr. Sergej, indeed was very courteous in his previously presented analysis, and my answer is directly connected with his highly enlightening statements.

Therefore please, take a closer look once again – I am assuring you that a true revelation is already there! :)

Yet again it will be your well deserved turn!;)

I will continue with tracked turretless vehicles.

Hiya, SergeJ, and all!

Your latest selection is the GaZ-76d, also known as the Su-80, a diesel powered (hence the "d") tank destroyer / assault gun armed with a 76mm gun. A pretty decent looking vehicle...

Hi Malarz Russ!

You are right, SU-80 was planed as the soviet answer to the Hetzer.
But it never reach production, and later types like the well-known
SU-85 and SU-100 were developed.

Your turn again!

Hello, Churchill!

Don't swear... it isn't nice:rolleyes:! If you did see this critter, you didn't see it in the Tanks and Armor quiz, I just checked:o!

I found this in the net

I don't know is it real. This is Googletranslation from Swedish:
T-34 airborne tank was an attempt to obtain a 1945 wagon that could be transported by air.
T-34 was based in part on T-34 medium with three wheels on each side that made the wagon
very bad terrängegenskaper(crosscountry?) why there was no production of the vehicle.
Does anybody has any infos?
There we go... I found where it was. No info though...

Hello, y'all!

Here is the direct link:

I'm pretty sure this is what Sergej found.

Both Semper Fi (first) and Panther F (second) said T-34; SergeJ actually found a link. I'm perfectly willing to give it to all of you provided you come up with something really good in return!

08-28-2008, 08:35 PM
Heya, ChurchilL!

That was a mighty good one... I know but won't say what it is because I'm being lazy and want someone else to get it!

Vickers Light Tank Mark IA (A4E10).

Yup. This one was used in Poland.

@ Malarz: Do what you wish...

Hiya, SergeJ, and all!

You picked a fairly good looking vehicle, as far as armored vehicles go! I'll give a few hints to our fellow armor advocates:

1. It's a final development of a long line of armored vehicles.
2. It was nicknamed "turtle" due to it's sloping armor.
3. The original design was developed by a car builder who was more sucessful at designing armored vehicles than cars.
4. His armored vehicles were a flop in his native country.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and a Happy Labor Day to those of us in the US of A!

Librarian, a little help? :)

Sergej
09-06-2008, 02:56 PM
A big help: This tank was armed with a M1932/34 45mm gun.
BTW: Malarz Russ would you check the aircraft quiz, there is
no picture...
