1st Tercios Españoles Annual Meeting 2016

It seems like yesterday when, through the game chat, I received a mysterious message from olo_Alf_olo. My hero (who was Captain America for me by then) invited me to join the creators of a clan  and he asked me for my whatsapp. Of course, I rushed to send him my number as if the prettiest girl in the High School had told me we could meet on Saturday (and I were 17 years old).

Sovietic pride: T-34

In this issue, we will continue with the history of tanks. This time we will see the tank T-34 (1ªparte) a soviet tank produced between 1940 and 1945 (from 1940 to 1943 T-34/76 and 1943-1945 T-34/85).

The T-34 is the tank with better balance in firepower, mobility and protection existing at that time, although at the beginning it was not so. The unwillingness of the crew, lack of radio, bad ammunition and inadequate tactics ruin the expectations put on it. Leer más “Sovietic pride: T-34”

Heavy tanks: armor and firepower

To continue with the previous issue of this section, we will discuss today heavy tanks. A Heavy tank is mainly that: heavy. It is heavy and slow. Especially compared with a light or medium their tonnage is very high. At least their weight is too high in relationwith their engine power. I mean a Churchill tank has less weight than an E50M, but the engine power of the medium German tank makes it quick and fast. As a consecuence of that, we consider as a  heavy the first one and a medium the second one. Leer más “Heavy tanks: armor and firepower”
