Re: MBT's

Re: T26E4 Super Pershing Icon set 1.0

Actually, there's nothing in Hunnicutt's book on the T35.

Most of the information is from documents in the National Archives.

Re: T33 Flame Tank

The gun used on the T33 (in the initial wartime order) was the 75mm M6 gun from the M24 chaffee. Weight-wise, this weighs 400~ lbs vs the 890~ lbs for the 75mm M3 gun on the "traditional" Sherman;...

NORINCO has also unveiled the new "GL-5" APS that might be installed on the latest block production of ZTZ-99s -- I wouldn't go putting it in until we see ZTZ-99 photos with APS installed.
