For today’s Hatch, we go South of the equator, to that well-known bastion of tank production, Brazil! I've never been there, I suggest we should have a player gathering on the beach in Rio. I wonder who else would attend? Anyway, I digress. It’s the local independence day down there, thus providing our first tenuous link to the very Portuguese tank name of “Al Fahd”

Woa! Amazing, really amazing! This morning I was watching the Independence Day parade and I was thinking: would be nice to see our beloved Osório on the parede too.... then I was gathering some info about it to send to chief publish at portal. Now I had a wonderfull surprise reading this topic. Thank you Chief

Well aware of the rather sad tale of the Osorio and the fate of Engesa. Kind of the TSR-2 of the tank world.

First they covered the Brazilian Expeditionary Forces and now this, I think I've learned more about Brazil from WoT than anywhere else.
