Pershings are so awesome. Just can't get over how sexy they are.

Should've mentioned that it wasn't a crossdrive transmission. Lol.

They should somehow get Anna Prosser to co-host these videos.

Only reason I ever sat down through those long dull Irish accented tank information during E3. :Smile_trollface-3: :Smile_trollface-3: :Smile_trollface-3: :Smile_blinky:

Anna Prosser....you have to be joking! She could barely keep her eyes open through the interview. OK, so she made the right grunts, oooh's and aaaah's, but anyone with a wife, girlfriend, sister or mother knows that women have perfected that art by the age of seven. Anna's were less than convincing. If you want a female co-host or interviewer, please at least find one who knows the difference between an M1A1 and a Hoover...........

(ANSWER)  There is only 1 dirtbag in a Hoover.

Hello Nick,

Enjoyed the M26 walk around.  Hope this finds you well.  I imagine 1SG Larson and SFC Puentes would enjoy it.  If you get a chance drop me a line.

I have a hard time hearing exactly what the field expediant method of fixing the cupola hatch is;  I think I hear drilling holes and installing a car pin?

I really hope you can get inside the T-95. That would be awesome.

Cotter pin, Barasu.

Jim, you know Puentes is a 1SG (Retired) now, right? Ye Gods, the years have gone by...

Informative as expected, my only wish for the series would be a look at the M103 under the microscope.

That was great! I got to see what an M26 looks like not only on the outside in great quality, but on the inside to! Almost felt like I was there. I know the vehicles are similar, but can you please do a vid about the M48? Also, I don't know if you would have access to the inside or not, but the T95 still exists, just a thought.

The concept of this little show is quite good however the execution is not all that great and to be honest quite boring.

Most of the information giving can be easily found around the web or in museums. The strong point are the little things "you didn't know that" like a detail about the power switch and things like that, add in more of those little facts that people are not likely to know and I think it will be more fun to watch and also the tone of humor used when addressing things like this helps to distance itself from being a technical basic run down of the tank.

Great videos Nick, loved them.  Keep them coming.

You did look a bit cramped inside the beast though.

Great second part looking forward to the next tank.
And did i hear it correctly, the Pershing didn't have a neutral gear? Correct me if I'm wrong but the one in game has it right?

So everyone keep that a secret I don't want to see the pershing losing it's neutral gear in game, it's just so handy.

didnt see anyone answer sry if I was ninja'd;

the phone for the infantry was so they could follow/hide behind for cover and still call out targets-talk to the tank crew inside...
from what I remember.
