I just want to say this was a really cool video. I dont know if this is the first one but It was cool. I never knew much about tanks (espically WW tanks) before this game. Now Im  getting into the history a bit and its very cool to watch a movie and see a tank and know what it is now. Thanks for the education/history in the vid and write ups.

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.

You did, and it does. The game is incorrect.

If I do not have filming level access to a real vehicle, and if that vehicle does not exist in a sufficiently intact state to actually film, I would not expect an Inside the Hatch on that vehicle type.

You'll be happy then. :)

I'm glad to hear this. The M103 always struck me as an interesting tank design. :Smile_Default:

Still, I'm very happy to see you started with the Pershing. One of my favorite in game tanks, and one of my favorite designs from the war. If only it didn't have those engine and transmission problems....I really do wonder how much of an impact it would have had on the war [or, more relevantly, if things soured with the Soviets after 1945...].

If nothing else, the Pershing just LOOKS great. Exactly what I think about when I think "tank" :Smile_great:

Do a Chaffee, Chief! Or a Hellcat!

We can see how small and cramped the Persh is, let's see something even smaller!

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.

M26 ingame is essentially an M46. M46's real improvements over the M26 were in it's engine and cross-drive transmission.

M26 ingame upgrades to the AV-1790, which was the M46's engine, and has neutral steer, so it is, essentially, an M46.

And that's why having the M46 as a tier 9 instead of the M47 has always stuck in my craw a bit.

Fully-upgraded Pershing is some weird hybrid between the M46 Patton and the T26E4 Super Pershing.

Now thats cool as shit, ive always wanted to see the inside of a tank...the M26 gunner slot seems kinda cramped...is that the breach like right there? he leans to far right and BAM gun breech wacks him.  Bad as hell anyway =D  Pershing is cool as shit.

What? You mean you cant do a review for all the made up/prototype/blue print/"Hey this is a good idea..." tanks in the game? But I really, really want to see an E100! And a VK2801! And a Object 261! Do it! NOW! Or I'll cry!

Its a great concept and a really helpful one for the average Joe in the World Of Tanks World. Not everyone has access to the interiors of AFV's nor the knowledge of what they're looking at. Keep up the really good work, Nick.

So... Is the T95's interior even in shape to be filmed in after all those years of sitting in the woods?

Maybe Wargaming will some day earn enough money to hire a bunch of steel welders, engineers and hobbyists to make a E-100 and have it roll along just to show us that the in game vehicle doesn't need buffing...
