After the brief break, we've taken into account the feedback for the first three vehicles, and so we are moving to a slightly different format. We'll still be covering the tanks to the same level of detail, just in more, shorter sessions. And yes, with a better microphone.

We're going to be leaving the American vehicles alone for a while, and move onto a few non-US ones. The first to receive our attention is Comet.

Enjoy.

An excellent video, and very well done on the mic quality. Though maybe a bit overboard with the effects in the beginning.

Excellent!

These keep getting better.  Production quality, pacing, sound quality, everything.

Taking time for the "rant" was brilliant.  It is exactly what makes a guided tour by an experienced tanker so much better than reading a wiki article.

Please, keep up the good work  :Smile_Default:

As a Canadian, I agree.  We need a review on a Ram.

I need to find a Ram in good enough condition to do it, inside and out. With an instruction manual.

LOL Chief rant.

Anyways, thank you so much for doing a review on the Comet. It is my favorite tier 7 tank. I now have the Centurion Mk.1 and currently grinding to the Mk. 7/1. Hope you can make more reviews on the Brits. Keep the videos coming.  :Smile_Default:

You're on to a winner with this new format, Chieftain. I especially enjoyed your rant - please add more character and personality into otherwise dry presentations about armor - and I also liked your 'sweet chieftain transition', made me chuckle a bit. Was that something you came up with, or the editor / director of the video? Do you edit your own videos or do you have a specific editor / director?

Just one teensy tiny minor note of criticism: your voice is great for narration with a slight sarcastic, dry 'soldier's wit' attitude. Your voice is not as suited for dramatic intro narration, it lacks a bit of gravitas.

Also, I would very much like to voice my request for some deutsches stahl next episode. I realize a big cat would be hard to come by, but you shouldn't have much problems finding a Pz I, II, III or IV in good nick - or any of their variants.

Keep up the great work!

Great video. I must say the new format is a nice improvement over the older videos. And that Chieftain rant was great. :Smile_veryhappy:

I'm pretty sure Bovington still has one, if you get the chance to go to England.

...and if you do get that chance, it's not too far from IJssel Line. There's a Ram incased in concrete there. :p

True,One Dutch Ram tank, an OP/Command vehicle, survives at the Dutch Cavalry Museum in Amersfoort.
Ram tanks can also be seen at the Canadian War Museum, in Worthington Park at Canadian Forces Base Borden, in front of the Beatty Street Armoury in Vancouver, and at the Bovington Tank Museum
