We take a break from Kubinka, with our first look at the German offerings.

Will be funny to watch the fireworks on the forums if they ever do add the E-10 in game and rename the hetzer to it's proper name.

Am I the only one that thinks the design is a touch wonky?  I mean look at the interior of a J38(t).  In order to load the gun, the commander (who doubled as the loader in most cases) had to reach ACROSS the back of the gun to the right side (from the left) to load the thing. As opposed to putting the gun on the left so he wouldn't have to do that.

That looks like a 65 series battery (common to Ford light trucks like the Bronco). Are they using that because they can't find the right size for the vehicle (the frame that looks like it might be a battery tray , also looks like it's meant to have two 93 series side by side (91's and 93's are common to German vehicles today), or some larger battery not available today? The two wing nuts leads me to believe there's a battery cover that is missing from the vehicle as well, am I right?

I believe the hetzer is also called the E-10 as well for being part of the E series

This has to be one of the worst videos you have put out. Was the camera man too scared to move around and show what he is talking about? The intro was almost longer than the information part.

Thanks for the video, look forward to part 2, when you make us all sympathetically claustrophobic.

Then what happens to the driver?

I am kinda surprised that when you were at the front, you didn't mention the Notek lamp, particularily since technically, it had no place of being there, since the vehicle was of post-war production and the lamp was manufactured by Nova Technik from Germany (also, I suspect a lot of people were wondering what the hell is that ugly thing on the front - yes, it's a night reflector). The reason it was there is that these were mounted on various SPG's and after the war, Czechoslovaks captured like 1100 of them in crates, ready to be mounted. There were no spare parts manufactured (apart from the special bulbs), Czechoslovakia was simply using German captured tech well into late 60's. Czechoslovak T-34's were equipped with Notek lamps, that's how you recognize them (not reliable though, Polish used them too).
