Loved the video, but it brings up an in game question:

 

Wouldn't the fuel tanks on the side be dumped before we go into battle? An since that seems like the case, then why are they not dumped or the tanks shown with them removed when we go into a battle in the game?

Wait, wait.... In the livestream you said that you hadn't done a chieftans hatch on the 704... sneaky little devil.

It appears to be the same system as the IS-4 setup if I remember from the Chieftains  IS-4 video. I'm not sure if the fuel capacity is the same. I don't think it matters with the fuel tanks in the battle since they are outside of the crew department. If they get hit, then they can jettison.

Do they have enough hatches?

Nice video, though I would have liked a little more explanation for the odd superstructure shape. Perhaps the interior ergonomics will shed some light on that?

Simple answer: because it looks cool. Fortunately, the game simulates what you described by making the fuel tanks just visual models. They're not actually part of the hitbox.

What ergonomics?

I liked the video, but the thumbnail of the video is kinda...meh.

I'll look at the thumbnail.

 

I'm not too happy with the part 2 I'm afraid. Cameraman focuses far too much on me, and not enough on the tank. It was the first vehicle we shot in Kubinka, and he hadn't been trained in yet.

I get the feeling that the Chieftain is a fanny pack-sort-of-guy.

the video is nice but the sentence "For more detailed information about the in-game performance of the Object 704, click here."  has a broken link, links you to the hetzer stat page instead of anything about the 704.

Good job one part one, I think the 704 is a sexy beast.  I can't wait for part two so I can finally find out where that cloaking device is hidden inside......

Wrong hat, braid should not be gold

Couldn't find an appropriately colored one with right angle to put on the head of Chieftroll without much editing.

Apologies if I'm out of context, but ...

 

Huh ?

 

You're right, though, the hat is just wrong ...
