ISU-152 don't need no log.

 

Also, while the Chieftain's Snapshots were nice, I'm glad there's full episodes going up.

I would hate to be the poor guy who had to load that heavy shell. Imagine how it would be in batle after a few shots allredy

There's a similar filler cap cover on the FV432, although that one's on the front (and is used to access the transmission dipstick IIRC)

Zaloga's tank books do have several pictures of American tanks with logs (generally from Fall 44', when it got muddy).  Interestingly, "logs" is the word, most have 3-4 chained together as a "corduroy mat".

those it mention which army was using the American tanks? As one must remember American anks were exported to the allies.

were they using it as a fascine maybe? I know that some engineering vehicles and other tanks that thought they might have to cross ditches carried bundles of logs as fascines to just dump in a ditch as a little bridge.

Not fascine (not enough size).  Same idea as the Russians, just more logs, and only for around 2-3 months (all the shots are from the fall of 1944).

What rolls down stairs, alone or in pairs, rolls over the neighbor's dog?

What's great as a snack, and fits on your back?

 

It log, log, LOG!

 I keep wondering if anyone ever thought to sharpen one end of the log, nail a big canvas streamer to the other end, load the 152 with a powder charge and batting to keep the canvas streamer from burning, and fired it, like a giant game of lawn darts...

The_Chieftain, I felt rather honoured to be killed by you in your FCM50t tonight.  Good battle!

Just make sure you remember to pour fuel in the right port and not the oil port

 

Or you might have more to worry about than enemy tanks  :smile:

I don't know, but I'd like to see someone try. Preferably from a safe distance

Reminds me of my idea of loading the T-34/85's 85mm main gun with those little paint or laquer cans (obviously a gallon can would never fit) to play some extreme pub darts...

...but frankly, I think there are far fewer ways for a giant log to go wrong. :blinky:  You find the 152s and I'll get to work on the logs, comrade.

Was I the only one who was irritated by how loud the music was? In my opinion it took away from the video and made it awkward to focus on his words; not impossible or even that hard, but very annoying nonetheless.
