Umm... Chief, towed AT gun with ballistics of a 100-mm/L56  B-34 naval gun (and D-10T/S) was called БС-3, (Б - "Bolshevik" plant, С - index of TSAKB). 100-mm (M)T-12 "Rapira" have nothing to do with it and is 100mm/L63 smoothbore on D-48 gun carriage, with different ammo.

 

Also, Christie supension really takes a lot of free space.

 

EDIT: it seems that anti-swear system cuts transliterated name of AT gun, so I wrote it in Russian.

Thanks for sharing that. :eyesup:

I always look forward to watching these videos from the Chief....even though I usually end up with a slight case of empathetic claustrophobia.

Something really bothered me this video. When The Chieftan was sitting in the driver's position, his audio quality noticeably dropped when he turned to face the camera. Where exactly was the mic during that segment? Other than that, great video as always.

Yes, I'm trying to fix that. My error. Have it fixed on my channel, working with Minsk to put correction on the RU and official EN channels.

Is that a socket for a pantel atop the traverse gear?

Hey Chieftain we saw you at the latest meet and greet at the Virginia tank rally and you said you would send some gold to our accounts. We (my dad and I) still haven't gotten the gold, we were wondering if we need to do something to get it?

 

Thanks,

ForTheGamers299 and HalliganStrike

The beautiful engine noise , covered up by that LOUD  music. Can we PLEASE cut the background music to JUST THAT... the BACKGROUND? was not that loud in early versions. ITs VERY distracting. 

Thank you.

  ^^^That, or better yet, no background muzak after Intro' 'til Summary.

Oh yeah, and I cringe seeing you clamber into the fighting compartment(s) bareheaded, it's just a matter of time if you keep doing that 'til you "cross your eyes/knock yourself stupid".

Thank you Chieftain.

 

As always, fascinating.

I love it when the tanks are still functional and you get to take them for a spin (ok...a few meters); AWESOME!


 

Difficult to imagine what it was like to be the crew out in the field...

One of my favorite vehicles.

nice to meet  you at the tank farm

aka Americans in wartime museum event here in N. Virginia.   

 

BTW they have a number of interesting vehicles that would make good subjects for future Chieftains hatch shows.

What? No laser sighting?  Gun isn't controlled by a computer that moves on it's own and locks onto friendly tanks, rocks, buildings, the ground... anything but the enemy tank I want to shoot? This has to be a fake video cause I KNOW WoTs is absolutely accurate in their gameplay.

Oh yeah, and Smoothbores are mathematically prohibited ... :sceptic:

 

WG could do any-damn-thing they wanted to - it's just software, after all ...
