PS Ed, you are not, and never will be, Leroy Jethro Gibbs.

 

Eh? How did you get Gibbs out of that post?

 

That said, I really like NCIS and Gibbs.

How old is Kublinka as a museum?

 

1938 - Establishment, for military personnel only.

(basically an open field with tanks under tarpaulin here and there)

 

1972 - Allowed access of people from MoD and research institute.

(buildings were built to store vehicles)

 

1992 - Open to public.

 

 

So although Kubinka itself is very old, it wasn't really a museum in the way we think until late 20th century.

2.5k 7.62 and 440 14.5 is unusually terrible given the number of MG's it has to feed. IIRC M60 has twice as many 7.62 rounds in the ready box alone. When can we expect a reverse speed buff, as is appropriate for a vehicle with a transfer box?

The autoloader might not be fully automated, but very few are - I'm pretty certain that AMX-13 requires the drums to be manually rotated as well.

I would hope that they do maintenance on the tanks at a very least.

 

They've got a lot of vehicles to maintain, I've yet to see an armour museum with enough manpower to properly look after their collection. Maybe museum of the american GI? I haven't seen them, but apparently they keep their stuff doing what it's supposed to

Just out of curiosity, was it the paint color it would have been sent to the front with?

One thing I keep noticing is that all the tanks in Kubinka seem to be in fairly bad condition internally. I assume their restoration is not a priority, but even preservation seems to have been largely neglected.

 

Also, what's that square thing over/just behind your head in the driver's position?

 

From what I have seen.  The museums here in america have a hard time finding the money to properly restore and maintain their tanks.  And we have a lot more money here than they do over there.  

 

I think they just do not have the money and/or manpower needed to properly restore the vehicles.

  Not having a turret basket is a very scary thing, especially thinking about off road travel while in contact where slow is not an option.  The ammo storage system makes me wonder what their theory about extended engagements was.  The ability to have a mad minute is good on paper and at a range, but the rolling hills of Fulda, or Bavaria seems that would significantly effect a tank units ability to maintain a suitable rate of fire down range.

this seems to be a familiar trend for Soviet tanks of the era. T-44 and IS-3 both had ammo stuffed everywhere. I'm not sure if the T-54 and T-10 were similar.

Everyone else here wants to smack you upside the head, but I'm going to break ranks and say that you have my sympathy, because it's painfully obvious that you have no friends and nothing to live for.

Excellent vid Chief.

It did get me wondering though, if the IS7's lower plate is as thin as physical evidence seems to suggest, why is it 150mm in-game? The spaced side armor as well looks much thinner than the 30mm represented in-game.

 

How much gun depression were they able to squeeze out of that turret with the big 130 cannon?

No, I wasn't. Not enough components left inside, and indeed, my notes provided to me didn't even mention it.

 

Bet you were really pretty glad for that. I am just waiting for the day you cause a major international incident by getting yourself so completely wedged inside one of these communist wonders of engineering and crew comfort it takes the Russian jaws of life to extract you.  You do know that the Russian's specifically trained rejected as too small little people from the wizard of OZ for these things don't you? :)
