For the Record: Russians rage on IS-4 video
Hello everyone, It’s not every day that something pisses the Russian community off, but looks like The_Chieftain made that happen with his latest IS-4 video: * * To be clear – it’s a great video, as usual with Chieftain’s Hatch. I really like the series and it’s nice to see some of the more exotic Kubinka tanks this way. Strangely enough, Russians started moaning as hell – both in youtube comments (of the Russian video version). They didn’t The_Chieftain saying like that the IS-4 was in real life a bad tank and that some of its elements (as Chief mentions, the ventilators, this information comes from Yuri Pasholok!) were openly copied from Germans (Soviets actually did copy a lot of good solutions for other tanks too – notably some muzzle brakes, they’d be crazy not to, if the enemy produces something they could use). Probably the peak of anti-Chieftain hate was this garbage post on Russian community forums, where the author tinwoodman1 moans like a little bitch that allegedly Chieftain praises crappy American and German tanks, while Soviet junk glorious Iosef Stalin tank gets shafted. Funnily enough, Storm intervened in the abovementioned thread: “The tank was shitty in real life. Why should it be praised? And in general – stop fucking trolling, dear community” Well, there you have it. Gotta love Storm getting pissed. Russians are actually very sensitive about their tech, or – more the like – about western capitalists commenting on their tech. Despite their whining, personally, I think the video was good and to the point. Looking forward to part two.
