Hello everyone, today, I’d like to remind you, dear readers, of one of the best things Wargaming has ever done for tank enthusiasts: the Operation Think Tank video. For those, who do not know about this (hard to believe, right!), a little explanation: in March 2012, Wargaming invited the top world tank historians and authors of many publications to the USA for a sort-of conference about the history of tanks and tank warfare. Those experts invited were: Steven Zaloga Harry Yeide Hilary Doyle (yes, THE Hilary Doyle, author of Panzer Tracts) David Fletcher (by far the most amusing member and British tanks expert) Rob GriffinKenneth Estes (for Russian players: if you are looking for a Russian armor expert in the panel, S.Zaloga covered the topic a lot, Yuri Pasholok was invited, but he couldn’t make it) The whole event was hosted by noone else than US forum tank expert and US armor specialist, Nicholas “The Chieftain” Moran. Here, you can find more info on the authors. If we were to use music analogy, it’s like seeing Mark Knopfler, Phil Collins, BB King and Eric Clapton perform on one stage together. The result was a wonderful show, where all sorts of matters were being discussed. Of those important to WoT players: - does frontal transmission cause fires? - was Jagdpanzer E-100 “Krokodil” a real project? - the effect of spaced armor on armor protection and many more…. It’s definitely worth watching tbh. Personally, I watched quite a few times already, some stages are even really funny. So, where can you watch it then? Here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oLY4...1D&index=1 This is a link to the playlist of the whole thing. I definitely recommend it. Also, if you don’t feel like youtube, you can download the whole thing after registering: Part 1 Part 2 Enjoy!
