Vampiresbane  ^This is why I probably won't ever be able to do these large tournaments.  Though I realize 6pm PST is 9pm EST so putting it later, makes it go REAL late into the night for the East Coasters.  Makes you realize that making a continent wide online tournament is hard to make starting times good for everyone.

View PostUS_3rd_Army, on Nov 05 2017 - 17:47, said: I do have a few questions about the development of American TD's M36B1 What led to to decision (and who thought) of placing the M36 turret onto a M4A3 hull to create the M36B1, what was the general opinion of the crews who received the B1, what are the performance statics for the B1, how successful was the B1 in combat, and why didn;t they think of making minior adjustments so it be adopted as it's own separate TD or maybe adopted as a new version of the Sherman?   M18 Hellcat During the development of the Hellcat, why did they choose to stay with the Wright R-975 Whirlwind, and not switch, to something like the Ford GAA?  It would seem to me that the GAA would be a better choice as an engine because it had more horsepower, it was around almost the whole time the Hellcat was in development, and has none of the problems of a radial engine.   Note: This was the original post I intended to put here, but for whatever reason, the forum screwed up to show something completely different, forcing me to write this stuff all over again.

The_Chieftain:   From the book... "The urgent requirement for GMC M36 and Medium Tank T26 (Heavy Tank T26E1) was set out by the Director of the Production Division, Army Service Forces in a memorandum dated 10 July 1944, and a meeting in Detroit the following day laid out plans for increasing production of M36 and also converting 187 M4A3 medium tanks into gun motor carriages in order to make up for a shortfall in production capability." In a nutshell, they simply needed more 90mm SPGs, and that was the way to do it. I haven't encountered any reports on the use of the B1, nor was I particularly looking for them.   And... "The Wright required the change to a front sprocket configuration, using the M7’s controlled differential, and also a hump in the hull rear which limited depression in that arc and also raised the silhouette of the vehicle a little. On the plus side, the move meant that the vehicle could be 5” shorter. It was anticipated that in the long run that the radial would be withdrawn from use, and replaced in production by the Ford V8, but there was some abundance of caution in TD Branch at this point and it was decided to wait and see if the Armored Force decided that they were satisfied with the engine in the tanks before installing it into their premier TD."

One of our more famous WoT streamers (I don't know if I'm permitted to identify) was shot walking down the street with his GF for having done nothing but be in the wrong place at the wrong time: Apparently it was a gang initiation. People are getting shot for 'dissing', for wearing the wrong clothes, or for a set of $300 trainers. Killing others in job lots just to make the news and go down in fame. We are celebretizing these folks. We are simply bringing up our future citizens to not care about someone else's life. Change that, and the firearms won't be a problem.

The_Chieftain: I think it may also be worth noting that there may be a difference in the points of various unions.   The ones which give a bad name are similar to the ones Killjoy has mentioned. Those where it seems that the only purpose of the union is to negotiate (or demand at the risk of strike action) better pay/conditions, and to make it very difficult to fire folks. However, some unions are also more like guilds, in that they also take it upon themselves to teach the trade and set and enforce standards. A bit more like, say, a State Bar Association. They still have political clout, whilst performing a useful service to all parties, both the employers and the employees.

What's that?   http://www.military.com/daily-news/2015/01/28/pentagon-tells-congress-to-stop-buying-equipment-it-doesnt-need.html   So the army is forced to take more tanks than they can handle while the navy doesn't have the scratch to maintain it's ships and train its seamen? Thanks Congress! Yeah I can see it from both sides. IIRC one of the prosecution's arguments was that it's like a drunk driver who hits a families mini van, yes he may have been seriously injured himself but that doesn't change the fact that he's guilty as sin of seriously injuring or endangering (or killing) others.
 

The_Chieftain:   There is only one factory left in the US which makes tanks. Strategic necessity needs to keep it open. There are two ways of doing this, one can either buy more tanks than needed, creating a larger reserve including things which can be given to allies, or, say, the Japanese method of deliberately slow production, which dramatically increases unit cost, but reduces resource expenditure and block obsolescence.

The formula to calculate this is as follows:  Base XP + x2 + x3 + x4 + x5 Only applicable to a Win, and not a Loss or Draw Limited to the vehicle it was bundled with In sum, more XP will be earned with the booster in Wins for the one hour it is active than you would earn with one x5 for the one battle. Remember, you cannot stack the daily bonus with the x5, but it stacks with the booster.

View PostOhSlowpoke, on Oct 30 2017 - 15:20, said:     Also, Chieftain, I know it's likely from the Archives but I find it curious about the quotes related to 6 Pounder vs 75mm M3 penetration reports (or, paraphrased from you) stating that the 75mm was either equal to or superior to the 6 Pounder at ranges beyond 500 yards. According to British trial reports there was absolutely no range where the 75mm was superior to the 57mm- not at point blank, not at 2000 yards, not at any kind of angle. Perhaps this was due to the poor performance of American 57mm ammo compared to UK ammo? If anything by 2000 yards the 57mm APCBC is actually superior to 75mm APCBC. If you compare the earlier AP shots (6 Pounder AP vs M72), the weight advantage of the 75 only really benefits over the 57mm at ranges over 2400~ yards.

I know this might be the case of internet bolt counters and number crunchers versus real circumstances- but sometimes it has me headscratching- at short ranges (>700 yards) the 57mm has some massive advantages in penetration. It could, for example, "semi"-reliably penetrate Tiger I frontally, and with APCR or APDS it could do so at a broad set of angles and range. It really makes me wonder if it was worth, for example, converting ALL Cromwell tanks to 75mm, and rather have some retaining the 57mm for anti-tank duty. The 6 Pounder did get a HE round later that performed acceptably.

The_Chieftain:   My filing system sucks, but this one is easy enough to find on my hard drive: It's part of the letter General Bruce sent recommending changing from the 57mm T49 to the 75mm (eventually-named) T67.   Just arrived Sydney.

The T14 stuff kinda annoys me atm but then I have been reading the British Army Staff (AFV) Situation Reports which paint a very different view on the T14.

76mm guns were also to be on Tanks in very very small numbers initially and when Denvers comes back from North Africa  these numbers go up but most of these 76mm guns went to TDs and not Tanks... It would not be until months later that they get redirected to Tanks. Again at the Sit Reps...

The Tungsten issue is BS... According to the Canadians who were told to STOP producing so much Tungsten.

Turret transverse is complicated.  The Panther D has fairly good optics in terms of field of view but poor transverse. Where as the A and G and F have the transverse but the optics field of view for the gunner is narrower. Now according to the British figures for the optics and comparing it to the US optics on the M4. The D model is comparable. Where as with the A G and F it got narrower and iirc the magnification got higher. Now US optics were continually being upgraded in magnification and improved field of views... as well as better gradients on the optics themselves to make it more user friendly.

The_Chieftain:    I don’t know what the British view of T14 was, but the US test reports are pretty condemning.   I have not seen anything discussing the relative allocation of 76mm guns between TDS and M4s, but the documents listing the raw numbers of M4s clearly state that the intent for the 76mm Quick-Fix turrets was to have a thousand of them for the invasion of North Africa.   Tungsten... may be BS, but that is what was reported.   Are those optics comparisons referring only to the US direct vision telescope, or also including the combination periscopoc sight?

The_Chieftain:   Well, that’s interesting. They have drilled a bow machine gun hole into the bow, and built up around the new mount.It’s not a B1, which is the only variant which came with a bow MG.

The_Chieftain:   If Cyprus sorts itself out, next week.Was supposed to be Monday, but they are being infuriating with their requests for clarifications before approving things. Every time they ask a question, it’s 24-hour turnaround time because of the time zones not overlapping office hours.And they are usually unnecessary questions.

The SU-152 book comes with a SU-85i code, and the T-34 book has a T-34-85M code. Also days of premium, gold, and credits. But I think the premium tank is probably the important part. ;)

The_Chieftain:   Last March, you mean? They are the books I mentioned are being disappointing in sales to date. They are a bit like Volk’s book. Highly detailed and a bit eclectic. Niche, but as good in that niche as you will get. http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/549068-lombardy-books-with-chieftain-and-lombardy/

The_Chieftain: I jus walked in the hotel from the Tennessee State Capitol. They have quite a good State Museum here. Not a hint of any trouble, i’m Not sure why they picked the location they did.   I have no idea what the Yuri business is. WG has provided me with the best possibility of getting the highest quality book out, so whatever your issues are with the WG/Yuri relationship, you will either find my book a good reference worth having on your bookshelf for the price, or you won’t. I don’t think it should be evaluated on any other grounds.

The_Chieftain:   There is no such necessary implication. Ireland is a case in point. We did things which certainly helped the Allies in the war in the Atlantic, such as not requiring ASW aircraft to detour around Donegal (not that we advertised that much) but we absolutely were officially neutral and not involved in the war.   I don’t know what Portugal did or did not do with regards to the U-boat war, but official neutrality does not mean that the Portuguese did not assist, publicly or not.
