    Well said Adam.

    Whatever the Thing turns out to be, at least you had a choice and you can thank a veteran for that. Good luck mates!

    Enjoyed the tread very much. Thanks for all the work.
    You can revive it next fall. You haven't done the SU-100 yet!

    Adam, please, surely you'll keep going till the bleedin' rubbish exit thing has run it's course?

    Thank you for all your endeavours past, and to come.

    Kind regards, always,

    I've got my eye on you buggers.
    We're keeping them at bay, remember.

    Tut tut.

    Though I'll let it pass just this once as there is actually a tank visible. :unsure:

    I wonder what we can successfully avoid with tracked assistance next...

    That Kummersdorf armour thickness marked Sherman was the first (or one of the first) they got hold of.

    Hang on.

    Here we go:
