Re: T34 Analysis

The one about the sloped armour reducing the amount of space available internally is a typical Soviet era design fault; immediately postwar, all those "domed" turret designs through the next 10-15 years meant exactly the same thing, a lot of lost/unuseable space in the turret out towards the edges o...

Re: 7.5 cm Gr 38 H1/B - date of introduction into service?

Re: Passage UK to Vienna, May 1942?

I'll check this one for you over the next few days. At least one Abwehr agent got back to Germany via Lisbon from Ireland...and Sean Russell, CoS of the IRA, travelled from the UK to Germany during the war by approximately the same route.

Leo, clear out your cache/history....then when you come back on the site again, it should "force" them into view.

Re: Combat vehicles: track or rubber?...

L., I think it's more that "today" our hostilities of choice...ahem...require dual-role vehicles - AFVs that are both practical APCs and infantry section carriers wiv turrets on in the modern battlefield....

Re: Did Günter Prien Have Help at Scapa Flow?

John...if you're still looking in on this - and others who have commented... Noone needed to help Prien - the Germans were inside the RN's codes from virtually the very first day of the war if not sooner! :shock: The Navy's movements, daily wireless traffic etc. would have been monitored - in the fi...

Vehicle count - Heer 35th infantry division, early war

Guys, I'm trying to obtain a rough (or precise!) vehicle count for the 35th ID either at the beginning of the war, or the beginning of the campaign in the West on May 10th 1940.

Re: ships needed for Sealion

Re: Goodbye

Haen, I can only echo Leo's thanks with my own, and everyone on the management team's, for all the efforts you have put in over the years here and elsewhere.
