    is a rather good place to start. The Tiger was certainly impressive once they got the flaws ironed out, but...
    1) Too large fuel comsumption meant they were all too often reduced to fancy pillboxes.
    2) You could build several 'lesser' tanks using the same materials, ie two PzKfW IV or V instead of one VI.
    If you're fighting fair you've made a miscalculation.

    Sounds neat. I have a guidebook that contains over 400 modern combat vehicles with detailed line drawings and photos. Really sweet book. However, it doesn't have the T90. Wonder if you could get me the changes from T80 to T90. Thanks

    Nice site for all ww2 military hardware u posted Spetulhu not had mutch time to look at it but several listings.
    Oh and Lehesu i think ive got a site about t90's (just gotta search for it a bit) one peice of common knowledge i know about them is that the russians use Convict labour to build the vast majority witch means there cheaper than most hvy tanks.

    U must admit though a fully supplied Tiger tank is not sumthing u wanna go up against considering it took 5 shermans to knock just 1 tiger out.

The leader of vehicle has a machine gun of 12,7 mm gone(taken) up on his hatch, to assure(insure) the anti-aircraft defence of the vehicle. As for all the tanks Russian, the muffler is placed to the left behind by some hull(shell). Some fuel Diesel maybe injected inside to create a cloud of smoke. The turret is equipped with a standard(cannon) of 125 mm, this one can revolve on 360 ░ and in rise of 6 ░ in + 14 ░. The standard(cannon) of 125 mm is completely automatic, and has a system of automatic load. He can pull(fire) missiles with guides laser as well as ammunitions members of the National Convention as the HEFRAG, HEAT-FS, and the APFSDS-T.

    Knight Yellow, if you see a patron named Candidcamera on the board, he's the man to talk tanks with. He's a retired US army officer who served in an armored battalion. He knows quite a bit on the subject.
