They are studying enemy tanks, their shape for fast recognition, maybe weak spots in armor.
All lycka på färden!

Found this photo of an attempt to upgun the T-60. Its a new 37mm gun, but it uses the same ammo as the 37mm AA gun in use by the army, so it wasnt too bad for its size. Unfortunately it was still too big for the turret

Because he is posting a photo of a prototype?
This is a thread for interesting pics - and not a "next ef content update thread" ;)

To add more pics:

Matilda II tank. The turret was removed and replaced with a 5cm gun. Used by training units in the Netherlands. Fate unknown.


Field improvisation of a german field repair shop USed by the 18. and 3. Panzer-Division during the heavy winter fights in 1941/42 near Kharkov.

Sorry but i cant differ between a normal sentence and a joke when there is no help (e.g. emoticon or something else)  :-\

Soviets were ordered to use any weapon to fights against low level close attack aircrafts.
Even anti tank rifles had to fire on planes.

May the force be with you.

Found a picture of a T-70 tank upgraded with a VT-42 45mm gun, based on the long barreled 45mm anti tank gun.

About 10 were converted and may have saw combat. 1 T-80 also was upgraded with the gun but it remained a prototype\
