World War II Reference Pictures

Postby Lego » Mon Jan 13, 2014 9:44 am

I came across this page in a reference post on another site and the quality of the pictures are truly brilliant. It is a mix of subject so I could not place it in a particular section.

its a valentine .vickers armstrong , think its a flamethrower version. not a flamethrower tank just up armoured extra guns forerunner of the valitine , one in bovinton. ImageA pre-war British development – the Mark I Cruiser tank. Armed with a two-pounder cannon and three machine guns, it was intended for fast breakthrough exploitations. However, it sacrificed armor for speed, and every time a ‘light but fast’ tank concept got tested in combat, it turned out to be a Bad Idea. It was, however, eventually developed into very successful Valentine infantry tank. :o)b
