The Last Unknown Soldier;3885610probably mention, already forgotten about, Churchill Flame tank, Sherman Crocodile,and the airborne tanks

Correct on all of them. Churchill Crocodile was mentioned by me. http://forums.filefront.com/fh2-suggestions/198383-3-different-but-similar-suggestions.html I never really got an answer for it. Only four Sherman Crocodiles were ever made, the Sherman POA would be a more feasable approach to American flametanks. I also suggested the cute little Tetrarch but...Again nothing ever came of it. I'd like to revive these threads (Don't post in them, they're too old!) but to get the idea out there again. http://forums.filefront.com/fh2-suggestions/311856-sas-jeep-airdrop.html Speaking of airborne tanks we could also use a few of the Soviet ones, T60's slung under TB3s. But they were pretty useless I think, only a 45mm gun and minimal armor.

Actually, the T-60 was a light tank with a 20mm TNSh cannon which while it did have great penetration capabilites had absolutly no behind armor effect meaning it only made a hole in a AFV and no more then that. Against infantry they where pretty good though but they where disliked and refered to as BM-2 "Bratskaya Mogila na dvoikh" (a brother's grave for two). It wasnt really designed as a airborne tank but it was modified later for such purposes but the entire project was abandoned because the because of a lack of sufficiently powerful airplanes. Further work on the KT tank was cancelled and never resumed.
