MkH^It was called KV-VI.
Pretty cool, eh?
Hahaha, very funny. Especially the descriptions of how they failed. "Broke apart while crossing a trench", "accidentally fired into the center turret". Every single one of them has "completely destroyed the vehicle." LOL.
Old thread, but it might amuse you anyway:
T-100, a prototype of a soviet "super tank", operated in Winter War, during battles of Summa.
Ah well, the largest tank that was operational -that does not of course suggest it was actually used- was the tank-that-must-not-be-named. There you have it!
The one above is taken from a very misleading perspective.
Misleading? The tank's treads are taller than the cars next to it. In your picture the guy is taller than the tank treads. No offense, but I'd rather believe a photograph over a drawing....
Checked the height of the Panther online - came up with 3 meters. The average guy is what, almost 2 meters? So I guess the drawing is to scale then..... what's with the photograph though? Was it photoshopped?
Boys, it's called perspective, and other factor is the focal lenght of the camera lens, a wide angle one will exagerate the proportion of stuff close to the camera. O-n-c-e t-i-m-e a-g-a-i-n...the panther has the right scale like most of our custom tanks
I didn't make it!
Guyfrench Threepwood... Since there are no external views available as infantry in BF2 (sad thing), I can't figure it out.
Actually, that's not true. There are alternative views as infantry. Press "C"
I personally think the perspective in BF2 is, well, not quite right. It's not bad, but not quite right. Whomever mentioned above about the "midget on giant steps" phenomenon, well you actually DO get that in BF2.
And that story about the russian tank is great! You really should read the thing. The engineers spent their lives in the Gulag for making it. lol
GauntletI somehow doubt that... The infamous Panther comparison picture:
omg lol i want a panther. ahhhhh id be so scared to be a russian
schoolkid Checked the height of the Panther online - came up with 3 meters. The average guy is what, almost 2 meters? So I guess the drawing is to scale then.....
Well, nowadays I guess the average (man) is about 180-185 cm or something? But in the 30s and 40s I think people were actually a couple of centimeters lower.
