  • HAHAHAHA
  • Damn that's good.
  • r/scp is leaking again.
  • Really a shame that Bovington went and put up a children's play area right beside her, can't get a good look at just how long she is nowadays. TOG isn't the most beautiful tank, but she's got a certain class going for her being made with trench lines in mind. Wouldn't mind if the next big restoration project they took up after the FV3805 were the TOG, what I've heard the tracks have been all locked up for decades now. Surely with some modern fineagling we could sort out those embarrassing motor fire issues, right? Also - anyone else think they must've misplaced some of the armor at some point? Would think the 76mm thick KCA plates would extend to the back, along the whole hull.
  • There were originally going to be sponsons where the side hatches are, but the design was revised. Since the TOG II was only ever a prototype, they didn't get around to fully armouring the sides and just put hatches in there for convenience. I'm sure a production model would have featured better armour design. If it had sponsons, it would have been an epic Warhammer 40,000 looking thing.
  • Aye, knew about the sponsons and side hatches deal, but more meant the lack of armor plates on the absolute rear sides of the tank. They were there at some point; this compared to this - I know it's a computer rendering, but it's the best picture I could find that showed off the missing rear armor plating, as well as showing the flange that extends out on the edge to help with holding the armor slabs in place. The WoT version seems to be directly based on the existing TOG II, so it's accurate enough. Just seems odd they'd managed to misplace a couple huge slabs of face-hardened steel over the years. Then again, they did manage to misplace the TOG I, so I suppose I can't be too surprised.
  • I can't remember if this was the TOG but there was a feature on one British tank whereby you could easily loaded a stretcher into the vehicles via a large hatch on the side of the tank. That's what that looks like to me but I'm more than likely thinking of a different tank.
  • That would be the Vickers A1E1 Independent you're thinking of with the stretcher thing, it's in the same vein of thinking as the TOG but came a couple decades earlier. Inspired a slew of multi-turreted tanks that ultimately didn't end up working that great, but it was a neat design nonetheless. Not sure what it says far as confidence in the design goes when they explicitly make it easy to pull what isn't a red mist from your former colleague out, though...
  • That's the one! Cheers.
  • If I remember correctly, they basically built the hall around TOG, and now it's in its permanent position. When I'm on the desktop I'll try and find the source.
  • That was Kubinka for the Maus.
