Hi folks

I’ve been watching a TV series on YouTube called Tank Overhaul. It’s very interesting. Just finished episode 2 which features a 1944ish Panther tank pulled from a polish river back in 1990. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tank_Overhaul

While each episode does focus on a particular tank restoration project, it doesn’t purely focus on the drama of the restoration but there are elements of that plus it provides some very interesting insight into the tanks their history(both specific vehicles story plus general vehicles of same model), comparative effectiveness during the war, tank specs, impact on war, and future designs, tear down highlighting design elements plus insight into restoration method and tools. 

 

Not technically heavy but interesting to me as a layman and someone with a general interest in WW2 military history and tanks.

Wow that's an old programme, didn't realise it was on YouTube. It was on discovery channel originally. The lads restoring the Comet are in the Isle of Wight and it's a cracking little museum they have, went a few years a go and the display the do in their arena is good fun 

Come see me stream on twitch.tv/choppermeir you never know you might enjoy it.

YouTube as well https://www.youtube....user/choppermeir
