When kids have reserved the PS for their games, I look videos from Youtube and recently I discovered old WW2 training videos. 

In this video  "Crack That tank"   I love the "German" tank with white cross in front of it, it looks like a Tiger armor test platform. :D

 

"Look at that flat tire!" :trollface:

 

If you see other old training videos with tanks post it in here.

Here is a tank training video worth to look through.

 

"Security on the March: Mechanized Units"

Great video, thanks for sharing. It could find use even in WoT as a general rule of covering flanks and avenues of approach, something players nowdays seem to struggle with.

 

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

3 MoE tanks: T-34, Pz IVH, Tiger I, Pz.Kpfw. T 25, M7, T-50

After this video I figured out why some Soviet tanks have wooden logs with them.  :teethhappy:

 

 

Now I know how to get my Sherman out of the mud... if WG ever decides to add mud it into the game.

Here's a composite film from the Australian War Memorial - mainly tank trials and demonstrations, but some interesting vehicles here.

Flipping the tank back on its tracks while being shot at seems about right.:D Time wise that is.
