Rob and John take start off with the modern state of tank conflict in the caucasus before teeing up on what Japanese armour had to offer the world in 1942. Bringing us back to the point that the best tank is the best tank you've got.
A tank that only made sense as a fascist empire failed to come to terms with the reality of its own demise. It still remains one of the great villains of history, an icon to conjure with. This month we talk about the Tiger.
Forget your big cats, forget your miracle weapons. The greatest German tracked fighting vehicle of the Second World War was based around proven manufacturing, training, and logistics and an adequate gun. Thankfully they did not learn from this lesson. But we've learned plenty from talking through the history of the Stug III.
In this outing we take a deep breathe and go though the most poorly understood and yet massively produced tank of the world's most important tank war. We dive deep on the M4 Sherman. It was the best of tanks, it was the worst of tanks...
New host Rob joins John to take us through the smallest and most obscure tank with an unexpectedly huge cultural impact. It's the Ontos, The Thing, The Pig, or, in polite company, the "Rifle, Multiple 106 mm, Self-propelled, M50".
