RE: Historical Weapons
With all these tanks, we need a couple of photos of tank busters. Hawker Typhoon and Il-2 Shturmovik. Smile

I've always wanted to ride in one, just to see what the view is like from the nose.

Before they nerfed the arty so bad it was unplayable, I hit one of those directly on the side with my 8" howitzer on my M53/M55 and caused no damage (only happened once but it was astounding). I always tried to lay the shells up against the T95 and also the Tortoise to get the splash damage and really felt a sense of accomplishment taking one out.

You're going to leave out Hans Rudel's infamous tank-buster, the Ju-87 Stuka with attached 37mm gun pods? Credited with over 500 tank kills, hundreds of vehicles, nine aerial kills, and four armored trains, plus a host of antitank guns and other soft targets.

Das original A-10 Warthog!

(Look at the size of that thing! Not a pic of Hans.)
