    Should I take offence at that without any reasoning? Sorry if i've come across creepy, but idk what you're referring to?
    You're guilty of taking Moxxi seriously there. That and the scary staring eyes on your PS2 character.

    Yeah maybe, but I don't think anybody wants to be called a creep .

    Hear from the spirit-world this mystery:
    Creation is summed up, O man, in thee;
    Angel and demon, man and beast art thou,
    Yea, thou art all thou dost appear to be!

    We all play a game where we run around in giraffe coloured spandex. Only if we formed a rock band could we all be less creepy.

    In that case, no harm done and really no need to apologise! I just wasnt sure if I had done something, because I tend to type a lot of crap without really reading it back too much.. who knows. Anyway, we can totally laugh about it now without me thinking ive done something :3. Never mind!

The American tanks had rubber track blocks and an automatic gearbox. The Cenurions could climb hills by dropping into 1st gear, but the American automatic gearboxes resulted in them " coming back down the hill sliding sideways or backwards".
    Yes, I believe a Black Prince (A43?, reverse of the Comet[A34]) was also used there. Or so a mate of mine is convinced. He had seen documents that stated the specific ammunition was shipped there.

    I dont know if you know it, but a A43 is the unholy mating of the Comet Turret(77mm[well 76.something] ammunition, Firefly[Sherman VC] based gun in a [Lengthend]Cromwell chassis) with the Churchill hull(ugly hull).

    The book I'm reading, "To the Last Round" by Andrew Salmon, refers to Cromwells being there. In fact, the first tank kill by a Centurion was a captured Cromwell

    I cannot find any reference to the black prince variant ever seeing combat.

    I can never read the name Cromwell without some bile. The thought of many Cromwell's is terrifying.

    There were Cromwell's there? I suppose only as CS tanks? I cannot phantom the Cromwell winning any fight against a Late 1940's Sovjet armour. Well maybe a few early leftover tankette's but other then that, not really. Wasnt it mostly T-34's in Korea?

    They were primarily used in a recon role.

    Hmm interesting. Daimlers were not suitable enough for the Korean terrain I suppose.

    Wheeled vehicles were very restricted in Korea, and only really usable on the "roads".

    Speaking of Korea, anyone getting swept up in the recent sensationalism should be required to look at this picture;



    The bit with the white border is North Korea. A country with street lighting less extravagant than the middle ages isn't super threatening unless it actually is the middle ages. They have no fuel, no resources for manoeuvres, no combat experience since the 50's and a shitload of Russian tanks which were obsolete around the 70's. That they can't possibly fill since they have no fuel. Take away nukes and south korea's military would take them single handedly and probably quicker than we did Iraq.

    Oh, I was just going to post an interesting picture but I went off on one a bit there. Love you bye!
