Which ever early war tank you choose, it's going to have major deficiencies. Pz 38t might have the best actual combat record, mostly due to its reliability.
>>
>>34008141
The fifth one has to be either a second generation MBT or an interwar tank.

The S35 is like the best interwar tank.

If you wanted to go full ouiaboux, you could pick the Char B1.

It falls short on important things like crew configuration and actually having any way to see.

I'd be lying if I said I knew that much about interwar tanks.

If it isn't the French, I'm assuming the best one would be some kind of Czechnology.

Pz 38t was the redesignation of the Czech LT vz.38.

It wasn't exactly stellar in any way. The gun was reasonable, but far from the best. Armour was a hazard to the crew due to failing so catastrophically on hits. Speed was just normal. Crew configuration over burdened the commander.

As I said before, it would rarely fail, which is more than can be said for most tanks.

Only one of those is classically a tank, and not even a well regarded one at that.

I'm entirely unsurprised the TOG 2 was his #1. Also a lot of what he said was just repeating things previously said by David Fletcher and David Willey.
Not that that doesn't make Jingles any less entertaining, he's always admitted he's not an expert and that he frequently gets things wrong. Still a comfy and fun guy to watch/ listen to.

They might get the T-62 active again one day but their workshops are currently running maintenance on the existing collection.
But it's still ridiculous how they can have a fully-functioning Tiger I and no Soviet cold war MBT's.

I should feel bad for Jingles since he: is in his forties, looks like he's in his seventies, has no real job, no wife or gf (only an Ex-fiancee who still lives with him), and can't own too many real guns.
But at the same time I can't feel bad for him since he: Has so much cool stuff and tons of money to spend on it, lives with his 20 something year old ex and still seems to be great friends with her, gets to make videos about whatever he wants and tell stories, travels and gets invited places, has an awesome voice, just loves what he does.

>>
>>34014517
That's it. I'm sick of all this "Masterwork Koenigstiger" bullshit that's going on in /k/ right now. S-Tanks deserve much better than that. Much, much better than that.

I should know what I'm talking about. I myself commissioned a genuine Strv 103 in Sweden for 24 reindeers (that's about $20,000) and have been practicing with it for almost 2 years now. I can even cut slabs of solid steel with my S-Tank.

Swedish smiths spend years working on a single Stridsvagn and fold it up to a million times to produce the finest vehicles known to mankind.

S-Tanks are thrice as deadly as soviet tanks and thrice as hard for that matter too. Anything a T-14 can cut through, a S-Tanks can cut through better. I'm pretty sure a Strv 103 could easily bisect a M1A2 SEPv3 with TUSK II at maximal range.

Ever wonder why medieval Warsaw Pact never bothered conquering Scandinavia? That's right, they were too scared to fight the disciplined S-Tanks and their L74/62 of destruction. Even in World War II, American soldiers targeted the men with the S-Tanks first because their killing power was feared and respected.

So what am I saying? S-Tanks are simply the best tank that the world has ever seen, and thus, require better recognition. Here is the stat block I propose for the d20 system [...]
