    Default Identify that Tank/Ship/Plane/Artillery etc

    Old thread.

    Considering all nations have very distinctive-looking weaponry, I thought it would be an interesting idea to start a thread based around the identification of tanks, ships etc. through their photographs. When you identify the object in question, please give a little more details about it like its service history, famous battles it took part in etc., although these may be included by the poster if the object is particularly obscure.

    Here is the first picture, nice and easy:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    Built in the 20s and then underwent a refit in the 1930s. Named after a province in its country of origin.

    I suppose you can give reputation to those who guess correctly.


    Thread Rules about the game Please listen as here are the rules and I'd rather not have this shut down:
    • One person posts a picture with any details the poster feels are necessary.
    • You can use imageshack or photobucket to post a picture. You're advised to change your picture's name before posting it. You can also mirror it and add stuff to fool image search engines and/or remove stuff like roundels that make it easy to identify a picture.
    • Everyone else tries to guess the picture posted, whilst providing some details about their guess.
    • The person who guessed correctly gets reputation from the original poster of the picture and then posts their own picture within 24 hours.
    • Anybody can take the turn if a picture isn't posted within 24 hours or if the person who guessed the last picture says that anybody can take his turn.
    • The process repeats itself.

    Italian Semovente (or however you spell it), 90 mm AA gun mounted and used as anti-tank/artillery

    Indeed, probably the most effective armoured vehicle they had.

    ZB vz.39.


    Since I know I'm right, here's the next picture. I want the specific name of the vehicle in the centre of the picture.

    I hope its not the blunderous failure that was the rocket leaping Bren Gun Carrier.

    Does this rocket leaping Bren Gun Carrier have a name or a more elaborate description?

    Sounds intriguing doesn't it. I'll try to find a source. It was mentioned in a lecture and we were shown a picture of it, basically the idea is it would jump obstacles, problem is only the rockets on 1 side fired, and it flipped, spin, and landed on its roof, killing the crew.

    I would love to see a source for that, but it doesn't sound like my Bren gun carrier. This one is also really special. It is missing a very important part to begin with.

    New thread started as old one had to be disposed as per site owner's request. Long story short, these things are being done because of the recent slow downs and lags\503 errors that we are facing.

    Btw if anyone wants to report then please PM active moderators (who're online) instead of bulk reporting threads, it will be easy for us to manage then. Thanks.

    Moving some of the recent posts from it, so that the continuity is not broken.

    Sorry but it's necessary. Anyways since this thread is informative i have restored it, but please if someone revisits the old thread then make sure you're in liner mode. Check the thread from where i took GED's post and you'll know what i'm talking about. Lastly any talk about this goes here just in case someone has any queries\problems with it.

    Can you also add a link to the old thread in the OP?

    EDIT: And thank you for restoring the old thread. It's very dear to me.

    Old thread is deleted, rep is marked as N/A.

    and could we have some more clues for the Universal carrier?

    It's a highly explosive variant and it doesn't have an engine.

    Rep doesn't get lost if a post or thread is deleted. It is marked as N/A (I believe that it stands for not available).

    The old thread has been restored because of its educational value, but it will remain locked.
