British Prototype Tanks of WW2

Funky tanks and big ideas weren't just restricted to the Germans (but who could turn down a Tiger III, really?)  Anyway, the Brits had their own and creative tank designers too, some of which would look great on a Weird WW2 table.

  1. You can see that Tog II in the flesh (so to speak) at the Bovington Tank Museum (UK). It's a real behemoth!

  2. You have to wonder who comes up with ideas like these and, what are they on at the time!!!

  3. I've seen the Tog at Bovington. It's huge, a real monster.

  4. Great find. Thanks for sharing Paul. I would like to borrow the light tank, to do some shopping. No problems then with a parking place :-D

  5. I just love the 'turretless' look of assault guns and certain tank destroyers...
    I run Stugs and Jagz in lists where clearly other tanks would maybe be better...
    I just can't help myself...those tanks just exude menace in my tiny mind.
    So low profile, so lethal.

    That self propelled gun is just soooo sexy to me...
    Googling 'Alecto.'
    :D
