hands down the Abrams Battle tank, even though the krauts had some sexy tanks back in ww2... as for plane, probably the skyraider, just cause its the Nam A-10

For tank it'd be the M4 Sherman for me, fought the war for basically every allied nation and didn't look half bad doing it. It's got a pretty bad reputation as being a death trap but it's mostly exaggerated and I won't believe anyone who says the Easy 8 aint one of the sexier tanks of the war



As for plane I'd have to say the B-17, she's big ugly and slow but my great grandfather served aboard one and I've read all about it so I have a bit of a soft spot for em.


There's my grandfather with his B-17 the "War Bride"

which one is your Grand father Kirch?

i never had the ability to talk to my grandparents about the war cause they passed away before i was born except my grand mother, but from what ive heard they wouldnt talk about it anyway. i forget what my dads father did, but my moms father was a cook in pattons army i beleive. my uncle was a medic, what a generation.

i also like the sherman, but every game i play they seem to get squashed easily. and there rounds are quite bouncy

Y'all might call me a Germaboo but dammit I just love the designs of the Panzer IV and the Stuka.

He's on the first row, second from the left with the upturned cap and mean stare. He had a pretty cool story, served as a waist gunner, and on his last (25th) mission he subbed in on the tail gun and was shot down over France, made it as far as Belgium before being turned over to the Gestapo and spending the rest of the war in a POW camp in Southern Germany.

Never got to meet him unfortunately, but his stories lived on through family and a book he was interviewed for, the only great grandparent I've been able to meet is my mother's grandfather who served in Korea and got sent home deaf due to an enemy grenade, as an African-American I'm sure he has plenty of interesting stories about serving in an Army during segregated times but I live across the country now unfortunately and I'm not sure I'll get to ask him anything real interesting before he passes.

thats an awesome career there Kirch, i remember when i was younger and id take care of my neighbors dogs, there elderly father would always be sitting on the porch and tell me all about his time in the Army as a Medic, in D-Day, and practically all over the place,  i miss those stories, and i wished i held onto those stories and truly let the sink in the way they should have. its a shame that whole generation is disappearing now, and what used to be the elderly telling us stories of world war 2 its now the elderly telling us stories of Vietnam. the older you get the more and more "mortality" sinks in... if that makes sense lol.
