Upper hull overhang?

Postby COCHA » Tue Jan 12, 2016 10:47 pm

Is "upper hull overhang" a valid term for that part of the hull that extends over the tracks? Or is "pannier" the term? The Russian term is "подкрылок," which usually translates to "pannier" in a military context.

I have two sources that define that Russian term as the "upper side plate."

Upper hull overhang could be used.



Pannier would suggest more an external box/bag for stowage.

Upper side plate would simply suggest the top bit of the hull's side.

Thanks, Ricky. I had come to the same conclusion about "pannier" and "upper side plate." I found "hull overhang" used in several discussions, so that's what I'm going with.
