Armour Recognition quiz

Postby Christian Ankerstjerne » Sat Oct 10, 2009 4:08 pm

This quiz is like the 20 questions quiz, only here, the questions are limited. Everyone can ask questions, but the questions can only be from the list below, as with a real armour recognition checklist (the list should be sufficient to identify most tanks). First person to guess the tank gets to think of the next tank. Some of the questions warrent somewhat subjective answers, just as in real life (but the answer should of course be truthful ;)). Any tank can be used, as long as it was build or used during World War II. And hurry - the tank is getting closer!

  • Hull
    • Number of roadwheels
    • Roadwheel size (small, medium or large)
    • Number of return rollers
    • Roadwheel and return roller spacing (even or uneven spacing)
    • Drive wheel location (front or rear)
    • Idler wheel type (ground contact, dedicated or none)
    • Track tension (tight or hanging)
  • Superstructure
    • Sloped or vertical armour
    • Superstructure type (sectioned superstructure (as in the Pz. Kpfw. IV) or smooth transition (as in the T-34))
  • Turret
    • Sloped or vertical armour
    • Turret type (normal, fixed (as in the Bishop) or none (as in the Sturmgeschütz)
    • Turret location (front, middle or rear)
    • Gun length (short (does not extend beyond the front of the tank) or long (extends beyond the front of the tank))
    • Number of gun tube sections
    • Muzzle brake (yes or no)
    • Commander cupola (yes or no)

That sounds like a blast, when do we start?
