A little something for the weekend?? Sun, 26 June 2011 10:05
I know we have the internet and a marvellous resource in the DOW website, but I asked myself today - what about a magazine?

It could cover all sorts of activity linked to DOW products. personally I would like to see it simply focussed on M44.

Tactics, hints, suggestions readers wives (sorry thats another weekend publication Embarassed

In the style of an exam question - Memoir 44 magazine, discuss!

Good thinking!
It could be published online (even if it will be on DOW site as News). And could contain any informations about tournaments, reviews, photos etc.
Also could contain WWII calendar with battles marked and other important notes.

How about an astrology Your Memoir Stars section? For example:

LEO - with Uranus rising you should expect surprises (your opponent has the Barrrage card). Now is the time to be bold and venture onto new horizons (give Memoir Online a go!). Some good fortune will come your way (the next card is Ambush). Laughing

I can rely on you AP to lower the tone.

A simple yes or no thanks would have done Very Happy

So which tank is will be next Januarys Calendar pin up Razz Laughing Razz ?

How about this one
http://www.afv-news.com/wp-content/forum-image-uploads/tanks/M18-Hellcat/3313769593_5cb17fbbe6_o.jpg

The M18 Hellcat first hit production in 1944 and appeared in the infamous Ardennes offensive. This lightly armoured but highly maneuverable "Foxy Lady" used an aircooled radial engine which during the subzero temperatures mean't it was usually warmer to sleep outside the tank, as the engine just drew in the icey cold air of winter.

So i think you will agree Januarys pin up was a skimpily clad, hard hitting, Ice maiden Smile

You're right Tank Commander. I think the magazine editors will need to put together an 8-page cut-out-and-keep TD Special suppliment - free with Issue 1. Laughing

Might as well give in.

Why limit it to Tanks. Surely an armoured vehicle pin up would be less discriminating and would allow diversification

thank you Razz

Hey, I'm game! I'd go for that, if it were available online or in the small town bookstore out here in Missouri! Laughing

This could be the TOM (Tank of the Month)

Agghh no of all the tanks in all the world and i pick a TD. Laughing

So here is one for February and an appropriate one for the month. Some tales say the design was presented to the war office on February 14th 1938 whilst others claim it was named after Sir John Valentine Carden, the man who led the development of the A10, the tank it was based on.



http://www.wwiivehicles.com/unitedkingdom/infantry/infantry-mk-iii-valentine/infantry-mk-iii-valentine-04.png

This Sweetheart saw most of her action in North Africa, first appearing during Operation Crusader. Although generally praised for her realiability and armour for the the time, she was regarded as under gunned and slow.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/22/Valentine_II_in_Kubinka.jpg/300px-

The Valentine remained in production until April 1944, becoming Britain's most-produced tank during the war with over 8000 of them manufactured Britain and Canada. They were the Commonwealth's main export to the Soviet Union under the Lend-lease Act, with over 3000 sent, appearing primarily at the battle of Moscow, October 41 - January 42.

There are fixed gun and specialised variants of this tank but I have avoided these as some readers might find the images a little too hardcore Razz Very Happy Laughing


So with her small main weapon and use in the desert and the snows of a Moscow winter I think you will agree February's pin up enjoys extreme weather but is a little slow with not much up top Shocked Laughing

Definitely why not. But you have to find some good authors etc. And maybe it could be about WW2 completely or with some space, not only M'44.

Its other failing was that in most versins it only had 2 men in the turret, so it was undermanned. THey had to drop one of the crew to increase the gun size. In the black and white picture it has a 75mm gun so equivalent to a Sherman or a Chruchill
