I saw that earlier. Used it in men of war and is a beast, bouncing every shot from an IS3.

I've seen it in person, since it's running again I reckon it'll be out for Tankfest 2012:

78 tons!

The entire top part was made in a single casting, and the gun could penetrate anything. Didnt see action in the war though, just as well, it broke everything because it was too heavy.

What's wrong with being subtle? Just yell "Boardsies Unite!!" At the top and bottom of the hour. I'm hoping to make it this year, if I do look for the tallest guy wearing a stetson.

Better than shouting "Fire!" I suppose. I'll make an effort to say hello on the day.
