1. Count of Crisco

    Standardized British tank. 1942.

    So I have recently developed an interest in tanks. Started to play world of tanks a few months back and then wanted to know more about the machines I was playing, and by extension the nations and armies which built them. And I have noticed something which I find rather odd. With one very...
  2. Earliest Decolonisation dates for a no-WWI/WWII British Empire?

    Air Power : Battle in the Skies

    Anybody heard of this old 90s DOS flight sim from Rowan Software ? It's basically a hard fantasy version of Crimson Skies. With dieselpunkish monarchies and whatnot (kind of like some of the older projects Krall has made for his...
