Possible reinforcements?

I also own a number of non-Soviet and non-German Corgi tanks. These are four Sherman and two Churchill tanks.



Both types of tank were supplied to the Soviets and it is therefore feasible that I could use them to reinforce my existing 'stock' of Soviet armour. On the other hand I could use them to create some British and/or American tank units, and I can foresee the possibility of pitting the Shermans against the T34s in a post-war conflict (e.g. Israel vs. Egypt).

  1. Re using the Shermans post war, not sure how many (if any) 75mm Shermans would have been used by Israel - were they all 76mm ones?

  3. Xaltotun of Python,

    I was thinking of the 1956 Arab-Israeli War, when 'standard' Shermans were used by the Israelis. By 1967 I think that they had upgraded all their Shermans to 76mm main guns.

    All the best,

  4. Don M,

    I also tend to favour that option as well.

    All the best,
