Not sure what to interpret from the tank name

- 1950s casual racism?? Or that particular tank was worse than the rest??

Two more same/similar in the sequence

If you leave the responsibility to me, I'll just toss a coin a couple of times ....

DSL let's get this methodical if you compare the graphics of the 3 types Crowwell (and later Centaur) had that distinct air intake behind the turret

does the one you post it have it ?

Centaur had no hull MG while the Cromwell did have it

So Cromwell?? I'll see if there's anything showing intake (or not) behind turret .....

Cromwell it is

no wonder most britsh tanks were ditched after american Sherman were available...

even in middle of war they still have bolted turrets instead of welding :o


and they had crazy designations too, here the complete one

No clear shot of rear of turret to show intake (or not). 2nd thumb is as good as it gets.
