    How about taking a look at that big sign in red reading:

    ‘Here be Dragons’

    and avoid that 44 page  dead end?

    But if you must – an armoured vehicle intended to take ground in the face of the enemy and engage and defeat enemy armour.

    Tracked – possibly but what about some French stuff?

    Turreted? – Swedish S Tanks?

    Irrelevant. We know a British tank when we see it. It has kit for tea making.

    So we’re agreed?  A Bren Gun Carrier is a tank, right?

    Tea- tick

    Tracked – tick

    Turreted – pass on that one we aren’t counting it

    But if you fancy engaging enemy armour with it – good for you, bags of enthusiasm. well done!

    Like Montgomery, I’m aware of the risks and I’m willing to accept one hundred per cent casualties.

    If you have a Bren Carrier and the enemy has no armoured vehicles then MGIAT!

    As to what a tank is, sometimes even the manufacturers don’t know! Behold the Guy Wheeled tank….

    Say what you like about my spiky pedantry, it certainly generates posts.

    Now, whether that’s a good or bad thing…

    I will offer my grandfather’s definition of the word “pedant.”

    “Someone who takes great pains …. and gives them to other people!” 🙂 🙂 🙂

    I think it’s a good thing NCS, I think it’s a good thing!

    I’m in total agreement with this.

     

     

     

     

    What does MGIAT mean?

    Since this thread has gotten all philosophical this might apply:

    PS: Centurion is the most British tank of WW2, because it was too late to do any good, which is just so British.

    Tanks

    One is good, more is better

    The chart is too good not to borrow 🙂
    It is my entire justification for the MGIAT in one simple jpeg 🙂

    1. Sherman.

    2. Universal Carrier.

     

    Nothing else passes the 10,000 mark.
