Tank Mechanic Simulator
« on: March 14, 2019, 10:32:50 AM »
This may be interesting but I'm not getting too excited about it. No firm release date given. If you always wanted to be a tank mechanic then this may be the sim for you. You can never have enough WW2 sims!  :-\

Tank Mechanic Simulator is a game about World War II tanks, their crews and their contribution in military history. As a tank museum owner your task is to recover destroyed or abandoned tanks and renovate them.

Hope I don't throw a 'monkey wrench' into this one but it's an odd theme. Still, it could be some fun especially if you get to drive your tanks through your competitors museum destroying it.  :bd:

Three of the nicest books I own are the "Tigers in Combat" series by Wolfgang Schneider that contain probably 1,500 photos of Tigers.

But rather than being "in Combat" as the titles suggest, 80 percent of the photos are of Tigers being recovered, repaired or undergoing maintenance.  One gets the clear impression that recovery, repair and maintenance, while not glamorous, was really the biggest aspect of Tiger "Combat" in World War II.

I will definitely give this title serious consideration.

I have a nephew of mine who is really into tanks, he loves all kinds of German tanks. Even has a Stug Life T-shirt, I might have to let him know about this.

I think that's an early shirt from Military History Visualized.

I've got one from their merch that says, "I'm a cat person," above a Tiger and a Panther. The nieces didn't get the joke, of course, but Bro is who got me into wargaming as kids long ago and he got it immediately.

I bought this 2-book set on a whim and found it very interesting.
