This time I encountered many problems when trying to identify different pieces, so this may be my weakest post of the series, I’m sorry for that. No matter what I’ll still try.

Sentry – Super Conqueror

This IR spotlight looks like the one commonly used on the Centurion tank. There’s also a camo net with the familiar “Greek-key” pattern.

Here we can see two American machine guns that we’ve seen before on different tanks – the M1919 and the M2HB. Nothing strange here as the British used American weapons too.

It’s hard to see here, but the letter K made it possible to identify those crates. There are more of them under the camo net and the words “PATTEN FOOD PRODUCTS” can be seen there. It all shows us, that those are the crates for the American WW2 K-rations, just like the ones here:

Mordred – Badger

https://preview.redd.it/q8sxyqpbiyb71.jpg?width=491&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=04137e4aff2ec1e4606189417e1ad63de6f7ac7b

This one was hard for me and I still don’t know if I got it right. The barrel looks like it is the Rheinmetall Mk 20 Rh-202 20 mm autocannon, possibly using the ammo boxes for the Hispano-Suiza HS.820 (both guns used the same ammo). No matter what gun it is, I like the fact that they got the ammo right – every fifth round in a belt is different, marked with red. That’s because the red round are the tracers. I won’t post a photo of a real gun, because as I said I’m not sure I got it.

That’s a cool detail I wanted to point out – some of the tanks have a spare wheel or two, but not the Badger. The badger has a whole spare bogie. The Badger is just built different.

I couldn’t find the exact crate (and it looks kinda small when compared to the ones I found), but the writing looks all right as you’ll see below. The helmet looks similar to the British tank crew one, the bulges on the sides seem to be a little bit too big, but that may be just the angle.

Galahad – FV4005 Stage II

https://preview.redd.it/vfjgzkgzkyb71.jpg?width=303&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=917c32c14239eecd4c0546910ac96da78220aa43

The FV4005 was based on the Centurion hull, this detail was also taken from the Centurion that was used in Egypt in 1956.

https://preview.redd.it/sw1yu188lyb71.jpg?width=558&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=6f86b7a36766876941f60a9b190abbe4726a5db4

I tried to read anything here, but the only thing I got out of it was the line “METAL CONTAINER” on the bottom of the right box, not that helpful at all. The left one looks kinda like the British C238 one.

https://preview.redd.it/nse36a3slyb71.jpg?width=323&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=50e57e3d82197e919d42f9fb1e0dedf9351acc89

This helmet right here looks like the British tanker helmet from the late WW2, which wasn’t that widely used.

https://preview.redd.it/7pk0lahxlyb71.jpg?width=359&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=90dc93b6a1bf54741743884786c223329cfae1f1

On top of the turret there’s another famous firearm – the Bren gun, mounted on a tripod. It lacks the iconic carrying handle, but the other features like the magazine and the folded bipod can be seen.

Little Bart – Conqueror Gun Carrier

https://preview.redd.it/blwmsznmmyb71.jpg?width=714&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c836608112c1492a2a982062dabfd315abf0b3dc

Another Polsten autocannon with an Oerlikon magazine, just like the one we’ve seen on the Badger in my first post. Sadly WG was mistaken when they described this style, as they simply said that it’s an Oerlikon itself. You can also see the range poles, usefull for artillery crews.

https://preview.redd.it/tapn06mknyb71.jpg?width=540&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=3ae1b0220d78355e1b6e556d2a509dc24b269608

https://preview.redd.it/yomn5fvmnyb71.jpg?width=448&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=577f642de7403d994b15f275a8654e393b99c57b

In the same description I talked about earlier WG said that this is the Bren machine gun, but it also feels like a mistake (and I’m not blaming the team that made the style, rather the team/person responsible for the article it was described in). There was a belt-fed variant of the Bren, but it looked different. The weapon right here looks more like something based on the FN MAG, there were different versions of that firearm used on the British tanks.

Conclusion

As I said, it wasn’t the best post, but I still hope it was enjoyable. Any help with the elements I wasn’t sure about is welcome!
