Gotta love those tiny details! #30

Another post about just one time – this time the T42 with it’s style created in collaboration with Amazon and is inspired by their show “The Boys”

To be honest I don’t own this tank and the style itself isn’t even listed on WoT wiki for some reason, so I kinda forgot about it. Yesterday I recalled that it exists and realized that it should be included now, but I know nothing about the show… So I started watching. I’m halfway through the first season and I have to say – it’s way better than I expected it to be, I enjoyed it quite a lot so far.

The Big Ride – T42

The whole style is full of quotes referencing the series, with probably the most known – “NEVER MEET YOUR HEROES” – written on the barrel.

The power drill, used pretty early in the first season, together with some C4. There are multiple patterns of C4 packages in real life, but this seems to be one of them.

Multiple pieces of equipment, you would see some of them on a real tank, but some are just cool references – tank crews usually don’t have baseball bats, at least not placed like that.

The art taken from promo shot for the season 2 of the show, together with the name of the style, which is also the title of the first episode of the season (sorry for the emblem again, this time it messed it up really bad).

An ammo box for 7,62 NATO cartridges. “PITTSBURG” seen here is also one of the references to the series. The box contains 1500 rounds for something you’ll see in a while.

According to the writing on the box it may be used for the M134 Minigun… And that’s exactly what you can see here.

More references to the show, I won’t spoil too much, but I can see a camera, a detonator and a box made of zinc (with something rather interesting inside), all of them appeared in the first season.

A weapon rack with some firearms. We can see an FN P90 TR, two M4A1s and an IMI Tavor TAR-21. All of them appeared in the show.

Another weapon – a Serbu BFG-50A sniper rifle, also used in the first season. You can also see some dolls of The Seven, a group of superheroes from the show. It’s interesting, because dolls like that were shown in a deleted scene, made to look like a commercial. You can see it here.

More references to The Boys – Hughie, Frenchie and Mother’s Milk. In the first screenshot you can also see a C-Ration box, I believe that I found the exact same one the designer used for the model, the white strips are just the same, there’s even that black line to the right of the letter C.

Conclusion

I know that there are way more references to the show, but I think that I mentioned most of the coolest details. As for the rest of them – I’m aware that I probably just missed some of them, but I left some out on purpose to not spoil the show for anyone. So this time please don’t point out things that I missed in the comments, unless you’re sure that they can’t be considered spoilers.
