Tanker's Tuesday: (The Unknown Soldier 2017)

Finnish Infantry vs Russian T-34s (The Unknown Soldier 2017)



The Unknown Soldier (Finnish: Tuntematon sotilas) is a 2017 Finnish war drama movie directed by Aku Louhimies (Tears of April) based on the novel of the same name by Väinö Linna from 1954. The film is the story of a Finnish machine gun company during the Continuation War. It shows how friendship, humor, and the will to live unite these men on their way there and back. The war changes the lives of each of the soldiers as well as the lives of those on the home front, and also leaves its mark on the entire nation. This is the third filming of the novel after the 1955 and 1985 versions. It was released for the 100th anniversary of the Finnish independence (December 6, 1917) and was shot almost entirely with natural light

Jons' Question On Kra'Vak Ships



From Jon at Ground Zero Games:

With the release of the first of the re-worked Kra’Vak ships, I wanted to ask the FT players on here about your experiences with K’V fleets (under the FB2 rules) over the years….. those of you who have played them, or played against them - what are your experiences about how they work under the current published rules? Are they over-powerful, under-powerful, about right…? Is there anything about them you’d like to see changed or tweaked? Do they give a sufficiently “different” feel to play compared with the Human fleets? Do they need any additional weapons systems?

Feel free to have a frank and open discussion - all comments, criticisms and ideas are welcome!  ;-)

Tanker's Tuesday: Top 5 Tanks, You Never Knew About





After around 6 weeks of work it's finally done. My new Top 5 video. This time were talking about 5 tanks you never knew about. I like to go out of my top pick vehicles that other people making generic top 5s would never pick. I challenge you to find another Top 5 list that even goes into half the depth i do on the vehicles within each list.
I hope you enjoy the video and that was worth the wait.
