The question "what is the best tank?" as a way of examining engineering stereotypes

Meaningful discussion outside of the potato gun realm. Projects, theories, current events. Non-productive discussion will be locked.

I found this quite interesting:



The Tank Museum's channel in general is worth looking through, a lot of illuminating material that is very well presented.

To tie with what is said in the video, I am a great admirer of what comes out the German compulsion to do things "properly" resulting in something big, complicated, beautiful and expensive. For myself however, I think it's very much the British way, aiming for something brilliant in its simplicity. At least as an aspiration :roll: sometimes chasing the simplest solution is more work that simply going with the effort to make something work.
