The official AHF Equipment of Allies & Neutrals quiz

Post by Marcus » 18 Dec 2005 10:56

We've had several different quizes running here in the forum for a while with great success and as I just noticed that we don't one in this section I'm starting one here too.

The rules are very simple:
The first one to post the correct answer to a question, posts a new question (must be on the aircraft used by the Axis nations) and so on.

A question to get things started:

What model tank is this?

Hi

The Swedish flag gave it away, although I thought it may have been Finnish, at first.

So what tank and to whom does it belong?

A :)

Nope, it's definitely not a Matilda. It's that bloody Czech tank that I don't remember the name of in Iranian service.

Michael

Added: Except...if it's in Iranian service, why does it have "Republica" lettered on the hull. Hmmmm...I better think about this some more...

Hi

Sorry but no, Matilda is incorrect.

Iranian is also incorrect but the country that is pictured using the tank above was a Neutral in WW2.

Hint#1 (

There were upwards of 17 different countries that used models of this particular British tank. Picture below is a broad hint to the type.

As a guess I would have said a Vickers 6 ton tank the type B - in service with Bolivia in the Chaco War of '33 ?

My guess is the same tank Edward mentioned, but at Portuquese service?

Hi

Well done, Edward, you got the tank but not the Country.

As if there were any doubt, Juha (the "Honourary Canadian" who hasn't posted his test score yet) carrys the day with the complete answer.
