    80% correct. This time I actually knew some answers and managed to guess rest.

    60%.

    But I claim 70% as the PzKpfw III was in service throughout the war as well. :wink: :)

    60%, but I didn't know Churchill's quote, or British tank nomenclatura.

    I guessed at the number of tubes on a Sherman rocket launcher, and couldn't remember how that Tiger allowed itself to get captured.

    I think David is right about the question with the Pz III, though!

    Hi David,

    But only until the war in Europe ended - Matildas remained in service until the end of WW II.

    Cheers, Gerry

    Hi,

    Thanks to Brian, I am reminded that the British had an experimental SP not named after a member of the British clergy. She is the Alecto named after one of the Furies of Greek mythology.
    Here is a photo of her: http://www.northirishhorse.org/images/v ... to-SPG.jpg
    The words ‘deployed during the war’ have been added to the quiz question.

    Okey its not Panzer III cause I guessed that and was wrong. I donno why the British would keep a Matilda in service considering it was armed with just 1 machine gun, definitely not the T-34 nor the Sherman. So what hell is the answer?

    BTW I got 60%

    It was the Matilda I think.

    They were certainly in France in 1940 and it would not surprise me that they were still being made in 45 as the Brits had a tendency to make stuff not becuase it was good, but becuase it was easier.

    Besides they shipped a lot of their junk off to Russia and the Pacific war.

    Gunter.

    The Matilda II is the tank in question & it had a 2Pdr as well!

    I am aware of the Matilda II but the question says Matilda. It would be like say Panzerkampfwagen VIE(Tiger) when you ment Panzerkampfwagen VI B (King Tiger). I remain convinced the question as worded is flawed.

    80% (though the wording of some of the questions is quite poor, which would have gotten me 90% had it been clearer).
