    Easily my favorite podcast out there. I found the episode about the leadup to the atomic bomb to be very fascinating. And of course the 5 part series about the Mongols is as cool as it gets.

    I only started listening a few months ago so I missed the atomic bomb episode. But yeah, all the Mongol episodes awesome. I also loved the Munster rebellion episode

    Shouldn't those be maltese crosses rather than the crosses they used after the start of WWII? Either way, cool find!

    Have you ever seen one of these before? It's a WWI Russian tank called the Tsar Tank

    Yeah seen pics of it. I did some request skinning for WoT so I looked up a lot of tank pics and read a few books.

    Hope you enjoy. I recommend starting with the Mongol episodes. I think they're called Wrath of the Khans.

    World of Tanks. You can pay for in game skins that everyone can see, or you can load client side skins that only you can see. I used to make the second for fun. By default the tank skins are solid colors, gray for Germany, brown for the US, green for Russia, you get the idea. Some people make hit box skins what show where the weak parts are, some make silly skins, some are obsessed with anime and My Little Pony, and some are meant to look realistic or historical. This is one I made by request; I was asked to make a Hellcat skin that had the stars and stripes on the turret http://i.imgur.com/shxB31m.jpg
