Do you mean type 95 ha-go (light) or type 95 ro-go (heavy)?

I get a hunch that it is the former somehow. With its miniscule 6-13mm armor does it really matter much where you place the thicker parts? Logically the front and tower will be thicker.

Andy,

Peter Chamberlain & Chris Ellis in their Tanks of the World 1915-1945 cite the Type 95 Ha-Go as having "6-12mm" of armor, they did not break it down by facing/turret. I have a number of tactical armor rule sets (Tractics, Tanks!, TSR's Panzer, et.al. that site facing and in some cases turret values) but not sure I'd consider those as "references" for the information you're looking for (and they're buried in boxes...somewhere around here...).

Chamberlain also cites the Ro-Go noted above, but not likely of interest as it seems only one experimental Ro-Go was built (in 1934), never produced.

If you want me to see if I can dig up what other game(s) have cited here, let me know and I'll hunt through the boxes.

Kevin

Andy,

sorry no help with the tanks but i never noticed where you were from before. What a beautiful place. We drove by there last year on the way form Oban to Glasgow. Had a nice lunch at a place on Loch Lommond.

You probably don't miss all the American tourists that didn't come this year.

I echo the feelings. I have hiked a part of the West Highland Way from Drymen near Alexandria up to Tyndrum some 20 years ago. Fond memories of this beautiful area - skinny-dipping in Loch Lommond included . Spent the last three days of this vacation trip at London - interesting as well, but much less appreciated. If it hadn't been for the IWM and HMS Belfast...

Man! I hope it was August. That lake is deep and cold. Otherwise there must have been a lot of shrinkage going on.

South London - what are you thinking???? Truth be told it is undergoing a great revitalization. Borough market, Southwark, great views of the Thames. Still not sure if I would want to wander into Elephant & Castle after dark though.

Just saying.

I spent a long weekend in London once. It was New Years! It beat the hell where I was for most of Christmas Day.

London is a great city. A good place to spend New Years. Although I suspect there will be pub attrition in the current world. The wife and I flew into Sydney on New Years day a 'few' years ago. People were still in the streets as we landed around 7am. Every Aussie I have ever known knows how to work hard and play hard. Long flight though. Before the current environment I think Quantas was figuring out a direst flight from Dallas or Houston to Sydney. Not sure that will fly anymore. But Sydney (like London) is an awesome place - and they serve Victoria bitter

Best part of Sydney is the road south to where Vic Bitter comes from!!!

South London, my lot came from Rotherhithe in the late 1840's, no convicts in family. Ships deserters to the Ballarat goldfields.

PS. I love how people have been to Sydney/Gold Coast/Perth and say they love Australia. Its like going to LA and forming an opinion on the whole USA.

I read something, I don't know if it is true or not, that an Australian spent at least a month touring in the USA. He started in LA and ended up in New York City. He was asked what he like best about the United States. The person asking expected him to say something about either a city or various parts of the country that he had been to. His response? "The bloody, bottomless cup of coffee!"

OZ is huge. We were there for three weeks. Got Sydney, Melbourne, Brissy and then some time out on Lizard island, which is on the Great Barrier reef. Fun flight, 7 seater, a barefoot pilot, no co-pilot, and the runway at Lizard is basically U-shaped, high on both ends but a decent dip in the middle. But a great resort, and the lizards abound. Also a cool research station on the island. And the diving is great. I would go back and try to get Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, Darwin. And then get to New Zealand while 'in the neighborhood'.

I would also like to get to a lot of the Pacific islands at some point, but those logistics require AE like planning.

One of my cousins had the right idea, being a Tradie he didnt have problems picking up work and he spent about 15 months crossing the USA.
Bought a gigantic convertible (We call them Yank Tanks)and spent a month here, a month there.
Really the only way to see anywhere.

Now that I am retired that could work. Though the 5 dogs might be a problem. A couple of them don't really care for autos. And unless I can afford a private plane, they are not going into the hold on commercial. Lost one that way on a trip from London to NY. One of the worst days of my life. Maybe ship. Maybe ark, maybe balloon. But not commercial airlines.

With the level of passenger traffic these days, you could probably bargain for six seats in first class for you and your dogs. You get to have their free drinks too!

Dont even think about your dogs, they wont enjoy the substantial quarantine.

Come to think of it, you arent going to be allowed access into a Covid free country for a few years

I like the idea of first class seats for me and the furries. And OZ won't want my visitor dollars? I could get a test before getting on the plane. though unless I can get one out of Newark, I'm not really willing to go to JFK.

Although I only made it to Perth via our anchoring at Fremantle in 1986, I distinctly remember thinking that Australians are, as a group, the friendliest people I have ever been around. Total strangers on the street saying "g-day" over and over. I wasn't in uniform either.
I remember visiting Tactics game shop and buying West End Games' RAF, a solitaire Battle of Britain title (now owned by Decision Games). Played the hell out of that one over the years, good, nail-biting fun!

I personally cant see us allowing any tourists in from the USA, Europe and most of Asia before the end of 2021.
The virus is under control here, very small pockets that get stomped on quickly, unlike the 100,000+ per day in the USA or Europe.
I'm afraid your $$$ are not wanted that much.

The dollars probably are wanted but not the people who may be infected.

Spot on!!!
We cannot afford to allow anyone from such a Covid ridden area into Australia. Even Aussie citizens returning have to isolate at a Govt nominated location at their cost for 14 days.

Dont plan on this changing much before a proven vaccine is in place. Maybe a bubble with NZ and other Pacific islands

Oversea tourist $$$ are partially replaced by locals holidaying in OZ, too many have been to Bali but havent seen 5% of their own country.

Maybe your best bet for a holiday is somewhere in the USA.

PS Irelands numbers are worse than the USA so you cant wave your Green passport yet.

Late September and Loch Lomond was so cold I was afraid the shrinkage might be permanent.

South London, my lot came from Rotherhithe in the late 1840's.


Made a short family trip to London last year for the Boxing Day Sales, some quick sight-seeing and to give the kids the occasion to practice their English. In order to max the available funds for shopping, economies concerning accomodation had to be made. We found a very affordable studio for rent for a few days at Rotherhithe. Not the nicest area of London for sure, but it looks like lots of efforts have been made to restructure it after the docks closed down. Still, lots of old brick housing around, some still showing the marks of the Blitz bombings. Spent a splendid evening in the "Ship and Whale" pub near the Greenland Dock with nice locals telling us more about the history of Rotherhithe, the indispensable fish'n'chips and a few pints of "Spitfire" ale and lager - so I can now brag back at home that I have crossed the channel and downed a couple of Spitfires . Looks like it was the last trip for some time, a few weeks later the Corona virus started to hit Europe, and since March I'm doing homeoffice and have rarely ventured far from home due to lock-down.
