I am Kun, member of a start up company ravenworks. We are planning to develop a turn base modern war game with a bit of manga twist. I will need to illustrate  15 types of units for each of the items such as BMT tanks, APC, infantry, attack helicopters, artillery etc. There will be a hundred of illustration needed. Can you contact me on ravenworks2014@gmail.com.

You should make a " Churchill Crocodile "  spiting flames into building and all it would be awsome.

I know this comment is old, but I feel like answering: this seems to be a Sherman Firefly from 2nd Warsaw Armoured Brigade of Polish Armed Forces in the West. The yellow name Rycerz I on its side is Polish for Knight I.

As Kogr pointed out, ony one in 4 tanks had the 17 pounder uprated gun which was longer, so they painted the front to hide it from a distance to stop them being targeted first. Possibly one of the most powerful tank guns in large circulation when it was origionaly put on the firefly.

In my opinion the 17 pounder gun was better than the American 76mm.

It's not the common to see tank's rear. I got to say, the sherman's rear is an awesome sight.

nice one.. you even put in the blue marking by the muzzle of the 17 pounder gun. It was meant to make the gun look smaller and hence not attract german shells by sticking out as the firefly.

Excellent work sir!! :D :+fav:

Although the Firefly is very well done, it's the grass I particularly like. :)

Zawsze uważałem, że czołg/i pośród morza trawy to piękny widok.
