Daily Rant #3 The IS-III

In today’s daily rant we make a few corrections on the recent Tank Chat video on the Soviet IS-III Heavy Tank. We do greatly enjoy the Tank Chat series and have much respect for the good work that the Tank Museum does in preserving and educating the public about historic AFVs.

Daily Rant #2 Why the Stug?

In this daily rant episode we take issue with a point made in a recent video from Lindybeige on the StuG III.

Occasionally we recieve emails from people trying to contact The Chieftain through our website. Just a reminder, we post things we think are of interest to those wanting to learn about tanks and armored vehicles. Just because we post something here, that does not mean we own it or have a relationship with the people who do own it. The only videos we own are the ones that come from the Tank and AFV news youtube channel.

Author Profile: Col Robert Icks

We shot this short video a couple days ago taking a look at tank author and researcher Col. Robert Icks.  Icks (1900-1985) was one of the first people to write extensively on the topic of tanks and armored vehicles.  His work would inspire many other researchers and writers to explore the topic.
