QuoteThe EPG21 should have the Russian 57mm ZIS2 gun from pack SVA3, picture shows a 57mm 6pdr in both EPG20 and EPG21
QuoteLooking forward to seeing some of these...looks like a great range. Can I ask is there any plan to do the Jordanians from around 67?
QuoteThese ranges are under the "Post War" section of the website - the associated vehicles are in the "Modern" section. I most humbly suggest they be in the same place?
QuoteAny reason there seem to be two packs of RPD LMG in the Syrian army pack and none in the Egyptian army pack?
Quote from: sultanbev on 20 June 2022, 02:38:16 PMThe Egyptian 6pdr was the British one,https://api.parliament.uk/historic-hansard/commons/1956/nov/21/egypt-captured-equipmentand by all appearances the Israeli one has the muzzle break. (wiki)Interesting that the Egyptian 3.7" AA guns had AP ammo....
Quote from: Leon on 20 June 2022, 01:35:21 PMAll in the same place now, the relevant vehicles should appear below the ranges for all 3 nations. Adding items to a different website category can be done on the new site but it's a bit of a chew, so we left it to do this morning.
Quote from: sultanbev on 20 June 2022, 03:45:14 PMHave found that the IDF used both the Mk.II 57mmL43 6pdr and Mk.IV 57mmL50 6pdr, including ex-Dutch ones, so British models would be fine for the 6pdr. It is clear that the Egyptians used both 6pdr and Russian 57mm ZIS2 even in the same areas.

Quote from: Sunray on 24 June 2022, 09:02:50 PMShort answer Edward is no. I checked this out for Leon when he was designing the range. RD Jones in Janes Infantry Weapons(Egypt) omits any mention of PK. I think it was Laffin in Osprey suggests that this may have been because the SG43 was built under licence in Egypt and popular because it was soldier proof,as well as that national pride factor.Sources suggest the Syrians adopted the PK after the 73 war, as part of Soviet sponsored rearmament.
Quote from: Lord Kermit of Birkenhead on 21 June 2022, 08:59:58 AMThe Israelis deliberately used M48's and Shermans against the Jordainians to avoid blue on blue, but no doubt Nobby will be doing that.
