The Mark Felton channel on YouTube presents some interesting short videos about WWII. The Poles actually had some tanks during the invasion of Poland, though everyone thinks of the Polish cavalry. They were significantly overmatched by the Germans, with the largest number of their tanks (about 700) being small two man tankettes, weighing 2.9 tons, armed with machineguns. They did arm some of these tankettes with a high velocity 20mm cannon capable of penetrating 25 mm's of armor. Many of the German tanks, the PZKW I and II and the Czech made 35T and 38T, could be taken out by this gun and even the Panzer III and IV were vulnerable on their sides and rear. This video is about an encounter between a Polish sergeant with a 20mm armed tankette and a German unit. The Germans didn't always win.
stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.

ajman: I don't think there's gonna be anything in northern New England anytime soon, and as far as I know there hasn't been in a while, but if you're willing to drive to Connecticut there's usually some decent sized battles a couple times a year.
