T-43 Leopardo Medium Tank
[ img ]

The T-43 was a Venezuelan medium tank deployed during World War II on the South American and European Fronts from mid-1943 to its end in 1945. The T-43 was intended to counter the German Tiger and Panther and to replace the T-40. Nevertheless, it served alongside the latter and the heavier T-45 until the end of the war. It is considered one of the best tanks of World War II for its excellent firepower and protection and reliability. The T-43 was born out of a project started in 1939 to replace the T-40 Puma which was still in testing. The initial requirements of the called for a fully tracked vehicle weighing 20 tonnes and design proposals by CENARECA, CVA, MDB and IPV ensued. These designs were abandoned and IPV dropped out of the competition entirely as the requirements increased to a vehicle weighing 30 tonnes, a direct reaction to the encounters with the German Tiger I tank. The Tiger I outclassed the existing Venezuelan tanks and the situation became worst when Venezuelan and Brazilian intelligence discovered that the Tiger was being built in Argentina along with the up gunned Panzer IVs. At the insistence of the high command, a special tank commission was created to assess the Tiger. CVA, which designed the successful T-40 were given the task of designing a new 30- to 35-tonne tank, designated Modelo 120A, by February 1943. Development of the T-43 received a major boost in March when three Tigers were captured at the battle of Puerto Suarez in Paraguay, the Tigers were immediately shipped to Bogota for testing. The information gathered by the tests greatly influenced the development of the new Venezuelan tanks and as a result the new vehicles beard a great resemblance to their German counterparts. The main concern was the Tigers armor, to defeat it CAVIM developed the C43 long barreled 76mm gun capable of penetrating the Tigers frontal armor.
The first T-43s started to reach frontline units in December 1943 on the Argentinian border where they faced the Panzer IV and the Tiger, proving to be more than a match for both tanks. The Panzer IV proved to be completely ineffective against the T-43 not managing to pierce its armor at anything but dangerously close range while the Tiger had greater difficulty dealing with the tank especially at longer ranges where the T-43s angled frontal armor proved almost invulnerable to the 88mm gun while the 76mm gun on the other hand had no problem penetrating the Tigers frontal armor. The appearance of the new German tanks like the Panther and later the King Tiger prompted the development of an up gunned T-43, development went at a very fast pace thanks to the engineer’s foresight, the designers had designed the tanks in such a way that it could be easily up gunned and by March 1944 testing of the new variant armed with a 90mm gun had begun and by May 1944 they were already in service with frontline units.

T-44 León Heavy Tank
[ img ]

The T-44 León was a Venezuelan heavy tank of World War II deployed from 1944 in South America and Europe usually in independent heavy tank battalions. The T-44 gave the Venezuelan Army its first armoured fighting vehicle capable of countering the German Tiger. The heavy tank was designed with thick armour to counter German 88 mm guns and carried a main gun capable of defeating Tiger and Panther tanks. Development of a heavy tank began in 1939 when the Venezuelan Army issued requirements for a tank in the 30-35 tonne range but the capture of a German Tiger tank in 1943 led to a decision to develop a new heavy tank. But before the new design had time to mature, intense tank fighting in the summer of 1943 demanded a response.

In order to reduce development time, engineers took the main features that made German tanks superior and applied them to their own designs allowing them to come up with designs that could match their German rivals in capabilities but avoiding the problems that had plagued German tanks such complexity, unreliability and time consuming production. Among the key features adopted by Venezuelan engineers were overlapping road wheels and the 88 mm gun which was copied by CAVIM and developed into the C44 90mm high velocity gun, Venezuelan designers also adopted the sloping armour concept first seen on Soviet tanks. When the T-44 tank went into combat in South America with the Venezuelan Army in February of 1944, it increased the advantage of Venezuelan armor over German and Argentinean armor and was much superior to the lighter German tanks in service.

Great tanks KIKE! My only suggestion for the León would be the addition of a commander's machine gun for anti-aircraft. Otherwise, both tanks look like very well-balanced designs.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Dassault Mirage F1 VNAF
[ img ]

In 1971, South Vietnam began looking for a replacement for its older F-5s and A-1s as a result of South Vietnamese intelligence reports that revealed the North Vietnamese were receiving considerable amounts of equipment from the Soviet Union including the latest Mig-21 variants, Su-17s and Mig-23s. On the 16th July 1972, Dassault and SNECMA announced a technical cooperation agreement with South Vietnam for the license manufacture of the Mirage F1 and engine. The intention being to produce up to 100 Mirage F1’s. Delivery began on 5 May 1976 when two Mirage F1CV’s were flown to South Vietnam in a VNAF C-130 Hercules. Vietnamese Mirage F1s were used intensively for interception and ground attack. In November 1976, a Mirage F1 accounted for the first North Vietnamese Mig-23 to be shot down, followed by several more in the following months, giving the previously timid Vietnamese Air Force new confidence in air-to-air combat engagements with the North Vietnamese.

That's a nice idea, I don't think I've ever seen a what-if VNAF Mirage before.

Yes, what-if VNAF Mirage is a Shipbucket first.
