Turret balls?
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Turret balls?

A member on the 11th Cav Nam forum writes:

"The Military Channel's Tank Rebuild tonight had the Isle of Wight Military Museum crew rebuilding a Comet tank. The crew had problems removing the mantlet, and the crew leader mentioned it was "absolute stupidity" or "absolute idiocy" to put turret balls beneath the mantle. What is a turret ball?"

I saw this episode but missed that aspect, other than the problems with mantlet removal. What sayeth the forum about "turret balls"?

The only ''turret balls'' I know are the large ball-bearings used in the turret ring (Leopard 2).

"Bolts" (not balls) was the word.

A bit of an accent wouldn't you say? Laughing I've seen that episode a million times. Mr. Green
