No, this isn't a hack, but an introduction.
So who am I?
Well my name is David Lister (and I predate Red Dwarf!), I have the username of "Listy" on the EU server and forums, where I'm a Community Contributor.
I first got interested in Tanks aged about 11, and have been a modeler and wargamer (as in the hobby, not the company), for many years. Over the years I've been involved with the Flames Of War, the Steel Panthers: MBT and SP:World At War communities. When I was 16 I spent a year as a volunteer for a local museum working with their collection of armour.
I've been playing WOT since just after the game launched. My first contribution to world of tanks was discovering the Nuffield Assault Tank plans, which are currently the mainstay of the British tank destroyer tree.
The next big thing was starting, and keeping updated, the Pull up a chair thread. Detailing all the information about British tanks and their development we could find.
To date I've written 6 articles for World of Tanks website. Looking at British tanks. At time of writing only two of the articles have been published. These are "Dig for Victory!" and "Steel Wall Queen".
What am I doing here?
A couple of weeks back Overlord asked for people to help out with articles, and I volunteered. What I'm hoping to do here is to put up more articles that either don't fit within the scope of the WOT webpage, for example an article on armoured cars. Or there isn't enough Subject material to make a full article.
In any case I hope these Articles will be of interest, and will make you say "I did not know about that". If there's anything you want to see articles on, please do mention it. I make no promises to actually do those though, but even if I don't it might give me an idea on something to write about.
Disclaimer: I would like to emphasize I am not an employee of Wargaming, I'm just a player who has an interest in History and has volunteered to write stuff for here.
Thanks for reading.
