Instead of Content, We Have a Bit of Tankery


The U.S. Army testing its Mark 8 tank during WW1. Note that the 57mm gun sponsons are retracted in some of the shots. Note too that the music sucks, you should mute it and listen to this instead. 

And here is a clever way of increasing the trench-crossing capability of the Renault tanks the U.S. actually used in WW1.

2 Mauser, now that you mention it, adding some actual trench obstacles to a few a maps could be interesting.  Some of those highly mobile tanks are rather short, so they might have trouble crossing them.  For really wide trenches, you'd need a TOG...

3 Normandy IIRC has a lot of tank obstacles, and a few other have lines of tank traps. I think they avoid outright trenches because half the team would flip over with the new physics.
