M1T tank elevation modifications

Post by saracen » Mon Jan 04, 2016 11:57 am

Has anyone done any mods on the elevation gear of a Mark-1 tank ?

I have an IS-2 and want to try and firm up the elevation on it.

I'd like to have it run from a servo but with some form of aluminium framework to hold the trunnions, rather than having the pivots in the cast turret as at present.

It has a very long fibreglass barrel, which is made worse by having a metal muzzle brake at the end, so that it has quite a bouncy gun when on the move, and there's quite a lot of lateral movement in the gun mounting as well.

Adrian.
