When the war broke out in 1939, many in Britain expected a repeat of the First World War with the army joining the French in the trenches. They would build up an unbeatable material advantage and then smash the German trenches and roll on to Berlin.
The TOG 2* was an interesting hybrid of the old and the new. The tank still had no suspension, just like the original heavy tanks, but used an advanced electric transmission, while the turret mounted the brand-new 6 pdr gun. This armament was deemed too light for such a big tank, so they fitted the turret of the Challenger cruiser tankÃ¢â¬âthen being developed to carry the new 17 pdr anti-tank gunÃ¢â¬âproducing the TOG 2*.
The 17 pdr gun in the TOG 2* heavy tank has ROF 3 as a result of having two loaders and a plentiful ammunition supply immediately to hand. With its excellent anti-tank performance, the TOG 2* is an outstanding tank killer.
