Progress on the FT gearbox & TSF turret
This week great strides were made on taking the TSF turret apart and recording large amounts of interesting data. Paint samples were taken and will be sent off for analysis. Welding of the fractured plates is going well.
One interesting discovery was a noticeable difference in the way the visor in the TSF turret is secured compared to the visor in the Renault FT. More to follow on this in later Inside Track editions. In addition, the rebuild of the two gearboxes for the Renault FT and TSF has begun.
