I blame the washing machine - tank shrunk to smaller size

I encountered a French Somua S35 and wondered if it is a Char B1. Why?

The Somua S35 I captured way before in the 1940 DLC is way smaller than its french counterpart.

Take a look yourself: I don't think wrong oil, fuel or mistreatment can be responsible. So I can only assume that the washing machine is to blame for the smaller size of the captured Somua S35.

Never put tanks in the washing machine - always wash them by hand.

That's what you get when you match German efficiency with French equipment. Same punch, but in a meaner and sleeker package! ;)

You can try to use a graphic program like gimp to enlarge the image slightly, i did this with the pak 5 and 7.5 images but be careful and back up the original. Large alterations can mess things up when the unit fires or moves and make the image look a little out of focus. Such changes require more detailed work.

GFX wise you'll get often better results when you reduce size, then sharpen the resulting smaller pic a bit again. So maybe the bigger S35 could be resduced to the size of the smaller one. Just sayin' ;)
