  • Support assuming diagram accuracy. Very good quality illustration. Diliff | (Talk) (Contribs) 17:57, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Support Very detailed diagram for an svg. My only concern is that the line pointing at the return roller does seem to get lost crossing a large portion of the tank. --victorrocha (talk) 19:06, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose unless it's better sourced. You have a source for the design from that picture... but there needs to be some source for the labels. It doesn't have to be perfect but there should be something to reference for them. (Otherwise I'd definitely support.) gren グレン 21:00, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Fair enough. n00b: how would I show that a source applies specifically to this image? Can I place a comment on the image description? Dhatfield (talk) 21:27, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Yes, you can cite a source or link directly to a website from the image description. Papa Lima Whiskey (talk) 22:39, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
  • I thought some of the terms were more technical than they appear to be so sourcing isn't as important for such generic and obvious terms--but, still a good thing. One more thing. The spikes on the inside of the track on the photo seem to go through the middle of the wheel and not on the inside of the wheel as in the SVG. Is there any way you can fix that? gren グレン 01:24, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
  • References added to image, thanks Trekphiler. Dhatfield (talk) 05:50, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Well spotted on the teeth. The road wheels are also double thickness as shown in the new version. Dhatfield (talk) 06:37, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Excellent. It'd be nice if you could just add page numbers if you have them to the references. I've already supported this but page numbers would still be nice. Great job on this. One of the best SVGs around. gren グレン 02:05, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Comment. I don't see this image actually being used in the tank article. Kaldari (talk) 22:13, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
  • You could make the whole thing a lot more legible by spacing the labels out more evenly, e.g. the label for commander's gun is unnecessarily cramped with a lot of whitespace to its left. There are other examples of this. You may find that once you have done that, you may also be able to use larger type. Papa Lima Whiskey (talk) 09:31, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
  • I reorganised and increased the text size. The text is now legible in context. Dhatfield (talk) 11:52, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Support. Excellent SVG diagram, and it even uses web safe fonts! Kaldari (talk) 14:45, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Support Very well done! Clegs (talk) 22:43, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Support but fyi, the bottom of the "g" in "Engine Air Intake" is cut off when I view in (nominal) full size, but looks fine in thumb and smaller views. Could just be Firefox. Matt Deres (talk) 00:07, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
  • ...or a minor rendering glitch. This is not reproducible outside of WP - really impressive that you caught this. Dhatfield (talk) 15:24, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Support strongly, really well done. 72.94.13.165 (talk) 02:04, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
  • STRONG SUPPORT Very well done, very encyclopedic, plus it simply looks cool ;) Λua∫Wise (Operibus anteire) 08:00, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Comment: On the track on the right side, the links appear to be falling off (Near the caption with "link"). Also, shouldn't there be links on the inside of the left track? I'm not sure, and was just wondering. Oh, and by the way, Support. SpencerT♦C 11:05, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Links inserted on the inside of the far track and minor shading changes to far track. I've changed the links on the right so that they're not 'falling off'. Technically, there are two connecting rods per link, but putting those in is one step too far for me. Dhatfield (talk) 15:24, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Support very well done diagram. Cat-five - talk 08:36, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Support saw this over at the graphics lab and had to stop by to support. Very well done SVG. §hep¡Talk to me!
  • Support A nice, clear and useful image which meets the criteria. Nick Dowling (talk) 00:57, 14 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Support A very nice image, with very relevant visual information for Tank. However, perhaps some armor faces should be mentioned, as well? In many Tank-related articles words such as 'matlet' (or mantel) and 'toe glacis', et cetera, are mentioned and some users may not know what these surface areas correspond to? Would this be worthy enough to add? Sorry, I didn't notice it on the image! JonCatalan (talk) 19:57, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
