So I'm wanting to start my own mods for making a servo recoil or using the Clark ones.
I know that Clark has their universal recoil units in both short and long versions. But does anyone have any details/specs on what the actual recoil travel distances were on various tanks?

You mean on the actual tank ? I don't think that is easy to find. If you mean on the scale tank, then it all depends on how the barrel and the mantlet are setup.

Oh I agree with the servo use, just the distance travelled varies depending on the arm, angles, and travel of the servo.

If you are talking about scale tank then you can see the difference between the "long" universal recoil from Clark vs their standard ones, basically assumming you have the barrel travel, it is just simply how many teeth on the gear you can get in one recoil cycle.

This probably falls more into the category of what things looked like in reality vs what looks good in scale. If you can see it when your tank fires, and doesn't look overly silly it should be ok! Smile I'd be more concerned if you went to all the trouble of measuring recoil distance from battle footage and then you can't see the effect from 15 feet away.
