^Did that tank turret crash through the roof? o0

I think so, here is another one.



looks like the same style turret.

If i ever see that on a tank, and they tell me to drive it into combat i think i will refuse. Seems like it goes up in quite a bang when hit.

A German "MULTI" heavy truck with additional armour, carrying an 18-man transportation container in Afghanistan.

You sure that thing is German?

Looks like someone's been busy with the German flag stickers.  :D

about the tank: T72 variant?
The back of the turret looks similar. and it was the most common tank there.

That would indeed be a safe bet, but i think T54 is also likely.

Whilst German artillery and anti-tank tactics were extremely effective, the most effective weapon against the tanks was their own engines.  It wasn't uncommon for over half of the tanks deployed to break down before they had even reached their start lines, much less combat.

At first the tanks did indeed broke down, but things changed alot and in 1917 and 1918 the "tank" was finnanly being truly combat effective

AT Cambrai in 1917, half of the tanks never reached the start line due to engine break down.  By the 4th day, less than 10% of the tanks were active.

But my 8th grade history book which had a full 5 paragraphs on WWI said the British tanks and American soldiers broke the back of the Kaiser and beat the Hun! (American history book mind you)

We never did get past 1920 in history class (started at the French revolution, before that wasn't important I guess), but I read the 1900-2000 part of the book about 5 times, the WWI & WWII at least 10 times though :P

Tanks didn't win the war, but the American surge of power (2,000,000 troops in the front lines) did.  Especially when the Meuse Argonne Offensive smashed through the German flank, cut their rail lines, and starved all their troops north of Verdun of supplies, reinforcement, and ammo, forcing them to begin the long fighting retreat to their border.
