Tank Biathalon

Russia: 1 tank – China, 2 tank – Armenia, 3 tank – Kuwait

    Well, “A” for effort Kuwait…tanks don’t handle like Lambos apparently.

    Tank transmissions are not often amenable to high-speed manoeuvres on gravel roads.
    And always ford the water obstacle; it is not possible to plane across.

      Not wanting to start too harsh of an argument here, but some tanks are outfitted with snorkels:

      • Minicapt

        On the Leopard, we had a lever which would close the air intakes in the engine compartment, and pull in air through the turret hatch. In addition, there is a sealing ring, which is inflated to seal the turret ring from water. Both devices are traditionally activated prior to entering the water. We also carried a short snorkel which mounted over the CC’s hatch, this allowed wading to about 3m of water.
        The wave over top of the tank indicates abysmal crew supervision. Similarly rolling a tank on a flat road.
        And if the Russians have not improved the T-72 transmission, it is not suitable for high-speed turns; neither was the Leopard C1.

    • Raymond Cameron

      In a museum.

        Actually, during the Pierre Trudeau days, his putrid government considered doing away with all the tanks in our army.

      Waiting for a chance to take out these pieces of junk.

    Oh boy that russian guy uses foul language. Funny clip, though.

  • Blacksmith

    First tank; sharted their shorts but made it through ok.

    Second tank not smart enough to be scared of what they have done to themselves and their tank will die early in battle.

    Third tank splattered shit all over the inside of that tank and will take weeks to clean out.
