  1. AMX-13. French POS light tank. Good enough as a stationary target on the gunnery range but most unsatisfactory for all other purposes.

    Freanch-made AMX-15 light tanks. Could run away MUCH faster than regular tanks.

    I cannot begin to fathom the temp inside a tank, in battle, in a 120 degree desert.

      My son was a tanker who spent some time in the Middle East. He had to laugh about some of the local tanks run by bigwigs – they had air conditioning installed on them.

    I doubt Rommel was even a minute late for lunch that day.

    If that was in California, there’d be a couple of tweakers out there with a crescent wrench, set of quarter-inch drive sockets and a propane torch, tryin’ to take those apart so they could haul ’em off for scrap.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
