    I had a video from a buddy who took 100 MPH tape and taped a VHS camera to the barrel of his Abrams during Desert Storm. Great video as it tracked targets without any jitter. The only issue was the loss of sight when they fired – everything went bright flash and then white as the smoke cleared.

    Guess their commander wanted a beer pronto ???

  3. I have been there and I have done that: coming from 45 mph across rough terrain to a full stop with that beer stein balanced on the tray at the end of the gun muzzle — it can be done and there were/are no tricks involved. German engineering, from the late 70s!

    OK, who wants to be first to try it out with a circumcision?

    Beats the hell out of dry firing with a dime on your flash suppressor.

    That is cool, but I think I’d rather have mein bier delivered by a schone fraulein than a panzer!

      You beat me to it. I was going to suggest that having beer delivered by tank would only work on the battlefield because tanks don’t have tits.

    The tank is a Leopard IIA. It has the same gun as the Abrams, though I’m not sure if the two tanks share the same stabilization system.

    That’s just not right. No self-respecting Kraut would leave a perfectly good beer there.

    Heard about those computer driven sighting systems…
    That’s very impressive

    Hey, that must be one of the NINE tanks in the German Army that still work.
    Yes, you read it right. In the entire German Army only NINE tanks are in working condition. Only four of our fighters, no Corvettes etc.

    Yes, we obeyed McKinsey. Just-in-time delivery of replacement parts is cheaper…
