Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
When you have to cross the river...no better way.
Reminds me of driving snorkel rigged Studebaker/Reo 5-ton trucks through the surf at Onslow beach in Camp Lejeune back in 1962. Sit on the top back of the seat, lock throttle at 2,000 RPM and steer with your feet.
That sounds like fun. I'd like to think you guys finished up that adventure by firing up a beach bbq with the Swedish bikini team.
What nationality is that tank?I'm guessing that when it's out of the water that those snorkels are lowered to better conceal the tank's profile.
My kid thinks it's a Russian T-90 but isn't positive. I was happy I identified it as a tank.
I think that it's a T-90. Good call. Note the reactive armor that's more integrated than it is in earlier models.
was the cable and U bolt, in the fore ground of first picture, for when they didn't quite make it across...
