  2. Oh that is cool! I have jumped them and gotten decent air, but not a drift like that.

    1. Yeah - we had a crew do that at Yakima - with an M60 - didn't do too much damage to the tank but sent the entire crew to the dispensary........;-)

    Wouldn't the ability to completely control power/direction to each tread facilitate this type of maneuver? Just conjecture, been driven in tanks but never been driver. have worked skid steer bobs a bit.

  4. I have done that on multiple occasions in an M113 APC. On ice, snow and on dirt tank trails. Once you figure out the laterals it's pretty fun and controllable, to an extent.

  5. Now if that cannon barrel had stayed on 'target lock' all the way through that slide I'd of been mightily impressed. Hope their sentence wasn't too severe.

  8. Several of us instructors used to have our trainees do this on mud in the driver training area at Fort Knox, circa 1973.
