Here's an interesting little tank. The British Archer tank destroyer. A Valentine tank chassis with a 17 pdr gun. The gun was facing the rear, the idea being that the tank would fire from a concealed position then run away! The link is at

There's all sorts of interesting vehicles on this site, plus some real dogs that are the equal of anything in Tully's "Under-performing Planes Thread". Have fun!

Interesting, thanks. I like the idea of that tank, and I see it was considered very successful. Probably by the crews, who thought so because they lived to fight another day!
Cheers!

Ladies & gentlemen, this is the captain speaking. Thankyou for choosing to fly Mandarin Airlines. Those passengers sitting on the left-hand side of the aeroplane please make yourselves comfortable. Those sitting on the right... please look to your left!

Hello Llama, feel abit self conscious talking to a star and all, saw your last film "Womb Raider" - disgusting ,and I thought you were fond of animals.

Wotcha. I've never actually seen any of the films, and I've only ever played bits of Tomb Raider 2 and 5. I was just looking for a username. Actually, it has more to do with The Emperor's New Groove (great cartoon) that Tombraider.I believe the butler still breaks wind though /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

It must have been based on an Italian design, lol.

I always remember a joke my Dad used to tell me as a kid:

'How many gears does an Italian tank have?'

'15. 1 forward and 14 in reverse!'
