Looks like a tank to me.
Looks like a "Walt" bush pretending to be a tank.
Looks like a Merkava to me.


Abrahams? 50 cal on the lid is a clue
looks similar to a leclerc - but its hard because Ive only every seen em going backwards before. Must be the only one the french have with forward gears.

Doesn't the Merk have dangly, bobbly, chainy things hanging twixt turrent and hull?

Possibly a South Korean Type 88K1 ?
The Tankie thinks this might be right as well.

I'm just the messenger...
None of the above, lads.

It's a Japanese Type-90, with the dozer/scraping blade mounted up front in the raised position. The pintle .50 cal with the chute is pretty distinctive.
What looks like a sloping turret front is actually the 'shooting star' insignia of the Fuji Tank School Brigade. (Possibly 2nd Company), which, combined with the foilage, really gets confusing.

Now, who's buying my pint?


PS: What's with the 'Abrahams' business? "Abrams". No 'h's, two syllables.

Stopped bothering with spelling when you lot stopped bothering with numbering sequentially and logically and started to recycle names and numbers for bits of kit. There can only be 1 M1 and it shouldnt be a Tank, if the last was an M60 or was that an excuse for a GPMG then the next should follow on numerically! And you lot accuse us of having confusing systems!
No, California Tanker is spot, apparently its a Jap' type 90 i would never have guessed that in a hundred years, thanks for all the help guys, and kudos to CT... :)
