How the hell did they manage that? Does anybody know the story?
I think he swerved to avoid a rabbit.
wasn't that one a case of reversing over the vehicle to the rear?
It looks like a classic case of tank-tipping. One bloke crouches down behind it and the other guy simply pushes it. It sounds unlikely but it just takes the right flick of the wrist. Or was that a dream...?
I think it is judging by the AWOL track to the left of the pic.....
I think this accident was discussed some time ago on ARRSE. Sorry I can't give the link. Presumably was at Suffield.
Yeah looks like BATUS. Not very good drivers these tankie chaps
so how does one of the panzers end up upside down from what "seems" like a straight forward recovery? Is it the same two tanks in both pics(i know the c/s indicator says so)???
It's obvious really. The crew have tuned it upside down to get the track back on.
I'm not sure it's the same incident but that 22 is one unlucky tank
What are the chances of those getting repaired?
ref; the 2 pictures they are not the same incident. the second picture was taken on about day 3/4 of the first ever medman with CR2. COMD BATUS was not a happy chappy, especially as 5 mins later one of the other SQN tanks drove its barrel 3 feet into the ground.
are you sure? I was on that med man I remember the barrel incident but do not recall the upside down wagon
was it done during recovery?
i have no idea about the upside down tank, i just know that the 2 pictures are different incidents. the 2nd picture(where the 2 collided side into side) was taken on the first CR2 medman and to sepparate them we just drove them away from each other.
I think the first picture someone died. Note 14billy in the background.
