Ouch.

How the hell did they manage that? Does anybody know the story?

 
#3
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..... :wink:
 
#7
Yeah looks like BATUS. Not very good drivers these tankie chaps :D

 
#8
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)??? :?

I'm not sure it's the same incident but that 22 is one unlucky tank :D

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.
