  2. I knew the day would come when you'd post a thread I actually enjoyed - bloody well done and well over due!

    The caption, 'Ops, my bad!' just doesnt do the picies justice!
     
  3. Excellent - previously thought my missus was a bad driver... :D

    Now we just need a breakdown on a nationality basis.... (purely for p!ss taking purposes of course :D )

  4. Mostly American M1Abrams, from what I could determine. 3rd pic down is Israeli Merkava. However the 4th down, sitting upside down "No.22" marked one, is that a Challenger? the gun mantlet looks similar?
     
  5. It is a Challenger and someone died in it.
     
  6. Post removed as I couldn't get the pic to work.
     
  7. That has got to be the worst recovery operation I have ever seen, you needed no more than one hook(recovery vehicle) to get that back on the road, instead they used 3, 2 trying to pull the vehicle apart and the other one actuall y appling force in the right direction - shocking!

  8. You're kidding, right? you saw the slope the tank was on?

    Why take the risk of a slide down the hill or a rollover when you could have a stay cable attached?

    NTM
     
  9. Good point, on that loose surface, unless he was able to easily get it pointing down he ran the risk of throwing a track or overturning.
     
  10. Thanks for that. I loved the palm tree one. Load of soldiers standing around, an armoured (Caterpilar D6?) bulldozer parked in the background..

    ....and one arab with a shovel about to dig it out all by himself.
