I know I've always been a Tankie but don't know a list other than Murphy's:

1. Recoilless rifles aren't.
2. Automatic weapons aren't
3. Suppressive fire won't.
4. Friendly fire isn't.
5. If the enemy is in range, so are you.
6. Incoming fire has the right of way.
7. Never draw fire, it irritates the hell out of the
people around you.
8. Never share a foxhole with someone braver than you.
9. The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire
is incoming friendly fire.
10. No battle plan ever survives contact with the enemy.
11. The easy way is always mined.
12. Try to look unimportant, they may be low on ammo.
13. If your attack is going well, you have walked into an
ambush.
14. When you have secured an area, don't forget to tell
the enemy.
15. Never forget that the lowest bidder made your weapon.
16. Anthing that you do can get you shot, including nothing
17. Teamwork is essential; it gives them someone else to
shoot at.

Found it


YOU MIGHT BE A TANKIE IF...

1. You think a hammer is a precision instrument.

2. Your idea of a backpack march is carrying your bags from the car park to the tank line.

3. If you go to a fireworks show and feel disappointed that the noise wasn't loud enough

4. If you think the concept of dismount is the eighth deadly sin

5. If you think diesel and cordite are two of the four basic food groups.

6. If you see a monster truck stuck in the mud and say, "That's nothing', I
once had my tank buried so bad . . ."

7. If you've lost headgear due to a large calibre bullet

8. If going to the field means bringing the grill and all the kit for a
barbecue.

9. If you believed that the maker of smoke grenade launchers actually planned it so a six pack of 12oz cans would fit perfectly in each launcher.

10. If you think that light infantry are only curious looking hot spots for
machine gun practice at 800m

11. If you use cylume's to decorate your Christmas tree.

12. If you can make the transition from driving to sleeping with just the
flip of a wrist.

13. If you have ever been startled out of sleep and shouted, "On!"

14. If you think the best way to handle a fuel spill is to kick dust over it
and move out before anyone notices.

15. If you think there is no such thing as "Too much Ammo"

16. If you think a good Plan is "Move north and kill everything."

Why do you think it is plagarism? it was sent to me to post, that IS NOT plagarism. I posted as found, sorry you feel that way but I do not change or interfere with the way posts are sent, there are many mistakes on these boards, maybe you should police them all, lets just read them for the remarks that people are trying to put across.

Having a great morning actually, sun is shining world is fine, just having a small problem with num nuts like you who feel they can come on to a board and be abusive, still that must be ok in your small minded world, and you do make a habit of it do you not?

You know you are a tankie when:

You pour your brew dregs over the side and a grunt screams.

the water in your internal water tank smells mildly alcoholic (and very musty)

You ask for something hot for lunch and they put a Carlsberg can in the BV.

You put up your bivvy in BATUS and the Inf gp have ventilated it for you while taking pot shots at your bins

Jam & cheese butties with diesel fingerprint garnish make you salivate.

Your crew all chip in for custard powder gravy and coffee for the ex.

20 years later your feckin knees give in and taking a dump the size of a donkeys whatnot does not even raise an eyebrow :roll:

Here. You want military humor (sic)? It's all in here and more: I once started reading this website but gave up before I'd even scratched the surface.

It's mostly septic but also mostly universal. If you see what I mean.

You're a tanker if you've ever had a dog named 'Sabot'

You're a tanker if you've ever had the urge to open up the sunroof and stick your head out when driving.

You're a tanker if you're driving through the countryside, and automatically analyse all the terrain for firing positions.

You're a tanker if you've ever stencilled your name onto your car.

You're a tanker if you've ever given your supply sergeant a choice between going to the field for a weekend and death, and he asks for a few minutes to think it over.

Gunner-sabot-sniper is not an appropriate use of ammunition.
