Tank Accidents! - Part 2


"QUANTUM SHOT" #360

Also read Part 1

Not every tank likes a challenge

In a curious reversal of roles, the powerful and frightening tanks depicted here are not so threatening any more. In fact, they are downright in distress - either flipped by a sleight of fate, or mired in spectacular amount of dirt. Overwhelmed... and definitely not invincible.

Lamborghini Tank:





This Soviet armored vehicle has an extra set of tracks, which are only deployed when the going gets tough. Otherwise, the tracks are lifted to assure high speed of the vehicle.

In some places even graffiti confirms the tank's hard life:

Just to nitpick, many of those are Armored Personnel Carriers (BMP-1s and BMP-2s, looks like), rather than tanks.

The lack of an Extremely Large Turreted Gun is the giveaway there.

(Things with an Extremely Large Non-Turreted Gun are mobile artillery, not tanks either.)

A man in Texas I knew lost a D9 Cat (very similar to a tank but no gun) in a Gulf Coast salt marsh. The only thing that was left was bubbles and the operator swam for his life. The company wrote the thing off 'cause there was nothing that could go and retrieve it.

Flipped over tanks look so sad.. and adorable! Kinda like ED-209 in Robocop, when he trips on the stairs. Poor ED-209!

Wonder how many were proceeded by the phrase:

"Here, hold my beer; hey y'all watch this!"?
