British Mark IV Tank. Captured by Germans. Nov - 1917.



Cool pic. I notice that the guns have been removed. I wonder if it broke down and the British stripped it of all goodies before leaving it behind.

Also, I think its a 'female' in which case it would have only been armed with MG's.

Spelk used this videpo in his TOAW IV AAR. It's well worth a watch (and Spelk's AAR is well worth a read)

VT-1 or 2, never produced. The Germans decided they were happy enough with the Leo2.

BoB,
they need to make a movie about a bunch of greybeards, like us, who thwart an alien invasion with Tiger 131... The idea is totally stolen from the movie Battleship... but whatever.
Where we'd get the ammunition from I don't know...
