Anyone know what happened here?  :o



Probably a top-down attack EFP warhead-equipped ATGM like the BGM-71F TOW.

contractor test for the ATGM.  if I remember right there was some trouble over how much explosive was packed into the turret and hull while trying to simulate a combat load out for the tank.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

My wife and I have been in North Carolina for the past week.  Today we drove home.  I decided to avoid the mess of I-95 and drive through through central Virginia, mostly on highway 29.  Right after crossing the border from NC to VA was the small town of Danville VA, and we saw a sign for a tank museum.  We had plenty of time, and my wife almost insisted that we stop since she knew it was something I'd be interested in. 

The museum is a bit funky with lots of rules (including a metal detector at the entrance), and a prohibition against flash photography in case it might harm the CARC paint on the vehicles.  There was a T-34 and an Panzer Mk IV, lots of Pattons and APCs (including one for sale for $30k), and a few cold-war Soviet tanks.  It was worth the hour detour and the $12 admission, but not sure I'd drive roundtrip from DC (about four hours each way) for it.  Has anybody else been there?

Man, all those nice square pockets on the turret to catch shells...  ???

And the pic of the T-90... does that show sloping turret armour directly into the turret ring?  ???

When did the Russian get so bad at tank design?

My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

My wife insists that it says dyslexia but what does she know.
