what made it easy?  the length or the girth?
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

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.

The IS3 turret looks crowded as all hel but gives a nice armor slope thickness advantage compared to the early-model-Patton.

M1 autoloader concept

designed by someone that's never had to pull maintenance on a tank before - give it more moving parts to break and take away 25% of the available hands to work on it?  ::)

Oh I understand why it's not a good idea. I just found the graphic interesting.

Also, I could be wrong but I'd heard somwhere that an experienced human loader was faster than any of the autoloaders that have been used on MBTs up to now.

Yes. I believe that is correct. The Soviets used them because it meant one less trained crewman to provide for each tank. I wonder if as they develop a smaller professional force, the Russians will move away from them.

The Russians are actually moving to a completely unmanned turret for their next generation MBT, the ARMATA or T99.
