There was one tank versus tank battle in World War I between some A7Vs and a british unit.  According to an article I read many years ago, this british outfit's nickname was "The Fierce Rabbits".  (One has images of Beatrix Potter bunnies storming a farmhouse, or Peter Rabbit leading his droogies Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail to overthrow Farmer McGregor.)
 
At one conference in the Second World War, Monty predicted that he would leap onto a german armor unit like a "Fierce Rabbit."
George Patton had no idea what Monty was referring to and one can only guess at what he thought.

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.

I thought you hated posting Warsaw pact kit?  8)  Do the blue & red stripes on the turret signify anything?

Cool. I guess that is reactive armor kit on the turret?  I've never seen these before.  This particular style reminds me of corrugated steel for some reason.

I think the ERA is designed to explode up and out when triggered, causing any projectile to skip up and over.

Depending on ERA type, the primary effect is too blunt and disrupt the jet from a HEAT warhead and in cases of later more advanced versions also have the chance to break a long rod round and cut its ability to breach the armor underneath.
