Wasn't the Jumbo a heavily armored M4 with 76mm gun?

Or a Boeing 747   8).

You're quite right! For some reason, I associated the nickname with the 105mm armed close support variant.

The photo source suggested it was a 105 as well BoB.
My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

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

Also, the one in the original pic has Horizontal Volute suspension, so a later 105 variant as well

the nerd is strong here.   :notworthy:
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.

So it does - same chassis as the M4A3E8.

I'd be the nerd happily counting.
“Most gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don’t find out until too late that he’s been playing with two queens all along”.  Terry Pratchett.

During filming of Airplane, Leslie Nielsen used a whoopee cushion to keep the cast off-balance. Hays said that Nielsen "played that thing like a maestro"

Tallulah Bankhead: "I'll come and make love to you at five o'clock. If I'm late, start without me."

"When all other trusts fail, turn to Flashman." — Abraham Lincoln.

"I have enjoyed very warm relations with my two husbands."
"With your eyes closed?"
"That helped."  Lauren Bacall

Master Chiefs are sneaky, dastardly, and snarky miscreants who thrive on the tears of Ensigns and belly dancers.   Admiral Gerry Bogan.
