  1. I know I shouldn’t but I really do love these. Why do I end up liking machines of war?

    • I totally agree. Like a guilty pleasure. I think it’s the power in them, because I also love trains. Maybe it’s the history, the men who drove them, the stories they tell, or something.

      • Nope, can’t even say it’s anything vaguely lovely like the thought of the men who drove them. I just love the machines. The tanks, jets, helicopters, etc.
        I think you’re right about the power bit, as I’m also a bit of a truck, tractor, etc fan.

  2. Powerful.

  3. I’m sure you researched this experimental tank so I won’t go into it…but it is a rare piece of machinery, I believe. And the life story of the real Sgt. York after his rise to fame was a bit sad…

  4. It looks awesome. Looks like it could really do some damage.
