Of a tank coming to full stop. Fucking scumbag media is all in 'outrage' mode.

While I might not be the smartest move I feel it is for the army itself to asses the risk and bitch about it.

If tanks are good at one thing, it's stopping.

Fuck that noise.

Naw, hayall naw!

If it wasn't for the Dutch army there would have been no media.


Sometimes I wish these soldiers would just turn the cheek when these idiots are at risk.

Bah, easy to set up stunt,



and it stopped with a good 10 feet to spare.

I kind of assumed the stopping distance for a tank is pretty well known and it at least looks like he left some room

And you can bet they practiced stopping that tank on a particular spot without the people there.

With the tank?

why does anyone care, how does this even make the news

pussy liberal media, that's how
Link Posted: 1/28/2014 5:12:08 AM EDT
Hard to believe it took only 4 takes to get that right.  On a side not, the Dutch military has 69 new openings for anyone interested in joining up.  
Link Posted: 1/28/2014 5:15:59 AM EDT
I was waiting for a muzzle brake test.  Seriously........I thought the tank was going to fire a round off with those dudes under the muzzle.  That would have been awesome!!!!!!
Link Posted: 1/28/2014 5:17:18 AM EDT
I assumed thier union approved this so I'm OKwith it.
Link Posted: 1/28/2014 5:17:18 AM EDT

two for flinching!




Link Posted: 1/28/2014 5:22:07 AM EDT
No different in my opinion to sky diving, bungee jumping or human wing suit flying.

It was a calculated risk, coupled with faith in a mechanical object performing as designed and a little luck.

I bet the thrill / elation for those standing there was off the charts when they realized they survived.

I wouldn't do it but tanks can stop quickly. It be a function  uh dat surface area of the tracks an dat friction, yo.

Same here, and she looks like she needs company at the end of the video.

We sold em all to the Fins So you better bush up on your Suomi to communicate with your new overlords.

On the other hand we will have NO tanks left so I'll be brushing up on my German

That looked like some dumbass stunt the Russians would pull.

Is that something their top brass approved or just some NCO or captain who's about to be retired?

I wouldn't think that part of the world would be big into tank warfare, at least locally?



It has been many years ago, but the last time I was on your side of the pond I got to drive from Trondheim to Stockholm via Lillihammer and Oslo, and I didn't see much "tank country". Between the steep terrain and heavy forests in the highlands, and the wet, marshy ground riddled with ponds, lakes and streams in the lowlands it would seem like a tankers nightmare to me.

The south of Sweden is fairly open, especially Scania.

In other parts of the country tanks would be used to cut off certain choke points, primarily between lakes that restrict enemy movement. The Finns would operate in pretty much the same way.
