Sounds quite frightening and scary, indeed

There is an old joke on this matter:
General staff of one of the (above) Baltic superpowers is planning an offensive at Russia.
"And the tanks will attack from the left flank" - suggests one of the generals. "All of them at once?" asks another one. "No, first will go No. 1 and a minute later - No. 2".
