The LGBT element of the Australian Army has now been allocated two tanks for its own use. The tanks will be properly camouflaged as soon as the tins of LGBT rainbow paint are delivered.

Meanwhile, they are using a test rig to practice their own exclusive combat manoeuvre, which will bring terror into the hearts of all straight infantrymen on the battlefield.

Theoretically promising, the silencer showed a critical flaw when subjected to a side by side test.

The mod kit also included a large container of Preparation H - for that extra realism.

The Mark II was intended to have a weatherproof fur surround, but this was withdrawn at an early design stage.
