"In difficult situations I usually think to myself 'what would the Air Force do?"

It says right here: "Tank is suitable for inverted operation." But what does "Usable capacity 87 liters" mean?.

"Here's the spec list."
Russian Tanks (updated 2023)
No brakes, no protection, no reverse gear, no communications, very useful for exploding up to three mines before stopping. One token round included in starter kit.

"Hang on then, so what button did you say you pushed, Hoskins?"

I’d heard this term “daisy cutter”, so I thought we’d give it a try.

Having returned to his beloved Lada in Croydon,

Treadigaph was disappointed to discover just how easy it was for the local Scroat to steal his catalytic converter.

Said this is to prevent the MET from clamping or towing away ..

The tank test driver disproved that Bae's claim their new improved version could easily transverse a 85.5 degree slope. So the designer knelt down with his management team to brainstorm what went wrong....totally ignoring the shouts and banging for HELP...

Hoskinski how do you think the training went?
Well it was OK until I tried the barrel roll!
Hoskinski it’s a tank not a plane.
Oh is that where I went wrong.

I don't think when the Captain said that he wanted us to roll into town he meant this.
