800 bucks of Vengeance by Sanity-X 800 bucks of Vengeance by Sanity-X
Sometimes overkill is the order of the day, even if it does cost $800 a shell. >:D Another sketch doodle thang from my sketchbook, just to explore the slightly whacky circumstances of my version of the Nuclear Apocalypse Scenario.

I shall write the dialog here, because damn if I can read my own handwriting sometimes... XP

I should write more. With a pencil. Or pen, that works too.

Anna : There he is... The sly cheating bastard...

Anna : Range 2100, wind's at 15 mph north by northwest... Aim for the head for epic damage.

Elga : Roger that. Is this really necessary though? It was just 5 bucks...

Anna : Sure it is, Elga.

Anna : No one f*%@# with us...

Inspector : That's not a pistol wound... Killer must've used a rifle...

Policeman : I agree... Could be a fifty cal.

Actually it's more like 3000€ a shell. I know since I was is the tank core- but the inert practice rounds are only around 1000 so you're not that much off- :D

Really? I've got my data from here [link] , but I guess you have more credibility than I do on the subject~ ^_^

What tanks have you served in?

ps: Gawd... At 3000€, she just shot a small car into that poor guys head...

In the same company with Leopard 2's, but I was a driver for a MTLB/V. I sincerely hope you never have to drive one of those things, it totally sucks(not the Leo, that's actually easier to drive than your average car) If you want to know what it is, try wikipedia:

I have also been in about every single tank that the Finnish defence forces have(mainly Leo variants, T-55, and MTLB variants and self- propelled artillery)

A small car would do less damage- :D

Wow, you're quite the tanker~ You rock old school, PenUser! ^o^

Hmmm... A few questions if you may~ Are those steering rods on russian as hard to use as they say they are? And how does one drive with the hatches up? Do you raise the seat or something?

I laughed so hard when I read your last question! :D It's hilarious!!!

The steering rods on the old russian tanks, hard to use... yes. Very much so. That is because when you are driving forward, the rods are in front position, pulling the right one will slow down the right track, so you turn that way. Same with the left. Doesn't sound too complicated, eh? Well now is the hard part for your logic, because when you're driving in reverse the pattern is inverted. So while reversing, pulling the right rod will result in steering left- and pulling the left one will steer to right. But that's not all, since there is the second position for the reverse gear, which makes the tank go faster in reverse. That means pulling both rods as far back as you can. In this situation the steering is once again inverted, so if you want to go right, it means you'll have to push the right rod forward. So it's kinda like going forward, except that you have to push the rods instead of pulling them. So the whole pattern is inverted twice from going forward to going fast in reverse.

Yeah, not complicated. But actually you can't see anything from the cabin, so you'll have to rely on your tank commander's commands on where to steer. And on top of all that, the gearbox is really old- fashion and the gear change is manual, plus the gearbox is reversed to what it would be in your normal car. So the gears are all in opposite places. And even more on that: the clutch is mechanical, non synchronized version- so when you change you have to push the clutch pedal twice while changing the gear upwards, and while changing down you also have to press the gas pedal in between.

And yeah, you get pissed off if you have to do that when the heater doesn't work and it's -20 celcius outside, snowing.:(

And now the answer to the question I found so hilarious, driving while the hatch is up. No, you don't raise the seat. Instead, you stand on the floor, while operating the three pedals with one foot. I've only done that a couple of times, because the hatch is evil and wants to break your teeth if you try it while off- roading. So I only recommend that on flat surface. :)

Sorry for the long explanation...^^;

Hahah, thanks for the in-depth answers, PenUser~ It's not long at all! XD

God, I thought driving with the hatch up was comfy! How is it with the german armour though?
