Interesting bunch of vehicles. I road in a Saracen around the base I was at once when I was in the army. The driver needed someone to stick his head out of the turret or he wasn't allowed to move the vehicle and I was it. Very nice smooth ride as I recall.

I wouldn't mind my own Flak36, ie 88mm. I have a nice place for it right out front of my house covering the bend in the road that various retards from the golf course insist on screaming around.

Might prove decently intimidating what?

That's a shame, now the ex wives and attorneys will feed on his estate.

Nope. But there's an example on show at Bovington tank museum in the UK. Tiger 131 It's called. I dearly wished I could have seen it do it's thing four years ago when my wife and I were over there on the weekend of the tank fest. But she wasn't exactly ecstatic about the idea of going out of our way to see an old German tank...
