No need to fret, guys.. Just look for the shelf with the Tartan paint and it will be there beside it.

What on earth??

(Off to Wikipedia . . . )

Okay, it looks like a ZBD-05?

Also, never believe what you read on Wikipedia. From the article above: "The vehicle can run at a maximum road speed of 65 km/h and 45km/h in the water."  65 on road? Yeah, okay. 45 on the water? Nope, never gonna happen.

This 150cc Vespa scooter is fitted with a US-made M20 75mm recoilless rifle.  It was designed for the French TAP (“Troupes Aeroportees) in the 1950s as a way of giving them light airportable anti-tank firepower.  They were designed to be used in pairs, one scooter carrying the gun and the other than ammunition.  The recoilless rifle was never intended to be fired from the scooter, but from a tripod adapted from that for a .50 calibre MG, also carried on the scooter.

This M4 Sherman has been the victim of a rather spectacular internal explosion. The tank has been blown apart along the weld lines, giving us a good look at the size of the armoured panels that made up the hull.
This photograph belonged to James Douglas Moon and was most likely taken in North Africa. Originally a member of the Herefordshire Regiment, he was commissioned into the 47th (Oldham) Royal Tank Regiment in July 1941 and transferred to the Warwickshire Yeomanry when the 47th was disbanded at the end of 1942.



Anyone else want to paint "2020" on this?

I share this because I loved the caption.

‘Ally Ooop III’ powers through the snow of north-west Europe during the winter of 1944-45. The M24 Chaffee light tank was a replacement for the outdated M3 and M5 Stuart. It was more powerfully armed and more mobile, but its main advantage, according to James Clark of the 5th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards, was that ‘unlike the Sherman it looked like a tank should look rather than the illegitimate child of a farm tractor.’

Yes. I don't think I'll ever look at a Sherman in the same way again.
