    So in a book called "World War 2 In 500 Pictures" I found this thing. View attachment 24913 What exactly is this? Looks like a Modified or prototype model of T-28 to me.

    I feel I should point out, that the gentleman from Texas spelt 'Armoured' in that manner.
    We'll get you all doing it so correctly eventually. ;)

    He probably had some extra "U"s lying about unneeded and in the way, so he put to use where they wouldn't do much harm.

    Pssst....Ike have you had to turn in your Texas card?

    Maths is my favourite...Shoudnt they be called "armed" trains instead of just armoured? Isn't a turreted train still a train? So what makes a "tank" a tank instead of train carriage or fighting vehicle? The tracks...?

    They were armoured. Armoured cars had guns. Armoured cruisers had ... cruise. Etc.

    Thank you very much everyone, I had never thought that it could have been a train. Sorry i didn't reply earlier, i forgot to actually check it. For some reason i thought it'd show up in the "notifications" tab at the top.
