    Um, yes. Because I've never seen the film (except for maybe 20 minutes or so). But my mates all talk about it, and do Odball impressions. So I worked it out from that... :grin:
    Okay, what tank is this? I should have been nasty and just posted the front and rear views, I'm not giving a side view since that would make it far too easy.

    It looks like a Sherman variant to me.I don't know the story on this tank,but I'd say it's definately a Sherman.

    Correct! I suppose the hatches gave it away.
    It's an M4 Impoved, apparently proposed but not fielded (I got Hunnicutt's book on the Sherman last week, and this one was new to me - I thought somebody might have said it was T-34 variant :cry: )

    Hatches, bow, hull MG, mantlet, rear hull shape all gave it away. However I thought "some obscure Pantherized M4 variant" wouldn't be precise enough. :wink:

    They were fast and mechanized but with a little bit more armor than cars. :D :wink:

    Yep. I have a poster of a WW2 M-18 painting titled "The Hellcats!" and at the bottom is a slogan "Buick builds the Hellcat".

    I wish our scanner was bigger. :x

    OK,I thought of a question.
    What does the Polish 7TP and the Russian T-26 have in common?

    They're both rip-offs *ahem* locally-maunfactured copies of the Vickers 6 tonner which didn't sell in the UK. Also used by Brazil(?) in the Gran Chaco war.

    Not counting any actually built by Christie, i.e. non-US, name three different tanks (of differing nationalities) that used Christie suspension.

    I can only think of Russian (T34) and British (Crusader, Cromwell) tanks...
