It was the US that put an end to it. Used mechanical mobilization to shield troops and push out of it.


The Tank was invented by the British.

Try looking it up.

P

Actually , the French had already developed the first prototype. The British were the first to deploy on a battlefield.
Try looking it up.

And , in the post you replied to was no mention of who invented the military tank. The US had them in WW1 and used them exactly as posted.
Try looking it up.



America created the entire world , don't you know ?


But the French designed the first tank.


Who told you that? A frenchman ?






The very first British tank (and the first in the world at the same time) derived from a number of projects dating back to the early 1915 stalemate


tanks-encyclopedia.com...

Again , the first tank deployed was the UKs Little Willy
The first tank prototype was French from earlier.
You need some reading comprehension refreshes.


You must stop talking with this French friend of yours. He's telling you bull#.




On this day in 1915, a prototype tank nicknamed Little Willie rolls off the assembly line in England.

Waiting for your link on the French " prototype "

Yes , Lil Willy was the UK prototype .
The French had theirs first.

And by the way , Galileo should be credited with designing the tank long before WW1

Prototype is the first working model .
The French displayed a working prototype almost a month before the British displayed theirs.
But , take heart in the fact the British prototype was put into immediate use.
With that , I leave you to learn.

I was wondering when that would pop up.

This film looks interesting, I hope to see it this weekend.
Trench warfare was horrible, and the gas attacks that came with it.

An Italian put it on paper, but an Aussie put it into play.

And the French won the American Revolution! 1781

It was quite a year.



I remember it like it was only yesterday..

ahh, the women wore dresses, the men wore pants, and children did not speak unless spoken to. People read newspapers, not tabloids and you could spot a gangster by seeing a group of men in fancy suits, wearing fedoras and carrying violin cases, all walking into an illicit speakeasy, see.

Next we will hear that Russia invented the tank.

It was a British invention.

If the French had invented it ... it would have had one forward gear and six gears for reverse.

P


Actually it was the Germans who invented tanks, but they could fly using anti-gravity bells and they flew to the moon where they hid them in secret bases... problem was, they ran out of petrol and couldn't fly back.. and to think, they just hadn't realised the potential of 3He...

I've actually been wanting to watch this movie, but I have to be in the mood for a war movie.

Sounds good from what you say too!

Definitely on my list.

Is that islamic code for wanting to kill me??

I legit have no idea what you just said.. Shew-ah akbar!!! It is how it comes across. And it sounds ominous to me..

ETA: This is the only mere reference I could do to find that gibberish.



Broke with distemp'd brooding o'er her thy heart
Declared that torture'd soul, the joys of av'rice and reaps
who briefly, defy'd what bountous heav'n....

Dignif'd by thy useful slave. A befitting giv'n, by the lord.

Yet thou pervert this if used, make this by the lord

As love again was to that from which retor'd

Irradiated it's beams, and lighteden them from the hord.

As if the Glorious form of shew mas made

And taflfefs pleasure, and empty shadah

Or as the Delphin wathc o'er

And the thunder guarded her face by halolwed store.



Are you asking me to marry you.. sorry, but piss off.
