So let me get this straight. A 30 ton tank parks behind some bushes and waits for a speeding car. One comes along doing about 90 mph. The tank
driver pops the clutch and starts rambling down the highway in hot pursuit. After several minutes, he reaches a top speed of about 45 mph. The
speeder notices flashing lights several miles back and, knowing he's busted, pulls over to the curb and waits for the tank officer to catch up.
While waiting he is able to squeeze in a bag lunch and a short nap before the officer arrives to mete out justice.
Yeah ... it could happen.
Okay, first, read the thread before posting....as in thisguyrighthere found the story and helped clarify everything.....
Second, do you have any clue how fast these things can go?.......I'm an old tanker, and the M-A1 of the 90s could travel at 70-80 mph full bore,
easy. That is a 72 ton tank, these are light armored personnel carriers designed to be light, fast, and maneuverable. Sorry, but unless you have any
idea what the capabilities are of a vehicle, keep your comments to yourself. Do you think the military units would use these vehicles in wartime if
they putted along, seriously?
Third, have you ever been caught in a highway mass trap?.......They highway patrol will use a pace car, a light plane to clock speed, and then five
miles down the road, a funnel into a road block. This would be an effective vehicle in that situation....
