Those people either have b&$&s of steel or are totally nuts, maybe both. But it was still pretty cool. Germany makes a fine machine.

So that's what did they did with our last tanks......

We had great tank batallions, now it's all been lost to budget cuts.

There are far more Leos out there than M1s

Yeah, I think the gas guzzler of the m1 puts off most armies on tighter budgets. Either way you end up with a fine tank.

Lol, you're good.

Btw,(not directed at you) they call this a brake test, but it is a demo, if it were a test those people wouldn't be standing there.

Just so you know, you bought your main battle tank from germany, then made some small updates and called it your own

Ehm, what makes you think that I don't know which country built the LEO and how does it take away anything from the factual information I shared?

The Netherlands had quite a strong tank force for such a small country and it is gone now for the most part.

Also, we bought the tanks so I think we could call them our tanks. Noone ever claimed we built them. We also use American apaches. I guess they are not ours either.

Smart S fail?

a modern MTB can stop a LOT faster than that - road and tracks damage be dammed

Yea, that guy back row, 3rd from left he does look a bit spooked. I bet something came down the pike in that boys pants. I would assume adult undergarments we criteria for being on that back row. If it's a mechanical piece of machinery....Germany wins hands down. Really some of the best mechanical engineers in the world.

UK engineering companies were all minimised and sjipped out to china. All my present tools were made In Germany. the Best Tool Engineers in Europe if not the World.

I'm sure they rehearsed it several times but even with that I'm sure some of them Pissed themselves as you can see one or two of them had to look anyway ...

Thanks, hi Jinx!

Well let´s hope this place is big enough for the both of us.






PS didn't know where you were from,


Sure....

You weren´t talking about the Netherlands? It was completely obvious from my comment that I am Dutch.

But good save!

See you around.
