Here's a thing, basically an agricultural tractor mounted with 6 106mm recoiless rifles firing those beehive rounds mentioned earlier.

NVA often shat themselves and ran when it turned up. Smart move.



I had the instruction book/field guide/whatever for this thing for a long time. Something that seemed odd about it at the time was that it can go up a steeper hill in reverse than forward.

Probably. It seemed a lot more weird at the time though. I want to say that it also had a manual transmission and the steering controls looked like it was a real pain to drive, but I don't remember why I came up with that opinion. It was before I learned to drive myself, so who knows if I was right or not.

Am I understanding that right in that the driver's position was essentially fixed to the base in that it rotated counter to the turret's rotation? If so, there's no way you'll convince me that graphic is to scale AND that the tank is only 6' tall.
