    I know what you're thinking re: the helmet on the guy on the right. The Free State Army actually had that pattern of headgear until about 1941.

    They have a few old Defence Forces vehicles at the National Transport Museum in Howth if you're in Dublin. I worked there for a summer when i was 16....29 years ago.

    Thus indicating that an otherwise simple journey has been rendered complicated by an unnecessary detour (I trust this clarifies the matter).

    The Finns used this tactic vs the Russians IIRC- railway sleepers into the tracks will disable/ remove the tracks from the rollers. takes some guts ( and strength) to do this

    None of these things are actual tanks. 1st self propelled gun
    2nd armoured personal carrier
    Another self propelled gun
    I don't know what the last thing is.

    We've covered this already, we're having the civilian definition of tanks which is anything with tracks and a big gun.

    And some armoured personnel carriers.

    And some armoured cars.

    And whatever else we fancy. :D

    You can buy them now (for £85), and Titans. Reintroduced some cool old sub-factions too by the looks of things. Though afaik the wider GW lore world has gone even further down the shitter. End times in fantasy battles and the like.
