This one is a bit image-heavy which is why I'm not transcribing here, and has almost nothing to do with tanks at all. However, if you wish to be slightly amused, hop over to the portal article.

I like Bob. The tank glider is nice, too. (from a standpoint of looks and not practicality, of course)

I have seen the glider tank idea, but the others are intresting.

I want the amphibious M18.

The little scooters with side parcel cart saw considerable use in defense plants and some large airbases.
Somewhere I have pics of my grandad hooning around on one.( Okinawa IIRC)
