I thought people might find this item to be of interest.  It's a patent on a tank held by General Gladeon M. Barnes, head of the Technical Division of the Ordnance Dept. during WW2.  It's a rather odd vehicle.  Full description and more pictures here

That crew of one... the poor sod has to literally do everything, it's worse than a normal one man turret!

We'd kind of have an idea of how this would play. Take any of the 3 crew french tanks and get 2 of the other crew members killed :3

If you go look at the full patent, it looks like it's actually a two-man tank, not one-man. Still...
