I assume you all know about the band Sabaton...or you are unworthy of WoT!

 

However, you whippersnappers probably haven't heard of Horton.  The Sabaton of their generation!

Given your name...that does not surprise me!  OLD GEEZER DETECTED!  (we know our own)

 

However, I should put the Sabaton Bismarck video for completeness...

Plus one for the music folks.  Iron Maiden does a pretty good job too, but Horton definitely was a master of the subject/theme.

True here's one more that kinda fits the theme.  More importantly the cover features a tank. :)

 

US version as the UK/Europe one had a different song list.
