Please don't call it an Isherman, it's bad enough people keep insisting on using the term Super Sherman.

 

Random readers will not know what a simple M-51 is.

True, but the question wasn't directed towards random readers. Plus you can always say Israeli M-51.

Ok.

 

But it is a good question. I would love to see hatches on them, and they have important info incased inside not present online (for M-51 anyways)

Indeed, I would love to see an ITCH on the M-51 as well.

Apparently some bloke has had a Panther in his basement for some years (open secret in the area), and a bored prosecutor decided to confiscate it.

Is it illegal to own a demilitarized tank in Germany?

wonder if he had it loaded with huge dum-dum rounds or maybe even what our US army uses. It's a HUGE shot gun load ! Did the German's in ww 2 have any of them?  >>>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cgn1nhUEgo8

Nice.  I had posted about this earlier today on my blog but I had not been able to find an article that had a picture of the Panther in question.  It looks in pretty decent shape, aside from the missing tracks.  I wonder what happens to it now.  I bet Kevin Wheatcroft already has his checkbook out and ready.

Didn't the Sheridan have some kind of cannister/shotgun load for its 152?  IIRC when used against infantry it was hideously effective, one could say ... truly hellish.

Humans come up with some seriously terrifying and effective ways of killing each other.

 

On the other hand, I just thought of a way to feed all the starving tribes in Africa AND get the pigeon population under control :justwait:
