Having a Bad Tank Day...
« on: July 21, 2021, 05:06:45 am »
Youtube channel Cone Of Arc has done a couple of vids on bad movie tanks that make interesting viewing for a whiffer:

Top Ten Cursed Movie Tanks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OL4CBFl99k

Lots of other interesting/amusing stuff on his channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1_oUtCGIqUMbIyRPeJsSyw
Including his "Cursed By Design" series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgZo_Ac00jc&list=PLW8JzDrsS3_tTLjF0gzSq3l40sUPWUdHa

ConeOfArc again, this time with Frank Tinsley's amphibious tank concept from 1950:

I'd say he'd gone wa-ay past smoking; he'd gone into dermal absorption, ingesting & injecting, as well as smoking, all simultaneously!

That design would work well for Lunar or Mars exploration. Just needs a larger cabin.

And somewhere to store the fuel and air, food and other necessary equipment.

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

With two guys, five guns and an engine in there, the whole thing is the boiling vessel...
