A tank cut in half is a pretty damn cool thing

There's never enough things cut in half. My favorite books when I was a kid were cutaway books. Everything in the world should be cut in half and put on display. Like this Leopard I tank, the democratic heir to the Panzer and Tiger tanks that made the Wehrmacht famous and the first line of defense against the Soviets. »12/17/14 6:22am12/17/14 6:22am

Mad people test a tank's brakes in the most dangerous way possible

Step 1: Line up 23 Dutch lunatics in the middle of a road. Step 2: Get someone to drive a 62.3-ton Leopard tank at full speed on that road only to activate the emergency brakes just a few meters from the 23 lunatics. There's no step 3. Just pray that you don't end up with three thousand pounds of human jam. »1/27/14 9:02pm1/27/14 9:02pm
