The AAV's are unique to the Marine Corps amphibious assault capabilities, it's our specialty! The AAVP7 has the weapons station, there's a C variant AAVC7 which is a comm operations based vehicle, it only used a M60 since that vehicle was usually far away from where the grunts get dropped off at. Then there's the AAVR variant, the recovery vehicle. Same deal, it carried a M60 but didn't even have a turret hatch, there's a crane that takes up that spot.


Great pic that I found of the R next to a C variant.



To me, a tank has a huge main gun, usually in access of 100mm diameter and has heavy armor plating and usually some type of reactive armor plating to offset a direct hit from a RPG , sagger or other anti-tank weapon. Some tanks could be outfitted with a deep water fording kit, but that just allowed it to drive on the bottom of a shallow lake. There are definite limitations on how deep a tank can ford some water because tanks don't float. Just too damn heavy and don't have a hull shape that lends itself to buoyancy.
Thanks for the info

"Double tank? Tandem tank? 2xTrack"


I think i have seen that one in some RTS game i have played back in the day.
Too bad the individual drives are not articulated, which it would need if it was not designed by a game designer but instead a real world ommpa loompa of science.

My friend sold his 1/8 M1A1 tank.

Now, if someone was banging away on a 60-cal and they were firing the main gun of the tank in that picture, you could sum up the whole thing with one word...

I've come to brighten up this Tank thread

The brightest rainbow I think I've ever seen, right before sunset so the light was hitting it about as straight on as possible.
