What tier is it?

Don't these people remember what happened last time they had German tanks rolling down their countryside? I mean, have you ever seen what happens when a tank hits a kangaroo?

Been thinking about getting back into that game. Haven't played in a year or so.

I don't know, but I'm pretty sure the article says it's in Australia, and that's where it is staying.

Subby might want to actually read the article before submitting it.

Subby; it's not the last tank, just the last of that model.

I would pay a lot for a tier 0 which was just ww1 tanks.

Imagine yourself about a hundred years ago, miserable in a trench and seeing a thing like that coming toward you...  I know myself and I'm nearly certain I would have frozen in panic.

Wouldn't be too afraid. As long as you have a few spearmen handy, it's all good.

You'd have to be blinder than Anne Frank to miss that old joke.

Once again, FARKers come out in droves to prove that they are idiots.

This thread consists mostly of people beating up on someone for "missing the Austria/Australia joke", when, in fact, the person made no reference to the error in nation name (glossing over it, instead), and was making a simple point that the article says the tank is STAYING there, whereas the headline says it is RETURNING there.

It has nothing to do with the name of the country. It has to do with whether it is staying or returning.

FARKers are the stupidest people in the world except for those who live near the lower Mississippi.

It is the last German tank. This was the only model that went into serial production and actually got shot at and broke down on numerous occasions during the war.

shiat, you are correct.  Thought the Germans had two operational tanks in WWI.  Teh googling confirms the second one I was thinking about was designed in WWI but didn't enter production until after the war.

When thinking of this situation, one word comes to mind. And I'm not sure if I'd scream it or actually do it first. But rest assured, I would do both.

It's not often I'm right, but when I am, I'm man enough to admit it.

Is it one of the ones the Germans used to bomb Pearl Harbor with?
