Where is that, like Las Vegas?  She (?) is the Liberace of prostitutes.

No. It's a backhoe with a big engine, equal sized tires, road-going suspension, and bullet-proof glass.

I bet all the Middle East countries love us for this. In 10 years time, they get a new fleet of 60 MPH backhoes, because it will cost too much to ship them back.

Perfect.

Was looking for the same thing, but you stomped me too it though (with better pic).

Nice.

X-Mas card list... made.

Call me when it does 60 MPH while digging.

It's got to go fast so it can keep ahead of the convoys filling up holes on the road from explosives. Eh?

I remember the day we traded our D7s (and the specially trained heavy equipment operators who ran them) for those and squad of engineers who didn't know the first damn thing about heavy equipment, digging operations, etc.

Lost Thought 00: So basically it's just a tank with no gun


Tanks actually move pretty slow. 50 mph is really really fast for a tank. I base this on the game World of Tanks; where the fastest I've ever gone in a tank is 70 kph.

/ 43 mph in English

iheartscotch: 50 mph is really really fast for a tank


50mph is BLAZING farkING FAST under battlefield conditions.  Making a coordinated move of men and materiel across a battlefield on anything less than a paved highway at 20 or 30mph is pretty out farking standing.  Hell, even convoys on highways tend to top out around 45mph before they just can't keep it together anymore.

Too soon?  It was like 10 years ago already.  That's a long time to mourn the stupid.

Exactly. None of this logistics stuff. Just a big boom and move on.

I would be interested in seeing the engineering of the suspension. Seems unlikely to be stable at that speed.
