I once took a swan dive off of a cliff in my Tiger 1 to get behind the Op For. It actually worked pretty well.

/ but, that was a video game.

I just recalled along a highway a few counties over, there is a tiny town with Vietnam War era moble howitzer in their 'park'.

The name on the barrel was "SPEAR CHUCKER".

I'm sure it's still there.

Probably flying a Trump flag now. Or Confederate. Same diff.

Knew a Barbadan dude that kept a spear on the wall as decor, although it was apparently quite functional.  His stated purpose was that he kept it just in case some asshole ever called him a spear chucker, he was going to make that person correct, briefly.

/to my knowledge he's never had to initiate that protocol
//but I could certainly understand the temptation
///he wasn't a small dude either - probably could get some distance on that thing

Did 'Clown Penis' make the list?

How to we not have a bunch of names on that list - or here in the comment thread - from Iain Banks' 'Culture' books?

Names like the SpaceX-popularized 'Just Read The Instructions', or others like 'No More Mr. Nice Guy'?

Eh, punny name stenciled on the barrel. Kinda cool, but not pinup gal on the nose of a bomber cool.

CSB, I used to play on the Sherman tank that was featured in the James Garner movie Tank. It was a static display in one of the city parks before it was removed and restored. Not to brag, but i was a great tank commander. I never lost a single man.
