For a second at the beginning I got really morbid and thought the Sherman was carrying killed soldiers with make shift coffins somewhere.
I thought it was a Lend-lease Sherman used as Russian mine sweeper )))
Aw they’re sleeping
Rock-a-bye soldier, in the warzone
When the Tank fires, the soldiers will pwn
When the Tank breaks, the soldiers will fall
And down will come Sherman, uptiered and all.
T-34 plows, M4 tows
lyme disease intensifies
Ah yes i sometimes forget that the tankgoes over the mine then after its blown up the part in the back sweeps em
Guarantee they would sleep in those
Actually they would have been, along with many other diseases.
Disease for a long time was the largest cause of death in the majority of wars throughout history
World war 2 was the one of the first wars to have wide scale preventative measures for soldiers, even military ships would be designed around preventing these illnesses.
Looks like it's inspired by what the Russians did in the Finnish Winter War, building sleighs that they pulled begind their tanks to get the infantry closer to the Finnish positions.
I don't think that ticks were the primary concern during WWII
Now try and turn
Thought I was on /sub/tankporn until I saw this... lol.
Soldiers arent exhausted while marching
It looks like the cables in the front of the assembly come to a single point, which is where I assume it's hooked to the tank (like a modern trailer hitch)
I don't see why this wouldn't be able to turn
They slep bois
Or gunned down when crossing a clearing
I open Reddit and this is the first post I see.
Those modifications drastically altered the tanks, all this required was a tow wire.
Imagining someone snoring away with a bunch of brambles plowing into their face.
Ghost Division was the 7th Panzer Battalion who are always ahead, as the blitzkrieg rages on and also are breaking morale the with the sound of blazing guns.
I don't know if the inflatable shermans were under any specific division, at least not to the extent that google fu can find.
It would absolutely be able to turn. It's not much different than towing a wheeled trailer. I've hauled sleds behind snowmobiles, atvs and motorcycles, they go where you go.
Can you provide source about plowing T-34 please. Thanks
Tank becomes confetti for Russian party train )))
Or in German, Boi Schlepper
that is crazy, the Russians didn't waste tanks for mine sweeping. they just marched a division through the mine field, with a machine gun squad behind them to 'help'
Whoops, sorry, my memory seems to be "shakey". In WW2, there's the "Ghost Army" who helped the Allied Forces before they stormed the beaches of Normandy.
