TagTank Week

Skip the intro, let me read the articles.

Years ago Discovery started Shark Week. Sharknados aside, we have nothing against sharks. We just like tanks and AFVs better.

Tanks and Armored Fighting Vehicles. From the earliest incarnations of H.G. Wells “Land Ironclad” to the most current Main Battle Tank, we’re all interested in tanks. 

Hence, Tank Week.

We read up on tank history, we’re interested to see how tank armor holds up in Mosul, Raqqa, and  Marawi. We play World of Tanks, watch tank movies, and enjoy tank-related fiction, from Buettner’s Overkill to (duh) Hammer’s Slammers.

It seems only reasonable that we dedicate a week or so to tanks and tank-related topics every year or two. Hopefully, our readers agree.
