Reading the storyline it seems to be a remake of Herman Melville's 'Moby [edited]', the legendary white whale that evades the Nantucket whalers until Captain Ahab sets sail on a personal mission to get revenge on it.

 

Edit: I can't believe one of the worlds great novels can have it's title auto 'edited' . It is of course the word that is short for 'Richard' and the first name of the noted highwayman Turpin. You could also knock the 'er' off Dicker for gods sake.

There's the legend of a pink panther tank too, from Vietnam, I think if I remember correctly courtesy of an American journalist who swears he saw it abandoned in the Jungle near an old French base. The theory being that the French ended up with German tank stock after the War, and shipped some Panthers out to Vietnam to support their military effort (before they withdrew and America got involved). One got knocked out and abandoned, over time its paint wore away to reveal its pink undercoat. never been located and verified, but chances are it was some post WW2 Frenchie tank hull, apparently they had similar hull angles to Panthers as they started out copying a lot of German learning.

Apart from being quite spectacular, the White Tiger is one of most stupid and harmful war related movies, ever created.

WG did a special for the White Tiger back when it was released, on the RU server only, you had to take on a bot(?) Tiger P with a standard T-34 IIRC.
