Like how German tanks use their ammo as spaced armour?

Ammo rack is in the back of the turret as well as under the front hull so any shell entering through the turret roof is going to have a good chance of getting the ammo rack.

I genuinely believe that due to financial constraints the Chinese constructed the body of the WZ111 1-4 from discarded ammo racks. Granted, they may have melted them down first; I'm not sure. But meh. 

 

Incidentally, I've been trying to work out; you know that when Mr H Dumpty fell from the Great Wall and sadly passed on, why did all the King's horses try to put him back together again? They don't have opposable thumbs. That's just crazy, right?

It were all the King's horses AND all the King's men. The men have the thumbs, the horses were turned into glue. :great:

I remember a time when I was shot in the tracks, got tracked, and my gun was also damaged. :harp:

Sometimes I can only wonder at how module damage actually works. :(

Wait till you get 113. It uses ammo racks as armor.

Chinese are a copy/paste of Russian tanks.

 

I got one shot ammo racked in the IS-7 by a Ferdi who shot through my LFP.

 

But you keep up those tin foil purchases, it's good for the economy.

Granted, I understood that the King's men tried to resuscitate Mr Dumpty, but the horses? Besides, they weren't turned into glue; they ended up at Tescos in someone's 'beef' burger.

Would that be anything to do with the offer at the petrol station?

 

Only Fuels and Horses?

Chinese tanks store ammo everywhere, but don't worry, the entire tank is also a wet ammorack. :great:

 

It's unfortunate that this wetness is created by apparently filling the entire thing with fuel.

It's a little known secret that Chinese tanks are OP when ramming precisely because of this. :justwait:

 

Oh how I wish...

Besides, I can't believe we tell this story to our infants and small children. Way to promote suicide in the younger generation. I say we ban Humpty Dumpty from ever abseiling his stone fortifications again. Imagine the sheer number of eggs we'll save! Sod it, I'm starting a new campaign; Save Humpty!

Noone ever said he was a pre-pubecent avian. nor that he survived his ordeal. Were you assuming his identity, sir?

Well, granted, I may have assumed his identity a little,...  But come on,... They couldn't put Humpty together again! That sounds pretty damned terminal to me.

Stop the damn presses. Did you just assume Humpty Dumpty's gender? In 2019? Outrageous.

Then how does one know what he was, if all we have to show is some ungodly mess left after impact, let alone his species? Or, for that matter, his gender!
