Yes, I was referring to a dog. I just wish you posted the picture, that is one of my favorite pictures from WWII... I mean, how often do you see a dog trotting towards a tank?

No Zoo, the Mighty Mo wasn't launched untill '44. (Yeah, first thing I thought of too.) Can anyone tell me why the dog bombs failed?

Yeah, they make a really cool green flame.

The dog-bombs failed because after the first few times when the Germans saw a dog strapped with explosives, they got wise. Also, the dogs were a bitch to train(no pun intended), and they tried to go under the Russian tanks too often for Unca Red's liking.

The dogs couldn't just differentiate between Panzers and T-tanks... just like some stupid FH players. But, well, that's not the case

They trained the dogs by making them hungry enough to get them in distress of finding foods. The trainers put the food under the T-tanks of course. The dog rushed in below the tank's hull trying to acquire the foods, and eventually will detonate the bomb.

In real theatre, they got easily scared away by the explosion of gunpowders. Some of them even managed to differentiate tanks very well, even better than some of my friends. Instead of storming under the hull of Panzer tanks, they turned back and saw that "hey this is the kind of tank that they would hide my foods in!!! Ya'll cannot trick me idiots!!" So they rushed to Russian's side and make them catch a boomerang!
