it shoots lasers that are powered by the things mentioned above ;)

C'mon man it's common knowledge that the ammo is held in the Mary Poppins luggage bag right next to the coat rack.

I have no doubt that they would fit in real life, its just that it seems like it would be hard to draw a cartoon that way, unless you have quote bubbles aimed at the odd foot sticking out from behind the other guy jammed in next to the other guy. Might be like a cramped grey where's waldo?

It does look like a clown car with the proportions of the tank combined with their heads all sticking out like that.

[COLOR=Silver]Leather tanker helmets would once again be awesome.

I like how the clown car posted above has "KIA" written on the side of it.

As a fan of Metal Slug/Advance Wars, I have to say I approve of the look of that thing. :)

Just adding a story I stumbled upon recently. It happened during the fights around Bastogne in 1944.

It had been hard fighting inside Noville on the 20th of December. Armor piercing ammunition was running low and the Germans just kept coming.

Just before the fog had cleared a Tiger tank had charged right into the heart of Noville. Visibility among the buildings was just about zero. The tank stopped in front of the command post of Company B, 20th Armored Infantry Battalion. The tanker swung his gun uncertainly toward the door. Capt. Omar Billett said a quick prayer..A joker beside him remarked, "Don't look now, but there is an 88 pointing at you."

Sergeant Lesniak's tank was within twenty yards but the German had failed to see him in the fog; by rotating his damaged turret just a short space to the right Lesniak had his gun dead on the Tiger. At twenty yards he fired three rounds of 75mm. at the German tank without doing any apparent damage. The German quickly put his tank into reverse. But the left track ran up and over a jeep. The jeep was completely crushed but at the same time it fouled the track and beached the tank. The German kept on pushing back the jeep under him.

He next collided with a halftrack and the tank tipped dangerously over on its right side. That was enough for the German crew. They jumped from the tank and ran out of the town, going through the American lines without getting a shot fired at them, such was the thickness of the fog.

The radio inside the Tiger was on a busy channel, and talk flowed on inside the dead tank. It looked like a wide-open opportunity, but before the command post could round up anyone who could understand German, the channel went out.

The tankers destroyed this Tiger with thermite and later on they caught hell from Colonel Roberts for not bringing the tank back to Bastogne. But they had a good excuse. The losses among the tank drivers were already such that they did not have enough men to maneuver their own armor.
