Uncomfortable mover of people – Yes.
Tank – No.

It has tracks and allegedly has armor, therefore it is a tank.

"It has tracks and allegedly has armor, therefore it is a tank."
That's what reporters think.

Easy, Lion's just making fun of vague lil' ol' me.

I know it's an APC, using A for Armored rather loosely. Would FV43whatevers even stop 7.62NATO?

But crap, even the company that makes Bradleys calls them "tanks"! (And if you figured out how to stuff a 75mm gun in there, it'd be the equal of a Sherman…)

The website that Tango links to calls it an APC, which it is of course, so where he gets "tank" from goodness knows.

Nicely done though.

In fairness it is still a better "tank" than those Panzer 1 command tanks used in Russia in 41.

And I don't think you need to up arm any modern cannon equipped APCs to beat a Sherman

Glad you like it my friend.

Finally… a tank or not? (smile)

Not a tank now, would have been a good tank in WW1. Only saying because what's a tank is relative to time and expectations.
