Breaking through by A3DR Breaking through by A3DR
It took a while to edit but now it's finished. A double shot of the Jagdpanther Tank Destroyer simply plowing through the walls in the shattered French city of Lyon(or tanking it as I would say).

This is actually one of my most favourite tanks from WWII and games alike. After seeing a tiger drive in a take shells like a damage sponge, the guile of the Jagdpanther's angular design is quite amusing to watch as the enemy tries in vain to penetrate it's relative thin(compared to the Tiger) armour while all the rounds just bounce off. Only the heaviest of tanks have the muzzle velocity to do some true damage but the 8.8cm Pak 43 makes short work of many a foe.

Well apart from my rambling, this shot really has to be compared to the original image to fully appreciate the work I've done which can be found @ the following [link].

If you like it. Please leave a comment, favourite or both. :)

Heh heh, I always admired that about tanks. While other vehicles must go 'round, tanks just go right through.

The problem is that not all tanks can go through anything. For instance the Panzer IV medium tank can roll through most things however tank traps and large walls are impassable. On the other hand, a Jagdpanther or something of similar weight and power can roll over just about anything.

As can an M808B "Scorpion". It weighs 66 tons. And like a Marine said once, "Tank beats everything!"

Speaking of heavy vehicles, the Panzerkampf VII (designated Maus) weighed nearly 200 tonnes. That figure is exactly why they designed the tank with a snorkel to traverse rivers since virtually no bridge could effectively support that kind of weight. Only two were ever produced(one of neither of which were fully operational).

I figured as much.
