GERMAN TANKS - Technology, Development & History | Full Documentary

Wetenschap en technologie

The modern tank was born at the time of the First World War. The British used the rolling steel combat vehicles for the first time against German troops. Then the Germans develop the “A7V” - and in the Second World War “Panther” and “Tiger”. Ferdinand Porsche was also involved with the “Maus” in the construction of tanks during National Socialism. The documentation gives a chronological insight into the production and technology of German tanks, up to the latest models of the Bundeswehr.

    You know why I have no kids? Because in addition to the universe trying and ultimately succeeding to kill us, we're super good at it ourselves too. Eternal sleep, it's quite underappreciated.

    These armies are doing nothing. They are simply professional killers, professional criminals, trained criminals. We are giving them training in how to kill. And we talk about humanity, we talk about civilization, and still seventy percent of our income goes into killing. One world government means a tremendous change, a revolution. The whole earth will be benefited by it. --OSHO BUDDHA-

    "the modern tank was born over 100 years ago" what i bizarre thing to say and no i dont mean that he said "born" although that is weird. I mean he said the "modern tank" surely he should have said the "first tanks". Calling something modern when it's the very first creation is just weird.

What did NATO do in Libya (under the false pretext that Gaddafi has chemical weapons that were never found!) Again robbery of gold from the Libyan Bank ... What did they do in Serbia (under the pretext of protecting the rights of Albanians) total looting of mines and resources of Serbian property ... That is NATO ...! A lie in the interest of Rothschild Bank to deceive public opinion ... Essentially: CRIME ... It's the same now in Ukraine ... The same model ... LIE ... LIE ... LIE ...

    One thing I'm confused about if someone can help me out, why do western tanks besides the Leclerc, not use autoloaders? surely it makes sense to minimise fatigue of crew in an intense battle and minimise crew numbers by having it? Given, does add some more things to go wrong.

    ​@Strato Cumulus There are tests running, but on the side of Rheinmetall, but not KMW/Nexter - after this fusion, the situation is a bit odd and the decision will depend on the next larger order - if placed.

    But for caliber sizes 130 mm and more autoloader is necessary because of the weight of the rounds. For this calibers autoloader is faster.

    Because humans are still faster with the loading and can solve problems if one occurs - autoloader can jam, esp. on rough terrain. The amo must also be stored to feed a autoloader and this is difficult, a loader can quickly grab the ammo from different storage points in the tank.
