🇩🇪 The Kugelpanzer (Ball-Tank) 🧵

The Kuglepanzer was a one-man armoured vehicle built by Nazi Germany during World War II (1/5) #svagaiature #WWII #WW2 #Germany #Wundervaffe #History #Tech #Tank #Japan #Russia
The only surviving model was captured by the Red Army in Manchuria in 1945 while in service with the Japan Army. How it arrived there from Germany is still a mystery (2/5)
The "tank" was used as a light reconnaissance vehicle with a one man crew. The armour was incredibly light, only five millimetres thick (3/5)

🇷🇺 The T-62 🧵

The T-62 is a Soviet main battle tank that was first introduced in 1961. As a further development of the T-55 series #svagaiature #Tank #Russia #UkraineRussiaWar #t62 #UkraineUnderAttack #UkraineInvasion #tech #History #Thread #TankMuseum (1/13) Image
By the late 1950s, Soviet commanders realised that the T-55's 100 mm gun was incapable of penetrating the frontal armour of newer Western tanks, such as the Centurion and M48 Patton, with standard armour-piercing shells (2/13) Image
It was decided to up-gun the T-55 with a 115 mm smoothbore cannon, capable of firing APFSDS rounds. Experimental trials showed that the T-55 was inherently unsuited to mount the larger new cannon, and work therefore began on a new tank. (3/13)

No #sane man would live with a #ViolenceProne, #PhysicallyAbusive #woman, with a #Femdom, #Gynarchy based ideology, who's built like a #tank and #ScaresTheShit out of every man she encounters!

So whoever you are & wherever you are, your life must be lonely.

Please come to me!
Because, while no #sane man would want you, this clearly bonkers chap longs for an #assertive, #giantess of a #woman, with #MusclesOfSteel, who can make any fan of #NamioHarukawa's art work so week at the knees, he would virtually pine away with longing for her!
I know that, if I lived in such an #AbusiveRelationship, I'd want to #escape.

However, I don't live in an #abusive #relationship & I have the luxury of longing for a #powerful, #violent, #dominant & #controlling #woman who wants to #TotallyEnslave me, from whom #ThereIsNoEscape!

The black and white one (from @C_VargasHarle / Renault archives) shows the commander’s "basket". The other three are from an American M1917 clone. ImageImageImageImage

🥳To say thank you for my 200 followers I uploaded another #freebie🎁. I also want to thank @Sketchfab for the great support. It's great that artists are supported like this.💙

#3D #3DArt #GameArt #IndeGameDev #Mech #Tank #Cinema4D #Octane #Substance
Here are more renderings, rendered with Octane in Cinema4D, of the mech.
It is rigged, but not the hydraulic stamps. You have to do that manually with constrains in your favorite 3D tool.
#3D #3DArt #GameArt #IndeGameDev #Mech #Tank #Cinema4D #Octane #Substance
I am absolutely no animation artist (As you can see) and animate only very rarely, so have mercy on me.
But I don't want to withhold the rendering from you. If someone can animate the freebie better, I would be happy to get a version of it. #3DArt #GameArt #IndeGameDev #Mech

Adding useful info from #Inscription of #Gupta era (~320-550 CE) in this thread in support of सत्र (#Temple Kitchen, अन्नदान) tradition of Hindus

• Place - गढवा (Pic 1)
• Dist. - प्रयागराज, #UttarPradesh

1/n ImageImage
गढवा is a #Fort near to प्रयागराज. Ancient name of this place was भट्टग्राम.

Some 6-7 Inscriptions are found from here in #Sanskrit language. Most of them are badly damaged and so incomplete but still giving useful information.
2/n Image
This गढवा #Fort houses many beautiful #Temple ruines of #Gupta era.

From this Temples, Inscriptions related to अन्नदान (सत्र) are found. They reveal that wealthy people of पाटलिपुत्र (Capital of Gupta Empire) donated a lot for sustaining this सत्र tradition.

Undertook a rudimentary analysis on the light #tank requirement basis data from the #IndianArmy RFI released in 2009.
Turns out the K21-105 & K21-120 tick more boxes than the Sprut SDM1 .
Moreover the K21 could be built at the @larsentoubro factory at #Hazira #Gujarat .
Did not consider Harimau due to Turkish content .
Similarly did not consider US MPF program vehicles as they're still in development.
Anders & CV90/120 due to 30+T weight restrictions .
That said the US MPF program offers two intriguing light tanks with the @BAESystemsInc M8 BUFORD & @GD_LandSystems Griffin 2.
Adding our numbers to the US requirement a run of 800 vehicles can be achieved reducing cost for both. BufordBufordGriffin 2Griffin 2

Cómo eran los túneles del vietcong en Vietnam?
Una de las "armas secretas" del vietcong,los túneles eran cavarlo con con paletas y otros instrumentos, alcanzando hasta 20 m de profundidad y pudiendo llegar a decenas de kilómetros de extensión, como encontrado por australianos.
Mientras tropas y #helicópteros #estadounidenses ocupaban los cielos y los bosques de #Vietnam, durante la guerra de 1961 a 1975, los vietnamitas del norte y las fuerzas comunistas se valieron de esa estructura primitiva, pero extremadamente eficaz.
#Historia #Guerradevietnam
Cada malla subterránea podía albergar a miles de personas,por períodos que podían durar varios meses. El complejo más famoso se encontraba en el distrito de Culo-Chi, a unos 70kms al SurEste de Saigón,la capital de 🇻🇳 del Sur,y cerca de importantes bases militares estadounidenses

Israel is looking at unmanned armoured vehicles through its Carmel program. Developments are likely to feed into other AFVs already in service and provide a marker for other nations to gauge progress. #armour #tank #AI
The key will be ensuring responsiveness. Russia has reportedly trialled UGVs in urban situations alongside conventional forces. The operators struggled to fully appraise the battlefield and respond to situations in time. Not quite as easy as call of duty it seems
Another consideration will be cyber security - while likely to be controlled via a secure network these vehicles will need main mission computers that could be accessed during routine maintenance or through USB-style attacks. Ie the attack carried out on Iran #cybersecurity
