    British Mark tanks

    Thanks for posting Panzernacker, The Mark series WW1 British tanks are very imposing looking. At least at that time it must have looked like the future had done found the battlefield. I think if I saw one of these monsters coming at me on the battlefield, I think the only option would be to "break and run". Dano
