Sorry if these are old, but they popped up in my news feed today.

Edit: These pics were not taken by me, and I'm not in the military. I'm just passing them along.

Which M88 is that pictured? I drove the M88A1 when I was in. 

I'm guessing that's the A2 Hercules.

 

I have a lot of pics from the 90's pulling packs with the 88 in the field. Fun times.

 

I was a 63E10-H8

Great pics! I loved it! So, you were a tanker for real. :great:

 

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

3 MoE tanks: T-34, Pz IVH, Tiger I, Pz.Kpfw. T 25, M7, T-50

No!!! haha! These pics came up on my phone's news feed, probably because I search tanks for the game a lot. They aren't MY pics, and I've never been in an actual tank (or in the military). Sorry if that wasn't clear! They were just cool pics so I thought I'd share them.

Don’t have the negatives for those I’m afraid.

I was more the "Drop into darkness" type. But the roar of the friendly beast of peace was always incredible.
