During WW2, Birtish tank crew's complained that they didn't have any sufficient facilities for making cups of tea and so since then, it is mandatory for every British tank to be equipped with a tea making set.

I really want a picture of a Challenger tank driving through the desert with a union jack flying on the back and someone standing out of the entry port with a cup of tea. I can dream can't I?

Russians trained dogs to search for food under tanks, then they starved them, wrap them with explosives and set them loose when they saw an enemy tank.

The dogs were too small and fast for machine gunners to kill them, and after 300 lost tanks, the Germans fitted flamethrowers on tanks to counter the threat.

Fun fact. This is false. They gave up the idea for the dog bombers after the dogs always attacked Russian tanks because of the training, and they weren't as effective as they should have been.

Actually that isn't true, the dogs that were trained kept going under russian tanks as a result of them not knowing to train under german tanks, it's either that or an urban myth.

HA! No. What actually happened is they trained them to run under tanks. (none of the food stuff) but they foolishly used their own tanks to train them which used gasoline. The German tanks used diesel. So when they released them the dogs ran under their own tanks. The project was quickly scratched.

There was a problem
for the first few tests they trained them with Russian tanks.
in a real battle the dogs ran under the Russian tanks
later they captured German tanks and used those.

they trained dogs to carry explosives to attack tanks and blow themselves up.
the problem was they trained on russian tanks. once in combat, the dogs would blow up russian tanks.

Early records showed that Russian dogs could tell the difference between German and Russian tanks so after being trained with Russian tanks they would not run at the Germans but rather... well, you get the picture...

It wasn't because it was lucky. It was because they thought that if a camel passed through that area then there weren't any land mines. Clearly this backfired.

The tanks drove over camel dung, not for luck, but because they thought if a Camel went in that direction, it should be safe.

And for who it may concern, they then started driving over dung that had already been driven over. So Allies started making bombs that look like run over dung.

Another trick the British pulled was when they developed the Airborne Interception Radar, it allowed them to detect Germen bombers that would try to arrive under the cover of night.

The Germens became suspicious, and the British didn't want them to know that they had this technology, lest they utilize it themselves or find ways around it.

So through the media British intelligence spread the rumor that carrots improve eyesight, and that they had an amazing Flight Lieutenant manning the defenses dubbed 'Cat Eyes' and that he ate so many carrots that he gained night vision. And that all their defense and pilots ate these carrots. The news got back to the Germens, and so everyone thought the British's secret was carrots, and they never considered the Radar

cool story brah...

I got one for you too:
They conducted chemical experiments with me and when you swallow my semen you dick grows to be 8 or more inches long!
If women swallow my semen their boobs grow to be C's and bigger!
they also become way more attractive and their hair, eyes and skin become more radiantly beautiful!
Its a win win situation!

Carrots do actually improve eyesight, but not to the point of fully-fleged night vision, they contain beta-carotene, a precursor to vitamin A; an extreme lack of vitamin A leads to blindness, thus eating carrots does improve your vision a bit, only if you haven't had mountains of vitamin A recently.
