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.

false the Germans never had flame throwers but instead were ordered to shoot any dog in combat areas

Didn't that fail because the Russians trained the dogs on Russian tanks, and they only ran under Russian tanks?

that is actually wrong as the russian dogs went under their own tanks as they were only familiar with the structure

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...

For some reason, my brain wouldn't register the word "dung" was right after camels, so I thought tanks ran over ******* camels. MFW

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.
