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.

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.

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.

Not for tanks. They'll go: "Ach, look! Ein poo! Let's drive over it, Wulfgang!"

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.

I have never heard of something like running over **** for good luck. How do you even see it while in a tank?

If the Germans believed that running over camel poo gave them good luck, then they deserved to die.

So if you drove over a pile of crap later in the war, it'd either be good luck, or really bad luck.

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

And all this time I've been eating carrots in the hopes my eyes will improve...My life is a lie.

Seeing how their tanks were otherwise inferior, they wouldn't have had many other choices.

Not as cheap as a couple of mines and (fake?) **** .
User avatar #17 - lot (05/18/2013) [-]
So then, they just drove over dung with 'tank marks' on them, so the British made mines disguised as flat poo! (No **** Sherlock)
