A fine day, with a stiff breeze, glorious sunshine and a choppy sea in the background, providing a lovely backdrop to this T-55 tank crushing a small car. We were lucky enough to catch this happening at the Muckleburgh Collection, a museum of military vehicles, uniforms and memorabilia on the North Norfolk coast near Sheringham. Check out the website at http://www.muckleburgh.co.uk/ and drive safely;)
Muckleburgh Military Collection Tank Display. 23/06/2012.
This is the Muckleburgh Military Museum http://www.muckleburgh.co.uk/ on
the beautiful North Norfolk coast. Featuring M10 tank destroyer, Soviet
T55 100mm MBT, Swiss Panzer 105mm PZ61, Soviet 85mm T34/85 and 2 British FV
433 Abbot 105mm SPGs. Unfortunately the M10 stopped with a clutch problem,
but was still able to provide some noisy anti tank cover.

DEADLY TANK ukraine unveils new Main Battle Tank TO SCARE PUTIN
A main battle tank (MBT), also known as a battle tank or universal tank, is
a tank that fills the heavy direct fire role of many modern armies. They
were originally conceived to replace the light, medium, heavy and
super-heavy tanks. Development was spurred in the Cold War with the
development of lightweight composite armor. They are still supplemented in
some armies with light tanks.
Today, main battle tanks are considered a key component of modern
armies. Modern MBTs seldom operate alone, as they are organized into
armored units which involve the support of infantry, who may accompany the
MBTs in infantry fighting vehicles. They are also often supported by
surveillance or ground-attack aircraft.
Prior to and during World War II tank design suffered from a number of
limitations due largely to engine power and transmission capability. This
allowed the designer to produce a tank with high maneuverability, armour,
or a large gun, but generally not all three at the same time. Combined with
tank theory which stressed high-speed dashes into the rear of the enemy's
lines, these limitation led naturally to two classes of tanks.
The first, known variously as light tanks, cruiser tanks or even tankettes
for the very smallest versions, were designed for outright speed. The
concept was to exploit holes in the enemy lines and run far into the rear
areas in self-supporting armoured groups. This would disrupt enemy
logistics and command-and-control, as well as delay the movement of
reserves to the front. It was believed operations of this sort would
undermine or completely destroy the ability for the front-line troops to
To create those holes in the line, a second class known as heavy tanks or
infantry tanks, were designed to work in concert with front-line infantry.
As these were expected to move forward at the same speed as the men, higher
speeds were not required and the engine power could instead be used to
carry a much greater load. Infantry tanks featured much larger amounts of
armour, heavier guns, and more track area to allow them to cross a
A final class evolved during the war, the dedicated tank destroyer. These
were generally conversions of existing tank designs, lightened in order to
allow them to carry much larger guns.
Trial by fire
In spite of a great amount of theory and pre-war testing, the plans for
armoured combat quickly proved themselves outdated. The battlefield did not
bog down like it did in World War I and tended to be much more mobile. This
was especially evident in the great sweeping battles in North Africa and
the Soviet Union, where armoured forces executed drives of hundreds of
miles. In these cases the problems with having two designs became
especially evident; the tanks able to go toe-to-toe with the enemy were
generally found miles to the rear, trying to catch up. Those able to
maintain the drive were lightly armoured, and proved easy prey for enemy
anti-tank guns and rifles. Tank destroyers were particularly derided,
invariably finding themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time,
attacked by infantry when on their own and rarely finding their intended
This led to the emergence of designs with slightly greater armour, able to
defeat anti-tank rifles and most smaller guns. As these appeared, the
tank's own weapons had to grow larger in order to deal with enemy tanks
with the same level of armour. This evolution led to the medium tank, which
dominated combat in the second half of the war. Generally these designs
massed about 25-30 tonnes, were armed with cannons around 75 mm, and
powered by engines in the 400 to 500 hp range. Notable examples include the
Soviet T-34, the most-produced tank to that time, the German Panzer IV, and
the US M4 Sherman. The widespread production of these designs led to most
others being pushed out of service or into niche roles.
Emergence of the MBT
Meanwhile the rapid increase in engine power in aviation world had
trickle-down effects in the tank world. An especially notable example was
the deal arranged between Rolls-Royce and Rover, which led to Rolls gaining
access to early jet engines while Rover took over development of the
Rolls-Royce Merlin engine for tank use. The latter, the Rolls-Royce Meteor,
offered such a great improvement in power that the resulting Cromwell and
related designs were considered cruisers (light or medium tanks) while
offering firepower and armour similar to the infantry tanks. Continued
development of the basic Cromwell design led eventually to the Centurion.
This design's armour was able to defeat all small and medium anti-tanks
guns, mounted a gun able to defeat even the largest enemy tanks, and
offered manoeuvrability even better than earlier light tank designs. It was
so flexible that they referred to it as the "universal tank",

Poland Listeni/ˈpoʊlənd/ (Polish: Polska), officially the Republic of
Poland (Polish: Rzeczpospolita Polska; Kashubian: Pòlskô Repùblika), is
a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech
Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine, Belarus to the east; and the
Baltic Sea and Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the
north. The total area of Poland is 312,679 square kilometres (120,726 sq
mi), making it the 69th largest country in the world and the 9th largest
in Europe. With a population of over 38.5 million people, Poland is the
34th most populous country in the world, the sixth most populous member
of the European Union, and its most populous post-communist member. Poland
is a unitary state made up of 16 voivodeships.
A tank is a tracked, armoured fighting vehicle designed for front-line
combat which combines operational mobility and tactical offensive and
defensive capabilities. Firepower is normally provided by a large-calibre
main gun in a rotating turret and secondary machine guns, while heavy
armour and all-terrain mobility provide protection for the tank and its
crew, allowing it to perform all primary tasks of the armoured troops on
The M1 Abrams is an American third-generation main battle tank produced by
the United States. It is named after General Creighton Abrams, former Army
Chief of Staff and Commander of U.S. military forces in the Vietnam War
from 1968 to 1972. Highly mobile, designed for modern armored ground
warfare, the M1 is well armed and heavily armored. Notable features
include the use of a powerful gas turbine engine (multifuel capable,
usually fueled with JP8 jet fuel), the adoption of sophisticated composite
armor, and separate ammunition storage in a blow-out compartment for crew
safety. Weighing nearly 68 short tons (almost 62 metric tons), it is one of
the heaviest main battle tanks in service.
The M1 Abrams entered U.S. service in 1980, replacing the M60 tank. It
served for over a decade alongside the improved M60A3, which had entered
service in 1978. The M1 remains the principal main battle tank of the
United States Army and Marine Corps, and the armies of Egypt, Kuwait, Saudi
Arabia, Australia, and Iraq.
