    Sadly, that's not a original WW1 tank, remaining examples are too fragile to move these days.
    It's a replica made for the movie "War Horse".

    Actually from what I've heard the Tank Museums originals still run and work quite well. I suspect it is a lot more to do with risk management and crew safety. Using the replica (which is actually excellent as replicas go) is a safer option rather than risking something very rare and impossible to replace.

    Can't imagine why not. I mean, how much damage can he do at 5 mph without a working gun? What could possibly go wrong? :naughty:

    On a completely different topic, though one actually more related to the article, I wish Wargaming would buy Gaijin. I love War Thunder but hate the company that makes it.

    You and me both! I stopped playing War Thunder a while back after some very very questionable decisions and lack of action on some very important aspects of the game. Still I'm playing World of Warships at the moment and enjoying it loads so not too broken up about it. lol

    Guys, that Mark I was perfectly capable of racing through London. It's just that Trafalgar Square was the cap zone. Everyone admired it and took pictures but noone thought of throwing a pebble at it once in a while to reset the cap counter, so when it reached 100% they packed up and left. Game over.

    @chicken - Oh, you.
    He was base camping, obviously. If they had parked Wotan there instead, you would have heard the sirens.

    Oh yes, they seem to be a rather nasty company don't they? Also, I play on Realistic settings with a joystick in Realistic Battles; we get thrown in with mouse aimers who don't have to fly. It's like bringing a knife to a gunfight. What other game does that to you?
