Re: Pity it wasn't a French tank

Really? Does not sound like scarper to me: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Abbeville

Their performance in the first gulf war does not sound like scarper either. In fact if memory serves me right they were the _ONLY_ ones to engage Iraqi armour directly armour to armour within cannon range and they steamrolled over it by all means. Compared to them yanks just drove down a shooting alley opened for them by A10s without ever firing a shot in anger.
