GERMAN TANKS - Technology, Development & History | Full Documentary

The modern tank was born at the time of the First World War. The British used the rolling steel combat vehicles for the first time against German troops. Then the Germans develop the “A7V” - and in the Second World War “Panther” and “Tiger”. Ferdinand Porsche was also involved with the “Maus” in the construction of tanks during National Socialism. The documentation gives a chronological insight into the production and technology of German tanks, up to the latest models of the Bundeswehr.

    Great video. The truth is that if Russia wouldn't have had several other countries helping them Russia would have lost to Germany. If the US would have been thinking ahead it would have let Russia and Germany slug it out and then mopped up what was left after both sides were weakened. Now we have to worry about what Russia is up to. Both Russia and Germany were up to no good at the time, both were slaughtering lots of innocent people.

    These armies are doing nothing. They are simply professional killers, professional criminals, trained criminals. We are giving them training in how to kill. And we talk about humanity, we talk about civilization, and still seventy percent of our income goes into killing. One world government means a tremendous change, a revolution. The whole earth will be benefited by it. --OSHO BUDDHA-

    @ॐ मणि पद्मे हूँ 🐲 OM Personally i think the Leo2A7/Strv122 as it is known in my country is a great tank. I have pesonally experiense with is as i served in one during my military service. As said it has the eight combination of speed firepower and armor (which is great). I dont get the point that youre making?

    @TheYesFurret Leopard 2 doesn't have insulated warehouse for amunition like Abrams M1A. It have engine in the back, weight is to much and through this modernization of armor is very dificult, special armor is lower quality Abrams, Chalanger and Merkava are better in this regard. On the left site on the tower each Leoaprd 2 has dative, this dative was weak spot in armor and army has moved this equipment on the top, and gap was welding, hower it's still less endure than right site of tower beacuse have patchy structure and some welds AND when some country bay this tank can't modify and upgrading contstruction without agreement producer's.

What did NATO do in Libya (under the false pretext that Gaddafi has chemical weapons that were never found!) Again robbery of gold from the Libyan Bank ... What did they do in Serbia (under the pretext of protecting the rights of Albanians) total looting of mines and resources of Serbian property ... That is NATO ...!

    One thing I'm confused about if someone can help me out, why do western tanks besides the Leclerc, not use autoloaders? surely it makes sense to minimise fatigue of crew in an intense battle and minimise crew numbers by having it? Given, does add some more things to go wrong.

    But for caliber sizes 130 mm and more autoloader is necessary because of the weight of the rounds. For this calibers autoloader is faster.

    Because humans are still faster with the loading and can solve problems if one occurs - autoloader can jam, esp. on rough terrain. The amo must also be stored to feed a autoloader and this is difficult, a loader can quickly grab the ammo from different storage points in the tank.
