LoL! Yes, I wouldn’t want to “bump into” any enemies during a conflict! That seems rather unhealthy.
Our fully loaded M1A1 (HA) tanks weighed around 73 tons as we went into battle. We had 12,000 rounds of 7.62 MG ammo, 1,500 rounds of cal. 50 (both figures were more than the usual ‘combat load’ of 10,000 & 1,000, respectively) plus a 6-man wall tent, 4 cots, 2 complete camo net systems including poles – none of which were used more than once; plus all our personal gear including plenty of “pogey bait” (snacks, popcorn, chips (crisps) and cans of soup/beanie-weenies/canned fruit/ etc.). Add to that extra chemical warfare detection equipment & decontamination supplies, and other things I have forgotten 28 years later! (Below is a bad photo of my panzer while we were still loading junque on board)
Michel, please forgive me: I didn’t intend to hijack your thread!
