My favorite feature on the tank is the phone :) Posted on May 8, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor My favorite feature on the tank is the phone 🙂
> You want us to just leave all the equipment to the Afghan army?
> and take out the logistics we used to even help run the war?
> 10-4 we’ll leave to let them sort it out
>you want to give the ana loads of equipment to fight??
>you want to leave without giving the ana loads of equipment to fight??
le doublespeak propagandist has arrived
>two question marks
>le x has arrived
go back then have a nice day
But if soldier is phone then who is tank?
tank is tank
the machine spirit
>We've Been Trying To Reach You About Your Car's Extended Warranty
I banged your mom
Interesting tank gear thread?
Pic related, boiling vessel on British tanks, for making tea and other such things.
What is this needlessly over-engineered, un-intuitive piece of shit?
It's for making tea. Since the British love tea.
it's a box for boiling water
literally any retard can use it
It boils water. You can make tea or coffee and also heat rations in it without having to leave the tank/APC. It's a good idea and the US also uses something similar.
So you don't get mowed down in the open by a rogue Tiger tank again
Bongs are physically, emotionally and psychologically dependent on tea.
It’s necessary for the amount of walking you do on a daily basis in London, that and beer to dull the sore feet.
The thing that will provide immense comfort when light discipline is an issue and you can't light a fire to boil food or water
>he doesn't know how to boil water
>le microwaved tea arrives
I hope no one actually does it
Its heating box where you can fry and cook things.
Americans should get one of these in every tank, but make it a deep fryer. You think a burger king truck is good for moral? Try fresh Mcdonalds fries right in your tank
> deep oil frier
The heat from the oil warms the soldier
Just like the boiling vessel, it would have a lid
>STILL IN IRAQ
>WATCHIN MY ASS
>"For the millionth goddamn time, I'm not Domino's. Stop hotboxing the Abrams you fuckers!"
What is the phone used for ? To talk to the guy inside ? The other tanks ? Commandment ? Order pizza ?
>To talk to the guy inside
Believe it or not there is no other way to talk to them in the field.
And all tanks since forever have phones up the butt except it had to wait for IIRC the A1 version for it to re-become a standard on US tonks.
Mine is the "pull here to kill crew" feature.
>Mine is the "pull here to kill crew" feature.
You mean the Halon/gas the crews now/ fuck you and your maintenance readiness FUN Lever.
My fav was the TUSK kit because having poorly fitted MG armor plates that bind on everything and block the hatches, ERA that adds 2 more hours to track PMCS/maintenance from all the trash that falls in the slats and the new electrical and commo upgrades that deadline 70% of vics so some can't even shut off until you pull the fuel line just makes the work day more full.
Tell them to stop. Dont run us over. Tanks have very limited viz when buttoned up.
It's for speaking directly to the crew.
Tank has 2 radios inside that can fit in the mounts, typically one is for their company channel other is for platoon. Working with any other unit means they have to plan ahead and program in their shared channel over company net or program several channels and switch between all of them which would NEVER be done since it's too complicated and you'd likely miss info directly from Co. net( who DO have several radio channels operating with the other units) or the radios likely dump their fill and you lose a channel anyway. They do that, a lot. Mostly, there is no pre-planning and the tank platoon just happened to be in the area and gets told to help. Also, radio chatter from even 2 different units at the same time is worse than xbox live
>t. 2006 ramadi tanker
The loader has the radio on his side of the turret and usually is the newest guy and one of his duties is making sure the radios are set pre-mission, but ON mission he is busy, loading/maintaining main gun/ammo for the coax/, assisting in or outside, grabbing shit from the bustle racks, scanning his sector, manning his MG. The TC COULD keep telling him when to switch channels but that's a waste of HIS time while he's scanning, directing the crew and coordinating movement with his section.
Tanks are big, hard to see out of and can move quick. Humans, cars and building are squishy so you try and keep distance from them and they try and do the same from you.
Instead of guy jumping on tank to talk and getting mulched by the turret, dragged into the sprocket or
M9'ed by angry surprised crew( almost happened by me once), if ground unit needs to coordinate with a tank: Tank Co gets told they need a short halt so ground team can talk to tank, Co tells tank to stop in safe place for units to talk, ground leader uses tank ass-phone, both team up to better do mission and now have new BII tradin buddies back at FOB.
Can anyone pick up the tank phone or is it just NCOs and officers?
Has anyone talked trash randomly to a random tanker over the phone and pretended nothing happened?
That's actually the microwave ration heater
he has up to his head...
anyway my fave is the M1028 Canister Cartridge.
Hopefully we'll get some good drone
footage of it's intended purpose.
Do they even issue those?
Similar to the Sheridan's beehive round. I have a crate from Vietnam that used to contain those.
Ask me how I know this is an old picture.
>Prince Albert in a can?
i wonder how many times "moron gay" was shouted through the phone. lol
I don't think I've ever seen a picture of a marine actually wearing their issued RAT boots before
But is it to talk to the tank or the commanders?
Its connected to the tanks intercom
I always liked that too. Does it ring in the crew compartment like an old time lane line?
I wish. It just cuts into crew vox instead of any other channels.

>11b-kun! Watashi wa kokoro doki doki!
>mom come pick me up, this guy won’t give me a ride
Yeah let me get uhhhhhhhhhhhhh
how else would you order burgers in the heat of battle?
Got games on your tank?
Same. It's funny because phone usage in ordinary life primes us to feel some way or another about phone calls, and putting those feelings into a warzone has a tinge of black comedy to it.
I like to imagine being an infantry wargame boy, talking to a garupan girl through the tank phone during a combined arms tournament. A- and maybe afterward too, because we're both shy. Too bad it's canon that boys in that universe play aerial wargames instead.
They should add this to vidya so I can shit-talk the tank crew after burying mines right behind their tracks.
