      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

What a bunch of clowns. First, drag the damn thing upside down. Then flip it with considerable effort and more damage. But the part I loved the best is literally tossing the mines on to each other with the whole pile of ammo sitting there. Not exactly what I would call an archeology team...

 

Looks like a WWII T-34.

nor an UDT

 

In DAGO there are areas with & around houses where a rain can uncover un-exploded ordnance (I know what's rain)

 

kids find the stuff and throw it around or bring it home - some BLOW the FUCK-UP

 

Sweeps are done again

 

can't believe the Vid's of treasure hunters in "X" War Zone's digging up metal objects just under the surface :o

 

BUT The Most Stupid thing I ever saw is the tossing atop another of the FACKING Landmines :o

 

Darwin called in sick that day ;)

I think the round items are machine gun magazines but still wouldn't recommend chucking them on a stack.

+1, Mags.

 

But they did show some grenades in sawdust or straw it looked like. Now wouldn't want to poke them too hard.

Sorry, but those are 62 series mines with the arming keys still attached. The igniters are dead for sure after being underwater for 70 years, but the TNT might conceivably still be explosive. However, it's not like they would be any more dangerous to handle than when they were brand new.

Huh?? No mark those are ppsh 43 drums. The cross piece you see in the middle is the wind up key for the spring. Why would a tank be carrying mine? Those drums were for the mounted troops which were part of the assault doctrine.

Why would a tank be carrying mine?

 

Might be because the Soviets in WW2 weren't all that mechanized, they tended to have to walk everywhere, and the supply trucks were few, precious, and kept as far back as practicable. That's not a battle tank, it's a light infantry tank, either they carried them or the foot soldiers have to.

My question is...how the hell do they find these tanks? I mean, who is digging around in the mud on the bottom of these ponds and says "Hey, I just found a tank!"

In between watching TV, eating Cheetos and playing video games?

 

Must be some kids from a different sort of neighborhood.

yea, these kids don't have the money thrown at them that US kids do. They actually have to go outside and interact to play with their friends. Strange huh?

Kinda like when we were growing up. Although all I got from my time mucking around in a pond was leeches. If I had known there were tanks in there, I would have dug around a bit more.

Oh c'mon, you didn't imagine crap like that? We had lakes with Islands and a copper/iron mine on the island. If our parents ever knew what we were really doing they would have never let us out. We used to go out on long hikes to places shut down many, many years ago. Ninham Mountain had abandoned stone houses/huts that we referred to as the ghost towns. Picture a pack of kids roaming the countryside where I grew up with those kinds of places.

Besides, we have not had a major land war since The Revolution so not to many tanks laying around. When you live in a country that has had the shit bombed out of it you are more likely to find this stuff.
