Jeez, that is miserable. Of course, the infantry didn't have it so good either.

Learned something new from that video:

‘Chain Mail’ used in WW 1 (for those throat guards).

Inside the German A7V, the only German produced tank to see action in WW1. Appears a bit more spacious inside than the Mark IV, until you realise it had a minimum crew of 18 jammed into it like sardines.

Got some pictures of the inside of a Renault from the Museum of the American GI the other day. Not enough room to turn around or even take a deep breath

Bad enough that Germany cannot seem to keep its Bundeswehr panzers running, they also insist in having their museum panzers to be in non-working condition. ;-)
