I believe the fastest tank created Was the BT 7 (72 kmh on road), even though it was a light soviet fast tank, It still is a tank.

I believe in fairies at the bottom of the garden. Doesn't mean they actually exist though, does it?

Also, I think you have been playing World of Tanks too often

Sorry if I am sounding a little dismayed.... but did you not read my previous post?

Quote:
The official international speed record for the World's Fastest Tank has recently been set by a CVR(T) Scorpion Tank upgraded to the latest S 2000 Peacekeeper standard by Repaircraft. Timed by the British police and MMST and witnessed by the Guiness Book of Records, a standard production S 2000 raced its way into the record books at an average speed of 82.23 kph. (51 mph) held since 2002.
At what point did 72kph become faster than 82.23kph?

And the fact that I actually (personally) drove an FV101 at over 80 mph in the early 80's (and not witnessed by Guiness or thankfully the Police) counts for nothing then?

Oh well, as long as you believe.... that's OK

Only a idiot would use a game as unrealistic and far from reality as world of tanks... For information, and to think someone would base a statement on information from a game as arcade as that is to call them stupid.

So basically with your second post your already calling someone stupid...

Interestingly that may be the official record but there may be a faster tank, the M1936 which was clocked at 104mph:

Although the veracity of the source might be questioned - further down a Tarantula is described as an insect

The thing is, there are actually many people out there who believe that they are!

I'm not one, by the way, but if you pull off two legs does that count?

When I commented on it to my ex-wife, my 6 year old daughter overheard and said, "That's really silly, a Tarantula is an Arachnid".

That's my girl
