  • Hello my friends

  • Hey it's me Destin, i'm at the ordnance museum, let's go learn something.

  • I'm just Kidding

  • This is a Russian tank, a T-34

  • Hey this is the first tank, or actually the first vehicle to be called tank.

  • This is the um, the mark-4. The British made this in 1917, this is the female version.

  • It just had machine guns on the side. The male version had cannons at the side.

  • Anyway, the reason it was first called a tank is because the British tried to hide the fact from the Germans that they had an armored vehicle.

  • To go against the trench warfare that was going on world war I

  • Anyway, they called it a tank to make the Germans think that it was a mobile water tank they were using to supply the troups out front

  • That why we call armored vehicles tanks today

  • Or at least some of them

  • There, now you know.

  • Guten Tag.

  • So back before armoured glass existed they did something pretty interesting

  • To protect against bullets in armoured vehicles

  • Here you can see on an Italian tank they had a slit

  • And that's what the driver would look through

  • Also

  • On the sides there's little holes for guys to stick their weapon out of

  • This is a really, really tiny armoured vehicle

  • I'll go show you that slit on another vehicle over here

  • Okay this is a german vehicle and you can see it had the same- (slit)

  • This is early turn of the century stuff

  • You can see that's where these guys could see, this armoured block was moved

  • This was 1937, I was wrong not the turn of the century

  • Pretty awesome

  • Captured in Korea. My granddaddy helped do this

  • Yea

  • God bless America
