And now for something completely different. Over the past day(Feb. 23,2011), I have fixed plastic target bags to some small Lego tanks and have dropped them from a ledge. At first, the tests were unsuccessful. But test 3 was (almost) successful, and I have high hopes for tests 4 and 5. The tank I am using is a Renault FT 17, the first tank ever built with a revolving turret( actually, the first tank to be used in action with a revolving turret, as the No. 1 Lincoln had a dummy turret fitted, but as the first tank ever built it never went into action). all modern tanks stem from this French design and from the T-34.
