    Hobo Tanks of the World, Unite!

    Title says it all. Beat-up MBTs from ex-WP preferred, mounted infantry optional. I guess western ones can qualify Smile
    APCs, IFVs or SPHs are also welcome.

    Young Hobos getting at it.





    Also just remember, Hobos tend to be under-rated, downtrodden when not outright brushed aside. But the Hobo has its day, always.

    That's neat, shows the crew or perhaps unit knew their stuff.

    Vijayanta's were actually less feared by Pakistani troopers. Even the Mk-2's were really no match for RLR's. So people with T-55 trying to pass for a Vickers would be ill advised. Nevermind the tank's are difficult to miss (and Pakistan having type-59's and some T-54's by 1970).
