Surely that should be titled gun fired from drivers view point

Chill George, not having a pop mate, I’m just pointing out the view is from the drivers window


Sorry to disagree with George but you are right, LT – that title is a bit disingenuous. Leads you to think that you are going to see the INSIDE of the tank whilst it is firing.

Really fascinating.
