Early tanks had their drawback though, for one, it was cramped quarters, the engine noise was unbearable, it was stifling hot, and plus the armor wasn't that great. Artillery rounds and armor piercing rounds could still get through.

Still. I'm jealous. The closest I ever got to a tank was an APC some guys from the National Guard brought to the Christmas Festival one time.
