This is a short bit of film on the T-28/95 motor gun carriage, though there are many stills of the one remaining vehicle, this is the first MoPic footage I have seen.

Interesting, but the actual vehicles weren't actually must faster than the static display. :)

The term "Tank" is a generic catch all used by most folks in describing a tracked, armored, large gun toting vehicle.much as "car" is used for any type of automobile whether a convertible, (59' Caddy Eldorado) or a coupe, sedan, or Saloon.

More info on the T-28 here (http://ww2incolor.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4730). Scroll to the bottom of a VERY long post (#1 - George Eller's)...

The barrel trepidation is noticeable, and IS NOT firing, the vehicle must be nose heavy as hell. Kind of atractive monster.

Its going over the "washboard" a purposely bumpy stretch of road, probably to see how the power train, and suspension manages the vehicle's weight,( and maybe the crew's ability to keep from spilling the whisky ration :) )

I will say this, if you have total air control and excellent artillery support, then such a tank, even going slow, would roll over whatever was in the way no matter how dug in.

Looks like he's taking the dog for a walk. :) (Actually, the T-28 is drafting the Stuart, that way he can make a cool 14mph downhill.)
