How do you pilot your tank?
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

If you ever wanted to be a jet pilot, you could try to take off with your vehicle..

The tank upside down in the river ( I can't tell what it is, Leo2, Abrams?) is a scary thing indeed. Can anyone tell me do modern tanks still have escape hatches for crew in those situations?

It looks like a Leo 2. Not an Abrams.

Escape hatches are a thing of the past. If located in the underside of the hull they are more of a weak point for blast penetration from a mine.

This is at Hohenfels in 1999. I have seen a similiar photo of a tank running off the bunkers at Hohenfels back in 1989, in the exact same place.

BTW: This is located in an off-limits area of the manuever area.

Swedish Leopard 2.

The Leopard 2 has a escape hatch just behind de driver. In the past in was trained to get out with the crew. First at the barracks and after that in the field.

If it is done during training the last couple of years I don't know.

Regards,
Lesley
