3 Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the girls my treads to keep
Guide me through the battle's night
And wake me with the victory's light.

Panzer Vor!

4 I am curious. What is that thing? (Obviously either a tank destroyer, of course.)

5 No, no... seriously.  Dudes.  I pole vaulted on the track team back in tank school.  Watch this...

7 Steven, it's the Stridsvagn 103, more commonly known as the S-Tank.  It's actually classified as a main battle tank, as opposed to a tank destroyer. 

It was basically a clever idea to reduce the overall height of a tank by removing the turret

8 Ah, the wikipedia article explains it.  It didn't look like that gun could be moved at all, the way it attaches through the armor... I figured it was just a trick of the jpg... but the whole chassis tilts to change elevation.  Neat.

9 What tanks do at Patton's tomb.

10 Mikeski, most modern tanks have that ability in their suspension.

11 The Scandinavian version of a "low rider" is both cool and frightening at the same time...
