Sherman Tank Stuck or Flipped Over? Thrown Track? Do This.


Sherman Tank Stuck or Flipped Over? Thrown Track? Do This.

I hope you enjoy this old “field expedients” video as much as I did. It’s all about what to do when your WWII-era tank gets stuck or flipped over, or throws a track, or needs to cross a wimpy bridge.

Who knew that chicken wire would get a tracked vehicle through deep soft sand?

Bridge out and need to make a creek bank less steep? Shoot it with your 75 (cannon).

Dead engine on your tank? No worries, if you have a dual-engine tank — or especially if you have a Chrysler M4A4 tank, which has five engines!

Cranking a cold tank engine? Make sure you don’t pump the gas pedal unless you want a fire inside your air horn.

There’s a lot more good stuff here. Enjoy.
