Germany Builds Peace Auto Tank (Dec, 1931)

Germany Builds Peace Auto Tank
LIMITED by the Versailles treaty to war machines of an inoffensive and somewhat ineffective type, Germany is making the best of the situation by constructing weapons which, while not so formidable, at least inspire terror and provide good training. A special armoured auto has been devised to do duty as a tank, which is prohibited. Shown in the photo above, this automobile has a special heavy-duty chassis, and is surmounted by a turret, swinging a small bore gun.

    And some people say that diplomatic deals and treaties don’t work.

    As Tom Lehrer said in his song,
    “We taught them a lesson in 1918,
    And they’ve hardly bothered us since then…”
