But now I can’t find the video. Gulf Wars is a SCA war that takes place down in Mississippi in the month of March (when it’s considerably warmer than other places in the USA); the tank was a Da Vinci model. They’d never let it on the Pennsic battlefield (August, Pennsylvania), but Gulf Wars is rather more easygoing about neat stuff. It was an amusing image, too: as far as I could tell, they moved the tank by pushing it and the dude ‘driving’ it walked in the middle with his helmet visible so that a pike could maybe get at it. I have no idea how the marshals were ruling attacks by the guy, or even if he was allowed to make attacks on his own. Doesn’t matter though; it’d be enough to be able to say No sh*t, there I was, driving a tank in the field battle.
Anyway, amusing image. Guess you had to have been there. Or seen it yourself.
PS: Hey, Leonardo Da Vinci was Fifteenth Century AD. That makes it period, hey? With room to spare. At least in the Kingdom of Gleann Abhann.
