    Unsure how effective tactically, but inventive to say the least. Beats running upright as a clear target! But that's why I joined the Navy

    One way to catch a short nap could deliver an entire squad right through enemy lines. being towed low to the ground below sight line in high brush or grasses

    Why is the gun pointing directly at the troops?
    .22 I guess because hes blasting through the wall.

    Turret rotated to protect muzzle and recoil gear from the ramparts.

    I bet those sleds got pretty hot from the friction of being dragged along the ground with the weight of the men in them!!

    And just think of what it would be like being dragged behind a tank in 2 feet of snow. But it would still beat having to walk
