sorry for crappy pics, it comes by way of the Russian version of popular mechanics, high speed, combat capable (read as: shoot on the move!) tank landing craft from FSU.

    Ah…they’ve FINALLY recognized the virtues of the shovel-jawed spider-eyed hydrofoil catamaran design.

    When the craft beaches, how does the tank get off?

    It appears the front part of the foil moves upward, bringing the rest of the craft down, allowing the tank to drive off.

    Oh yeah, it does in the second image. I couldn’t work it out at first.

    Flying tanks, swimming tanks…now all we need is a digging tank.

    We call those bulldozers. Only the Israeli army uses them frequently.

    I think he meant more like a tank that tunnels or burrows. Like the Devil’s Tongue tank or the Tick Tank from Command and Conquer 2.
