That's a M109A6 Paladin self propelled Howitzer. It's an artillery piece, not a tank flyboy. =)
Airman - April 28, 2010, 2:03 pm,
well, it's kind of tankish looking
GreyScorpion - April 28, 2010, 2:14 pm,
tanks for the clarification.
R.S.Jake - April 28, 2010, 3:56 pm,
Well crankypants, just because it isn't an Abrams, doesn't mean it's not a tank. If it's not a tank, how come one is on display at the A.A.F. TANK museum in Danville, Virginia?
crankyhead - April 28, 2010, 5:07 pm,
Actually Jake, this is definetly not a tank. Tanks engage in close quarters and fire their rounds in a direct line of fire. Artillery stays far away from combat and fires its rounds in a ballistic trajectory or indirect line of fire like a mortar.
crankyhead - April 28, 2010, 5:13 pm,
also, it's called the Tank & Ordinance war memorial museum. Artillery is classified as "ordinance". I only made the first comment cause the first three words of the poster are "Tanks easily identified" Sorry if the humor got lost on you.
R.S.Jake - April 28, 2010, 5:13 pm,
Well, thank you for correcting the internet Crankyhead, we stand correctd.
crankyhead - April 28, 2010, 5:16 pm,
and just for the record, us army grunts are always taking the piss out of the air force pukes and vice versa. It's a timeless tradition that keeps us both on our toes. Airman knows this, I know this and now Jake, you know it too.
crankyhead - April 28, 2010, 5:17 pm,
Jake, you stand corrected.
R.S.Jake - April 28, 2010, 5:21 pm,
Well, your screen name is apt! Cranky! I was standing up for a regular member...one who has contributed to this site more time that you have been on the internet most likely. So, just chill, and go about your business...thank you, drive through.
crankyhead - April 28, 2010, 5:27 pm,
Jake, no matter how hard you whine about it, it's still not a tank. You don't have to stand up for him because if airman doesn't have an issue with me sayin what I said, neither should you. Seriously Jake, get off his jock already.

R.S.Jake - April 28, 2010, 5:35 pm,
You're silly. You must be up past your bedtime.
R.S.Jake - April 28, 2010, 5:37 pm,
Hey Face, you gotta Wafflehouse near you? If you do, I'm on my way! I'll bring the Beer!
crankyhead - April 28, 2010, 5:41 pm,
Jake... let it go buddy, you're wrong about me and the intention of my comment and about the howitzer being a tank. Just because you're a mod doesn't mean you can't be wrong. Now go eat some bacon and drink some whiskey and drop it.
R.S.Jake - April 28, 2010, 5:44 pm,
Good god! I already admitted you knew more about tanks, congratulations! Here's your freaking prize! I dropped it. You are the one with the inability to let it go my friend. Go bug someone else. You're good at that.
Faceplant31 - April 28, 2010, 5:44 pm,
Whos got the bacon and whiskey? I gots waffles and beer! Lets make it a party, anyways guys i gave this pic to Airman, this is my latest potato gun, duh!
R.S.Jake - April 28, 2010, 5:46 pm,
I'll bring the bacon! Nice Tater Gun Face!
Faceplant31 - April 28, 2010, 5:47 pm,
Where is Mooooooooooooooooo? i know he has some Jamesons!
R.S.Jake - April 28, 2010, 5:49 pm,
I bet Mooooooooooo already drank all the Jamesons.
Fatt Matt - April 28, 2010, 6:06 pm,
HEY! that's a cool Tank!
R.S.Jake - April 28, 2010, 6:11 pm,
Airman - April 28, 2010, 6:26 pm,
Cranky is right guys.. d***it. FYI, an A10 don't care.. just like Bone
crankyhead - April 28, 2010, 6:50 pm,
Cheers Airman, 5 sh**s of Jeremiah Weed for you sir.
almarpa - April 30, 2010, 4:34 pm,
This is not a tank is a self-propelled howitzer... Sorry, you failed!
GreyScorpion - April 30, 2010, 4:37 pm,
tanks for pointing that out, oh somebody already did
Airman - April 30, 2010, 4:43 pm,
thanks GS.. thought we were going to have to cover that all over again. Welcome to Motifact.com
R.S.Jake - April 30, 2010, 4:55 pm,
Kind of makes you want to make some fact-bait posters...
CANADA - April 30, 2010, 6:27 pm,
Hey guys, that's not a tank
Airman - April 30, 2010, 6:28 pm,
pounds head on keyboard
CANADA - April 30, 2010, 6:28 pm,
Smileyzhere - December 30, 2010, 9:59 pm,
Totally not a tank. That is however a m109a6 Palidan. Mechanized Artillery.
AdmiralAckbar - December 30, 2010, 10:42 pm,
It's a lark!
Mooooooooooooooooooo - December 31, 2010, 9:21 am,
LOL @Ackbar......And it's clearly a Daisy air rifle mounted on a dogsled.
GreyScorpion - December 31, 2010, 9:26 am,
what a way to end the year..., it's a potato gun on a snowmobile
crankyhead - December 31, 2010, 11:22 am,
