I’ve been doing this for a long time now and I’ve learned how to draw trucks that fit your head, body shape, but I’ve never yet attempted to draw an armored truck. Well I’ve always tried but the first time I started drawing armored trucks for my model kits I had absolutely no clue what I was doing. I was trying to do more than just draw the body and figure out what it would be like to stand next to a tank and drive through an obstacle field. That was when I realized that I had made a grave mistake.”
In reality and in his experience, the armor of a tank actually protects against the wind just like the wind. According to the German website: Tanker.de, “The best way to do damage to armor is by passing through an obstacle field, or by having large numbers of infantry cross a road or path.”
That is, if the truck is in a closed position.
A soldier sitting up against an enemy tank’s turret and the wind blowing through the open windshield would not pose any physical problem.
But if he was standing up against the truck, it was definitely not a good idea for his head to enter the air.
If your head doesn’t stay up the front armor of an armored truck, or any vehicle, will be blown away into the air by its recoil when you shoot. Luckily, the wind can blow the tank’s wind screen forward if necessary.
To make up for all this, the soldier must also prepare to get killed by an attack and for his body to be knocked off the truck to survive.
Fortunately, this is unlikely.
“Even if I didn’t have a hatchet, a shotgun and a machete I would still die for my country. We have to think about the danger that we’re taking a risk. That’s why I’m not one of those guys who would blow himself up. If I had that kind of motivation, I’d probably try to make my own death look more realistic.”
The best military training I’ve ever had was the ones I got in the army, where all the time-wasted training sessions were given over to real combat scenarios. I’ve killed a lot of soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. And all I can think of is their faces when they saw what I had done. Their faces when they saw me in a movie and they were like, “How are you doing that? That’s not what you looked like.” I’ve done things
