    I remember in the early 80s a GI took an M60 on a Tour de Force through downtown Mannheim...he was on one of the city's bridges over the Neckar River when he drove over the edge and drowned in his tank...

    the tank is not stuck in a river but in a crater filled with treacle that escaped when the sugar factory was shelled and all the sugar had melted and filled the sounding ground with a foot of treacle. when the tank crossed the crater it went crashing through the layer of hard sugar and got stuck

    Knocking out a battle tank by drowning it in treacle....not generally a tactic found in the combat manuals, I have to admit...
