Small number of them are said to be operated mostly to show them off to visitors.
Did the rubber band break on that one?
Looks like something you would find at the bottom of a cracker jack box.
It looks like Mr. Haney has become an arms dealer.
“Hi, aunt Millie! Thanks for visiting, do you want to see Ol’ Bessie, the warhead?”
That last tractor looks like they took the cab from a 1929 REO model C and slapped it on an old Massey Harris.
Better than the ol’ Hoyt-Clagwell they had been using...
“Grorious corrective falm equipment shows the might of our Dear Reader!”
Doesn’t matter what they are pulled by. Just matters if they can be fired.
They're using carts to move their wounded and the supplies.
The carts came to me in my dream. I couldn't figure it out.
Then I remembered. . . that nightmare in the snow. The agonizing retreat from Moscow.
How cold it was.
They threw the wounded and what was left of the supplies in the carts.
Napoleon was finished."
In other words they dont have fuel to run them on a daily bases.
IIRC, the Germans were pulling their new jet aircraft out to the runways with mules due to lack of fuel.
They were still a threat though.
The the Norks haven't flown in combat in how many years? Experience counts for a lot. And this time, the ROK Army is a force to be reckoned with.
And I would not be surprised if South Korea had an atomic weapon, or three. Just because they are smart enough not to put an ad in the International Herald Tribune doesn't mean they can't. They've got FOUR reactors, and a high tech industrial base.
The South Koreans are certainly capable of making an atomic bomb, but I doubt very much they have done this. They would have to put together an enrichment facility to process their used fuel from their commercial reactors, and thats no small thing. And if they were to try this, everybody and his brother would know about it, because to say that the South Korean government leaks like a sieve is a huge understatement.
Funny-lookin’ tractor ping.
In Japan, water buffalo were used to move Zero fighters out of the Mitsubishi plant.
The John Deere Brigade
They were taken by Chinese tourists.
Given the warped priorities of the Communist Regime there, I would not be suprised if tractors were frequently diverted from farm work in order to tow weapons back and forth from the DMZ.
