Tanks vs Helicopters


Leave it to me to post a topic such as this. Who will win? The tread-busters of Earthen demolition, or the aerial acrobats of thrust-powered fire support?


Format: If you're a bigger fan of tanks, post one number up. If you're a bigger fan of helis, post one number down. The number starts at 50. When someone fairly post "100", tanks win. When someone fairly posts "0", helicopters win.


Rules: Only one number up or down per post. No changing sides once you've taken a side. No joining a side just to be with friends. If you post at the same time someone else post, the last person(s) to post should edit their posts appropriately.


Remember, have fun! With your number, try seeing if you can post a picture, friendly joke to glorify your chosen vehicle, any comment of analysis, or anything that keeps the thread more entertaining than constant numbers.



I begin: 50!

Bah! All war is a pointless waste of time, life and energy (except number wars) so this choice is a little hard for me to make... I suppose tanks were designed for warfare, and helicopters can be very useful to everyday life: traffic reports, air ambulances, police helicopters and fancy entrances for rich people, so I guess I'll go for helicopters.

Maybe on a planet with no atmosphere for the heli to fly! There's no way a tank would track the helicopter fast enough - plus if the helicopter was loosig it could get away!

Yeh, but the helicopter has so many scanning devices and tracking systems it could just use those to navigate - away from the tank that's about to explode by the sound of that video!

It's not exploding it's smoking itself out:grr:
Than it uses it's heat vision or infrared or whatever it uses to find it's way.

Well then the whole smokey thing would be a waste of time; seeing as both the helicopter and the tank can see well enough anyway...

How is it a waste of time is provides cover from the air for the tank as the aerial vehicles can't pin-point where it is exactly.....although the tank is pretty big so they could just fire randomly and hope to get lucky :p
