    Photo featuring a vintage 'Pink Panther' Land Rover of the type operated by SAS Mobility Troop. In use with the Regiment between the late 60s up until the mid-80s, these were based on the Series IIA 90 Land Rover. The pink paint scheme was said to be highly effective in the desert. They were eventually replaced by the Land Rover 110 series and its more subdued beige camouflage scheme.

    I don't have a problem with them displaying a pink tank but the purple war helmets are a bit much.

    Reporter thought he'd do a breast cancer month story with the pink tanks, turns out there's another reason for the color, but he still had to turn something in. There you go.

    Instead of figuring out what causes cancer lets paint things pink and give more money to big pharma.

    But when the Army recently sent out pictures of a pink tank at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, saving woman from the disease was not the goal.

    So the army has to paint stuff pink because there are so many people out there that don't know cancer exists? Who are these people?

    1. They didnt paint it for breast cancer awareness.
    2. Donations generally go to research organizations, not to pharmaceutical companies.

    Methinks dummy did not read the article.

    And, dude, I liked the show too. But having a Buffy avatar is really pathetic. At least Puppet Angel was somewhat quirky.

    That would make night firing a bitch.

    I liked this story better when the grunts at Ft. Benning painted a tank infantry blue to fuck with the armor guys that are there now.

    That'll learn 'em to change "the home of the infantry" to "the maneuver center of excellence."

    What's with this "we" crap? No one's making you wear pink, or stopping you from figuring out what causes cancer.
