So, these guys are firing over the tank's back deck...perhaps they're just assuming the "bad guys" have already gotten behind them...

I wonder how much moderation she has to do. The comments under videos featuring WWII German militaria tend to not be as mild as the ones in these two videos.

Let's see, youtube + fascist wannabes? Yeah, there'll be a sh**load of evil she has to nuke on every video.

 

Then you'll get the other wave of sh**birds who want to whine about a woman daring to want to know about tanks. 

 

Dudes, I was on the low end of strength as a tanker. Yet with the appropriate use of a tanker bar, sledge hammer and other such tools, I was able to do anything I had to do on my tank. If she had wanted to, SGM Lewis (my little sister) could probably have kicked my ass and been just as successful a tanker. If we had the T-72/T-80 in service, I have no doubt she would have been better than me if that was what she wanted to be. It would have been a task that I'd have contested so... Take that as you will.

I think one of our brit section relayed, that the tools on the Challenger 2 were developed wiht the input of a woman who was working at the Bovington museum. Which resulted in longer bars for more leverage and less strength needed and such. IIRC of course.

New UK Armed Forces equipment is subject to anthropometric design rules that state it must be operable and maintainable by a defined demographic drawn from a Human Factors Integration technical guide.

Typically the requirement is 5th to 95th percentile service personnel of both genders, target 3rd to 97th.

Obviously 5th percentile female army personnel won't be the same as 5th percentile gen pop females.

Incidentally, there is no complete correlation allowing one to equate, say, a 50th percentile female with a 5th/10th/whatever male, it's more complicated than that.

ok, doesn´t really look assembly line like, the moving method cannot be seen, they seem really close, and there are no stations - visible on our side at least - to assemble anything.

Building in lots doesn´t bother me. Just the hype about assembly lines for tanks in WW2

It doesn't mean that it isn't an assembly line, in fact it probably is.  In this case each team is likely performing a unique task or set of tasks and upon completion of those tasks, either the entire line of vehicles moves, or the several assembly teams move to the next vehicle in line.

For this ex-sailor, what is this vehicle? It looks like a mobile public monument.

According to the Wiki article it was approx. the same height as the Sherman Firefly.
