    A coordinated effort you say? Why, what a splendid idea! Of course, it would necessarily entail some difficulties as everyone involved would have to synchronize their aging processes, but let's not be particular about the details shall we?

    Who knows, we might even succeed in stealing a tank, showing the world in general and the Chinese authorities in particular what they could have done to the Tank Man!

    See, that's what I love about this country. We use subtitles instead of dubbing things like the filthy Fritzes!

    This is why I like DarkFool's idea of us doing this as a team. Five people makes a full tank crew, meaning that we can drive, fire and reload simultaneously.

    I hope we grow old fast!

    True.

    I suppose we will have to figure out exactly what setup leads to the most destruction.

    There's a lot of havoc needing to be wraught here.

    I'm just surprised that a drunk ex. military can steal a fucking tank.

    I mean, how does he even get near the tank?

    Go on the streets with a M-16, cause havoc till six stars appear and grab a tank while it's there. What a silly question.

    I think we'd be better off with 2-3 man teams, and multiple tanks. That way we could fire and reload while someone drives. :)

    One thread debating optimal use of tanks:men ratio, and another discussing potential genocide. No wonder I keep coming back. I agree with DF though, in the general concept that there is an optimum means to maximum carnage.

    I maintain that five tanks would be best. Firstly, it saves having to locate and steal ammunition, which is usually in a more secure location. Secondly, five tanks could level a city block in a matter of seconds. Thirdly, with five tanks wreaking havoc in different locations, law enforcement will be spread thin.

    The only way to know for sure is to try it out before the real deal.

    We must locate a country with lax tank-stealing laws, try out one of the different approaches outlined in this thread, go to jail and evaluate, get out and rinse and repeat.

    Hopefully we will have it all figured out before we die.

    Not to mention that when the law enforcers stop one tank, it will mean only a single man down, not two or three at once, so spreading up will make it harder for them. I guess catching three tanks is harder than catching one with a three person crew.
