Crews in tanks with rivets had to have screens or pads to keep their own tank from killing them when hit.

When I look at these old tanks, I just have to wonder how bad it was to be a tanker back then.

Then again, they didn't have to worry ubout getting hulled by depleted uranium rounds.

Ok, my guesses at the last 3 pics posted are:

1. PzSfl Ic/5cm Pak38 auf Pzkpfw II (VK901)
2. T-24
3. "Coalition" experimental Russian SP artillery piece

Yes the double barreled monster is called Coalition SV (Koalitsiya SV in english transliteration). Obviously it's not WW2 but I just could not resist to post it for the coolness factor. It has been presented last autumn for the first time. 2 x 152mm howitzer.

Russian weapon designs rock. I have no idea what advantage is in this double barreled design though.

Looks like an armored train from the Beor war years.

Ok here's some hints. It's a 75mm gun in the picture, it is on rails, and it is WW2 vintage.

I guess this one's a little obscure
