Me, Iraqi war tank

I leave this description after two years of posting this Image!

When I tried to shot this photo, I was an absolutely newby in photography, even in PS etc.

Now I can find too many mistakes of this shot by myself, and know that with a bit level and curve adjusting, it should be such a better shot. Even I could remove that annoying boy at the background...

Okay, today I used fd's scoute to find my top most interesting photos, and unbelievably found that the rank of this photo is 1! So posted it to the interestingness group.

 

-Added to the Cream of the Crop pool as most interesting.

    seems a T-55 to me. It is Russian made and the Tank is for sure Iraqi. Iran was using chieftain tanks initialy during the war and when the war went on we also acquired a huge arsenal of ex-iraqi tanks that were captured on the battle field and we were using them against their ex-owners.

    The fact is, when we were using ex-iraqi tanks, they had Iranian flags painted on them and not the Iraqi one! :)))

    The tank is a T-62, built in the USSR, Czechoslovakia, and North Korea, and used by both Iraq and Iran.

    It is not a T-54/55, which has the bore evacuator on the muzzle of the gun, a prominent gap between the first and second road wheels instead of progressively bigger gaps toward the rear, a vertical-slit gunner's sight instead of the circular one, and no transmission bump in the bottom of the rear armour.

    Nice shot. Looks like stripped T-72. I was a shooter in one of those in the army back in 1988.
