Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Two British WWI tanks displayed in Lugansk, Ukraine went through a serious overhaul this year. Now they look smarter than ever in their beautiful green paint.

Of course they were operated not by the Imperial Army, but by the White Army during the Civil War. Six Mark Vs were supplied to the Whites by the British Command in 1919 and captured by the Reds later. This page can provide additional info.

Its good to see that someone is intrested in restoring this machine back to its former glory but to find one in ukraine of all places is a suprise I did not think that these tanks where operated by either the imperial russian forces

Seen it, of course. There is also a great shot of a pilot releasing 'live messenger'

Ever see the pictures of WWI tanks using "wireless communication?"

It's basically a pair of hands coming out of the side port releasing a messenger pigeon. Before radio, these beasts were run at the mercy of the tankers inside.

I love these tanks.

You certainly know a WWI photograph of a tank, made from the trench. Looking at the machine from this point, man feels himself powerless and useless.

Those tanks looks monstrous. These days, you can expect these death dealers on the battlefield.

But could you imagine facing something like this with a rifle, or from horseback?
