The Leopard (T051) and Locust (T055) battle head-to-head. Not something ever seen in the real world, but in R/C Tank Combat lots of strange encounters are normal.

The Leopard (T051) and Hetzer (T027) face off during the battle. Clearly, the Leopard was involved in a lot of conflicts, which is not unexpected given that Neil is one of the U.K. veterans.

Pete "demonstrates" an improper action by an artillery operator so that the new Contest Director can practice interpretting the rules. Interestingly, Pete is in the process of shooting his own teammate according to the following eyewitness account:


As one KOR member confessed to another in the truck on the way home ... placing one's hand in one's own turret and manually pulling the trigger to commit the "friendly fire" offence. That breaks all the rules and morals that I know exist. I'll bet even Tyng wouldn't be that low!

Actually, Tyng would attempt something like that and it is widely believed that Tyng is secretly mentoring Arundel.
