Mobile garage for tanks and combat vehicles

Mobile garage for tanks  and combat vehicles

Besides aviation, tanks are the most important weapons for conquering terrain, but also for defending terrain.

At rest, most of the time they stand in garages or outdoors.

During the war, most of the time they hide in groves, under various canopies or under bridges and overpasses. They only go out into the open space when they go on a combat mission. Then they are exposed to the enemy action of anti-tank artillery, manual anti-tank systems, aviation, and in recent years their most dangerous opponent is drones. Therefore, much more needs to be done to protect them.

Protection can also be mobile garages under which you can hide, and which you can drag behind you in action.

The garage shown in the picture above is easy to build. It is enough to make an object in the shape of a house from a 3 mm thick sheet. This object should be placed on wheels that can be rotated in all directions, like the wheels on the trolley that we have in front of every department store. A metal garage like this would have to be high and wide enough to fit any tank under it. When the tank is parked in the settlement, the garage underneath it could look like any other small house. A plasticized tarpaulin painted in the shape of laid tiles could be placed on the upper part, and a tarpaulin with drawn windows and doors could be placed on the sides, and in that way it would be masked. When the tank goes into action, it could pull the garage in two ways. One way is to drag the garage behind it, and the other way is to connect the corners of the tank under the garage with the corners of the garage and the tank would be protected from the impact of shells while driving. If he wanted to affect the planes, he could go under the garage for a short time and quickly come back. In defensive positions, the garage could be lined with sandbags or earth and then turned into a defensive tank bunker.

There is enough space between the walls of the garage and the tank to accommodate narrow prefabricated folding beds on which the crew could sleep, so that the garage would also be a shelter for the crew during rest periods.
