Hello loves,

David Fletcher MBE is back with a very short Tank Chats video, this time he talks about what I believe is one of the weirdest things The Tank Museum currently owns, the Praying Mantis:

The Praying Mantis is an experimental machine-gun carrier manufactured in 1943.

Praying Mantis was designed by Mr E J Tapp of County Commercial Cars and the original patent dates from 1937. Two prototypes were built of which this is the second. The idea was to create a low profile weapon carrier which could take advantage of natural cover but raise itself up, as necessary, to shoot over walls or other obstacles.
