WWII Soldiers Ride Captured Tiny Tanks

Published July 21, 2021

Historical footage recorded during the second World War shows that not much has changed when it comes to the attitude of troops on the ground. Admit it, you would be doing the same thing as these guys.


For a bit of historical context, the piece of gear featured in this video is called the Goliath Sd.kfz 302. It was designed by a German Inventor after the first World War. The purpose of the vehicle was to drive a remotely controlled explosive package up to an Allied vehicle, and detonate, rendering the Allied vehicle at the very least a mobility kill.


They first saw service in 1942, and they were present everywhere that the Wehrmacht fought. A few of the vehicles were even spotted during the beach landings of Normandy, however an overwhelming majority of them had already been disabled by artillery fire. According to some reports, a total of 7,564 Goliaths were produced, but almost none of them were ever deployed as they were simply too expensive to make.


Kind of crazy to think how far back in time drone warfare really goes.
