I hated to call dispatch and say "Hey Earl....you remember that BFG I pulled out of the yard yesterday???...Well you ain't gonna beleive this chit......."[/QUOTE
So...what did Earl say....HUH??
Been nice knowing ya...well not really...
Ever heard of the "soap on a rope" theory? If not...do a search....quickly
I presume that she's in the "transport configuration" and that when deployed the barrel would be rotated 180 degrees so that the tongue would be the stabilizer. Also "expanded" for towing to use the barrel as a counterweight, thus reducing tongue weight/loading by shifting the center of gravity over the axle. Notice that in the "compressed configuration" the muzzle hangs beyond the lunette and would prevent towing with a duece, 5-ton, or anything else with a tailgate or box overhanging the pintle hook.
These are just observations.... and presumptions... Any confirmation or counterpoints out there ? ? ? ?
